Okay, that was what you did pretty much all year long in 2009 in the real estate market.  How many good deals and low interest rate did you miss out?  2009 came and gone, and 2010 is here now, the extended and expanded tax credit is going to expire in April, only 3 months left for you to do something.  What do you have in mind?  Do you plan to put your foot to play with the water just to get it wet a little, and step out again? I have seen a few of my clients missed out at least 2-3 good deals and the once low interest rate in 2009.  The common mistake is they think they can wait, and should wait.  All the good bargain homes were sold one by one, and the interest rate is now over 5%. Do we as a REALTOR® , have a crystal ball, can predict what the future bring?  A Big NO.  Do we know our...

2009 is almost over before you know it, 15 days to be exact.  If you are thinking to put your house on the market in 2010, I would like to suggest a few things: Put up that Christmas tree: When holiday is over, put up all the Christmas decorations before listing your house.  They are nice for the holidays, but it will be tacky if they are still part of your home decor after Christmas. De-clutter: Show the space you have.  De-clutter, clean out the closet, maybe donate those used clothes that you don't wear anymore, it is still cold weather, lots of charity organizations would love to have extra warm clothes for needed families. Play the opposite role: Act like you are the buyer, not the seller.  What would you like to see when you look for a house?  Any clean, tidy home is always better...

With the new $6,500 tax credit for existing home owners till 4/30/10, I can foresee more home owners are more ready and willing to put their home on the market.  Is your house ready for sale, or you need to do some projects first? Do you like to watch "Weekend Warriors" on HGTV, doesn't it bring the inner contractor side out of you?  All the demolition, design, vision, color matching......just can't wait to start that project you have been putting away, can you?  There is nothing to it, it only takes those home owners one or some weekend/s from start to finish, I can do that.  Or is it really? Unless you are absolutely 100% sure what you are doing, and how to do it.  When unexpected problems come up, can you solve it yourself?  Taking on a big project requires persistence and serious pl...
