My mind is still spinning from all the CRS Sell-a-Bration events, networking, and education sessions over the last few days! I  I just returned from Dallas where I attended Sell-a-Bration, the annual real estate conference for Certified Residental Specialists. It’s been a whirlwind of informative education sessions addressing topics such as video marketing for real estate, listing and marketing strategies, luxury real estate auctions, tax issues affecting real estate investments as well as tax changes for the real estate practitioner, and how to use IRAs to invest in real estate, just to name a few.The opening session featured a top national, motivational speaker, Mel Robbins, talking about how to take control of your life -  “5-4-3-2-1 GO” was buzzing throughout the rest of the two day...

Home sales in the golf course community of Timber Pines in Spring Hill, Florida performed very well in 2017!While the total number of homes and villas sold in the Timber Pines golf course community remained stable, sold prices for homes sold in Timber Pines were on the increase compared to the previous year!     In 2017, 239 homes sold in the Timber Pines community - only four units more than in 2016.

The Florida Realtors winter business meetings continued today. I started by attending the Professional Development Committee meeting and then the Legal Update with lots of great infomation about the latest rules and legislation on various subjects including copright, MLS of choice, and disclosure issues.  The highlight of today for me was the Global Business Committee that I am a member of. International real estate is my passion and I will not miss an opportunity to learn more about doing business with people from other countries.Today, the Honorable Ken Okaniwa, Consulate General of Japan, was addressing the Global Business Committee members with a presentation about investing in Japan.   Japan has a robust economy and a great infrastructure, they are also innovative and have a sophis...

Make Magic in Real Estate" is the 2018 motto for Florida Realtors who are kicking off the year this week with the mid-winter business meetings and installation of 2018 officers.   It's been a busy two days already for me with leadership planning meetings for the Residential Real Estate Council of Florida. What has been known as the Council of Certfied Residential Specialists has recently been renamed to Residential Real Estate Council (RRC) and the council is undergoing some rebranding. We have a great team of leaders who will work for the members in Florida and continue to offer top education, programs, and events throughout the year.   We also heard from top economists in the country and Florida about the economic outlook nationally and in Florida including an update on the residentia...

When I first saw the word Weltanschauung pop up on ActiveRain I was a little surprised. As a native speaker of German, I didn't have any issues pronouncing, spelling, or understanding the word. What I was curious about though was what a - literally translated - "world view" has to do with a blogging platform such as ActiveRain.  Photo Credit: Pixabay.com The point is that ActiveRain is much more than a just a platform. It is a community, comprised of people from many different walks of life, joined by common or similar interests and professions mostly surrounding the real estate industry. ActiveRain has given members an outlet to let their voices be heard about topics that are of interest to not only to other members but also the public in general. The Oxford dictionary defines Weltansc...

Pricing your Spring Hill home for sale is an important part of marketing. Without the right price, all advertising and promotion could result in nothing, not to mention all the efforts you as the homeowner go through when putting your home on the market.Recently, while looking through homes for sale that are listed in our local multiple listing service, I noticed that some homes are priced at odd numbers. And yes, there were those that were just one dollar - and in the extreme just one penny - below the next price point marker. This may be a great pricing strategy for supermarket goods but most homebuyers will see right through this and recognize it as a pricing gimmick. After all, for all practical purposes the home is priced at $200,000.Sometimes home sellers are afraid of going to th...

In 2017, I worked on five home sales where all furnishings were included in the sale, sometimes right down to silverware, towels, linens, and decorative items. The sellers took away only personal items.Even now, I am working with two different properties where buyers requested in their offer that the furniture is to be left with the house. Sometimes it makes good sense to offer a home fully furnished or turn key. Especially in areas where many people own vacation, winter, or second homes, it is convenient to leave the furnishings with the house when it sells. For this same reason, some buyers specifically look for homes that include furniture and other furnishings. Sometimes, buyers make offers that include furnishings even though the home has not been offered as a furnished home.   The...

It's great to get together with friends and colleagues and it's extra special during the holidays. Today, a group of Certified Residential Specialists from the Tampa Bay area got together for a holiday luncheon at the Rusty Pelican in Tampa, Florida.Everyone had fun and a good time over good food and great conversations. We also learned about some changes to the CRS designation and received information about upcoming classes and programs.As in every year, we also collected toys and gifts for children with cancer. By time the event was over, the gift table had filled up to capacity!  Of all REALTORS® working today, only about three percent have completed the advanced training, education, and transaction experience required to earn the CRS designation. Working with a Certified Residential...
