Nevertheless, these are the mistakes buyers continue making that end up costing them the home of their dream.

This ain't your grandma's real estate market, the process for selling a home and getting top dollar have changed so much. With 30 years of selling homes in Tallahassee, I have seen it all. Starting from the pre-internet days when market-time was a factor due to film development and publication schedule dates, through a pandemic and low-interest rate seller's market where multiple offers are the norm. The fact is this. You just don't sell a home today as you did even 5 years ago. If you plan on selling a home now or in the next few months, take advantage of my experience and use this advice for getting your home sold within a predictable time frame for as much money as possible.Tips For Selling A House For Top DollarPlease remember to "like" the post and the video on YouTube too!

If you are buying a home and you DO NOT have school-aged children (or you do but they attend private school), there are still reasons to consider the strength of the schools for which each prospective home you like is zoned.You probably realize that buyers with school-aged children always prioritize school zones in their home search. But did you realize that those without public school needs should be doing so too?And it's not for the reason that you might think (many agents will tell you that resale values are higher in certain school zones).I have produced a short video that fully explains the benefits for buyers (WITHOUT school-aged children) to include school zone information when shopping to buy a home. Why School Zones Matter To ALL Homebuyers Please remember to "like" the post an...

The November 2020 Inventory Report is ready to go, and the theme for November is “musical chairs.”As you know, “Musical Chairs” is a party game in which players compete for a decreasing number of chairs, the losers in successive rounds being those unable to find a chair to sit on when the accompanying music is abruptly stopped.So how does this relate to the housing market? Well, watch the video through the end. I’ll show you who the players are, what the music is, and when the hunt for chairs will come to an end! How Musical Chairs Is Played In Real EstatePlease remember to "like" the post and the video on YouTube too!

Up until now, the hot sheet was proprietary information only available to paid members of the MLS. But recognizing that inventory is so low in the Tallahassee real estate market, I have developed a consumer hot sheet that will be very useful to those looking to buy and/or sell a home. This will allow you to look at the market and at listings with insider information; it's almost like you have a real estate license. This video explains what you will find in the hot sheet, and how to get access to it.   Here's Your Real Estate Hot SheetPlease remember to "like" the post and the video on YouTube too!

I was recently asked about the benefits of having a buyers agent when buying a home from a builder. Specifically, she asked why she should use a buyer's agent for new construction?My short answer is that you should always hire a well-trained advocate to help you buy any real estate, including new construction homes. This video though will specifically address several benefits of having your own advocate when purchasing a brand new home, whether it has already been built or if you plan to have one built to your own specifications. The benefits are significant, and the few minutes you invest watching this video will likely put tens of thousands of dollars into your pocket when you buy your new home. Why Use A Buyer's Agent?Please remember to "like" the post and the video on YouTube too!

What Are Distressed Properties? I received this question from "Rich" who asked: "Joe, what is your definition of a "Distressed Property" - foreclosure, disrepair, time on the market, location?"That's a great question because we have a ton of people who have registered to receive our regularly updated list of distressed properties for sale in Tallahassee, so I know the topic is very popular today. In fact, it’s not uncommon for people just entering the market to buy a home to be focused on distressed properties, so I know the topic is a timely one still today. I have produced this short video to fully explain the definition of distressed property and provided some important tips on how to approach buying a distressed home.

The term "luxury home" has many meanings to different people. As with many things, "Luxury" is in the eye of the beholder. When it comes to real estate though, luxury is often defined by lifestyle, location, amenities, land size, as well as the physical size of a home.For today's report, we include all homes priced in the top 1% of the market. As a different twist, we'll also include three recent luxury home sales to see how the sellers fared, and three current luxury home listings to show you that the information you receive on them is usually not even close to accurate.Luxury Homes Sales Report October 2020I promised quite a few links in the video, you can find them below:ℹ️ 30 Years Of Luxury Home Salesℹ️ Current Luxury Home Listingsℹ️ 1st Luxury Home Saleℹ️ 2nd Luxury Home Saleℹ️ 3r...
