 I work with a lot of first-time home buyers. I love working with first-timers because I get to educate them on the home buying process and be their support system for all the excitement of finding the "one" and then the stress and negotiation of the contract and inspections, and finally the closing.Along the way, usually the most educational part of the process is the home inspection. I've been selling real estate in the Kansas City area since 2009, so I've been to my fair share of home inspections and I learn something new every time. First time buyers usually walk away from the home inspection looking almost like a deer in the headlights, regardless of whether the inspection was very good with only minor repairs being needed, or very bad, with nearly every system in the house needing...

This weekend I was helping another first-time buyer make an offer on yet another house with multiple offers. The house was priced very competitively and was something you usually see on TV, surrounded by a beautiful Overland Park, Kansas, neighborhood that was full of homes that had been restored to their former glory or have been very well maintained over the years, or even lots that have had their former homes torn down and then rebuilt upon. While this house was a little small for this buyer and she knew she woudln't be there too long, she didn't have any concerns about overimproving the property should she decided to put on an addition. Upon walking in, she loved the house immediately and knew that she could live there. The listing agent had required that all offers include a 48-hou...

Technology - The Good, The Bad and the Ugly!  Yesterday seemed like a wasted afternoon spent with a cranky piece of technology.  In this business, we allot our time according to some sort of guideline.  Whether it's calling clients, working on files, or whatever we need to get done during the day.  But I doubt we ever allot time JUST for repairing technology.  Spending almost three hours with one technician was the most unusual experience in quite some time. Not only did I NOT plan on spending that much time without that piece of technology, but I spent most of it doing mental gymnastics of things I could have been doing. Starting most of my mornings, I'll peruse my phone and eliminate any junk mail while half heartedly looking in the mirror making myself look presentable for the day.

We all know what a listed home is. When a homeowner wants to sell their home they list it with a realtor. The realtor then markets the home to potential buyers by puting a for sale sign in the yard and posting it online to places like zillow, trulia, realtor.com and facebook but what is a listed buyer.If you have been searching for a home online you probably have noticed that homes are selling very quickly, you probably may have tried to schedule a showing on several only to be told that the house is already "Under Contract" . Ask yourself, how did that buyer get to this house so quickly? Do they know something that we don't?The answer is yes, they are a listed buyer. They hired a proactive buyers agent who has taken their needs and have marketed them directly to listing agent and every...

In case you haven't been paying attention to the news or the internet, the real estate market is hot again. What that really means is that there are more buyers than sellers or in simple terms it is a "sellers market". Right now there are an estimated 3-4 buyers looking for every 1 home listing on the market.So if you are a seller that is great, right? Not necesarily for a lot of sellers. It seems the problem for many is that they don't particularily like any of the homes listed in the neighborhoods they want to move up into or their favorite homes sell immediatley. We are in the hottest sellers market since 2005, yet most sellers won't put their house on the market. So what is the answer? How do I move up from my current home while the sales are hot and still take advantage of low rate...

I've been saying this for about 6-8 months and today I'm going to back up my claims with some market statistics recently released from the Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors: Median Real Estate Prices in Johnson County, KS are up 10.6%. Average Real Estate Prices are up 9%.  What does this mean for you? Well, let me give an example - my husband and I moved our family last year. It became clear within a few months that if we had waited, we wouldn't have been able to afford the house we ultimately decided would be our "forever" home.  If you are considering a move, now is the time. Prices will continue to rise and interest rates are remaining at near-record lows. As interest rates begin to rise, which will likely happen this fall, each .25 point change in interest will change th...
