What are my options when selling my Albuquerque home?

Are you thinking about selling your Albuquerque home? You have several options to consider here are a few of those.

1. You can try to sell it yourself. AKA “For Sale By Owner” or FSBO.  Just because it’s number one here doesn’t necessarily mean it’s your best option however.  All too often FSBO’s believe they will save the commission paid to a Realtor®.  Statistics show that FSBO properties often net less proceeds than had they used a full service brokerage. When a Realtor® has a client interested in an Albuquerque FSBO the … (26 comments)

Home is Where the Heart Is
This photo takes us back to a different time and a different pace when life was harder but simpler when who we were was more important than what we had and when family was the cornerstone. This old house has certainly seen a turn of the times but still stands to remind us that Home is Where the Heart Is.

home: There's No Place Like Home - We're Back! - 10/21/12 02:25 PM
There's no place like home and We’re Back!  After 16 days and 2800 road miles we have returned home to, Albuquerque, New Mexico. As they say it is great to get away and take a vacation but in reality there's no place like home.  
We certainly enjoyed our trip, seeing family, playing with grand-kids and catching up with many friends.  Business did follow along and thanks to modern technology I was able to keep transactions in motion and on track.  Thanks to each of you for your loyalty of following our blog during our travels.  We appreciate each of you … (38 comments)

There’s No Place Like Home
To many it’s all about keeping up with the Joneses thinking that bigger is better and more is...well more.  To some it’s about living within one’s means and saving for the future.  To some home is where the heart is. I think this photo depicts the fact that there’s no place like home, beautifully. It may not be much but you can sure tell it has been loved for a very long time.  If there’s no place like home, what is home to you?  If you’re considering the sale or purchase of your Albuquerque or Rio … (34 comments)
