Today is the big day... The day that we,REALTORS, will still be stuck in the mud or the day we pull our self up by the bootstraps and make a change to become the best that we can. I don't know what will happen today at the NAR board meeting, but I am sure it will be a day in history. 
Inman News did a story yesterday that I feel nailed it. Take a look and see. I say it is time to clean house and make wholesale changes in the way our agreement is with realtor.com. Today is the day you … (0 comments)

realtors: How to choose the best agent - 05/28/08 07:31 AM
The process of buying or selling a home is filled with decisions. You can base many of those decisions on objective criteria, like how many bedrooms you want or what price comparable homes have fetched. Often, though, people decide which agent to hire without giving it much thought at all. That could be a big mistake. Just because an agent is successful doesn't guarantee that he or she is the best agent for you. With so much riding on this transaction, you not only want someone who understands your goals and has the ability to help you achieve them; you also … (5 comments)

realtors: Write it down - 04/01/08 07:05 AM
Want to decrease your chances of ending up embroiled in a lawsuit when you buy or sell property? Then don't rely on verbal agreements.
Real estate deals are usually some of the most complicated, expensive transactions in people's lives. Yet, time and again, misunderstandings occur. Buyers think sellers promised to make certain repairs. Sellers assert that the buyers agreed to let them stay in the home after closing. It doesn't matter if you're outlining your relationship with an agent, making an offer on a home, negotiating repairs, or some other key task. Get it in writing.

realtors: Easy ways to get your home ready to sell - 01/13/08 10:06 PM
If you plan to sell your home, I have good news for you: You can increase your chances of quickly receiving an acceptable purchase offer. I'm not suggesting major financial investments or hugely time-consuming tasks. Take these simple steps that you can handle on your own, and they will pay off.
Give it a good scrub I can't tell you how many homes for sale I've visited that were just plain filthy-food-stained walls, muddy carpets, dried dog slobber on the windows. If ever there was a time to roll up your sleeves and clean house, this is it. You don't want … (2 comments)
