coldwell banker united: Tapping every avenue when holding an open house - 08/15/14 09:30 AM
 
Are you tapping every avenue when holding an open house?
 
When holding an open house the normal channels of getting the word out is always a given..advertising in the paper, on the internet, MLS, Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com etc. Hand written notes to the neighbors and of course direct mail.
 
I received an email from an agent recently, and I was impressed that the agent took the time to research recently sold homes in the area of their open house and came up with a list of the agents who represented the buyers of these homes.
 
Here was … (22 comments)

Hook ’em Horns! 2014 Football Schedule
 
The first home game is right around the corner at the University Of Texas! Here is the fall line up..the first two games are playing in Austin!

 
We have a new coach so expect some changes. Coach Charlie Strong’s five core values are posted throughout the Longhorn’s football facility!
 
1.    Honesty
2.    No hurting women
3.    No drugs
4.    No stealing
5.    No guns
 
Charlie is setting the bar high…..a violation of any of these core values means a player doesn’t value being on the team…sounds fair to me!

coldwell banker united: The Third Time is The Charm; Hopefully! - 05/21/14 03:37 PM
In our market in Austin the inventory remains low and home prices are escalating so when a new listing comes on market there is a feeding frenzy! Agents are falling all over themselves to get their clients into the house. If the clients like it all they are drawing up an offer and firing it over. Multiple offers are common place.
It is a seller’s market but with that comes its challenges. Buyers are forced to make quick decisions and if they haven’t looked at many communities and a number of homes they will second guess their rapid fire assessment of … (42 comments)
