dream house: Your Dream Home. By Dan Polimino. - 05/17/11 11:55 PM
There really are some important factors that everyone should consider if you want to find your dream home. Here is what I think are the top six things to consider when starting your search.
* Neighborhood. This seems obvious, but what I like to tell buyers is that when they first start thinking about moving, drive around some neighborhoods and get a feel of what looks good to you. Then take that knowledge to the internet to find out more.
* Children. If you have kids, how important is it for you to be in a certain school district? If so, … (0 comments)

dream house: The Bearer of Bad News, By Dan Polimino - 06/29/09 12:17 AM
Lately, we (realtors) have the unenviable task of being the bearers of bad news. It seems more than ever we are having conversations with people about what the market is telling us regarding the price of their home, or we are talking to sellers about lowering the price of their property. As expected and given the recession, rarely is it good or welcomed news. I know that a lot of home owners believe that there is a course in real estate school wherein the first thing an agent is taught is to recite the following sentence, “We need to lower the … (0 comments)

dream house: Integrity, By Dan Polimino - 06/15/09 03:37 AM
The story goes like this: A friend of mine who is a mortgage lender was really upset and was having a horrible week when I called. It turns out that he got involved in a loan transaction for some questionable people (both the buyer and real estate agent). Now, what he knew and when he knew it is not germane to the story, but the bottom line is that my friend took all the blame when things went bad even though he was not at fault and was out significant time and money.
I seem to hear one story after another … (0 comments)

dream house: Moving In To Make Ends Meet, By Dan Polimino - 06/10/09 01:43 AM
Last week, I wrote a column about the human toll of foreclosure. Not exactly an upbeat story, but one that needed to be told. This week is a feel good story about the never say die attitude of Americans and how coming together as a family may just be the answer to difficult economic times.
It was in April when I was watching a news story on a cable network channel about an immigrant father who purchased his first new home well into his latter working years. He bought it at the peak or at the top of the housing boom. … (0 comments)

dream house: It Pays to Be Flexible, By Dan Polimino - 04/26/09 11:47 PM
The story goes like this. An agent with buyers wants to see a home on short notice. The sellers have indicated in the MLS they need a 24-hour notice for showings. But the buying agent asks the selling agent if they can see the house with only a two-hour notice. The selling agent asks the sellers and they say no, but insist they’d like to set it up for another time. The sellers never hear from the buying agent again because the buyers went up the street to see a house they could get into and bought it later that day.

dream house: Now’s The Best Time To Build, By Dan Polimino - 03/30/09 11:46 PM
You think I'm crazy, don't you. You may think it's not a good time to do anything, but I've been talking to builders lately and they make a strong case for why it's never been a better time to build. Cornerstone Homes owner KC Jones says, "Material costs are down. Labor is very accessible and costs are down. And land prices are also considerably lower." Sounds good to me, so let's take a closer look at each of his claims.
Material costs are down. Jones says last year at this time a typical window package he would order for one of … (0 comments)
