glen russell: Short Sale Guide & Timeline - 03/19/09 08:15 AM
I'm sure many agents know the term "short sale" all too well. However, I still receive multiple phone calls every day from agents with questions about every aspect of it. Worst of all, is the constant phone calls during the waiting period.
 

 
To clear things up...here is a clear description of a short sale - and the AVERAGE time line.
Short Sale - A work out program that allows the customer to sell the home for less than total amount owed. Upon final approval, a short sale can help homeowners avoid further collection activity or foreclosure action.

glen russell: My Personal Formula for Great Property Booklets! - 10/23/08 02:19 PM
Whenever I get a new listing, there are a lot of things that need to be done. Post it to all my marketing websites, record the new talking house and 800 number script etc. But the one thing I do that sellers really appreciate is the property booklet.
It's also great for buyers who are viewing the home. If they are going to see multiple homes in one day, and my listing is the only one they walk away w/ somethihng to remind them of all the great features, my chances of them deciding on taking a second look greaten.

 Advertising is something I believe you can never have or do too much of. I currently use so many different strategies, It's hard to keep track of everything I'm paying for. I decided last month to have my administrative asst. keep track of all the calls that came in based on where they were referred from. Here's what she showed me.
The Real Estate Book (The actual Book) - Created 22 Calls - 2 of which resulted in an agreement.

glen russell: Get Rid of ALL That Junk - Garage Sale Tips - 10/09/08 11:23 AM
This week, my girlfriends daughter is getting ready to move out of our home, and in with her boyfriend. She is 23 years old, and should know better than this, but as always, she has waited to the last minute to do ANYTHING other than fill my garage with empty boxes. As she's laying on the couch during a perfectly good saturday, I snap and tell her it's time for a garage sale.
To my surprise, she actually seemed excited about the idea. Over the past 2 weeks, we've planned, sold, and packed together. It's been a great time, and we … (3 comments)

glen russell: What To Do With Your Property in The Midst of A Divorce?? - 10/08/08 04:00 PM
Divorce is a tough situation which opens many emotional and financial issues to be solved. One of the most important issues is what to do about the house.
In my opinion, you have 4 basic options:
1. Sell the house NOW and divide up the proceeds.
Your primary consideration under these circumstances is to maximimze your homes selling price. We can help you avoid the common mistakes most homeowners make, which compromise this outcome.
As you work to get your financial affairs in order, make sure you understand what your net proceeds will be. Ex) After selling expenses, and after determining … (0 comments)

glen russell: Glen Russell - Collegeville PA Real Estate Agent's - Collegeville BOROUGH Market Analysis - 10/06/08 03:16 PM
 
The actual borough of Collegeville PA is very small, and often confused for the entire Collegeville area.
The information listed about is calculated from October 2007 - until August 2008.
For an area with a population of only 4,600, that is only 1.6 square miles in size, there sure is a lot of business going on!
Clearly my team and I do business in many more areas, and I would love to do a market analysis for any area in question.
Make it an awesome day & never hesitate to call for any of your real estate needs!

glen russell: Trade Up Mistakes to Avoid in Collegeville PA - 10/02/08 10:59 AM
Unlike to experience of buying your first home, when you're looking to move up, and already own a home, there are certain factors that can complicate the situation. It is very important for you to consider these issues before you LIST  your home for sale.
Not only is there the issue of financing to consider, but you also have to sell your present home at exactly the right time in order to avoid either the financial burden of owning two homes or, even worse, the dilemma of having no place to live during the gap between closings.
These common mistakes have … (0 comments)

14. Deal Killer Odors - Must Go! -
Odd smells such as food, pets, and smoking that you may not notice, can often times be deal breakers. If a potential buyer knows you have a pet or smoke, they may start being aware of odors and seeing stains that may not even exist. Don't leave any clues! 15. Be a Smart Seller - Disclose EVERYTHING -
Smart sellers are proactive in disclosing all known defects to their buyers in writing. This can reduce liability and prevent lawsuits down the road. 16. It's … (0 comments)
