real estate: Is listing your property with family or a friend really the best idea? - 02/02/13 07:46 AM

We have heard it all before, "but my sister in law is a real estate agent" or "my best friend is a real estate agent', so I have to list with them.  But do you really?  Is this really in your best interest?  Are you allowing your loyalty get in the way of making a smart decision when it comes to your real estate agent's qualificiations?

real estate: I was published in October 2011 National Association of Realtor Magazine! - 11/05/11 04:29 PM
Don't Sabotage Sales Many real estate practitioners fail to take the basic steps needed to get from signed listing agreement to closing. October 2011 | By James L. Katz   Eleven years into my real estate career, I can still hear the words of my first boss like it was yesterday, “Even if you’re just a sock folder, be the best sock folder you can be!” I’ve made it my practice to follow that advice—and share it with the many agents I’ve mentored over the years.

real estate: Some strategies to getting Short Sales Approved - 09/04/11 10:24 AM
 
Short Sales can be very frustrating if you or your real estate agent do not know how to work properly with the bank, and in order to obtain an approval for your short sale, you will need to impress the lender.  I have been doing Aventura Short Sales with tremendous success, and along with many other key components, there is one secret to getting a short sale approved by the bank quickly.  This secret is strength of contract!  People believe that the banks care mainly about the purchase price, which is not true.  The banks care more about resolving the issue quickly.

real estate: Not all home inspectors are created equal! - 07/19/11 11:31 AM
When choosing a Home Inspector for your home, be sure that they are qualified to give an adequate inspection, or else you can end up with some serious issues that you thought were properly inspected.  In many states, including Florida, you simply need to pass a Home Inspector course and after a 2-3 day class and a test, you are an official "home inspector".  This doesnt impress me much, and if given this informatio, I doubt many buyers would want this type of inspector conducting the inspection on the house that they are looking to call home.  I have been practicing real estate for 12 years in … (2 comments)
