bank owned joliet il: The RIGHT Buyer WILL Come Along and She Did! - 05/08/12 05:39 AM
I had a listing with the nicest couple. Original owners and just wonderful, wonderful people.
The house was perfect and so well-maintained.
I listed it last July.
We had a lot of showings but not one offer.
I could tell my sellers were getting anxious. They always wanted to know the exact feedback and checked in with me before I could check in with them! They didn't want to do any open houses as in our area, they just aren't popular to do anymore. You worry more about nosy neighbors and people that might steal from you!
FINALLY in March … (7 comments)

bank owned joliet il: How Many Homes Do You Show Your Buyer? - 05/07/12 06:01 AM

bank owned joliet il: Buyers Decide Within 8 Seconds Whether They Are Interested In A Home - 05/07/12 05:33 AM
I am a huge fan of Real Estate Agent and Mogul Barbara Corcoran. Barbara is a Real Estate Contributor on NBC's Today show and the wonderful addition to ABC's Shark Tank. Per Barbara:
"BUYERS DECIDE WITHIN 8 SECONDS WHETHER THEY ARE INTERESTED IN YOUR HOME."
I'm not surprised by this at all. It's the first impression when walking in and hearing "Wow, this is cute" or "Ugh, what is that smell?" pretty much sums of the next few minutes of the tour of that home.
I always tell my buyers that they will know when they walk in if this is … (96 comments)

bank owned joliet il: Missed a Great Opportunity Because You are Not Preapproved! - 02/21/12 12:50 PM
I was contacted by a buyer asking about a 4 flat in Joliet. Before I do ANYTHING, I ask that buyer to get preapproved. I will not show properties unless I know they can write an offer.  He contacted me DECEMBER 19, 2011!
I repeatedly told him I needed to make sure he could purchase the property before showing it to him. I constantly checked in with him. I followed up with him on Monday and he said he was (finally) going to get around to going to the website I suggested to get preapproved.
Today I rec'd this email from … (2 comments)
