real estate for sale: What would make you pull the trigger to sell or buy a house this month - 07/10/12 10:57 AM
We live in a trickle down real estate market here in Washington State.  The three counties surrounding King County (Seattle), Snohomish, Pierce and Thurston Counties all see King County take the lead with a very strong market.

This recent local television report depicts the strong Seattle market as we wait for signs of these happening elsewhere;
King 5 News Report
Here in Pierce County, we have already seen a weakening of the buyers market into more of a neutral market.  The amount of houses actively for sale has dropped for the last two months as market demand increased.

real estate for sale: Are your client's color blind or are they blinded by the color? - 04/27/12 08:20 AM
Is your client color blind or are they blinded by the color?

Does the color of your house really matter when trying to buy a house?  It matters to some buyers!
I've had buyers in my car and we pull up in front of a house that meets or exceeds all of their criteria (including price) yet the color of the house is the big turnoff.  One client would not even get out of the car because of the color of the house. 
I try to explain that the color of the house can be changed, we can even make … (5 comments)

real estate for sale: My gas don't stink... - 04/13/12 10:40 AM
The State of Washington (as of April 1st) just enacted a law that requires all residential properties to have a working Carbon Monoxide alarm installed before OR at the time of closing. Carbon Monoxide, is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is slightly lighter than air. It has been shown to be toxic to humans and animals when encountered in higher concentrations.
No one has a problem with this measure  however people are not understanding that unlike smoke detectors, Carbon Monoxide is a slightly lighter than air gas by product that builds from the floor up. A detector needs to be mounted within two … (8 comments)

real estate for sale: Is our lingo confusing? - 04/12/12 09:52 AM
 
Make sure that your client knows the true meaning of what you are saying.  We are so use to using real estate slang that sometimes the general public doesn't understand.  Words like stale have different meanings to people outside of real estate.

I once had a client who I told that her house was beginning to get stale on the market. She misunderstood or I miss represented the meaning of stale.This lead to an abundance of air fresheners spread throughout her house. The conflicting smells were obnoxious to say the least. But her house was not stale any longer... 
Sometimes different … (44 comments)

real estate for sale: Watch out for slivers while you sit on that fence! - 04/11/12 04:14 PM
As my Assistant points out!

The difference between sleeping on a deal and snoring should be pointed out.
When you sit on a deal, usually by the next morning, you have an answer.
If you're snoring on a deal, someone is going to take advantage of your sitting on the fence too long.  
Watch out for slivers while you sit on that fence!

real estate for sale: Can you stop the ringing? - 04/04/12 11:03 PM
While striving to get through my continuing education credits for my license, it has become very apparent that our cell phone rule our lives (not to mention our business)!

Most of my classemates can't make it, 10 minutes into the class, before you see them grab their phone and look at the screen.  I explain to all my active clients that will be in class from such and such a time till such and such a time.  Please leave me a detailed message and I will get back to you during a break with the answer.  Then I shut off my … (14 comments)

real estate for sale: Don't just treat the symptoms, go after the problem itself! - 04/03/12 11:44 AM
 It all started with a strange smell coming from the furnace room of our cabin at Hartstene Pointe.  Now all of us know in our heart of hearts that a smell in the furnace room permeates the whole house.  I am not a bloodhound however after smelling the same raunchy odor from more than one forced air register, I knew where to start my search.
As I opened the furnished room door the commotion began.  Out of the corner of my eye I saw a raccoon leaping towards the door I had just opened.  Screeching (not just me)! I did not … (15 comments)

real estate for sale: Please don't scam the clients!!! - 04/02/12 11:12 PM
Please don't scam the clients!!!
I got a phone call from a client who received a letter from another real estate agent.  In this letter, the agent proclaimed she had a buyer for my clients unlisted property.  My client was ecstatic, to say the least.  She gave me the letter and told me to contact the other agent and get it done. 

I looked up the other agent before calling her.  She had several listings in the development of my clients vacant land and so I call her and left a message.
The first time I looked at the letter, … (75 comments)

Continuing education...
It's that time again and I need another 30 clock HRS to keep my real estate brokers license.  This year I have decided to be proactive and not wait till the last minute and scramble to obtain my clock hours.  It has really worked out well as I have taken some very interesting classes as of late.  I decided to take live attendance classes this cycle mainly because I did my classes online last cycle and found I didn't learn as much as I could have. … (12 comments)

Failure is success if we learn from it...
