Hopefully this shut down will help some of these sea lion pups survive . . .
Late Wednesday afternoon, the Pacific Fishery Management Council voted to close the commercial sardine fishery along the U.S. West Coast for the remainder of the fishing season (through June 30, 2015). This action followed the Council’s vote over the weekend to close the commercial fishery for the July 1, 2015–June 30, 2016 season because of concerns over low sardine numbers. Sardine numbers have fallen well below minimum threshold established in...

PROS & CONS Of Open Houses In Real Estate
Open houses are a highly debated topic in real estate.  Some will swear by them and others will say they are a complete waste of time.

As with everything, there are PROS and CONS to open houses.  An example of a positive outcome from open houses is the opportunity for Realtors to pick up additional buyers.  An example of a negative outcome is the possibility for theft.

My personal opinion is that open houses are a great opportunity for a newer agent just getting started in the business who is in need of picking up additional buyers.  An agent who has proven results and experience does not need open houses to sell a home, there are many other ways to accomplish this goal.

Check out this article that provides many different PROS as well as the possible CONS of open houses in real estate at

In addition to the article, you will find some excellent resources relating to open houses from +RISMedia as well as +Bill Gassett.

Should You Ask For Seller Concessions
Knowing what seller concessions are, how they can benefit you, and the implications of asking for them are all considerations that buyers should consider (with input from their agent).

As +Kyle Hiscock deftly points out in this excellent article, if you don't need them, do not ask for them. If you do need them, this article will certainly help guide you in the right direction.

Kyle has also included resources from other top RE bloggers to include: +Andrew Fortune, +Lynn Pineda, +Ryan Lundquist, +Debbie Drummond, +Veterans United, and +Bill Gassett

I've never really had appraisal issues with raising the contract price to cover seller concessions unless the initial offered price is too high to begin with.  Many times a buyer will appeal to the seller's greed by offering either full price or over to cover closing costs.

It the initial price is too high to begin with than, yeah, the appraisal may come in lower.

The blog post misses another point, though: the seller's state of mind.  I have worked with many a seller that have told me that "I didn't get closing help when I bought this house. I'm not offering any. If they don't have the money, they shouldn't be buying the house."

Of course, that leads to a negotiation between the seller and listing agent about keeping the seller's eyes on the prize (i.e., selling the house).

It always amazes me how much negotiation about pretty much everything in the real estate transaction is not between the buyer's agent and the listing agent. It's between the agent and their client to get to where they said they want to be....
