The First Offer Is Often the Best

I recently received an outstanding offer on a condo/townhome within a few days of being on the market. It was the very first offer and it turned out to the be the best offer we received – this happens more often than not. In fact, it will set the new high for the complex in the last 8 months. Take your first offer seriously, because it’s often your best offer. To hear more, watch my latest video.

What Will the Market Look Like in the Year Ahead?

Happy New Year! Now that we’ve started into the first quarter of 2018, it’s a good time to reflect on the 2017 market and look ahead to what’s coming this year. The 2017 market was great.

Thinking about selling your Investment property? This is absolutely the best way to do it! So how do you get 60 buyers and investors to one showing in a two-hour period and generate 18 offers, most of which are over asking price?
It’s simple-- price the subject property just under market value and have one showing time.

Which Real Estate Website Should You Use?

If you are in interested in buying or selling, which website should you use for your research, HouseCallRealty, Realtor.com, Zillow, Redfin, Trulia etc…?

You probably have many questions. Which one lists the most homes for sale? Which are the most accurate? How up to date are they? When you click on a house and an agent is shown to contact - are they the actual listing agent? Who do they really cater to? Will you get spammed? And the most important question, WHICH ONE SHOULD YOU USE?

What’s the Real Purpose of a Home Inspection?

Why do we have home inspections in a real estate transaction? Inspections are meant to point out any defects in the home that could adversely affect you as the homeowner in the future. The inspection will examine a myriad of things from the foundation all the way up to the roof and everything in between. The buyer has the right to do any and all inspections they wish. What might they find? For the full breakdown, watch my latest video.
