What Do Buyers Want?

I have been working with a buyer couple who don't have location restrictions.  They just want a single-family house they can afford in a decent neighborhood for a reasonable price.  Sounds like what most people want.  However, when it comes to actually choosing a house, an emotional connection is what they are waiting for.  [...]

Vacant Staging = Over-Asking

I recently worked with an investor couple on staging their vacant income property.  They knew they could get more money for the property if it was staged rather than left vacant.  However, we were surprised just how much over-list price an Offer came in at.  Yes, it is still a Seller's market, which means [...]

What to Expect in a Seller’s Market

Because housing inventory is so low, there are a lot of buyers who have lost out on their next home even with strong offers.  Even cash offers, over-asking, short closing dates, and an inspection for educational purposes are being rejected.  So what can a real estate agent do?

Your Credit Score

Are you pre-approved for a mortgage? Due to COVID-19, most sellers want a minimum number of people in their homes after being listed.  One of the ways to adhere to that request is for a prospective buyer to have a buyer's agent and be pre-approved for a mortgage.  This usually ensures  a prospective buyer [...]

From FSBO to Listed

Selling a house yourself is a daunting task.  Some people think in a Sellers' Market all they need to do is post it on the For Sale by Owner (FSBO) local site, put a "For Sale" sign in the yard, and wait for the phone calls.  This method may work from time-to-time depending upon [...]

Buying in a Sellers Market

[Note, I am not an attorney, nor am giving any legal advice here.] We have been in a Sellers' Market for a few years now.  What makes it a Sellers' Market?  There are more buyers than inventory.  One reason is because sellers are reluctant to put their property on the market during a pandemic.  [...]
