Secrets Realtors Cannot Tell You!

I was having coffee with a client, and she was telling me she had a rough time with someone who did not tell the truth. And we got into this conversation about the different languages that are spoken in America. And she goes, well, it kind of boils down to, you know, English....and, lying, I added, lying is the second language in America. It is in style. This was not a political conversation we were having, we were talking about scammers out there online, people who lie about who they are. Both of our phones were ringing with spam calls at this time. We talked about having to be so guarded and people don't tell you the truth about things and they don't tell you the truth about who they are, and they make personas. It is hard to know what their real…

How to buy a house! ~ I wrote this in 2015 and in some ways it is very quaint. It makes me long for simpler times. 

Buying a home is a scary prospect and I typically find that buyers who are not scared are either not really going to buy a house or bought a home before or have a relative who was in the real estate business.  Why is it scary? There are lots of reasons…

Let's not count 2020. But, 2021 looked about like that. People started getting back into having family get togethers, and parties, and things started to be normal. So, we did see a dip last summer as more distractions of the season came about. Yet last January 1st the market took off like a shot. But are we really in a sellers market? What are sellers going to do this year. First I will summarize sellers and let you in on a secret about seller's markets and buyer's markets.

There once was the idea that agents should not be paid so much, and we often do get paid a lot of money. I will not go into what we pay to stay in business here. We are one of the last professions that has not been arbitraged and had our commission's turned into scale. Kind of like travel agents and other industries that have just been decimated by the online revolution. I started in 2004. There was no Zillow, and the internet was not really anything at that point. Because speeds were so slow, not a lot could be done with real estate with all the pictures and information. The internet speed increased and made real estate more viable online and Zillow came in.  2010 is when they came to all the real estate offices and they became more known to the…
