We only have a week left this year but it can help set the tone for the upcoming year as well.  Stay at it!!! The phone is still ringing, people are still looking, some people even have more time off right now than at any other time of year.  Make an extra call today or tomorrow and maybe it will...

In some ways many of us are finding that we can't do the things for others that we could a few years ago and it has a tendency to weigh on us. The bad news is that it "is what it is" and this year we may feel we came up short. The good news is that even by having these feelings it means that you ...

We just had a great presentation from Diana Yates of Action Realty in Meford, Oregon on HUD Owned Homes and how to go about helping our buyers purchase them.

I have an owner that lives out of state and after taking the listing and tenants moving out there was a lot of love needed! Yard was overgrown and out of control both front and back. A few things broken inside, garage full of junk and the filthy carpets smelled of dog. There was minimal room to m...

Wake up your buyers!!  The alarm clock seems to have gone off for some of the sellers that have decided to try ad sell their homes before the end of the year and while rates are still down. I am seeing nice properties in various price ranges that are "Happy Sales" (not a short sale). Something se...

Well when I asked the question "Is it OK to let a buyer make offers on multiple short sales at the same time" there were answers on both sides.  There were "NO" opinions that stated if a buyer is making multiple offers and tying up properties it is not fair to the seller who could possibly have t...

Question... Is it ever ok to let a buyer have multiple offers out on short sales, considering the number of them that the bank doesn't approve as submitted? I know there are many views on this and we know that a buyer can wait for 6 months to get a NO answer and have to start over. Yes??  No??   ...

Shhhh... Don't tell anyone but I was only kidding. I have always been amazed by those that either truly think that people don't buy this time of year or that like to convince themselves of this (and their spouse) so that they can't take a month off.
