Have you ever had those weeks when you just want it to end? As agents we have our phones on 7 days a week ( yeah I know we try to take 1 or 2 days off a week but we still check voice mail & e-mail right !!) and our blackberry's are on just to look at e-mail even on those days off just to make sur...

After receiving an e-mail today from a buyer, I just had to laugh. Here is part of what he said. "Keep in mind that I am selling all of my tools.  I don't want to see another screw driver, hammer, ladder, etc." So he's telling me he doesn't want a fixer right??? I am not the sharpest tool in the ...

WOW, the deals we are seeing everyday in our Reno market are just down right CRAZY. Our buyer just got their offer accepted today for the high $200,000's. The home sold in 2006 for over $560,000 and it's just an amazing house. With pricing this low and low rates, buyers really really need to look...

We represent many buyers on the purchase of bank owned homes in our area. With many buyers being first time home buyers and using FHA for their financing we almost always ask for closing cost help for the buyers. We never know if all the credit can be used up until a few days before closing when ...
