We have a buyer that is looking at an investment property and the details say "complete remodel" my buyers first question was... Is it really a FULL remodel or just lipstick on a pig? ( I just love this analogy) What a great question. As agents we have seen way to many bad remodel jobs that just ...

This practise is just so wrong ! After looking through MLS today at the new listings I came across another bank owned listing that was totally stripped out. No pool equipment, no kitchen cabinets, no appliances, no light fixtures, etc., etc. Now the listing agent has to offer it for cash buyers o...

Belinda and I have lived in South Reno for the past 14 years. Our children have all attended the great schools in this area and we are proud to call it home. We love the area for it's proximity to everything. North Lake Tahoe is just 25 minutes away, Mount Rose Ski Resort is right up the hill, th...

We just found the ONE. You know, the one perfect home for our buyer! The feeling never gets old for agents. You work really hard to figure out what your client is looking for, what they like, what they need and what their price range is. You do the searches, you set the showing appointments and y...

Every year Belinda and I can't wait for Spring. We love the sun, Belinda actually worships the sun ( not really but close) It is also a time when buyers just distinctively come out of the wood work(snow) to start looking at homes. I guess it's just a built in clock that let's us all know it's a g...

I have been asking this question for the last few months. It's driving me crazy ! We work in the # 1 state for foreclosures, they should be on every street, buyers should have 100's of options when looking to buy, but they don't !! I searched our local MLS today and here is what I found. * 226 Ac...

After reading another Internet article today about buyers needing 20% down and bank owned homes needing 6 months to close, I want to scream ! This is partly what the article said: "Buyers might be able to get great deals on foreclosed homes, but purchasers are often required to put at least 20 pe...

Every day, several times a day we log into MLS to see what is new on the market for our buyers. WOW- When 75% or so of the new listings are " Short Sales" it does make you stop and wonder, just how many more are there to come? I have been telling people for a long time that I don't think we are a...

After just meeting a buyer at a bank owned home to do our inspections, it really made me think about the MAJOR importance of home inspections. As agents we can always advise but can't force a buyer to do inspections. There are times when I wish it would be mandatory. I have shown many bank owned ...

So we take a short sale listing last year, do all the work to market it, find a buyer, get in contract and away we go. We upload the deal on the new equator system, our seller uploads all her information and now we wait. BPO is completed quickly, negotiator is assigned and we are feeling good tha...
