Every winter in the Reno area we wait for spring & sunshine to come. Some buyers don't want to track through the snow to see homes. I wish they would though ! They are really missing out on the great bank owned buys right now. With the tax credit getting close to expiring and rates certain to ris...

When we started in real estate over 5 years ago we knew we wanted a web site set up that would allow buyers to do their own searches without signing in. The research has been done a number of times and they have found over and over again that buyers, first and foremost want to do their own search...

Working with a buyer this week on the purchase of a bank owned home really brought home the point that working with an agents preferred lender is a REALLY good thing ! Our buyer had a pre-qual in hand from XYZlender before we started looking at homes. We found the perfect home, wrote an offer, go...

To see buyers purchasing homes and having the payment match what they are paying for rent right now, it doesn't get much better. To see investors buying property that will actually pencil out is ...

The new HAFA ( Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program) starts April 5th 2010. Will it work? We are hopeful, but not sure ! We work on many short sale listings and everything we read about HAFA would be a real good thing if the lenders really follow through. Details like these are really...

We are hearing of buyers wanting to wait until the very end of April to find that perfect home and get in just under the wire for the tax credit. My ongoing concern is that those buyers that wait until right before the contract deadline to find the home may be in trouble, WHY ?? What if they just...

My 300 calls and e-mails paid off today ! After my 6:00 a.m. call this morning to the closing negotiator she finally signed the HUD off and sent it back to escrow to close today. How can this last step in the short sale process take a week to get done? I will never know. But I am SO happy to be d...

I woke up this morning with a question running through my small brain. Do I need to love real estate? I have been in sales for over 25 years with the last 5+ in real estate. As we all know the last 2 years have been VERY fun in the business ! Even when the business is more challenging then ever a...
