Buyer Makes Offer, Now What? Some of us have not been thru a full real estate cycle (growth expansion, depression, recovery) and how we handle offers from buyers will determine our success in the sale. After receiving an offer on a Del Mar townhome yesterday and reviewing I made notes about pros and cons, notes to myself to ask the seller and notes to ask the buyer agent.  A meeting of the minds and expectations from all parties involved will make the deal go smoother and increase the percentages of a closing.  Notes and questions to the buyer agent, do you have other offers out at the moment? Do you have proof of funds (cash deal)?  You have a 30 day closing, you understand the property is tenant occupied?  I also ask about the services the buyer agent has put into the contract.  How l...

Approaching trains begin blasting their horns one-quarter of a mile from the crossing even in the wee hours of the morning. Though the pole mounted horns are just about as loud as those mounted on trains officials said they keep the noise more tightly focused ...
