What would motivate you to buy a home or sell and buy an up-grade or downsize?   A recently survey....found selling and buying trends within the “Baby Boomer” demographic and separated the baby boomers into younger Boomers (aged 47-55) and older Boomers (56-64). “With nearly 79 million Americans in this demographic, the insights gleaned from the survey can definitely help you understand this massive group of potential clients.” “Young Boomers want all the upgrades!”   Survey says!  According to “the survey” only 6 percent of agents report that those in the 56-64 age category are looking to get into a bigger home.   Interestingly, the younger boomers would love more space. In fact, 31 percent of those same agents said this younger group was in the move up buyer category. With the 47-55 a...

My key qualities are that I do my homework, I know my contracts, and I am a great negotiator.  Most money is saved/lost during the Buyer's contract offer.  A great Agent does NOT concede every little detail of the transaction to get the sale.  Each "detail" can cost anywhere between $50 to $6,000.  Are you ready to save some money?   I will do the following things:   1. If I am not available, I will return your phone calls quickly/promptly.       2. I will give you prices for comparable (comps) properties.  3. I will show you ONLY properties that fit what you are looking for.  4. I will let you know FIRST when any great deals come up.  5. I will negotiate the best possible deal on your behalf.   Search my site: www.SanGabrielValleyHomeSearch.com   Your REALTOR serving: Hacienda Heights...

This Blog officially makes my 100,000th point here on Active Rain. I wanted this Blog to be especially sentimental. I began thinking about the things that matter to me: family, friends, and my wife (of course). I am much too busy for bars and clubs...so...okay...I met my wife on the internet. It was a dating site for singles. I saw her picture and then I read her profile (this was my first impression of her). Like it or not, I had my first impression of her BEFORE I even met her or spoke to her. I know that it doesn't sound fair. However, in the internet realm...your profile is your first impression. Having said this, let me ask you a few important questions:      -Is your picture professional and current?      -Did you take the time to relly show WHO you are?      -Is the information o...

Historically, the time between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day have been the best time to buy a home. Many Buyers are too busy with cooking, entertaining and buying presents to be able to shop for homes. The amount of competetion is low and sellers know that there will not be many offers during this time. Maybe you can get a deal?

#5 Be Creative: The ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships or the like, and to create new meaningful ideas, forms, methods or interpretations. Look Outside the Box: Sometimes people do not have all of their options in front of them. A client of mine wanted a home that was a little nicer than she could afford. She thought that she would rather not buy than get a home that she "kind of liked." The Hot Prospect was "cooling" quickly. Make Suggestions: I suggested a few ideas: Bargain fixer homes, going to a lesser city or borrow money from a family member. She and her husband did not have the patience nor the money to do repairs on a "fixer." They were set on their city because the schools were top notch. All that was left was to borrow, but from who? Mom's ...
