Ouch-the backlash! I am befuddled by some of your comments (to my last blog post). Yes, it is good to get comments but part of being an independent contractor is just that--being able to make choices and some difficult decisions.   I have tracked a number of homes that have gone down, down, down in price. This one on Church was $112,000 when I first saw it. It was marketed by several brokers and went down to $85,000, less, less, $50-something and finally sold for $34,639. OMIGOD-the land or sewer or whatever is worth more than that!! I showed it several times to no avail. In November of 2005, there was a loan amount of $312,000 and it is assessed for over $200,000. Someone got an amazing bargain!!!   Fortunately, when some of these are REOs, the asset manager can offer bonuses and highe...

Wow, it wasn't easy but I canceled my listing of the little house that didn't sell in East Oakland.   Cute house--needed work, but great potential.   It is a sad state of affairs when price becomes irrelevant and some places won't sell no matter how low they are priced. Lowering the price of one acts as a downward spiral on the surrounding home prices.   No showings, no phone calls, nada. All someone would have had to do was buy, fix up with $20-30,000, rent out with cash flow and wait 3-5 years to triple their investment.   Of course, no one can predict the future, but I can be optimistic, right?

Wow, I am so bummed. For the first time, I am unable to sell a normal listing. This is neither a short sale nor an REO—well, it is a probate and according to the attorney, the court won’t allow more than a 6% commission. This means if I were to lower the price again to a mere $75,000—though not convinced that it would sell at this price—my net commission would be less than $700!!!   Since I am now dating my company’s broker, he told the owner and she told me to cancel the listing. The reward isn’t worth the risk to them? Or me?   I find all of this difficult to believe for two reasons. First, when I sold real estate in Oregon 10-12 years ago, I sold many condos and land in the $50-70,000 range. My biggest sale was considerably less than $300,000. Despite the “nickels and dimes”, I was a...

I was running comps today as I needed to reduce the price of my East Oakland listing. It has been on the market a few months with nary a peep from any of my colleagues. Interestingly enough, when I checked the Oakland crime statistics, this address had less crime than other recent sales and listings (of mine) in North Oakland, West Oakland and neighborhoods around 30th, Market and MLK.  Yet some guy delayed me at my Open House for an hour so he could come by to see it and he got scared off by a memorial down the street. According to a neighbor boy, some kid was in a car accident-NOT a gang-related incident (according to my "source").   People judge; it's sad. These nice young men hanging out at the corner even helped me put my signs away. Or maybe I am naïve? When I was young, we hung o...

Whereas it is a mixture of pride and ego that I have intermittently been considered "creative", I am flattered that the outlet that is active rain allows me not only to rant and ramble-but to be recognized for doing so--thank-you active rain!!! Which brings me to the real meat of my post: I am sad. I might be getting a new listing and I am ambivalent about it. Why? I am currently working on three listings in East Oakland-all three are a grand total of less than $800,000. I ran into a former colleague over the weekend. She told me that someone walked in to her new office and was plunking down $3 million for a condo. With transactions in the $200's and $300's, I couldn't even conceive how many it would take to achieve that lofty level. I recall a decade ago in Oregon when some agents woul...
