The Crazy/Loco Real Estate Market Things are crazy, crazy! If you would have told me a year ago that we would be seeing the "bottoming" of the real estate market in our little town of Redding, CA I would have said you're crazy, "muy loco"...but folks, I'm here to tell you we are turning the corner! Remember those days when you'd put up a for sale sign and the phone would ring (a lot) and soon after you'd have multiple offers on the table? Well, that's exactly what's happening today in Redding's Housing Market. Busy buyers out looking in the late dark hours, heavily visited open houses and agents bumping into each other showing the same houses. We haven't seen days like these for the past six years, it's about time!   Supply & Demand (and my guacamole salsa) Remember in school when the t...

I have a funny story to tell you...and this is the best part of being ME. I may be prejudice about the Art of being ME but I find the part I like best about ME is when I get the "chuckles". Chuckles are those things that happen to you that any time you think of them, they make you laugh. I have had a call into my client on a commercial building up in Mount Shasta. We have a perspective buyer and I put in a call to him to get in touch with me. He got hold of me yesterday and he said "WOW Jeanean that music you have on your phone is really something!" This is one of the little things in life that is fun for me. I have "CallerTunes" on my phone for clients to listen to rather than the sound of a phone ringing. I enjoy changing the tunes and customizing my client's experience. It is just on...

A Positive Attitude is Important When Buying a Home - Trusting Your Realtor--The perception of the real estate market and Realtors is something that catches me by surprise at times. As a service provider (Realtor) in the Real Estate Industry, you have that opportunity to observe how people view the process of buying real estate and how they view Realtors. I am careful about who I work with. One of the reasons that I love the Blogoshere is that it is very suitable to people who like technology and transparency. The combination of the two make for me a valuable service that I provide. It is the opportunity to learn about the trending real estate market and the opportunities that are inherent in this current market.

Redding CA Short Sale Agent - Bank of America Tightens Up Their Short Sale Approvals--I have recently gotten three short sale approvals from Bank of America. The short sales varied on the time tables for getting approval. We got approval on one in 30 days; one in 60 days and one in 120 days. Getting approval depends on many things. We seem to see those owners who have remained currently on their mortgage and negotiated with the bank to do a short sale getting their approvals faster. It is important to be in touch with your lender and to communicate. Your recovery is directly associated with taking responsible action in cooperation with the bank. That net effect will be a less severe hit to your credit and your ability to recover your financial stability.   I currently have clients that ...

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and it is now time to prepare and to buy those sweet little things for your Honey, your friends and your children. I hope children still give Valentines on Valentine's Day. I can remember getting so excited to make out all my valentines and to say just the right thing to just the right people....boys mostly....but girfriends too. I'll be trying to think of some wonderful thing to do for David and I am sure that it will involve chocolate (I can partake as well....no gluten in chocolate....gotta love that). Ginger will get a red toy that she will gut within minutes but you have to know that is her fav part and it is a friend for life even without guts. So as a reminder of the day that is coming, I have prepared a little ditty from me to you....wis...

The Pool of Realtors is Getting Smaller - Can You Survive - The Service Wheel of Many Spokes--We recently had an opportunity to become aware of the number of Realtors here in our local area that made their annual dues and are still actively doing real estate. The number has gone from somewhere around 1500 Realtors down to around 475. That is a reduction of 69% of the Realtor base. Given, some have come and gone and we do have new agents but the numbers are sobering for sure. If we examined how these 31% have survived, we don't find anything that surprises. In my local area, it would not be Social Media that is the success factor. I do see other Realtors on Facebook and Twitter. I do see Realtors with good websites that get good SEO and compete with me for the online market. You do have ...

I have a good friend in life and in Business. We have both been working hard and would like to go and play. No play for us for a while. We have much to do....helping some sweet First Time Home Buyers that are on fire with determination. It is needed in this very agressive market right now. So we are on the phone a lot and running around to see each and every house that might do....we will be successful. Lots of phone calls. This might be my fav part of real estate. I created a full blown Webinar today for our HUD trainings. We are about to send out our monthly email blast for the training that will now include a webinar version...Yeah! David is still parsing the email for the latest updated email list. Maybe tomorrow we can do the email blast. We now have 2 or our 3 short sales approved...
