Some listing presentations go better than others.  I happen to believe that preparation is key to success. Yesterday, I spent much of the afternoon assembling material for a presentation to a couple of sellers.  Both of the sellers are either current or former real estate licensees in another state, so I knew that I was going to have to get this one right the first time. I started by pulling up the "Comparative Market Analysis" template from our NorthstarMLS website.  The template isn't heavily branded, even when customized, but it's clean-looking and it's easy to make it suit your needs.  There's room for a property photo or company logo, agent information and personalized client info.   After generating the cover sheet, I add comparables generated off NorthstarMLS.  I use a "Customer ...

MAAR friends Linda Stoechicht (Director of International Programming & Broker Services) and Mark Allen (Chief Executive Officer at the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors) recently sent me congratulations on the recent article that appeared in Realtor Magazine which mentioned my work on the Wisconsin and NAR Equal Opportunity committees toward the proposed Amendment to Article Ten of the Realtor Code of Ethics.  I blogged about this in my Madeline Island Real Estate Blog a few weeks ago. Linda wrote, "This is so cool how instrumental you were with getting this issue moving in the right direction.  It is good to see that grassroots still has a place and influence in  monumental decisions and actions.  In case no one has said it....... Thank You, nice job!!!" I also received a very n...

Back in late October of 2009, I got a phone call from Regina Ludes, a staff writer with The Residential Specialist magazine.  Regina told me she was putting together an article on the different ways that some agents promote the CRS Designation to the public and to others in the real estate industry.  Regina requested an interview and a couple days later, we spent about forty-five minutes chatting over the phone. Regina's article appears in the newly-released January - February 2010 issue of the Residential Specialist magazine.  Please click on the photo below to read the full article. The article is entitled "Letter Perfect - CRSs Find Unique Ways to Promote the Designation to Clients and Agents".  Among the quotes from our interview that Regina included in her article was a comment I m...

There is a lot to be said about the value of buying a property "below market". You can save yourself anywhere from 5% to 40% on a purchase or more. Here are a few things to think about before you put your money down and write up an offer. Do you have time? - Reason being, it can take weeks, even months to get a foreclosure or short sale through the process to closing for a variety of reasons, but the biggest one being the entire industry is log jammed with properties, and few "reasonable" people handling them. In a recent conversation with a mortgage company REO specialist, they said that they are handling 2X to 4X the amount of files(properties) than the system and the staff are designed to handle. Are you handy? - I mean really handy? - Many foreclosure properties provide no warrantee...

Today I thought we could take a look at what real estate is doing out on Lake Minnetonka. Not that it is any big surprise, but things have slowed down a little in 2008 on the famous lake. High end buyers don't seem to be coming out of the woodwork anymore, either because they already bought a home in the last five years, or can no longer afford the luxury lifestyle. Anyway, the news isn't all that great. About the only positive number coming out of the area is that closed sales for the month of September were up 9%. The not-so-good "positive" numbers show that the number of days a home is on the market has gone up to 181, almost 9% higher from this time in 2007. The good news to buyers is that the average price of home on Lake Minnetonka has gone down 10.3%. It helps that many million d...

 My 400th blog is about the most beautiful lady in the World - by: Robert Swetz  I wanted this blog to be special because of the number and to try and make my wife Nu Nu a part of Active Rain. She always mentions to me that I am wasting my time with Active Rain and I try to explain to her that AR is different than other networks. So this blog is all about the most beautiful lady in the world.  Nu Nu was born in Myanmar (Burma) and it took her 5 years to just come and visit America. When she came to visit America in 2002 she stayed and worked in San Diego, California. It wasn't more than 6 months and she moved to Minnesota and worked in Minnetonka. We met out of the blue one day, she was working at a Sushi place in Minnetonka and we started dating.  It wasn't long before we got married ...
