In an effort to better serve my sellers I offer an incentive for agents to provide me with feedback after they show a listing of mine. Here's how it works.On every listing of mine I promote in the agent remarks on the Omaha MLS that they could win a $20 gift card just by providing feedback. When an agent schedules a showing my assistant enters them into HomeFeedback. After the showing HomeFeedback automatically emails the agent a questionnaire. The questionnaire asks if the buyer was interested in the property, what they thought of the condition and price, what they would change, and, for a chance to win a $20 gift card to a local restaurant, what the agent thinks it will sell for. The agent that closest guesses the final sales price wins.At the end of each month I call the agents that ...

Below is a summary of the real estate market in Omaha for the month of March, 2008.Total Number For Sale 5644Total Number of Accepted Offers839Total Number of Closed Sales703  % of sellers that accepted an offer14.87%Absorption rate in months6.73These numbers encompass all residential listings in the Omaha Area Board of Realtors Great Plains Multiple Listing Service.Compared to February (Omaha Real Estate Market - February, 2008) the total number of listings is down which is uncharacteristic for this time of year. My guess is that a lot of sellers that were unrealistic about what their homes were worth have taken them off of the market.The number of accepted offers is up. Could this be a sign that the market is turning around? Unlikely. The national economic picture is bleak making the ...

Home Staging got this Millard Home Sold On 4/3/08 the property I had listed at 16106 Edna St. in Millard Park sold. I sold the home in 45 days; this was after the seller had it listed with three previous agents for a total of two and a half years. Comprehensive marketing and outstanding service are what made the difference. Home staging is just one of the services that I provided that contributed to the sale. In fact I remember the seller telling me after the home staging that his daughter said that it looked like an entirely different house. I want to thank Lisa Ritter for her part in the sale. She represented the buyer and stayed on top of the details. Lisa is always a pleasure to work with.  Thank you, Lisa Ritter. Trumm Team - Omaha, NE Your Home Sold within 120 Days or I will Buy It!

One of the more common items overlooked when selling a home is painting.  Painting can make a huge difference when selling a home.  For the most part, painting is a very inexpensive investment that can have a tremendous return.When 83% of the buyers begin their search online, painting can make a difference whether or not a home gets shown or whether the buyer "clicks through" the property.  If your home has very bold colors - a neutral paint can make the home more appealing to more buyers.  Thus leading to more showings.   Most people lead very busy and hectic lives and simply do not have the time available to paint a home after purchase.  Most listing agents assemble a "team" of professionals to assist sellers when putting a home on the market.  This team often consists of a profession...

Today, I had the opportunity to celebrate April Fools Day with "staging" appointment with my good friend Tori Lynn Ross of Ross Designs.  Tori is a member of my team and as part of my marketing plan, I have all my listings professionally staged by Tori.  To set this up, I had the help of one of my past clients who has a son who has a very unique taste in decor.  I have sold several properties for June and Mike over the past couple of years.  I have also been referred to several of June's friends and family.  June and Mike are one of my favorite clients and they have a real sense of humor.  One of the properties I sold was a rental home that was occupied by one of their children.  When I first met her at that property, June warned me that, "Dave, don't be shocked when you see this proper...

It used to be that Realtors were the gatekeepers to information on homes that were for sale. Each agent carried a binder with the current listings in it. If a buyer wanted information on a house they had to go through an agent. Fast forward to the 21st century. Now everything is available through the Internet. Buyer's have access to all of the same information that agents once held dear. Agent's access to information is no longer of value. Today agents must be knowledgeable. Being knowledgeable is much more than just having information. It is having information, knowing how it relates to other information, and being able to put it to use. Too many agents are still relying on having information. In the spirit of this new era of information freedom, I invite buyers to search the Omaha Are...

I want to thank Brian Wilson and David Gray at CBSHome. Today the sale of my listing at 4322 N. 172 Cir. in the Quail Run subdivision of northwest Omaha closed. It sold in only thirty days. Brian represented the buyer and David covered for him while he was out of town. Selling a home takes not just comprehensive marketing and outstanding service but also a capable agent on the other side of the transaction. Brian and David a great job. I look forward to doing business with them again.Trumm Team - Alliance Real Estate, Omaha, NE Your Home Sold within 120 Days or I will Buy It!

After having their home on the market for two years, the Karen Crawford and Dennis Kelly decided to hold a raffle and give away their house. Tickets costs $100 a piece. In 78 days they sold 6,289 tickets. They ended up making $225,000 more than they had planned and donated the excess to charity. This story appeared on the Early Show on CBS, for more details visit Early Show Real Estate Article. This is just an example of how creative marketing is needed in this tough market. My own creative technique to sell homes is my Guaranteed Sale Program in which I guarantee your home will be sold in 120 days or I will buy it myself.

A home warranty covers a property's heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical system, and appliances. What home warranties do not cover are structural issues (such as settling of the foundation), damage (hail, fire, and flood damage), and pre-existing conditions (if the furnace did not work before you bought the home warranty, then it is not going to be covered).Typically home warranties are one year in length. In Omaha, NE it is standard for the buyer of a house to indicate if they want a home warranty or not. And if so, whether they are asking the seller to pay for it.Home warranties can either be evaluated or non-evaluated. "Evaluated" means that a technician examines the property to determine if there are any items that the warranty would not cover or any items that are in need of repa...

I am proud to announce that Alliance Real Estate is leading the way by being the FIRST company in Omaha to introduce a VIRTUAL FLYER for buyers via PDA/Smartphone!  This system employs a text message call capture system with an attached virtual flyer!  Smartphones are the future and are outselling desktop computers 4 to 1.  This technology will enable a potential buyer to look at multiple photos and view pertinent home information within the comfort of their car instantaneously.  The buyers simply sends a text message and they receive a information back in the form of a text message.  If the buyer has a smartphone, then a link is attached with a virtual flyer with multiple interior photos.  The system then sends a text message to the listing agent with the buyer's phone number.  Try it ...

The smartest person in the transaction is the BUYER.  Why?  Most buyers by the time of making an offer have become experts in pricing homes currently active in the market.  They have spent hours searching on-line, searched days sometimes weeks looking at homes in person and sometimes they have searched different areas of town.  They know when a home is a good value and when it is not.  Buyers are looking at your current competition.The buyers are NOT looking at homes that have SOLD.  They do not tour your neighbor's house that sold a year ago.  That is ancient history.  Markets change so do prices.  They are also having their agent do an address history.  So they also know that you tried to sell your home 6 months ago and then you took it off the market.  They are also having their Real...

Recently a number of Realtors from various brokerages in Omaha decided to join together and open a Keller Williams franchise. Many people have asked "Why open another brokerage in Omaha?" I, on the other hand, think it's great. With increased competition, everyone wins. The consumer has more choices and agents are forced to do their best.Welcome to Omaha.Trumm Team - Alliance Real Estate, Omaha, NE Your Home Sold within 120 Days or I will Buy It!

The Omaha building code has been updated to specify that gas lines coming into a house need to be grounded. As a result this is showing up on home inspections. I have had two inspections this last week and on both houses it was noted that the gas line needs grounding. Luckily this is an inexpensive item to take care of. Both of my clients were able to have the work done, by a licensed electrician of course, for less than $150. Trumm Team - Alliance Real Estate, Omaha, NE Your Home Sold within 120 Days or I will Buy It!

What Will You Give Me?  One of the 1st questions an agent will ask a Broker if they are asked to join them is what will you give me?  Thats' a fair question, but the wrong approach to success.  One of the best business books of all time offered the best advice I've ever read "You Can Give a Man a Fish, and He'll Eat For a Day" or "You Can Teach a Man To Fish and He'll Eat For A Lifetime". Don & Valerie and The Producers joined RE/MAX in 2006 and The Producers have become the fastest growing RE/MAX office in the Omaha Area. We believe our growth is due to our understanding of the needs of real estate agents, since Don has been a successful agent for over 32 yrs.  Now Don is taking his experience in sales and marketing and combining it with the power of RE/MAX and sharing with their agent...
