The Myth of Floor Time  PART ONEWhy Floor Time Is Bad for The Client Ask any listing agent, "Who is the most qualified person to handle calls about your listing?" and the answer is always the same: "I am."  Ask a listing client the same question and you're likely to get the same answer - their agent.  Of course.Then why do most real estate companies continue the old school practice of "Floor Time," requiring agents to work as unpaid phone receptionists, having non-listing agents handle call-ins (sometimes for properties they've never even seen)?  Why perpetuate a business practice that is not in the best interest of the client? Because it's easy (albeit lacking in imagination.)  Floor time means never having to say "that agent's not here."  It used to be the case that if someone didn't...

Say you buy a $43.5 million, 6,000-square-foot oceanfront estate on 6.5 sandy acres in Sagaponack, (in my homeland of Eastern Long Island). What's the first thing you do? Well, if you're hedge fund billionaire David Tepper, you tear the thing down -- along with the guesthouse, swimming pool and tennis court -- to build an even bigger house.Tepper bought the home from ex-wife of former New Jersey governor Jon Corzine. In April, he got a permit for the demolition, and yesterday, the site was cleared.The new house will be about twice the size, with ocean views from every room, "a sunken tennis court, three-car garage, a widow's walk, second-floor decks including one with a Jacuzzi, and a covered porch," reports Hamptons Curbed. Back here at my adopted home at the Jersey Shore, the Rumson ...

by the KCM Crew on Oct. 5, 2010 "If you don't own a home, buy one. If you own one home, buy another one. And if you own two homes, buy a third and lend your relatives the money to buy one." - John Paulson 9/27/2010 WOW! That's a powerful statement. There is no question that John Paulson is a bull when it comes to residential real estate right now. Should we care what Mr. Paulson thinks? Should we listen to him? The answer to both questions is a resounding ‘YES'. Here are several reasons why. Who is John Paulson? Paulson is the person who made a fortune betting that the subprime mortgage mess would cause the the real estate market to collapse. He understands how the housing market works and knows when to buy and when to sell. What do others think of Paulson? According to Forbes John Pau...

The New York Post ran an article this weekend which got a lot of attention in Monmouth County as it was highlighting the higher end of the market, specifically in Rumson, NJ.  If you'd like to read the full article you can do so on the NY Post website.  Ultimately I don’t think this is a new story… basically they’re saying “prices are down and there’s a lot of inventory” but that’s basically been the story for about three years now.  All they’ve done is make it very specific to one part of the market and made it a bit more colorful by including some interesting quotes from locals and colorful descriptions (I’m not sure exactly how the atmosphere is “surreal” around here but I suppose it sounds good.)There is one significant inaccuracy in the story, that there are currently 100 homes for...

UPDATE: PHILADELPHIA DID NOT TAKE THE NEWS LIGHTLY THAT THEY WERE GOING TO LOSE THE REGATTA... AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'VE WON IT BACK.  SEE RELATED UPDATED POST. --------------------------------------------------------- The Dad Vail Regatta, the biggest U.S. collegiate crew event, announced Tuesday it is moving from Philadelphia to Rumson, N.J.  It is expected to bring thousands of athletes and visitors to the area. The headquarters will remain in Philadelphia but at least next year, the event will be held on the Navesink River, 90 miles from the Dad Vail's home of 56 years. According to organizers, the Dad Vail had been caught in a squeeze between rising costs in Philadelphia and reduced corporate sponsorship. Rumson guaranteed $250,000 in sponsorship support for the event.
