THAT'S IT...   I CANNOT BE WITHOUT MY ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE SOFTWARE !!  This tool has made the biggest leap forward in my business.  Background:  We live and work in Lake Tahoe.  Most of the sellers and buyers live elsewhere.  As the years have come and gone it became easier to do business.  First we hand wrote the one page contract, and three or four other disclosures then faxed them from the office to the parties.  Most of us did not have a fax machine at home and besides, they where about as big as a desk. The pages came back too light, too dark, smeared, with strips down the full page, blurred.  On and on this went.  Every year they improved the quality.  Units got smaller and the prices came down.  Finally there were enough of the old big things that we could buy used ones pretty c...

Real Estate Outlook: Vacation Sales Surge According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2012 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey, there was a surge in sales of both investment and vacation homes in 2011. NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said investors with cash took advantage of market conditions in 2011. “During the past year investors have been swooping into the market to take advantage of bargain home prices,” he said. “Rising rental income easily beat cash sitting in banks as an added inducement. In addition, 41 percent of investment buyers purchased more than one property.” Yun said the shift in investment buyer patterns in 2011 shows the market, for the large part, is able to absorb foreclosures hitting the market. Increased investor purchases are partly responsible fo...

Incline Village is a lovely place to live. It’s usually colder than the nearby Reno area where I usually work. The cost of living is also more. With the economy today people are looking to save money. People are also becoming more environmentally conscious. This is where the Energy Audit usually comes into play. I’m surprised that I don’t get called to the area more often. I recently performed an Energy Audit on a home in Incline Village and like many homes that are older than 12-15 years there was allot of room for energy improvements. This house was well maintained and had some remodeling in the past. The remodeling missed a large portion of the house that needed energy upgrades. For the last 30 years the missing and compressed insulation in the attic, leaky crawl space, poorly instal...

Homeowners Go Big on Glass Walls Forget about a room with a view. Today, homeowners want views from every room. As large expanses of glass have become architecturally acceptable for modern and traditional homes, new technology is making living in a fishbowl more practical—albeit sometimes challenging. Anita and Bob Dethlefs wanted their new Portland, Ore. home they were building to really let the sunshine in. So, the couple installed 2,700 square feet of Marvin windows—about $300,000 worth—on nearly every wall of the property. And then they put up 12 security cameras. Their 13,000-square-foot, $5 million Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home even has a glass front door, letting visitors on the front stoop see through the family’s living room out to Mount Hood. Homes That Let the Sun Shine In...
