First a Tea Party, Now a Coffee Party!  I recently read a great post on this subject by Joseph Lazzaro.  Here is his post in its entirety.  "You knew it had to happen, eventually.  In response to the Tea Party, a largely conservative/libertarian political action faction that advocates free markets, and small government (except defense spending), a liberal/populist Coffee Party political action faction has formed. The Coffee Party's underlying principle is that government is "not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges we face as Americans."  The first National Coffee Party Day was held last Saturday, March 13. Although the two have diametrically opposed views of governme...

Why Unrepresented Sellers Don't Sell 1.  No exposure.  A sign in the Yard, and an Ad on Craigs' List is not going to attract the buyers you're looking for. 2.  If I'm unrepresented too... I want a Screamin' deal.  If you're saving money, I want some savings too.  In this market the sellers are competing with Bank Owned Properties. 3.  I know your home is the "BOM", but it's not worth 5-30% more than the other comparable homes in the neighborhood.  Again, those buyers want a screamin' deal.  Oh yeah... don't forget the appraiser.  They are going to use the comparables to value your home, and if it doesn't come in, the buyer can't buy the home without coming in with even more money. Let an experienced agent market your home.  Call me to sell your home with as little hassle as possible. Ge...

 From U.S. News, picture is a photo just outside Medford Oregon(Southern Oregon)   "10 Cities For Real Estate Steals." 3. Medford, Ore.: The national housing bust has hit the outdoor wonderland of Medford, Ore., with a one-two punch. Because its timber industry is crucial to the local economy--wood-processing jobs represent at least a quarter of all manufacturing positions--the collapse of the new-home building market triggered higher unemployment in the area. Meanwhile, after moving significantly higher during the first half of the previous decade, home prices have dropped more than 23 percent in recent years. As a result, Medford's already affordable housing market has become even more so. Its price-to-income ratio stood at just 1.01 through the third quarter of 2009, well below its ...

I am absolutely blown away by how tenants trash homes, this is a home I own and this is all the garbage they left plus all the stuff in the garage, on the side of the house, and in the driveway.  There was holes in the walls, doors, and look at this pic a ton of the dry wall was taken off.  The house was sooooo dirty it was nuts, they simply vanished in the night.  This a home in East Medford in Southern Oregon.  I now how tenents in there who pay on time and things are fabulous. This cost me thousands of dollars not to mention the lost rent, new carpet, dry wall, paint, yard care, etc.  Sometimes owning rentals is brutal. Be very selective who you let into your rental homes I was and it still bit me.   Clason Whitney Principal Broker Coldwell Banker Pro West Real Estate in Medford Oregon

Medford Oregon's Birthday - 125 Years Old.  Medford Oregon offically celebrated its 125th Birthday on February 24, 2010.  Medford Oregon became incorporated as a City on February 24, 1885.  Since that time, this sleepy little town with original dirt roads became the largest city in Southern Oregon.  Since it's origin, Medford Oregon was primarily dependent on timber and agriculture for sustainability.  Now, Medford Oregon is a thriving regional trade center with a growing residential population, expanding medical facilities, increasing tourism and abundant recreational opportunities. Happy 125th Birthday Medford Oregon!

This is another great app I have started to use on my iphone, this like realtor.com app will show homes for sale in your area however only if they are uploaded to zillow so it is not as good in terms of finding a home for sale.  I use this as a listing tool to see what they think the value is, plus I pull up the county stats, and last do my CMA, the combination of the three I can hammer down a price just right.  It allows you to type in an address and get all this information, it shows a street view, hybrid view, and list view.  The hybrid view is an aerial of the neighborhood and it will show a blue dot which represents your exact location. With the hybrid view it shows the price ranges of the streets as well. Another good real-estate app to use for references on the go.   Clason Whitn...

While living anywhere in Southern Oregon is beautiful in my eyes rural living is exceptional.  However some folks move out to get out of town only to find out they knew nothing about rural living.  They say we don't have to pay for water anymore, no sewer payments, etc.  They don't understand that you have to maintain those items and you can have problems with them so there will always be costs associated with a well and septic. There could be minerals or pollutants in the water, may have to haul garbage, not enough time to mow fields, someone drilled a well close by and now you don't have any, deer could be an issue with your garden, the orchard just sprayed for bugs and it stinks, etc.  There are so many things to take into account when living outside city limits which is amazing but...

Mail Tribune/Jaimie Lusch   Medford Oregon Sports Park is such an amazing place we are so lucky to have this here in Southern Oregon.  This U.S. Cellular Community park brings in top notch talent from all over the country to play on the fields. There are soccer fields, baseball fields, walking trails, and much more. The Medford Oregon Sports Park generated millions of dollars in revenue for local businesses and preserved about 80 jobs as well.  Medford Oregons climate is so nice that these fields are used all year long, I have not seen it snow here once this year but I heard it did when I was on vacation.  It didn't stick though. Medfords Sports Park/U.S. Cellular Community Park is looking at building 6 more fields but a little something is standing in the way, only 6 million dollars ne...
