But not Texas hot, is what I would add. This week one of my tasks is to pump up an Open House I have scheduled for this weekend. I have my websites all set with the information. I have postcards made and two thirds of them are already handed out. Yes, you heard me correctly. I walked the farm neighborhood for the home I have for sale in hopes of finding that one family that is ready to move up to the nicer house. I am looking for the family that is doing well in this economy and feeling good about their prospects enough to move from a smaller house to a larger one. I am looking for the person who is ready for the nicest house of the block. My belief from much of what I have read about real estate is that that person lives in a house that is twenty to thirty percent smaller, and less exp...

Anyone out there looking for a home has seen lots of distressed property. There seems to be two markets, the distressed properties than need lots of work and the homes you can move in to and live with little or no changes. The economics of these purchases should be looked at because buying the least expensive house can cost you far more in the short run than purchasing a home that is move in ready with new systems, paint and fixes. Take for instance the Creek Crossing section of Mesquite Texas. In this neighborhood there are76 houses bought, sold, pending or withdrawn within the last 6 months. Almost a third of these were distressed properties that were purchased at below market rates. The houses had issues like no AC, bad roofs, ruined walls and rugs and other costly repairs. As with a...

Yesterday I listened to an agent explain all the reasons why he was not achieving at a level to sustain himself.  His reasons were well thought out and plausible.  He was able to back them up with statistics and examples.  He was convincing to himself and to many others.  He had been successful at one point and needed to have answers why he was not at this point.  It occurred to me that all the time he spent formulating reasons and ideas on why he was not able to do what he wanted; why he was in the position he is in was an utter waste of time, as were his excuses, Oh, explanations.  When you spend all your time justifying why you are not achieving at the level you want you are spending no time figuring out how to accomplish what you want.  I wanted to scream, ‘you are wasting my time ...

Let me share this week’s new distinction and go over what I took from my last Open House that worked.  You may remember I had 28 people come through my last open house in 2 hours.  Most of them spoke of the card that I had left at their door and called me by name.  I prepared an Open House Invitation and personally asked them to come on each card, in my own handwriting.  I have learned that when you write on a card the person is more likely to read just that portion.  I did the same with this new home and expanded my reach by another 100 farm homes.  The point I make when I meet people is that now you have the opportunity to pick thier neighbor.  I say this with a smile and everyone then begins to think who they would like to have as a neighbor, a friend, and a relative, someone that j...

Yesterday one of my listings was given a critical review by friends of the seller.  Not surprisingly these friends were able to find something they didn’t like.  That is the thing when you ask smart people a question, they will strain to give you an answer.  Well, maybe strain is too strong a word, a smart person can make decisions quickly and without effort, but they will give you an answer.  Sometimes the answer will be right on and sometimes not. I am not sure about this one so I made the change requested.  The comment was about the fact that my seller loves her home and has spent time, energy and money landscaping and gardening while she was the steward of this wonderful home.  She planted a number of beautiful trees in the yard which create shade and beauty.  A neighbor, as a comp...

IF you are looking in the Mesquite area for some good Mesquite houses for rent then you need to find a good  Mesquite realtor to help you.  They are free for you to use and can definately help you find a good deal for you in your family.  Many realtors are expert negotiators as well.  It is what they do for a living and most likely can save you a hundred bucks or so a month on rent.  Mesquites homes for rent can oftenly be found for about $800 - $2,000 a month.  These homes are commonly built in the 1970s with a good sized backyard.  When looking in mesquite you should always check the foundations of the home, as mesquite has very "sandy" dirt beneath the surface, thus making the area suspect to foundation cracks.  This could generate quite the headache for you as it could give you leak...
