Below are a couple of headlines I read this morning (May 27, 2011): Next 2 years is prime time for real estate investors – Survey by Realtor.com operator of Move inc. Mortgage rates hit new lows for 2011 – Freddie Mac So Investors are getting into or in our local market already active because they see value. Investors are typically first to get in at the trough of a market. Rates are still low. I have been watching this and for many people, rates are moving up (credit scores, amounts, etc… are factors). What does this mean for our local market? Take a look at this chart of sales I posted recently. There are some very obvious things going on: We have a downward trend break of the Lower Highs in the Summer of 2009. We have a downward trend break of the Lower Lows in the Winter of 2010. W...

  Looking at number is amazing. It appears that 10% of agents in our MLS sell close to 50% of all transactions in our counties. Looking at the stats closer you would see that the majority of agent in our MLS have 1 to zero transactions for the previous 12 months. Many people choose an agent because they are a relative or a friend. The odds are not good that you are working with a top agent. As a BUYER or SELLER these statistics should mean something to you. Do you want an agent who is not truly "Active" in our market? I see agents advertise, both in print and on the web that they are a "Residential Expert" or "Specialist" or even a "Condo and Townhouse Expert" but when you look at the sales for these agents, they are really "stretching" the truth. As a BUYER or SELLER, ask your agent : ...

Why Charlottesville looks to REMAX for Homes year after year?     NOTICE: I joined RE/MAX in 2008 and it was a great decision! (read more) RE/MAX Assured Properties is independently owned and part of the RE/MAX franchise. They are highly respected and some of the finest agents in our area. This is one of the main reasons I joined RE/MAX, but there are others. RE/MAX is a company that is recognized worldwide and the Real Estate business is becoming a global business. This is a good move if you expect business from other areas of the country and the world. RE/MAX offers it's agents incredible training and opportunities. Any agent (worth their weight in salt) keeps up with education and trends. This is critical for any agent working with buyers and/or sellers. I am glad to be associated wi...
