Advice for Buyers and Sellers -
It's Time for an Attitude Adjustment...
Indicators are heading towards a flattening of the market. While prices vary (in some areas they seem stable, in other areas they are declining, and in a few areas are still even seeing some appreciation) the red flag is the 17.8% drop in sales overall.
Sellers need to think current market condition, not past. Now more than ever, if you decide to sell you need to hire an agent that has solid experience in pricing. We are not in a rising market - translation: Don't price to test the market, you'll lose. Price to seek.Overpriced homes just sit on the market. The county's inventory of available $1 million plus homes has doubled from a year ago. Buyers are more cautious.
Homes need to be in good condition. Think staging, have a plan. Remember when buyers submit an offer they are accepting the risk of an 'unknown market.' So yes, it is time to sell but only if you are realistic.
Buyers are feeling uncertain and are not 'happy campers.' At the same time, they see this kind of market as their opportunity to make offers for less than list price. While it is not officially a buyer's market, it is heading that direction. Buyers more than ever need an experienced agent to make sure they do not over pay for a property. With jumbo, 30 year fixed rate loans at 6.875% and 1 point is it time to buy - the answer is yes!
In this market there are deals out there!
Have you been frustrated in trying to find information on
homes for sale? You're not alone. This is the largest complaint that
homebuyers have. Typically, the Realtors control the information on homes
for sale. They make this information secretive, only giving you enough of
the details to gain your interest and then forcing you to have to call
them for important information, such as the price, the address, etc. Who
started that silly system anyway?
The automated e-mail Home Search system on this website has been designed
to offer you the information on homes for sale that you want and furnish
it to you easily and without the common hassles and high pressure. You
want to obtain the information easily, and then make a decision as to
whether you want further information on this home or wish to view it.
After all, you know exactly what you're looking for. The automated e-mail
home search system provides you the homes information and then all that
you have to do is to e-mail me with the homes you would like to see and
when you would like to see them. It's just that easy.

The Best chance for selling your property is within
the first seven weeks.Studies
show that the longer a property stays on the market, the less the seller
It is very important to price your property at a
competitive market value at the signing of your listing contract.The market is so competitive that even over-pricing by a few
thousand dollars could mean that your house will not sell.Interestingly, your first offer is usually your best offer.Here are reasons for pricing your property at the market value
right from the very start in order to net you the most money in the
shortest amount of time.
An Overpriced Home:
· Minimizes offers
· Lowers agents response
· Limits qualified buyers
· Lowers showings
· Lowers prospects
· Limits financing
· Wastes advertising dollars
· Nets less for the seller
COMMUNICATION: THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL HOME PURCHASE.
During your home purchase process, communication is the name of the
game. Great communication between you and your agent is essential.
Knowing your needs and wants and understanding your lifestyle will
help your agent understand what kind of home will work best for you.
This is an important part of an agent's service to you. Typically,
when you are ready to purchase a home, your HomeBuyer Specialist will
sit down to discuss the type, size, style and location of the kind of
home you are interested in purchasing. After extensive research, we
will furnish you with all of the information on only the homes that
fit your needs. You will then have the freedom to drive by these homes
and decide which ones you have interest in enough to arrange a
showing. You can then contact Mark or Kimberly, who can arrange for a
private showing of only the homes you wish to visit.
For Example: Green Valley - A smaller community
of about 500 homes currently with limited growth, Green
Valley is aptly named. Majestic oak trees and manzanita
bushes grow abundantly in this small, fertile valley. Horses
are common on many larger parcels. Homes vary from 1920s
cottages from below $200,000 to new and newer customs priced
from the mid $300,000s to those on larger or multiple parcels
reaching $400,000 and higher.

EXPOSING YOUR HOME TO THE MARKET 24 HOURS A DAY,
7 DAYS A WEEK!!!!!!!!
Today’s highly competitive home market demands
the kind of exposure that only current technologies can provide.Last year 53 million people in the United States looked for homes
on the Internet. Many Real Estate Professional now know the importance
of exposing homes to prospective home buyers via the Internet.
These agents employhighly sophisticated, effective marketing systems that give your
home maximum market exposure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to home
buyers world wide.The old
methods of marketing, which incorporate doing a few open houses, a few
ads and wait for the phone to ring, just won’t make it happen today.Your Real Estate Professional needs to know and understand the
current technologies that most prospective home buyers today are using
to find their home.
Surveys show that investors typically do not choose real
estate for one of two reasons: 1- They do not understand its
true potential, 2- They feel that compared to stocks, bonds,
annuities, etc, real estate is just too much trouble and too
complex to become involved with. If I can solve one or both, you
can diversify and give your investment dollars some real impact.
Here is a simplified example of what real estate offers as an
investment: When you place $15,000 into most investments you
receive $15,000 worth of investment. When you place $15,000 into
real estate, however, you can receive $125,000 worth of
investment. If that piece of real estate appreciates at 10%, you
earned $12,500 in investment dollars as compared to $1,500 in
investment dollars for your other investment. QUITE a
DIFFERENCE! Of course there are many factors to consider, such
as the cost of owning and the cost of selling the real estate.
1. The offer is typically written by an agent who
represents the buyer’s best interests.
2. I can represent you, the home seller as your
exclusive sellers agent.
3. I will carefully go through the entire offer
with you and furnish you with expert guidance and counseling .I will help you put together a response that will give you the
highest possible price for your home and also make sure that you are
protected from liability.
4. I will skillfully negotiate the price and terms
of your offer.
Items To Pay Special Attention To:
a. The interest rate should be close to prevailing
b.What is the length of time for loan approval?
c.Who is paying for title insurance and escrow
fees? it should be 50/50 split.
d.Time frames for all inspections and the release
of inspection contingencies.
e.Are there limits of liability on all repair work?

YOU NEED TO HAVE THE BEST!!!!!
All real estate agents should find out what
today’s home buyers want and need, and make it easy for them to get.Surveys show that buyers want information and they want it
freely.That is why the
Internet is so successful in exposing homes for sale.Buyers are not looking to buy homes online, they just want to get
information about homes and information about buying homes.Agents that may have been very effective just a year or so ago
will find themselves at a loss if they are not providing what today's
home buyers want and need.
To be effective in the current Real Estate Market,
your agent needs to understand the current technology and consumer
market trends and employ the systems that consumers now look for.Lots of agent have a web presence, (You wouldn't even consider an
agent who didn't would you?) but HOW EFFECTIVE is that presence?Few agents today understand the home buyers new way of thinking
nor do they have the marketing systems in place that are available with
