The Power Of YOU

Nowadays, with the internet and email being such a large part of our business and life, written communication is more important than ever. Whenever I am writing an email or letter, or any other type of document I always think back to my Business Communications class that I took in college. I hated the class at the time, but looking back many years later, I now think that it was the best and most useful class that I took.

The professor always stressed the importance of writing from the “you” point of view—meaning the reader’s point of view, not your own. Whenever I would write something along these lines: “I can do this…” or ” I am …” or anything that started with “I”, my professor would always give me back my paper with a big “So What!” written all over it. In other words the other person doesn’t care about you—they want to know how they will benefit.

To put this in a real estate perspective, so often we see ads from Realtors that say “I’m number 1” or “I sold 300 homes last year.”

So What! What are you going to do to get my house sold? Continue reading this post

Due to popular demand of the top 5 “sealed deals” blog, we’re posting the next top 5 home buying cities!

These are markets that have been hot pretty consistently this year, even if the market is being recorded as slow on a national level.

We can all understand that more money for real estate agents and brokers also mean tougher competition.

OK, well, here are the next top five cities. Post a comment if you are an agent in one of these markets and let us what you are experiencing! Continue reading this post

Now is the best time to buy a house in several years

 

Yes – contrary to what the media is saying, now is a great time to buy a house.

People who tried to buy a home in the last couple of years often found it to be very difficult. There frequently were multiple buyers interested in the same property forcing buyers to pay over full price.

Also, homebuyers had little leverage to negotiate repairs after a home inspection because if one homebuyer didn’t want to accept the home as is, there would be several others who gladly would.

Well, now the pendulum has swung and the homebuyers have the power.

Prices have come down and buyers can still negotiate even lower prices. Also, sellers have to meet buyers repairs demands or risk losing the buyer and having the home sit on the market a long time until another buyer comes along.

Additionally, interest rates have fallen a bit, which helps make homes even more affordable. Continue reading this post
