The condominium and Patio homes market heats up...

Eric Blackwell posted this 1 1,766 Views

Why are condominiums and patio homes remaining strong in today's real estate market? In my opinion, it goes back to the basics of supply and demand. While home sales are strong in Louisville, the inventory levels keep rising...meaning that there is an inevitable reckoning coming where the two must meet up again. So I started researching at our local board of REALTOR  for which segments of the market had the lowest inventory / sales ratios. Condominiums and patio homes in Louisville an...

Eric Blackwell posted this 1 1,481 Views

When I first moved here to Southern indiana from California, my wife told me two very important things about the area, #1--We would ALWAYS live in Indiana and #2--the area around Louisville that I had come to know as Kentuckiana was to be referred to as Indi-ucky...an obvious slap at my friends from Louisville. i have since heard so many things back and forth about the two that I thought I do a little comparison of my own: Fact #1--Taxes are lower in Southern Indiana. That's not an opinio...

The Heart of Washington’s Wine Country With more than 150 wineries within an hour’s drive, the Tri-Cities of Kennewick, Pasco and Richland are truly at the heart of the Columbia Valley which includes the Yakima Valley, Walla Walla Valley, Red Mountain, Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope appellations.

If you are thinking about buying a home in Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Juno Beach, North Palm Beach or anywhere throughout Palm Beach County, you have looked at many costs associated with new homeownership, including the property tax bill.  Florida legislators last week passed laws leading to sweeping changes in the amount of taxes that homeowners pay and in how the value of your home is determined for tax purposes. The first part of tax reform relates...

REALTOR Alphabet Soup

Wayne Long posted this 1 2,324 Views

Is a real estate designation worth anything to a Realtor or their clients?     Many just call it alphabet soup.     I for one believe that national designations are worth a lot.   Why?  Because the agent took the time to become better educated in his or her field.   GRI or CRS classes are tough, expensive, and time consuming.   An agent willing to go through the classes is an agent who is dedicated.&nbs...

I need to ask your ideas what I have to do with my clients and their listings when I am going to vacation. In my opinion, real estate does not have any vacation and my clients are always on the first place. In nowadays, we have enough tools to keep connection, to contact with the clients: phone, e-mail, and text messages, fax...etc. The main point is I will still working even tough I am out of country because of keeping my clients happy, my listing active and being on the market. On the othe...

Top 10 Reasons Why Your House Hasn’t Sold Yet

mkrotchie posted this 2 1,317 Views

10) Too cluttered - Nothing turns a buyer off more than walking into a potential new home and seeing it filled with stuff. If you really want to sell your home at least take the time and effort to put away, or better yet, dispose of some of your less useful belongings. That collection of McDonald’s plastic toys sitting on your computer desk might have been worth a chuckle when you bought them 3 years ago but c’mon.. get rid of them. Chuck it, stow it, or store it. 9) Too homey...
