DOES YOUR BROKER/REALTOR OWN REAL ESTATE?

Hi Susan,

I’m surprised more buyers don’t ask this question. It’s not just the experience we have gained going through the process, but feeling the stress just like our clients.

Cheers.

Government 2.0 - Obama's First Weekly Address!

So Harry, how do you really feel?

I’m open to any forum, but like to focus mostly on real estate.

I cannot say that I disagree with everything you said, but I think you would be better off sharing your thoughts on the above subject with our politicians.

Best,

Cashin Company Realtors: Selling Northern California's Finest Properties!

Thanks for the comment. Cashin Company was aquired by Coldwell Banker about 4 months ago.

The Brokers and agents were shocked even though we had heard the rumors. But I have kept an open mind and I’m really impressed with the marketing and support I have gotten from Coldwell Banker so far.

Sincerely,

Dave

What is a home warranty? What is usually covered?

Ver true, Allen. The reason most sellers would prefer to give you a credit instead of fixing the problem is because of liability.

It’s best to sell the home AS-IS and have the buyer choose who they would like to fix the problem.

They may have a relationship with a contractor they trust, or be able to shop the price and get a better deal.

Cheers.

What is a "Pocket Listing"?

Hi Jacque,

It’s negotiable. You can pretty much do as you wish. Most agents will only take a minimum 90 listing.

Even if I were to take a 30 listing, I would need another 30 days to allow for the home to close escrow, which is normally 30 days.

Thanks for your question, feel free to write or call anytime.

Should I Buy A Home Warranty When I Purchase A Home?

Chris, It’s our job as agents to educate our buyers and sellers. We do this every day, they don’t.

SHORT SALES - PART 1

I always tell people the difference between a good agent and a great agent is their knowledge and their ability to use that knowledge to their advantage.

Thanks Jeff.

IS NOW A GOOD TIME TO BUY A PROPERTY? IT DEPENDS

Thanks for your comment Michael. I agree, it’s a win-win, and getting a seller credit is always nice.

Should We Try To Purchase A Home During The Holidays or Wait?

When you close is not relevant, the whole point was if you should be looking for a home during the holidays and could find a good buy.

Thanks for the spam!

Parkside Neighborhood Information!

Hi John, one big difference is that Parkside is in the Aragon School District where the other two are not.

It also seems like the homes are in a little better shape. You might also want to keep you eyes open to the Village.

Thank you and have a Happy Holiday.

By the way, if you are not working with another agent, I will be more than happy to set you up on an email alert so you can follow the market. Do yourself a favor and get pre-approved for a loan first if you haven’t already,

Follow-Up To Yesterday's Video

I agree, it was an ease to both my mind and the sellers that we agreed on a price that has comparables to back up the price we chose.

To double check that price we will also be having a “rev” on the property.

2009 Tax Benefits for Home Buyers!

That’s one way of looking at it, but I think it’s a little different because the ones who are getting a tax deductions are actually investing their own money, and also creating jobs for others. I’m all for helping out when people are down, but at what point to we say as a whole that enough is enough. Cheers, Tap!

The Encouraging News Continues!

Amen Sheila. There’s enough negativity going around that it’s nice to hear something positive and the world is not going to end. Dave
