All Real Estate Flippers Are Not Equal

Believe Me: All real estate flippers are NOT equal. There’s a LOT of so-called expert real estate flippers out there who watch some get rich quick show like how to become a millionaire or Flip This House. After a few episodes, they are ready to take over the world. Like most well run businesses, the people who do well are those who have a business plan, pay attention to detail and […]

REALTORS Should Own Their Own Content

REALTORS should own their own content… If I’ve said that once over the years, I’ve said it a thousand times. In my opinion, it is best for agents to “Own their own content.” Of course, not everyone agrees with that statement and that’s ok. Heck, I’ll freely admit that it does not apply to all REALTORS. To clarify, I’m not talking about the stuff in your home, I am talking […]

Details Do Matter

In a residential purchase contract, the details do matter… Sometimes, I am surprised by how many agents don’t pay attention to how a purchase contract works or how seemingly small details can raise questions. For example: Page 1 of our residential resale real estate purchase contract has a specific section for filling out the “Full Purchase Price” of the home and how it will be paid. For example, line 10 […]

I Love You, Dad

For the past 45 years my family and I have celebrated Father’s Day. Never once was it just another day. You see, I’m one of the lucky ones. Lucky to have a father that was always there. A father that loved me. A father that taught me right from wrong. A father that loved his wife, his kids and his family more than some would think is fair.  On May […]

More Foreclosures – More Problems?

As more and more foreclosure listings come on to the market, I see more and more lenders/Realtors write in the listing that the SPDS (Seller’s Property Disclosure Statement) and CLUE Report or Claims History will not be provided.In my opinion, there is no reason for a bank, other than wanting to “play dumb,” to say they “can’t” provide this information. While it may be obvious that they have never occupied […]
