    What is a view worth?  This is a question I posed to an appraiser yesterday.  It is an argument I am going to have to make.  Is a view worth $5,000, $10,000 .  .  . Does it depend entirely on the individual affected?  I know back when I was doing BPOs, there was a blank I had to fill in for t...

  Neighborhood Parks and Trails in Gardner, Kansas.  One of the things that draw people to a specific community or neighborhood are the parks, playgrounds and trails available for public use, the care and upkeep the facilities receive and the relative safety of those areas.  As a resident of Gard...

Inspections and Appraisals - what is the difference?  A lot!  The words and the part of the process are totally different.  This is the #1 source of confusion that buyers, and not just first time buyers, have.  The Inspection: Comes before the appraisal Inspectors are hired and paid for by the bu...

"Sellers, I'm sorry.  Having your house on the market is gonna be a pain. I want to let you know some of the not so pleasant things you are going to possibly put up with when you have your home on the market."  Having strangers come through your home is not pleasant, convenient or fun. However, S...

Really, how inconsiderate can a showing agent be?  Yesterday, my client and I went out of our way to let a showing agent into one of my listings because the showing agent couldn't get her I-box key to work. When my client got home, there was melted snow and dirty slush all over her hardwood floor...

Is there really any free money?  Probably not.  Someone, somewhere is going to have to earn that money in order to give it away. And there is always a catch.  But this is the best thing I have heard in a long time! The state of Kansas is making 6 million dollars available in a revolving fund for ...

What do you know about buyer agency?  Should a seller care if the buyer has a buyer’s agent or not? I contend that a buyer with a buyer’s agent is better than a non-represented buyer.  A transaction broker relationship is better than an unrepresented buyer. Unless that unrepresented buyer has ext...
