  There is a new app out now for your ipad.  It is called open home pro.  Once you start to use it your hooked.  It makes open houses easy and more productive.  Instead of making the visitor sign a visitor sheet you hand the person your ipad and have them fill in their name and email  address.  Then the app asks questions like: How long before you buy, what kind of home are you looking for, how many bedrooms, would you like to be notified if the price on this home drops, and how big a home are you looking for?  You control the number of questions the app asks.  At the end of the day the visitor is automatically sent an email thanking them for coming to the open house.  This app just came out so I expect many new upgrades in the next few months. If you have an ipad give it a try. If you...

A report issued by LPS on Monday and reported by DS News today, reports that as of the end of February, foreclosure inventory levels were more than 30 times the monthly foreclosure sales volume. In other words, we have over 2.5 years of foreclosure inventory to come through our market. Ultimately, these foreclosures will most likely reenter the market as REO properties, LPS notes, putting even more downward pressure on U.S. home values. LPS reports that the total U.S. loan delinquency rate stood at 8.8 percent as of the end of February.  By the company's calculations, there are a total of 6,856,000 mortgages in the United States that are considered non-current. For people that think they are alone, think again. Your neighbors, friends, co-working and our team included ... we're all goin...

GETTING OUT OF THE BOX TO GET HOMES SOLD If you don't do Open Houses anyway - go ahead and skip this post. If you are one of those people who are always looking for innovative ways to get homes sold, though, you might want to consider this idea. This Sunday, March 27th, 2011 my partner and I will join with four other Realtors (all different companies) who are banning together to do an all-community Open House in the gated community of Parkridge Estates in Orange, California. Sharing the workload (and the cost), we have a full-page open house ad coming out in the LA Times and each of us is using our own advertising venues to get the word out for all. We are chipping in for a drawing ($100. Nordstrom's Gift Card) and participants must have visited all four houses to enter. "Out of the Box...

Great tips on Remodeling your home!               A good remodel should not look like a remodel.  It should match the remodeled custom homes in the area.  You should not cut costs to jeopardize opportunities for increased value.  Since many buyers always look at square footage, always make use of as much square footage as possible.  For example, if you have attic space available or covered patio which is under roof, it is always a cheap way to add square footage.  Remodels that emphasize good design will sell for many thousands of dollars more than remodels of equal square footage with poor design.  Having a good architect, designer and contractor will help improve design. A cooperative team approach in design allows the remodeler to keep an eye on the budget, the quality of the work an...

People are always looking for the bottom of the market like they look for the end of the rainbow.  When you think you got there it is gone.  It is very difficult to find the bottom of the market and it is only after several months that you can look back and say, "That was the bottom of the market." There are home buyers always searching for the bottom of the market before they decide to purchase.  They rarely find the bottom and end up purchasing somewhat higher than the bottom.  You can usually come close to the bottom, but only a few, and by accident find the very bottom. The real estate market is cyclical and prices fall and increase.  You should purchase a home with the idea that you will be in the home for a long period of time and not worry about buying it for the absolute lowest ...

Kool Kool! No more honking by the speedy steel pony. No more horning in the City of Orange, Orange County CA. Good idea! this should have been implemented long time ago, the city wide quite zone will now experience quieter trains. All who like that noise already moved to NY or Chicago long time ago, we love beautiful noise and air pollution free Orange County. In past the train engineers could hoot four times before they reached a crossing. (It was fun ... kids are going to miss it). Now the train engineers will selectively use horn ... only when they travel through the construction zones. OCTA is partnering with eight cities and Metro link to implement the $85 million program, which includes safety enhancements at 50 railroad crossings throughout Orange County. Once the improvements ar...

What I really like about this market is that it makes people think.  When things don't happen people tend to think about things that will make it happen.  That is what is going on right now.  There is an explosion of ideas going on.  Agents are trying to think of new ideas, better ways to do things, and new programs to make our jobs easier.  Just read the articles on Activerain and you can feel the excitement going on in creating new ways to do things.  I love the time we are living in.  I have been in the business for 30 years and have never seen so many new ideas and programs being created.  It is a very exciting time to be a Realtor. Our market has changed dramatically over the last two years and we have changed along with it and have adjusted to the new ways of doing business.  The ...
