The Active Rain Meet up in Los Angeles: the brain child of Alexandra Seigel:  This is the final and last announcement of the ‘Big Meet Up’!     Now let’s keep things in perspective, Alexandra Seigel decided she wanted to meet with Michael Jacobs and yours truly. She tried to grab us at different occasions individually without success. Since we are all busy people and I am a night owl not a morning person, breakfast was not an option for us, even though they have been to Beverly Hills on numerous occasions. Not wanting to speak for Michael Jacobs, but clearly he was not an easy target either.  She decided to get us together Ron, Alexandra, Michael and me. She caught us at a week moment and we both agreed. ( post to be continued) -----------------------------------------------------------...

Real Estate & Technology Go Hand-In-Hand   As Agents, the latest technology is key to keeping up with the times and continuing a steady business flow.  From Buyers searching for properties to Sellers marketing their home, an ad in the newspaper just doesn't cut it anymore.  We are WAY beyond that now!    According to this infographic from CAR.org, an astounding 89% say they use online resources in the process of home buying.  It doesn't end at searching for a property either.  Researching an Agent, Lender, property values, neighborhoods, etc., is all part of the process.  Having an Agent that is tech savvy on top of being markey savvy is the way to go.   Real Estate & Technology Go Hand-In-Hand   When I'm working with a Buyer, we use MLS searches as well as e-mail blasts and postings to...

As you can see from this visual, millennial home buyers want answers and they want them now!    I think this is true for ALL human beings who are buying or selling a home.   More often than not, the purchase or sale of a property will be one of the largest financial transactions a person will complete in their lifetime and having a Professional on their side to guide them through and answer questions as they arise is KEY to getting the deal done!   Communication is Key to Opening Doors in Real Estate   Agent response times are one of the biggest complaints clients have. When they have urgent questions that come up, they want answers ASAP & their agent is expected to get back to them in a timely manner.    Buyers considering a property want all of the information about that home at the t...

Thank you Real Estate. Gratitude is the Best Business Practice!As I begin to wind down my 2014 Real Estate whirlwind and prepare to host Thanksgiving surrounded by loved ones, I realized there is no better time than the present to reflect on the past year in pure Gratitude! Thank you Real Estate. The best business on Earth.One of my favorite affirmations is "Gratitude for the substance at hand duplicates the substance indefinitely." I can attest to the truth of this statement. I wake up every day and thank God for this life that I've been blessed with and the opportunity to live another day. Most mornings I write in my gratitude journal, only positive things, and even if I have worries & concerns, I find a way to be grateful for them. There is a blessing in every dark situation! It's a...

As most of you are probably aware, the recent death of an Arkansas Realtor has hit way too close to home for us all.  I wanted to share this important infographic with a reminder that we must always be aware of our surroundings and that no commission is worth your life.  Trust your gut, and don't be afraid to ask for identification from a new client.  I'm including a link to an article about exactly this in case you haven't heard the story yet.   Risky business: Real estate agent's killing hits home for Realtors   Stay safe out there everyone!!!

Well I'm happy to report (per LA Times) that only 9.3% of Los Angeles homeowners are under water now compared to the rest of the nation at 17%. Sadly though it seems that my own generation of homeowners ages 35-44, Gen-Exers, make up for nearly half of those negative equity homes at 45.8%!!     GENERATION X STILL DROWNING IN THEIR HOMEOWNERSHIP?   Baby Boomers and older buyers had more time to pay down debt and benefit from price run-ups before the housing crash. Younger buyers – Millennials – largely haven’t yet bought houses, but those who have benefited from low prices after the bust and likely made a large down payment.   But Gen-Xers were entering prime home-buying years a decade ago, just as prices soared, then plunged. They have definitely been hit the hardest!! I have several Ge...

When the Real Estate market took a turn towards recovery in late 2011, early 2012, everyone was excited to jump back in & make those purchases they had been sitting on the fence on for so long!   Traditional Buyer vs. The Investor - Round 2!   Traditional buyers who required loans to purchase homes found themselves in a steep uphill battle against the all mighty CASH investor who at the time was willing to pay more based on speculation & could close sweet painless escrows with virtually no contingencies in record timing such as 10 days or often even less!   Those market conditions made it very hard for the sweet young family or first time single college grad to compete! Many of them had no choice but to sit back & wait, or buy the finished product of these cash "flippers" at a premium....

As housing markets slowed a bit year over year across major markets we ponder the causes. One I can definitely speak of in my own business is the new stricter lending guidelines that have been broadcasted to would-be home buyers leaving them fearful that they won't qualify. Even some people with the best of credit scores and decent savings are questioning their ability to purchase their first home, or jump back into the housing market again after walking away from their homes many moons ago. Pent Up Housing Demand Driven By Fear Let's face it. Applying for a mortgage is as uncomfortable and probing as a colonoscopy for some people. That’s even people who know they have great credit!! Another fear factor is the huge amounts of cash in the real estate marketplace right now and the conven...
