   There was a member who talked about making crossword puzzles and using them for marketing properties. So today, I decided to try one for a  listing. Hours, not minutes, were spent! Did I need to do this? Did I want to give it a try? Was it fun? Was it just because it was new? Don't know if I w...

 It won't be long before this forever home hits the market. A tiny bit of teasing is in order since it's too soon to give you full details on this four-bedroom home with three and a half baths.   The photos above show the new fireplace doors, a square sink in the powder room with dark bronze fixt...

A caller on my radio show yesterday inspired this post. She was a former client who was not happy with a chimney company that had given some incorrect advice. My suggestion with any contractor or service company is to get good referrals.  Most people love the look and feel of a fireplace and the ...

The snow is gorgeous, no doubt! But it does play havoc with coordinating real estate activities. Just like all homes are not alike, the same holds for buyers, sellers, and inspections. When you get a ratified contract, there are still deadlines to meet, taking from a week or two, depending on the...

  Why would you purchase "As Is"? Maybe there are multiple offers, and perhaps the buyer is comfortable enough to say they will not be asking for repairs. Maybe the buyer is planning to do a significant renovation. Maybe the buyer wants to use this as a way to negotiate. Perhaps a seller will on...

 A few years ago, I wrote Old REALTORS® never die; they become listless. Just saw some comments about being listless in this solid seller's market. That is not where we want to be if we want to stay in Real Estate. Maybe it's time to go after those unique properties that don't "usually" sell quic...

    Inventory is low, a shortage of homes on the market, and many more buyers are vying for the same properties. Agents are reporting multiple showings at all times of the day and night. They allow appointments to be set up by Showing Time, a great service if used correctly. This is where good re...

     When selling a home there can be vast differences between the contract offer price and the actual in-your-pocket number. You need to be aware of this at the time of listing not the time you are signing the offer. And certainly not waiting until the closing date to say “but I thought it would...

    Reading this post by Bliz reminded me of the big box brokerage I was with for 18 yrs. They did everything to promote the company brand. They advertised your open house at no charge and gave you license plate holders with the company logo.The brokers led us to believe it was the company brand ...

After being on ActiveRain for so many years and writing over four thousand posts, I thought it was time to go back a few years to see if the information was still relevant. Here is a post from five years ago. But I Thought... How many times have we heard a buyer or seller say: "But I thought_____...

  I don't think my properties are the only ones getting this kind of attention. In two days, I received 10 separate phone calls from people wanting to rent one of my homes. As soon as they mentioned 'for rent,' I knew this was a SCAM!  The ad, this time, was on FB; last time, it was CL. It is con...

 Who’s Watching? Who’s ListeningThere may be a camera or audio system set up to monitor activity inside when showing a house. When getting a listing signed in Maryland, the seller must disclose home security systems that record audio. But whether there is or is not this type of system, it is a go...

 Updating a bathroom may mean replacing a wall section when there are some worn or cracked tiles. Here is a clever idea from a New York traveler who collected some favorite tiles and used them to personalize an older bathroom. This is a bit of creativity that could also be applied in kitchens.
