Potential buyers  increasingly ask me about Days On Market (DOM) of homes and properties in the Gallatin Valley. Many excellent properties have been for sale for years. In fact, in 2012, I sold a property that was my very first listing as a real estate agent. For nearly 7 years, the sellers stayed with me as I moved from Sotheby’s, to ERA, Prudential and now Christie’s (I had excellent reasons for switching firms, beginning with a partner, Stuart Tilt.) Buyers, of course, are hoping the DOM translates to better negotiating position for pricing. Sometimes that is true but other times DOM has little relevancy about the property and much to do with the size of the market. Keep in mind the background information concerning a number of the luxury and high-end properties now on the market: Be...

WHAT TAX ADJUSTMENTS IMPACT REAL ESTATE INVESTMENTS------------------ American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012: A top capital gain tax rate that has seen a permanent 5% increase (from 15% to 20%) for single filers with incomes above $400,000 and married couples with incomes exceeding $450,000. IRC Section 1411: A Medicare surtax on net investment income (including capital gains) resulting in a flat 3.8% increase. RESULT: Higher-income taxpayers receive an increase of 58% as compared to 2012. The fiscal landscape of the United States has changed in more ways than the everyday citizen can keep up with. High earning real estate investors face an increase in capital gain taxes and even for those who fall outside of the category of ‘high earner,’ still face a 3.8% surtax on passive investment i...

  When moving, there are so many stressors that can build up. As a young female adult, moving into a new place means deciding what components of a home will make me feel secure and safe. Living alone has a unique number of elements that make it differently challenging than moving a whole family. Here are a few tips for those who are living alone or moving out of a roommate/group lifestyle to a single one so that you may feel that vital sense of sanctuary within your new home. Get to Know The Neighbors: This does not mean you must become best friends with them, but becoming familiar with those whom you live close to with establish an extra level of security, multiple sets of eyes. People tend to care about the well-being of people they know more than those they do not, so humanize and ac...

  Finally! Bozeman has a site for one stop resource into the Galltatin Valley Open House Schedule for the weekend to come. Click through the link below to find not only our own, but the entire communities’ open houses set to run for the weekend to come. Plan accordingly, interact, ask questions and more! What are your takes on real estate open houses? In the Bozeman area, we have found that opening the house in virtual means accompanied with phenomenal photography far outweigh the time cost, lack of turn around/lead generation, and productivity of an open house. On the flip side, real estate open houses have been a marketing tool for realtors for many years. The only for certain conclusion is that open houses vary on the type of property, location, means of attracting potential buyers, ...

 Five quick tips: No Freebies: Do Not Grab Free Wi-Fi I know it is tempting to grasp onto freebees, but when it comes to online keep your online access points safe and try to only use password protected routers. Having auto connection options on a phone/laptop/pad is great for convenience but not so much when it comes to security. Auto connections have security risks AND can be prosecutable in some areas as a theft of bandwidth. Be Careful and Original With Passwords In order to keep track of passwords, there are high levels of encrypted aps you can get, but most professionals recommend good old fashion paper and pen.  Change passwords often, make them creative, and a little confusing. Waving Cards Another modern handy tool is the ability to ‘wave’ a card and have the magnetic strip on ...

“I live in Miami and had property that was in Belgrade. I sent Jen an email and she responded quickly. My situation was very complicated as I was out of state, dealing with the death of my partner and having to do a short sale on a property I wasn't familiar with. Magically Jen, and her staff, took all the problems in stride and quickly made them their own and dealt with EVERYTHING!!!! All I had to do was sign papers and that was it. I cannot thank them enough for their kindness, hard work and persistence. Getting the weekly updates (even if there wasn't anything to report) made me feel special. Jen and her team realized that the little things do mean a lot. I cannot praise them enough and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone wishing to buy/sell property in the bozeman area.” T...

 This morning’s opening line in the Bozeman Chronicle’s recap of last night’s football game (Cats v. Eagles) is as follows: “Chadron State could hardly breathe beneath the Bobcat Stadium lights. And it hardly had anything to do with the smoke hanging in the Gallatin Valley night.” The game was sold out to the point where students on campus (who are able to get tickets for free) could not due to the limited supply that ran out early this week. Packed stadium, high spirits, and riding the wave of momentum gained last season, the Cats entered a field of explosive fans ready to be thrilled. And thrilled they were.  “A lot of (the second half running success) was the adjustments, but I have to say that Chadron State is very good up front and very solid on defense,” Ash said. “They are strong...

 I have been following the Black Bull story for years.   My golf days are numbered as my passion is fly fishing, but  I know my way around a golf course and more importantly, I see some great ‘traction’ at Black Bull.    If you don’t know the background, the owners of Black Bull gave the property back as they couldn’t make it work based on their initial investment – follow this link for details - http://www.bozemandailychronicle.com/news/article_dda73acc-3855-11df-a77d-001cc4c002e0.html   After a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by the developers, the property was auctioned to the highest bidder.  The winning bidder was a developer from California - Rob Schumacher -  backed by Cross Harbor Capital Group out of Boston – this is the same group that won the bid to buy the Yellowstone Club .  B...

The news of late has all been about the real estate recovery, signs of a turn-around, and boosts. Even the other day I wrote a blog on the frequency of multiple offer situations. Newer breaking news indicates that this long awaited recovery may be ‘uneven.’ As The Wall Street Journal explains in a recent article, “things aren’t getting better rapidly, but we’re also not in the ‘hold-your-hat’ declines of 2010 or the ‘spring that never materialized’ of 2011.”  It is a jolty ride. Home sales are up from last year’s levels, but there have been month-to-month slowdowns. Pending sales dropped in June by 1.4%, but on average they are up by 10% over this last year. Statistics regarding sales of existing homes reads the same. What is causing this trend? Some hypothesize it is the sagging econom...
