Wherever you live, there is a chance of a natural disaster striking, this is inevitable. It is important to be fully prepared for any sort of disaster. It may be expensive to be prepared for any home disaster, but it's better to be safe than sorry! Below are some things to consider when preparing for a disaster: Evaluate the types of hazards that could pose a threat to your home and family. Select a safe room within your home or community. Remember, you may not be home when disaster strikes, so it's a good idea do know somewhere safe you can go if you aren't home or can't go there. Ironic or not, an example of this is a community church. Have an escape route and meeting point for fires, as well as other disasters. Again this could be a church, grocery store, or gym. Set up contacts that...

New-home sales got a big lift last month, selling at the fastest pace in two years, the Commerce Department reported Monday.  Single-family home sales rose 7.6% putting them at the highest level since April of 2010. In addition, prices are on the rise too. The median price is now $234,500! "May's sales report is a welcome sign that the market has returned to a more solid growth path following lackluster reports in March and April, and is in keeping with our expectations for continued, steady improvement through the end of this year," says David Crowe, National Association of Home Builders’ chief economist. The market still has a long way to go in order to fully recover, but every little step is a good and hopeful sign. Source: “New-home Sales Surge to Fastest Pace in Two Years,” MSNBC.c...

Predictions on Where the Real Estate Market is Going… A majority of more than 100 economists and real estate experts say that home prices will likely bottom by 2013, according to the Zillow June 2012 Price Expectations Survey. The real estate experts surveyed predict that home prices will fall 0.4 percent this year before inching up by 1.3 percent next year.  To support their claim, this trend has already begun to happen. The first quarter this year has brought with it a 2% drop in home prices and the expectation is that they will begin their rebound in the next quarter. In fact, appreciation predictions support that the value will increase by 3.5% between 2012 and 2014! “It’s good to start to see some convergence of expectations among economists, as it lends further support to the clai...

When I see an article like this one, I cannot help but read it and share my opinion. . . “When I set out to evaluate the real estate industry, in as far as ways in which value could be added at the “B” and “C” ends of the spectrum, I did not set out on any “witch hunt” for mediocrity. However, that being the actual case, there are far too many “witches” of real estate out there. Not unlike used car salesmen (the cliche), Realtors have sometimes taken a bad rap. Now as we look into how they operate, there seems to be some justification ever more.” This article was tough to get through, but I think I did pull some valuable lessons from it I would like to share… and to speak out against the cynicism against Realtor’s in general. ARTICLE CRITICISM:  “In most cases, these people are far too ...

Real Estate always has its challenges. When it is doing poorly, buyers are struggling to finance their dream. When news turns positive, like in today’s market, when even with the market getting healthier by the day, the challenge is now high competition. A shortage of good homes in a market that is primed for buyers leads to intense multiple off situations in nearly every transaction. “Would-be buyers are packing open houses and scrambling to make offers on properties before they are even listed. Bidding wars are erupting. And real estate agents are vying fiercely to represent the few sellers that do exist. Housing inventory has sunk to levels not seen since the bubble years. The number of American homes with a "for sale" sign hit 2.5 million in April, the lowest number for an April sin...

Overall, recent housing reports have shown that the housing market is picking up across the country. "Excluding distressed sales, home prices in March and April are improving at a rate not seen since late 2006 and appreciating at a faster rate than during the tax-credit boomlet in 2010," says Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. "Nationally, the supply of homes in current inventory is down to 6.5 months, a level not seen in more than five years, in part driven by the ‘locked in’ position of so many home owners in negative equity."

  PAPERWORK: Having a detailed list of repairs, updates, and upgrades will greatly assist in how an agent words the description on MLS and therefore everywhere else your listing is seen. New roofing, especially in Bozeman hail-happy weather, or other similar perks can be marketed as features of your listing. APPEARANCE: De-clutter, clean, stage. These are all things you as a home-owner can do and do well to maximize the wow factor of your home. Photographs are possible buyer’s first introduction to the home and first impressions are vital. If your home is picture ready when you sign the papers then it is a streamline to viewers online.         INSPECTION: Pre-sale inspections allow you to identify the problem areas prior to putting it on the market. Many issues are beneath the visible s...
