  We were winners of a door prize at the RSPS Symposium this past March but we just received our prize. We received phone calls from people that we networked with while we were there that we won a door prize but know one could tell us what we won. We called the people who ran the symposium they called all vendors that had door prizes but know one again knew what we one. Finally a person at Viscape was checking a pair of pants not long ago and found our business card in a pocket. The person who pulled the card thought a PA agent won but could not find the winning card so they gave it to another agent in PA. After the card was found the person felt bad and informed us that the person found the card and we were a winner. Even though they gave the door prize to someone else they decided to ...

  Even with home prices at their most affordable level in years should we not request or demand from buyers a BFI, A Pre-Qualification, 24 hour notice for showings? Does this not begin the process of are they tire kickers, window shoppers or true buyers? How will they be during the buying process? I think It could be one of the smartest things we could do. I guess it really comes to your business goals?      Keller Williams Real Estate 601 Bethlehem PikeBuilding B, Suite 100Montgomeryville, PA 18936Main Office: 215-631-1900Direct: 215-850-9640 · Contact Form http://jeffrickertteam.com/

  Looks like if you are in New York you get an added bonus as a first timer.  First-time home buyers in New York have an added incentive. Thanks to a new tax credit equal to 20 percent of their annual mortgage interest. The New York State Mortgage Credit Certificate, which they say lasts for the life of the loan, is projected to save some borrowers as much as $30,000 over the years. They say eligible buyers must meet income criteria, take out a fixed-rate loan, and occupy the home as their primary residence. Because of the incentive it can be used in conjunction with a federal tax credit of $8,000. Good news for New York maybe it will spread to other states.       Keller Williams Real Estate 601 Bethlehem PikeBuilding B, Suite 100Montgomeryville, PA 18936Main Office: 215-631-1900Direct:...

Can someone tell me what Google Juice is?  Is it the ethereal substance which flows between web pages via their hyperlinks? Pages with lots of links to them? is it the value that Google gives to your site? Is it the value added up for each link so you can get better search rankings?     Keller Williams Real Estate 601 Bethlehem PikeBuilding B, Suite 100Montgomeryville, PA 18936Main Office: 215-631-1900Direct: 215-850-9640 · Contact Form http://jeffrickertteam.com/

  Why do some houses sell and others don't?There's no ultimate answer to this question. Could these be the six top reasons properties stay on the market: Lousy pictures on the Web. Priced too high for the neighborhood. Blah interior; ho-hum landscaping. Little online marketing and hard-to-find MLS listings. Low commissions. Practitioners make sure their customers see properties that offer a payoff. Miserable maintenance, including ceiling stains, leaky faucets, and ancient furnaces.     Keller Williams Real Estate 601 Bethlehem PikeBuilding B, Suite 100Montgomeryville, PA 18936Main Office: 215-631-1900Direct: 215-850-9640 · Contact Form http://jeffrickertteam.com/

 More Good News!!! The associated press said we are in a three-month streak in an upward rise in existing home sale which hasn't happened since 2004, which was during the housing boom. It also appears the turnaround in the housing market is finally here and indeed may be gaining some speed!     Keller Williams Real Estate 601 Bethlehem PikeBuilding B, Suite 100Montgomeryville, PA 18936Main Office: 215-631-1900Direct: 215-850-9640 · Contact Form http://jeffrickertteam.com/

Has anyone heard anything about H.R. 1728?   This is bill has been created to amend the Truth in Lending Act and is reform for consumer mortgage practices, provide accountability and to provide certain minimum standards for consumer mortgage loans.   It permits a consumer to assert a right to mortgage loan rescission as a defense to foreclosure. It prohibits specified practices, including: (1) certain prepayment penalties; (2) single premium credit insurance; (3) mandatory arbitration (except for reverse mortgages); (4) mortgage loan provisions that waive a statutory cause of action by the consumer; and (5) mortgages with negative amortization.  This could be scary stuff.  Here is a link for more info.http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-1728       Keller Williams Real Est...
