So, Where did he get that information from?

Working with a young couple wanting to sell their first home.

I went through what the market is doing, and what has sold in the area .

I did a full market right there in from of them.

I came up with a price and the Mrs.'s said..."That isn't what my uncle Joe said we should list if for."


I am no longer surprised by these statements.

I asked..."Is he a Real Estate agent?"    no

"Has he bought and sold any homes in this area?"    no

"Do you know how uncle Joe got his number?"  no


"So, who do you think has the best information?"


If you are going to sell, trust a professional.  If you don't like the numbers or you think they are wrong, get 1 or 2 more to come in and give you a market value.


Just don't pull a umber out of a hat.

Remember the Day's?
It has been hot but not really oppressive. I saw this bunch of kids keeping cool at the lake. It brought to mind my younger days and how somewhat carefree they were. Now as an adult, there are cares around every corner. When buying or selling… more
Are you sure your agent is competent?
Is your agent competent? Did you go with the first agent you talked to when you saw their listing? Did you ask friends and co-workers about this or any other agent? Just because the agent is new does not make them in-competent. Just because the… more
A home can be most anywhere.
Yes, a home can be most anywhere. It has been said that a home is where the heart is. Others it is more like where they have a roof over their heads. For Nature it could be a different place every night. For right now, this blossom is just what the… more
A thought for this moring…
For me this massage digs really deep into my soul. I look back on life and realize that many times I was my own worse enemy. Once I had realized this, life started to get better with many less low days. While it is up to everyone to control their… more
If old houses could talk…
If old houses could talk what a tale it would tell. It would tell about the growing family and the hardships along the way. It would tell of the joy and laughter within the walls. But most of all I believe the old house would say… Please take car… more
Nice home… but the grass…
It is a great home, but the curb appeal is terrible. The lawn is splotchy and brown. There has been enough rain to keep it green just like the neighbots. We often talk about low cost improvements. Fertilizing your lawn is one of the cheapest… more

Baseball Pt 2 and AR Fantasy Baseball
Well, the Allstar game is done and it was a tight one going 10 innings. Many teams took advantage of the lull to do some trading and to heal a few players. No one expected the Houston Astro's to have the best winning record at the break. The… more
You should have hired a professional…
A few weeks back, My buyer had an offer accepted. We ordered a home inspection. We then made a list of issues (not petty ones. ) After the repairs were made we had the right to re-inspect. The home owner did the repairs himself… BAD DECISION!!… more
