PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH

I spend my days talking about houses and explaining about maintenance.  I teach homeowners how to take care of their home, but I don’t always practice what I preach.  I’m like my mechanic who fixes everyone’s car but his own. “Do what I say, not what I do!”  🙂 During “Spring Break 2013,” I’m staying busyContinue reading “PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH”

A House is Like a Box of Cereal

A FACEBOOK FRIEND BRINGS UP A GREAT “LISTING” QUESTION.  When preparing a house for sale:  “Extreme Makeover.  Is that the direction of today’s real estate market?” I enjoy interacting with customers, clients and friends on my Facebook page (Val-A-Homes.com on Facebook).  This week, I had a potential seller post a web page showing some beforeContinue reading “A House is Like a Box of Cereal”

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

During our first face-to-face meeting, my buyer looked me straight in the eye and stated, “Val, I watch those Home Shows, and the REALTOR® always shows a house above the buyer’s price range.”  Showing frustration, she asked, “Why do they do that?”  Noticing that her guard was slightly elevated, I explained (for one), that’s theContinue reading “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR”
