REALTORS® are Secret Weapons

Chances are, if you’re thinking about buying a home, you are wanting to research as much information as possible before speaking with a “salesperson.” I don’t blame you. When I’m shopping for a car, I do the EXACT same thing. I want to be armed with information so I feel like I have more control.Continue reading “REALTORS® are Secret Weapons”

ARM WRESTLING: Buyer-VS-Seller

BUYERS CAN HAVE LEVERAGE!  Don’t let anyone tell you differently.  One seller lost out on my Buyer’s offer because he didn’t want to budge on his price or on closing costs. The Seller would rather wait and see if his “back-up” buyer fixes his credit and pays full price.  He HOPES the back-up buyer comesContinue reading “ARM WRESTLING: Buyer-VS-Seller”

I’M NOT CUT-OUT FOR USED CAR SALES

If I were a used car salesperson, I’d have the WORSE sales record EVER! If I knew a car was just pulled out of a river or if the engine was being held by twist-ties, I would send you to another dealership. I’m not saying that all car salespeople are unethical, I’m just saying thatContinue reading “I’M NOT CUT-OUT FOR USED CAR SALES”

Low-Ball Offers

A few years ago, if a Buyer told me, “I want to submit a low-ball offer just to see what the Seller says,” I’d say… “Go ahead, IF you’re not serious about buying the home.” Back then, we had SO MANY buyers shopping because of the Tax Credit (and great rates), it was practically aContinue reading “Low-Ball Offers”

Model Home Tours

From Historical Homes to brand new construction… I enjoy previewing homes.  I NEED to know what’s out there so I’m armed with knowledge when a Buyer calls! The past couple of weeks, I’ve taken some time to tour Model Homes by “Sivage Homes.”  Most Builders showcase a Model to give a buyer an idea of what their newContinue reading “Model Home Tours”

Hollywood Park Home

GROOVY HOMES NEED LOVE, TOO! “Wood” you do something different to this kitchen?  The potential buyer liked the feel of this home.  It reminded him of the home he grew up in. Would YOU make a low-ball offer even though you like this 70’s design? If the 70’s-Style was MY bag, baby… I would certainlyContinue reading “Hollywood Park Home”

My SandFest Story

 [APRIL 2011] – This past weekend I packed my flip-flops and sunscreen and headed out to Port Aransas.  I heard about a Sand Sculpture Contest along the beach of Port A.  So… I rode “across the land, kicking up sand;” I just had to check it out! The “TEXAS SANDFEST” was the place for “gritty”Continue reading “My SandFest Story”
