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”

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!
