Really Knowing Your Real Estate Market Today's Zebra Report is on a very important topic - really knowing your stats and your numbers. Our market may appear to be sending mixed signals, but if you have been tracking and paying attention to your local market then you will not only have a better idea of what's actually happening, but you will be in a position to explain it to both prospects and clients. Here's just one great example. As our market has changed over the last three to six months, I have seen a lot of headlines that look something like. These headlines are very misleading. You need to be able to dive into the stats because when a client comes to you and say, "I just heard that median sales prices in this are have taken a dive!" Well, let's put that into perspective. Let's sa...

I attended a Zoom meeting on ChatGPT presented by my local Bucks County Board of Realtors.  Wow, it was really fascinating. Chat-GPT is an artificial intelligence that has been up and running since November and in the works for much longer.  Chat-GPT's input is only up to date until 2021, The free version is 3.5 and can be found at open if you want to try it and learn to use it. It would be a great idea as it is going to be the wave of the future. There will be so much ChatGPT will do for us in Real Estate. The speaker Alex had some on-hand experience and gave us some great tips. Think back at how many agents did not learn how to use digital cameras. Think back to how many agents did not use computers. Time marches on and technology does also. Many years ago I remember seeing a p...

BRING a BUYER!  This message is to the egotistical, pompous agent who told my clients he can get their home sold...please BRING a BUYER! This person went on to tell them that he is very aggressive, from a well known brokerage and can get the home under contract in no time! All they have to do is get out of the current listing agreement...  I say again... Bring a BUYER! The real estate market has shifted once again, some people are extremely anxious for business, will overstep boundaries and undermine established relationships to achieve their sales goals. No more contact or he'll wish to have simply... Brought a BUYER! ..............................................................................  Thinking about moving to southern Utah? If you have questions about the any Washington Cou...

Real estate has always been a favorite investment option for many due to its many benefits, including tax advantages, diversification, excellent returns, and predictable cash flow.

That’s why you need to read the best real estate investing books to learn how to become successful in real estate investing. You must also take several factors into consideration before investing in real estate to successfully build a steady stream of wealth. Her...
