Each scenario are quite different in the approach and the cost but either one is definitely worth the money.Regardless of which option is right for you, this should begin at the curb!

 A "Real Estate Broker" is someone who has taken additional education courses beyond what is required for the "Real Estate Agent" License. To obtain a "Real Estate Brokers" License it is typically required that you have an additional three years of experience as a licensed agent in addition to taking additional courses and taking a "Brokers" exam.  It can be very beneficial to hire a "Broker" in certain situations including transactions that are more involved and/or complicated like short sales or foreclosures just to name a few.  There can be pros and cons to using a "Broker" because they are typically a lot busier and may have less time to spend with you and may be less likely to discount their commission because of their experience and knowledge but on the flip side those things will...

It's THIS WEEKEND! Saturday night going into Sunday, to be exact. And, like the old saying goes, we "Spring Forward" and "Fall Back"So ... this Sunday morning with the exception of a few areas that do not observe this tradition you will gain one extra hour of sleep!Do you know "why" we do this twice per year? It's known as "Daylight Saving Time" and it all began when Ben Franklin came up with the idea but wasn't formally observed until around World War I when the countries that were at war began setting their clocks back to save on coal usage. Things reverted back to "Daylight Standard Time" after the war during peace time but was once again observed during World War II and has been a tradition ever since.Today, more than 70 countries participate in this semi-annual tradition of "changi...

There are some home buyers in the market that must buy for tax purposes. During the Holiday Season there are typically less homes on the market. Less supply means less competition.

Buyers that buy during the Holiday Season tend to be serious buyers. Buying is an emotional purchase and emotions tend to run high during the Holiday Season. Having the opportunity to work off a buyer’s emotion can work in your favor. The Holiday Season reminds many people of family. The home is the foundation of the family unit. More people become motivated to buy during the Holidays more than other time of the year. The interest rates are incredibly low, which a...
