Why most sellers fail to hire right agent first time!

Did you ever wonder why there were so many realtors all of a sudden when the market was hot??




Today we're going to talk to you about why most sellers fail to hire the right agent the first time or even the second, third and so on.  So why do most sellers fail to hire the right agent when they're trying to sell their home or buy a home?? And there was research done by the National Association of Realtors that stated 79% of homeowners do not go back to the same real estate agents. So that is a horrifying number, basically almost eight out of 10 sellers do not go back to the same real estate to do another transaction. So why is that happening, why are they failing so miserably?

And that's pretty accurate because I, myself, from my experience meeting a lot of agents, I get this complaint a lot about the agent that they worked with in the past and they didn't have a very good experience with that agent. And this is not to say that all agents are bad, we do have a lot of gre ...

What is the most important thing for you in getting your home sold?

What is the most important thing for you in getting your home sold? That is the question you should be asking yourself when deciding to sell your home…





Today we wanted to talk to you about when you're thinking about selling your home, what is most important to you? So you want you and your agent to make sure you communicate this important fact because there could be a variety of reasons why you're selling your home and that has to be determined. So some people want more money for their home, some people want to sell it faster, some people actually need more time  to close on their properties. Some people just have a lot of things going on in their lives so they want to get it with the least amount of hassle. So it's really important that your agent asks you the right questions and you communicate that with your agent.

So make sure, first of all, you understand what are the important things for you in getting your home sold and make sure your agent can articula ...

Mind Your Mom!




Just about every May I sit down to write Homeward Bound, I write about Mom’s Day. And why not… it is a very special day for very special people.


My Mom used to tell me, seemingly repeatedly, to do this and do that, not to do this and not to do that. ALL, I recall, very valuable advice. Looking back on it all these many years later, I can say she was, and still is, a very wise woman.
 
Time reveals, in fact, just about every caring Mother is a Wise Woman. I can see why we carve out a special day each year to acknowledge Moms.  So here is a shout out to all Mom’s – Happy Mother’s Day!!
 
Unfortunately, My Mom’s Mom is no longer here. I am sure that makes her very sad this time of year. I am sure some reading this can relate and have similar stories. For ALL those whose Mom is no longer with us, may you remember the best about them. ...

Give Me 30 Seconds and
We’ll Save a Kid’s Life Together...





Welcome to the month of April. By the time you are reading this, you will be deep into it. That means I can’t play any April Fool’s jokes on you. I have never been a fan of those anyway. When I was a kid my favorite radio station, 96 Rock in Toronto, announced they were going to be changing formats and playing elevator music and for half the day they did that, only to announce it was a big April Fool’s Joke.
 
Another BIG deal in April is TAX day! Yep! Deadlines for filing those personal income tax returns. I don’t think most people mind paying taxes as long as they are being put to good use. I think it’s the waste that bothers most citizens.
 
Both of these days I mentioned above are for sure conversation starters, one full of funny stories, the other maybe not so much, but there are few ...
