Via Facebook and the Realtor Action Center, I just read this article by Kenneth R. Harney in The Washington Post regarding Fannie Mae and appraisals.  Fannie Mae, beginning in September, must contact an appraiser where there is a discrepancy between the value they give a property and that of the ...
I've said it more than once, and I'll say it again:  Mr. Seller, I know that your neighbor sold his comparable home for a much higher price than what I'm suggesting you list at.  But that was 4 YEARS AGO!  You had your turn!  It is now a buyer's market, and buyers will not only not pay what you w...
I had lunch today with a good friend and sometime real estate investor.  Its been awhile since we've gotten together, just the two of us, to catch up on life, work, family, etc. She's always checking out local Jefferson County, West Virginia listings through my website and asked how busy we've be...
In the last several weeks, this Sheryl Crow tune has been bopping along in my brain.  Change is good, so they say.  But it isn't easy to accept and often isn't welcome.  There have been some pretty significant changes in our office lately and the one I'm talking about now is the change to our log...
When you read my title, you may have been under the impression that I list and sell real estate on the weekends and in the evenings: AFTER I finish my "Real" job.  You know, the one where I make a steady paycheck, receive benefits and get paid vacations.

RESPA-tory therapy is what we'll all need after the first time we have a closing with the new requirements and HUD-1, right? Last week before the new changes went into effect, Mike Briel (our local go-to closing attorney and all around good guy) came in with his worthy assistant, Tiffany Hine, to...
I just finished participating in the VREBC and it was FANTASTIC! No technical guru am I to anyone except the girls in my office (I can usually figure out a connection problem or un-jam the copier--they really need me in there), I have been excited about this event since mid-December when I regist...
I'm so cute! Not to make any of the other ranchers out there jealous or anything, but really I am just adorable!  And I am looking for some new owners!  My current family has plans to move, so I could be your new home!  You'll love my floorplan with 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 full baths plus my fen...
