How many times is your home shown and you don't receive any feedback from the buyers agent?  It actually happens more than you think. There are several reasons that feedback may be delayed or non-existent.  I know.  It feels like time has stopped when you are waiting (albeit impatiently) to hear ...
When you are looking to purchase a home, you may meet dozens of agents whether through stopping into open houses or a referral from a friend or co-worker. Keep in mind, you will want to interview several agents before you choose one to represent you. This is a huge investment. And just because th...
Sellers: Are Buyers Swiping Left on Your Home? Let me back up a second...in case you don't know what I mean, which means that you have not experienced online dating...you would want a buyer to "swipe right" to get to know you better.  After all, just like the dating apps, your home is judged with...
It is not the first time that I have thought about this.  I am not in the practice of performing dual agency, even though it is allowed in Iowa.  In fact, I have sold over 200 homes in the last 15 years and I have only acted as a dual agent less than ten times!  Since I rarely host open houses on...

I have a buyer that is currently under contract on a home with VA financing.  The initial lender that was tasked with the pre-approval was a referral.  The buyer had friends that highly recommended this lender and so I felt reasonably confident that things would be smooth even though I was not pe...
In fast moving markets, many listings are sold in the first few hours or days on the market.  But more and more sellers are continuing to show their home....in search of backup offers.  What does this mean to you as a buyer?  And why would sellers opt to do this?  I can answer those two questions...
When you are looking for a home, do you picture yourself in a single family home with a fenced yard?  Or do you picture yourself in a high-rise or townhome where you can leave on a work trip and not need to worry about what the lawn might look like when you return?  What stage of life are you cur...
I mean think about it.....if you needed to sell your home tomorrow, what would you do first?  If you are an agent or married to one, you would know that your first call would be to a professional.  But what if you are a successful professional in another field?  Would you try to sell it on your o...
