When I meet with clients for the first time, I try not to get too excited because I can be forgetful. I can get so caught up in talking about the beautiful area I live in that I forget about what's really important and that is finding out about my clients' criteria for purchasing real estate. The criteria is unique to each individual, couple or group of individuals you meet with. However, there are certain points of interest regarding a property that should be brought to a prospective buyers attention early on in the search process. 1. Confirm that your buyers are not already working with another realtor. Some realtors use the Buyer Broker Agreement. Most Realtors ask and trust that the buyers are being honest and forthright just like they expect their Realtor to be. 2. Price/ Inventor...

Be Positive, Anticipate and Know The Facts! Your clients don’t know the market like you do. While many know a lot about new listings and foreclosures coming on the market, they still don’t have the detailed knowledge you have acquired over the years. Your experience is critical in guiding your clients through the fog of this market. Encourage them to tap into it, utilize it, share it, discuss it and understand it. People have a tendency to watch the news and think the sky is falling in without verifying any of the information they’ve heard or discussed with friends. It’s up to you to know your facts and come out swinging with accurate market information when this type of discussion starts. Acknowledge their position, but be sure to point out the resiliency of the housing market, histori...

  I live in Mono County, Ca.. The land area is approximately 3,030 square miles, 80% of which is federally owned. Much of the land is contained in the Inyo and Toiyabe National Forests. The land is rough, mountainous and spectacular. The Town I live in is Mammoth Lakes. Tiny place! About 4 square miles with a year round population approaching 8,000 people. And many of the locals have dogs and cats.   For the most part, the local pups are well tempered, friendly and easy going. Most seem to have been adopted from the local animal shelters. In Mono County there are two animal shelters. Bridgeport Animal Shelter is on Jack Sawyer Road just South of town. Open Sun, Mon, Wed, Thurs: 8:30 to 10:30. Tues, Fri and Sat.: 8to 4:30. Phone: 760-932-7407 Whitmore Animal Shelter is located on Benton ...

  I am not a big bicyclist. Just prefer to run. But when I was riding I joined Eastside Velo (ESV). It's a local bicycling group that organizes rides, in the Eastern Sierra, throughout the riding season which is April - October. The average ride attendance is between 30-60 riders per event. Supported rides feature "feed" stations about every 25 miles, highway signage, repair assistance and often a rolling SAG vehicle for repair/rescue. At the conclusion of many rides there is a hosted lunch, or alternatively riders will meet a venue such as the Whoa Nellie Deli, establishments in June Lake, Mammoth or Bishop. ESV members range in ability from novice to expert and most supported rides are "out and back", so the distance traveled can be up to the rider. When I was riding, I did a couple o...

  The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is open top to bottom, east to west, until your legs give out and/or your lung capacity!! Get some air on Shotgun, fly down Kamikaze, saunter on Downtown or play in the tacky dirt on Paper Route. 14 trails are open for all ability levels. This weekend, the mountain plans to open even more terrain on the upper and lower mountain.

Creative Utilization of Seller Contributions You get a listing, you work with your client to price it right, and you put it on the market. Distressed sale properties come on the market and undercut the price of your listing. You share the new listing information with your client and you discuss lowering the price to combat the direction of the market. Is there more that you can do for your client than asking him/her to lower their price? Yes!! Use a seller contribution to buy down a prospective buyer’s interest rate which will lower their monthly payment and increase their purchasing power. Or let’s say someone makes an offer on your property with 10% down. Why not use a seller contribution, from sale proceeds at the close of escrow, to pay the mortgage insurance premium for the buyer....

Selling Tips That Make A Difference   Today’s real estate market is a bonanza for buyers with great credit, and deep pockets. There are great deals for single family residences, condominiums, town homes and land, but prospective buyers are looking for sellers to sweeten the pot.
