  It was not that this charming cottage was not well kept.  From the second that you walked in the door you knew the house had been well maintained.  It was clean and freshly painted.  The kitchen was cute and functional kitchen.  The appliances that were included were newer.  The large living room had two closets and there was a formal dining room.  The only bedroom was big and had a large walk in closet.  The laundry room was a big as any bedroom could be in a approximately 950 square foot house.  The carpet and the drapes were freshly cleaned and most of the seller's furniture was gone.  The elderly seller, in her 80's had chosen by her own decision to move into an assisted care facility     The buyer just loved the house.  The formal dining room could be used as a second bedroom.  T...

First Time Buyers Can Receive up to $75,000 in Down Payment Assistance for Eligible Homes in Torrance    TORRANCE, CA - Located along the Pacific Coast of Los Angeles County, Torrance is the heart of the South Bay.  Having grown up just north of Torrance (Santa Monica), I can remember when I was a kid visiting with family that lived in Torrance as well as neighboring Palos Verdes.  Back then (circa late 60's and 70's), Torrance was a really small community that was more well known for its shopping, oil rigs and employers (some of the biggest in the area for that time) than anything else.  Today, Torrance is a city of nearly 150k residents and still growing every year.  I'm dating myself with this comment, but I remember the Del Amo Fashion Square going up with all of its high-end depart...

Homeowners can make their homes rise to the top when they really understand the principles of home staging and have some direction. Home Staging Designs of California did an "occupied consultation" for home staging in Torrance, California.  This included picking out the paint colors and giving careful directions on what they could do to improve their property for sale. As you can see from the pictures, they caught the vision and did a terrific job. I expect a very quick sale on this home in a great neighborhood. Open House on Sunday, April 11. 22635 Fonthill Avenue Torrance, CA 90505 FROM THE SELLER:  Trying to decide where to begin was my big problem. I am home-decorating challenged, but Beth gave me the confidence to do the job.  She walked me through my house and helped me pick out k...

Client gathering is one of the most challenging things to do in the Real Estate Business, as you must list and sell to stay in business.  In attracting Seller's, agents must Prospect - for potential Sellers and Service - Provide Feedback, stay in touch, advise. In attracting Buyer's, agents must Prospect - for potential Buyers and Service - Analyze the market & Find/Show Properties.   But when it comes down to the meat and potatoes of it all, If you don't list, you are out of business!!!  Whether it was your sphere of influence, ActiveRain, Referral, Sign Call, Farm, Advertisement, etc. How did you get your last listing.   Share your story and maybe it will help someone else, or you will learn something new.
