While I seem to be on the topic lately, I have a simple question today.  How do you create buyer urgency in this market today?  We can talk to buyers until they are blue in the face, but sometimes they don't seem to hear us at all!  So what things do you point out with your buyers to help them un...

So it has been spectulated about for a while now, but it appears this month they are finally voting on changing the regulations to FHA mortgages.  How do my fellow real estate brokers/agents feel about these changes, in particular the increase of the down payment amount from 3.5% to 5%.  I unders...

So we are now 34 days into 2011, and I was wondering how everyone is doing on their new year's resolutions?  I know I'm still trying to keep mine, but when you work all the time, it can be really tough!  Maybe mine should have been to relax more.  Who's with me on that one??

Yes, you read that right.  My son loves doing short sales.  He loves doing them more than any other kind of real estate transaction.  Maybe it is the lack of communication he loves, or he loves all the hoops the bank makes us jump through for these things!  Who knows?!?  On a serious note though,...

Another thing I love about this time of year. Snow!  I grew up in western New York, so I am quite familiar with snow over the years.  The snow we get here hardly ever compares to the snow we get back in Olean, New York! I have benefited immensely from growing up in Olean and knowing the ins and o...

Here in Bear, Delaware, we have a lot of natural beauty left.  Al...
