What is that new normal going to look like? Well, like the image to the right, there are a lot of different routes that can be taken.  Most will not lead...

On reviewing everything it didn't make sense as the comps were defintiely there for the home.Anyway, we re-listed the home for a highe...

Often how you look at a problem will lead you to the answer. After Roger Bannister ran a mile in under 4 minutes many others now felt it could be done and achieved similar results. If we believe someone like ourselves can achieve something we want to attain, we will be able in our minds to overco...

I can walk into Valley Forge National Park from where I live, there are multiple trails I can use. I have always loved this place ever since we moved here from the UK, even if it is a symbol of the Revolution against the King of England. I love the wide open spaces, but I have come to love all th...

If you remember a little while ago, I mentioned how an investor client had tried to use a different agent, an assist to sell type brokerage, located in MD to sell his PA property. The sale failed to go through because it did not appraise.  I was puzzled, as the home comped out very well against r...

In every crisis opportunity knocks. Some will use it to take advantage of others or you can use it for good. Some buy up all the supplies and auction them to the highest bidder or setting very high prices, effectively price gouging. They saw one type of short term opportunity. But in the midst of...

Anyway, after dropping the price some, he got an offer. Only the home did not appraise and the deal fell ...
