Real Estate Issues

How far is too far? Does having a large geographic range of service make sense for the client?

It is very interesting that just as consumers are demanding ever more hyper-local content and knowledge from agents that we are also seeing another distinct trend in the opposite direction: the tendency to list and sell to larger and larger geographic areas.

Crazy requests, wild concessions – tales of a frustrated home seller…

Sellers with homes listed today will be able to identify with some of the antics that buyers in a bear market will pull. But this is about a listing that was active 14 years ago in 1996 - during another deep housing recession. I wasn't a real estate agent at the time, I was a seller. My mother had just died after a prolonged illness and I was listing her house for sale.

However, some of the numbers show signs of a bottom being at hand.
