Your Home: Top reasons why homes aren’t selling in a seller’s market

Monday, March 27th, 2017

The title of this column almost feels like the “Top 10″ segment on David Letterman’s Late Show, but this list is no joke. That’s right: There is no humor in getting your home and keeping your home ready to show at a moment’s notice all day every day and then never receiving an offer. In […]

Your Home: Are sellers making concessions?

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Are sellers making concessions? And by concessions I am not talking about providing snacks for potential buyers. Concessions in this column are the ones that sellers can make towards a buyer when a home sale is being negotiated. In the strong sellers market that we have been in for the last three years, sellers have […]

Your Home: We all need each other

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

I know this sounds like a very “kumbaya” topic, but the statement is true. We do all need each other. Sellers need buyers to be sellers and vice versa. Listing agents need buyer’s agents to bring them buyers on their listings, and buyers need listing agents to bring on new inventory. I bring up this […]

Your home: Don’t take it personally

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Yet again this week I was reminded of how personal a home sale can be. Really, the same applies to a home purchase as well. This week we listed a home for some great clients in the Midtown area. They have been incredible clients to work with during the preparation stage. They have followed all […]

Your home: Another one bites the dust! 43 showings and 13 offers!

Friday, March 14th, 2014

The seller’s market strikes again! I am speaking of our most recent listing at 7900 Tomahawk Road and its incredible story. First and foremost, congratulations to our clients Tod and Carolyn. They have done a beautiful job remodeling their home and clearly the market appreciated all of their efforts. Way to go guys! Yes, 43 […]

Your home: Who’s in charge here: buyers or sellers?

Monday, March 10th, 2014

So, just who is in charge in this market? The seller or the buyer? In a balanced market, meaning neither a buyer’s nor a seller’s market, the answer is that no one is in charge and it is a level playing field for both parties. However, we are not in a balanced market right now. […]

Your home: Clearing up misconceptions about the Prairie Village market

Friday, February 28th, 2014

First let me thank you all, the readers who support our column. Last week’s story about the Larigans was our most read column to date. And it received the most shares on Facebook. Clearly good news spreads quickly. I have received several comments about the sale of the Larigans home as well — several of them […]

Your home: A PV Cape Cod with 28 showings on one day and multiple offers? What a market!

Friday, February 21st, 2014

That’s right folks, 28 showings in one day. Our team’s record up until now was 15. Congratulations to the Larigans! On that note, I would like to thank the Larigans for allowing me to share their story and for their faith in our team to deliver. Tim and Amanda are incredible clients and absolutely deserve […]

Your home: Waiting until spring to sell your home will probably cost you

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Oh the spring market! The two words together have a great “ring” don’t they? I do love the spring market. Mainly because I love the weather. Not because it is the best market that we will see all year. Honestly, as a seller, the market of today offers better odds. I have had the privilege […]

Your home: How to make an offer that a seller cannot refuse

Friday, January 17th, 2014

It is January 2014 and the market is already heating up. Inventory is still low and buyers are hitting the streets already in pursuit of a great home. If you ask most buyers about their concerns or struggles in today’s market, they pretty much all have the same two answers: not enough to choose from, […]
