    How to Interview a Real Estate Agent

    While home sellers have become more market savvy than ever thanks to the wealth of information at their fingertips, knowing how to choose a real estate agent can still pose a challenge.

    Between recommendations from friends, a family member with a dusty license on the shelf offering to help, and a dizzying array of review websites, it’s difficult to know who to trust with one of the most complex financial decisions of your life.


    Smart consumers interview potential real estate agents before they decide which agent they want to hire. Just as you're sizing up the potential for a good fit, the real estate agent will likely be interviewing you, too. Be wary of agents who don't ask you questions and probe for your motivation. You wouldn't work with just any agent off the street, and good agents are selective about their clients, too.


    It is crucial to know which questions to ask so your real estate agent can meet your expectations in terms of pricing, timing, and overall exp ...

    11 Reasons to Sell during the Holidays

    You’ve heard it from real estate agents before. “The Winter season is slow.” Or, “No one is really buying or selling.” And even, “I’ll get started in the New Year, it’s a new start right?”
    ...Wrong. The truth is, it’s better to be ahead than behind. The winter months are the perfect opportunity for you to find the motivated buyers, with less competition of homes on the market and better opportunity to sell for more!


    11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring when there are traditionally more houses on the market which could ultimately drive prices down. This could mean you sell high and buy low.



    10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.



    9. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings on Holidays and when needed.


    8. Janua ...

    712,000 Homes Regained Equity in the Past 12 Months! Did yours?

    CoreLogic’s latest Equity Report revealed that “over the past 12 months, 712,000 borrowers moved into positive equity.” This is great news, as the share of homeowners with negative equity (those who owe more than their home is worth), has dropped more than 20% since the peak in Q4 of 2009 (26%) to 4.9% today.

    The report also revealed:

    The average homeowner gained approximately $14,900 in equity during the past year.
    Compared to Q3 2016, negative equity decreased 22% from 3.2 million homes, or 6.3% of all mortgaged properties.
    U.S. homeowners with mortgages (roughly 63% of all homeowners) have seen their equity increase by a total of $870.6 billion since Q3 2016, an increase of 11.8%, year-over-year.

    The map below shows the percentage of homes by state with a mortgage and positive equity. (The states in gray have insufficient data to report.)
