#TBT Our 1st Team Business Card. So snazzy!

old card

Mom and I and our matching fluffy hair! This card and our logo was our first stab at team marketing.

It cracks me up when I think about the first time I met buyers and we drove to about 5 houses. I was NOT convinced that this was the job for me. And now here we are as a team 10 years later!

I’m so lucky my mom taught me everything she knows about this crazy exciting business of Real Estate.

New jobs, new babies, new locations, new life chapters…it’s an amazing career to work with buyers and sellers in the middle of big decisions. Feeling Blessed to have a mother daughter team in a career I love.

A “balanced” housing market. Coming…to a neighborhood near you.

The Northwest Multiple Listing Service has released new stats.

18% change in listings on the market over last month.

(Dramatic Pause)

What does that mean? It means there is a finally a little bit more on the market. Buyers are just starting to feel that shift of more homes to choose from and less pressure.

In general, 4-5 months of housing supply is considered average, or an indication of a balanced market. If the supply drops below 6 months, some consider it to be a sellers market with prices expected to rise. When supply is greater than 6 months, prices are more likely to fall.
Current housing supply is hedging up to meet the demand.

Whoa. Ya, it’s been a while since I’ve heard the word “balanced” in relation to the housing market.
supply_demand
My advice:
Sellers: Set listed. Get on the market. * Les go! * Don’t wait.
Buyers: Get serious about looking. You may not see it right away but you need to at least be ready when you find it. You won’t have to give away your 1st born to buy a home. I can help you with SMART strategy.
Current home owners: Check your interest rate and ask me about your current home value. With enough equity in your home (finally) now is a good time to refinance and get that PMI dropped off your monthly payment.
Renters: Really!? Do I even need to say it? As soon as the market gets balanced out rates WILL go up. A 1% change could price you out of the market entirely. You could go from pre-approved to not-a-chance. Don’t waste time. There is not a housing bubble. Get on the home ownership bandwagon.

So You’ve Decided to Sell…

You’re gonna put your house on the market. And it’s a big deal. It always is. People don’t just move for the fun of it.

Job change
Baby on the way
A new relationship has formed, or ended.
for sale

Whatever the reason, it is stressful. And getting as much equity out of your home as possible is very important.

I get it. I do! 10 years and 100’s of houses Sold later, I have heard a lot of fears about moving.

So why…WHY!… would you trust this massive life change and huge financial transaction to a random agent or friend who just got their license last week?
stick man q

At least ask the following 3 Questions:
1) How many homes have they sold?
2) Who will take the photographs?
3) How do they analyze the Buyer’s contracts?

The Real Estate agent you want:
1) Should possess experience
2) Hire professionals to do photographs (no pictures from the camera on the phone!)
3) Demonstrate knowledge in how to examine a contract to see if the buyer is truly qualified
