Agents! Give Yourself a Raise! Stop Paying Your Broker Too Much!

Are you an experienced real estate agent with an established business working for a big name brokerage? If so, how much of your commission is your broker keeping every year? How much are they charging you in fees every month? Yes, some of the big names have a few helpful services and software packages, but Read More

What is my property worth?

I’m sure you’ve seen the automated valuation tools that you can find on Zillow, Realtor.com, and even a few agent’s websites.

Appraisals In a Seller’s Market

In a hot seller’s market like we have right now, buyers are competing for homes and driving up sale prices. That’s great for a seller, until the appraisal.

The size of the average American family has decreased over time but the size of our average house has grown. Why? I’m convinced it’s the amount of stuff we have. Do we really need 4 different types of strollers and a wagon? Does my 2 year old really need 18 pairs of shoes? Well, that’s Read More
