Perhaps we obsess to much over some things... these are the listing photos for a property that sold for just below fair market value average price in less than 30 days. I'm certainly not advocating poor photography but I see this kind of thing more often than you might think. Inadequate marketing but the right property in the right location at the right price = SOLD anyway. (Makes my amateur photography skills and equipment look pretty damn good. LOL (Not sure what it says for RTB for our industry though.)
Recommended product. I purchased these in-ear headphones about a month ago and LOVE them. Very Comfortable fit and great sound quality. Retail for $99 but shop around for lower prices. I think I paid about $70. http://www.klipsch.com/image-s4i-ii-black-headphones
Anyone using the Mariner Paperless software with their ScanSnap? With code, it is 40% off this month making it less than $30 (pretty inexpensive if it works as they say). If you use it, do you like it?
I understand, Art Vuilleumier. Sorry you see my remarks as petty bickering... they certainly weren't meant as such. If I were spending money on something that wasn't being welcomed by others, I would want to know so that I could direct my dollars elsewhere.
Tim, (I am curious George today - LOL) Do you find that holding a high end property open for brokers increases the odds of selling the property? Or do you do it more to placate the seller? I ask because I know what my high end buyers are looking for and I have them set up on an auto-notification within the MLS for all new listings matching their criteria. Both the buyers and I see each new listing as it hits the market and either they contact me to see it (if it grabs their attention) or I contact them because I think it might be right. Perhaps I am just missing the boat and a great opportunity (which I don't want to do) but I fail to see how taking time out of my schedule to attend broker opens is more efficient than perusing the MLS every morning and acting proactively on new listings, reduced prices, etc on properties for which I know my buyer prospects might have interest in seeing themselves. BTW, I am more than happy to preview listings for out of town buyers but for those in town, it seems redundant to make two visits and a bit disruptive for the sellers. --- I must be missing something!?
I don't like being "cold called" therefore I do not "cold call" others. It has to do with a silly little rule of life my mother taught me that went something like "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." That said, I don't really care how other people conduct their own business... if they see nothing wrong with cold calling and it works for them, that's no skin off my nose.
As repugnant as this is, I have to question how anyone could just leave it up to their broker, when that same broker allowed another member of the company to publish such a blatantly wrong listing. I am with Bill Lublin- you fight like its 1776, but the battle should have started long before the broker's lawyer threw the agent under the bus.
agree kimberly its weird to me the city of troy cheering the trojan horse... is strange behavior...real estate been around a long time.. longer that ztr.. or the internet and lets not kid ourselves..without our listings..they are worthless sites to the consumer....
