Straight From My Email

I have all kinds of reminders in my email and I think these are good things to share. I couldn’t say these in a better way!  The tax incentive has expired, and this news couldn’t have come at a better time to hopefully continue the buying momentum that’s somewhat slowing down. What else could a buyer ask with the interest so low? Why the HOA, too? FHA has a revised guideline that includes allowing buyers to pay sellers’ accumulated HOA monthly dues during the selling process, which could be a deterent in buying condos–just my 2cents logic. Everyone wants this economy to get better….There are just too many holes to seal. Keeping up with the changes is certainly an exercise of Patience.

Hhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

What’s going on? Yesterday I was starting to get pleased with the theme I have for my blog. I finally got to find out how to change my title, and it seemed I had the picture I wanted to stay on the home page. I didn’t realize the second post I did was still in draft when I came back here today. So…let it be published! Lo and behold…my picture is gone! This is not the problem I want to deal with right now!

Closing Escrow in a Week

Closing escrow in a week?!  As new Realtors…my husband and I could only dream this…especially if I keep sitting on my A$$ blogging instead of walking…KNOCKING doors in our farming territory. I’m just postponing the inevitable–as our managers said…we need that face time if we want returns on investment.

Four months of training (there’s so much to learn), distributing flyers (we need face recognition…we’re not burglars), building websites (now blogging –we need exposures), and what nots! We need some reality check in breaking the bank…no, no, no…I did not say ‘breaking into a bank’ though it feels that way sometimes.  😦 ):

To delay that door-to-door contact, my husband had been very good in searching for possible Open Houses even as far as an hour drive to San Bernardino. No LEADS so far, just MISleads and MISSleads! I’m starting to lose my sense of humor. We keep telling ourselves we don’t mind going far…it’s a first-hand look at the market out there. Who are we kidding? So when we found one First Team listing agent close to our farming area, we were delighted to contact him. When he said, he will ask the owner…we were hopeful!

A week or so–just now as I was blogging–my husband contacted the listing agent again, and I heard “That’s great!”…I had the not-great-for-us feeling. True enough…that house on Trevor Street sold in a week! A cash buyer walked in, and escrow closed in a week! What a dream if we could have one that way. Indeed…a lost dream of having an Open House close to our farm where we can invite the neighbors. Now, we should practice our KNOCKtiquette!
