Open House Report – October

BoP

Of the people who came to the open house today, only one was a neighbor, and none were agents.  Yeah sure Jim, but how serious were they?

There are plenty of drivebys; anyone who is willing to park, get out of their car and trudge up to another open house knowing they have been constantly disappointed by others all year (and have to endure another salesman) must have sincere motivation to buy a house at some point.  If they could only find the right house, at the right price!

Big Box vs. Independents

Though I speculate in this video that buyer agents will get phased out, it’s not the best alternative – buyers should have representation, it is just a matter of cost/quality.

In this futuristic scenario, the listing agent will only be representing the seller, and will likely want to process your order at the seller’s price.

Buyers may prefer to get their own representation.

There will likely be real estate consultants available to assist buyers with pricing, and to help address the major deal points.

If you were buying, would you be willing to pay for good help?

It’s been a wild ride since!

In many ways it’s been a full circle back to where it started - trying to deliver pertinent information to assist sellers and buyers with making decisions.

I would like to be your realtor – if you are thinking of moving and want to discuss in detail how I can help, let me know!

Thanks for being here, and participating!

Here’s one of the first foreclosure videos, from August, 2008. All types of quirky things have happened along the way – one of the viewers of this video repeatedly pointed out how I was breaking the law by not pulling my car all the way up the driveway, and was blocking the sidewalk:
