Bubbleinfo Turns 9

2014-02-09 13.53.50

It was nine years ago today that we got started!

It was early on a Saturday morning that I signed up for a free blog website, hoping to inform and educate sellers about the impending doom on the horizon.

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:

More Documentary

The documentary-film production continues, with the crew of four spending two days in town this week.  Guy Mossman is the cinematographer – he also did the documentary ‘Buck’ which won at Sundance:

The video shows us trying out WeVideo, which is a mobile app that provides full video production on your phone.  It already has 3.5 million customers, and Jostein is committed to bringing it to the realtor community next:

Then the clip captures one of the few times Guy provided some direction – usually he is invisible, and just lets the action flow:

Make the Deal

kalpati

Forget the price point, it’s the deal-making that is interesting about this case.  The sellers of this home just acquired it last week as part of a home swap, and before closing I had arranged for vendors to do a quick tune-up.  We hit the ground running, and $10,000 worth of new carpet, paint, and lighting got it ready for market in a week.

It listed for $398,000 on Saturday, and yesterday the model match across the street (listed for $392,000) went pending. It came back on market today, and they raised their price to the range $395,000-$405,000.

What do we do?

Lower our price to $389,000 – we want to be the next one to sell:
