Have A Home To Sell?

        See Our Results                Ask These Questions                 Our Marketing Program          Free Home Value Analysis

As you look at brokerages to call home and build your real estate career, there are two very important questions you should always ask yourself. The answers to these questions are critical to the success of your career as a real estate professional.

  • Does your real estate brokerage help you sell homes?

  • OR
  • Does your brokerage sell “things”to the real estate agents?

At most brokerages there is a split with the brokerage, then desk fees, transaction coordinator fees and on top of that either franchise fees, technology fees, or some legal defense fund you have to pay for. Then with what’s left it’s

Yes, this floor is made of shards of broken glass!

Kelly Phillips Badal  

In the world of home design, walls usually get all the attention. But we’ve found some wildly inspiring flooring ideas that’ll leave you looking down instead of up or out. Prepare to be floored — pun very much intended.

The point is, that swath of space hanging out down low doesn’t have to be forgettable — it’s as ripe for a bit of creative DIYing or incredible artwork as the walls around it.

Step re-e-e-e-al carefully around this 3D floor mural.

Just check out the broken-glass tiled floor or the dare-you-to-step-here hungry crocodile floor mural.

Chasing rainbows, are you?

That’s not water, just a clever illusion.

This photorealistic carpet offers an amazing bird’s-eye view.

Housing market slowdown expected, but prices in most areas are still rising

KIRKLAND, Washington (October 5, 2015) – Scarce inventory, new rules for mortgage closings and affordability concerns will likely slow home sales around Western Washington during the remaining months of 2015 and into early 2016, according to spokespersons from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. 

The latest statistics from the MLS show a double-digit drop in inventory, a double-digit jump in closed sales, and a near double-digit increase in prices from a year ago, prompting one industry leader to say the trends aren’t sustainable. "We simply can’t sustain double-digit increases in sales when inventory levels continue to drop every month," remarked OB Jacobi, president

Applying for a home loan soon should get easier and less confusing. That is the goal, at least, of changes to the mortgage application process required by the 2010 Dodd-Frank banking reform act, which finally kick in Saturday.

Clearing up confusion

If you have taken out a mortgage, you know how confusing the process can be. The law has required lenders to reveal in writing the fine points of the loan. But the documents that must be used are hard to understand for anyone who’s not a lawyer or a real estate professional.

Timing has also been a problem. The final details of a mortgage typically have been dumped in borrowers’ laps along with the final loan papers, meaning that, typically, a borrower has to take in the costs and terms of their new
