You Get What You Pay For

Last summer I was being lazy and didn’t want to cook dinner, so I went to my neighborhood pizza place to grab a slice and a cold drink.  I had been working from home all day and so I was dressed super casual and no make-up with my hair a total mess.  Decided to sit at the bar instead of a table and as fate would have it, I sat next to a couple that was in the process of preparing to sell their deceased mother’s home.  While making casual small I talk the conversation veered to real estate and I mentioned I was an agent.  The wife that I was sitting next to was telling me about the pains and stress of getting her mother’s home ready to sell and I asked who they were listing with.  She had mentioned that they were thinking about going with a “flat fee” brokerage.  A piece of pizza later they were eager to show me the PDF of the Comparative Market Analysis that the agent had prepared for them.  I was beyond shocked to see th ...

1                 Launching on a specific day of the week.

To Sell or Not to Sell? I Have Tenants.

So, you think it’s time to sell your rental property, there are two main courses of action you can take as a landlord. One, you can wait for the lease to expire before selling, or two, you can sell while your tenants are still living in the home. There are pros and cons to both options. Let’s take a look.


In Spokane, the real estate market is booming, which means that landlords, like yourself, who may have been holding onto a property while they waited for their home values and equity to increase could be thinking that now is finally the right time to sell.


Of course, if you are a landlord selling a house, there are probably people currently renting it from you. Selling with tenants can be a major challenge, and a tenant can either make or break your ability to sell your property. It’s important that you plan well in advance. I recommend communicating openly with your tenant. In the end, you may have to make some compromises in order for your sale to be a su ...

Winter IS a Great Time to Sell Your Home!

Home sellers and real estate agents often fear the winter months because it seems like a poor time to list. The truth is that winter can be a great time to list your home for sale.  The median listing price nationwide in February 2018 was $274,900 according to Realtor.com.  As the real estate market continues to favor sellers, buyers are beginning to look to purchase a home beyond just Spring and Summer.  Less inventory, less competition, and more serious buyers are all factors to consider.


Less Inventory ~  Conventional wisdom tries to say that taking your home off the market in winter, or waiting to list until the spring selling season starts is the best way to sell your home. The truth is that if you are trying to sell your home, wouldn’t you rather list when there is less competition?  Why not list your home in the Winter when other sellers are taking their homes off the market? More buyer eyes will be on your property when everyone else is decid ...
