  • Real Estate Soft Landing – Or Crash?

    Real Estate Soft Landing – Or Crash?

    25/11/2019 Duração: 06min

    Real estate isn't always predictable. Given changing conditions, language used to describe housing is rife with lingo from other industries that experience constantly shifting events—some catastrophic—like aviation. While housing is axiomatically 'grounded' compared to the aircraft industry, from time to time Oregon real estate market activity is described as akin to a 'bumpy recovery,' 'hard ride,' 'crash,' or 'soft landing.' This raises the question among those buying or selling a home of how real estate crashes are avoided and what does a 'soft landing' mean?  Find out more in this insightful real estate podcast!

    One simple way for homesellers to improve their results is by taking advantage of the current housing market. While homeselling is typically easiest in what's known as a 'seller's market' when housing supply is low, homesellers can make this technique work in most market conditions.

    The Perfect Home Sale: Fact or Fairy Tale?

    01/05/2019 Duração: 10min

    Most residential real estate transactions are ultimately successful, meaning they actually 'close.' Such a 'happily ever after' scenario has sellers receiving their money and buyers, their new house. However, given the many steps along the way, many real estate transactions have a few 'bumps in the road.' Sometimes it's a home inspection defect. At other times it's a lendability issue, like an appraisal. Or maybe a legal or title issue, such as an unexpected lien or easement, like a highway or railroad right of way, or perhaps a faulty legal description. Successfully helping home buyers and sellers navigate through these kinds of transaction challenges is a Realtor's job. Many people are wondering...is the thought of a perfect real estate transaction fact...or fairy tale? Find out more, in this helpful Oregon real estate podcast episode.

    Can You Handle An Honest Real Estate Agent?

    30/01/2019 Duração: 12min

    A famous, oft-quoted movie line is 'You can't handle the truth.' Yet have you ever considered how that statement might relate to hiring a Realtor? In other words, since agents provide information to help your bottom line, are you truly interested in being informed with the truth, or might you prefer not to know?  It's no surprise that some sellers and home buyers aren't always willing to deal with certain issues. Instead, they may choose willful ignorance, denial, or other avoidance techniques that are frequently only temporary. And the list of those possible challenges is endless. A myriad of issues can throw real estate transactions into seeming chaos. But by hiring a Realtor, you've got a real state problem solver on your team. A good real estate agent is like a Swiss army knife - very handy to have around in a variety of circumstances.  But in seeking an honest real estate agent, be prepared for certain situations where the truth may hurt, at least in the short term.

    Holiday Househunt Hysteria: Hot or Hoax?

    01/12/2018 Duração: 13min

    Common wisdom suggests Oregon home sales activity should decline during the holidays. At first glance, this makes sense, given Oregon's less favorable weather then, along with less daylight and a general aversion to adding yet one more task to what is for some, an already overloaded holiday schedule. However, there's a compelling case that the time surrounding Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's is one of the most active seasons of all...and for a variety of reasons you might not have considered.

But regardless of how stories about prison are shown in the media, the simple fact is that most people have never been incarcerated. As a result, one common question about prison life is if it's very much like how it's portrayed...or is it significantly different than that? There are also other questions you may never have considered. Like what happens if you're selling your home...from prison? In other words, is it possible to sell your house...from the big house? In today's program, we go behind the walls of freedom to see what it's like to work with multiple convicted homesellers. We'll also learn some life lessons from each individual behind bars.

  • The Many Faces of Oregon

    The Many Faces of Oregon

    26/09/2018 Duração: 14min

    The diversity of Oregon residents is hardly surprising, given the fact that a majority of Oregonians are not native to our state. It turns out that fewer than half of Oregonians were born here, with more than half hailing from somewhere else—most often California & Washington. In fact, roughly one in five Oregon residents were born in California! So what are the faces of Oregon...and how might this affect you if you're buying or selling a home in our state?

  • How Multiple Homebuyers Change Everything

    How Multiple Homebuyers Change Everything

    14/08/2018 Duração: 25min

    When multiple buyers express interest in a property by each writing an offer, the balance of power has shifted substantially in favor of the seller. As a result of this decided shift, buyers typically become more competitive. Why? Because fear of loss can be a powerful motivator. And while it's possible for three, four, or even more buyers to compete for the same house, the principle is essentially the same, regardless of how many multiple buyers write an offer. Adding more buyers to the mix, however, does have a tendency to 'quicken' the pace.  What can buyers do to lower the volume, lessen their own anxiety and reduce the frenzy without getting caught up in a multiple buyer scenario, all while making sure they don't miss out on the house of your dreams? Plus, what can sellers do to maximize their leverage in getting the best possible offer? And for both buyers and sellers, are there specific tips you can use to ensure you're 'in it to win it' for your next home purchase or sale? Find out more...in this he

    16/07/2018 Duração: 08min

    A common saying states 'Knowledge is power.' Have you ever wondered what kinds of information others may have about you? You may not have considered how much insurers know about you, your home, or car, but the insurance industry holds quite a bit of information that can significantly affect your insurance costs, especially if it's either incorrect or incomplete. The bottom line is that while insurance companies may have 'secret' records on you, just because you haven't known about it, doesn't mean it has to remain 'secret.' And believe it or not, you can not only get a copy, but it's also free! Curious? Find out more in this helpful Oregon real estate podcast.
