Published by: Daisy Gregg Double dipping in the Real Estate World, means the agent represents both the buyer and seller to be able to achieve the full 6 commission. It is frowned upon because it is a conflict of interest to represent both sides. You really canrsquo;t do that ethically. Without helping one side more than the other. So many agents have other agentrsquo;s hold their open house so the other agent can pick up a buyer and there isnrsquo;t a conflict of interest. So with that in mind, doing open houses is a great way to pick up buyers and gain experience. Agents want their open house to do well so here are 10 open-house mistakes to avoid: No. 1: Hovering As a seller, your job is to get out of the way. Let your a...

Published by: Christine Pease March 8, 2019 International Womenrsquo;s Day is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural economic or political. This day came from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the 20th century. In 1945, The Charter of the United Nations was signed and was the first international agreement to affirm the principle of equality between women and men. Ever since, the UN has helped create a historic legacy of internationally-agreed strategies, standards, programs and goals to advance the status of women world-wide. The first National Womenrsquo;s Day observed in the U.S. was February 28th, 1909. The Soci...

Published by: Daisy Gregg You have decided to buy a house Yay, good for you But do you know the first steps you need to accomplish to actually make your dream happen? My recommendation is to figure out your budget. This isnrsquo;t the first real, physical step but before that, you should try and decide what you can comfortably pay each month. You need to be able to make the payments as if you were renting. You have to pay the mortgage back in the time frame they allow. (I am sure you knew that, but wanted to reiterate just in case). Try to factor in all of your monthly expenses and subtract from your income to see what you could reasonably pay each month. Make sure to keep some extra money for savings and your emergency fund, ...

It should go without saying that buying a home is a huge step in anyone's life and it requires plenty of planning. The problem is that many first-time buyers don't know how to make sure they're ready when it comes time to buy, which could mean that you're missing out on amazing homes.

As we talked about last time, interest rates have gone up a bit. So what does that mean for the buyer? Should you wait? Well, since rates are predicted to continue to go up, the answer is no, you should not wait. As this article points out, yes, the record low rates are gone, for now at least. Who knows what the future will hold. Most economist are saying that the next five years will see an increase in rates. So certainly waiting is only going to make your house more expensive. Sure, you could wait for the rates lower than 4% to come back. But you may be waiting a long time. The odds point to us getting back to 6-8% in the next few years, long, long before we get back to the sub 4% rates again. So, don't let a small jump in rates now sc...
