In real estate there can be many ways to market properties. Price changes can be one of the tools agents or brokers will commonly use.

A price reduction that is done with the intent of selling the house will typically have to be a dollar amount that is substantial enough to sway potential buyers to purchase your property over others, or put your property into a different price search. For example, if someone is searching for property on Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia or SourceRealEstate.com, and they are searching up too $600,000 but your property is listed at $601,000. Your property would not show up in their search results, however if your property was listed at $600,000 and within their search criteria, it would be displayed to that potential buyer.

I just want to give a huge shout out to Sabrina Jones-Schroeder. She is the Designated Broker of Exit Real Estate in Spokane, WA. I just finished a transaction with her and I must say, out of all of the Realtors in this city, she is among the best! We were able to close this transaction quickly and with virtually no hiccups throughout. Oh! By the way, both myself and her had surgery during this transaction and neither one of us missed a beat!

 

It is agents like Sabrina that make doing real estate fun and enjoyable! This is also the second time I have sold this particular house! If you are looking for an agent in Spokane, Spokane Valley, or anywhere in Eastern Washington or Northern Idaho, give Source Real Estate a Call.

I just wanted to take a moment and recognize one of my competitors. Jeff Thomas with 4 Degrees Real Estate in Spokane, and myself just finished a transaction that went very smooth! Even after the transaction has been finished we have still had some questions and he has been willing to still help.

 

It is always great to see other real estate agents in Spokane working great together. Even though Source Real Estate offers a 1% Listing Fee, we are by no means discount real estate agents. We strive to make sure we interact with other agents with the highest level of professionalism and ethical behavior.

 This is one of my biggest pet peeves with real estate agents in today's fast paced technology driven environments....

When you are looking to sell your home, you must begin to put yourself in the mindset of a buyer, one of the most important items is the presentation the buyer sees online. Photography is a key factor in selling your home. If you do not have an agent who is bringing in a professional photographer top take your listing photos, there is a very high probability that you have higher the wrong agent.

In a news release from December 2018, the National Association of Realtors says that “99% of Millennials search on online websites compared to 90% of Older Boomers and 70% of the Silent Generation”. When you consider how buyers are viewing

Today I was asked a questions about the weather and the impact it does or does not have on the showings for any particular listing. I will say, in almost all cases, the weather will have a direct impact on the number of showings. You can generally see the number of views online increase when there is poor weather, however, just like you many people do not want to be out when the conditions are unfavorable. Last night in Spokane, we received about 4 or so inches of snow, I do forsee this slowing many people down as the do not wish to be out on the roads sliding around with the rest of the drivers out there. You can take this opportunity to look at your home and continue to prepare for future showings, for example doing a deep clean on a bathroom or another

This property listed by Source Real Estate is now under contract and the seller has accepted an offer!

Are you in love with this property? Make sure to keep in touch and be on the look out if this property comes back on the market. The overwhelming majority of all properties that have received a mutually accepted offer will close on time but in rare instances the property will rejoin the market and be available. In many cases, it may be worth your time to email or call the listing agent to see if the seller will accept a backup offer.

In 2019 the VA lending cap looks to be increasing to $484,350, this in an increase from $453,100 in 2018. Do you think this amount needs to be higher? Also, what amount do this limit get you where you live?

 

One of my pet peeves that I frequently see listing agents do is not list VA on the acceptable terms of sale. While I fully understand some of the reasoning for not doing this, i.e. if a home is selling over the lending cap, I think this is taking away from the sellers potential buying pool. As we know, loan type is one of the search criteria Realtors use when assisting their buys. If a listing agent does not check the box for VA, that property simply will not show up in the search. I have personally seen VA buyers purchase well above the VA
