Chasing the Market: Real Estate Halloween Part 4

by Jeremy Larkin

The final episode in our "Real Estate Halloween" series! Let's just have a really honest dialogue here. The only thing more frightening than Short Sales, Poorly Staged Homes and of course...Lowball Larry, are OVERPRICED LISTINGS! They take longer to sell, sell for less money, and are part of the inventory problem in not just St. George, Ut, but every real estate market in the world!

Jeremy dons his best "Weekend at Bernie's outfit to discuss the phenomenon of overpricing and how Sellers benefit on their NEXT PURCHASE by pricing right NOW! DON'T CHASE THE MARKET....LEAD IT!

Let's get serious here folks....nobody likes a low-baller!

In this, our 3rd segment of our 5-party series "Real Estate Halloween: 5 Things that keep me up at night",  Jeremy Larkin talks about why Lowball Larry does the things he does and not only HOW Buyers can specifically overcome reluctance to buy in this changing market, but why those who don't are missing out big time! 


The Poorly Staged Home: Real Estate Halloween Part 2

by Jeremy Larkin

Thanks to all of you for your support and rave reviews of installment #1 in the "Real Estate Halloween" 5-part series: Short Sales! I had a "fittish" sleep last night for sure after spending so much time dwelling on that subject.

That brings us to installment #2 in our Halloween Spooktacular! THE POORLY STAGED HOME. This subject strikes fear the hearts of serious Real Estate Agents worldwide, turns off thousands of Buyers from truly considering an otherwise decent home, and is one of the great downfalls of many a Seller.

We actually SHOW YOU what NOT to do with some shots of poorly staged homes, as well as WHAT to do with some great shots of well-staged homes that sold QUICKLY and for top dollar.

Short Sales: Real Estate Halloween Part 1

by Jeremy Larkin

Welcome to part 1 of a 5-part, 5-day series titled  "Real Estate Halloween: 5 Things That Keep Me Up at Night."  This is a Hallloween Special and OF COURSE, Jeremy is costumed up in something different every day so this series is NOT TO BE MISSED.

Part 1: Short Sales.

Jeremy (naturally) dons a Mullet for this episode to discuss short-sales. What can we say? They send chills down my spine! They take too long, they are confusing, and Buyer and Seller have no control in the process. Necessary evil? Yes, but it doesn't mean we like it.

Watch the video for my rules on "when" to offer on a short-sale as well as the top 3 trends to expect in 2010.

Quit Missing the BEST Deals - St. George Market Report

by Jeremy Larkin

One of my FAVORITE (not) situations as a Real Estate Professional is the Buyer who wants a "bargain" on a "bargain." We show them a KILLER deal and they immediately say, "so what do you think we could get it for?"

I like to refer to this guy as "Lowball Larry." Have you met him? Is wearing your pants right now?

In today's report we talk about the fact that home sales nationwide are up 9.4% month over month - a 2 year HIGH,! And the fact that many, many properties in the St. George area are selling for FULL PRICE or HIGHER in literally just a few days.

Buyers beware - the deals are right in front of you and may never get any better.  CHECK OUT THE VIDEO:
