Recession Proof Career

Larry O. Doss Friday, November 27, 2009

The recent economic conditions had unemployment rates higher than what they had been in more than a quarter of a century. Ironically the housing sector had created incredible opportunities as the interest rates in buying and selling were on the rise. During such times the country saw a gradual rise in the demand for real estate agents.

To become a real estate agent you can be educated in any of the business schools through diploma and course programs or you could have attained skills through online courses. What matters most to become a real estate agent is that you must posses a lice... Read more

New First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Bill

Larry O. Doss Thursday, November 5, 2009

Let’s all hope this bill passes. It will continue to spur the economic and real estate recovery.

WASHINGTON — Buying a home is about to get cheaper for a whole new crop of homebuyers — $6,500 cheaper.

First-time homebuyers have been getting tax credits of up to $8,000 since January as part of the economic stimulus package. But with that program scheduled to expire at the end of November, the Senate voted 98-0 Wednesday to extend and expand the tax credit to include buyers who already own homes. The House is expected to vote on the bill Thursday. Buyers who have owned their c... Read more

At the beginning, Alejandro Maybuena lost the Sacramento house he bought in April 2005 for $350,000. At the end, in early 2009, Kim Gish bought it for $109,000.

Stories like this have happened more than 40,000 times in the Sacramento area. Still, the tale in particular of one house in California’s capital region shows the sweeping change in a real estate industry that once involved mainly a mom-and-po... Read more

The first quarterly report on new-home sales in the Sacramento area during 2009 is in – and there’s one good sign amid a new low of 699 sales in January, February and March.

Excess supply – houses built or almost built without buyers – are back to lows last seen in mid-2004 and early 2005, the height of the buying frenzy.

The tally as March ended was 1,159 empty houses in El D... Read more

In area conversations about real estate it’s often an act of faith that a widening gap between Sacramento and Bay Area home prices might soon spark a new migration east to buy houses cheap and put an end to free-falling prices here.

Nice theory. But wrong.

The once-widening gap that seemed to promise help has already closed. While 17 months ago the median sales price in Santa Clara Cou... Read more

Why Use a REALTOR

Larry O. Doss Thursday, April 2, 2009

Many consumers consider selling their home directly but eventually turn to REALTORS®. Smart home sellers realize they need the expertise in pricing their home, making connections with REALTORS® working with buyers, arranging and staffing open houses, and coordinating with other professionals in the sales process.

Only about half of all real estate agents are REALTORS® -- the top half, in our not-so-humble opinion. REALTORS® work independently, for small agencies, or for large brokerages. They help people buy and sell residential or commercial properties, vacation homes, and land; they... Read more

The Secret to Pricing Your Home to Sell

The Secret to Pricing Your Home to Sell
by Jim Remley, Pro Performer Seminars

Contrary to popular belief, when selling your home its value is determined by one thing and one thing only - what a qualified buyer is willing to pay for it. No more and no less. Sure, many sellers will argue that their home has an insurance replacement value, or an appraised value, or a tax assessed value, but unless your insurance agent, your banker, or your tax assessor is willing to write you a check for the home - guess what? None of that matters. A home without a buyer has no value in the market p... Read more
