There are so many numbers that get thrown out in regards to the market and people make a lot of assumptions based on those. Today I’m going to go over the real numbers to let you know exactly what is happening in our market.
One of the assumptions is that any home will sell. That couldn’t be more wrong. Just in the last 30 days,...

This issue is really the root of all other pricing issues. Most sellers view the asking price as the future sales price. But your asking price is not your sales price. Your asking price is a strategic decision to position your property for what will hopefully be maximum exposure in the market place.
Very simple proof that your asking price is not your selling price is that some homes sell below the asking price, some sell above the asking price, and yes, some will sell at the asking price. However, even in those cases, it is important to understand that the asking price was still a marketing price and it is entirely possible...

Stop following the crowd! Like everything else in life, when you are doing the same thing everyone else is doing, you typically will get average results. That is a law categorically impossible to break. By definition, if you act average, you will get average.
For home buyers, average takes on the shape of doing what all other buyers are doing. Looking at the same homes. Chasing down the latest home to hit Zillow or your favorite website. Attending the same open houses. Calling on the same “For Sale” signs.
The result, much to your chagrin and all too familiar if you are currently on this path, is that you are constantly in a state of frustration as a buyer because...

Why would an agent take an overpriced listing? At first glance it would be a silly and pretty much stupid thing for an agent to do. Why would an agent want to spend their time and money marketing a property that they aren’t sure will be able to sell and by most any objective measure is overpriced?
A stream of very logical questions. Fair questions from home sellers that are simply looking for an honest discussion with somebody they hope is not only a real estate agent, but a professional real estate agent. Somebody that understands the nature of their fiduciary responsibility to their client.
Nevertheless, we all know that there are some homes out there that are priced beyond the range of reasonable value and will sit indefinitely. Perhaps you have actually experienced this ugly scenario yourself with a prior home sale....
Today I’ll break down how to achieve the empowered home sale.
Have you ever sold your home and found yourself wondering if you could have had more, even if you got your asking price? Most people would say yes. Subconsciously we understand that all the traditional home selling model ever gives...

This homeowner attended one of our Home Selling Workshops and loved what she heard, so decided to choose Dan Beer as her real estate agent. With a contingent offers out on another home, she needed this home sold fast to close escrow within 60 days.
One week later, the home was staged and photographed to be put on the market. Our team implemented our 5 Day Blitz™ program, which brought over 35 groups of people to the first day of showings.
Just 6 days and multiple offers later, the home sold for OVER the asking price!

There was very little talk about housing throughout the election, unlike in 2012 when it was a major focus. Despite that truth, housing is set to be majorly impacted by the new administration. Admittedly, much more than I had considered or believed to be true just a short time ago.
There are major components at play that look to greatly impact our local housing market, especially being a coastal Southern California city. The way the environment is shaping out is largely driven off of inflationary rhetoric, financial deregulation and uncertainty. Let’s explore each.
But first, if at any time you want to have a conversation about the housing outlook and how it affects your personal situation,...

Professional Home Sellers Use a Market Positioning Report - Throw Out the Comps!
By Daniel Beer
Forget about the traditional home valuation, CMA, comps and other basic tools that any agent can provide straight out of real estate school with a couple clicks of a mouse. This information only looks at the past but does not look at other critical measures of where the market is moving and how to intelligently position your home into that market.
Throw out the Zestimates and other online auto generated nonsense valuations. Do you really think that Zillow knows what your interior looks like? If you have a view of...

You've lived in your home for a while now and over the years you've probably turned it into exactly what you wanted. So the question is: Should you leave all those do-it-yourself projects you made alone?

So, if you have done any of the following upgrades to your home, you may want to consider getting ride of them or putting the room back into it's original state.

Staging your home is all about making it inviting to potential buyers. To do this, staged homes must achieve a look that is almost supernaturally clean and universal in its appeal. Pets can complicate things.
Though pets may bring their owners joy, they can also bring odors, destruction and clutter, which runs counter to the staging process. As you prepare your home to be seen by buyers, you must minimize the evidence of your pet's occupation in your home.
Deep Clean the Carpets
Carpets trap pet dander that can leave a lingering odor in your home. If you own carpet and are preparing to put your home on the market, start by deep cleaning your...
