Ever wonder about the “Method to the Madness” of price reductions?
At first glance, reducing a price may seem counter-intuitive to protecting property values in the neighborhood or community.
However, if a property is on the brink of foreclosure, it is best to get the property sold at a reduced price rather than the property being reduced even further as a bank-owned property.
The property featured in this post is on the same block where we ourselves live. Do we care about property values on our block?
An emphatic YES!
READ HERE for an earlier post about the disparity between short sale values vs. foreclosed property values.
“…That is the question.”
Folks, I don’t know about you out there, but swimming in cold water really sucks.
So does getting into a bathing suit.
Our newest listing in the Ardenwood area of Fremont has a GREAT swimming pool. The only thing I’d like better about it is if it was 96 degrees.
He Said: “Doesn’t deter me. I love a cool pool.”
She Said: (biting her tongue, wanting desperately to laugh out loud) “Does the cool pool love you back?”

Part of marketing our clients’ properties involves generating interest among other REALTORS. We did so this week by attending marketing meetings where our fellow agents gather to learn about the virtues of each others’ property listings.
Between the two of us, I’m the one often stuck standing there in front of the crowd talking about the virtues of each property we have listed. Usually I’m half-asleep surrounded by overly-energetic morning people, quivering from the caffeine injection that helps keep me standing. Yesterday as I got up to promote our sellers’ properties, I gave the hubby “stink-eye”. As I took the microphone, I admitted to the group what I had just done.
She Said: “I just gave my husband “stink-eye” because he refused to get up to promote his retail listing. I told him I’d cut him off for a week if he doesn’t do it.”
He Said: “I’m not stupid! I’m getting off my butt right now!”
Well, it got a good laugh out of the group. Really, our goal is to get folks to remember our property listings for their buyers, so it’s all in good fun and productivity. After the meeting, Greg was approached by several MEN as they told him “you’re the smartest man in the room!”
