Decision-Making 101

We all want to know “The Secret:” the secret to success, the secret to happiness, to healthy weight loss, and of course, in our profession, the secret to homebuying confidence. The trick to finding a home and then coming to the decision to actually buying with confidence is a complicated equation.

With over 17 years of experience, we understand the chain of decision-making that arises and can arm you with the skills and knowledge to tackle those decisions head on. In doing so, we hope to make the process less overwhelming and provide you with the confidence to buy without regret. This article examines the seven insights into confident decision-making so that you can move out of the old and into the new assertively.


Tales from the Crypt…

We love stories of the trade. Those legends that you and your Realtor friends either swear can’t be real or know all-too-well from experience. Well, in the spirit of the Halloween season, we found these stories that made the hair on the back of our necks stand up. When showing a home to a potential buyer, you can’t help but consider who was living in the space previously and what kind of life he/she/they led. When it comes to showing older homes, the home’s personal legend is certainly at the forefront of all of our minds. And these tales from the crypt are some good spooky entertainment! Do you have any eerie stories from your experience as a buyer, seller, or Realtor? Share with us!

Shop Til You Drop

As a country that invented “Black Friday,” you’d think we’d all be a bit more savvy when it came to shopping for big-ticket items, like maybe, your home loan for instance. According to a recent study, less than one-third of consumers say they always shop around for the best rates on major financial loans like home and auto loans. As someone who doesn’t take bargain-hunting lightly (and an avid Costco-lover), I can say that it’s well worth it to shop around for the best home loan to suit your financial needs and life situation. Different banks and different Loan Officers offer a huge variety of programs to help you finance your home purchase.
