Marketing For Sale by Owner

I am excited to learn about two new marketing tools I have added for my listings. One allows me to have an edge over other agents when selling my listings. It is so powerful and enhances what my own website can do. The other tool is for For Sale By Owners. They are able to keep up with the home values around them by receiving live up to date information on homes f0r sale and that have sold in their neighborhood every month. It allows them to customize it and use it for marketing. I can also make personal websites for For Sale by Owners helping them gain a greater web presence. I think we should all work together to help sell every house out there. Am I the only one thinking like this? Oh well,are you a FSBO that needs more exposure? I love Real Estate!

2009 Five Star Real Estate Agent

I am so excited to share my news. I have been chosen as a Five Star Real Estate Agent in Customer Service. This is such an amazing honor especially for only being my second year in the business. This is done by a third party survey company. They ask all homeowners that purchased a home that year. Based on answers the top 7% agents out of the 5 major counties in Jacksonville are awarded this designation. I am so happy that my customers think that much of me and the service I gave to each of them. I will be published in the Jacksonville Homebuyer magazine in March. Thank you again for all of your referrals.

Tax Credit for Homebuyers

Okay, the new Year is here. Any resolutions to buy a home? Why wouldn't you? Home prices are what they were in 2001-2002, interest rates in the 5% range, and as little 3 1/2% down you have to be a nut to not take advantage of this. Builders work with Realtors, don't be afraid to take one with you on your first visit. We actually can get you a better deal than if you walked in alone. Sellers and banks are still willing to pay your closing costs. All of this and you still want more. Now you only have until July 1, 2009. When you buy a home before this date you are entitled to a $7500 tax credit. This is not an income reduction, but an actual credit. It's like laundry lottery. What could you do with that? Pay off a credit card, decorate, etc?? The mind boggles. Until next time....
