Helping Students Learn 21st Century Skills

Nicole Talking to StudentsRecently I visited Washington Street School to speak with students about my own professional business experience. Meeting with the AIG students, I discussed my profession as a real estate broker, college and career choices, and the current economic situation. I was glad to help these students learn and prepare for the future and I hope, when the time comes, hearing about my experience will help make their journey into financial independence easier.

2011 Real Estate at a Glance a Year in Review

There are many reasons why I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs. First and foremost is the deep satisfaction I get from helping them realize their dreams and get through the major transition that accompanies buying, selling, and moving.

That’s why, in my ongoing commitment to providing first-class service, I can confidently say that if I can’t answer a specific home related question you have, I’m a phone call  or e-mail away from an expert in my professional network who can.

Everyone wants to know what is happening in our local market and that is why I am sending you this Real Estate Market Update so you will have the facts about what is happening in your market and not just what you hear on the news nationally. Here is a breakdown of sales for 2010 compared to 2011:

As you can see, the market is Richmond County was down significantly in 2011. Total sales almost dropped back to 2004 levels which hopefully signals we have reached a bottom and the market will stabilize going into 2012. As you can see from the numbers above, only one in three properties listed are selling, much lower than last year. Days on market only takes into account the listings that have sold, not the ones that never sell. Also, take a look at the list to sales price ratio; homes are selling at 9% below list price on average. What this means is for a home to sell, it has to be priced attractively to even receive an offer.you can see, the market is Richmond County was down significantly in 2

 In 2012, we will work even harder to be sure our clients get the best marketing and client services available. We have started our website upgrade and are aggressively seeking new ways to generate referrals to help bring buyers and sellers together.

Thanks to all of our friends, clients, and business partners Exit Realty Platinum is the ONLY franchise in Richmond County that increased sales from 2010 to 2011! Exit Realty was also awarded the Best of the Best Real Estate Company in 2011, thank you again for your support!

Promote and Protect

In these days of Internet scams and credit card fraud, we’re all a little more protective of our privacy. However, if you’re selling a home, you also know that posting a virtual tour online and having your agent show your home are absolute necessities for successfully landing a buyer.

What can be done to protect your home against would-be thieves or burglars? You’ve already taken the first step by seeking representation by a trusted real estate agent, because your agent only shows your home to buyers who have been screened and qualified.

Still, when you know that your home is being shown, it’s best to start packing away valuables such as jewelry, electronics, silverware and family heirlooms before the first prospect ever visits. Similarly, when your home is being filmed for a “virtual tour,” remove computers, wide-screen televisions, crystal, and valuable collectibles from the camera’s eye. There is no need to advertise your belongings – your home’s features will speak for themselves.

Further protect your home with motion sensor lights inside and out, and make sure your security system is active and that the service has an emergency contact number for you. You also have the option of registering with the local police department, so officers in your neighborhood can perform security checks. There’s likely no need to worry, but why not play it safe?

Short Sales Get a Tune-Up

Federal foreclosure-prevention tactics have recently been expanded to encourage delinquent borrowers to avoid foreclosure by streamlining the short sale process. Cash incentives are also being offered to the homeowners, as well as to the lenders and the buyers.

Perhaps the best feature of the new legislation requires the lenders to advise the sellers what their minimum acceptable price is before listing the home for sale. Then if the sellers secure an offer for the agreed price, the lender must accept it within 10 days.

This speeds up the short sale process tremendously, since the lender is also required to consult with local real estate agents in order to determine a fair price. Of course, “fair” is a relative term here, because in a short sale, the bank is agreeing to sell the property for less than the total amount due on the mortgage.

However, it is definitely in the lender’s best interest to expedite a short sale instead of allowing the home to foreclose, because on average, the bank loses 50% on a foreclosure, but only 30% on a short sale.

These new standardized procedures, called the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program (HAFA), is a new option for homeowners who have been unsuccessful under existing programs. If you’re facing default, I strongly urge you to contact a real estate agent today to discuss the alternatives.
