If Your Going To Sell, I Wouldn’t Wait For The Market….

April 23rd, 2010 by Steve Hirschler

I was at this same meeting yesterday with Tyler. Even though this isn’t a positive message, I think it is important for sellers to hear. Thanks Tyler! Something that I also heard from Leslie Appleton Young (Chief Economist for CAR) is that over 50% of the homes that sold in California last year had multiple […]

Does your Big Bear Real Estate agent tell you what you want to hear, or the truth?

October 27th, 2009 by Steve Hirschler

Listening to a Real Estate agent that has their interests in front of yours can be a big mistake. I must admit that I have a problem, I am often Brutally Honest.  Being honest is not the problem, but I know I could improve on the way I deliver the message. I don’t do the sugar-coating […]

October 25th, 2009 by Steve Hirschler

  I get this question on most listing appointments that I have. The sellers want to leave some room to negotiate. In a market that is moving in the sellers direction, pricing your home with a little cushion will benefit sellers because 30, 60, 90, or more days from the list date, the home will […]
