Very few real estate agents do tons of business. In any given area, there's always an agent or two who seem to do all of the business. But that doesn't mean that the few agents who do most of the business, are the best agents. Nor does it mean that the agents you don't see doing much business are not the best agents. There's a difference between "top" agents, and "best" agents.
This home located at 17 Westwind Drive in Lemoyne is an absolute stunner. Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. The owners had this home built by custom builder Ralph Iacono in 2003 and didn't miss a single detail in this elegant home. Let's take a closer look.
Should you work with a real estate agent who’s your friend or a family member? This is such a common question. And it can be a touchy, awkward subject when you know a real estate agent and are planning to buy or sell a house. Part of you probably wants to ignore the topic. Maybe hire another real estate agent, sell your house, or buy a house, and hope your friend or family member just doesn’t notice or find out. They will. And it will be more awkward if you do that. So, you should address this head on.
We can’t help who we fall in love with, and even more frustratingly, who falls in love with us. It’s simply one of life’s mysteries. And we might not know exactly why we fell in love with real estate, but we probably have our suspicions. Here are six reasons why I fell in love with real estate:
House hunting and spouse hunting are more similar than you might think... Both processes are filled with uncertainty, doubt and emotional upheaval. It's a journey that can force the most centered person to question who they are and what they want in life. One day your hopes might be so high and in your heart you know that this is 'the one'. Then the next day you see unfix-able flaws and realize you have to move on.
So you're thinking about selling your home? I realize you didn't arrive at this decision lightly, and that you might be nervous or scared. There are so many things that are probably going through your head right now. I'd like to help you by offering some advice, and hopefully putting your mind at ease. First, do some research. It's important for you to understand how much money you can expect to get for your home. We need to be realistic. Unfortunately, checking online sites like Zillow or Trulia isn't going to give you the most accurate picture of your home's value. This is why it's important to sit down with a real estate agent that understands the market and will give you a realistic home value estimate by comparing similar properties that have recently sold in your area.
If you were ever curious about how the other half, or rather, other 1% live, here is your chance! If you like gigantic homes with tons of square footage (the largest home sold clocks in with over 15,000 square feet), lots of land, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, tennis courts, libraries, conservatories and lavish interiors, these homes are must see. A total of 16 homes sold for over 1,000,000 in 2016. Below I've highlighted the top 10 most expensive homes sold according to the Greater Harrisburg Association of Realtors MLS.
It's one of the largest and most expensive assets most of us will ever own. It's where we lay our head down at night, the place we make memories and call home. Selling it can be one of the most overwhelming and stressful experiences you may ever go through. So here are 18 tips for living in your home while it's for sale to help you through the process:
At cocktail parties and networking mixers, I'm constantly asked, "How is the market?" I am happy to report that the market is HOT for home sellers. Currently there is a lack of quality homes for sale and an abundance of buyers. Want to see just how good it is?
Working in real estate I sometimes get asked about Rent-To-Own programs, how they work and if they're a good deal. Because let's admit it, it sounds awesome. But rent-to-own financing is very risky both for the buyer and the seller. It's best to have either a REALTOR or a real estate attorney represent you in these transactions.
