What This Listing Agent Does To Sell Your Home

Hint: It's More Than Just Planting A Sign In Your Yard! There is a common myth out there that a listing agent is over-compensated for listing and selling homes based on a misperception of what it takes to sell your home - even in a strong sellers market. The Sharyn Younger Team recently sold a home in 2 days. What has to happen in order for that result, particularly in a $700,000 price point which garners less demand? Here's what this listing agent does to sell your home: Pricing … [Read more...]

Hiring A Stellar Sellers Agent

Real estate is an interesting industry. To be a successful agent you need to be incredibly organized, technologically savvy, quick on your feet to anticipate, recognize and solve problems, entrepreneurial, a marketing genius, a great listener, an influencer, an information junkie, an exceptional communicator, and possess an ability to maintain a degree of equanimity (holding steady despite magnificent swings in the market and in the life of a transaction). Despite that long list of skills and … [Read more...]

Are we in a housing bubble?

The most frequent question I'm asked lately is "are we in a housing bubble?".  The Phoenix housing market was predicted to be among the hottest in the country in 2017 and now that we're through the first third of the year, I'd say that prediction is on track to being right on the money. With homes appreciating at a nice clip and inventory shortages at some price points resulting in multiple offers, it would be easy to conclude that we're in a housing bubble. Especially those who lived through … [Read more...]

Buyers And Sellers Can Avoid The Dreaded “Fall Out Of Escrow”

"Derailed" , "Gone South", "Fell Out", "Crashed and Burned" - there are lots of ways to describe a home sale that falls apart before it gets to the finish line. I am seeing an increase in deals that don't make it to the closing table. Buyers and Sellers can become frustrated by investments of time, money and emotion in a process that doesn't result in a win and can put them weeks behind in achieving their goals. There are things both buyers and sellers can do to keep a sale on track and avoid … [Read more...]

Buyers are letting me know that they're ready to roll in finding their next (or first) home. Even investors have caught home selling season fever. My assistant Jennifer and I … [Read more...]

Why Choose A Full Service Realtor?

Choices abound in how you sell your home; why choose a full service Realtor®? Let me tell you of a recent experience I had that highlights the added value of the concierge service offered by a customer focused brokerage. Representing buyers looking for a 3-4 bedroom home for $250,000 in the east valley this spring has been a delightful challenge. There has clearly been more demand for these homes than supply. If buyers don't act quickly, the home will almost always be sold before they know … [Read more...]
