It's Up To You To Listen & Heed The Advice

You can listen, or notPart of my role as a Greater Cincinnati real estate agent is to provide advice, both to our clients and potential customers.  Now for clients, that advice is going to be tailored to their specific needs and not some one size fits all.  That specific advice will be delivered via a variety of means:  direct conversations, emails, texts, whatever mechanism works best for that particular client.

For the general public, that advice is most likely to be delivered via this blog.

There are many themes I've emphasized repeatedly.  They're just THAT important that I keep writing to a few topics in particular:

1.  The importance of having your own agent to guide you through the process. Whether you're a buyer or seller, you don't know what you don't know because a home sale is infrequent for you.  For an experienced agent, it's a very familiar road to travel.

2.  The importance of having an agent for new construction.  You DO NOT get a better deal from the builder for being unrepresented, and if things go sideways do you want someone else to take on the stress of dealing with the builder?  Or do you enjoy confrontation?

3.  It's a snooze you lose business.  See a home you love?  Act TODAY, not tomorrow.

4.  Have your ducks in a row for your financing.  The buyer that is prepared has an advantage.

5.  Properly pricing and marketing your home is the difference between getting top dollar and sitting stagnant on the market for months.

The list goes on, but the bottom line is it's up to you to heed the advice. It's in your best interest (and mine too) if you do so. 

But it's ultimately your call to listen, and if you repeatedly ignore the advice of your agent, don't be surprised if they opt to sever the working relationship.



Interested in knowing more?  The answers are easy to get, just call me at 513-520-5305 for a chat.  Like what you hear, we can meet in person and get even more detailed about determining the best path to take care of your future home needs!


We look forward to hearing from you!

I Got Away With It Before
We added honeybees to our menagerie last year. We've had anywhere from 1-3 hives and we keep them on the back edge of our backyard with a fence between the Chihuahua break area and them. For the most part those bees are pretty mellow. They… more
Ignorance Is Not Bliss
When I was younger I could pretty much eat anything I wanted without repercussion. I didn't care about calorie content or how much salt was in the food. I might even ADD some salt if I thought it needed it. Well, I got older and things changed,… more
Not Every Contract Makes It To The Closing Table
I'd love to say every contract progresses all the way to a completed sale, but that's not the case. Things CAN happen, from the minor to the major. Over the years we've more than a few deals that started off full of hope disintegrate along the way… more

The Neighbor's Junkyard
The house could have worked for my buyers. The right features. The price was in the right range. The location was convenient. Ahhhh… but the neighbors, there's the rub. One car that looked like it hadn't moved since its heyday in 1977. Another… more
