It's Fall. Time To Practice Spider-Fu!

The Autumn Equinox has come and gone for another year, but the signs of Fall started before today.

We've had some cooler days and nights, but still enough hot to know Summer wasn't gone.

Some of our flowers have passed their peak times and some of our late bloomers are showing up.

Leaves are starting to go through their blaze of glory and land on the lawn.  Yep, I don't think I'm going to have to mow too many more times!

And the other clue?  Our eight legged friends have been giving us the opportunity to practice our Spider-Fu!




You know what I'm talking about don't you??!!  That momentary panic and the flailing that starts as soon as you walk through that spider web you didn't see!  The insects and critters know that the colder months are coming and the wood spiders are setting up webs all over the place.

The stink bugs?  They're crawling around every place that they think will let them get inside the home to someplace warm.

The mice?  They're starting to look for winter homes too, so definitely time to make sure all the cracks and crevices outside are sealed.  And it may be time to take some active measures to protect the stuff stored in the sheds and time to install the mouse guard on the beehive entrance.

But what it's not the time of year to do?  That's give up on selling or buying homes.  We're heading into the season where some sellers will figure it's time to give up and come back in the Spring.  But fact is buyers are buying all months of the year, it's just a matter of quantity.  While it's true for some homes they show best during the green and flowering months (ours is one), for most homes staying on the market makes sense as long as you're still practicing the fundamentals:  correct pricing and solid presentation to the market. 

And for the buyers, homes still on the market could be a good indication that the sellers aren't just "testing the market", but that they're serious about getting their home sold.

Understanding What The Customer Wants. Old Style or Tech?

The Real Estate Market Doesn't Keep Secrets
We might like to think the real estate market keeps secrets, but it doesn't. The real estate market speaks, sometimes in quiet whispers, other times in loud shouts. The challenge is to listen as the market speaks and adjust our plans accordingly… more
Inside Information

What Influences A Home's Selling Price?
When we're working with buyers and sellers one of the most critical parts of our job is understanding home values. Getting it right for a home seller determines if they sell or don't sell. For a buyer it's the difference between getting a bargain… more
Need A Cincinnati Rental? Our MLS Might Not Help You Much
Periodically we get contacted by someone looking for a rental. Perhaps it's a patio home they're looking for, or maybe a condo or a regular home. And we do have the capability to search for rentals on our Cincinnati MLS homes for sale search… more
Overpriced, Underpriced or Just Right??
Pricing a home for sale is a bit science, a bit art. If it was pure science those online valuation sites would be a lot nearer to the truth with their estimates, but instead it's not uncommon for those automated valuations to off by tens of… more
The Cap
Once upon a time there was a warship that sailed the oceans blue and I was fortunate enough to be part of that crew for a couple of years. That ballcap above has been part of my life since 1989. The two years that I served on the Taylor I was the… more
I Can't Interfere In Your Agent's Business
Every now and then we get asked questions we can't answer, and it's not necessarily because we don't know the answer, but because we can't get involved in another agent's business with you. Basically if you've hired an agent to help you sell your… more
