Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations

How Many NOs Will It Take?

No to Yes?Some kids figure out if they ask their parents enough times, eventually they can wear them down and turn that No to Yes.

Can I?

Can I?

Can I?

And in some cases in adult life that same strategy just might work too.

But in most of real estate asking for the same things over and over just lead to No, No, No, and more No.

As a buyer you can consistently refuse to take your agent's advice and offer too low over and over, and the answer from the sellers will consistently be No, how about full price?  Or maybe even silence.

You want a builder to change something they say they won't change?  That is just going to pile No on top of No.

You want to ask for something not in the purchase contract long after it's timeline?  That'll be another big No.

You want to buy a house in a hot market segment, but aren't in a hurry to see them?  That leads to more NOs.

How do you avoid having to deal with so many NOs?  Hire an agent to help you that understands the market, and then LISTEN to them.  No amount of HGTV shows and online articles about home buying are going to beat the expertise a knowledgeable agent can bring to the table, but all that expertise is worthless if you're not going to heed the advice.  A good agent knows how to get you from NO to YES, or at least knows when NO is going to stay NO.

Keep Calm, We Got This!
Buying and selling a home has its moments when there's the potential for everything to go thermonuclear. A misunderstanding about what is or should be. A perception issue due to a miscommunication. A big defect with the home found during… more
How To Help Your Favorite Real Estate Agent
Sometimes we work with a buyer for a short time. We look at a few houses, we help you buy one, everything goes smooth and in about 4 weeks from the first time we met, you're in your new home! Other times it's a more extended process. Literally, I… more
So You Want To Fly Solo?
I'm not a pilot and I don't know how to fly a plane but coming from Annapolis I've known plenty of Navy jet jockeys (and if you don't know they're a fighter pilot, just wait a few minutes, they'll tell you soon enough! ). But there is something I… more
One No Closer To Yes
I don't know who was the first to say "We're one No closer to Yes", but I know the first time I heard it. Years ago we had a home for sale and the first showing feedback wasn't going to lead to an offer. Mrs. Seller responded with "… more
More Than Meets The Eye
You might think your real estate agent only helps people buy and sell homes, right? And while that's the most visible function of what we do, we do lots of other things that may or may not be visible. So while it might not be easily apparent,… more
Flower Blooms And Houses For Sale
I enjoy seeing our flowers bloom and our honeybees at work. Now I don't always have the time I'd like to tend to our flower gardens, but that's part of the price of being a real estate agent. When other people have the weekend off to plant, weed,… more
I'm Not The Right Agent For You
To borrow the Dirty Harry quote, "a man's got to know his limitations. " There are some aspects of my craft that I'm very good at performing. You want someone who's got the Cincinnati patio home scene covered front and back and side to… more
As A Real Estate Agent, There ARE Some Things I'm Lousy At!
"The perfect is the enemy of the good. " Voltaire I'm human so I'm inherently imperfect. I'm an engineer so the emotional stuff is something I've had to learn and listen harder for. I'm good at talking people down off the real estate… more
Gimme Some Elbow Room!
Some people like being close to people. Some like privacy and elbow room. While I might specialize in helping people with condos and patio homes, which rarely have much in the way of a yard, I'm on the other end of the spectrum personally. We… more
