Local Realtor sues weathermen for continued inclement weather.

Local Realtor, Norman Frenk, sued weathermen at local Houston area channels 11 & 13 and those at The Weather Channel for what Frenk indicated was “continued inclement weather”. “We didn’t sign up for this here in Houston.  It’s supposed to be sunny and hot! If we wanted continued rain, we would move to Oregon or somewhere with a rainforest.  I am sick and tired of this, and the weather people better get it right this week. I have enough to do in selling homes without having to take on the weather too.” It has been raining on and off for

Don’t Let THIS happen to YOUR home!

Listing your home is a business decision – not a personal one. These photos prove that you need a professional – not a “friend”. As a professional real estate photographer and successful Realtor, I am always struck by the number of listings with poor marketing. The single most important item on any real estate advertisement will be the photograph(s), yet many Realtors do not invest in a good quality camera or a photographer.I have seen photos with toilets open, people sitting on couches, dim lighting, over-exposure, photos of themselves in mirrors, unstaged homes and poorly executed photo layout. These photos

Home Staging Should Include the Male Perspective

Professional home stagers consult with homeowners on ways to sell their homes quickly and for the most money possible, but often lost in the design process is the fact that men are involved in buying decisions as well. When having your home staged, it’s important to remember to appeal to both sexes and do some things that will pique a man’s interest just as much as a woman’s. Professional stagers take into account buyer demographics, buying psychology, and utilize design elements in planning out the rooms and space and the use of lighting and its effect on the space. Don’t

8 Home Staging MISTAKES!!

You may love your home, but that doesn’t mean that everyone coming through the door will feel the same way. What may be “charming” to the seller may seem off-putting to a prospective buyer.

That would leave approximately 12.5% of the agents that not only give the homeowners advice as to how to ensure their home stands out, but also give the correct advice.

Will my Home Sale close on Schedule?

That’s the million dollar question these days.   Everyone needs to schedule their move.  Sellers have to have the movers and buyers have to have their funds to close. What happens when the bank can’t get the papers done or there are still conditions to be met?  Closing is delayed.  And how many closings are delayed?  Actually, in the real world, about 50% to 60% of the loans close on time.  Others may be a day late, a week late or even several weeks late. Who is responsible for charges incurred if a buyer does not close on the home on
