Key Takeaways:

  • Sellers tend to overprice and spend a tremendous amount of effort trying to defend their price, even if the market doesn't support it.
  • Pricing a home correctly is a partnership between sellers and their agent, not a battle of wills.
When it comes down to it, the most important advice a real estate agent can give sellers is how to price their home. No matter how beautiful or well-maintained a property may be, how many upgrades it has or how well it shows, if a home is not properly priced, it’s going to be a tough sell.

The battle for agents most often lies with aligning what sellers’ think their home is worth with its true market value.

These disparate realities can be difficult to merge

Are the terms “real estate agent” and “Realtor” interchangeable? Those inside the industry know that they’re not, but they also know that it seems to be a bit of an industry secret — many consumers aren’t sure at all what the difference is between a real estate agent and a Realtor, or whether there even is one.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lamberto Valdez and his Wife on short notice as they pulled into Las Vegas with no knowledge of the Las Vegas Market. They told me that the last Realtor they met didn't show them any other areas but the Strip.  I had them get into my car and off we went to view all of Las Vegas has to offer. We drove through some of the most desirable communities as in Aliante, Providence, Summerlin, Golden Knights Arena, Rhodes Ranch, Southern Highlands, Mountains Edge, Lake Las Vegas, Green Valley, Anthem, Seven Hills, and Macdonalds Ranch. They loved the fact they saw new locations that they never heard about. I always show my client's the value of my services to go beyond what they expect from a Professional Las Vegas Realtor.

Agents across the US are getting calls from would-be clients who realize buying is suddenly getting cheaper

Like an avalanche growing larger as it tumbles down a mountain, real estate agents are seeing swelling demand from buyers as mortgage interest ratesplummet and — contrary to what some observers previously expected — home buying actually gets cheaper.

The latest news of falling mortgage rates came Thursday, when a new survey from Freddie Mac revealed that the average for a 30-year fix-rate mortgage had dropped from 4.28 percent to 4.06 percent — the biggest single-week decline since 2008. The rate drops are tied to the Federal Reserve’s belief that the economy is poised to slow down, according to an economist from Freddie Mac.

But concerns

We know how important we are to the transaction — it's time everyone else knows too

  A vast majority of today’s consumers believe that selling real estate is an easy business. Many believe sites like Zillow provide all the information they need to locate the right house and close the transaction. Sadly, both groups are seriously mistaken.

There are three primary reasons consumers hold these beliefs:

  1. The reality TV shows have glamorized the business of showing properties and writing offers without showing the behind-the-scenes work it takes to close a transaction.
  2. Many of the technology companies promote the belief that an algorithm is the only thing needed to help a consumer locate and then

Las Vegas New Home

Retiring to the Las Vegas Valley!

The buyers were very particular about the home they were buying. They absolutely needed parking for their RV, which can be hard to find in a certain price range. They looked at numerous resales and the buyer finally decided to consider a new build. Their agent, Tami Jacobson of the #1 Tonnesen Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties in Las Vegas, made them aware of a Henderson Lennar community that offered an RV garage with their home, which was exactly what they were looking for!

The model they selected was a single story in the active adult community of Heritage in Henderson, Nevada, part of the master-planned community of Cadence, one of the newest and most exciting new home communities in

SELLING A HOME IS HARD WORK!

Most homeowners would probably prefer to have a professional licensed Realtor work on their behalf to sell their home, but not everyone sees the value of paying a fee for an agent’s expertise. I get it — it is not easy to recognize all the work it takes to prepare a home for sale, list it, market it and make sure everyone involved in a transaction is on schedule and committed all the way through closing.

Great agents make great partners because we bear the (substantial) cost of marketing, we have the ability to expose people’s homes to more buyers, deal with the mounds of paperwork and save the homeowner time, stress and money.

Still, people sell their homes as a For sale by owner

Here are the top six myths about online property shopping -- busted

As real estate agents, we’ve all been on the receiving end of internet leads. Whether they be for one of our own listings or for a property in a ZIP code or territory that we are paying for, engaging, working with and converting these leads into actual closings is a hit-or-miss process — and a lot like winning the lottery.

Endless articles, books, webinars and social media chat threads have been dedicated to this very topic: What should we agents do or not do, say or not say? How and when should we follow up? And although that content is helpful for real estate agents, it’s time we flip the script and start educating consumers on what goes on after they select “click here for more
