Looking Out From the Garage: June 2007

House Stalking, revisited

I received an interesting call today.  When I first came here, one of my first blog posts was about a phenomenon I called "House Stalking."  Original post may be found here http://activerain.com/blogsview/123630/House-stalking.  Well, today I had a call from a reporter with the New York Times that is doing a story on this.  No, he didn't get the idea from me... I'm kind of relieved about that, too.  But, apparently there are a bunch of us that have our eyes open for specific houses.

He promised to keep me updated on the progress of his article.  

BTW, he found the blog from a Google search... so, we're on the map.

The family just got back from a visit to New Orleans. We stayed in a rental condo just outside of the French Quarter, near Decatur and Frenchmen streets. It was a great place to stay. We spent the majority of our time in the French Quarter. We… more

Every time I see one, it reminds me of one of those hospital gowns that your butt hangs out of. Three sides are fine, but that fourth side just isn't making it. What am I talking about? Three sides brick homes. I like brick. My house is… more
A garage is a garage is a garage… NOT!

Garages are a specialty. Oddly, after deciding that I really wanted to focus on fellow gear heads, I find that there is more of a need than I thought. Personally, the garage has always been one of the first places I went to when looking at a house… more
One Improvement too many?

I was out showing a house to a contractor for a buyer today. As they toured the house and sized it up for renovations, we spent a lot of time chatting about the market, strategies for prospering, and building wealth through real estate. While I'm… more
To HOA or not to HOA? That is the question!

That is the question! HOA, or Home Owner's Associations are the subject of some debate. They are either a useful body to help maintain the value of homes within the subjected neighborhood, or they are a bunch of nosy, busy-bodies that need to… more

I had a new experience today. Not that I am new to real estate, but I just hadn't had the occasion to hang out for one of these. I attended an eviction. The clean-out crew, locksmith and Sheriff's Deputy we all scheduled to arrive at 1:00. I got… more

As promised, I wanted to delve a little deeper into this subject. The first thing we need to get out of the way is the "Myth of 6%". Since the VAST majority of sellers that are going unrepresented (FSBOs) offer to pay 3% to a… more

Not too long ago, I had a friend and client tell me that he and his wife were "stalking" a house. Around the corner, in the same subdivision they were in was a house that they loved. In their case, they were friends with the owners,… more
