Staging REALLY, REALLY does make a difference in how quickly the home sells and for what price.

Staging is just so darn appealing to buyers–it is eye-candy and can make every home look delicious!

I was searching the MLS for Bank Owned properties for sale in Kirkland, Washington and came across a true screaming deal.

 It isn’t bank owned but even better. (Bank-owned’s are now pulling multiple offers and the prices are negotiated up.)

 

It is a 3 Bedroom 1.75 Bath, with large square footage.

Great location in Kirkland.

An older home, but well maintained.

I’ve spoken with the listing agent and I’m confident, as your buyer’s agent that we could negotiate this home for you between $260-$280K.  AND at either end of that it will be a screaming deal.

 I’ve attached a Payment Estimation for a FHA purchase. http://www.box.net/shared/9qrjh3d58o4oc6mbscpf

  (Remember, it is just an estimation. Please contact a reputable lender. Kimberly Buttle is someone I work with that I really trust.

Kimberly  is extremely respectful and helpful if you need your credit score boosted or have any credit issues and she can help you get them corrected quickly. Please don’t hesitate to contact her. She will take exquisite care of you. I promise. Kimberly Buttle 206-799-0422 [k.buttle@comcast.net]

If not you, do you know someone who is wanting to buy their first home or an investor wanting a great investment.

Email me and I’ll send you a link. And I can show it to you today. It won’t last long (and this isn’t just a come-on—all the real deals go fast because they are easily recognizable).

  

Warmest, Julie

http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_baraniuk_on_open_source_learning.html

Rice University professor Richard Baraniuk explains the vision behind Connexions, his open-source, online education system. It cuts out the textbook, allowing teachers to share and modify course materials freely, anywhere in the world.

I really hope this goes BIG.

We need to break away from our dependency on the BIG BOX Universities–with BIG $$ Price Tags. We need to capture the brilliance of each person by generating pathways for everyone who wants to learn.

Warmest, Julie

Stress Chemical Epinephrine JULIE HUTTON COM

SELF-CARE: Managing Your Emotions

Negotiations deal with rapid-fire change, chaos and uncertainty.

Negotiating for your clients produces a sense of responsibility in most agents/brokers for a successful outcome for your clients.

You KNOW how much they want to buy or sell their home. You want to help them be successful in this process.

Buying and selling a home is one of the highest stressful events for people to deal with. And it often represents their largest personal investment. This is high-stakes for your clients even if it more routine for you.

This can easily produce, in yourself and in your clients, feelings of high anxiety, worry, doubt and outright fear and, with that, often comes anger.

These emotions (fight or flight) have been proven by scientists to cause ‘stress chemicals’ to be produced in your body.

‘Stress chemicals’ released by the adrenal gland, cortisol and epinephrine, can, over time, suppress your immune system and put you at higher-risk for:

  • cancer,
  • heart disease,
  • osteoporosis
  • and lower your defenses against opportunistic illnesses.

 

(Think about it, how many agent/brokers do you know that have been diagnosed with cancer?)

This economic downturn has added additional anxiety and worry around financial security for many people, agents included.

So what can we do to HELP our clients and ourselves?

1. Constant communication with your client

  1. Keep them apprised of every move. People get anxious when they don’t know what is going on.
  2. Advise and educate about the options and possible outcomes, BUT make sure they are making the decisions. After all, it is their money, their home.

2. Manage your emotions with a HIGH DEGREE of professional detachment

  1. You need to come from a place of emotional ‘neutrality’ to all outrageous demands from your counterpart *
  2. While simultaneously holding a sense of positive expectation for a successful outcome
  3. AND doing everything within your power to create a favorable outcome.

3. Your emotions and communications set the tone for your clients.

  1. If you’re angry, they’ll be angry.
  2. If you’re worried, they’ll be worried.
  3. If you’re relaxed, they’ll be relaxed.

*If you are experiencing high anxiety during negotiations, seek out training and or counseling on stress reduction and cognitive (thinking) flexibility. Your life depends on it.

Hope this has been helpful!

NEGOTIATION MASTERY TIP Vultures Respect & Dignity JULIE HUTTON

Always treat your counterparts with DIGNITY AND RESPECT.

 

Be mindful that you may be buying from a financially distressed seller.

Sellers’ equities has been ravaged by this economic downturn (read depression).

I recently researched a property that sold for $499,000 in 2005 and only $415,000 in 2010. This family lost OVER $85,000 (plus selling costs & taxes).

Yes, there are uncaring, greedy vultures out there. But most regular (non-investor) buyers are quite sensitive to the losses of the seller and are sympathetic and compassionate while still wanting to secure a good sale price.

When some people say, “It’s just business,” what they mean is it is an excuse to be greedy, rude, unethical and sometimes just plain mean-spirited.

So… YES, always firmly and persistently go for the best deal for your client while treating your negotiating counterparts with dignity and respect.

 

Hope this has been helpful!
