Per square foot, real estate in Manhattan is the most expensive in the United States, with the average property in the borough eclipsing all other locals.

Still, a billion dollars is what the owners of the 157 acres perched between Benedict and Franklin canyons say they want, and they are not in the mood for discounts. At least in theory, the listing – known variously as the Vineyard or the Mountain – is an invitation to the ultimate gazillionaire to build his or her palace of dreams above a city famously built on them..."

Price growth is cooling down, sales have slowed, and the industry’s biggest trade group in town is dialing back expectations that prices will reach their pre-recession peak this year. By all indications, Las Vegas is still a seller’s market and not undergoing a wrenching change, and prices continue to rise faster than the national average. But collectively, the shifts could give buyers some relief. Southern Nevada home prices have been rising at one of the fastest clips in the country this year amid low availability and strong demand. Things have been so heated that Fitch Ratings in June deemed Las Vegas the most overvalued market in the nation..."
offrs Review: Issues, problems and chicken nuggets

offrs Review: Issues, problems and chicken nuggets

Today, we look at the daily issues you face. From no-show clients to kiddie car pools gone-amock. We'll quickly explore a few tips designed to help you breathe and focus in on your real estate business. Let's review...

As seen on Topix.com...

 

You’ve just had a buyer back out from a sure deal, your seller wants an update and your kids are playing ping pong with their chicken nuggets in the back seat. Welcome to Tuesday. It’s going to be a long one… you’ve somehow deduced this (maybe you are psychic after all… something to ponder later).

For now, you’ve got bitniz to attend to. Bad news is, there’s only one way off this ride and that’s through it. First, take a deep breath. And really give yourself the freedom to enjoy this moment (it won’t last long). The good news is that while this may be the calm before the storm… you’re the storm.

Remember that not everything is a problem and that most of the things floating around you are simply annoyances (as persistent as high-velocity, processed meat may be). Prioritize real issues that you can address quickly and release any and all distractions posing as problems.

Sometimes it helps to allow yourself 3 things that you will get done and to release all others until tomorrow - it's okay as long as you get the three things done. Consider any items that you can delegate and try to make that happen. There was a great TED talk on this very topic, but for the life of our research team, we cannot seem to find it again. Breathe, acknowledge and pounce.

Hey, on the business side of the equation, why not cull down all those bogus leads? With offrs, the premier real estate lead generator, you can turn 2,500 residential contacts in your farm (aka "the heap of work ahead") into 20 hot leads that are most likely to list here soon!

 

offrs Reviews are little snippets of humble insight from the staff here at offrs. We’ve seen it all (or nearly so) and while we bow to the wisdom of coaches who help you be better at what you do, we hope these Best Practice reviews (cute anecdotal tips, really) will make your coffee a little warmer some mornings.
