Why Spokane is the Place to Live

Holy Moly-I just treated myself to my once in a year vacation in Las Angeles and cannot believe how good it is to be back to Spokane!!!

Don't get me wrong-memories are monetarily driven sometimes, but I had to pay $64 to park my car for 2 nights. A bottle of water at the Santa Monica Pier is $4 (there is 6 of us and Heaven forbid the children share). This could get ugly for a long-term stay. Good thing it's only 7 days. 

My work followed me to LA only when I started noticing the difference in the homes compared to Spokane. 

I didn't see my traditional "For Sale" sign for the longest time. I had to dig to see what was available, and since curiosity kills the cat-I'm one less life today. There were over 800 Single family homes available, I saw about 5 signs my entire trip.

The first sign I saw was for a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home within walking distance to the beach for $485,000. Score right? It was an 822 square foot condo with dues of $622 a month for water and ex ...

Should You Sell Your Current Home Before You Buy a New One?

Should you sell your current home before buying a new one here in Spokane, WA? Here are the upsides and downsides.


If you choose to sell your home first you'll know exactly what your budget is and you'll feel less uncertain about the outcome...Let's dive in;




The upsides of selling before you find a new home:



Buying with a set budget: 
You know exactly how much money you have to buy with.
Financing is simple: 
Use the cash from your sale as a huge down payment and borrow the rest from a mortgage company.
Reduced the pressure: 
You can take your time searching for the perfect home 



Downfalls:
Missing out on your dream home:
Let's say your dream home pops up on the market you could potentially miss out because your current home has not sold and the sellers of your dream home will not accept a contingent offer. 
Renting: This is huge, most rental companies in Spokane do not offer month to month leases. So here you are stuck in ...

What Is The First Step Of The Home Selling Process?

What is the first step of the home selling process? 



You've made the decision to sell your home. Now what? I am sure you have so many thoughts rolling around in your head that you aren't clear on which direction to head. Below I have listed out three steps to take to ensure you feel confident. 



1. Find a Realtor-
When you reach out to a Realtor they will be thrilled to take over the stress you are feeling and help you sort out any doubts or questions you have. Let's say you choose me (thanks, I owe ya one) I will set up a time to take a tour of your home. I will then head back to my office at Haven Real Estate and create a CMA (current market analysis). This report consists of 5 active listings within a few blocks of your home, 5 pending listing, and 5 sold listings that have sold in the last 6 months in your area. At that time we will go over pricing and agree upon a list price. We will weigh different factors like how many bedrooms, square feet, lot size, and ...

6 Reasons Why I Fell in Love With Real Estate

We can’t help who we fall in love with, and even more frustratingly, who falls in love with us. It’s simply one of life’s mysteries. And we might not know exactly why we fell in love with real estate, but we probably have our suspicions. Here are six reasons why I fell in love with real estate:


1. The people


You have to enjoy working with people in order to be a successful real estate agent. Coworkers, clients, baristas who recognize you as you bring in a gallon-sized travel mug for your daily caffeine dose — you’re always around people. It would be dishonest to say that it always goes smoothly, but the relationships and interactions are a huge part of the overall experience, and allow you to connect with people in a way you don’t get to in many other careers.


2. No two days are ever the same


If the drudgery of five days a week at the same office, with the same snack machine, and the same coworkers telling the same lame jokes kill ...

Selling your home with a Team of agents verses a single agent.

Selling your home with a Team of agents verses a single agent.
When I’m busy showing homes or in a business meeting or on a phone conference, I can’t answer my phone. So, what happens if someone is calling to inquire about my listing? That call would be missed. That doesn’t happen with Haven Real Estate Group. We have a system in place that when a call comes in, it is routed to at least 16 on our team. That call is always answered.
Answering the phone is critical. Consumers looking at homes quickly move onto other homes when they can’t reach an agent. I’m sure if you have your home listed for sale on the market you would want every inquiry answered and answered right away.
Here are some statistics. If a call is answered you have over a 90% probability of setting an appointment to show that home.  If the call is missed and you return the call within 10 minutes that chance to set an appointment drops to 79.6 %. Within 30 minutes it drops to 12.9 %. ...
