I got an email from RI Association of Realtors today. The state of the market in RI is improving, as home sales are up 19% from December 201 to December 2011. They also explain the conditions of increased affordability that we are experiencing. I have pasted the whole article below for you to review.
Somewhere along the line, HGTV's House Hunters heard about WeLoveLofts.com. I got an email from the casting director last week about submitting a loft buyer to the show.
I've started the process with one of our clients, but this opportunity will also be open to other buyers. The contact told me that they often have repeat appearances from realtors that work with interesting clients and interesting properties (that sure sounds like us!). I have included her list of criteria below, in case anyone is interested in participating as they go through the process of finding a home that they love.
So I got an email from someone that I showed a loft to in March of 2009. Alacyn Wolfe wanted to work as a realtor and already knew that she loved LOFTS. I was so impressed with Allie's letter that I hired her as a part time assistant. On Allie's first day, I had her reaching out to clients that I had not talked to for some time. One of emails that she sent ended up turning into a Purchase & Sale for Unit 207 in Lofts at the Strand. I've included Allie's letter below, in case you were wondering what it looks like to take a chance on something that you want in life.
Lastly, I am identifying an amazing opportunity to those that are sitting on the sideline. Unit 405 is now listed (by another realtor) for $200K. This is the loft directly above the unit that I flipped last year. It has high celings and brick walls and huge windows, the list goes on and on. The owner has decided that he is going down swinging, so he has removed the kitchen, the appliances and some of the bath fixtures. In effect, you can buy what I bought last year, with the plumbing in place for 2.5 baths, on a higher floor, with a master suite built out. As this is clearly a short sale, the seller is interested in offers and I'm interested in bringing one from one of my buyers. I've created a link to the full listing of the LOFT with 15 pictures below.
I've been advised that my websites do not have a clear "Call to Action". In other words, they are not clear on what I do and what I offer. So let's be clear, I'm a realtor and I want to either help you find a home that you love, or help you sell the home that you own for highest value in the shortest period of time. That's who I am
and that's why I'm here. It's a really good gig, and I love it.
