Interest-only deals represented 17.1 percent of the mortgage refinancings last year as well, up from 10 percent in 2004."

You really need to get this blog some more visitors!

People at the Jersey Shore are still under the impression that "the market is not going to fall here - no, not here" Huge denial going on.

what's "Huge denial" if you think your home is worth 1 Million and you list it at that and no one buys it ,it's still worth a million to you ,so you just don't sell !

If I spent as much time working on my own real estate sites as I do slogging thru blogging, I'd probably make more money. But I enjoy a good read. Thanks for the break. Stop by my site if you can.

In this "cooling off" real estate market, suggest that the average residence is shown about 4 times a week during the first 3 weeks of a real estate listing. After that, an unsold home goes "stale" ... it gets shown less .

. Be It Ever So Humble: Never apologize for the appearance of your home. After all, it has been lived in. Let the trained agent answer any objections. That's the job of your Realtor�.

. Never Stay In Your House With House Hunters: Let the agent handle it, and remove yourself if possible. Remember that the Realtor� has worked many hours with these people, and knows what they're looking for, and how to work with them. Let the Realtor� do the job without interference.You may feel that an agent isn't showing the important features of your home to the prospect, but the agent knows people aren't sold by details until they've become emotionally involved with the "big picture" of your home. The presence of any member of the seller's family can't help. It always unnerves possible buyers. It often prevents a sale.
