Bidding Wars Are Back:To the Suprise of Homebuyers - Click link for article: Buyers may find themselves caught off guard when making an offer on their dream home...a bidding war ! Something we haven't seen in several years, is back! But not to the extremes that existed in the housing boom. Despite what you may think sales are on the rise, and inventory isn't as high as one may think.

We don't advise over-paying, but it is our job to alert you that you may find yourself in a multiple-offer situation that will require you to present your highest and best offer, if you really want that investment or dream home, especially with the "bank owned" owned properties on the market today.

"Competitive bidding in the current environment isn't producing huge price increases or leaving sellers with hefty profits, as occurred during the housing boom. Still, the bidding wars caused by tight inventory provide the latest evidence that housing demand is starting to pick up after a six-year-long slump.

An index that measures the number of contracts signed to purchase previously owned homes rose in March to its highest level in nearly two years, up 12.8% from a year ago and 4.1% from February, the National Association of Realtors reported on Thursday."

Real Estate Myth: It's cheaper to list FSBO than with a Realtor.
Fact: Homes sell faster being exposed to the active market and qualified buyers that Realtors have access to. Costing you less, because you have a faster home sale!

All real estate search engines are not created equal

Do you know that not all real estate search sites are created equal? Did you know that many sites out there feed from multiple sites so they frequently carry listings that have been sold over a year ago, or have innacurate data, such as square footage, # of bdrms, baths, etc. The beauty of searching the LIVE MLS, as you can do on Team Dolch's site http://www.teamdolch.com/, is that you are getting live information, The system updates nearly immediately once a change by the listing office has been made. Not to mention you get access to ALL listings on the ACTIVE market from any real estate company that is part of our mls, not just our listings!
So log on today and create a user-friendly account that allows you to search properties within your price range and location of interest or simply keep tabs on what is happening in your neighborhoods market!
Happy Searching!

Mad City Money



Today Team Dolch and 3PM Property Management teamed up at Mad City Money at Rhinelander High School for the Junior class. Mad City Money is a program that teaches teenagers financial responsibility through simulated real life situations. All the students were given a monthly income. They then had to purchase a home or rent a home, insurance, vehicles, contribute to a 401k, pay childcare expenses and more.
It was a fantastic experience for us, as well as the kids. We felt that the teens really got an idea of the costs of living in the real world. Many kids in fact, came back and had to re-purchase or re-rent homes that were more within their budget after finding out the REAL cost of some of the necessities in life.
As always we love to participate in any program that helps the community and especially its children. We can’t wait for next year!

Why selling your home FSBO can be a mistake

Most sellers set out selling their home For Sale By Owner with the desire to save money. What generally isn’t taken into consideration it the professional marketing, financial investment, negotiating skills, and real estate education that are necessary to get a property sold.
These are the Top 5 Reasons why selling FSBO is not a viable idea for the average homeowner:
1)      FSBO cannot list the home on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) that is used by Realtors.
2)      Most buyers agents will not show FSBO, they prefer to sell listings that are in the MLS.
3)      Most homeowners over price their home.
4)      Sellers are emotionally attached to their home.
5)      Selling FSBO can bring on unwanted legal problems.
If you are thinking of listing your home, I would love the opportunity to give you a Free Comparative Market Analysis and discuss what marketing is available to you with Team Dolch.
Please call today (715) 365-6008!

What is a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis)?

A "CMA" is a comparative market analysis.  It is used by licensed real estate brokers, and agents to guide homeowners to a true and reasonable estimate of their homes estimated value in the market. Most CMA's are done as a courtesy by brokers to prospective sellers prior to listing a home for sale on the market.  A CMA shows current comparable listings and comparable expired listings.

And such items as:
- What has sold (determine why, how long, what for, etc.)
- What didn't sell...expired or canceled listings (try to determine why they didn't sell)
- What your competition is, condition of the homes, how they are priced, and how long they've been on the market (so you get an offer first!)
Obtaining a free Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is the first step in our getting your home on the market. If you would like a free CMA, please contact me at (715) 365-6010 at any time!

Pricing Your Home Right…The First Time

I don’t believe there is a homeowner out there that doesn’t want to list their home for more than what they have invested in it. Today’s market just doesn’t work on that type of strategy. But here are six great strategies for pricing your home appropriately:
Here are six strategies to help you figure out how much your home is worth:
1. Abandon your personal point of view.
2. Get a couple of CMAs.
3. Do your own market research.
4. Calculate the price per square foot.
5. Consider market conditions.
6. Sweeten the transaction terms.
If you are interested in a free CMA on your home, please contact me today at (715) 365-6008.
