Branch Agent Meetings November 5, 2013

Moreland Sales Meeting 11.5.2013

They call him ‘Flipper’! In most parts of the US, because of the market cycle we’ve been in for the past 6+ years, house flipping isn’t playing much of a part in the real estate market…… However in Portland, it IS. Check it out:

Want your next vacation stay to be in a palatial estate? This is a pretty nifty website that connects ‘discerning’ vacationers with amazing properties.

I didn’t know you could sell a SPITE house, however this IS the NW! – A 1925 830 square foot house shaped like a slice of pie? Would YOU pay almost $400K? It’s Pending!

We’ve seen a lot of cash sales in our office! In Portland, 30% of the sales are all cash. Many of these are investors, but certainly not all. It sure helps (if you’re the one with the cash) in multiple offer situations!
