Moreland Branch Meeting 10.27.2015

Treating all people with dignity, respect and equality is the Windermere (Moreland) Way

For your Blog:

Countertops can be a BIG deal  – Here are five – I didn’t even know about lava! Mon Dieu!

Where ARE all these homes that are selling?  Here are the top 25 zip codes (how many zip codes do we HAVE in the tri-county anyway?) for most homes sold. We do note that 97202 would more than likely have MORE sales, if we had more listings.

Don’t think this will be on a multiple listing sheet soon.  Here’s the old entrepreneurial ‘spirit’ for you. A website that asks the question ‘who died in your house?’

Transaction Master:  To Buyer – ‘We’re in competition whether there’s another offer on the table or not.’

·         So only one buyer and not the spouse signs an addendum. Is it binding?? ATTACHED NOTE: The article says a judge would probably say yes….. NOT where we want our clients. So continue with ALL signatures as the rule.

·        What ‘cha talking about when you’re going around a home with a buyer? Careful! We’ve been having ‘Nanny Cam’ situations. Council your clients to not say anything derogatory in a home. What if a buyer said ‘these people are pigs! However, I like the home, let’s write an offer’, and the sellers heard it? I’m thinking the buyers harmed their negotiations.  

·        Adult Abuse – Gypsies, Stress and Loneliness – OK< I was corrected, and I apologize. The teacher of the class was emphatic that ‘gypsies’ wasn’t an ethnic group – but it is. I promise not to generalize and disparage all the Romani from now on.
