Treat Your Seller Right…Show the House.

It is always in your seller’s best interest to show their property to prospective buyers. No matter what. If you are asked by a buyer’s broker to show the house in their stead, show it. Even if that buyer’s broker is basking in the hot Hawaiian sun, show it. No, you won’t gain a buy-side […]

Shutdown vs. Bandon Real Estate

Every Bandon real estate agent has a tale of how the U.S. Government shutdown has affected their business.  From government-backed mortgages stalling to a loss of buyer confidence, the damage has happened and is still happening.
