Holidays! – Best Time To Sell Property!

Friday, July 24th, 2015

Do you know why the holidays is the BEST time to list real estate for sale or for rent?

Because it is a very slow time and there are fewer offers coming in, a lot of Sellers will wait till After the holidays to list.

By Listing now, here are the benefits:

Less competition = Not having to negotiate downwards to compete for Buyers!

Less competition = Lower Supply.

Lower Supply means Higher Demand!

Higher Demand = More $$$ for sellers that take the initiative with a Strong, Powerful, Seasoned real estate agent!


“Luxury Condominium’s Redefined” – Wall Street Journal!

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015


When I started selling Condominiums 18 years ago, having white tile floor and white kitchen cabinets put you in the lead. Imagine!

Marble floors, granite counter tops and ten foot ceilings soon followed. Evolving into Sub Zero & Miele kitchen appliances with the defining element status symbols being the Miele cappuccino machine, ten foot wide terraces and back lit onyx counter tops.

But this Friday I read an article in the Wall Street Journal confirming the latest luxury, something I’ve been trying to get permits to do in my building for the last five years: terrace swimming pools!

I first saw this idea on a condo in Puerto Vallarta Mexico that a client of mine asked me to sell for him!

It was beautiful! One could walk outside of ones condo, dip into the pool, swim to the edge overlooking the Gulf Of Mexico and take in all of G-ds Wonders while sipping on a Pina Colada!

Actually, it reminded me of “The Las Brisas Hotel” in Acapulco that had the same set-up!

It’s really an easy thing to do, and shouldn’t require any special permits. It’s run on recirculating water, so plumbing isn’t necessary!

One must get an inspection done from an Engineer verifying that the terrace can support the weight, but a small two person jacuzzi shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Price: ……………………………………… Reasonable Cost.
Return on Investment: ……………… One should Easily Double ones Investment!
Enjoyment……………………………….. Priceless!

You Never Know!

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

Recently, I was working with a buyer that wanted to buy a condo in a particular building.


We prepared an OTP (Offer To Purchase) for unit #01.


What’s interesting is that the building owns unit #02, right next to this unit. It seems that when this building was originally built, unit #02 was supposed to be for the building manager to use, as part of compensation.


The present building manager has his own apartment, so the building has been renting out the condo.


I called the building manager to ask if this condo were for sale. He told me ‘no’.


That not withstanding, I prepared another OTP for #02 and sent it the buildings manager and to the board of directors.


Well, believe it or not, the building responded with a counter-offer!


We are still negotiating, but now instead of helping the buyer acquire one unit, at a Fantastic Price I might add, we are narrowing down on two units!


If we can accomplish this, my buyer will have several wonderful options!


1.     He can stay with one, and flip the other for a profit!

2.    He can stay with both and rent out the second unit!

3.    He can combine both units into one unit!


Either way, everyone is a winner!
