A Bad Inspection Report

February 21st, 2013

This is why I send every listing Realtor a copy of a negative inspection report on a property, where my buyer elects not to remove subject conditions. It puts the listing Realtor on notice and requires him to ensure disclosure of issues or defects or suffer the consequences of a potential damage claim from the next buyer who acutally completes.

When a buyer ...

Richmond Real Estate Market Report

February 19th, 2013
In the last 7 days in Richmond, there have been 189 new property listings and 67 sales.  This 35% sales to new listings ratio is a much healthier absorption rate than what I have reported on in previous postings to this blog over the past 6 months. However, as can be seen by the last table at the bottom of this post, viewed against the total market inventory, the rebalancing task is going to ...

Richmond Real Estate Market Report: Price Pressure By Area

February 14th, 2013
Today I am going to briefly examine another metric I use in negotiation, but on a macro level.  There has been a great deal of discussion in blogs and forums around the issue of the seller's requirement to sell.  "Sure, the property is listed, but they don't really need to sell," has been bandied about for the last few months.  

Well I am going to go out on a limb here and suggest that for mo ...

For Sale: 1% of Richmond-$55,000,000

February 12th, 2013
A large rectangular parcel of land comprised of 10 legal titles totaling 324.5 acres with 800 feet of waterfront is now listed for sale. Seems like a steal at $169,491/acre.  The trouble is, the land is in the Agricultural Land Reserve and therefore the development options are quite limited. Development applications have a checkered past here and the property will quite likely be a long term ...
