Tampa Real Estate Market – Statistics for March 2014


 

Hi everybody. It’s Lance Mohr. Just wanted to go over the Tampa real estate market statistics for March.

Looks like we had a good month in March, which is normal. March is always a really good month in the Tampa real estate market. If you’re looking in Land O Lakes or Wesley Chapel, I would definitely look at the Hillsborough County and pay more attention to these statistics than Pasco – if I pull the Pasco statistics, they’re not nearly as good. Because most of the areas on Pasco, or a good majority of them, are much slower and… Continue reading

Home Seller Tips and Advice

Hi, my name is Lance Mohr and I am a real estate agent in the Tampa Bay area, and I want to give a couple of tips to home sellers.

Number one is to start off when you are hiring a real estate agent please do your due diligence.  I talk to sellers all of the time and I would say at least 50-75% of them never use the real estate agent that they bought the home through because they were upset for one reason or another.

The 93-7 Rule of Real Estate

Picking the best realtor by Depositphotos_19348085It sounds like a punch line, but it’s the truth: it turns out 93% of real estate agents really are making the rest of us look bad.

Most people have heard of the 80-20 rule — that 80% of the work is usually done by 20% of the workers. In real estate, it’s (amazingly) more like the 93-7 rule: 7% of all agents are doing 93% of the sales.

That means fewer than one in ten are real “producers” in the business; the rest are just coasting along.

Do you want one of the 93% as your agent?

It amazes… Continue reading
