Is Your Property the Pinball Listing??

Thursday, August 23, 2012 posted by Tommi Crow

   What is a Pinball Listing?

A pinball listing is a house that is listed for an unrealistic asking price.  It pulls in a lot of showings by agents and home shoppers, but receives no offers.  Real estate agents, including the listing agent for the home, use the overpriced house as a negative example to sell similar homes that are listed for lower prices.

Any pinball listing is basically a set up.  Listing agents show clients these homes to make realistically price homes look like fantastic deals, which is why the traffic for pinballs is high…but no sale will ever take place until the price is drastically reduced. 

What Happens to the Pinball Listed Home?   Unless it is being used by Realtors as a set up…they stop showing it until the seller agrees to reprice it at a realistic number.

Is it Ethical for a Broker to Accept a Pinball Listing?   NO!  It is not ethical to list a property at a price that an agents knows it will not sell.  If they do, they are intentionally misleading the seller.  Do agents list unrealistically priced houses to use as a set up, anyway?  YES, all day long.

How to Protect Yourself?  Interview several real estate agents before signing any listing agreement.  Get as much information as you can about CLOSED sales prices of comparable homes in your neighborhood.   If you are inclined, you can always push a little on the listing price, but if you get greedy, or try to go overboard…you may unknowingly become the set up, pinball, out of touch with the competition listing…that everyone loves to visit, but no one will buy.

Curb Appeal is the general attractiveness of a house or other piece of property from the sidewalk. 

Why is Curb Appeal so Important when Selling Your Home?  Curb Appeal is crucial  because it is what motivates a Buyer to look inside.  If the house turns them off at the curb…they won’t get out of the car and come in.  Thus, you have no chance to sell them on the property. 

Take this property for example…nothing about it stands out…nothing about it is welcoming…nothing about it motivates me to want to see more.

There are many things that can increase the curb appeal of a piece of property.   A new paint job, landscaping and siding can go a long way towards accomplishing this.   Though not as easily measured as something like square footage, curb appeal plays an important role in property valuation.  In the case of this home…the seller greatly improved the curb appeal by changing out a boring, unattractive garage door.

In this case…the seller greatly improved the appearance of this home by spraying mold off the roof.

Showings on this home nearly doubled after the seller painted the front door a contrasting color and added seasonal flowers in front flower bed. 
This homeowner did a fantastic job of covering up old ugly brick by adding wood slats..and magically made old dated windows look cool again with some trim paint. 
The real estate market has gotten hot from south Florida to California and all the stops in between.  If you aren’t getting showings, you need to step back and take a close look at the impression your home makes from the street.  Buyers will look inside a home that is slightly overpriced…but they will not consider a home that doesn’t speak to them.

How to Speed Up a Home Closing

Tuesday, May 8, 2012 posted by Tommi Crow

Some home-sale transactions close quickly, while others can take months. Two significant factors that affect most home sales are inspections of the property and financing the purchase.

Inspections should be done within the first couple of weeks after the offer is ratified, i.e., accepted by both buyer and seller. Usually, the day after ratification is day one of the contingency and closing time periods. This may vary from one location to the next.

When transactions fall apart soon after ratification, the cause is usually something discovered during the buyer’s inspections. It’s a good idea for sellers to get presale inspection reports so that the buyers have as much information about the property as possible before they make an offer.

Most home inspection reports make recommendations to consult other specialists such as a roofer, furnace contractor, drainage specialist or engineer. Few sellers have these additional inspections done. Even if they do, the buyers might want a second opinion.

Inspections are also somewhat subjective. One inspector might say a roof needs to be replaced; another might say it has a few years of life left as long as it is properly maintained. Transactions fall apart because the buyer and seller can’t come to an agreement on inspections, which means the sale doesn’t close, the house goes back on the market and the buyers renew their home search.

If the inspection issues are worked out satisfactorily, the next major hurdle that could delay your sale, or crater it, is the loan contingency. Cash buyers bypass this rigorous process; however, they do need to provide the sellers with evidence that they have sufficient liquid funds to close the sale.

All-cash deals can close whenever the buyers and sellers agree, after all inspection issues are resolved. Closing can occur in a week or two. Some all-cash buyers include an appraisal contingency in their contract to confirm that they’re not paying over market value.

In this case, it would take longer to close because an appraiser would need to visit the property and work up an appraisal report. If the property didn’t appraise for the purchase price, the buyer might be able to back out and have the deposit returned.

Both buyer and seller would start all over again. However, if they negotiated a resolution, the sale could close quickly and would take far less time than it does to close a sale involving a mortgage.

HOUSE HUNTING TIP: Purchase contracts include contingencies and time periods for them to be met. To avoid having to ask for extensions, make sure that the time periods you request are reasonable. An extension might not be granted if the seller has a backup offer for a higher price.

Buyers should get preapproved for the financing they need to close a home sale before their offer is accepted. This way, they are assured of what they can afford to pay. Preapproval can cut a few days off the loan approval process.

Loan approval can go relatively quickly if you present all required documentation promptly and your financial situation is not complicated. It can be more time consuming for buyers who are self-employed or are using other than W-2 income to qualify.

Part of loan approval involves an appraisal on the property by a licensed appraiser. This can slow the process down depending on the lender, how backlogged they are and the loan amount. A large loan amount can prompt the need for two appraisals, which adds more time to the approval process.

THE CLOSING: If you’re buying in an area where homes are selling quickly, it may take 35 to 45 days from contract acceptance for final loan approval and closing.

If you are one of the millions of Americans who would love to take advantage of record low home prices and record high levels of foreclosures, but your cash on hand is coming up  little short… consider using a portion of your IRA funds to buy a piece of rental property.

Millions of Americans have billions of dollars tied up in IRA’s that nay be paying little to no interest or gains to investors.  Maybe it’s time you considered diversifing from stocks or mutual funds… and add some tempting real estate bargains into the mix.

Here are the basic rules:

  • The funds used to buy the property must be held in a self directed IRA.  You can not use 401K funds or Roth IRA’s to buy real estate, but you can roll over those funds into an IRA before you buy.
  •  The property you buy must be an investment property.   You can not buy a second home or primary residence with IRA funds without paying a penalty.
  • You must pay cash for the investment property.  You can not borrow or take out a mortgage against your IRA investments.  
  • Monthly rental income must be placed back into the IRA account.
  • When the property is Sold…the sale proceeds must be deposited back into the IRA.
  • No taxes are due on rental income or capital gains held in the IRA, until the money is withdrawn at retirement age, so earnings grow tax free.
  • The IRA can pay all expenses associated managing and maintaining the property.
  • You can use a property manager or manage it yourself.

Real Estate IRA

Here is a simple example of how the investment could grow and fund your retirement.

  • You buy a $100,000 rental property with IRA funds.
  • You collect $10,000 a year in rent that is paid directly back into the IRA. 
  • After 10 years, the entire $100,000 you invested in the home has been paid back into the IRA.  Bonus, you still own the property and you can sell it anytime you chose and put the proceeds into your account, too.
  • You pay NO TAXES on income or capital gains until you withdraw money from the IRA.

Tax deferred gains

Buying a foreclosure with IRA money can be a great way to diversify your retirement portfolio and take advantage of historically cheap real estate prices and highly motivated sellers.  As with any tax related investment…ALWAYS consult your tax expert before investing.

  A recent survey of hundreds of real estate agents uncovers the reasons some homes sell….and others languish on the market. 

Agents say that the majority of home sellers have gotten more “real” about their real estate in 2012.  More than half (51%) of sellers are willing to price their homes more competitively this year vs last.   And, nearly half (45%) are more willing to change the appearance of their homes to appeal to and entice buyers.   

What is the best use of a seller’s time and money?  De-clutter, de-personalize to make their home appeal to the broadest cross-section of potential buyers.

  • 94% of sellers are getting rid of clutter and making cosmetic updates.
  • 78% are willing to “de-personalize” their homes.
  • 59% are bringing in new home decorations or furniture to make their home updated and appealing.

De-personalizing and de-cluttering a home makes it easier for a buyer to imagine him or herself living in the property.   In order to sell your home in today’s competitive marketplace, it is crucial for seller’s to realize that the property is no longer their “home”…it is an expensive product that is For Sale.        

Always remove family photo’s and personal artwork.  They do nothing for the appeal of the home.  They simply distract a buyers focus and perhaps give the buyer too much information about the seller’s personal life.  Never good.

Christmas 2011 — Birth of a New Traditions the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods — merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. 

Make this year different.  Make it the year that Americans give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is!

It’s time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?
Everyone — yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?

Gym membership? It’s appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.

Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plonking down the Benjamines on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.

There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants — all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn’t the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this isn’t about big National chains — this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

How many people couldn’t use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?

Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day.

My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.

OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes.

Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre.

Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.

Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn’t imagine. THIS is the new American Christmas tradition.

Forward this to everyone on your mailing list — post it on Facebook and to discussion groups — throw up a post on Craigslist in the Rants and Raves section in your city — send it to the editor of your local paper and radio stations, and TV news departments. This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isn’t that what Christmas is about?

New York City Man Hole Covers Made in India?

Wednesday, November 2, 2011 posted by Tommi Crow

This photo, sent by an InfoTube customer, perfectly illustrates the reason that the United States is going down the drain.  

Does NYC know that Pittsburgh, PA is a steel town?  Does Mayor Bloomberg realize that tens of thousands of taxpayers in Pittsburgh are unemployed, many losing their homes?  Does the New York City purchasing department know that Pennsylvania is located right down the road from the state of New York?

If “they were cheap” is the answer…I don’t care how cheap Indian man hole covers are.  If they were FREE, US workers and taxpayers can’t afford them.

In addition…wasting oil to freight heavy man hole covers half way around the world is slap in the face to US families and business.  The economy has been crippled by $4.00 a gallon gasoline and the billions of dollars that have been borrowed to fight wars for oil! 

I say Enough!   We believe that Americans have to start producing what America buys.  It’s really that simple.

Made in America Update

Thursday, June 9, 2011 posted by Tommi Crow

Our discussions with The Hillman Group and our fight to save InfoTube, InfoBox and American jobs is still ongoing.   Our face-to-face meeting with senior management at Hillman is scheduled for next Wednesday, June  15th.  We hope to have “Good News” to share!!! 

Please continue to Sign Our Petition to Save American Jobs .   We are approaching 600 signatures and the comments made by concerned Americans is powerful, enlightening and motivating.  

For those of you who fear things have gone too far with China.  For those who think that little people stand no chance of influencing big corporations.  For those who believe that the people in power don’t listen and don’t care …I have some encouraging news for you that disproves those fears.

The Smithsonian opened its Made in America gift shop yesterday and ABC News went shopping.   The US made products offered in the new store were just what you would expect to find, when looking for a souvenir to take home.    They looked no different than the previous products that were purchased from the Chinese and they didn’t cost anymore, either.

A manager for the Smithsonian was so happy with the results and consumer feedback, he said the store wants more Made in the USA products to put in the store.   Buyers for the Smithsonia will be attending Made in the US trade shows and they are asking  US businesses to contact them about their merchandise.

If you or your company make or manufacture a product that would fit the retail niche offered at the Smithsonian gift shop, click the link below and submit your goods to their buyers.    Think souveniers…T-shrits, earring, caps, hats, postcards, etc.  Wouldn’t it be cool to see your products at the Smithsonian?   I certainly wish I could find a reason for them to sell InfoTubes and InfoBoxes!!!

I was interviewed on Clear Channel News this morning about our Fight to Save our Company and American jobs from the chinese, copycat imports of InfoBox that are being brought into the US by The Hillman Group, distributors for Lowes, Home Depot and Menards.

After the radio interview, we received a call from Senator Richard Burr’s (R) office to inquire about our story.   The Senator’s office is looking into the matter to determine how they can help.   Thank you, Senator Burr!

Thanks for following our story and for your support!  Please continue to sign our petition and send emails to Lowes, Home Depot and Menardsn telling them that InfoTube and InfoBox SHOULD NOT be replaced with chinese imports.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

National Home Improvement Stores Outsource American Jobs to China                                                                                                                            Home Depot, Lowe’s vendor ignores U.S. patents, outsources popular INFOBOX®  

ASHEVILLE, North Carolina (May 10, 2011)—Recently, Hillman Group, vendor to national DIY home-improvement retail giants Lowe’s, Home Depot, and Menards, replaced the store’s popular American-made INFOTUBE® and INFOBOX® products with Chinese factory replicas. 

INFOTUBE® literature boxes were invented 23 years ago in a garage in Dallas, TX, to provide Realtors®, builders and homeowners with an affordable way to sell their homes. Today, millions of these patented real-estate literature boxes are being used in neighborhoods across America. 

In March, Hillman informed Crow Erickson it was replacing INFOTUBE® and INFOBOX® products effective immediately, leaving thousands of boxes stranded on the docks and effectively closing the doors of the Asheville, NC-based manufacturer and inventor. Caplugs® factory jobs in Erie, PA and Buffalo, NY will also be affected, two areas already hard hit in this economy. 

Crow Erickson’s patent attorney has inspected the Chinese product, currently available on Home Depot’s website, and it does appear to be copy of the INFOBOX® design, something Hillman insiders have conceded. The Chinese knockoff provides no cost savings to the consumer. 

This is not the first time Hillman has ignored U.S. patents and put American jobs in jeopardy, including the hundreds of disabled and handicapped American workers that Crow Erickson has employed at competitive wages in partnership with vocational rehabilitation centers.

 In the 1990s, Hillman tried to outsource INFOTUBE® products, a patent violation against which Crow Erickson took legal action. The settlement required Hillman to renew its contract for INFOTUBE® and agree not to compete in its product niche. 

Apparently Hillman is banking on the rising cost of lawsuits to deter the small, woman-owned business from pursuing legal remedy this time around. 

Crow Erickson has made numerous direct appeals to the Hillman Group and senior management at Lowe’s and Home Depot, citing its 20+ year successful partnership, patent concerns, and a desire to work with all parties for a mutually beneficial and cost-competitive resolution. 

To date, Crow Erickson has not been able to engage Hillman, Lowe’s or Home Depot in any meaningful discussion and has been left with no recourse other than pursue costly legal action or close its doors and watch another American-made product fall victim to Chinese factories. 

Crow Erickson is currently launching a public media campaign to save American jobs. More information can be found on www.infotube.net and the company’s blog. INFOTUBE® is also sponsoring an online petition to save American jobs from export to China which can be viewed and signed on The Petition Site at Help-Save-American-Jobs.

Yesterday, I shared the story of our fight to save our small, US company from obliteration with my small circle of friends, family and collegues.    Our news must have hit a nerve in a number of people because the number of  Facebook posts, emails and phone calls I have received in support of our situation has been nothing short of phenominal!  

I have 3 Things to Report to You, so far!

First, WE ARE STILL IN BUSINESS!!!    We have received a number of calls from concerned customers that we are no longer manufacturing product.  I am happy to report that we are still working and don’t intend to stop anytime soon.    Everyone can order product directly from our website, via fax, phone or email.

Secondly, and sadly, we have received no response  from Lowes, Home Depot or The Hillman Group.

Thirdly, our fight to save the little, and in the scheme of things, perhaps insignificant, InfoBox and InfoTube has inspired and motivated so many of you.  Your support has really picked up morale here and words can’t express you how much we need it and how thankful we are.

Truefully, I’m not sure whether the idea of a chinese knockoff, swinging on “For Sale” signs in front of American homes, many of which are foreclosed, touched a raw nerve…or, whether the idea of a forced layoff of hard working Americans, many disabled and handicapped, was infuriating…or, whether the picture of one of the last American made products, being washed away in a chinese tsunami was just too much to take…but, the anger and frustration that you are expressing about our retailers and their lack of support for available American products is powerful, loud and clear!  WE DON’T UNDERSTAND AND WE HATE IT!

i pray that they are listening.  I have proudly worked with the largest retailers in the land for nearly 20 years.  My growth, as a company, I owe to them.  I still believe in them.  I believe that they care what their customers think and they want to deliver what we want to buy.   Your voice matters, so please keep sending those heartfelt emails and Facebook posts.   Eventually, our voice will reach someone in charge who cares.

Thank you for your support and for sharing our story with your friends and collegues.   I will issue updates and share any information or responses I receive, so you can follow our progress.   We hope every second of the day that we will have something good to report!

PLEASE HELP INFOTUBE SAVE AMERICAN JOBS!!!

Wednesday, May 4, 2011 posted by Tommi Crow

Crow Erickson—a small, woman-owned company—is a quintessential American success story.  INFOTUBE® literature boxes were invented 23 years ago in my garage in Dallas, TX, to provide Realtors®, builders and homeowners with an affordable way to sell their homes.  

INFOTUBE® was an immediate success and quickly made its way into every major retail home improvement store across the country, where they have been sold for more than 20 years by retail giants like Lowe’s and Home Depot.  Over the years, our company has provided meaningful, competitively paid work for hundreds of disabled and handicapped Americans.

Today, our patented INFOTUBE® and INFOBOX® literature dispensers are used by millions of home sellers, Realtors® and home builders every day. You can find them in neighborhoods across America, very likely even your own.  

Recently, our largest distributor, The Hillman Group, without notice, replaced our patented products with Chinese replicas.  Their decision effectively puts our company out of business and, ironically, provides no cost savings for the consumer

WE NEED YOUR HELP! 

1.  Please copy and paste the following  letter or write your own: 

I am writing to request that your company take a stand to protect American jobs by continuing to carry successful American-made products, specifically INFOTUBE® and INFOBOX®. 

“Made in America” matters to me and so does supporting our U.S. economy. I do not support companies who outsource American jobs to China. 

Please continue to support all Americans including the American companies whose products you currently carry on your shelves. 

Sincerely,

(your name)

2.  Email it to the decision makers at Lowe’s, Home Depot and the Hillman Group.
