Throughout my career, dating many years back, a small percentage of sellers have made the decision to go it on their own and sell without the services of a real estate company and agent. Some have felt successful while others wondered why they ever thought they could be their own agent and sell on their own. This article discusses some important issues you should consider if you’re thinking of selling on your own.Read More
Bruce's Team Blog:
Bruce shares his advise and experience on the Milwaukee-area Real Estate Market, Senior Living Real Estate options, families helping senior parents downsize and much more!
The real estate market is always moving in one direction or another. In real time, the market heavily favors the seller. This is because the inventory of homes is at an all-time low, giving anyone selling your property a distinct advantage over the would-be purchaser. That is great news for you, the homeowner. However, a caveat; the real estate market is always changing, and when it moves in one direction or another it usually is quick and decisive.Read More
In this blog post, Bruce explains the conditions of the current real estate market, and how similar it is to the height of the real estate market before the recession hit in 2008. Bruce walks through his predications for the coming year, and why many should take advantage of this market before it shifts. "I believe it is critical for those of you who are planning on selling and waiting for that perfect time. I am speaking to those of you who are thinking a lifestyle change is needed but not sure when is optimum time to make that move." Read the entire article and become more informed!Read More
Looking back at my 35 plus years career in real estate sales here is what comes to mind. When discussing a move with mom and dad, there is never a right time or a wrong time…it is just time! For most of us, the number one fear we have is fear of change. Going from a known to an unknown. Moving from one’s long-time home to a senior apartment or community is a daunting process. Everyone involved wants to do the right thing. The problem is that both parties, parent and child, want something different!
Remember your parents and grandparents telling you that as you get older life will accelerate? It is true as we age that time perception is far different at 70 years old than at 20!
What does this have to do with real estate? Everything! Our home is an integral part of who we are. Many of us have lived in our houses for many years. We know the neighborhood, the stores, the people. Leaving your surroundings can be like leaving a best friend.Read More
Bruce discusses how he and other real estate professionals price homes based on a combination of tax assessment, location, and condition of homes. The value of a home is not always dependent on the tax assestment. It can be either higher or lower, based on the market and the above mentioned factors. If you are curious as to the value of your property, this blog post outlines what you should consider and how it could affect the value in the current Greater Milwaukee area.Read More

In this article I break down my knowledge of the housing market and advice for baby boomers on selling their homes. The best strategy is to look to the past to help create your future in the most advantageous way possible. There are two factors that will play into housing values as we move into 2017 and beyond; inventory and interest rates (inflation). My advice in this article is directed to boomers. We as 55-70 year old boomers should have a different strategy from our younger counter parts. So many clients have waited too long and then made their move under duress or circumstances never planned for, such as health changes. We want to be in charge of our lifestyle rather than waiting for other issues to decide for us.Read More
