The commercial real estate market operates within two distinct segments: off-market and on-market transactions. Each segment has its unique characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages, catering to different types of investors and property owners.


Off-market transactions refer to commercial properties that are bought and sold without being publicly advertised or listed on popular real estate websites like Crexi and Loopnet. These deals often occur through personal connections, word of mouth, or specialized brokers with extensive industry networks.

Man Thinking

In the world of real estate, there's a pervasive belief that it's always a good time to buy and sell property. However, the truth is that's not always the case. In fact, sometimes, it's in a client's best interest to hold off on buying or selling real estate altogether.


Now, I know this might sound counterintuitive coming from a real estate professional, but hear me out. As someone who's been in the industry for years, I've seen firsthand the consequences of clients making hasty decisions based solely on the belief that they need to be in the market.


The reality is that the market is constantly changing, and sometimes it's not in a client's favor. While there may be an overall trend toward buying or selling, it's important to take a closer…

Buyers Remorse

It's not uncommon for buyers to experience feelings of regret and remorse after purchasing a property, and there are various reasons why this may occur. Suppose you are part of the 75%. In that case, you should find peace in knowing that many people just like you did not ask the right questions of their advisors, including real estate professionals and lenders, who should have supplied you with enough information to make a good decision. 

One potential cause of remorse is overpaying for a property. In today's competitive market, buyers may feel pressured to offer more than they can afford to secure their dream home. It's understandable to feel regretful if they realize later that they overpaid for the property.

Another reason why buyers may…

Both Zillow and realtors can provide valuable information for buyers and sellers in the real estate market. However, the reliability and accuracy of the information provided by each may vary.

Zillow is a popular website that provides real estate information, including home value estimates (Zestimates) and property listings. Zillow's data is crowdsourced, meaning it relies on users to provide information, which can lead to inaccuracies. Zillow's Zestimate algorithm may not take into account certain factors that would affect a home's value such as the condition of the property, updates and renovation, location, and market conditions. Zillow Zestimate is considered a starting point to get a rough idea of a home's value, but it's not a substitute for…

 1. Peer Pressure

“Everyone else is doing it” does not mean that it is a good reason to buy.

2. Short Term

If you know that you will be moving in less than five years then renting may make more sense.

3. Low Inventory

This pushes prices higher than maybe in the summer when there is more inventory.

4. Job Loss

If there is any chance that you will be laid off for an extended period of time, then now may not be the time to buy.

5. Market Swings

If there is any chance that you will be laid off for an extended period of time, then now may not be the time to buy.

Reach out to one of our agents to see if it's a good idea for you to buy or rent.

THE REAL ESTATE CYCLE - Barring any special circumstances, every home, neighborhood, city, town and state is subject to the inevitable influence of the Real Estate Cycle. Independent of any external pressures, the stages of this ever-changing sequence have been the source of much unnecessary financial and economic strife and leave a permanent mark on homeowners and the municipalities they populate.

If a certain locale is not growing, it may very well be declining. This is a dynamic pattern that can and will impact the indirect and sometimes unforeseeable consequences of consumers unknowingly purchasing ‘too much home’ for their budget. The ripple effects of this are far-reaching and can often accelerate the decline of a…
