True Gotham: An Excellent Real Estate Agent Is Worth A Multiple of Their Weight In Gold

18 July, 2016 posted by: CORE

Reporting from the front lines, Douglas Heddings brings us “True Gotham” – your source for NYC real estate tips, advice, anecdotes and general market insights that aim to inform and enlighten. 

I have been blogging since 2006 in an effort to raise the bar in real estate and to dispel the used car salesman stereotype of real estate agents. Despite my efforts, I am still shocked by some of the incompetence I witness in the industry. Thankfully, the industry continues to make great strides with the overall quality and intelligence of my current day colleagues vastly improved from 25 years ago.

As the Director of Sales of CORE, I have a different and more objective perspective of the real estate agent. Although rarely an intimate player in the transaction, I’m often sought out for advice, direction or simply approval regarding certain aspects of the deal. Because of my involvement from pre-listing to closing, it is easy for me to appreciate the agent who rises to the top by providing a level of professionalism, insight and knowledge that makes them a true asset in any transaction.

Here are just a few of the things that contribute to an agent being an asset in your transaction:

  • Being of Service – The better real estate agents understand that they are there to serve and assist you.
  • Excellent Communication – This means LISTENING to the consumer but also communicating effectively and HONESTLY about market conditions and all things real estate.
  • Staying Out of Their Own Way – The best agents constantly check themselves to make sure the consumer’s best interest is always primary.
  • They Don’t Sell – Hard selling rarely aligns with the consumer’s best interest.
  • Excellent Navigators – In an information rich world, making sense of and navigating the information is key.

Agents who practice the above and constantly try to frame themselves as an asset in the transaction tend to indeed be worth more than their weight in gold.

Commercial Basis: Is Airbnb Disrupting the Second Home Investment Market?

11 July, 2016 posted by: CORE

Greenwich Village 040

Commercial Basis explores how technology, branding and demographic preferences are shaping office and retail real estate in New York City. As these forces break down the barriers from where we live to where we work and shop, Lead Commercial Specialist Alex Cohen will assess the impact on real estate values and opportunities.

Much has been written about Airbnb’s impact on demand for hotels and apartment rents in specific neighborhoods. In addition, we are now familiar with the controversial restrictions municipalities have enacted to minimize the perceived deleterious consequences of short-term rental in multifamily buildings. Now we are observing the dramatic impact of Airbnb and its peers on second home investment markets like the Hamptons.
