We know how to deal with adversity and we know what it takes to be successful.

We do more dollar volume than any other association or franchise in the country. "We know how to deal with adversity."

    The Bill Black Team—Formerly of CBSHome—Is Moving to NP Dodge

    The Bill Black Team—Formerly of CBSHome—Is Moving to NP Dodge

    Our team is making the switch to NP Dodge, and today we’d like to let you know what this change will mean for you. Looking to buy a home? Search all homes for sale here. Looking to sell your home? Click here to use our home evaluation tool. At first, CBS Home Real Estate was simply “CBS”—having been named after the three gentlemen who ran it at the time. A little later on, another brokerage called Home Realty went under and was absorbed by CBS. It was at this point that CBS Home Real Estate was born. But now, after more than 50 years, CBS Home Real Estate is coming to an end…sort of. We’re making the switch to NP Dodge. We believe this transition will truly be what’s best for our clients. NP Dodge is family owned and has been up and running since 1855, making it the oldest real estate company in the United States.   We’re so excited about this change. And longevity isn’t all they have going for them. They handle insurance, title services, land development, property management, and much more. Our team has a lot of faith in the brand and what it stands for. We’re so excited about this change. If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Are Open Houses Worthwhile?

    Are Open Houses Worthwhile?

    Are open houses a good idea for home sellers? Today I’ll give you a couple things to consider. Looking to buy a home? Search all homes for sale here. Looking to sell your home? Click here to use our home evaluation tool. Should you or should you not have an open house? Here at the Bill Black Team, we have a solid marketing plan, and after almost four decades of listing houses and selling them at high rates, we know what to do in order to expose your house to the market. Less than 2% of buyers come from open houses, so it’s entirely up to the seller as to whether or not we do an open house. But here’s my concern: When those buyers walk through that front door, I don’t know who they are or whether they can afford this house. I have no idea if they intend to buy this house or if they just wanted to come look around. We’re seeing an increase in thefts during open houses; prescription drugs, personal information, jewelry, firearms, collectible items, and more have all been reported missing from these types of events. The biggest thing I worry about regarding open houses is the personal safety of the homeowners. I will say, however, that I’ve been doing this for a long enough time that I’ve got that aspect taken care of if you’re ever interested in doing an open house.   “ Less than 2% of buyers come from open houses. ” If you’d like to talk to us about our marketing plans to expose your home to the market and how to sell your home at a successful list-to-sale ratio, reach out to us. Last year, we sold between 99% and 101% of the sale price on average. Those are pretty good odds. Hope to hear from you soon!
