Last weekend on The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show on 970WFLA, Andrew Duncan spoke with David Diaz about the EOY 2015 real estate statistics for Sarasota and Manatee Counties.  They discussed how prices have risen as have the # of sales, but that condo and townhome values are starting to soften.  They also compared the stats to Tampa’s home sales stats and discussed how the peak periods in the 2 markets are different (Sarasota can see a peak in winter months due to population increase, retirees/vacation buyers) whereas Tampa’s strongest months are generally in the summer (December due to homestead exemption still continues to do well though).  However, the 2 markets do not see large fluctuations in # of sales like northern states do in the winter.

The Fed news causes rise and uncertainty in mortgage rates




Andrew Duncan talks to David Diaz of Waterstone Mortgage about the recent news from the Fed and predictions that the fed rate will rise, and so will mortgage rates. Everybody is banking on them raising the rate in December when they meet again. That, coupled with the jobs report which severely surpassed expectation, caused the rates to worsen a bit in the past week. With that said, it makes more sense to buy now more than ever rather than waiting for it to bee to late.

How are International and Chinese Buyers Impacting the Tampa Bay Real Estate Market




Andrew Duncan talks to Arnie and David Diaz of Waterstone Mortgage on The Duncan Duo Show about recent impact of international and Chinese buyers in Tampa Bay. He mentions an article that talked about Chinese buyers inquiring about luxury Real Estate in Tampa Bay which he's also seen first hand. Another article talks about how Spanish speaking women are now a driving force for home buying. 

Real Estate in Florida is a cultural melting pot. He suggests to those selling homes that it is important to identify who the niche buyer is and how to appeal to those audiences who have unique tastes and preferences. 

In the Duncan Duo team, they have multiple people who speak different languages (Russian and Spanish) which is an advantage because when you're selling a property like they do and massively advertise it everywhere, it's important to find ways to get in front of that audience. 

Andrew busts the myth that foreign buyers would pay more for your home. They may not speak English very well but they do know how to do Math. What sellers need is an agent who knows how to tap into that audience to expose your home to a Spanish speaking audience or a Chinese audience. 

Re/Max is found across a hundred countries all over the world which is another plus as they allow agents to have connections with other agents in exposing their properties.

David adds that each group has a different culture. And speaking for the Spanish, he says that they have to like you (the agent) and trust you. Once they trust and like you, you're family. 

Andrew further talks how important it is for agents to have that multi cultural training. By being educated on how to work with these buyers, the agent will be able to provide proper customer service and helping them come up with the solution. It also helps to know how homes are bought and sold in different parts of the world so they can explain the differences of how they work here. 

As a real estate agent, you have to be conscious of all the different cultures, how they communicate and how real estate is done in their country so you'll understand how not to be bothered by something that might come off in different scenarios.

Bob Corcoran Renowned Real Estate coach talks about transitioning to a listing agent on The Duncan Duo




Bob Corcoran, founder and chief executive officer of Corcoran Consulting and Coaching, and one of the nation's best real estate coaches, talks to prospective buyer agents for The Duncan Duo in both Tampa and Sarasota about the possibilities and opportunities working with their team. Corcoran coaches some of the world's highest producing real estate agents and focuses on high performance and amazing culture.

The Duncan Duo is nothing like any real estate company or real estate team you may have experienced. In the real estate industry, the average agent in America last year sold 4.7 homes a year. When you look at the production of The Duncan Duo, their average agent have sold 60 homes a year. In fact, this year, they will close over 700 properties. 

Bob Corcoran, one of the country's best real estate coaches, and coach of The Duncan Duo team at RE/MAX, gives a message to current team members of The Duncan Duo who wish to transition from a buyer agent to a listing partner on the team.

The next 3 months will be a tough road as you move from the buyer side to the listing side because it all comes down to cash flow. He recommends that you continue working on the buy side for the next 30 days while training to be a listing partner. 

Andrew Duncan and Robert Johnson have developed a very strong training program. Karen MacCormack has been working diligently to prepare you for the next step and helped you get to this point of responsibility. 

As you start taking listings, he recommends that you get off the floor time but still maybe work on the leads you have in your pipeline to keep the cash flow. He says your work-life balance is going to be a little out of whack but if you want to be the best listing partner then you have to follow this advice because a lot is going to be invested in you and he needs to make sure that you're willing to make the commitment to be diligent in your training. When it comes to a point when a listing partner will have 6-7 active listings, when you're totally done working the buy side. 

The listing side is all about discipline. You have to be the one of the best time managers on the team. But if you're lacking time management skills, he strongly recommends that you talk to him or Angela to fine tune your time management skills because that's what the listing side is all about. 

He also talks about what to expect when you are a listing partner. You're going to be required to talk to your sellers on a regular basis. He also talks about challenges that you also encounter on the buy side but gets a little bit more pronounced on the listing side. Some examples are sellers who get upset because you haven't called them back in an hour from a voice mail they left you; or sellers who are upset because their house isn't getting any showings. You cannot avoid those calls.

He talks about the video "Eat the Frog" which simply means that the hardest things you have to do and are not looking forward to, do them first thing in the morning. Never put them off until later in the afternoon because that never comes. If you don't take care of your frogs or call your sellers back who may be upset with you, you're only getting them more frustrated. 

Bob challenges you --- "Are you going to be committed to the training schedule? Are you going to be committed to follow what Andrew and Robert have developed as one of the strongest listing training programs in the country?"

You should feel honored to be selected to interview or be accepted to this team. Andrew and Angela belived in you to get you to this point. Now you can show your appreciation by dedicating your time to learning the process. 

If you get to the listing side and feel that it's not for you which has happened before, just be politely honest with Andrew and Robert because they'll be happy to welcome you back to the buyer agent division.

Bob Corcoran, #1 Real Estate Coach, invites agents to join The Duncan Duo




Bob Corcoran, founder and chief executive officer of Corcoran Consulting and Coaching, and one of the nation's best real estate coaches, talks to prospective buyer agents for The Duncan Duo in both Tampa and Sarasota about the possibilities and opportunities working with their team. Corcoran coaches some of the world's highest producing real estate agents and focuses on high performance and amazing culture.

Whether you're new to the industry or an experienced agent, if your focused in wanting to serve people and make money, he recommends you to see what The Duncan Duo is all about and you will not be disappointed. 

Andrew and Angela believe that by implementing strong systems, by allowing and taking away the non dollar productive work away from agents, they could afford a lifestyle for agents to make a lot of money and not work their tail off. 

If you want to make money and have individualized training, The Duncan Duo will invest thousands of dollars to train you how to sell real estate. The amount of training they will give you is unsurpassed in the industry. The team environment is not for everyone so if you're on the fence, see what The Duncan Duo has to say.

Whether you're looking in Tampa or in Sarasota, Bob guarantees one thing, he and The Duncan Duo are preparing to dominate the Florida Real Estate market.

The Diaz Duo at Waterstone gets video testimonials for happy home buyers with The Duncan Duo



Andrew talks to The Diaz Duo - Arnie and David Diaz - on the The Duncan Duo Real Estate show about what a phenomenal job they are doing for the team. They are one of their preferred lenders and recently were mentioned by a couple of their happy customers who did video testimonials for the team. Andrew's team is a high volume business and agents have a certain level of expectation especially with the lenders they partner with. The team has been so impressed with their follow up and responsiveness.

"One thing I love the most is we're able to help somebody buy a home that has been told they couldn't by somebody else. Giving them that American Dream is something my company just loves" - Andrew Duncan.

A hair-dresser has to take more education than a real estate agent to become licensed



Andrew Duncan talked this past weekend about changes coming to the real estate industry.  New standards and regulations with TRID are going to massively change how real estate agents help clients through real estate closings and how the processes for closings will be changing dramatically starting in October.  Arnie and Diaz from Waterstone Mortgage and Joellyn Robles from Hillsborough Title contributed to this conversation.

Recent articles have shown that a real estate agent has to only go through 70 or hours of education while a cosmetologist or hair-dresser goes through several hundred to become licensed to work with customers.  This makes no sense considering the financial impact of hiring the right real estate agent (or the wrong one) can have.  Unfortunately, there is a considerable lack of education and experience and many real estate agents are not prepared for these changes and the shifting in the market.  Agents at The Duncan Duo go through several hundred extra hours of training per year (before and after starting to work with clients) with a focused training boot camp as well as ongoing training about industry norms, standards and changes.   We strongly believe that more education should be required in order for someone to become a licensed real estate agent.  We encourage you to interview your agents, look them up online and compare them to see what kind of sales experience/reviews they have on Zillow or Trulia, and make sure you’re working with someone full-time that knows of all the new regulations, changes and shifting of the market.

Tampa Real Estate Market Update with Waterstone Mortgage – is the upswing fake / artificial or not?



A lot of articles about the positives and negatives of the upswing real estate market are coming out and our panel of experts give you the low down on what is real, what is not, and what to believe. Andrew's guests on The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show, Arnie and David Diaz of Waterstone Mortgage and Shawn Eckley of Yesner Law, each talk about their take on the articles coming out about the real estate market. 

There are even some articles that almost contradict each other. Some say that the real estate market is doing great but we have the lowest percentage of home owners that we've seen in a long time. There are also a lot of investor activity, people buying second or multiple homes.

On the mortgage front, Arnie agrees with the fact that foreclosures are down but Tampa Bay remains to have one of the highest foreclosure activity. In fact, we're top 3 in the country. But as far as sustainability of the market is concerned, he says it really depends on jobs. David adds that it would also depend on the goals and needs of the home buyer although each has different scenarios they have to go through. But to sum it up, he says buying and living in a home for the long term is going to be a good investment. 

Andrew agrees with this. It really depends on the person's needs. People who are looking to buy in longer cycles (5-10 years), would almost always going to be fine as cycles on the average only last about 2-3 years. 

Shawn also pitches in and although foreclosures, shortsales and bankruptcy numbers have all dropped in his business, he says he doesn't necessarily believe all the articles coming out about sunshine and rainbows now that we are going into the good times, just like he didn't believe all the articles that said doom and gloom during the bad times. He's in the middle. The job indicator is really good. But although we're adding jobs and unemployment rate is going down, the salaries of the jobs we're getting are not equal, even less, than the salaries of the jobs we lost. 

With elections coming up, there will be some discussions on how the economy will affect the real estate. No matter which candidate they go with, people tend to have that hesitancy when there is an election.


And just like anything, Andrew says that people tend to write articles about potentials, about what's going to happen, what's the future.

Surge in Pasco Real Estate, New Developments and Population Growth



Andrew Duncan, Tampa Bay's #1 Realtor and Expert, has a lively discussion about the surge in Pasco real estate, new developments and population growth with a great panel of experts - Scott Eckley with DR Horton, Aaron Davis with Hillsborough Title and the Florida Agency Network, and The Diaz Duo, David and Arnie Diaz of Waterstone Mortgage on The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show.

Scott says that as a builder, they are seeing lots of traffic in the area. They have 7-8 different communities they're currently selling. The traffic in Pasco County in the past 6 months continue to increase almost week by week. In fact for the last 2 months, they have broken their records in terms of home sales. It's a great combination for a lot of buyers because home prices are in the $100-200,000 range, they have good schools up there, more peace and quiet and although it's a bit of a drive, there's already an expressway for easy access.

Aaron said that when they opened in 2009-2010, they were right in Seven Oaks and at the time, there were a lot of foreclosure activity and a lot of vacant lots. Now, all of that is gone. There's now a hospital, multiple malls that have been built. He says that Trinity area is just booming! Unlike before where development are usually focused on the I75's, they are now getting off the road a little bit like the new hospital in Wesley Chapel which is creating thousand of jobs for people around the area.

David and Arnie talk about the trend of more first time home buyers going up there because of the price point. Some of those first time home buyers now have a spouse and kids and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Tampa. Pasco is still a great community, new malls, new infrastructures. 

A lot of people think about New Port Richey and Hudson when they talk about Pasco but Andrew says that South Pasco - Trinity, Wesley Chapel and Land O Lakes - is where a lot of big developments are taking place. One factor is the commute which becomes a bit unbearable when going to North Pasco. 

On the mortgage side, practically all of Pasco county does USDA loans which means 100% financing. Though USDA is a little backed up, this option is best for those buyers who are willing to wait. 

Another advantage is that the taxes are lower, too. From an affordability stand point, as the market starts to grow in the hot areas of town, buyers can opt for more home but go further out or less home and stay in some of those hot areas. The land prices in Pasco are lower than those in Hillsborough which translates to a lower sale price for the home. 

Andrew also recapped the article about Tampa Bay being the best kept real estate secret in the country. As compared to Orlando or Miami, Tampa Bay has a big percentage lower than their average sale price. Tampa Bay's values are still very reasonable for the opportunity and value of employment. All of the things that are happening - the Lightning winning, Tampa's market getting some national news, Andrew's appearance in CNBC, he says jokingly, all the employers are coming down to Tampa Bay. Aside from that, the retiree population is coming back which they lost to Georgia and the Carolinas just 5 years ago. Scott adds that they are also seeing an increase in investor activity because they are seeing more value because of the price and the weather, the beaches and more.

New Wave of Real Estate Agents Coming to Florida



Today I wanted to speak about the real estate licensee's renewal that is coming up in September. What's interesting about this is that 32,000 licensed real estate agents have not taken the necessary steps to extend their licenses through September. This means that if these licenses aren't renewed, we're going to see a massive decline in the number of licensed agents in our market. 

Interestingly enough, we're also seeing a big increase in the number of new people joining the real estate profession. A lot of them are younger, more data-driven individuals. My team is seeing much more interest from people who want to work with us than we were seeing just a few years ago.

Becoming a licensed real estate agent isn't as difficult as people like to imagine, it just takes a willingness to continue learning and a level of dedication. 

If you're interested in getting involved in the real estate industry, please don't hesitate to contact myself or my team!

Tampa Real Estate Market Improves and Agents flooding the industry: the good, the bad, and the ugly



Why Should You Be Wary of New Agents?

Improvements in real estate have led many people back to school to get real estate licenses, which is something you as a consumer need to be aware of. If someone is just now getting back into real estate after being out for a while, they may mislead you on their level of experience. Someone who has never worked in real estate, or who has been out of real estate for years, isn't aware of the latest tools and strategies for successful transactions.

You need to be cautious about who you work with. If it's someone relatively new to the industry, they may be using outdated methods and are likely to make mistakes. It's easy to get a license, but it's not easy to be a real estate professional. In real estate school, they don't teach you how to sell homes, they teach you how to avoid a lawsuit. Inexperienced agents won't know how to list a home, write an offer, or complete the process thoroughly. 

There are many people getting into the industry because they think it's a get rich quick scheme, but that couldn't be further from the truth. There is a lot to learn, and it takes years to get to the point where you can make a good deal of money. There will likely be some good changes brought by our strong market, but you need to avoid working with agents who come to the industry with the wrong attitude. You need to stick with experienced brokers while the new up-and-comers get a hang of the business! 

It may not be the right business move to hire someone fresh in the industry. Recent changes will bring in a whole lot of new blood into the industry, so you need to be cautious about who you work with!

Should You Believe the Horror Stories About the Real Estate Industry?

I recently received a question from someone in the health insurance business has had some challenges due to recent changes to his industry.
