• Top Cities for Retirement

    Posted in News You Can Use, Team Gale on Jun 30, 2016

    Wilmington has been named among the top 50 cities in the US for retirement, by Bankrate.

    Premiere honors went to Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia, respectively; with three cities in Tennessee, two in Maryland and Iowa, and Sarasota, FL rounding out the top ten.

  • Further Proof that Zillow Is Not a Just Like Using REALTOR

    Posted in News You Can Use, Team Gale on May 26, 2016

    While online search tools have revolutionized the way people shop for real estate and the way realtors can interact with prospective clients, it has also proven as a source of extreme misinformation for homeowners as to the value of their property.

    A startling new example of just how "off" Zillow's "zestimates" are in establishing a reasonable market price is reflected in the home sale of Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff - which sold last quarter for 40% less than it's advertised zestimate.

    One day after the Madison Park home sold, Zillow estimated that it was worth $1.75 million dollars, when it in...
