Outstanding Service is a Choice. How do we offer the best local value in Real Estate? The greatest expense in Real Estate is lead generation... in short advertising. The early days of the Internet offered effective, low cost advertising – a savings few Brokers passed along to clients. The days of low cost Internet advertising are long past. Low cost advertising gave way to a small group of Internet conglomerations controlling the majority of the market. Like every other industry controlled by a few entities, prices quickly escalate. Some of these companies take advantage of loop holes in the law to collect and sell Real Estate leads and personal information for other purposes. Ez1 Realty refuses to do business with these companies – and refuses to compromise one letter of the law. In short, Ez1 Realty passes savings along to its clients!
Ez1 Realty refuses to purchase Internet Leads and offers you the exclusive promise to never share your contact information in an effort to make a couple of extra bucks. We treat Real Estate, your confidence, and your privacy seriously.
If you signed up on one of the major Real Estate web sites and
provided your email address, chances are all the Internet sites you
visit are being recorded and that information is being sold. I've
been contacted by a number of web sites selling or giving away your
personal information. I can assure you, searching on this web site
will not attach any tracking applications nor will I purchase any
information sold on potential Buyers and Sellers. I personally
consider such acts an invasion of privacy. If you agree – I am the
Real Estate Agent for you. Let's get back to doing business the old
fashion way – a relationship built on trust and respect.
Ez1 Realty invests in the latest technology to operate more efficiently – which makes home selling and buying Ez-er on you. If your at a comfortable level with Real Estate contracts, with your permission our EZ sign system can prepare all the contracts to your specifications and send them to you via one of the best and most secure eSIGN programs. You can sign contracts on your phone or computer! If your more comfortable with face to face meeting, we can go over every detail of the the contract in person before you sign. Your comfort level is the most important concern at Ez1 Realty.
I hope you find all the information you are looking for --- and don't forget, I am only a phone call away. 414-426-1784. Or E-mail me at Dherman@Ez1Realy.net. I promise to keep your information confidential. I'll handle all the spam E-mails and phone calls, freeing you up for more important matters. Home buying and selling should be fun.
Make a list of your needs and desires. A new home should have everything you need and most of what you desire.
Begin your search early. Keep up to date on current market conditions and price trends, interest rates and loan programs.
Know your limitations. Don't get involved with repairs and updates beyond your scope of experience and your budget.
Gather a team you know you can rely upon. This will include a Real Estate Agent, Lender and an Inspector.
Having worked with a number of Buyers, I have developed listening skills which allow me to review a number of properties and find those most likely to appeal to the buyer's individual needs and desires. After reviewing hundreds of listings I can present a short list of homes to view. In most cases buyers have chosen one of these properties to become their new home.
Real Estate Sales are stronger than expected for the first 5 months in Menomonee Falls. From January 1, 2013 to June 10, 2013 The MLS shows only 326 single family Listings for all of Menomonee Falls. Much lower than normal. Sellers seem to be holding off, waiting for the market to change.
Out of 326 total single family home listings shown on June10, 2013:
162 are active, 58 have accepted offers
164 have sold since January 1.
That leaves only 104 single family homes available for sale in Menomonee Falls. Prices are on the rise across all price ranges.

REALTORS Housing Report: June Sales -0.1%, 2nd Qtr -7.3%
Prices Increase in 2 Largest Counties
Homes Selling More Quickly
July 15, 2014- 4-county Metropolitan Milwaukee home sales for
June were down 0.1% from a year earlier. 1,924 homes sold in June
compared to 1,925 in June 2013.
While June technically marks the sixth straight month that the market
saw a decrease in year-over-year sales, a one-unit decrease is basically
even considering overall sales volume of almost 8,000 units.
Through the 2nd quarter, sales were down 7.3%, 8,593 units in 2013 vs. 7,962 through the 2nd quarter of 2014.

A spike in listings in June – up 11.2% from June 2013 – would seem to
lend proof to the theory that home sales were held back in the first
half of the year due to a lack of inventory for buyers to choose from.
However, June was the fifth-straight month of listing growth. The 11.2%
increase in listings pushed the inventory level for June up to
8.5-months, slightly above May’s 8-month level. If the 2,006 listings
with an active offer are subtracted from current listings of 10,274, the
inventory is effectively 5.8-months; a hair above May’s 5.6-month
level. A year ago, June’s effective inventory level was at 5.5-months

Despite mixed signals on sales and inventory numbers, area brokers have
not been discouraged at all this year. Buyer interest remains high,
sellers can expect realistic prices (with some move-in ready properties
seeing multiple offers), regional employment numbers are solid, and warm
weather has finally arrived.
It is difficult to determine if June is the beginning of a trend, with
sales at or above the previous year and added supply, but insiders do
not seem to be concerned.
At this point, the GMAR projects that sales for the year will fall in
the vicinity of 16,013 units. That figure is based on the first-six
months of 2014, plus the average of the final six-months over the last 3

I received this from the Wisconsin Board of Realtors. Feel free to pass it along.
When your dealing with me, all important messages and details are followed up with a phone call as well as an E-mail. This is not only the professional way to handle a transaction, it is common sense.
Wire Transfer Fraud Schemes
Fraudsters recently have been hacking into broker's email accounts. After reading emails containing details for an upcoming closing, the fraudsters send a fraudulent email directing the title insurance company to wire the earnest money deposit to an entity owned by the fraudsters. This email appeared to come from the broker's email address. The entity to which the deposit is to be wired appeared to be another title company. If the title company complies and wires the money as requested, the money is stolen by fraud. In some recent instances the scheme was thwarted but in another the money was stolen and is gone.
The original fraud scheme has morphed into several variations:
In one case, the buyer received a phony email that appeared to come from the title company's email account directing the buyers to wire their cash to close to the fraudster's bank account. Fortunately, the title agency had also sent legitimate wire instructions and the buyers called to find out which instructions they should follow.
In another case, the title agency received a phony email that appeared to come from the seller's email account directing the seller's proceeds to be wired to a bank to the account of an entity with a unique name. The email contained numerous grammatical and punctuation errors.
In yet another variation, "revised" wire instructions were received by title companies, redirecting the seller's proceeds to the fraudster's account with an explanation that the revised instructions are directing the proceeds to an investment company or entity owned by the seller or "on behalf of" the seller.
In Madison, the fraudster appeared to send an email that came from the title agent and stated the sellers will not accept a cashier's check and attached the wiring instructions.
What can you do to prevent these schemes? June Potter, Regional Manager ofKnight Barry Title Services, LLC has offered these words of wisdom:
Always phone the broker and all parties involved in the transaction to verify emails asking you to transfer deposits. Use only known, legitimate phone numbers (not phone numbers obtained from the deposit transfer request email).
Be especially cautious when the wiring instructions reference a bank located outside of Wisconsin or an entity other than your actual buyer or seller.
Advise your customers of these schemes and ask them to be on the lookout for responses to emails they have not sent. These response emails may be an indication that their email accounts have been hacked.
Advise buyers not to wire funds to your office without calling you first.
Provide written notification to all parties that revisions to wire instructions will not be accepted without a verbal confirmation.
Add a notification to your wire instruction form that revisions to your wire instructions are not to be followed and that the party receiving the "revised" wiring instructions should contact you immediately.
Take steps to secure your computer system and all email accounts used by agents and employees from hackers.
