Bob Dittmann- Coldwell Banker

Bob Dittmann- Coldwell Banker This is the page for Bob Dittmann Agent for Coldwell Banker Mid America Group Realtors. Bob is a dual active licensee in both Sales and Appraisal.

I am a dedicated real estate professional who holds dual active licenses in both Real Estate Sales and Real Estate Appraisal (FHA,USDA Approved.) My background as an appraiser helps my clients be better protected from appraisal contingency issues that are common in today’s market. Sellers benefit from my ability to analyze market trends specific to their property; helping them achieve the highest possible sale price in the shortest time-frame possible using specific and real time analysis of current competitive market trends. Buyers who use me benefit from my ability to perform a complete market analysis prior to offer providing extra leverage and credibility in the negotiation process over an agent without comparable experience. If you are thinking about selling or buying a property, consider using a dual agent to protect the transaction as the buyers lender will most likely be using an appraiser. I have represented clients over the last decade (sellers, buyers, lenders, builders, attorneys) in over 3,500 real estate transactions with a total market value in excess of $500 million. I have represented clients in all price ranges including multiple properties with values above $2 million. It is my mission to impress you to the extent that I earn your referral…

Just completed another lender appraisal on a property sold through a flat fee realty. Marketed on the yard sign was a rider that claimed the seller saved over $7,000 by using XYZ Street Realty. Offering buyers agent their 3% the savings came from the sellers agent limited representation. The property appraised for $22,500 more than the sales price (based on it's competitive market.) So, lets do some math... Save $7,000 to lose... (Buehler... Ferris...)Yep. $15,500 left on the table. Just call me. I'm worth it and will represent you over my commission...

I just finished an appraisal of a property, marketed through an "alternative listing service." Marketed on the listing sign is "I saved over $6,000" rider advertisement. Well, the seller who I met during the appraisal was shocked at how many offers she had in the first day.... What I could not tell her was that it was because the property sold $34,000 below market value (On an under $200,000 property.) Don't save a little to lose a lot... Call me before you list. I will be glad to walk you through the process and ensure that your best interests are represented over mine...

Homeowner sues Zillow, says ‘Zestimate’ is nonsense

It's about time. While Zillow is a useful marketing tool that offers otherwise unavailable pictures and information to the masses. The "Zestimate" is the result of "garbage in = garbage out" When in doubt. Call an appraiser who is also an agent. I do this every day, market valuation has been my profession for 12 years and I will be proud to help you sell your home!

A Chicago-area homeowner has filed suit against online realty giant Zillow, claiming the company’s controversial “Zestimate” tool repeatedly undervalued her home, creating a “tremendous road block” to its sale.

Only Three US Cities Have Good Jobs, Affordable Housing, and High Quality of Life

We all have seen how Des Moines has changed. It's publicity like this that is helping us continue to get better. This point in our history will not last forever. We should celebrate it now with pride. I love this city and am excited for the future!

When looking for a place to live, people are generally looking for three things: affordability, a strong economy, and good quality of life. Most US cities can only claim excellence in one of these areas. A dozen cities specialize in two. But if you truly want it all, you only have three choices.
