why isn’t my property moving?

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Hi! I’ve compiled a short little checklist for those that have properties that just aren’t selling.  I have seen a lot of houses come and go throughout my career and those that have the most difficulty in moving often have similar traits. Cleanliness is usually a common starting point.  Whenever your property is being shown, […]

moving up?

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Hello everybody! As Bob Dylan once famously said, the times they are a changing! We’re all well aware of the real estate slump that we’ve endured for the last couple of years.  I can honestly say that things appear to be settling and leveling themselves out in the market.  Houses are starting to move more frequently, ground […]

A big mistake I see

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Hey all, One of the biggest mistakes that I see every single day is people giving up.  Something bad happens in a deal and they think the world is coming to an end.  Or a term isn’t exactly the way they want it to be and the sky must be falling.  Sometimes in these situations […]

Tax sales

Hello! I was sitting at home last night and trying to think of things that could better help those that read my blog when I remembered that there’s another way to acquire property that some people either don’t know about or know too little about!

Why isn’t my home selling?

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

I think the biggest mistake sellers make today is being a little too unrealistic about the value of their homes due to their emotional attachment and belief that a dollar-for-dollar system exists when it comes to upgrades.  Just […]

Adversity is something I’m asked about a lot. Let me tell you guys, everybody has to deal with challenges and problems in this life.  It isn’t all sunshine all the time.  It’s no different with me or any successful individual out there.  It’s not about how big the challenge is or how many times it […]

Hey! The thing about real estate is that it’s a competitive market with lots, lots of opportunity for entry.  It just depends on how deep you’ll dig to find the right deal.  Anybody can do the basic steps, but to go the extra mile and actually investigate every possible deal is what separates the savvy […]

Which path will you take?

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Hey everybody! I’m feeling really energetic today.  I think my assistant put some red bull in my coffee!  It got me thinking that a lot of people, and I’m guilty of this too at times, have a tendency to go through life in a mundane manner.  It’s so easy to let life drag us instead […]

How to start your search.

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Hello again! Today I want to briefly talk about how you go about finding deals. A lot of people think the most productive thing is to type real estate in a search engine (Google anyone?), but that can’t be further than the truth.  You can save yourself a lot of time by going to these […]
