Would you pull your own teeth??? Or how about sending a family member to the do it yourself dental office? I think not. That’s what you’re doing when you try to sell or buy a home on your own. Unless you’re in the profession of Real Estate. Marketing, showing, writing a contract, collecting Ernest Money and just talking to strangers that are looking for a bargain.
It’s not possible to do what I do at your skill level without the proper training it takes to understand all the nuances of the industry. I work in an age-old industry that has weathered ups and downs. The REALTOR® brand has been around for more than 100 years. The strategy is paramount in Real Estate sales.
Let’s make this a place to call home. AHHHHH!
Feel free to ask questions. I’m here for you’re Real Estate needs.
As I’m driving through the neighborhood looking at the homes, yards and the cars in the driveway. I’m thinking about the new home going up in between the existing homes. I thought to myself I wonder if the house next to the new one will look old and dirty or outdated? What will the owner think of the new house that looks intrusive, all that was there before was trees and shrubs.
Well, I believe it does. That takes me to the person getting ready to sell. The outside appearance is extremely important. When getting ready to sell and move on you do want top dollar, right? Here are a few tips that will catch the eye of the buyers coming up the drive;
pressure spray the driveway and sidewalk
pressure spray the front of the house
paint the outside if possible
make sure there is no trash out front
plants should be colorful and fresh
have the lawn mowed
Crisp, clean, warm and inviting. That’s the image that says come in and buy me.

I’ve heard this before, time is money I’m sure you have to. As we all work hard for our paychecks, we save, make investments, start a 4021K, etc. The sneakiest worst thing is when a person gets scammed out of the cash they have in the bank. I’ve just meat a lady that this happened to her 84-year-old mom. Yes, that’s right as the story goes.
Mom is home alone and this nice man approaches her and becomes her friend. Not only one time but over several months he conveniences her that they are friends and he’s just a little short. Mom goes alone and says I best tell my daughter. His response, oh we wouldn’t want her to worry, would we.? Of course, the mom who was a registered nurse helping people to many years says oh no, your right.
The daughter catches wind of the thief and turns him over to the authorities. Guess what, they can’t do anything. You know where this is going. My thoughts are with you, keep a close eye on each other. Don’t let a rotten thief steal from your pocket, your wallet, your home. Remind your friends, family, and co-workers to be on the lookout for scammers.
Don’t be afraid to turn them in. I personally don’t buy from a telemarketer. I stay with well know web sites and stay with professionals. Especially when the time comes to make a purchase.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition finds that 2.5 million veterans heading households are at least 55 years of age. Of those 2.5 million veterans, 24 percent have housing cost burdens. Unlike our older civilians, our older veterans are more likely to have a disability — 35 percent versus 28 percent — which may require home modifications, health and other supportive services as they age.
Our female veteran population is in need as well. According to a report by the National Housing Conference, nearly half of our veterans who are single mothers spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing. Our female veterans face significant economic and housing challenges and are particularly vulnerable to housing cost burdens compared with our overall veteran population.
Likewise, our most recent veterans who served following 9/11 have returned to a slow-growing economy and rising housing costs. These economic factors have made the transition from military service to civilian life difficult for many of our veterans.
In addition, nearly 4 million of our veterans pay at least 30 percent of their income toward rent or mortgage, while more than 1.5 million pay at least 50 percent. As you can imagine, using half of your income to pay your rent or mortgage is an enormous strain on any budget.
Thank you for your service. Please feel free to contact me for any Real Estate needs.
