Dear Investors, YES, The Market is Really Changing! I work with many investors and they have been aggressively bidding on low end condominiums with the goal of upgrading and renting them out. Up until now, the strategy has been working, as the offers are cash, without contingencies. Of course we have been at the mercy of the bank's decisions, but in a majority of the cases the banks have agreed or at least countered. But that was the last 18 months. Times have changed, this strategy is no longer working. The last 9 offers I presented have been met with additional offers on the (4 comments)
bethel: DO IT NOW! - 01/25/12 03:14 PM
In these past 2 years, 3 out of 5 people I talk to don’t want to list their homes for sale, because they are not worth what they were worth 5, 6 or 7 years ago. They would rather put their life’s plans on hold and wait for the real estate market to come back. How sad that thought is? It brings to my mind a story that I was told about 20 years ago. The story was about a man who really got tired of his job, in fact he really never liked it much, but he showed up (0 comments)
bethel: A Lesson on the Way to the Office - 03/02/11 04:04 PM
Today as I started on my morning commute to the office, I received a call from a friend who told me there was a traffic accident on the highway I was about to enter. I quickly pulled into a gas station to think how best to get around what I was sure would be traffic, and after a 20-second pause I hopped onto the highway anyway figuring if I drove fast I would get by the accident before traffic backed up. Of course, less than a half-mile down the road the traffic ground to a stop... I screwed up, I made (2 comments)
bethel: DO YOU HAVE a VALENTINE? IF YOU DON"T, BE YOUR OWN VALENTINE - 02/14/11 03:42 PM
I have been facilitating a divorce support group for more than 3 years now and I know this can be a difficult day for a person of divorce or for anyone who is feeling alone, as the media, traditions and the culture of this world around us calls us to remember our lover with flowers, candy, etc. About 5 years ago, as I was browsing the card store for a card for my granddaughter, this card seemed to just jump out at me. It was a Blue Mountain Arts card with a verse from Beth Fagan Quinn. It struck me and (1 comments)
To Reduce your stress! Ask yourself if you're being high maintenance and low performance at this time, and if the answer is yes - then stop. Let go of excuses you cling to in order to explain away your lack of success. Stop feeling defeated - it's time to attack the problem again, using a different tact. Take on one task at a time and finish it. Don't set arbitrary goals such as, "I will work on marketing this property for the rest of the day. Vision your tasks successfully completed. Stop being defensive - your self-esteem is not something (7 comments)
bethel: Balloons are not Just for Kids! - 07/29/09 03:48 PM
It all started when one resident of the Bethel Convalescence Home let the staff know that riding in a hot air balloon was on his bucket list. A call to RE/MAX Unlimited Real Estate and a hot air balloon event was scheduled. What a pleasure to see all of the residents sitting outside the facility, on a beautiful sunny day, watching the RE/MAX balloon being spread out and inflated.
And then the excitement really started - as more than 50 residents, most in wheel chairs each had their moment in the air. The process of lifting each resident out (1 comments)
