Farm your niche market and cover all the happenings in your neighborhood
Do you remember playing Monopoly as a child? It always seemed if you could get the properties Boardwalk and Park Place you were more likely to win the game. Fortunately, we were playing with "play money" and there was always tomorrow if you didn't win today.
As most of you know, the real estate market is being challenged by bank foreclosures, jobs lost, and a struggling economy. It's important to keep a pulse to what's happening. While I may not be providing mortgages or practicing real estate, I do keep a watchful eye. I guess it's in my blood.
I grew up on the east-side of Detroit and lived in the Metro Area until 1998. From the big city I moved to a small town in Michigan, where the family's farm was located. For several years I enjoyed restoring and updating the 1892 built house. In 2004, I sold the farmhouse and property to get a newer home with less property to keep up. (100 year old farm houses do have their quirks.) A year later, a move to Indy was made. My husband and I came here to be closer to his family and in hopes of staying in the Mortgage Industry/Real Estate. Unfortunately, as the market worsened, we both branched out into other jobs.
I'm fortunate to have my mortgage and real estate experience. Understanding finances would help me with creating and maintaining budgets and my working with Developers, Builders, Contractors, Insurance Agents, Title Companies and Government Agencies would be an excellent foundation for becoming a Community Association Manager.
