phoenix real estate: Hey Phoenix ActiveRainers, join me for our meet and greet March 28th - 02/17/14 03:22 AM
So in the spirit of keeping up with the lovely Kerrie LaGuardia who has asked us to set up local Meet and Greets, I've decided to set up a little get together for all of us ActiveRainers in Phoenix and surrounding areas.  
In keeping RainCamp alive, I've tried to find something centrally located in Phoenix for us all to be able to get to and from.  Here's our 5 W's (Who, What, When, Where, Why)...that's the military in me guys
Who:  All ActiveRainers in and around Phoenix (cmon you can make it)
What:  Meet to discuss our industry and put … (0 comments)

phoenix real estate: Who is exempt from paying the VA funding fee in a real estate deal? - 02/16/14 09:00 PM
When you're in escrow as an agent with a transaction that is utilizing a VA loan, generally, there is always a VA funding fee.  However, some good info for you to know as an agent is that some people are exempt from paying the VA funding fee in a real estate transaction.
The funding fee is a percentage of the loan amount which varies on the type of loan (1st time use vs subsequent usage) and the veterans military category.  More on this below.  Here's the funding fee chart for your files and to use in being able to explain this to your … (0 comments)

phoenix real estate: Solar panels and the additional value they can add to your home - 02/11/14 02:48 AM
Here in sunny Phoenix, Arizona when the temperature reaches 115 degrees in July and August, there's a real opportunity for real estate agents to explain to buyers the potential solar panels add to a house their clients maybe considering buying.  Remember though, our heat is only a dry heat. 
I used to live in a house that used this very technology and it was my first time doing so.  I have to tell you, it turned out to be awesome, the first time I got a check from the power company for power I hadn't used but that they bought from … (6 comments)

phoenix real estate: The art of Verbal Judo webinar and blogs, thank you ActiveRain - 02/01/14 04:04 AM
 
I wanted to thank all the ActiveRainers and others who tuned in to listen to me, Alex Popovic, host a webinar with Bob Stewart from ActiveRain.  The turn out was phenomenal, over 1000 people signed up.
In case any ActiveRainers didn't know.......these guys and gals at A/R HQ are absolutely phenomenal and represent what a true professional organization should exude.  Professionalism, willingness to share....I could go on and on.  For you ActiveRainers who have an idea - no matter how silly you think it maybe - you should reach out to Bob and see if they'll consider it for a … (2 comments)

phoenix real estate: Ex NSA spy launches free email encryption service….check this out! - 01/24/14 01:22 AM
Given everything that's recently occurred with the breach of data at Target stores and the revelations by Ed Snowden about the NSA, many Americans are re-thinking how they communicate and what they communicate.  I can tell you having worked for the government and someone who's held some of the highest security clearances in the government, its scary what they can do and I've seen it first hand during the Global War on Terror. Think I'm exaggerating, check this out! 
This week, Virtru launched very quietly and is the brain child of a former NSA architect Will Ackerly, it will allow you to … (6 comments)

phoenix real estate: Facebook to lose 80% of users by 2017….updated...Facebook responds! - 01/23/14 12:53 PM
All organisms in nature follow a clear path from birth to growth to maturity to old age and finally death.  Interestingly, businesses are no different.  The same graph that charts the numbers of bacteria in a colony over time-called a "bell curve"-is the same as a graph showing the lifespan of a company. 
Facebook interest has peaked and the largest social network will lose 80% of its users by 2017.  That's only 3 years from now!
Academics at Princeton University used......get this, theories on the spread of disease combined with Google data on Facebook searches to predict the demise of the … (196 comments)

phoenix real estate: Agents who make six figures plus, spend six times more on technology - 01/15/14 11:43 PM
Ever wonder what being a successful real estate agent actually entails?  Virtually anyone can become a Realtor® and can become rich from it too.  For example, I (Alex Popovic) took a 2 week crash course and passed the licensing exam shortly there after, while going to school for my MBA.
The tough part comes afterwards though....right, you know......being successful! 
I live in Scottsdale, AZ and my real estate office is in the heart of Scottsdale right by Scottsdale airport.  My office window looks over the tarmac at the plethora of Lear Jets that line the runway, did you know that Scottsdale airport has … (71 comments)

phoenix real estate: A/R community beware…please read this..UPDATED with Debbie Reynolds - 01/15/14 05:33 AM
 
UPDATED: This is crosslinked with Debbie Reynolds blog, please read her blog here
I received the above email this morning from Debbie Reynolds (actually it was from a hacker), we all know Debbie and what a wonderful ambassador she is on A/R.  The email itself seemed odd and I received it on my phone.  At first I thought it was an email/link she forwarded to me from some individuals who have been trying to slander my name on the internet and who have been sending childish links and emails to other email addresses, they will be dealt with very shortly.  I decided to call … (7 comments)

phoenix real estate: Free Internet…...not much longer, welcome net neutrality. - 01/15/14 01:02 AM
Imagine you're getting ready to upload a Youtube video to your website about a property you were just contracted to sell.  You've spent hours filming, editing and applying the final touches to your masterpiece.  You hit upload to your Youtube account and BAM.....that'll be $1.00 pops up.
This could be what happens in the very near future.  On Tuesday a Federal appeals court struck down an FCC ruling meant to prevent an Internet Service Provider (ISP) - and who you pay for internet access - from prioritizing some website traffic over others. 
SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
Suddenly, service … (87 comments)

phoenix real estate: Litigation 101 - What to expect in a lawsuit? Part 1 - 01/03/14 12:35 AM
Most real estate agents, and most people for that matter, have never been involved in a lawsuit.  The first thing I'd say is a lawsuit is a marathon not a sprint.  I recently attended a GRI contract class and the instructor, who's been involved in real estate for over 30 years in every capacity, said, "I've been a broker who's been responsible for over a billion dollars worth of transactions, you're going to get sued and you will sue others with that amount of money and contracts being executed."  Expect that during your real estate career that you're going to either sue … (9 comments)
