Your price is too dang high!

Your price is too dang high!
 
Pricing a property correctly is very important- for a few reasons:
 
1. Credibility with your client/owner.  If a property is initially priced too high, an owner loses money as it sits vacant and others nearby that are priced correctly are rented out ahead of it.  Initially pricing a property too low, however, will lead to an incredible amount of interest and a quick rental- but you’ll be doing a great disservice to an owner who is able to withstand a bit of vacancy time while netting … (0 comments)

Student debt may hurt housing recovery...

Student debt may hurt housing recovery...
 
http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/student-debt-may-hurt-housing-recovery-by-hampering-first-time-buyers
 
My initial reaction to this story was but a simple "Yep".  I mean, I don't necessarily see anything profound or earth-shattering about news that student loan debt might hurt those bearing said debt- or any other debt for that matter.  Money going out the door towards anything inherently leaves less money to pay for other wants, needs and/or responsibilities.
 
A bit more thought got me riled up a bit, in that I really don't care for where this story in particular and the student … (16 comments)

Were your documents really shredded?

Were your documents really shredded?
 
Helpful hint of the day... an HHOTD, if you will:  when using an office shredder such as the one pictured above, ensure that all of your documents' pages have indeed been shredded prior to leaving for the day.
 
Don't get me wrong, shredders such as this one are pretty dang convenient- in that they allow one to place a stack of documents inside and walk away while the shreddin's done.
 
The down side of this is, of course, is that it's just as easy to forget what … (6 comments)

Tenant code violations?  Owner pays

Seems there's been a bit of trouble brewing down on Marco Island.  Some of the goings-on with the Code Enforcement folks of this seemingly idyllic area of Southwest Florida should serve as a reminder for homeowners elsewhere, though:  if you rent out your property to tenants who don't comply with codes, you're ultimately responsible for paying any fines that accrue.
In this story, a property owner (technically their daughter) appeared at a code enforcement hearing to answer complaints that their tenant had had committed a number of … (2 comments)

"Great" beats "good", but "good" beats "nothing"

"Great" beats "good", but "good" beats "nothing"
 
I've seen it a lot in real estate/property management, but the scenario plays itself out in other facets of life as well:  passing up good while holding out for great leaves one with nothing.
In property management, for instance, an owner with a place on the market and vacant might require that applicants meet a higher credit score than our usual one.  That's well within their prerogative- and some would argue it's human nature that another applicant will soon follow any that are sent on … (2 comments)
