It's Important to have your inspections when buying a home in New Port Richey Florida.  Knowing that the home you have fallen in love with and will call your home is safe and sound not only gives you peace of mind but a sense of security.  Generally you have two important inspections to do prior to closing on your home.  Your contract to purchase has a paragraph stating that you have "x" number of days to complete your inspections and notify the seller in writing that you no longer wish to purchase the home.  Florida standard contracts will give you 14 … (1 comments)

real estate: Professionalism in Your Real Estate Business - Do Your Job! - 01/10/13 10:14 PM
Yesterday I was reminded how important it is to always maintain a high level of professionalism in our individual businesses.  Personally I try to be professional at all times and always do what my customers ask and do what I say and say what I mean.
Yesterday one of my listings had a showing appointment. The home is owner occupied and there is no lock box. The MLS does not say that I will accompany the buyers agent so logic would dictate that the homeowner would give access to the home.  The appointment was set for 10-11 am.
The homeowner left … (5 comments)

real estate: Using a Tablet for Business is NOT for Everyone - Written by a Geek - 12/16/12 10:54 AM
 Using a tablet for business is not for everyone. Different strokes for different folks. I love using my tablet in my business but I do not poo-poo those who don't. I teach people technology and how to integrate it into their business.  Not everyone has the same comfort level when it comes to technology and I see it first hand. Choosing to use your tablet for business is not something you wake up one day and start doing.
Take a listing appointment for example. You probably have a particular way you flip over the pages of the agreement. You most likely … (5 comments)
