moving: Our Conscious and Our Clutter - 08/12/19 03:51 AM
by Patricia Feager, 8/12/19
 
Clutter is a word that makes some people uncomfortable. Yet, when people move it is a word that comes up in conversations. Another word I think about is conscious. It is something we live with our entire life. Clutter, on the other hand, accumulates over time and can be controlled. 
Like many people, my family was affected by Alzheimer. If you ever lived with or known anyone with Alzheimer, you know it is startling when something out of the blue triggers a memory. Something in their subconscious comes back, unexpectedly, crisp and clear. At times, being with my aunt in Florida … (17 comments)

moving: Health Care Is Broken - Don't Turn Your Back On The Aging - 06/22/19 09:08 AM
Educational Post for 6/22/19
by Patricia Feager
 
With time, everything ages. Neighborhoods, houses, commercial properties, community parks, medical facilities, schools, streets, and infrastructure. Maintenance should not become a taxpayer's burden, but it happens. 
 
Homes were built and designed with wear and tear in mind. Home appliances, heating, air conditioning, roofs, foundation, windows, floors, walls, soffits, eaves, gutters, fences, water heaters, plumbing, and electrical aren't built to last. Oh, there may be transferable warranties and people may think a lifetime guarantee is their protection; however, read the fine print. Home maintenance is essential and becomes a financial concern over time.
 
PEOPLE ARE MORE VALUABLE

People also age. Sickness and … (17 comments)

Motivational Post for 3/25/19

Spring is a great time to sell! After lots of planning, plotting, and getting prepared, a Seller typically looks forward to seeing a For Sale Sign in their lawn and Neighbors are often surprised. How can Sellers help their neighbors during the transition?

RECOMMENDATIONS
 
Tell your neighbors you're moving one or two before the sign goes public
Saying something is better than nothing at all or letting them jump to wrong conclusions
Before throwing things out, perhaps your neighbors would appreciate first offers
Pass out your Agent's business cards to your neighbors for potential buyers
Don't let … (10 comments)

MOVING IS EMOTIONAL
 
Here is an important truth. For as exciting as a move is, it is also a roller coaster ride, filled with emotions! All of us have things that we struggle with and things that at times seem to overwhelm us. Moving is no exception. These are the times when buyers need strength, courage, and the power to make rational and realistic decisions. Focusing on needs take time. How individuals respond to change can impact their quality of life. It is crucial for buyers to have the right licensed agent to build a relationship with. You just … (18 comments)

THINKING ABOUT MOVING?
 
WHY WAIT UNTIL SPRING, SUMMER OR FALL?
 
 
Here are some good reasons to consider moving in Winter instead of Spring, Summer, or Fall to or in the vicinity of Flower Mound, Texas:
 
Cooler weather outdoors means movers move faster Hot weather outdoors means movers move slower Moving Companies may charge by the hour Moving Companies may be cheaper in off-seasons than peak seasons Many sales are offered after Christmas, i.e., Appliances, Furniture, etc. Less competition with other Buyers Sellers may be more Motivated Closing in winter means less likely to conflict with vacations, graduations & … (9 comments)

Experian makes a big improvement to credit scores to help people move quicker and easier. Something buyers dread is when they hear from their lender, they need a higher FICO score to qualify for a loan to get the better rate. Scheduled to be unveiled in 2019, the UtraFICO ™  Credit Score may significantly improve credit worthiness for consumers with current credit scores in the upper 500s to lower 600s. Prospective buyers who will benefit include the following:

"STAY FOCUSED, GO AFTER YOUR DREAMS
AND KEEP MOVING TOWARDS YOUR GOAL."
--- L L Cool J
 
Moving can be FUN or not..... A funny thing happened to me while driving today. I was following a U-Haul and couldn't move out of my lane, so I was focused on moving towards my goal, while reading the advertising on the back of the truck at each traffic light. This company advertised "Easy load ramp," and the other moving guys offer, "Deck Height!"
 
Ah ha! I thought to myself, if I were moving, I'd choose a company with an "Easy load ramp," and definitely … (16 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 5/20/18
 
The first time I came to Dallas was for a Job Interview. Before I even got back home in Northern, Illinois, I had a recorded message telling me I was hired and Relocation Papers would be delivered by FedX. Relocation was exciting but there were many things to do, i.e., get my house ready to go on the market, hire a Real Estate Agent, make arrangements with the Moving Company that my Company arranged for me to use, fly back to Dallas, and find a place to live. It took all of 13 days to fly to Dallas … (16 comments)

moving: Selling is About Attitude and Accessories - 12/08/17 07:41 AM
BY PATRICIA FEAGER, 12/8/17
REALTOR® with DFW FINE PROPERTIES
 
ATTITUDE
Selling a home is really more about "attitude", as so many things in life are. It all begins with cleanliness, functionality, and making your home comfortable enough so others see themselves having what you have now.
 
ACCESSORIES
Accessories has always been able to make people feel good about that terrific look. Think about the old black and white movies and settings from the 1940’s, a time many buyer or agents weren’t even born. For movie actors back then, it was the Fedora hat, a brimmed hat with pinched crown that effortlessly elevated the height of every man’s head that seemed … (62 comments)

The foundation for healthy living is developing and maintaining healthy habits. To be successful in business one must be physically, emotionally, and financially healthy. Being in the Real Estate Industry, you're dealing with people's lives, including your own. Moving is stressful. Agents are in the moving business and moving has a direct impact on all lives. Whenever there is death of a loved one, divorce, changes in financial status, job gain/loss, health issues, personal relationships, pursuing educational goals that involves family members (including yourself), chronic ill conditions, pregnancy, accidents … (25 comments)

As a Tourist with my camera by my side, I spent time walking around the Blue Spring Heritage Center. Slowly I sauntered on the Trail of Tears in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, www.bluespringheritage.com. My heart was pounding; my feet felt the strain and traces of a great Nation of People who traversed to different locations before me. Without a doubt, I navigated through sacred grounds. There, I connected with the natural beauty surrounded by opaque, translucent, and tranquil reflections of Autumn, 2017.

From Flower Mound, Texas it is about … (34 comments)

moving: Does Consumption Influence Home Buying & Selling - 08/27/17 07:19 AM
by Patricia Feager, 8/27/2017
 
SELLING
This is the story of the man whose wife ran away with another man and left her belongings behind. The man kept hoping, she'd come back, but she never did. He lived in a home, all alone surrounded by STUFF. Out of all the homes on the market, this is the one my buyers wanted to buy. When asked if the Seller would be able to get out and close on time, the Agent said, "Yes," he has a moving crew who will have everything out before we close.

The day before closing, nothing was moved; again, listing agent … (47 comments)

PROFESSIONALLY CLEAN YOUR NEW HOME
Create a plan before the movers come to unload your furniture and possessions to professionally deep clean before you move in. The house may be vacant, it may look clean, but from a hygiene standpoint, is it really germ free? Germs can linger! You don't want invisible freeloaders. 
 
In a previous post I wrote on What Can I Do to Attract Buyers? I wanted to be sure prospective Buyers take precautions and cleaning seriously. If you don't have time to read my article, there's one take-away I'd like to share use nontoxic, environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and be … (52 comments)

moving: Moving With Maslow's Hierarchy In Mind - 05/16/17 06:34 AM
Musings by Patricia 5/16/2017
 
Moving doesn't have to be that hard if you think about it as it as part of the journey - it's the cycle of life. I created a chart that describes Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with visuals as a reminder of how one move, one house, one change can make a positive impact on you, the economy, and other people. 
 
 
ACCEPTANCE
Physiological needs consist of food, water, warmth, and rest. People and pets have a need for safety and security, a sense of belonging; personal needs and feelings are real. As we develop and grow there are hopes, dreams, and goals with … (19 comments)

moving: Moving Cost - Streamlined, Sealed & Delivered - 12/27/16 07:23 AM
 
 
Every seller has a story. The business of bundling up material goods is a process of elimination. The pressure to move on gives rise to emotions. Life as you know it is about to be streamlined, sealed, and delivered. 
 
Chord-Cutting
Transition involves the distribution of goods. Selecting the right place to move, including the right moving company requires careful thought, especially when it comes to cost and quality of services. A do-it-yourselfer will feel the pain, the strain, and constraints of letting go. If a seller pays for services, the greater the quantity the more it costs. The more you discard of could mean the more … (57 comments)

Thanks to AR Member Nina Hollander, I was reminded that the reason why I didn't get any mail today is because it's a holiday - Columbus Day! In honor of Christopher Columbus and his courage to travel, many people have been motivated and inspired to travel and move to other parts of the country. In my recent adventure to the State of Montana, I found contentment and experienced some challenges along the way. The sights were spectacular!
