realtor: Labor Day Weekend, the End of a Sad Summer - 09/02/20 08:08 PM
​​Happy Labor Day,
 
What a sad year for all of us. We have been forced to live life as if we were a third world nation. Masks, home-bound, no indoor eating at restaurants, small businesses going bankrupt, many businesses hanging on by a thread, hospitalizations and loss of life is hurting our American Spirit. The Stock Market and Real Estate Market remain strong.
Labor Day Weekend, just like Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day & Easter will not be as enjoyable of events as we usually enjoy. We, as Americans, will keep our eyes on the future knowing that better days are ahead … (14 comments)

realtor: Election 2020 Is it time to sell? - Summit Real Estate Group - 07/23/20 09:47 AM
Dear Family, Friends & Clients,​​
There are three main reasons that a home doesn’t sell within three months at this time. Two are avoidable and I can solve the third one. The number one reason by far is not listing the home at a price that will bring in the maximum number of highly qualified buyers. The second is not having a quality Virtual Tour and Photos. The third is not hiring an Experienced, Knowledgeable, Professional Local Realtor. We have been listing and selling homes since 1996. We know that reaching our fellow Realtors is the key to bringing in the most … (6 comments)

realtor: Do you realize that we can not avoid going into a recession? - 03/11/20 04:04 PM
It is already too late to avoid a worldwide recession.  Too many jobs have been lost, events cancelled, paychecks missed, mortgage paymense unpaid and net worth devastated.  Talk of a cure being at least a year ago has shattered consumer confidence.
This post is not meat to create fear but prepare you for a rough ride ahead.  Protect your finances.  Be careful on your spending and warn your friends, neighbors and family of impending turmoil.

realtor: What Dave Ramsey (Debt Free Guru) won't tell you. - 01/12/20 06:50 PM
The quickest and safest way to become a millionaire is through home ownership. The secret to becoming a multi-millionaire is by getting into debt. The reason is simple. It is called leverage. We can buy a primary residence of $500,000 with a $15,000 down payment. Real Estate in California traditionally appreciates around 6% to 7% per year. This is a great return on your investment. However, that is not the benefit. Consider that you have only invested the original 3% your return over ten years may rise to well over $250,000. This is a return of about 17 times the original … (5 comments)

It is going to be the best time of year for buyers beginning at the end of October and runs through to the middle of February of 2020. Buyers put home purchasing on hold until Springtime comes near as they are preoccupied with School and Holidays. The News and Media will continuously bombard us with information about the slowing real estate market. This slowing is due to this annual phenomenon.

realtor: Freedom is Underrated - Happy 4th of July - Fireworks Shows and Events - 07/02/19 10:35 AM
America, "Land of the Free & Home of the Brave" The sacrifices made by Revolutionary Freedom Fighters, Civil War Heroes, The Greatest Generation, Vietnam Vets & Soldiers ever since is beyond comprehension.  Giving up youth, future and an opportunity to grow old to preserve Freedom for the future Americans is something that can never be fully appreciated.  Freedom is not guaranteed.  The world can easily go back to the days of Kings, Dictators, Emperors & Czars.  Terrorism is a major threat but even more dangerous is complacency.  Believing that Freedom is to be expected rather than something that needs to be … (1 comments)

realtor: Why is Homeowner-ship the American Dream to me? - 06/24/19 03:47 PM
Many of us have our own version of the American Dream.  To some it's financial, to others it's career and still others it's simply success.  To me Homeowner-ship is the true American Dream.
I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan at a time when this city was the envy of the world.  There was no luckier person in the world than me and being raise in a family in which home-ownership was our only option it was assured that I would be a homeowner as soon as financially feasible.  I tried buying my first home shortly after getting out of the Army but … (2 comments)
