real estate: 5 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me Earlier - 04/16/16 10:27 AM

1. Real Estate Isn’t About Properties, or Deals, or Financing.
I made my first deal on a house. In one of the most obvious examples of karmic retribution I've ever experienced, the seller of this house was one of the little old ladies that I'd once accused my parents of taking horrible advantage of. However, this particular little old lady surprised me by telling me right up front that all she wanted for her home was the loan balance plus $1,000 to move, despite the fact that the property was worth about $15,000 more than that. It seems that her husband had … (0 comments)

real estate: 3 Secrets Choosing a Productivity Coach? - 01/28/16 02:44 AM
Question...are you prepared?
When I started real estate 30 years ago, I looked for a mentor (productivity coach) that had what I wanted. Things like a fancy car, big house, several income properties and a steady stream of business coming into the office. But what I didn't know was I wanted someone to do it for me and of course happiness.  A lifestyle that would be balanced in ALL areas of my life.  The biggest goal I had in my mind was an assistant to do the work for me. I did not have clear goals. Because I thought money would going to make all … (0 comments)

People who think that just because they don't have a LOT OF MONEY they cannot invest in real estate are WRONG. There are ways this CAN be done. How, you may ask? This article will explain that. There are actually a number of ways to buy property without personally having much money. Let's look at them.

real estate: Relocation Companies Good or Bad Deal? - 02/23/12 01:03 PM
Are Relocation House Purchases a Good Deal?
A lot of people ask, ôAre relocation house purchases a good deal?ö If you're asking this question, you are most likely interested in purchasing a house from a relocation company. By buying a house from a relocation firm, often called a ôrelo,ö you can get a good deal if you take a few precautions as you go through the home buying process.

Relocation companies typically buy homes at a discount, but with the increased number of foreclosures and short sales in the past couple of years, they may be more willing than ever … (1 comments)

real estate: What Does Short Sale Mean? - 02/23/12 12:58 PM
Buying Short Sales: What You Need to Know As the real estate market remains volatile, one of the best options for many new homebuyers is purchasing a short sale home. But, what does ôshort saleö mean? A short sale is when lenders have the opportunity to sell a property before the bank forecloses on the home rather than after. While buying short sales creates the opportunity for real estate investors to pay well-below-average housing prices for properties within ideal locations, there are still drawbacks.
If you're interested in buying short sales, here are a few things you need to be aware … (1 comments)

real estate: Foreclosure and Second Properties - 02/23/12 12:43 PM
ôBuying and bailingö refers to the act of buying a second property and allowing a first home to fall into foreclosure. Homeowners who purchase second properties in this scenario are typically ôupside downö on their primary residence, meaning they owe more on their first home than it is worth in the current market. It's likely that they had an adjustable rate mortgage and their monthly mortgage payment grew to a payment they could no longer afford. For some, an easy solution appears to be buying a second property at a depressed price with a fixed rate mortgage in order to lower … (1 comments)

real estate: Downtown Orlando Urban Living - 02/10/12 10:46 AM
If your the kind of person who wants total control on how you live, create the lifestyle you want. Spending more time with friends, family, colleauges and maybe your dog cannot be measured by .39 per sq foot a month HOA. Average cost of a unit in downtown cost $360 per month on Home Owner Association dues.
That price is paid every month on parking meters, travel, gas, yard maintenance and your time. So look at your investment as $12 per day. Spend time with everyone and let everyone take care of you. Oh by the way, you can cancel the … (3 comments)

Top 100 WSJ RealTrends 2004-2011 By Transactions (400+ per year) My WHY is "inspiring" agents achieve their maximum potential. Lesson learned. You must give away what you have been so freely given by mentoring, training, service and community involvement. The goal is to free up 80% of the agents time for education, team building, networking, retirement plans and strategizing to stay competitive. To allow the agent to build passive income stream, work 40 hours LESS and be in control of their personal lives. Paid vacations, retirement and saving plans are our first topic of discussion when coaching an agent, another lesson learned. : ) Specialties Corporate relocation, coaching, speaking, foreclosure-bank owned, short sales, aqusitions, mergers, negotiations, residential, multiplex commercial, condominium development, sales and marketing.
