GIVE ME 30 Seconds AND WE'LL CHANGE a Kid's Life Together... | APRIL 2022 Newsletter

GIVE ME 30 Seconds AND WE'LL CHANGE a Kid's Life Together...
Welcome, April! By the time you read this, we will be well into the month and I won’t be able to play any April Fool jokes on you! No matter, I’ve never been much of a fan of those anyway! Once as a teenager, my favorite radio station KHJ in Los Angeles (sister station to KFRC in the San Francisco Bay Area) announced they were going to change their format and start playing elevator music for half the day... So they did….and then announced, “April Fools!” Another BIG deal in April is TAX day! Yep, the pesky deadline for filing income tax returns.

Both April 1 and April 15 are conversation starters, to be sure, one full of funny stories, the other maybe not so much, but there are a few days more memorable than the day you buy your dream home. That day is supposed; ...

Why Track Record Is Important When Hiring A Real Estate Agent

That leaves many homeowners disappointed at not having their homes sold. However, during the same time period, this agent and their team sold many of their listings.

What I call a track record of success. They put their money where their mouth is. This realtor and their team use key systems to market your home and this is really important because more marketing casts a bigger net to a bigger pool of potential buyers, which causes home sellers to sell their homes for more money and sell them faster. Since selling a home is a major financial transaction, why wouldn’t you hire the most successful and experienced real estate agent to sell your home?

I can summarize the main reasons yo ...

Whether you were just thinking about selling or if you are further down the road and are preparing your home to get sold, deciding at what price to offer your property, most likely your biggest asset, is one of the most important financial decisions you will make. Depending on how a buyer’s made aware of your home, price is often the first thing they see, their first impression of your home.

Many homes are rejected by qualified buyers as not being priced right and that’s even before the first showing. You want to make the most money you can when selling your home, so it’s crucial that you make a good first impression. It’s equally dangerous to price your home too low, as you will leave money on the table. Pricing correctly is not a simple process and should not be taken lightly.
