Facebook has become an integral part of life – business, shopping and personal relationships. So it’s no surprise that we recommend it occupy a consistent place in your marketing strategy. But how do you start? Here’s the basic rundown of what (and when) you should be posting on Facebook.
If you are thinking about leaving your old house behind for a different one – to upgrade, to downsize, to relocate, or for some other reason – you are probably thinking the same thing most people in your situation do: “Should I rent my house, or should I sell it?”
As with so many big decisions in life, there is no easy answer to this one. Renting out the home and selling the house each offer advantages, and potential drawbacks, that you must weigh carefully before making a decision.
There can be pros and cons to both selling or renting your home.
How sure are you that this is the right time for you to settle down in your very own home?
Buying a home is one of the things that most people grow up hoping to do one day. Who wouldn’t want to have a property as an asset in their name, and more to that, why wouldn’t you want to gift yourself and your loved ones a well-deserved home where you can put down roots and raise a family?
You’re a recent graduate, or a seasoned young professional, and you have so much to offer the world. While it’s true that the economic landscape has changed dramatically since your parents signed their first mortgage, the first few real estate decisions you’ll make are still so important in planning for the future.
Investing in real estate for the first time can be overwhelming and even intimidating. It can also lead to a lot of fun and financial success. Everything depends on your outlook, education, and street smarts when it comes to the real estate market.
Usually people get to wade gradually into investing. Buying a house is more like a plunge into the deep end. With other investments, you can start small and then make bigger commitments as you gain a little experience. So, you put a few hundred dollars into a stock, or have money going into a 401(k) retirement savings plan. Then you ramp up to bigger investment decisions over time. When you buy your first house though, you may be committing hundreds of thousands of dollars to a type of decision you have never made before.
To help overcome that lack of experience, think through the process of buying a home from an investment standpoint.
I call the absorption rate the early warning indicator because sometimes it lets you actually get out in front of a movement in real estate prices. Once you learn how this works, you’ll know something around half of real estate professionals don’t understand.
The absorption rate is the rate at which homes are selling based on a time length measured and the sales as compared to the currently listed inventory. In other words, you have 4000 homes currently listed. You want to see the absorption rate based on the previous three months, and you find that in that time 1500 homes sold.
Congratulations, you’ve done it. You’ve bought a home. After going through the tedious process of buying your new home, you’re undoubtedly thrilled by the feeling that comes with reaching this important milestone.
It’s no secret that owning a home is the foremost aspiration that one looks forward coming true. But there’s an aspect that comes after purchasing a property that shouldn’t be overlooked – proper knowledge with legal documents and certificates. By having the right information, you’ll avoid getting duped by con men and scammers.
The number of people engaging in real estate has rapidly increased over the years and with this development, a lot of con artists are taking advantage of the status as well. Being involved in the real estate practice is not an easy feat. Whether you are an investor, buyer or broker a great amount of due diligence is required in order to safeguard your hard-earned investment and effort.
