Sometimes, as much as I prioritize self-awareness and looking inward, I still manage to surprise myself with a struggle I don't see coming. My recent focus on building up my Real Estate career has shown me some flaws in my perception of work, and specifically my own self-worth regarding the type of work I'm doing. 

I make stuff; welding and metalworking, woodworking, I make furniture and fixtures, I repair machinery and motors. I absolutely love it. What brought me back to Real Estate and drives me to keep at it is its ability to let me hold on to all those things I love as hobbies. I find that supporting my family by building things doesn't allow me to take joy from it like I did before I went into business for myself. Enter Real Estate, it…

Volatility Appears to Be the ‘New’ New Normal  

Over the past few weeks, we have been witnessing a significant change in the financial landscape in the United States. During this time, we have seen the stock market come down from its recently achieved historic highs. As the price of stocks has decreased, the value of investors' portfolios, and 401K accounts, have been impacted.  

  • Whether this is a short-term or a long-term phenomenon remains to be seen.

  • The reality is that the rapid run-up in market valuations since the election in 2016 occurred much faster than is normal, and therefore the likelihood of a correction has been anticipated for some time.  

  • What had not been anticipated, or widely understood is the swiftness…

Up, Up, and Away!!!

By Buddy Kane

 

 

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s another inflating real estate bubble!!! Hello sports fans. Its BK with another public service announcement on what we’re seeing on the ground. Today we’re going to talk about cash buyers, fierce competition, and a small measure of professional etiquette. Once a rare breed, cash buyers are now much more commonplace, armed with the liquid resources to prevail in current bidding wars for what little inventory remains. In the current market, if you’re not bringing cash, good luck. Within the most affordable price ranges, it used to be that first time home buyers were in direct competition for starter homes with --- well, other first time home buyers. This is no longer the…

1. Too 'Hungry'

Agents need to tell their clients the truth, even when that truth is difficult to hear. Failure to do that is not representing clients at the highest level of integrity. If they are too “hungry” that they will sell you anything, they are not looking out for the client's needs. 

2. Rushed

I would avoid the agent who is always in a hurry and doesn't have time to focus on your needs. A person who is only focused on landing the sale may not be good for a long-term relationship and creating value for the customer. It’s best to know your priorities and choose a broker who matches them.

3. Overly Pushy

As real estate professionals, we are entrusted with the honor of guiding our clients through one of the most significant…

 1. Peer Pressure

“Everyone else is doing it” does not mean that it is a good reason to buy.

2. Short Term

If you know that you will be moving in less than five years then renting may make more sense.

3. Low Inventory

This pushes prices higher than maybe in the summer when there is more inventory.

4. Job Loss

If there is any chance that you will be laid off for an extended period of time, then now may not be the time to buy.

5. Market Swings

If there is any chance that you will be laid off for an extended period of time, then now may not be the time to buy.

Reach out to one of our agents to see if it's a good idea for you to buy or rent.

Think…

And Grow Resourceful

 “Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think…”

 

All you Einstein’s out there, I know you’ve read it, Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”. It’s a seminal work that has a spot in everyone’s library in some way, shape, or form. This book and others like it are placed in a category that has been referred to as “durable knowledge” that stands the test of time. It imparts a brand of timeless wisdom that validates a sustained presence. This category includes other published works like “How to Win Friends and Influence People” as foundational platforms for us to model as we forge our own style or approach. The fundamentals of any undertaking are a critical starting point that helps…
