When buying or selling a home, it is common practice for a title company to be involved in the transaction. Their primary role is to ensure that the person selling the home has the right to do so. They do this by validating the transaction through extensive fact checking, after their information requirements have been met they then issue a guarantee that is backed by title insurance. This title insurance is meant to protect the lender and the owner from future unsubstantiated claims. The title company has a handful of responsibilities throughout the process. We have created a short list of tasks to give you a better understanding of what value they provide during the transaction.

 

Here’s a list of what they can do for you.

Location, location, location! There are many things you can change about a home, but this isn’t typically one of them. There are no “perfect homes”, every home has its quirks. Find out what is most important to you and what are areas you are willing to compromise on.

Be ready to move quickly when you find what you want. Losing the opportunity to move on your dream home can be heartbreaking.

Pay attention to floor plans, would a particular layout work for better for your lifestyle?

Always do a home inspection. It will save you in the long run.

Vacant homes may appear bigger than they are. Use your phone to take photos, notes or videos of the properties to review later. Property details can blur together after several home viewings.

When faced with difficult situations you have two choices: succumb or overcome. 

To succumb is to fail to resist pressure, temptation, or some other negative force. It is, quite literally, a failure by giving up and letting your environment control you, your surroundings, and your future.

To overcome is to overpower or overwhelm, succeed in dealing with a problem, defeat an opponent and to prevail.

We are given these choices everyday, and must face them head on.

Currently, there are still restrictions on who is considered "essential" and what businesses can operate. I know that this is a point of contention however, I believe all businesses are essential in some way, especially when it comes to local economies. And, of course, people are…

I’ve come to realize, most people don’t know what it really takes for a Realtor or company to be successful.

The public mostly sees the agent who is out selling. However, what you don’t always see is: the admin, marketing, accounting, HR, transactions and other departments that keep your real estate transactions moving.

We built the team around the idea that we can all do more together and provide a better service for you, the client.

Because of that, we can provide you with better marketing, back end support, updates throughout the process, and more attention to both your personal needs and the needs of your transaction.

You win every time by working with our team because our agents aren’t worried about the details, and can focus on…

I have always had a passion for physical fitness -- running several marathons, interstate bike races and other events. This obsession for self improvement contributed greatly to my success throughout my eight years as a Wildland Firefighter.

As some of you may already know, I have been training the last year for a bodybuilding show. I put in hours of work, months of dieting and calorie restriction, early mornings and massive amounts of willpower to make this happen. Training for this show was a true challenge that took sheer discipline, determination and grit.

As you might have guessed...

The show has been canceled.

Do I feel like all my work was for nothing? Absolutely not. 

 

Here are some lessons I’ve learned along the way:

Flipping homes is more than just a business model.

Taking a property and sprucing it up has the power to revitalize a neighborhood, raise the price of homes in the area, create more curb appeal to move faster on the market, and last but not least, make your living area more homey and inviting.

Here, we take a look at 11519 Dawn Street in Eagle River.

This home was listed and sold by Matthew Lindsay at Precision Home Group in the summer 2019, then it was completely transformed and put back on the market for sale by Stacy Hague at EXP Realty.

See the before and after photos below.
