What does a surveyor do?

The job of a surveyor is to make sure that a property's boundary lines are up to date, and that sites are properly prepared for construction in order to avoid any legal disputes. This is done by making very precise measurements to determine the boundaries of the property. Surveyors have the technology to provide data that is relevant to the shape of the Earth’s surface for mapmaking, engineering, and construction projects.

There is so much more to real estate than just selling someone a property. Before buying a home, we have to go through various third party vendors to ensure that the property you are looking at is in good condition, and you are getting the best deal for your home.

Every Realtor wants a quick sale, an easy transaction that is as stress free as possible.

Our team does everything within our power to exceed these expectations for our clients. However, every property, homeowner, and situation is unique, and listing a home it’s not always as straightforward as you might think.

Last summer, we listed a triplex and got an offer for our client in 14 days!

Everything was looking great and running extremely smooth, until about three days before the closing date.

We got a call from the title company saying that we wouldn’t be able to close because the carport extended over the property line, by matter of about four feet. 

My client could not extend the closing date because he was due to leave the country for…

Last spring, I listed a home with a less than ideal floor plan.

I knew it could be a tough sell, but despite the unique design, I found a buyer for our client within 30 days.

We quickly came to an agreement on which repairs needed to take place before closing, and thought to myself, “This is going great and will be such a smooth sale.”

One of the action items was to install a sump pump in the basement. (A sump pump helps to keep excess water from accumulating, and pumps water to the exterior away from the home.)

And, since this home was built in the 50's, the basement was basically... a solid block of concrete.

Be Unreasonable with Your Investments

 

Too often, I see people who want to start investing in real estate too soon. Everybody knows that real estate is a great investment for many reasons, but many people don’t know how to do it properly. Because of this, I see people invest in many different types of deals at varying results. The masters in the investing game are unreasonable about their investments and you should be as well.

As an inexperienced investor, you will see a lot of potential deals that all may look like a great deal. However, before you start investing, you need to analyze many deals and create your own requirements for investing. Those requirements should include things like your desired rate of return, location, how long you intend to hold the deal, knowing and…

What is a REIT?

REITs were created by Congress in 1960. This was done to give everyday people the benefits of owning real estate.

The 10 steps to Home Buying

 

Many people fear what they do not know. The same is true when it comes to buying your home.
