7 REAL ESTATE FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW

  1. Property taxes are ASSESSED every year - this means your taxes will probably go up after you purchase your home.
  2. HOA Dues DO matter - the amount and frequency of the HOA dues in a community could make or break your financing.
  3. Real Estate Websites aren't ALWAYS accurate - some real estate websites feed from multiple sources, aren't regularly updated or can be updated by just anyone. Information that you find on the web regarding a specific house may not always be correct depending on how quickly the website updates its listings.
  4. Home Value Estimates are NOT always ACCURATE - these online estimates are calculated by a computer and not an experienced realtor which leaves out a lot of important factors used to price a home.
  5. Seller's PAY the commission - sellers pay the entire real estate commission for the sale of the home, half of the commission goes to the listing agent and half to the buyers agent. This means that if you are buying a home, then it is virtually free for you to use a real estate agent.
  6. Going directly to the Listing Agent DOES NOT SAVE money - some buyers believe they will save money going directly to the listing agent instead of hiring a buyers agent. This isn't true because the commission is always paid by the seller. It's also not recommended because the listing agent won't have a buyers best interests in mind.
  7. Not All Types of Properties QUALIFY for financing - not all financing programs accept all property types and not all sellers accept all types of financing. This is why it's recommended to explore available financing options before searching for a home.

   GRATITUDE

 There is one thing that you should be grateful for.  We are so blessed to be alive and living especially after a year like 2020, Covid and a Pandemic.

 We are truly blessed in life and to be happy you need to remember with gratitude everything we have been given.

Every Day... 

Every day, I wake up and thank God that I'm breathing and alive.  I ask him what I should do with the day he has given me?

Every day, I have an alarm set and a note on my calendar (at the end of the day) that says, "What was great about the day?"  My prompt to remember the good things in life EVERY DAY!

Every day, I try and journal what I am grateful for.

 I promise – Gratitude does lead to Happiness.  If you want to be Happy, you need to be Grateful.

 Try it out for a couple weeks and see how your perspective changes!

WHY I BECAME A REALTOR

 I had actually never considered being a realtor until I started working as a loan processor for a bank.  I HATED this job, so when someone offered me the chance to try something different, I jumped.

 I found out some of the incredible benefits of it and it matched up perfectly with what I wanted out of my life.

 It was important to me to:

- Work with people and help them make smart moves.

- Provide valuable information.

- Love what I do & feel fulfilled in my work.

- See some really cool homes and figure out what I wanted for my dream home.

  It was in 2002 when I finally decided I was going to go for it and when I started studying to get my license.

 It took me 1 month to get licensed and 3 months after that to sell my first home! It was incredibly exciting & I remember it like it was yesterday!

Easy tip to sell your home!

 Make your house smell amazing so people have a great first impression when they walk in. If you want to do this without using lots of chemically made fragrances then I recommend essential oils!

 Using certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG) essential oils allows for a pleasant aroma to linger throughout the space without irritating the nasal passages.

What types of essential oils you ask?

Lemon, Wild Orange and Peppermint!

If you are wanting to neutralize odors, try Purify.

Just a few drops in a diffuser and you've done the trick!
