Property sales in the United States are speedy when compared to the real estate markets of other countries. For better or worse, this system is something many realtors know inside and out but what happens if a client approaches your real estate agency looking to purchase in Spain? The property market is arguably more active in Spain than in the United States, with 76% of people in Spain owning their own homes, compared to the US average of 65%. While the end goal is the same, selling homes, the Spanish property market is unlike that of the USA and several key differences shouldn’t be overlooked for a smooth completion. Property ownership Perhaps the biggest difference between how people buy property in the United States and Spain is the idea of ownership and what it entails. Commonly, p...

Changing the Focus for SuccessWhen first taking a shot of this gorgeous southern Utah sunset, I thought the tree was in the way until adjusting the focus. Squatting to the ground, it became obvious that the tree is what makes this photo successful. A true standout!When progress becomes impeded, changing the point of view rather than accepting what is before you, is necessary. The solution might just be one step forward or one back, higher, lower or a mere turn away. Business requires adapting to whatever presents. Some days, everything can go well, others are difficult, where everything becomes difficult to manage. Knowing how to act or react appropriately determines the direction and by all means, set right the focus if finding yourself getting in the way! Happy Monday all!

The '5 Why Method' can be a very effective problem-solving tactic to locate a problem's root cause.You can get to the root of an issue by asking "why" it is happening over and over again. Instead of just dealing with the symptoms of a problem, the goal is to find out what's causing it.For example, an agent who is having trouble earning enough money, for instance, might ask the following five why questions: Why is my income low? - I'm not closing enough deals. Why am I not closing enough deals? - Because I'm not getting enough clients. Why am I not getting enough clients? - Because I am not effectively marketing. Why am I not effectively marketing? - because I lack marketing expertise. Why do I lack marketing expertise? - because I've never been taught marketing strategies. In this examp...

Your unpaid taxes will not be more than 25% of the penalty.    • The Failure to File Penalty is reduced by the amount of the Failure to Pay Penalty for a month both penalties are applied in the same month, a combined penalty of 5% for each month or part of a  month that your return was late.    • The Failure to File Penalty reaches its maximum after five months, but the Failure to Pay Penalty remains in effect until the tax is paid, up to a maximum of 25% of the unpaid tax as of the due date.    • For tax returns that must ...
