Now there is a word that gets used and abused a lot!  Many people claim to have integrity, but few even know what the word means.   Merriam - Webster's defines Integrity as: Main Entry: in·teg·ri·ty Pronunciation: \in-ˈte-grə-tē\ Function: noun Etymology: Middle English integrite, from Middle French & Latin; Middle French integrité, from Latin integritat-, integritas, from integr-, integer entire Date: 14th century 1 : firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values : incorruptibility 2 : an unimpaired condition : soundness 3 : the quality or state of being complete or undivided : completeness synonyms see honesty Just because you put the word to use, or claim to have it, doesn't mean you automatically do.  One must act with Integrity to have Integrity.  Keep your word (...
Here is a list of some important questions to ask your loan originator before choosing a bank or mortgage company: 1. Which Type of Loan is Best? 2. What is the Interest Rate & Annual Percentage Rate 3. What are the Discount Points and Origination Fees? 4. What Are All the Costs? 5. Will the Lender Guarantee the GFE? 6. Do You Offer Loan Rate Locks? 7. Is There a Prepayment Penalty? 8. Are You Equipped to Approve Loans In-House? Do not shop based on interest rate alone.  If you need help finding a good lender, I have a list of local lenders available for you to interview and contact  information for each.  Information can be found at http://www.WeSellPekin.com or http://www.TonyBrust.com  or call me at 309-208-7748

What is Dual Agency? Dual agency occurs when a real estate agent is "representing" both buyer and seller in the same transaction. Since the agent has promised a duty of confidentiality, loyalty and full disclosure to both parties simultaneously, it is necessary to limit these duties in this situation, if both parties consent. If you find yourself involved in a dual agency relationship, make sure that you completely understand dual agency definition. This relationship involves the following limitations: The Agent will deal with the Buyer and the Seller impartially The Agent will have a duty of disclosure to both the Buyer and the Seller The Agent will not disclose that the Buyer is willing to pay a price or agree to terms other than those contained in the Offer, or that the Seller is wil...

So here is a statement I heard today..."there is nothing special about Tony's marketing, we all have access to it." You know that is a true statement.  Everyone has access to the marketing I do, it's just that not everyone chooses to take the time to use it!  More than 80% of prospective buyers, according to the National Association of Realtors, start their search for a new home on the Internet.  Don't you think that is where your home should be?  That is why I spend many hours using my e-PRO skills and Internet savvy to market my homes on the Internet.  I go to the place the buyers are. If you want your home sold fast, let me show you my marketing plan to do just that. text tonybrust to 50500 or send me an email to mailto:Tony@TonyBrust.com or Tony@WeSellPekin.com or call me at 309-208...

"Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."   I wish I knew who said this.  We all have times of uncertainty, it is how we face those times that defines who we are.  I always try to remember that I am not the only one who faces problems from time to time.  I will also say that there have been times that I wish I had acted differently, we all have had times like that I am sure, but I try to remember this quote and do the right thing.  Just thought I would share.

I just found a new search engine because of a sales call from them.  It combines Google, Yahoo, YouTube and more with many interesting features you do not normally find on a search engine.  From What I have seen, it will make searching faster as it makes suggestions as you type, plus the scroll over feature is a strong enhancement. Check it out http://www.leapfish.com I normally use Google as my search engone, I think I am going to give this a shot!

It's tax season again and thoughts of home ownership weigh heavily on the minds of renters and other prospective homebuyers. Renters are often apprehensive about the financial responsibility of owning a home. WeSellPekin.com wants to remind taxpayers that ownership, rather than renting, offers financial benefits. Below are tax incentives for home ownership, but as always, taxpayers should seek the advice of a financial professional: Deductible property taxes and interest. Most homeowners can deduct property taxes and interest paid on their mortgage for each year of ownership. Borrowing against equity. Homeowners can borrow against the equity they have built up in their homes. Equity from a home can be used to improve the property, buy a car or pay for education.  Real estate tax exempti...
Trying to sell a home and buy one at the same time can be a challenging task. Many home buyers find themselves caught in a difficult position as they often cannot place an offer on a desired home and simultaneously sell their current one. Below are some tips from WeSellPekin.com on how to close the gap between buying and selling a home:Consider bridge loans. A bridge loan means borrowing from the current home's equity until the proceeds from its sale are obtained. Some bridge loans require that only the interest be repaid; others mandate a single payment of interest and principal when the loan needs to be paid back. If protracted, bridge loans can be expensive, so it is best to use them for overlaps of a short period of time between closings. Buy on contingency. Have a prior-sale contin...

  Jim Gillespie, president and CEO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, participated in a discussion about the state of the housing market last Friday, live from the New York Stock Exchange on CNBC. The segment, "Roadmap to Rebound," was hosted by Maria Bartiromo. Other participants included, Yale economist Dr. Robert Schiller and Sanjiy Das, CEO of CitiMortgage, and Tony Fratto, CNBC contributor.  Jim called upon government leaders to enact a $15,000 non-refundable tax credit to ALL buyers and also a mortgage buy down that would bring rates to the 4-4.5% range which NAR reports could generate an additional 840,000 home sales over 12 months.  This home buying activity would have major implications in stimulating the overall US economy since NAR also reports that each home sold generates...
