 (Chris the Landlord) Hi this is Chris calling to notify that due to non payment of rent these last two months we are going to move forward with assigning a move out date for you. (Tenant) Is there anyway I could possibly have a few more weeks to get you the rent money? (Chris the Landlord) Unfortunately we've exhausted all options due to the default of  terms agreed upon in our lease agreement. (Tenant) Ok, I understand.  Give me 48 hours to move all of my things out of the house and clean up the place and I'll be gone. (Chris the Landlord) Ok no problem! (48 hours later) You arrive to your rental property, open the door and you have the above surprise waiting for you. The shock of what you see and smell causes you to sit down and really evaluate if you want to continue to be a landlor...

 If you're in the field of real estate I'm almost certain you've heard the words nope, no thank you or not interested.  These words may have been followed by a door being swiftly closed in your face, an unexpected dial tone or a few ear ticklers being spewed. In real estate, sales or life in general you are going to have to deal with rejection.  Fellas, do you remember the times when you were in high school and you walked over to a young lady and asked for her phone number?  There may have been times where she wrote down the number and gave you a smile or you could have gotten the infamous "Sorry I'm Not Interested" reply.   If you got the lather, it may have hurt and your pride may have taken a hit but you didn't quit.  You got back on that horse and started the process over again.  Th...

Should Model Homes Be Sold At A Discount? Good morning ladies and gents!  Today's post is going to be a little different from me.  Instead of this being an informative post I want to make this more of a "what's your thought on this" type post.  Yesterday I was out looking at homes in the Cordova Tn area and I stopped to go view a model home that caught my eye.  There were two groups of people already there when I arrived who were also doing a walk through of the home.  Because the house was nice and in a great neighborhood I'm sure many people have been in the home to view it.  It made me wonder, with so much traffic going in and out of the home for an extended period of time should that model home be listed for a discount compared to a newly constructed home?    Are These Good Reason's...

 What Are Two Ways To Separate Yourself From The Competition? Depending on the size of the city you live in, if you're a real estate investor or wholesaler you are going to have competition for leads and deals.  For some people the thought of competition may scare or detour you from your goals.  For others it brings out the best in them and makes them rise to the occasion.  Depending on which route you take, if you want to be successful you will need to find ways to separate yourself from everyone else.  Two of those ways that I want to expound on are personality and people skills. PersonalityThe dictionary definition of personality is the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individuals distinctive character.  In my opinion personality can't be defined.  It's someth...

  Memphis Tennessee: Get A Barbecue Sandwich   With A Side Of Real Estate  When you think of Memphis Tennessee what are some of the things that come to mind?  Perhaps Elvis Presley, the Memphis Grizzlies, FedEx, St Jude or our countless restaurants serving up some of the best barbecue in the world.  When I think about Memphis I think of her as being my second home and a place that has built toughness, character and a get off yo ass and go get it mentality.  Nothing is given everything is earned is the majority mindset of the nearly 700,000 residents here in Memphis.  Along with the great food and southern hospitality also comes opportunities to get involved in both the commercial and residential real estate market here in town. Commercial Real Estate Opportunities  If you live in Memphi...

 Passive Income Ideas: Become A Landlord Ready For The Highs & Lows What is passive income?  Some people may not have heard of this term but it is something that everyone should familiarize themselves with.  Passive income in a nutshell is the process of being able to make money while you're sleep.  That's right, when you're getting those Zzzz's your bank account should be collecting those G's.  With a normal job, in order to earn money you have to work long 8+ hour shifts, 5 days a week to collect a paycheck.  Sometimes that work can be back breaking, time consuming or just something that you don't enjoy doing.  One goal that all of us should strive to accomplish is finding a way to make additional income.  One of those ways is to become a Landlord.  With there being an influx of young...

 Selling A Home While Social Distancing In Memphis Tennessee 2020 introduced the world to the term Coronavirus and the serious repercussions that come along with this virus.  It doesn't discriminate and has effected our schools, businesses, churches, sports and every day way of living our lives.  I never imagined having to live through an epidemic where I could literally touch a random door knob and it could possibly change my life or a family members life forever.  Scary isn't it?  But this is our reality until we are able to find a cure or vaccine. Before the epidemic hit, I would be out networking or meeting new clients on a daily basis.  Shaking hands, giving fist bumps or issuing church hugs were the normal(teaching moment: example of a church hug below).       Now fast forward to ...

 Texting Is A Quick Solution But People Love To Hear Your VoiceAt one point in my life I was a Gold Medalist Texter.  My thumbs could fire off a laundry list of words like the picture above in seconds.  I didn't realize I was a habitual texter until a close friend of mines stated "texting is fine Chris but I prefer to hear your voice".  She opened my eyes that even though texting is a fast way to communicate most people, especially in the business world prefer to hear your voice. Things To Avoid Doing Over TextAs an investor who finds and buys homes in the Memphis Tennessee market negotiating prices with homeowners is an important task.  It's also a task that I would never do over a text message.  If I was a homeowner negotiating with an investor to sell my home I would expect to do it ...

  How Often Should We Update Our Real Estate Website?Is my profile pic dated? Do I have the correct keywords in my H1 heading? Does our message on our website still fit our targeted market?  These questions along with wondering how often should we update our company website can lead to some anxiety filled moments. When you look at large company websites like CNN or Apple the content on their websites are always being updated daily.  That's understandable though with the content being news and technology which are always changing.  But what about the small businesses that have an online presence also.  What should be our schedule for creating and updating content on our websites?  I really don't have the be all, end all answer to that question but I can give my two cents on the subject. ...

 Avoiding Negative Thoughts And People.  Fight Through Or Join The Crowd Before you read another word of this post take a second and look at the picture above.  Take yourself back to the moment in your life where it was you you standing at the beginning of your journey.  Now think about all of the obstacles that you had in front of you that either seemed overwhelming and made you want to quit or instead motivated you to bust through, work harder and become the successful person you are today. When I saw this picture it hit home and I knew I wanted to use it for my next post.  It spoke to me because I'm still working and manuvering my way up that path to reach all of my goals.  As you guys know, being in the real estate world is not easy at all.  It takes knowledge, patience, relationshi...

 What Does SEO, Backlinks & Domain Authority Mean? Two years ago if you would have asked me what was SEO, Backlinks or Domain Authority I would have had the following look on my face It's funny now as I think back because I had no idea how important those items were for getting your business found by customers.  I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with these terms.  For those of you who may not, give me a few minutes to share what I've learned. SEO(Search Engine Optimization) is the process of building and wording your website content in a way that people searching for your services on sites such as Google or Bing can find you on the first landing page.  A landing page on Google would be the first results you see if you were searching for a specific topic.  So for instance, if someone wa...

What Does It Mean To Wholesale Real Estate?  Memphis Investor Explains I'm sure you've heard the term fix & flippers and buy & holders but what about wholesalers?  What does wholesaling real estate mean?  Does it mean buying homes in bulk like we buy toilet paper at our local Sam's or Costco stores?  What role does a wholesaler play in the real estate world?  Can you make a living wholesaling real estate?  All of these are questions you may have asked yourself before or may have been curious about.  When I first got an interest in real estate I was introduced to the term wholesaling real estate and I was asking those same questions.  Now two years later I have a clear understanding of the terms and wanted to take a moment to share with other's who may be interested as well. Wholesaling ...

                                                                                                                                                                   If a real estate tax is levied for a current calendar year, payable during that year or in the coming year, the period from January 1st to the date of closing, or the day before closing, if you're in a state which excludes the sale date, we're dealing with what is commonly known as the accrued portion. Just what is the accrued portion and how do we deal with the math? If the current tax bill "ain't in the mail" the parties at closing have to agree on a fiqure which is estimated based on last years bill. That doesn't relieve you of the obligation to know if there have been any changes in the assessment rate for the current year...

I penned this six years ago. Has anything really changed.....?   The trap has sprung. The Fed keeps lowering the lending rate. Has it signed a death sentence for the economy? For cash-strapped homeowners, their worst nightmare is about to happen. They're going to refinance their mortgages at bargain rates again, thanks to the Fed's beneficence, and think that they can cut their payments in half. Low documentation and low downpayment scams are going to resurface their ugly heads for new borrowers. Those who take the bait are in for a nasty surprise. While many Americans have started to worry about falling home prices, borrowers who jumped into so-called option and hybrid ARM loans have another, more urgent problem: payments are about to skyrocket. The pain will be borne by ordinary peopl...
