 Low Ball Offers When the subject of selling your home to an investor comes up usually one topic leads the conversation.  Why would I want to entertain an offer when they only offer low ball offers?  This is a question that many homeowners ask and a stigma real estate investors try to shake.  In this post I'm going to try my best to sell you on why low ball offers aren't bad for everyone. First let's step out of the real estate world completely for a minute.  Instead of real estate lets place ourselves on the car lot of your dreams in your city.  You know exactly the make and model of the car that you are looking for.  You've also researched and have a pretty good idea of the price range it's going to cost you.  For the sake of this article, lets say the car costs between $80 - $90K.  Y...

  The Golden Years  Some of the things we all should look forward to in life is aging gracefully and living life to the fullest. When I say living life to the fullest I mean looking back when you are in your late years and having a huge smile on your face.  Memories of having all of the family together at your home for the holiday's or special events are priceless.   When all of the kids have left to start their own families and you're deep into retirement a certain set of decisions may arise.  Do We Still Want To Live In This Big House or Downsize? There may come a time when taking care of that 5 bedroom 3 bath house is too much.  On top of that you have grown tired of mowing that huge lawn.  If you don't have someone to maintain eveything for you downsizing may be the best option.Down...

 Congrats, it looks like you've finally made the hard decision to sell your house or rental property here in Memphis Tennessee.  You've burned the midnight oil searching google and other reputable sites on the ways to sell your home.  After a long but careful process you've decided to sell your home to a local real estate investment company.  Being able to sell your home fast for cash seemed to be the best fit for your situation.  Before you pick up your phone to reach out to one of those companies there are 4 questions you need to answer first. Is The Deed Of Your Home In Your Name? In order to sell a home, your name has to be listed on the deed of the property.  There may also be situations where co owner names are also listed on the deed such as spouses or siblings.

 Have you ever driven by a large apartment complex in your city and really paid attention to the layout?  Just like the picture above, you will find multiple units that all look similar from the exterior.  No single unit really stands out from any of the others at first glance. It's not until you start viewing the interiors of each apartment that you will start to see the differences. The same preconceived notion can be held sometimes for realtors, investors and real estate businesses.  That we all are the same and cut from the same cloth.  In a sense I can understand why a potential client may see all investors or real estate agents as the same.  We all are providing the same exterior services which is to be a source of help for homeowners who are looking to sell or buy a home.  If you...

                                                             No matter how many property's you own, deals you've closed this month or revenue you've earned those things will never have more value than time.  If you look around the world, you can find tons of millionaires and 2,825 billionaires.  The one thing that you will not find though is a Timeunaire.(Disclaimer: I just googled "timeunaire" and nothing came back in the search results.  I think I just created a new word so remember you saw it here first)                 No man, woman or child can take the title of having the most time.  The main reason being, because tomorrow isn't promised to any of us.  That's why the title of this post should garner everyone attention and make us all realize that time spent on the things important...

                                               Along with every person in this world comes different personalities, dreams, likes and interests.  Not everyone likes frosted flakes or the movie saving private ryan.  When you think about it, it's hard to find one thing that everyone likes or has in common with each other.  One thing that every person looks for though is opportunity.  Whether that opportunity be in the form of advancing in your career, getting a tryout for the sport of your choice or freedom in general.  We all want the chance to be able to achieve all of our goals that we set for ourselves.  After setting those goals and starting on your journey you need to make sure you're prepared for one key thing.  When opportunity knocks you need to make sure that you are ready to op...

  In your city you may receive marketing material or see advertisements for company's stating that they buy homes in your area.  At first glance, some people may think that it's some sort of scam to steal your home but it's not.  Real estate investors are behind those brands and provide needed solutions for certain homeowners and landlords who need to sell their house or property fast.  I'm one of those investors here in the Memphis Tn market and I want to list some of the benefits of selling your home to a real estate investment company vs listing on the MLS.    NO LISTING OR AGENT FEE'SWhen selling your home the traditional way the listing agent commission fee is usually one of the biggest fee's a seller will have to pay.   The expected fee you pay will usually be between 5 to 6 perce...

 Give & Take I was getting ready to start marketing in a new zip code here in Memphis when I was asked a very good question that made me stop and think.  A member of my team asked what could we give to this particular community compared to just taking from it.  Before she asked this question my mind was only in acquire/take mode.   After hearing, I had to step back and take a few minutes to reflect. When running a business it's easy to get caught up in the taking but we also need to focus on the giving.  Figuring out how you can help in area's that have nothing to do with your business is a challenge but definitely something that can be done.  With it also being days away from Thanksgiving it really hit home.  After brainstorming, I came up with a few things that we all can do when it c...

Simple Fun One of the games that I enjoyed playing as a kid and even to this day is Tic Tac Toe.  All that is needed is piece of paper, a pencil and an opponent and you can have some competitive fun.  To win, all you needed to do was get three X's or three O's in a straight, horizontal or diagonal pattern.  It sounds simple right?  But I've never met a person who is undefeated in the game.  All it takes is an X placed in the right/wrong place and you will have to rethink your whole strategy and possibly lose that match.  This same ideology exist in the real estate world. Barriers Instead of X's and O's you are going to have Peter's and Joe's who may place barriers in your way to success.  Nothing in life is going to be easy so why would you expect anything different in the path to succe...

 Which Approach Should You Take? When you decide to become a business owner there are so many how, why and what questions that are going to come up that it's not even funny.  No longer will you have the luxury of having those questions answered and analyzed by someone else.  Both the mirror and the spot light is now squarely on you and it's time for you to make some major decisions that will either make or break your business.    Being on the investor side of real estate, one of the most important questions you will ask yourself is how will you find leads.  What strategies and methods will you use to find homeowners who are looking to sell their home?  How are you going to make yourself and your brand stand out from the competition in your market?  I do business in the Memphis market wh...

 Becoming a homeowner in Memphis Tennessee is a goal that a lot of people have on their bucket list.  It definitely was on my list and I was able to check it off at the age of 25. There's nothing like owning a home, decorating it to your liking, cutting the lawn and seeing that mortgage payment deducted from your bank account each month. Over the period of owning a home there may come a time unfortunately when you may need to sell your home.  All types of emotions and questions will be running through your mind during this time.  What price should I list the home at?  What agency or agent should I use to list the home?  What repairs do I need to make in order to get a full offer? These are all valid questions minus one specific one that some homeowners may ask. That being, how can I sel...

 October Hi ActiveRainer's how is everyone out there?   I hope everyone is safe and business is thriving.  Every since the NBA Finals ended with the Los Angles Lakers winning the title I've been in a championship type of mood.  That mood has led me to create an October Challenge I would like to issue to everyone.   I took the word OCTOBER tonight and I wanted to see how many words could I create using the letters in October.  I don't want to TOOT MY HORN but I was able to create 17 words and I'm not sure anyone will be able to beat that.  My challenge to you is to see  how many words you are able to create.  I will reveal, upon request the 17 words I created for any doubters or pouters. Let's have some creative October Fun for a few minutes and take your mind off the  serious stuff that...

 If you clicked on this weeks blog looking for a sneak peak on the next toy offering from McDonald's you may be disappointed.  The motivational factor behind this post was thrusted upon me while doing a little pre winter cleaning in my daughter's room.   As we were going through her play area and toy bin getting rid of old dolls and toys I  pulled out 9 of those little toys that come in happy meals.  Some were still in the plastic and had never been opened.  As I was looking at them I started wondering how did the golden arches go about selecting the toys?  How do they know which item will have kids begging their parents to go spend money on them?  I knew some where tied to cartoon movies that may have been out at the time but what about the others.  I have to tip my hat to the marketin...

  House Sold Now What's Next? Going through the process of selling your home has been a roller coaster ride full of emotions.  Now that negotiations are over and you have a closing date scheduled its now time to focus in on packing up your home for the move. You pick up your phone, call some of your friends and try your best to bribe them into helping you move in the next few weeks.  Instead of getting an ok you get hit with more excuses than a landlord trying to collect rent during coronavirus.  What do you do now?Do you then pull your hair out, delete all of their numbers from your phone or go to PLAN B? The PLAN B in this situation would be to get to googling to find the best and most affordable moving company in your city.  That's right it's hiring time.  I was told by a wise person...
