When Achieving Goals, Don't Go Half-Vast! Attempting anything half-vast can mean the difference between a favorable outcome or missing out on amazing business opportunities. Minimal effort by winging it or sheer lack of commitment is a set up for failure. Who wants that? Success takes: real work  sincere interest  an enthusiastic attitude    Turn problems into challenges, find solutions quickly, forgo complaining, people will tune you out eventually. Ask for help, there is no stupid question and assistance may be just an answer away.  When business becomes brisk, continue to feed the pipeline and pursue work, it will not magically appear. So, avoid half-vast efforts when people are depending on you to help guide them to success.     Had the turtle been lackadaisical, he would have lost ...

This Saturday marks the 99th anniversary of the end of World War I. What began as Armistice Day in 1919 has morphed into the Veterans Day that we know today. It's a time to honor the millions of brave American men and women who fought for our country. One of the benefits military members receive comes in the form of a VA loan. When buying a St George home, current and former military members in good standing can purchase their home with a VA loan. What is a VA Loan? A VA loan is a special type of mortgage loan granted only to military members (both current and retired). While they aren't an actual mortgage company, the Veterans Administration guarantees up to 25% of your St George home loan (with a max loan amount of $424,100). You still need to meet certain income and credit requiremen...

Oftentimes, when buying a home, you run through a whole gamut of emotions: excitement at the prospect of a new home, happiness in finding just the right one, worry about whether the home will make it through all the steps needed to complete the transaction and contentment when you are handed the keys and get to move in. Somewhere between "finding the right one" and "completing the transaction", you must sign a contract. In that contract is where contingencies need to be laid out. However, not all contingencies are alike. This week's tip for St. George Home Buyers is the contingency plan.St. George Home Buyers: The Contingency PlanThere are both positives and negatives to adding contingencies to your St. George home sale contract. On one hand, they allow you to legally back out if a cont...

Complete trust is mutually inclusive. Every morning at the home office, Ashley, our 18 year old 'sometimes in - sometimes outside' cat climbs into my lap. Soon she sets to purring as I gently knead her furry head and body until she falls asleep. This has become our daily ritual. She holds a special place in my heart. Growing up with the boys, she often walked them to the bus stop. They are both grown now, living on their own. p.s. I think she is too! Haruki Murakam said it best..."Holding this soft, small living creature in my lap this way, though, and seeing how it slept with complete trust in me, I felt a warm rush in my chest. I put my hand on the cat's chest and felt his heart beating. The pulse was faint and fast, but his heart, like mine, was ticking off the time allotted to his s...

You gotta stop and smell the... ...roses.  Going round and round the roundabout, I had to pull over on a side road to get a shot of this colorful landscape. It reminded me of Mac Davis's song, Stop and Smell the Roses. The song started in my head and before you know it, I was humming it for the rest of the afternoon. Happy Saturday all! ................................................... Questions about homes to buy or sell in the southern Utah area? Please contact me, I'll be glad to help because Wanda Can! Your preferred southern Utah Real Estate Specialist, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin ~ 435.632.9374A portion of every successful real estate transaction goes to Bed 'n' Biscuits to help fund Switchpoint, a local homeless shelter.
