Selecting A Builder for Your New Home

Hi, and welcome back to the Envision.

Home At Last.

video series.

Today, I’m going to talk to you about selectingyour builder.

And to start out with, what you’ll want to do is think about the size, style, and the price range of the house you intend to build.

What this will do.

it's going to allow you to narrow down your selection of builders.

After you narrowed your search a littlebit, now what I recommend is, attending home shows, parade of homes, or open houses soyou can not only meet the builder but take a home that they’ve built.

Another step is to talk to friends and relativeswho’ve already built.

They’ll be happy to refer a builder ontoyou if they had a good experience.

That being said, if they didn’t have a goodexperience they’re going to let you know about that too.

So keep in mind, a builder’s reputationis built by word of mouth.

If they do a good job, you will know aboutit.

Now your next will be to contact the buildersthat you’d like to talk with and set up an interview.

And there’s certain things that you’regonna want to ask.

First and foremost, you’ll want to knowhow long has the contractor been in business and how many homes have they built? You’ll wanna ask…how they operate theirbusiness? Do they build or do they design build? And we’ve talked about the importance of design build in the past, I’m a big fan of design build because what that does is it allows you to build yourhome…within budget and you’re always going to start off on the right foot with the builder.

Does the builder build custom homes or dothey only build out of a certain library of plans? What types of projects tend to be in theirwheelhouse? What sets them apart from their competitors? During construction you’ll want to knowwho you’ll need to talk to as your point of contact.

Is it the builder that you’re interviewingor is there a project manager? What if you have questions or you make certaindecisions or you want to change something? How is that process handled? How are change orders handled and when willpricing be completed and is that number guaranteed? You’ll also want to know how long it willtake to build your house.

By giving the contractor an idea of what it is you intend to build, they should be able to tell you, approximately, how long it will taketo construct.

And in the end, who will be involved in thepunch list process? What that is, is before you move in, the buildersare going to go through the home and make sure all the little details are taken careof.

Another concern will be regarding warrantyissues.

After you move in, you’re going to findcertain things that are gonna need to be either fixed or tweaked to your liking.

You want to work with a builder that you knowyou can count on to come back to help you out.

The final piece of the puzzle? Ask that builder for three references.

You’ll want to contact homeowners that thiscontractor has built for in the past.

Now when you contact these homeowners, askthem about their overall satisfaction.

Are they happy with the construction? Were they happy with the builder before, during,and after the build? Ask them if they’d refer this contractoronto a friend or relative? Also, ask them if you can see the home.

That allows you to get in and take a look at the quality and craftsmanship that was put into the house.

So, you’re now at the point where you’vedone your research, you’ve gathered your information, you’ve talked to homeowners, and it’s time to make a decision.

The one question to ask yourself is, who doyou trust most to build your home? And what I will tell you is this, trust yourgut.

Keep in mind, you’re about to enter intoa relationship and what you want to decide is, who do you trust to build your home? Well, I hope you found this information helpful.

I’m Trying to Sell a Home – What are the Essentials in a For Rent Deal?

Hey, it's Joe.

Another question.

This is abouthow to talk to sellers and how to get your deals together.

This question is, "What mustyou have in a for rent deal in order for you to be able to sell the home?" Those thingsare the monthly payment must be at or below market rent.

If you don't, if you get themonthly payment wrong, it's not going to sell.

I guarantee it.

It won't sell.

Don't evenwaste your time.

If the monthly payment is not at or below market rent on a lease optionit will not sell.

B, You need a sign in the yard.

Sign in theyard will bring you in 25% of your buyers.

It's really important to have that sign inthe yard.

You can sell it with just a Craigslist ad or just a Postlets ad, but having thatsign in the yard will speed up the process dramatically and also make it easy for peopleto be able to find the property when they go out and look for it.

You know, if they'redriving out to look for it and there's no sign in the yard it's hard for you, hard forthem to find it.

Another is C, third way, is you don't allowyour seller to rent it while you're trying to rent it.

Now, the lease option memo, thefirst one that I'm giving you if you're using the Automarketer, is one that says they can,they have the right to go out and rent it themselves or sell it themselves, and youknow, cut us out of the deal.

They have the right to do that as long as they don't takeour leads.

What I would suggest as you get better at this is if they're trying to rentthe property to ask them would you give me 30 days to try to do this before you try torent it.

Let me get a buyer tenant in there instead of a regular tenant.

They're goingto be better tenants, you know, you don't wash a rental car.

You take better care ofthe things that you own, or at least you think you're going to own.

So let's sell it to alease option person.

Give me a little bit of time to that.

Will you allow me to do that?And most of the time they'll say yes.

Because if they don't, it's sometimes a little biteasier to rent a property than to lease option it and so they might be faster at it.

Plus,if they're pricing it at a different price than you are, that screws you up as well becausethey may have an ad in Craigslist right next to yours that has a lower price or a lowermonthly payment on it and that's not going to be effective.

The other thing that you need is a Craigslist ad.

The Craigslist ad is where you're goingget most of your buyers total.

So you've got to make sure that Craigslist ad is ghostedand by ghosting, that means that you post that ad and it sends you back an email sayinghey, your ad is posted.

And you click on that link and there it is, there's your ad andit looks great.

But then if you go into Craigslist through the front door and you look for thatad it's not there.

That's ghosting your ad.

And they do that for different reasons.

Ifthey think you're spam or if they think that you're using, if you're posting it from outsidetheir area, and usually I find that if you're within a state normally you can get your adto be posted.

If you're out two, three or four states away,you know, if I try to, if I'm in Indiana and I try to post in California, my ad gets flaggedalmost immediately or it gets ghosted immediately just because of the IP address of where I'mat and posting, it can recognize that and it won't allow me to post in California.

SoI have to have somebody in California to post that for me in order to make that ad work.

That's why you need boots on the ground sometimes in an area that you're not working in becauseyou need them to post your Craigslist ad for you as well.

So those are the vital things that you need in order to sell a property once you've gotan lease option memo on it.

If you screw up any of those things you probably won't getit sold.

The other thing that screws up a lot of propertydeals is that you lose faith from your seller.

They lose faith in you.

Or they don't thinkyou're competent, or they think you know, you're just not doing a good job and so theygo off and do something else and they say, no, I'm not really interested, or they don'ttake your calls anymore, or they take your sign out of the yard.

And that happens usuallybecause they've lost faith in you.

So do a good job, do a good job for them, you know,make sure you're trying to help them and learn to be competent.

Learn to speak competently.

All right.

Hope that helps.

Tips to sell your home for top dollar

SPRING IS THE START OF PEAK HOME SELLING SEASON.

LISA HAS SOME TIPS ON HOW TO GET THE MOST MONEY.

RIGHT NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO GET YOUR HOME READY FOR BUYERS.

APRIL THROUGH JUNE IS THE PRIME BUYING SEASON.

CONSUMER REPORTS HAS SOME WAYS THAT YOU CAN BOOST YOUR VALUE.

WE ARE LIVE WITH THE DETAILS THIS MORNING.

GOOD MORNING, GREAT TO BE HERE.

LET'S SAY YOU ARE ASSESSING YOUR HOME.

WHAT ARE THE TOP THINGS YOU SHOULD DO TO GET YOUR HOME READY? WE SURVEYED MORE THAN 300 REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS AND ASK THEM JUST THAT WESTERN.

A COUPLE OF THINGS ROSE TO THE TOP, BUT THROUGHOUT THE HOME, IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO DE-CLUT TER AND DEPERSONALIZE.

THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO IMAGINE THEMSELVES IN YOUR HOME.

THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THAT IF EVERYTHING IS ON THE WALLS.

ANYTHING THAT REPRESENTS YOUR FAMILY, WHAT YOU DO FOR FUN, TAKE ALL OF THAT OUT? EXACTLY.

I AM SURE YOU HAVE THE CUTEST KIDS IN THE WORLD, BUT THOSE BUYERS DO NOT NECESSARILY WANT TO SEE THEM.

IF YOU HAD TW ROOMS TO FOCUS ON, WHICH WOULD YOU FOCUS ON, AND WHICH WEDGEWOOD YOU POUR MONEY INTO — WHICH ONES WOULD YOU POUR MONEY INTO? FIRST THE KITCHEN.

IT IS A CLICHE THAT THE KITCHEN SELLS THE HOUSE, BUT IT IS PARTLY TRUE.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO RENOVATE THE WHOLE KITCHEN, BUT A FEW SMART THINGS LIKE PAINTING THE CABINETS, PUTTING IN NEW CURTAINS.

IF IT IS SEVERELY OUTDATED, INVESTING IN NEW APPLIANCES, WHICH YOU CAN DO FOR UNDER $2000.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ABOUT COUNTERTOPS, IS IT WORTH IT TO UPGRADE, OR FOCUS ON THE WALLS AND APPLIANCES? IF THE COUNTERTOPS ARE VERY OLD AND BEAT UP, IT CAN BE A WORTHWHILE INVESTMENT.

THERE ARE SOME VERY INEXPENSIVE OPTIONS.

LAMINATE HAS GOTTEN A LOT BETTER LOOKING.

THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE INSTANT MAKEOVER WITHOUT BREAKING YOUR BUDGET.

THE EXTERIOR IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE INTERIOR, ISN'T IT? YES, FIRST IMPRESSIONS.

MOW THE LAWN, TRIM THE SHRUBS.

A FRESH COAT OF PAINT ON THE FRONT DOOR CAN REALLY IMPROVE THE CURB APPEAL.

THE ROOF IS ANOTHER THING.

IF IT IS OLD, THAT IS THE FIRST THING EVERY BUYER ASKS ABOUT.

IT MAY COST YOU SOME MONEY, BUT IN OUR SURVEY, WE FOUND YOU COULD GET $10,000 TO $15,000 BACK IN TERMS OF THE ASKING PRICE.

5 Tips to Sell Your Home for More

hey guys this is Jennifer De Vivo realty and today i'm coming to you with my five top tips on how to list and sell or get ready to sell your property this year so if you're thinking about selling your property you're probably thinking oh my goodness where do I start if you're like me your house is probably crazy sometimes so here's five things that you can kind of get in your head when you're thinking about selling this year number one is we always talk about is to declutter and I know you've heard about this and it what does it mean to declutter your house well it means taking anywhere from one third to two-thirds of the things that you have in your home out of your house what are we doing in real estate we are selling the space we are selling the potential for someone to come in and move into your home and bring their own things so they need to be able to visualize themselves living there and I tell people if you're really believing that you're going to sell your home this year and you have a great agent that gives you a great marketing plan go ahead and start moving and starting to move means going ahead and decluttering and taking one-third to maybe even two thirds of your stuff out of the house and if you don't have anywhere to put it you could get a pod you could get a utility you could get a storage if all else fails you could use your garage so number one declutter number two depersonalize so maybe you've gone ahead and you've decluttered and you've taken a lot of stuff and you can see a lot of space in your home now you want to maybe take down some of those specialty items that people can get touchy about this but people again buyers want to come in and visualize themselves living in your home and so if you've got a lot of family pictures you may want to scale that down if you've got a lot of specialty artwork or bright colors you may want to go ahead and tone those down one thing that we like to think of is neutral or think of a model home go to look at builders go into some of these model homes and you will oh my gosh i can see myself living here i want to live here and what the designers are doing is that they are depersonalizing the home they are creating a neutral environment with some accent pieces that kind of invite you to live in the space so number two depersonalize number three let in the light and this is one of my very favorite ones you want to open up those windows you want to take down those curtains or put them to the side you want to open up those blinds light is what shows the space and so oftentimes I go into gorgeous homes and you go in there and it's like a cave or when I go to show a home and I'm representing a buyer and I open the door and I try to show the home, the home is very dark sometimes lights don't work you try to show a bedroom or master bedroom light is not turning on so definitely get the brightest lights in the rooms where perhaps you don't have a big window perhaps you can't let in the light so let in the light and number four would be curb appeal when i'm driving by your home your home should be like stop look at me come up my driveway or come up my walkway and open my beautiful door a lot of times buyers are making maybe up to half of their decision just based on the exterior of your home so get your yard ready maybe put some inviting flowers if you're in florida sometimes you know flowers die very quickly we have a lot of heat you might want to get some hardy plants that are bright colored if you know me you know I love crotons any kind of tropical plant or anything that's just going to bring in some color and personality to your yard and pay attention to your door, the door is the first thing we're going to open so nicely brightly or fresh colored door is going to be something that is going to be inviting as we're standing there and we're getting ready to go into your home and the last tip that I would give you would be staging or stage coaching one of the things that I specialize in here at the people realty is coming to your home and creating an action plan to get your home ready to sell we don't just slap your home on the market we want you to sell for more every time and so we go room by room and we create an action plan and we integrate design principles and maybe things that you need to do to get your home ready to sell so that you can sell for the top dollar you can sell for the most in your neighborhood and we do that every single time it's something that we take pride in so again just to kind of recap some of the tips that you can do to get your home ready to list and sell this year is to declutter, depersonalize let in the light, drive up that curb appeal make that yard gorgeous and do some staging or hire a realtor who does stage coaching like me or even a real professional stager who brings in their own interior-design who might bring in their own pieces for my bringing their own furniture in some special cases again this is Jennifer with De Vivo Realty helping you find your way home and we hope that you sell for more this year.

Renting Vs. Homeownership: Which Is Better for YOU?

Hey! So is it better to rent, or is it betterto buy a home? That is the question that virtually everybody asks themselves at one point.

Well,guess what? We here at How To Adult have an answer for you, and that answer is.

It depends.

It depends on you.

It depends on things such as your desired lifestyle and your finances.

So here are a few things to consider to help you answer that question.

Part 1: Lifestyle.

So maybe you'll see yourselfreflected in some of these things.

Let's talk renter's lifestyle.

Renters tend to move aroundmore.

Renters are free to chase job opportunities in other cities or states.

They don't haveto spend their nights and weekends having to do maintenance work on their house or theirlawn, but they do tend to pay for that luxury in the form of, on average, higher monthlyhousing payments.

What about the homeowner's lifestyle? Well,homeowners tend to be more settled, like owning a house is typically thought of as puttingdown roots.

Transaction costs of buying and selling a home are high.

So it's not a goodidea to do it often.

In fact, the average house needs five years of appreciation toearn out the closing and selling costs.

At the same time, that stability can be reallynice for people with kids or with pets or people who need that sense of consistencyin their lives.

As long as they're not breaking any rules or laws, homeowners are free torenovate or upgrade their house, which is something that, in general, renters are notable to do.

So if you're someone that really likes to make a place your own, then, like,owning a home might be for you.

(P.

S.

Let me know in the comments, does anybodyelse watch Rehab Addict? I know it started in, like, 2009, but, guess what? I just startedwatching Modern Family.

I'm usually about five to six years behind the curve.

I'm notgoing to do an impression right now, but I could.

You better believe I could.

) On the other hand, if spending your weekendspainting a fence or whatever, if that sounds like torture to you, then you've got threeoptions.

One, hire that work out.

Two, just plan on continuing to rent.

Or three, becomeTom Sawyer, which is what I'm doing.

Part 2: Finances.

Renters typically have highermonthly housing payments, but they don't usually have any other out-of-pocket maintenance costs.

And some of those costs can get really big, really fast.

Really big, really fast.

Oncea renter signs a lease, their monthly payments are locked in, so you don't have to have,like, big emergency maintenance funds if you are a renter.

Homeowners, meanwhile, do enjoy that lowermonthly payment, but they still have to deal with getting a new roof every ten years anda new water heater every seven years, and etc.

Renters may enjoy a locked-in monthlyrent payment for the one or two years that their lease runs, but homeowners tend to havea locked-in monthly mortgage payment that doesn't change for thirty years.

So, think about that for one second.

Imagineif you could freeze your rent so that it never goes up for the next thirty years, and thenafter those thirty years of paying rent have passed, they go away forever, and you havethis thing that is worth a lot of money.

That is the life of the homeowner.

Now it is at this point in the conversationthat many renters will bring up property taxes, specifically how they don't have to pay them.

That's true, but the landlord isn't just going to eat the cost.

Renters do pay property tax,maintenance, landscaping, it's just that all of those costs are built in to your monthlyrent.

Also, homeowners can think of their principalpayments going towards the mortgage every month as a kind of forced savings.

While rentersonly get shelter in return for their monthly payments, homeowners get shelter and buildequity.

Down the line, this equity can be tapped in the form of a home equity loan orline of credit, or can be returned to the homeowner when they sell the house to downsizeor move.

This "forced savings" is what many people refer to when they say a home is agreat investment.

So is being a homeowner always the right financialdecision? Not necessarily.

They usually have to save up a large down payment and that ismoney that is tied up in the house rather than working for them in, say, the stock market.

That's arguably what's called an opportunity cost, and it is something to consider.

So again, is it better to rent or buy? Thatis a question that can only be answered by you and your unique situation.

I hope that some of the points in this videowill help you make your own housing choice.

And if you do choose to buy, we're going tobe doing a "How to Buy a House" video in the future.

If you have any questions or tips,please let us know in the comments section below.

We would love to hear from you! AndI will see you guys soon! I love you, bye! Mwah!.

Affordable Housing Trends For 2016 – Rent vs. Own

>> Bob: WELCOME TO NORFOLKPERSPECTIVES CITY SLICE.

I'M BOB BATCHER.

WELL, IT'S THAT TIME WHERE YOU'RE KIND OF THINKING, WHAT'SMY FUTURE GOING TO BE WHEN IT COMES TO HOUSING.

SHOULD I RENT, SHOULD I BUY, CAN I AFFORD IT, CAN I AFFORD THERENT? WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING?I'M HEARING ALL KINDS OF THINGS.

WE HAVE TWO GUESTS ON TO SHEDSOME LIGHT ON YOUR FUTURE PLANNING.

HARVEY BILISOLY, REALTOR WITH THE REAL ESTATE GROUP, HOW YOUDOING? >> FINE.

THANK YOU, BOB.

>> Bob: AND JOE KERSEY, SENIORMORTGAGE BANKER WITH ATLANTIC BAY MORTGAGE GROUP.

BUY OR RENT, WHO WANTS TO ANSWER THAT ONE FIRST?>> SINCE JOE IS THE MORTGAGE BANKER, I'LL LET HIM OPEN WITHTHAT.

>> AT THIS POINT IN TIME, ITWOULD BE BUY.

WHEN DID YOU BUY YOUR FIRSTHOUSE? >> Bob: UNDER JIMMY CARTER'SPRESIDENCY IN 1980.

13% –>> SO OVER THE LAST 40 YEARS, THE AVERAGE RATE IS 8% ANDCURRENTLY WE'RE STILL SEEING RATES UNDER 4%, SO MAYBE THEYTICKED UP A QUARTER PERCENT IN THE LAST YEAR, THEY'RE STILLHISTORICALLY LOW, SO BY COMPARISON, WHEN YOU BOUGHT THATHOUSE BACK THEN, THE AMOUNT OF STWOUS FADE OVER THE LIFE –INTEREST YOU PAID OVER THE LIFE WOULD HAVE ALLOWED YOU TO BUYTWO OF THOSE HOUSES, WHEREAS NOW IT DEFINITELY MAKES A LOT MORESENSE TO TRY TO OWN A HOME.

THE AVERAGE RENT IN NORFOLK IS$1,071 A MONTH.

YOU COULD BUY A $100,000 HOME,YOUR PAYMENT WOULD BE AROUND 700 A MONTH.

YOU END UP WITH $70,000 OF EQUITY IN NET CASH AT THE END OFTEN YEARS VERSUS NOTHING AT THE END WITH THE RENTING, SO WHILEYOUR MONTHLY PAYMENT MIGHT BE A LITTLE CHEAPER ON THE RENT SIDE,THE FACT THAT YOU'RE BUILDING EQUITY AT THOSE LOW INTERESTRATES IS REALLY IS THE DRIVER OF THE HOME OWNERSHIP AND WHY YOUWANT TO TRY TO OWN VERSUS RENT.

>> Bob: CONVINCED ME.

>> LET ME PICK UP ON THAT.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RENTINGAND OWNING IS USUALLY 35% CHEAPER TO OWN IN THEMETROPOLITAN AREAS AND IN ALL 100 METROPOLITAN AREAS IN THEUNITED STATES, THE TOP 100, IT'S CHEAPER TO BUY THAN TO RENT.

SO WITH THE RATES AS JOE DESCRIBED, IT IS A GREAT TIMEAND WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO — GREAT TIME TO BUY AND WHAT WE'RETRYING TO DO IS EDUCATE BUYERS ON THE WAYS TO GO ABOUT FINDINGA HOME AND BUYING A HOME WITH THE RIGHT RATE AND SETTLING INTOTHE AMERICAN DREAM.

>> Bob: AND YOU MENTIONED THEAMERICAN DREAM AND THE REASON I BOUGHT THAT TOWNHOUSE WASBECAUSE I HAD GOTTEN MARRIED IN 1978, I WANTED TO GET A DOG, YOUONLY GET A DOG IF I — >> OWNED A PLACE.

>> Bob: HAD A FENCED-IN YARD AND MY DAD SAID GO FOR IT.

MY FIRST HOUSE PAYMENT I THINK WAS $561 A MORK NOT EVEN CLOSETO THAT NOW.

NOW AFTER WHATEVER WE WANT TOCALL IT, THE ECONOMIC BURP OR WHATEVER, THE MILLENNIALS AREMOVING AWAY FROM HOUSE PURCHASING AND GETTING INTOAPARTMENTS.

IT'S A LIFESTYLE.

>> IF YOU DON'T THINK YOU'RE GOING TO BE IN THE AREA MORETHAN FIVE YEARSING RENTING MIGHT NOT BE A BAD WAY TO GO.

>> Bob: WAIT A MINUTE, YOU'RE A MORTGAGE GUY.

>> I KNOW, BUT THERE'S A COST TO SELLING AND BUYING A PROPERTYAND YOU HAVE TO TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION, BUT IF YOU THINKYOU'RE GOING TO BE HERE AT LEAST FIVE YEARS — HERE'S THE OTHERSTATISTIC, YOU SAID AFTER THE BURP.

THE PROBLEM IS RIGHT NOW RENTS ARE RISING A LOT FASTER THANANYTHING ELSE.

>> Bob: BECAUSE OF THE DEMANDFOR RENTAL.

>> EXACTLY.

SO IF YOU SAY, HEY, MY RENT'S FINE RIGHT NOW, IN TEN YEARSFROM NOW, IT JUST — YOU KNOW, 4% CLIP, YOUR RENT IS GOING TOOUTPACE THAT.

THAT'S AGAIN, THE OTHER REASONWITH THE INTEREST RATES AS LOW AS THEY ARE AND THE FACTS THATHOUSES ARE NOW STARTING TO APPRECIATE AGAIN.

WE BASICALLY HIT THE — YOU KNOW, THE PEAK OF THE MARKET WAS2006 IN TERMS OF HOUSE PRICES AND WE BOTTOMED OUT IN 2011,SOME SAY 2011 TO 2013, BUT AS THE AMOUNT OF FORECLOSURES ANDSHORT SALES BEGIN TO COME OUT OF THE MARKET, YOU SEE HOUSE PRICESRISE AGAIN AND THAT'S YET ANOTHER REASON TO WANT TO TAKETHE STEP INTO HOME OWNERSHIP.

>> Bob: OKAY, CRAZY IDEA.

BECAUSE I WAS A RENTER FOR 12 YEARS.

TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE OBAMA PROGRAM BEING A FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYER, GOT INTO A NEW HOUSE OR A HOUSE.

CRAZY IDEA, YOU KNOW, I'M TOWARD THE END OF MY CAREER TIME AND IWANT A LIFESTYLE CHANGE, SO MY HOUSE COULD BE A GOOD RENTALPROPERTY.

SO I HAVE THAT OPTION NOW,RIGHT? >> EXACTLY, AND THAT'S THE OTHERTHING.

IF YOU'RE ABLE TO LOCK INTO THAT30-YEAR FIXED RATE, THEN YOU'RE ABLE TO, DOWN THE FUTURE, LIKEYOU SAID, IF YOU DECIDE I'M GOING TO GO LIVE IN A CONDO NOWOR RENT, WHATEVER, YOU NOW HAVE THE ABILITY TO RENT YOUR HOUSEOUT AND NOT HAVE TO, YOU KNOW, HAVE SUCH A HIGH THRESHOLD INORDER FOR YOU TO BREAK EVEN OR MAKE A PROFIT EVERY MONTH.

>> Bob: HARVEY, IS HE MAKING YOU NERVOUS HERE?>> NO, HE'S NOT.

WE'VE BEEN WORKING TOGETHER AWHILE.

>> Bob: AS A REALTOR, HOW DO YOUPREPARE SOMEBODY FOR MAKING THAT DECISION TO BUY?LET'S TAKE SOMEBODY IN THE WORKFORCE LIKE A FIREFIGHTER ORA POLICE OFFICER.

>> THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ABOUT, OURWORKFORCE HOUSING INITIATIVE IS TO FIND HOMES THAT AREACCESSIBLE AND AFFORDABLE FOR PEOPLE WHO SERVE THE COMMUNITY,BUT CAN'T AFFORD TO LIVE IN THE COMMUNITY AND THERE'S A GREATNATIONAL CRISIS ABOUT PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE, WORK HERE, MAKE$37,000 AS A STARTING FIREFIGHTER OR POLICE OFFICER,ABOUT 41,000 IN NORFOLK AS A TEACHER, WHERE CAN THEY GO, WHATDO THEY DO? YOU KNOW, BECAUSE THEY'RESERVING THE COMMUNITY, BUT AGAIN, THEY'RE FRIED OUT BY THEBURP — PRICED OUT BY THE PURPOSE AND THE SUBSEQUENT RAISEIN THE MARKET.

WHAT JOE AND I ARE DOING ISINVENTORYING HOMES.

I AS THE REALTOR, THROUGH THEMLS SYSTEM, WHICH ALLOWS ME TO FIND OUT THAT THERE ARE 232HOMES IN NORFOLK NOW FOR SALE IN THE PRICE RANGE OF 150 TO$200,000.

WHICH WE WOULD CALL, BOB,AFFORDABLE HOUSING OR WORKFORCE HOW LONG.

AND THAT — JUST THAT TERM, WORKFORCE HOUSING MEANS HOUSINGFOR PEOPLE LIKE FIREFIGHTERS, POLICE OFFICERS, TEACHERS, WHOARE ESSENTIAL TO THE COMMUNITY.

BUS DRIVERS, THE MAINTENANCEPEOPLE WHO WORK ON THOSE BUSES.

>> Bob: NOW, YOU'VE GOT A HOUSEAT $150,000.

AT THE GOING LOWEST INTERESTRATE OFF THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD — >> THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH.

>> Bob: SO YOU ENTER INTO IT AND BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T MAKE THAT CARPAYMENT, YOU DIDN'T DO THIS, DIDN'T DO THAT, IT ALL OF ASUDDEN CREEPS UP ON YOU, RIGHT? >> CORRECT.

>> Bob: BECAUSE THE INTEREST RATE IS DEPENDENT UPON –>> CREDIT SCORE.

I MEAN, THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGSWE WANT TO DO.

THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO CANAFFORD — THEY NEVER MISS A RENT PAYMENT, BUT THEY CAN'T SEEM TOSAVE AND WE WANT TO EDUCATE THEM, THERE ARE PROGRAMS OUTTHERE.

THERE ARE PROGRAMS OUT THERETHAT GET YOU THAT GRANT MONEY YOU MAY NEED TO GET YOU INWITHOUT THE DOWN PAYMENT AND LET YOU START TO MAKE THE PAYMENT.

SO INSTEAD OF PAYING THE LANDLORD, IT'S REALLY A SAVINGSPLAN.

YOU SAID, HEY, MY RENT ASTHOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH AND MY WIFE AND I HAVE A GOAL OFPUTTING $100 A MONTH INTO THE SAVINGS ACCOUNT.

WE DON'T HAVE THE SXOT TICK LOANS OUT THERE THAT ARENEGATIVE AMORTIZATION — >> THANK GOODNESS.

>> SO YOU'RE BASICALLY SAVING EVERY TIME YOU MAKE A MORTGAGEPAYMENT.

THAT'S THE BEAUTY, ALMOST LIKE A401(K) FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE.

TEN, 20 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD WHENTHEY GO TO SELL, THAT MONEY CAN FUND RETIREMENT, COLLEGEEDUCATION, AND THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO HELP BUILD ANDYOU HAVE A BETTER SENSE OF COMMUNITY WHEN YOU OWN VERSUSRENTING.

>> Bob: LET'S SAY SOMEBODY'SWATCHING THIS AND SAYING, YOU KNOW WHAT, WE JUST CAME OFF THEHOLIDAYS, WE HAVE ZERO MONEY, WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF DEBT, A LOTOF DEBT, WE HAVE OUR CAR PAYMENT, WE'RE MAKING OUR RENT,BUT WE'D LIKE TO BUY INTO THE AMERICAN DREAM.

WHAT DO THEY DO? >> JOE AND I ARE GOING TO STARTBEGINNING IN JANG HOLDING SEMINARS FOR SOME OF THEWORKFORCE EMPLOYEES.

WE'VE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH THEPUBLIC SCHOOLS, THE BENEVOLENT FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE, HRT.

OUR INTENT IS TO GO TO THEM, SHOW THEM THESE ARE THE STEPSYOU NEED, THE CREDIT COUNSELING, THE CREDIT IMPROVEMENT YOU NEEDTO MAKE FOR THE YEAR BEFORE YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS ASINTENTLY AS YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT IT, BUT WHAT WE ARE TRYINGTO DO IS EDUCATE AND ASSIST BECAUSE IT IS A VERY TOUGH ROADTO GO WHEN YOU'RE — WHEN YOU'VE GOT THAT, BUT AS JOE SAYS, THEYMAKE THEIR PAYMENTS EVERY MONTH.

WHEN YOU DO THAT IN A HOME AND ILOVE HIS ANALOGY THAT IT'S A FORCED SAVINGS PLAN.

WHEN YOU BUY A HOME, YOU INVEST IN THAT HOME.

THE NEIGHBORS ARE HAPPIER THAT THAT HOME IS SOLD RATHER THANRENTED.

IT'S MORE PLACID FOR THECOMMUNITY AT LARGE.

>> Bob: SO SHOULD THEY CALLTHEIR FRIEND THE REALTOR AND START DRIVING AROUND OR SHOULDTHEY START SAVING FIRST? >> REALLY, WHAT THEY WANT TO DOIS DO A FINANCIAL CHECKUP.

I MEAN, YOU WANT TO SEE WHATTHEIR CREDIT IS.

>> Bob: NOW YOU'RE SOUNDING LIKEMY WIFE.

>> YEAH, I KNOW.

YOU WANT TO FIND OUT WHERE YOUR CREDIT IS, WE NEED TO LOOK ATYOUR DEBT-TO-INCOME RATIO, BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT YOU TO GETYOUR HOPES UP, HARVEY SHOWS YOU THE PERFECT HOME, BUT YOU CAN'TGET THE CREDIT.

JANUARY IS A PERFECT TIME.

YOU FILE TAXES AND GET THE REFUND, SO INSTEAD OF TAKING ATRIP OR — MAYBE ME TAKE THAT MONEY AND PAY OFF A CREDIT CARDAND NOW YOU CAN QUALIFY AND SO NOW INSTEAD OF A 600 CREDITSCORE, YOU HAVE A 650 CREDIT SCORE AND YOU MIGHT BE ELIGIBLEFOR OTHER PROGRAMS OUT THERE WITH A LOWER INTEREST RATE, SOIT'S A GOOD TIME TO PLAN WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO BE.

AGAIN, SOME OF THESE — IN ORDER TO GO FROM RENTING TO OWNING,SOMETIMES IT TAKES A YEAR, TWO YEARS OF, HEY, WE REALLY GOTTO — IT'S LIKE GETTING A BAD GRADE IN SCHOOL.

TO TRY TO GET YOUR AVERAGE BACK UP IS VERY DIFFICULT, SO WHENYOU ARE LATE ON A COUPLE CREDIT CARDS AND MAYBE BECAUSE OFMEDICAL REASONS OR WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE, IT TAKES TIMESOMETIMES TO HEAL THOSE AND THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO TRY TOHELP DO SO WE CAN GET YOU OUT OF RENTING AND INTO OWNING THATWAY.

>> Bob: YOU MENTIONED A YEAR.

THAT'S — WOW.

SO IF YOU'RE INTO AN APARTMENTAND YOU HAVE A LEASE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, THEN REALLYLOOK AT THAT FIRST? >> CERTAINLY LOOK AT THAT FIRST,BUT I THINK IT COMES DOWN TO GETTING SOME UNDERSTANDING OFWHAT THIS PROCESS IS AND YOU JUST DON'T GO BUY A HOUSE.

IT'S A LONG INVOLVED PROCESS AND WHEN YOUR CREDIT IS SHAKY ANDYOU'RE NOT SO SURE — YOU'RE NOT GOING TO PUT YOUR FOOT IN THEWATER AND AS JOE SAYS, A GOOD TIME TO DO THAT.

WHAT WE TRY TO DO IS COME IN, WHETHER IT'S A CHURCH GROUP OR ASCHOOL GROUP, WE WILL COME AND TALK TO YOU ABOUT HOW IT'S DONE.

JOE WITH HIS DEEP KNOWLEDGE OF THE MORTGAGE BUSINESS AND THEVHD AND SOME OF THE LOANS AVAILABLE AS WELL AS CREDITCLEAN-UP, AND ME WITH THE PROPERTIES BECAUSE I KNOW WHERETHE PROPERTIES ARE.

THIS IS PART OF OUR WORKFORCEPLAN, WE WANT TO INVENTORY THESE PROPERTIES SO PEOPLE CAN LOOK ATTHEM.

SO THEY'RE NOT HAVING TO DRIVE25 MILES OR 50 MILES TO THEIR SCHOOLS TO TEACH.

ONE BIG THING ABOUT WORKFORCE IS PROXIMITY TO THE JOB, AND INTHIS RESORT AREA, WE HAVE FROM WILLIAMSBURG DOWN THE OUTSTERBANKS, IT'S VERY — OUTER BANKS, IT'S VERY TOUGH TO FINDAFFORDABLE HOUSING THAT'S CLOSE BY WHERE YOU'RE EMPLOYED.

>> Bob: THE REAL LESSON LEARNED, IS DON'T LET THE EMOTIONS GET INTHE WAY, BUT GET WITH THE PROFESSIONALS.

>> AGREED.

IT'S A SCARY PROCESS, WE'VE ALLBOUGHT, SO IT'S NOT A WALK IN THE PARK, SO YES, WE'RE HERE TOGUIDE YOU AND ASSIST YOU.

>> Bob: IT'S KIND OF COOLBECAUSE IF YOU DO BUY, THEN YOU HAVE THE MAJOR DECISIONS, SHOULDWE CHANGE THE COLOR AND YOU CAN HAVE A DREAM.

AND CLEAN GUTTERS ON WEEKENDS! THANKS A LOT.

IT'S NOT THAT HARD.

IT'S A MATTER OF DOING YOURHOMEWORK AND GETTING WITH A FROERGE AND GETTING READY TOCLEAN GUTTERS.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

How to Sell Your House Fast & For More Money

Hello! Your real estate expert, Lance Mohr,and I am going to talk about how to sell a house for the highest price possible.

So beforeI go into the video series and how to sell a house and certainly get maximum profits,I want to tell you why I am doing this.

I have been doing real estate for years andI have helped thousands of people, but one thing always gets on me and always has foryears is I go in the multiple listing service and I see these sellers that are just makingthese really poor decisions on the agents they hire.

And I understand it is not thesellers fault, people just do not know what to do.

But it sickens me to see agents goout there and they take horrible pictures, they write really poor descriptions, theydo absolutely no marketing, they do not return phone calls and it just makes me mad.

It givesa bad eye for the business and makes us look bad as real estate agents.

And then it bringsme to the second reason, it is to help sellers, because I know you are not doing this everyday, I know you don't really know what to do.

Everybody knows, okay, let's put it onlineand let's do this, but what really sells a home? What's really going to sell a home andget you maximum profit? You don't know that, it's not your business, and you shouldn'tknow it.

And then you go in and you start interviewing real estate agents and some realestate agents could be really really good real estate agents.

They do a ton of marketingand they're great, but maybe they're not the best salesperson in the world.

And then youget other people to come in and they don't do anything.

They're basically just a grinderand they go in and they get the listing, they work out your door and they don't even rememberwho you are, they just turn it over to an assistant and they do no marketing.

So that'sreally why I did this.

And I remember several months back I'm talking to an agent that'sa national trainer with a company and I'm talking to him, and he's been in the businessfor years, and he said "You know, it's just really good to know that none of my clientsreally knew I never did anything to sell homes.

And I said, well, what do you mean? I said,marketing is the key.

And he said, well, not really.

He said, It's relationships are thekey.

' And I'm sitting there thinking, no, it's not! And that just really opened my eyes.

This is a huge real estate agent that's known nationally in the business and has been inthe business for years and years and years and even trains other agents, and they'retelling me it's about relationship? That it's not about, you know, customer service andmarketing and all these other things.

So that's really why I wanted to do that, I just wantedyou to know where I'm coming from.

So what I'm going to do is I'm going to go throughthis video series and I'm going to try to keep things brief and just walk through someof the stuff you need to know.

Because I understand, even if you're in the Tampa Bay area in Florida,maybe you already have your home listed with another agent and that's okay or maybe you'rein New York or out in Iowa or somewhere and you're watching this and you need help.

AndI'm also going to go over some stuff on how to interview agents, how to pick a good agent,so you know so you're not picking some dud.

And how to get out of pretty much any listingagreement.

So we'll go through all that and if you have any questions at all on anything,don't hesitate to contact me.

If you like the videos, please share them, rate, comment,give me a thumbs up, anything I'd really appreciate it.

I wish you the best of luck and I reallyhope this helps.

I know if you pay attention to this, I'm sure you're going to get a lotof really good information.

Alright, thank you very much.
