How to Fix the 7 Common Issues Preventing Your House from SellingIn our previous article, we discussed seven honest reasons why your house might not be selling. Now, let's delve into solutions for each of these issues to help you get your property off the market and into the hands of a happy buyer. 1. Overpricing Solution: Price Realistically To address overpricing, consult with a local real estate agent or appraiser who has a deep understanding of the market. They can provide a comparative market analysis (CMA) to determine a competitive price for your home. Be open to adjusting your asking price based on their recommendations and the feedback you receive from potential buyers.2.

It happened while I was serving in the US Navy in 2005 when I  bought my first property at the age of 23. I bought it so that some of my family could have a place to live. It was never my ambition to own real estate to create wealth. Unfortunately, I didn't start thinking of owning more real estate until I was in my 30s.However, that first condo was the start of my real estate journey. I still own it, and it has continued to provide passive income over the years. Looking back, I realized I made the right choice by not stopping paying the mortgage when I was significantly underwater during the GFC of 2007-2008. Friends told me to "forget about it" and let the back take it back. I'm glad I didn't listen to them!My journey has not been glamorous. As mentioned,  I did not fall in love with ...

     Dual Representation without consent is one of the many ways that a Real Estate agent can loose their license. It is when an agent represents both the buyer an seller of a property without letting the other client know. As an agent one has to let the client know that you will be representing both sides.     Also you have to get written permission from the client so that you are able to represent both sides. There are many cases of this happening around the U.S. It is very important for agents to understand that representing two parties with consent is unethical. The client can be thinking one thing on the fact that there are two different people negotiating a property. When in reality it is just one person doing the work.     That agent will be receiving the full commission from wha...

You likely work with all buyers and sellers as a real estate agent. But have you considered specializing in working with real estate investors? Becoming an "investor-friendly real estate agent" can help you stand out in a competitive market.   So what exactly does it take? First, you need to understand investors' goals and strategies intimately. Investors aren't looking for just any property - they need to find undervalued gems with strong return potential. You should focus on the market's pulse to identify promising deals. You must also grasp investors' unique tactics to finance and negotiate optimal win-win deals. While any agent can facilitate transactions, investor-friendly realtors bring specialized skills to guide clients strategically. You become their trusted partner, helping th...

Hello everybody! My name is Kaeden Roberts. I am a college student and am working on getting my real estate license as a step in earning my degree in construction management. I am currently taking my 120 hour course and have been enjoying learning more about real estate and how I can connect with those in this real estate while I pursue my career in residential and commercial construction. We have recently been learning in my course of the 21 ways in which a real estate licensee can lose their license and have been asked to choose one of those 21 ways and write a paragraph or two on it and what it means to us. I chose to write on the one that I feel engrains the majority of the different ways in which you can lose your license which is dishonesty. Honesty in any form of business, I beli...
