1/Do something you are good at – to regain your self-confidence, do something you are good at. Whether this is supporting your clients or making your children laugh, it will give you the strength and motivation to move on to the next task.2/Exercise often – even if you don’t feel like it, engage in some sort of physical activity that you enjoy. Lack of movement will just make you feel sluggish and depleted.3/Acknowledge the progress you’ve made – spend some time looking at your accomplishments, you might just realise that you’ve achieved more than you realise.4/Help others – focusing on generosity and kindness can really create a strong and positive sense of being. Connect with your family more and find ways you can help others.

We’ve created the first algorithm to calculate if you both are a good fit.   We look at four major components: Experience Scale Complexity Finance   Let’s use a real world example… Is The Helsing Group a good match for 428 Alice Owners Association?   Experience Match = 68.75% The Helsing Group mainly manages younger HOAs. They are usually put in place directly by the developer when the HOA is brand new. The average age of HOAs they manage is 11 years old. 428 Alice is now 16 years old. Similar to people, buildings start to have more problems as they age. If a property manager only has experience with younger HOAs, they are probably not a good match for an older HOA.   An example of what can happen if Experience Match is lower At 428 Alice, a majority of the emergency lighting in the th...

Hello, I am currently taking a class to get my real estate license. My assigment is to talk about the 21 ways to loose your license. I have picked false advertising because I personally think that false advertising is something that happens more often than not in todays world. Advertising can be very misleading and disceptive or dishonest. I see it everyday , for example it's a food item that looks amazing in the ad/picture but the when you buy it it's not even close to the image advertised. The item you were excited to get lets you down and discouraged, you feel like you were scammed out of your hard earned money. This to me is a good example of how false advertising can ruin the experience and excitement the customer has for the thing they were excited about or hoping for. Advertising...

After a two-year buying frenzy, rising interest rates, inflation, and uncertainty about the economy's future have planted many prospective homebuyers firmly on the sidelines. Will interest rates continue to climb, level out, or return to the unprecedented lows we saw at the height of the pandemic?We hear this question frequently, and experience tells us that the best way to answer it is by analyzing current real estate trends that will impact the housing market. Here’s what we’re seeing.The Market Will Remain SlowOver the last two years, home sales surged at a rate we haven't seen since 2006. To put that into perspective, 6.1 million housing transactions occurred in 2021 alone. Compare that to 5.95 million home sales in 2022. So what do we expect in 2023?Homes will stay on the market lo...

CL-100 is a termite/fungus inspection. It is a requirement for some mortgages to be written on a mortgage for a property in the state of South Carolina. The CL-100 is the official South Carolina Wood Infestation Report form. It should include information based on a  visual inspection for signs of wood-destroying insects such as termites and wood beetles and wood destroying bees. The detailed report also includes inspection for signs of decay, wood rot, moisture issues and fungi. To protect themselves, banks and lending institutions require that homes be inspected for damage before lending money on the home.  However, not all mortgages require this. The CL-100 inspection report is required to be completed by a qualified, licensed South Carolina home inspector or pest control expert. Once...

Here is your topic for this lesson:Choose one of the 21 ways to lose a real estate license and write a few paragraphs about it:False advertising in real estate refers to the act of making false or misleading statements in the promotion or sale of real estate properties. This can include things like exaggerating the size or amenities of a property, hiding defects or problems with the property, or making false claims about the surrounding neighborhood. False advertising is illegal and can result in fines or penalties for the person or company responsible. An example of false advertising in real estate would be if a real estate agent advertised a property as being in a "desirable neighborhood" when in fact it was in an area known for high crime rates or other issues. Another example would ...

This is part of my 120 hr real estate training. One of the 21 ways to lose your real estate license is to be dishonest. I was so dumb founded by the amount of dishonest people there are in the public. There was plenty of videos online displaying the amount of lies people will tell others just to benefit themselves. In this line of work, you need to be honest with people and trustworthy. Real estate agents have a lot of power over the general public involving purchasing a house. Misleading information or lying for your benefit will be the first way ticket out of the real estate world. This is people money, family and jobs on the line for lying to potential clients or current clients. All 21 ways  Misrepresentation Dual Representation Without Consent False Affiliation Money Problems Unaut...

Would you take your money now or wait?Have you ever wondered why someone receiving a large payout would take it in a lump sum instead of installments over time? It boils down to economics. The principle is that a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow because it can earn you money NOW and grow your wealth exponentially for your future.  This principle is known as the time value of money.  How does this apply to you as a commercial property owner?Is there a lottery for commercial property owners that you can start playing? In all jest, no, but there is money waiting for you to claim right inside the walls of your building....Read Full Article
