Tips for Selling Your Home — For Sale by Owner

Your home is one of your biggest assets, so when you consider selling it, you want to make sure you get the most money you can out of it. Real estate sales take place every day. People seem to buy and sell houses more frequently than they used to just a few decades ago.

There are several options for selling your home. When you are ready to sell, you need to decide the best means of attracting a buyer and completing the transfer of ownership. If you are considering a for sale by owner transaction, there are some ideas you should keep in mind.

What is a Closing Date and Why Does it Change?

When you sign your purchase agreement, the closing date is set — but that’s only an approximation. Your closing date will be officially set by the attorney handling the transaction. Between signing the purchase agreement and handing over the keys to the new owner, you may experience a change in the closing date.

As a buyer, you shouldn’t be alarmed if this happens — in fact, it’s best to be prepared for it no matter what. Here are 10 reasons a real estate closing date may change.

Tips for Running Your Own Consulting Business

Running Your Own Consulting Business

Running a business is a tough job, but when you are doing what you love, it doesn’t seem like work at all. Most business owners work far more hours than they did as an employee of a company — but starting your own consulting business gives you the opportunity to make the rules and reap all the benefits.

When you are running a business, you need a plan to bring in clients, complete jobs efficiently and develop new revenue streams. One key to success is balancing your time between serving clients and searching for new clients. Ideally, clients will become repeat customers, and you will develop a work process to maximize your income.

Managing Financial Affairs for Aging Parents

For a long time, your parents likely managed the financial aspects of your life or at least provided valuable advice that helped set you up for future success.

With that in mind, it can be incredibly difficult to institute a role reversal when your parents become older, as they become more at-risk for financial fraud. Bringing up this topic through discussion, however, might make them feel as though their independence is being taken away from them, and it might feel like you’re taking on an extra burden.

While it can be uncomfortable for both sides, sharing or taking over financial responsibilities for your parents doesn’t have to be highly stressful if you handle the process the right way.

Building a Winning Team for Your Real Estate Business

The old adage “There is no ‘I’ in ‘team’” often rings true in most business environments, and it’s especially factual when it comes to real estate.

Finding a niche in competitive real estate markets can be frustrating and laborious, but it can pay huge dividends. You won’t be able to do that without a competent team of co-workers, in-house professionals and contractors at your side to assist, which means you must carefully measure how all of these components come together and function.

Here are some tips on building a winning team for your real estate business.
