The saying “there’s always a first time” definitely applies to me, this is my first blog.I am a new agent and heard about Active Rain during an on line class I’m taking with Diana Bustamante.                                                                                                                 Before the pandemic we had started looking to downsize to a smaller home and I realized how interesting it was to be in real estate. After everything shut down, we were not sure what would happen because we were self employed. That is when I decided to take the class and so so glad I did.

The price of homes in recent days has gone through the roof in Reno NV and the surrounding areas.  Investors are having a hard time finding anything reasonable to flip.  I happen to have a listing over 2000 sq ft that needs updating in Silver Springs and priced to sell at 159k sitting on .70 acre with all utilities there--ready to move into.  Its a MF home with a stick built.  There is nothing lower in Reno, Carson City or even in Silver Springs this big for that price.  You may check and see  Call me if interested  3609 Atkins, Silver Springs, NV 89429  I also have a duplex priced to sell in Hawthorne NV at 742 D St at only 49k  thanks

Hi Everyone, I am 19 years old and on a journey to becoming a real estate agent. I have just finished my sales agent course and I am looking for more practice and studying before taking the state exam. I wanted to come on here to blog about my real estate journey and everything I learn. If you guys have any study tips for the state exam, specifically the Utah state exam please let me know! Also, if you guys have any other tips in getting started in real estate or advice I would love that as well. Thank you! Have a good day all (:

Hello there!  Have you ever gone to an online store, found a really great outfit, and then order it? You are so excited, watching out the windows at every car that passes by until the package arrives? Just like Christmas morning you are jumping for joy as you slice through the tape and open up your gift to yourself. But it looks slightly off. No worries, you haven't put it on yet. Excitedly you get dressed, and then look at yourself in the mirror and deflate. It looks nothing like what you ordered. In fact, one could say that there is no resemblance what so ever. You huff and tilt your head back wondering why the universe has done this to you. You probably spent $100, maybe more and maybe less, but you still spent that money and probably feel bad about it now. Now imagine that you did t...

Abstract:In the biblical book of Genesis the story of the Tower of Babel discusses a time when the people of Earth following the flood of Noah were unified in speech and sought to build a giant tower reaching to the heavens. God intervened and confused the languages of the people causing disunity and resulting in the great tower to remain unfinished. In modern times, many archeologists have been reluctant to attribute historical basis to the story, instead suggesting it was invented as a teaching myth. However recent discoveries in Babylon bring support that the story had a basis in fact.Interested in facts about Archeology?

We just had a spot open on the first page of Google! That was the opening pitch the last SEO sale rep told me! He was able to say that with what sounded like a straight face. If I had $2 (with todays inflation it's now recommended to use $2) for all the SEO sales calls I've received since SEO became a thing, well I could pay a real SEO guru to optimize my web site. If it was only that easy to rank as a Mortgage Lender in Florida, by having them swap out first page rankings.What are some of the best or let's say the worst SEO call's you have gotten?

Real estate is one of the oldest and most stable investments that you can make. If you are looking for a way to build wealth, invest in real estate.

When customers are in the market looking for a home, weather it’s their first home or their fifth, they want to be able to work with an agent they can 1000% trust. Real estate agents are going to be in possession of a lot of personal information from their clients, as well as large amounts of money from the clients. There have been many cases where agents come in possession of large sums of money from the clients, and feel as if they can take or “borrow” small amount without anyone noticing. The moment any kind of money received from the clients goes into anything else than was agreed on, those funds become commingling funds. Commingling funds puts  you at RISK of ,not only, losing your real estate license but as well as losing a lot of business. In the case an agent is convicted of com...

Skip the fees and sell your home 2.5x faster*List your home for free, attract higher offers, and close the deal up to 3 weeks faster than average with Better Real Estate. So what if I told you that I could list your home right now without charging you a listing fee? Would you believe me? Would you believe that I would make your home stand out with professional, hi- resolution photography, that will also cost you nothing? You're probably wondering what agent would do all that without demanding a percentage of your profits?It's become the norm for an agent to walk in and convince you why they are worth the 3% commission to list your property, so hearing that there's another way is kind of hard to believe, isn't it? Think about listing your property and saving as much as $15k more on a $50...

Run your own Race: 5 areas of focus for a new real estate agent "Run your own Race" were the words of a veteran agent to me as I embarked upon the excitement of becoming a new rock start agent.  Her words have been engrafted in my head as I attend trainings and hear the successes of newer agents obtaining listings and closing real estate transactions within a couple months of their real estate journey.With a flood of new information, required training, and daily commitments outside of real estate, it's easy to become overwhelmed with all the newness of the role. I have identified 5 transition behaviors  to assist us as we navigate our new business venture.1.

There are a lot of choices you've got to choose from a new home. From location, cost or several factors that may affect the unit value. You’ll be forced to understand many things that you haven't heard before. One among the foremost ones: what type of home do you wish for? Which one will I prefer in Townhouse vs Condo ? If you’re not into a single-family home, you may consider the option of Townhouse vs Condo. Both options have similar square measure and quite a few variations. Deciding which suits your real estate needs may need a further analysis and understanding the pros and cons of each of the unit. Here’s to kickstart our knowledge about Townhouse vs Condo, especially Townhouse Fresno for your ideal home;Basic of CondoA condominium is designed pretty similarly to a flat or an apar...
