The inspiration for this post is derived from attending today's Women's Council of REALTORS® presentation by Rose Lounsbury, Elevate Virtual Conference.  Rose is a former teacher and became a lifestyle coach, public speaker, and best selling author after giving birth to triplets!  She's an inspiring speaker and her information is share-worthy!  Below are some great tips that Rose provided that can benefit ANYONE!  Her comment, "Your value is way more than you can produce" is a great reminder of when to set boundaries for productivity.    Another quote by Theodore Roosevelt, "Comparison is the thief of joy" reminds us never to compare yourself to others, but to limit social media for that reason alone.    Sometimes we don't feel as if we might be more successful if......   And we start c...

Sort of. If you are in front of your computer and you see a bunch of email offers that you just know are probably fake, I have invented a little game.I simply hit reply with a blank email and wait for the results.Example. I just did eleven of the 'deals' or of suspicious content.Seven came right back as 'fake' or 'undeliverable'.The solution. Just delete them without opening. No telling what's in the content besides a con job.

Should You Rent Your House or Sell It? If you’re a homeowner ready to make a move, you may be thinking about using your current house as a short-term rental property instead of selling it. A short-term rental (STR) is typically offered as an alternative to a hotel, and they’re an investment that’s gained popularity in recent years. According to a Harris Poll survey, 28% of homeowners have considered using a rental service to temporarily rent out their homes for additional income. Owning a short-term rental can be a tempting idea, but you may find the reality of being responsible for one difficult to take on. Here are some of the challenges you could face if you rent out your house instead of selling it. A Short-Term Rental Comes with Responsibilities Successfully owning and renting a ho...

Your Lender gives you a prequalification letter with an amount to tell your REALTOR® the home price to start looking for. However, life has changes (a future job change, baby, taking care of parents or family, medical issues, college and approaching school costs etc). You may have to overlay some of these future changes into a future formula. What is the ACTUAL home price you should consider based on YOUR situation. A price that you can REALLY AFFORD?
