If you watch certain financial influencers, they will specifically say, "Don't buy a house" or "a house is not a good investment. These include Ramit Sethi, Morgan Housel, and Robert Kiyosaki who famously says, "A house is not an asset," despite owning according to him around 16,000 units. He also completely ignores the accounting equation of Asset=Liabilities + Equity, or he just creates his own definition of what an asset is.The value for the average household in the US (US Census 2021) of their real estate holdings, equity in their own home, rentals plus other is around 36% of their net worth. The census excludes wealthiest 1% as it tends to skew the results. So, is it responsible for an influencer to make such blanket statements of an asset class that represents a substantial portio...

 Types of VA Loans in Oklahoma and FAQOklahoma has the same va loan options as all other states. For example, you can build a home with a va loan, buy a home with a va loan, and renovate a home with a va rehab loan.VA loans in Oklahoma typically require 0 down and don't have private mortgage insurance. The VA funding fee applies to Veterans who aren't 10% or more disabled.Oklahoma VA loans aren't done by the Department of Veterans Affairs, they are done by VA lenders and with a loan officer. A borrower's credit score and debt-to-income ratio are looked at in the va loan approval process. In 2023, many Veterans are comparing if it's cheaper to buy or build. Often times Veterans choose the VA construction loan because it's possible to buy land and build in one transaction. It's also known...

Bravo, you got the courage to write an offer on a home, now what?! Well, fortunately nothing is set in stone yet because your agent should have allotted a specific amount of days (in Oklahoma, typically 10) of "due diligence." This is your window of time to collect home inspections, termite inspections, and even structural investigations if deemed necessary by the home inspector. Did you know that you can actually back out of a contract scot-free (minus the home inspection fee) if you find something wrong with the home that makes you too uncomfortable to move forward? This is why picking the right person is so important. A home inspector can make or break a contract.Now I am sure you're thinking, "I need to find the most thorough inspector out there!", which is correct, but it is equall...

Oklahoma was hit with some major storms yesterday evening. Tornadoes, Softball size hail, and homes & cars completely destroyed. Many people are needing resources they can trust such as roofers, electricians, etc. There are MANY service providers in our state, especially roofers. I want to make sure my clients and other Oklahoman's get the right professional. There was recently a thread posted by a not so well known roofer in Oklahoma that made false claims about Realtors taking "kick backs" for referring roofers. THIS IS A RED FLAG. It is illegal for Real Estate Agents in Oklahoma to make any profit from a referral as such. We take pride in connecting people with professional service providers for the sake of helping one another. What takes the cake about the unknown roofer making thes...

Ethan and Brittany recently bought a home in Tulsa, Oklahoma for $160,000. They are the youngest home buyers I've ever worked with, the previous was a tennis pro Olivia who was 23 and Alex, a nurse, she was also 23. Ethan is 22 and Brittany is 19!The average age of a first time home buyer in the US according to HUD is 33. So when I witness an outlier event like this, I like to review exactly what happened and ask some questions in order to motivate other people and show the steps to do something similar.Ethan did live with his parents for two years, he is a chef at a country club. Brittany says about him, "He doesn't spend money, he works and saves." He managed to save over $20,000, the down payment and closing costs for their home was a little over $12,000.Starting at a younger age giv...

Your roof is the first line of defense and resistance for your house when it comes to safeguarding it from the weather, the wind, and other situations; yet, the question remains as to how durable and safe it is.If an impact resistant roof shields your home, you can confidently say your home is strong and safe. Impact-resistant roofs are built to withstand hail, wind, and water. The strength of an impact-resistant roof relates to the products used during installation. One of the most common items is impact-resistant shingles (hail-resistant shingles). These durable shingles come in many styles and can be made with asphalt or metal supplies.Mimicking the look of wood, slate, and traditional shingles, impact-resistant shingles are combined with cement, plastic, resin, polymer, and rubber. ...
