I’m Zach Kidd, The Veteran Realtor® .

I’m a business and marketing guy
operating in Real Estate. USAF Veteran.


Have you ever watched a TV show about people making money in real estate and wondered,

“What do they know that I don’t? And how can I learn it?!?”

I’ve spent a lot (of time, effort, studying, and yes, money) to learn it. Hardcore investor-level learning.

And one day, I realized something – it is truly accessible to everyone.

You can put a lot more money in your pocket by using smart real estate strategies.

And most are incredibly simple, doing what you are already doing – living somewhere.

And sadly, very few people know these at all, and rarely will anyone know how the average person can take advantage of them.

That’s what I’m here for – to make money FOR you!

All you need to do to get started is take three easy steps:

  1. Grab coffee with me – book it now right here.
  2. I’ll help you define what success looks like for you (there are no wrong answers!) 
  3. I’ll provide a plan customized for you.

Get started right now (or anytime) by clicking that “Book Appointment” button.

My primary service area is the coastal area of Pinellas County, Florida, including most of the Tampa Bay Suncoast, primarily the beaches, near beach areas, and waterfront properties, from Tierra Verde to Dunedin.

Don’t Disqualify Yourself… 52% of Approved Loans Have A FICO® Score Under 750

Don’t Disqualify Yourself… 52% of Approved Loans Have A FICO® Score Under 750 | Simplifying The MarketThe results of countless studies have shown that potential home buyers, and even current homeowners, have an inflated view of what is really required to qualify for a mortgage in today’s market. One such study by the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania revealed that many millennials have not yet considered purchasing homes simply because […]

Do THIS before ANYTHING else!

If you’re even THINKING of buying or selling a home, do this immediately!


If you are even THINKING of buying or selling a home (or both), you need to put your phone numbers on the Federal and State Do Not Call lists immediately.

It’s really easy, and will save your sanity.

Florida Do Not Call: FLDNC.com

Federal Do Not Call: DoNotCall.gov

Make sure you register EVERY phone number in your family.
.
Parents, kids, dog, whatever.

If they have a phone number, put it on these TODAY!


It seems like such a tiny (and yeah, boring) thing to do.

But if you’re a home buyer, the day after your closing is “recorded” (filed with the County), your phone will start ringing, and ringing, and ringing, with sales pitch after sales pitch about how to protect/save/upgrade your new home.

Home sellers? Yeah, just as bad.

Not at first, of course, but…

If you’re home doesn’t sell, and the MLS listing switches to “Expired” status, just take a short drive down to the Gulf of Mexico and throw your phone in.

Don’t actually do that.
Pollution is bad.
But it will be tempting!

But if you put your phone number(s!) on the Do Not Call lists at least 32 days BEFORE you take any action, you will be off the radar for most solicitation calls.


Some people take pride in cold-calling people on the Do Not Call lists.

It’s illegal, immoral (okay, downright RUDE!), and has hefty fines.

Do us all a favor – get their information (sweet talk them if you must) and report them immediately using those same websites.

And for the love of all things holy – do NOT do business with anyone slimy enough to cold-call a Do Not Call List phone number!

Do not reward bad behavior!


I’ll save you a scroll back up the page – here they are one more time:

Florida Do Not Call: FLDNC.com

Federal Do Not Call: DoNotCall.gov


If you’re a home seller, you’ll want to read this too.

It’s totally FREE, no strings attached (seriously!).

VetCatch interview with The Veteran Realtor

Veterans helping veterans by going fishing? Sounds perfect.

The Veteran Realtor® interviews Jeremy Gordon, Vice President of VetCatch ( VetCatchInc.org or facebook.com/VetCatch ).

It seems like such an obvious match – take Veterans fishing with other Veterans. Being out on the ocean, fresh salt air, with a fishing pole in hand, while surrounded by your brothers and sisters in a supportive (if occasionally bawdy) environment.

I was surprised to learn that VetCatch got its start right here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida!

This was their first major event, and there was a great turnout. Jeremy Gordon was gracious enough to be interviewed, where we discussed the history, goals, and unique strategies that make VetCatch so appealing and effective.

We also discussed the difference between a VFW Post (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and The American Legion, and how other Veteran Organizations are contributing to their success.

And, of course, there is some decidedly Veteran humor and some fishing too.

Sponsors and participants in this event include:
Barracuda Tackle ( BarracudaTackle.com or facebook.com/BarracudaTackle )
The Tampa Bay Fishing Club ( facebook.com/groups/TampaBayFishingClub )
My Warriors Place ( MWPusa.net or facebook.com/mywarriorsplace )
The Fallen Outdoors ( TheFallenOutdoors.com or facebook.com/tfotreasurer )
and Liberty Outdoors ( LibertyOutdoors.us or facebook.com/LibertyOutdoors.US )
who went a bit overboard with coolers and kayaks galore!

And, of course, our Captains, who made it possible for the attendees to get out on the water properly.

Captain Court Douthit ( RecreationSpecialist.org )
Tommy Dominguez Fishing ( TakeaDayOffFishingCharters.com )
Captain Joe Burruezo ( SlobbyJoeCharters.com )

Overall, I had a fantastic time with Jeremy and VetCatch, and if you made it this far, I bet you would love it too, so get involved – volunteer, sponsor, or participate!

HUGE VA Loan News!!!

Just three days ago, President Trump put the final signature to H.R. 299, the “Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act.” 

This legislation included eliminating the cap on the VA Home Loan guarantee. 

This is enormous!

On Monday, the VA Loan was tied to the FHA Loan cap, which is  $484,350 in 2019 for most loans.

Above that, borrowers had to put down 25 percent of the difference.

For example (and using round numbers because it’s easier), let’s call the cap $500k.

If you wanted to buy a house for $700k, you would have to put down 25%, or in this case, $50k.

Not terrible all things considered.

Now, there is no cap!

If you are well-qualified, you can buy a 10 Million Dollar home… for zero down.

Mind.

Blown.

If you have more questions about real estate, including VA Loans, hit me up in the comments. If it’s a quality question, I may just cut another video to answer it.

Have a great weekend.
