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!).

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.

Belief in Homeownership as an Investment is Far from Dead

Belief in Homeownership as an Investment is Far from Dead | Simplifying The MarketFollowing last year’s real estate market was like riding a rollercoaster. The market started off strong in 2018 and then softened before finishing with a mild flurry. However, one thing that did not waiver was America’s belief that owning a home makes sense from a financial standpoint. An end-of-the-year survey by the Federal Reserve Bank’s Center […]

Open Houses

This is very true!

But be aware that most agents use open houses to prospect for home buyers that don’t currently have an agent.

You will find a sign-in sheet, and maybe even a giveaway, at open houses. And that makes sense. They want your information, in order to market to you.

But if you are working with an agent, make sure you take them with you!

New homes are much larger

Whether this is a good or a bad thing is a personal preference. Bigger homes can be great, especially if you need the space. But they also require more time to clean, right?
