Busting myths about real estate

September 29, 2016

Today's episode is a very short conversation about myth busting Real estate perception. There so many people that earn a real estate license or dream to get a real estate license and think that business is just going to come by osmosis. Trust me when I say it's going to take a minimum of 3 to 5 years for things to just flow your way. Work the hours or spend the money is the best advice I can give you. I was lucky enough to start on a strong team with an amazing mentor. My suggestion is take every class you can, treat this as a career not a job, and be willing to commit to the hours.

Q & A with a real estate appraiser

September 12, 2016
I had the pleasure of chatting with Betsy Hughes, SRA with BK Appraisals.   Appraisers holding the SRA designation have met rigorous requirements relating to education, testing, experience and demonstration of knowledge, understanding, and ability. This designation sets her apart from the typical residential appraiser. In order to maintain the designation continuing education above the state requirements is required.

We asked some of our listeners what things do you want to ask a real estate appraiser:

What are the requirements that a real estate appraiser is looking for when determining the appraised market value?

Does it help for a real estate agent to forward upgrades and comparables to help determine sales price?

What are the value of swimming pools and acreages? 

What are the adjustments for bedroom count?
