Real Estate Virtual Video Tours Are a Big Hit

Image
Real estate virtual tours are awesome ways to show a home. As the prospect visually follows the tour they get a much better feeling for what the property is all about. It's a great idea to start from the front of the home and make your way in, moving from room to room like a pro.Take extra time on the nicest areas of the house, and the spots that are popular like bathrooms, living room, kitchen, etc.. Of course if you are allowed to fly a drone in your area it's great to swoop into the propery from great heights.Of course if the lawn is full of weeds, and the roof is missing shingles maybe skip that part. Sometimes people like to see the neighboorhood as well so you can fly the drone around to get those shots too. These guys are working on some interesting cool live video streaming solutions that may work great for real estate tours. The bottom line is make sure to get great footage with lots of natural light and you will do great.With recent technology advancements, we are ev…

Construction Liens 101: What They Are and How to File One

Image
It’s an unfortunate reality for any business owner: sometimes a client doesn’t pay their bills. It’s a frustrating experience. You’ve done good work. You’ve delivered materials requested. You’ve completed projects to spec and on time. You’ve even paid your team. But still, the builder or homeowner is dragging their feet getting you a check. The good news is that you have options when it comes to collecting what’s owed to you. It’s called a construction lien, or some may call it a mechanics lien. It allows you to take legal action to get paid for services rendered and supplies delivered. There is a catch, though. Construction liens have a strict set of procedures to follow, and some of the requirements for filing one must be established long before you ever know you’ll need one.What is a Construction Lien?A construction lien is a claim made by a tradesman, organization, or supplier who has provided work against a property. It is a legal remedy for professionals who have performed work …

Why You Should Get Pre-Approved For Your Mortgage

Image
Before you look for a home, you need to know how much money you have to spend. And for most new homeowners, the majority of that money is going to come in the form of a mortgage. Before you buy your home (and secure your Huntington Beach mortgage), you have two options in determining your budget with your lender: you can either get pre-qualified or pre-approved for your loan.Here's a good video to watch if you are brand new:  Many potential homebuyers don’t understand the difference and believe pre-qualification and pre-approval are interchangeable. But that’s not the case. Pre-qualification occurs when you provide financial information to the lender and the lender uses the information you provide in order to make an estimate of how much they might be willing to lend you. Pre-approval happens when the lender takes your information and supporting documentation (like pay stubs and W2s) and verifies it with the appropriate sources. Once your information is verified, the lender can gi…

Fixed Vs. Adjustable Rate Mortgages: What’s The Difference?

Image
If you’re on the market for a new home, the biggest hurdle is likely to be how you’re going to pay for that home. Unless you’ve got cash to pay for the home front (and in which case, congratulations), you’re going to need to secure financing in the form of a mortgage. A mortgage is essentially a loan that covers the cost of your home. You’re responsible for paying back the loan plus interest over the course of years (typically 15 or 30). The concept of a mortgage is pretty simple. You borrow money from a lender to pay for your home and then pay them back the total you borrowed plus the interest you accrue over the life of the loan. But the types of mortgages available to you aren’t quite as simple. You have two main options when it comes to securing a mortgage: a fixed rate or an adjustable rate mortgage. But what’s the difference? What are the pros and cons of each? And which is the best choice for you and your finances? Fixed Rate Mortgages A fixed rate mortgage is a mortgage with a…

Why You Need To Work With A Real Estate Agent When Selling Your Home

Image
When the time comes to sell their property, many homeowners first thought is to manage the process themselves. “Why hire someone to do a job I can do myself?” And while selling your home independently is certainly an option, the road to “Sold” is significantly more challenging than you might think. The road to “Sold” is full of detours, twists, and bumps along the road, and without someone to guide you through it, it’s easy to get lost. To get the most out of selling your home, you need to work with someone who’s traveled that road before. And that person is a real estate agent. Working with a real estate agent who has significant experience in your market can make the process of selling your home faster, easier, and significantly less stressful. Here are three reasons why you need to work with a real estate agent when selling your home: Real Estate Agents Know Your Market As a homeowner, you know the ins and outs of your property. Unfortunately, chances are you don’t have the same ki…

What Closing Costs Can You Expect When You Buy A Home?

Image
When getting ready to purchase a home, it’s important to set a budget before contacting a Calgary real estate agent. In addition to the recurring costs of owning a home (like a monthly mortgage payment, property taxes, and insurance), there are additional costs that some homeowners are not aware of - including closing costs. Closing costs are the fees you’re responsible for paying when the sellers transfer the title of the property to you, the new owners (also known as closing). For homeowners who are unaware of or unprepared to deal with closing costs, these additional fees can be a serious blow to their budget. That’s why it’s important to understand what closing costs you can expect when you close on your home - that way, you can factor it into your budget and won’t run into any expensive surprises at the finish line of the home buying process. What Closing Costs You Can Expect There’s no one-size-fits-all set of closing costs; the closing costs you pay will depend on where you liv…

The beach house style is breezy, fresh, clean and crisp. To achieve this distinct theme, you must take all your decorating ideas from nature.

The Benefits of Buying vs. Renting

Image
If you’re in the market for a new home, you likely are considering two options: renting or buying. And while there are advantages and disadvantages to both, if you’re in a position to buy, now is the time to make a move. The benefits of homeownership are huge, and in terms of a long-term investment, it’s always going to make more sense than renting. Here are three reasons you should buy instead of rent: Buying Allows You To Build Equity The main benefit to buying vs. renting is that buying allows you to build equity in your home. When you rent a home, the money you pay each month in rent goes to your landlord. But when you buy, your mortgage payment goes towards paying down the balance of your loan and gets you one step closer to owning the property in full. But even before you own that property, you’re building equity. Equity is the difference between the value of your property and how much you owe on your mortgage. If you buy your house in a strategic way (like purchasing a home in …
