Is it time to stop filling your Landlordís Wallet
Is it time to stop filling your Landlordís Wallet
As a renter, you are subject to the whims of your landlord. They work at their own pace, and improve their property as they see fit. You have no control over the property that you reside in. Do your floors need to be resurfaced or your carpets replaced Sit around and wait for your landlord to do it. Do your walls need to be repainted Ask the landlord.
It sometimes feels like youíre living at home with mom and dad again, doesnít it
So, its just easier to keep paying rent, right Donít forget . . . the landlord can raise rent on you over time.
You can afford your own home!
Unfortunately, most people fear that qualifying for a loan will never happen. This is not true. Competition between lenders has increased drastically, causing them to come up with more and more products. There is likely a product out there to help you afford your own home! You just have to do some work and find the right information.
While owning your own home may take some work, it is certainly worth it
Think about it . . . if you pay $600 a month, your landlord ends the year with $7,200 of income from you alone. After five years, thatís $36,000 that youíve paid out odds are your rent would have gone up over that period, so the amount youíve paid out is likely much higher. From this money, your landlord is not only getting income, but also getting tax deductions, business write-offs, and capital appreciation. Youíre busy making him rich! Donít get me wrong, you did have a place to sleep at night . . .
Okay, so I definitely have an opinion here. Do whatever you can to get out there and find a home to buy! You and your wallet will thank me.
Remember: Make sure you do not stretch yourself too thin with your payments. Buy only what you can afford. Be sure to consult with an attorney or accountant to protect yourself.

Personal Branding Techniques for Real Estate Agents and Brokers
A key principle of marketing is to find something unique about what you offer as the basis of your sales message. Even if what you offer is a commodity, there is always one thing unique in your business -- you. A big error made by many Real Estate Agents and Brokers is to try to develop an institutional image like most big companies. People do not like to do business with institutions; they like to do business with people. In advertising terms, branding is the "image" created in the minds of people when they see or hear a name, product or logo. Companies invest a lot of money in creating and maintaining their brand, but the Internet has sparked a new trend called "Personal Branding". Personal branding isnt only important for promoting a product, business or political cause, but also for promoting yourself for advancement within your own organization. It involves developing your personal reputation. Branding can be done to any product, or any person. Before undertaking an exercise in personal branding, however, consider your distinctive strengths and abilities and what they offer the market place. Traditionally personal branding was for sporting celebrities who gained enormous coverage and following through their sporting prowess. Movie stars have also had celebrity status and association since movies began.

Networking - Outside The Box
We receive numerous emails regarding how to network. For those of us in lease purchasing its easy, for others not so easy.For example, those in the travel business have been hit hard by business slowing down. Why not try to network with some of the tanning salons, and offer discounts to those individuals for cruises and/or exotic locals. Or network with B&B owners in your own state or neighboring states and offer your customers weekend package deals.Spas are becoming very popular. Network with some in your own state or surrounding states and then offer specials to your clients.
Optimizing for Visitors not Search Engines
Most people feel that optimizing is to target the search engines alone. In my opinion, this is not the only case. Optimization requires a balance of traffic enhancements and a user friendly atmosphere that provides clear navigation. Most will agree it would be much better to have people accept offerings from a Site, rather than masses of people who do nothing. Here are some general tips and thought to make pages user-friendly.
