When is the Best Time to Move
John Carle & Sharon Gregresh
As Realtors, we are often asked, "When is the best season to move" This is a tough question, one we cannot answer for you. Most people are asking about price, do they fluctuate throughout the year NO. Just the number of homes on the market changes; of course the number of buyers changes as well. Hopefully this article will help you make this decision for yourself and your family.
Time of Year
A common "urban legend" is that you get more money for your home in the spring. This is simply not true. Seasons have no bearing on how much you get for your home, but it does affect how much competition you have. True, more people look to purchase a home in the spring. At the same time, there are more homes on the market for you to compete with. Unfortunately, this is also the time of year when all the "window shoppers" are out. These are people looking for renovation ideas, or who are just "killing an afternoon" looking at open houses. In the winter you will have fewer showings... but theyll be serious buyers. So, should you NOT sell in the spring Not at all. There is no good or bad time of the year to sell your home. The best time is when you are financially and emotionally ready to move. Not before, and not after.
Many parents wait until the end of a school year before moving the family. At first glance, this makes a lot of sense. Let them finish the year in comfortable surroundings, and dont disrupt their lives until summer holidays have begun. But consider this... Children need friends to play with. By moving the kids a couple of months BEFORE the end of the term, they have the ability to meet their new friends in the new neighborhood. By having these friends, the move will be easier and less confusing for the children. And parents! If the kids have friends to play with... they wont be underfoot while youre trying to unpack and organize the house!
Time is on your side
The very fact that you have time on your side could save you thousands. Many sellers that have waited have put themselves in a "have to sell" situation, and have had to accept offers for less than what they wanted. The fact is, when you have time on your side you wont feel pressured to accept an offer thats less than what you want.
Your next property could cost more
If youre buying a new property thats more expensive, you could cost yourself plenty. For example, lets say youre selling a $100,000 property and looking to buy a $150,000 property. If both properties appreciate at the same rate of 3% over the next six months, you gain $3,000 on your existing property. However, the $150,000 property will now cost you $154,500 or a net loss of $1,500. The best suggestion is to get into the home you want; before it gets out of reach for you!
Juggling The Day With A Deal
Doing deals with sellers is why you went into lease purchasing. Again, using organization and time management is very important here.
Is "Earning a Living" Stopping You
Every year, people resolve that THIS New Year will be different: "This will be the year that I write that book, start that new venture, double my income, take more time off to spend with my family," and the list goes on and on. However, when people think about pursuing their dreams, they often squash the idea because it doesnt seem practical.
How to Get the Best Price for Your House
The best price to sell your home is always determined by how you compare against your competition, the house down the street. If your property looks better than the next guyís the customer will buy yours.

The Art of Writing a Check
Although it may seem very obvious, many people do not know how to write checks. With the birth of a generation that regularly uses ATM check cards, online bill payment systems, and credit cards more often than checks, check writing may risk extinction due to ignorance.
Home loan applications made easy
You have finally found the home of your dreams. You have searched all over and are ready to purchase it. Before you even make your offer you should seek out the financing first. In some cases, it is easier to have a pre-approval in hand before making any financial commitment through a contract. Why get your hopes up after you purchase the home when you can buy with assurance and wait by the settlement table. Before you can buy anything, you will need to get accepted by a reputable lender. There is much you will need to know, as this will be the largest purchase you will ever make. You will need to fill out a mortgage application first.
Marketing Your Automated Testing Team
It wonít matter how effective your WinRunner Team is if no-one outside your immediate organization knows about your accomplishments. For this reason, marketing your WinRunner Team is vital to your success. When times get tough, executives look for cost-cutting measures. The QA group is often the first on the chopping block. If these high level executives donít fully understand and appreciate the value of your service, they will see the cost of WinRunner licenses and maintenance as well as the highly skilled, but also more expensive WinRunner engineers as a nice place to start trimming the budget. They will not have the time or luxury to launch an investigation to see if these services are really necessary.
A home business is by far the best way to support yourself if you just cannot stand working for others for less money than you need to survive.Itís also the best way to get out of a good paying job that just takes up too much of your precious short life working for someone else.

This information stored usually shows account balances, previous transactions, current balances, interest paid and electronic scans of their checks. Anywhere you can get to a computer, your bank account is right in your hands, usually in real-time.
