Training, training and more trainingnbsp; I am here to tell you about the wonderous onboarding program that we have established to ensure the success of all of our agents. It has morphed into an eight meeting series, where we meet once or twice a week to work one-on-one with the agents to prepare them for this business. I think that this really makes us stand out in the crowd as far as all real estate companies are concerned. So lets get right into it... Meeting 1 - The Essentials I named this meeting the essentials because I believe these are the bare minimums the agent needs to know how to use at our company. In this meeting, we (one of our trained onboarding specialist) goes over how the agent gets into his/her professional e...

Published by: Daisy Gregg Why Do I Need a New Lenderrsquo;s Policy? The original lenderrsquo;s title insurance policy protects the lenderrsquo;s interest on the original loan. With the new refinanced loan, the original loan will be paid off, and the lender will require protection of its interest for the new loan. From the lenderrsquo;s standpoint, a refinanced loan is no different than any other mortgage loan. In addition, if the loan is sold in the secondary market, investors like Fannie Mae will require the security of title insurance on the property. The good news is the consumer receives a discount on lenders policies for refinance during the first seven years of the loan. If your refinanced loan is with the same lend...

You not only need it for the late or early hours but coffee is the beverage you make deals over.

These up-and-coming Austin communities have become increasingly popular for a range of reasons, such as the quality of homes, parks, and shops, as well as proximity to the cities top amenities, affordability, and general attractiveness of the community in general.

It should go without saying that buying a home is a huge step in anyone's life and it requires plenty of planning. The problem is that many first-time buyers don't know how to make sure they're ready when it comes time to buy, which could mean that you're missing out on amazing homes. This is particularly important in the hot Austin real estate market, where most homes don't stay on the market long and sellers won't wait for buyers who don't have all their ducks in a row.

But even though preparing to buy a home may seem a bit daunting to inexperienced buyers, having a clearly defined list of thing you need to do before buying your first Austin home will make things much easier. That's why we've outlined five steps that will help you be ready to snap up a gorgeous home in one of your desired Austin neighborhoods.

As we talked about last time, interest rates have gone up a bit. So what does that mean for the buyer? Should you wait? Well, since rates are predicted to continue to go up, the answer is no, you should not wait. As this article points out, yes, the record low rates are gone, for now at least. Who knows what the future will hold. Most economist are saying that the next five years will see an increase in rates. So certainly waiting is only going to make your house more expensive. Sure, you could wait for the rates lower than 4% to come back. But you may be waiting a long time. The odds point to us getting back to 6-8% in the next few years, long, long before we get back to the sub 4% rates again. So, don't let a small jump in rates now sc...
