Before you contact an estate agent it is a good idea to know exactly what you want. For example, if you know you want to buy a property in Spain it would be helpful to know as much as you can about your needs. This includes whether or not you want a property to rent in Spain, something to buy, or if you need to sell.

Even the best Real Estate Offices have a pecking order and exist on a currency of THIS FOR THAT. If you want decent leads, you are going to have to put in some phone, desk and office time. You’ll be expected to cover for other Agents who are too busy for their own Open Houses. The worst part will be driving around your share of people who just like looking at pretty houses, cannot seem to make up their minds about anything and probably have no intention of buying from you anyway. In short, any Broker worth their salt will try and squeeze as much money, time and effort out of new Agents as they can. The more experienced and successful people know better or go on to be Brokers. You have to learn quickly and focus on the money, not being the most popular person in the office.

As to how much money should be spent on marketing, it is really a subjective question to the property and the local area. The media channels that you use should be the right ones and the timing of promotion should be suited to the local area property investors and business community.

Home buying tip — Home inspections average between 0 and 0. This will depend on the size of the home and other factors. The cost of a home inspection is nominal when you consider the peace of mind it brings, but you still need to ask about the cost in advance. You don’t want to be surprised by an outrageously priced inspection after it has been completed.

The first 4 weeks of a property coming on the market are the most important to optimise the enquiry that could come in. A good percentage of your advertising funds should be directed into this window of time.

If you have a commercial property with a ,000 monthly mortgage, and two of your tenants move out, can you afford to be short ,000 a month in rent? Make sure you have enough cash reserves to cover that ,000 while those units sit vacant.

Cleanliness of the home. If we are going to ask a real estate agent about what usually turns off buyers, he will answer a “cleanliness problem”. One thing associated with this is the bad odors that the home has; bad odors may come from a stale tobacco, animal pets, and comfort rooms.

Commercial Deal Breakers And How To Avoid Them

Make sure your Purchase Contract states that the Seller will provide you with all Vendor Contracts. Make sure you also have a solid “Pro-Rations” Clause as well. A Pro-Rations Clause will ensure that the Seller only gets that fraction of the signing bonus equal to their fraction of their time in ownership.

That is what retail is all about. Juggling customer relations, employee issues, multiple tasks and thoughts (some of them great…but always forgotten) at the same time. Wow, aren’t retailers great! You bet they are, but it’s all this multi-tasking that hinders our potential greatness. Because of this we sometimes loose our focus and enthusiasm. That’s when, during good times or bad, we lose profit. So, in this first part of the article, let’s get refocused together and take an introspective look at our possible “low hanging fruit” or profit making potential.

Nothing could be more disruptive to your move into your new commercial property than to see it disrupted by a major road renovation or highway expansion in front of the building. So do some homework to make sure that access to your commercial property is in no danger of being slowed or stopped by building projects or other city improvements. Further, find out what is going on with the building. If the roof is in for repair or the plumbing is going to get overhauled, do you really want your new lease to lock you into that nuisance. So while talking to the landlord, also talk to some people behind the scenes who are “in the know” about your new commercial property location.

Time-shares are for hard-boiled people with great smiles. Most States allow several days for people who purchase Time Shares to change their minds, and many do. Beyond that kind of frustration, there are hassles with being paid. Like the rental biz, pay hassles, expenses deductions and commission disputes are common. Let’s face it. If you want to make the really big money in Real Estate, you are going to have to sell traditional properties.

Check out the properties that were purchased about 4 or more years ago. History shows that they will be in the next group of properties to come on the market for sale.

Listing a property can be a complex thing. Importantly it should be accurate and professional. Understand the market and the property type to make every listing a positive experience.
