For all of the landlords out there: Be careful of tax season when you have a vacancy. Even if the prospective tenant has the cash up front, you still want to verify proof of income and do the credit, criminal and past rental history before you hand over those keys.

Here is the skinny on real estate investing? It is not always pretty. Real money can be lost in renting or flipping homes. Real Estate is always a gamble. You have to remember that fact before you jump in the waters!! But, if you have a plan and are flexible with changes, you will be able to ride the rough waters.

WHAT'S YOUR ESCAPE PLAN?
Have a game plan on where you will go when your home is being shown to buyers. During the week, this can easy but during the weekends this could be problematic especially if you have pets or young children. Talk with friends, scope out spots you can go pretty easily and always have a box of toys and needed items in the trunk of each car you own.  That way, if a showing lasts a little longer you and your children can be entertained.  And remember, if your home is priced right and looks great, you will not have to do this for long.
Happy Selling!!

IS SPRING HERE EARLY?

No, not in terms of the weather but in terms of home sales...I am seeing that more and more home owners are taking advantage of low inventory rates and interest rates and putting their homes on the market now instead... of during the Spring months. And, they are benefiting big time. Many of the homes that have come on the market in Northeast Raleigh have gone under contract within the first three weeks... Are you next? Inbox me for more information on listing your home in #Raleigh!

Equity is making a comeback!!! Home Values are starting to really rise!! How do I know? Whenever I compare the tax value of a home against the listing price it tells me a lot. In Wake County, taxes were last assessed at the end of 2007. Basically, right before the bottom fell out in real estate. In the last few years, list prices were ALWAYS under the tax value. But, as we move forward in 2014, more asking prices are above and right at tax value. This means many areas in Wake county are at 2006 and 2007 price points. Let's hope this is the trend throughout 2014!! Happy Selling to all of the homeowners out there!!

Equity is making a come-back!!! Yes, according to real estate analysts, home owners should see their equity return in 2014. After several years of negative equity, I know this is GREAT news!! Here in the Raleigh area, home values are up ...again and home values have been increasing for the last 12 months. That means, if you want to sell your home, this may be the BEST time to do it. Interest rates AND inventory are LOW!! Be the first in your neighborhood to list! Don't wait until Spring when 10 other neighbors decide it's a good time for them as well.
