“Home” Ward Bound
Impactful Real Estate News
Thank You, and...



In last month’s edition, it brought about an extra opportunity to say Thank You for being a valuable part of our business. This month as nation, we give thanks to our fallen soldiers for the sacrifices they made for our country. Remembrance Day rejuvenated interest in recalling the war and military sacrifice and it remained a day to honour the fallen and calls to remember the horror of war and to embrace peace. We are grateful and thankful to be living in a peaceful country. 


 
Another Holiday is around the corner- CHRISTMAS! As most begin to prepare for the Holiday season, plan Christmas get-togethers and the like, it’s easy to become wrapped up in all that we have to do to ensure a fun, joyful time for all we are responsible for and overlook all that we have to be thankful for. Gratitude though is an attitude that is  contagious!

Seller Secret Episode #6 Tax Assessments - What They Really Mean

Tax Man’s Assessment for your home is lower but why???



Today to talk to you about seller's secret number six. So, remember, if you like these daily tips, don’t forget to follow us on our page and turn on notifications to be notified every time.
Some people think that tax assessments is what the true value of their home is, and that's not really the case. The difficulty here is that assessments are based on a number of key points that don't relate to a market value of a home.
So, if you look at your tax bill and you notice that the tax assessment for your home is a lot less than what you think your home would sell on the market for, don't freak out. Actually, as a matter of fact, you don't want the city, the tax guys, to assess your market value for a lot higher, because then your property taxes are going to be higher. 
So, the true value of your home is not the tax value of your home. Market value is based on sold prices. 
And if you're looking for a fr ...

This Guarantee Will Make You Thousands More For Your Home

Are you thinking if you should buy first or sell first? We call this the real estate catch 22…Most buyers find themselves in this dilemma.


Today will talk about a guarantee that will make you thousands of dollars extra for your home. Have you ever wondered if you've ever listed your home, thought about listing your home, kind of been in that home selling mindset or if you do decide with an agent, what is there, how do you know that you actually get the price that you anticipated or on the money that you anticipated for your home? 
You know, and most people just kind of list their home with an agent or by themselves and just kind of hope for the best wait around for an offer to come or a buyer to decide what your home is worth.
And you know, this is kind of playing, this is gambling with the most expensive property or expensive investment you've made. 
And we don't want you to make that mistake. You don't want to play blind archery with your property, with o ...

5 Tips To Finding The Perfect Real Estate Agent

Do you think all real estate agents are equal? Get same results? or charge the same commission?



So, what are some tips? One of the tips that I like to make sure that all sellers know about is asking them about the buyers in their database for their particular property or their particular area. Do they have any buyers in their database looking for that area and can they show it to you?
And then the second one is finding out how many homes they sell as a team collectively because they more homes they sell probably more capabilities they have to do for your home at the end of the day. This is what you want to know.
And also do your homework on the listing agent that you're going to work with. Make sure that they have good reviews. Make sure their reputation is good online. You don't want to be stuck with an agent you can't get out of a contract with.
Having the buyer is the most important thing, but the second most important thing for me is how are they going to hold themselves c ...
