Article written by Elaine Sisman, Realtor, The Keyes Company

The services of a professional Real Estate Agent can help you stay organized –saving you time, money, & stress. Especially helpful if you are a first-time home buyer! There is so much free information on-line, and it is fun to ‘window-shop’. However, when you hear “if you can click a mouse, you can buy a house”. I say, “please don’t”. Realtor services are generally free to buyers. I help you organize and focus on what’s important to you & your family. First, organize your “needs & wants”. What are the top 5-7 things you must have in your new home?

• Is it price, location, size, school district, square footage, pet-friendly, short commutes, parking,…?

• Do you know what you can afford? Clear up credit issues, get those finances organized.

• I refer you to a mortgage professional to get a “pre-qualification” letter. That helps clarify your ability to purchase and your price range.

• Meanwhile I do research based on your criteria. I email you pictures of properties in your price range. By a process of elimination we figure out what properties to view.

• I make those appointments and the Fun begins. When we find the right property I present & negotiate your offer based on price & terms .

• Once the offer is accepted I provide all parties with a time-line of contractual obligations.

• Behind the scenes I choreograph inspections, workmen, title, & mortgage professionals. I keep my clients organized for less stress during the purchase! I’m nicknamed “The Closer” because I work to close on time! After closing I maintain your files, and you become “clients for life”.

Buying property is fun! With proper organization, my clients can relax & enjoy their new home! Until they call me again to get organized for their next home move. Elaine Sisman, Realtor, The Keyes Company 305 975 7781 http://www.ElaineSisman.com ESismanRealtor@aol.com

CREATE YOUR ENERGY BUILDER

14 01 2011

OuttaSpace Newsletter ~ ISSUE 34

We often put off our projects, professional or personal- because we don’t have the motivation or time.  Even simple projects drain your energy if left incomplete.  A messy drawer or an unreturned phone call is enough to irritate you.
Make a list of energy drainers and choose at least one to mend, throw away, donate or organize this week.  You will be astounded how good you feel by removing these energy drainers one by one from your life!

TIP OF THE WEEK…

You are focused on the urgent and reacting. Stop. Evaluate. Do one important item before the urgent. Remember, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.
