    7 Steps to Buying a Short Sale

    Today’s real estate market is yielding great opportunities for home buyers, such as short sales. Short sales, however, can be a complicated and often frustrating process for both buyers and sellers. From home inspection company Pillar To Post (www.pillartopost.com), here are some important tips for pulling off a successful-short sale transaction:

    1. Finding Short-sale Properties

    Working with a Top 5 Agent

    Because Your Real Estate Investment Demands Nothing Less

    If you think all real estate agents possess the same level of professional skills and deliver the same level of results for home-selling and -buying consumers, think again…

    Qualifying for membership in the Top 5 in Real Estate Network®—a network of the “best of the best” agents in North America—means a real estate professional must not only demonstrate proven results and possess the experience necessary to successfully navigate real estate transactions, but also offer a wide range of marketing and negotiating strategies to ensure the best possible outcome for your home sale or purchase. By working with a Top 5 Member, not only will you benefit from full-service resources but from a rich array of relevant real estate information provided to consumers exclusively through the Top 5 in Real Estate Network.

    Here are just a few of the areas in which Anita Rich can offer home buyers and sellers specialized assistance that leads to great results:

    • First-Time Buyers – Top 5 Members can guide you through the details of choosing a new home and take you step by step through the often confusing real estate process.
    • Move-up Assistance – Today’s market represents a great opportunity for those homeowners who wish to move-up to a larger home, a vacation home, or purchase an investment home.
    • If Your Home Isn’t Selling or Hasn’t Sold – Ask for the Top 5 publication, There’s Only One Reason Why Your Home Didn’t Sell… and It Isn’t Price, which shows homeowners why the real reason why their home isn’t selling is ineffective marketing. Top 5 Members offer specialized marketing programs to ensure your home sells for the best possible price.
    • What You Should Demand as a Home Seller – Ask your Top 5 Member for a copy of the Top 5 publication, What Every Home Seller Should Demand…of Their Real Estate Agent to learn how they are better positioned than the average agent to handle all your real estate needs.
    • Are You a Candidate for Short Sales or Distressed Property Resolutions? Ask your Top 5 Member for a copy of Top 5’s The Four R’s of Short Sales, which takes distressed property owners through the many options that are available to them.
    • What is Your Home Really Worth? Top 5 Members will work with you to develop an accurate analysis of your home’s value, taking into account market conditions in your area as well as your home’s unique assets.

    March 1, 2011—(MCT)—Choosing a financial planner is like choosing a good doctor. We want someone who’s highly trained, professionally licensed, completely ethical and has your financial

It found that 34% of adults had no retirement money stashed away and 27% had no personal savings, as of November 2010. That’s up 4% and 5%, respectively, from the previous year.

    “With the economic downturn, people are a little bit gun-shy about what to do with their money and are looking for advice,” said Ellen Turf, CEO of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors in Arlington Heights, Ill. “Everyone’s afraid and wants to know: Where do I invest; where do I earn more interest; how do I fund my retirement?”

    Finding someone trustworthy to help you answer those questions takes a little bit of homework, but it’s not difficult. When considering any type of financial professional, there are three essentials: credentials, credibility and compensation...[read more...]
