Be forewarned, this post isn't a get rich quick idea, or a magical formula to turn straw into gold.  Not much comes without some hard work to even the best of us these days, not since at least 2005 that is, when phantom property values topped out.What I am suggessting is that investment realestate owners who are looking at their bottom line closely these days absolutely have a choice to save $100, $200 or more per month right away!  To get to the point, I'm talking about property management.  Take the following very short quiz: Do you live within 30 minutes of your investment properties? Yes/No Can you balance your own checkbook?  Yes/No Do you have a computer with a printer, or typewriter? Yes/No Did you answer Yes to #1?  If so you are an excellent cantidate.  Items 2 and 3 are option...

Large trees are such an unnoticed asset for a home. They help with cooling bills in the summertime, and help make your yard attractive to wildlife like birds and squirrels.

This home has a nice nature trail behind it. While I was watching the movie "City Slickers", they asked the question "what is the one most important thing in life"?

Whatever happened to small talk being centered on the weather?  It seems like a new sheriff's in town on common conversation and it's the housing market.  This isn't anything new at this point...it's been this way for nearly a year now.   Many agents seem to think it's best to give people what they want to hear?  The thing people most want to hear is that it's getting better.  Is it?  Only time will tell.  It's all about finding a bottom to bounce off of.  Same as the stock market, and nearly every other market at this point.  At the beginning of 2008, many people thought we had found the bottom...but the rest of the year left them a bit surprised to find otherwise.  The end of 2008 left it hard to judge, with wintertime and the holidays generally being the slowest part of the year rega...

A while back I wrote a blog about my own personal experience in searching for property listing in another state in order to do a between the job interview, whirl wind tour of listings with my wife in a town we would be looking at moving to should she land a new job in that state.  This is a follow up to that experience, as the owner of a Kansas business and property marketing company I have had to file away mistakes, problems, typo's, and a wide assortment of things I have learned over the years that did not have the desired result or down right made my company look bad to the customers I was seeking to gain or to my exsiting clients, so I could be darn sure it never happened again......Ever! In my business if you make your client look bad you won't have clients very long, so it has alw...

Wanted Lawrence Kansas Real Estate investors to "flip" houses who don't want to work on the flip. I have the knowledge of where the best deals in Lawrence homes for sale can be found. I have found $275,000 homes for sale for $215,000 for a buyer. I have found $215,000 homes for sale for $131,900 for a buyer. I have found $99,000 homes for sale for $25,000 for a buyer. I have found $176,000 homes for sale for $126,000 for a buyer. These are county verifiable transactions. I have found similar great bargains with motivated sellers, short sales, and foreclosures and I need some investors to buy them who don't want to work on them.  I have some flippers who have the skills to flip houses but need investors to partner with to get the job done. Scenario:  Investors buy Lawrence Kansas homes f...

"Are You Crazy?" may seem a bit drastic when approaching Lawrence Kansas and the surrounding area FSBO (For Sale By Owner) homes for sale sellers but I have to wonder if you are? As Realtors and agents, we are trained to take precautions in who we go out to meet to show houses but I don't believe you as the average home owner consider the risk of just letting a person who drives up to your house and asks to see your Lawrence Kansas homes for sale. Is your life or the lives of your family worth so little that you would just let strangers come into your home?  Unknowingly, you have chosen trying to save a commission over safety. Here's a tip and a safety solution.  Call Rob Lang at 785-393-2274 and ask me to show your home for you for FREE!  Your safety is worth it to me to do this for yo...

On Wednesday the 12th ,2008, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a press release announcing the finalization of its changes to the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA).  HUD has released a Fact Sheet on the final Rule as well as a copy of the new GFE and HUD-1. For the first time ever, HUD will require mortgage lenders and brokers to provide borrowers with an easy-to read standard Good Faith Estimate (GFE) that will clearly answer the key questions they have when applying for a mortgage including:      What is the term of the loan?      Is the interest rate fixed or can it change?      Is there a pre-payment penalty should the borrower choose to refinance at a later date?      Is there a balloon payment?      What are total closing costs? I don't know w...
