Real Estate – Is it Coming Back Now?

A mere glance at the leading financial papers in America would have you believe that real estate has bottomed, and is already on the ascent again. If you were to listen to the commentators or talking heads, they want you to believe that housing prices have bottomed, and are working their way up again. The evidence they would give is the dramatic increase in sales activity that the statistics are showing. Let’s look at some vital statistics that will better inform real estate investors as to what reality really is.

The National Association of Realtors reported in August of 2009 the following statement, Existing home sales rose in July for the fourth consecutive month”. They were up about 2.2% from June, the preceding month, and the numbers as expected, are adjusted for seasonal purposes. It seems outright bullish on the face of it, and that’s what the media wants you to believe. We say, not so fast. In our opinion, they are completely misleading the public. It’s intentional we think because they are biased.

The real estate industry has a trade publication which is called “Inside Mortgage Finance”. We looked at the latest survey done for the professional real estate industry and this surprisingly is what we found. Now remember the talking heads on television never study this kind of material. The results of the survey were plain to see, but were written in such a way as to inform the professional real estate player and at the same time mislead casual reader. The publication pointed out that 36% of all sales involved what they referred to as “non-distressed” properties. That’s more than one out of every three properties that were sold.

What does it really mean when you get right down to it? You have to reverse the numbers to get at the real meaning. It means that 64% or almost two thirds of all real estate sales involve DISTRESSED PROPERTY SALES. Think about it, if 36% is non-distressed, than 64% must be distressed. They are trying to play with our brains to mislead us. This also means a huge number of real estate sales taking place in this country are buyers looking and acting only on properties that are in financial distress, plain and simple. This is not a bull market in real estate under any conditions that we can see.

There are more peculiarities evident. In a different section of the article, we discovered something else that was also misleading. Let’s look at only the non-distressed sales for a moment which compose 36% of all real estate sales according to the survey. Non-distressed to us means exactly that, non-distressed, or voluntary. The article reveals that when dealing with so called “non-distressed properties”, only 31% of them involved were “unforced or optional”.

The implications are clear to us that 69% of the sales which were termed non-distressed property sales were “FORCED” for reasons not disclosed. A less than brilliant person could figure this one out. The conclusion is …

Title Companies Duties: Doing the Legal Work for Your Home-buying

Purchasing a property, especially in real estate is a big financial leap for anyone. This is why you would need to get all the help that you can get so you can land a good deal and avoid unnecessary hassles in the future.

A title company is one of the best choices in aides when it comes to buying a home. Why? Because they’ll do most of the dirty legal work that you might find hard to do on your own. They will look at every nook and cranny of the property that might turn out as a complication for you once you’ve already purchased the home and clean it, so you can have a good title.

Title company duties and how they can make your life easier

Tons of title companies have already made their mark in the real estate business, having helped both the sellers make a better sale and the buyers get the best worth of their money. How they do it is based on their duties.

Again, as said earlier, these companies will make your life and home buying process a lot easier by handling the important things that you will find difficult to do on your own. One of these duties is drafting an “abstract of title” of the property you’re about to purchase. In order to complete this ‘abstract’, they would need to do a little investigation and digging into legal and public documents, which might be tiring for a regular homebuyer to do.

This little investigation will look into the background of the property. As it has already been owned at least once or twice before, surely, there’ll be a good number of paper trails on it, and some might not be too desirable for any home buyer. The title company will look for those and have them fixed for your benefit.

The things a title company will look into will include possible financial and legal hassles the property can pose to the new owner. For example, the company will look at open mortgages on the deed, as well as judgments and other kinds of lien that will be troublesome for an uninformed new homeowner. It will also look at the property’s tax records and bring to attention any unpaid taxes. Then, it will also look at the legality of the sale, like whether the selling party is fully entitled to put the property on the market and whether the posing homeowners are the real deal. It will also dig in possible disputes and claims that can prohibit or limit your use of the property or even grant the said use to other people who are not the property’s owners.

After drafting the abstract, the title company will then see to it that the arrangement of the legal papers and documents for the closing of the transaction will move forward. It will issue the “title opinion letter” or the “Commitment of Title Insurance”, depending on whether title insurance is needed or asked for …

Get rid of non-performers – It is better to have a small team of highly performing individuals than to have a large group which has several unproductive workers. Non-performers do not improve in spite of any efforts to teach them and providing any form of assistance to them. The more you tolerate them, the more you will spend money paying their salaries without their compensation in sales. Get rid of such people to serve the company’s resources and boost the morale of the rest of the team.

The Key Elements of Great Ceremonies

The Importance of Awards and Recognitions in the Business Industry

A business becomes successful due to the people that worked hard to reached its goal. A businessman’s hard work to make sure that his company is successful should be compensated with an award. Making sure that the work environment is full of enthusiasm is also one of the most significant things that a business owner or manager should do. Providing awards and recognition can encourage the employees to work with enthusiasm. Therefore, it would be best if the feeling of being stimulated is not only felt by the business owners, it should also be felt with the employees as well.

It can be a very daunting job for the employees if they are advised to work harder. Once you build a very stressful and laborious working environment, your workers will probably leave their jobs. Needless to say, it very tiresome to do something that you do not really like. It is not that easy to have a continuous business growth, however, it is very much achievable if business owners will motivate themselves as well as their employees to do well in order to receive a recognition or an award.

According to research, a good working environment can be created by using two of the most common and effective techniques such as recognition and rewards. A significantly high employment performance is enjoyed by those companies who provides their employees an award for doing their jobs well. This only means that a high employment performance can increase a worker’s effectiveness that will eventually lead to the growth of a business.

A reward plays a very important role in motivating the workers of a company regardless if it is given in a monetary on non-financial way. In some cases, financial rewards may not be that practical especially if a business is only small, thus, business owners must think of a different technique that is reasonably priced in order to provide their hard working employees the reward that they deserve. Always keep in mind though that a reward should only be given to those employees that are worthy of receiving it. Therefore, it would be best if you acknowledge and praise the efforts that your workers have made. Moreover, a recognition can cause a significant improvement on the performance of your employees.

You should also motivate yourself so that you will receive a local or international award from business sectors. The business world should also acknowledge the hard work that is done by business owners; hence, they should also give them the award that they deserve. Once a person feels that there is really nothing to achieve in doing a certain job, they tend to get tired easily. The praise and recognition that you receive from your boss is still very much different from the monetary reward that you can get.…
