Selling Your Home in the Winter

Winter may seem like  a daunting time to sell your home but it can in fact work in your favor!  The holidays may be a tough time but homes always look cozy and warm dressed up for the holidays.

Buyers looking for homes during the holidays and winter months are serious.  There are usually circumstances which make finding a new home soon imperative.  They are ready to buy and your home may be just what they are looking for.

Another advantage of selling in the winter months, is that there may be less competition when you are looking for a house to buy.

Start your preparations right after the holidays and have your home ready to go on the market! Keep it clean and simple and you’ll have your home sold in no time.

Don’t wait until spring! Put your house on the market now!

5 Tips to Launch Your Real Estate Career

You’ve just passed your real estate exam and are ready to start your new career.  Here are 5 tips to help you launch.

1. Treat it like a Job. Go to work at 9 am (or whatever your designated “working hours” are) and start your day. Offer to help with what is needed. Dress and act professionally. Act “AS IF”.  Sign up for uptime and be available when the phone rings.  Start your marketing strategy with daily prospecting calls.  Send out your postcards announcing your new profession to the neighborhood.  Start handing out your business calls.

2. Follow a training Plan. Whatever your sales training is, do it the way it is laid out for you. Don’t get creative or skip corners. If your company does not provide a training program, use other resources to follow one. Make your car a traveling classroom. Shadow one of the more experienced realtors in the company.  Offer to help them at an Open House or showing appointment.  It is a great learning experience.

3. Join a Committee at the Board of Realtors. Become embedded in your professional board. Take advantage of what State and National Associations of Realtors has to offer. Treat other Realtors as your A+ customers. Go to events!


4. Volunteer on a Local Level. Become an integral part of your community. Southcoast- Serves ( has many volunteer opportunities if you don’t have any favorites. There are many opportunities to help out in your community.  Volunteer at school or sporting events.  It will help you get noticed.  Wear your company swag so people will be aware of your new profession.

Finance Options When Buying a Home

It’s a great time to be looking for a new home.  With that, comes all the financial decisions.  Do you have cash or will you be looking for a mortgage loan?

There are many options for residential loans.  Some of these options include:





State Housing Programs


Renovation Programs

New Construction End Loans for Permanent Financing

Reverse Mortgages

Are you looking for a fixed rate or interest-only loan?  There are also adjustable rates and hybrid arms

You may be looking for a 1-4 family property, a single-family home or a second home.  You could also be an investor looking to flip a home.

All these options may be confusing but the best first step is to speak with a mortgage lender and discuss your options.  Before you start looking at homes you are interested in, it’s important to meet with a mortgage specialist.  They can explain the different types of loans you may qualify for.  They will also look at your financial situation and talk to you about the price range you may want to be looking at and can provide you with a pre-approval when you find a house that fits your needs and budget.

Once you know your price range, your real estate agent can show you homes that fit your criteria and budget.  It is critical to talk to your lender first since a pre-approval is needed when you are ready to make an offer on a house.  If you are unsure which lender to start with, talk to your agent.  They can make suggestions on local banks and mortgage companies.  Your loan officer and your agent will be with you every step of the way to help the transaction proceed smoothly and keep you informed at every step.

Visit for all your real estate needs.  Our agents are your community experts in our local BOLDTowns and can help you find the home you are dreaming of.

Are you thinking of starting a real estate career?  Agent Rising Real Estate School has you covered! We offer online courses to help you earn your hours needed as well as all the tools you need to pass your real estate exam.  We also offer Broker Courses!
