Renter Would Be Owner

You will never hear me say "everyone" would choose owning over renting, but there are a fair number of folks who are renting right now who would prefer to be owners. Which ever side you are on is fine - it is what is right for you that matters. This is a short video. If you know someone who might be helped by this information, please do share. Life is about sharing is it not? Thank you!

How High Do You Score?

Some folks think they cannot qualify for a mortgage and a house because their scores are too low. The question is - have you checked, recently? It is best to know your credit scores and what you are working with for a variety of reasons, not just to buy a house, but because credit scores impact every day life in many ways.

You can get free reports and scores several times during the year! Find out how right here on this blog: https://www.sanantoniorealestate.blog/p/mortgages-and-credit.html

Still a Seller's Market

Anything under a 6 month inventory supply is considered a seller's market. Even though the supply of homes for sale has increased, we are still short of demand. What is worse, is homes on the lower end, the ones considered to be "starter homes" are even in shorter supply. If you have a home and have thought about moving on, moving up - this is a great opportunity. Check out the video. Check out the market. Call me. Let's talk. Let's do it.

You Need This App

I don’t believe that I have ever headlined with a “you need this” before – but seriously folks – have a look at this app – and it is free. They gave me a bunch of licenses to give away.

Whether you are a home owner or a renter - this is important for you.

So – first, watch the short video. then, some of the things I think are really cool – you buy something like a refrigerator, scan it and – you have the item in your home inventory “just in case”, you have quick and easy access to the appliance manual if you need it and if it is a device with suggested maintenance you’ll get reminders. You will also get other reminders – like I got one today to check my fire extinguishers and make sure they are in working order. How great is that.

A couple times a year I think they send you a greeting from me. This is not something I abuse because I hate spam and I think you lose business that way. So much for that.

Oh, one other – on the cool side. We have uploaded various business that we have used or have been recommended – so if something breaks or gets cranky, just check the available. AND – the app allows you to customize your own. You can add businesses you like or frequent and if you want to recommend them for everyone, send me a note and I’ll do that.

Hope to see you there soon. Here is the app: https://www.sanantoniorealestate.blog/p/home-pro.html

PS: If you are not in the San Antonio area, go ahead anyway, you will just need to put in your own favorite local resources. All the other benefits are worth it!
