Sellers: Know Your
Buyer Market


  Before you start a company, the first thing you should do is market research to determine your target market. This important step will help determine how successful you ultimately will be. The same is true when it comes to selling your home. Understanding the buyer market and who might be a good fit for your home will help ensure that you highlight the most vital features.
      "Just like the business of television advertising commercials, you need to know who your target audience is," writes Michael Corbet in his book Ready, Set, Sold! Before putting your home on the

Wondering What Your Home Is Worth?

Let me show you.





Major Campaign To Extend $8,000 Home Buyer Tax Credit Underway

     The House and Senate may have left Capitol Hill for their Summer break, but housing lobbyists are busy at work gearing up a major campaign to extend the $8,000 home buyer tax credit.

The association is sending out local teams of members to meet with congressmen and senators in their home districts, urging not only a one year extension of the credit, but an expansion of the concept to cover all home buyers next year, not just first-timers.

      Just like buying a home to live in, taking the real estate investment plunge requires taking stock of your financial goals, planning and lifestyle before taking the plunge.
      Pretty much like buying any property.
      If you've got the time, the money and the lifestyle that lends itself to managing a real estate investment, you are just about half way there.
      However, both halves are pretty big halves.
      The National Real Estate Investors Association says you've still got a lot of work to do. Here's how much.
Buy your own home first.
      The general rule of thumb is that buying your own home will not only put a roof over your head, but also background CONTINUED >>>
