This is the most obvious one. Real estate is the most common topic of conversation when you first meet someone. It’s unavoidable.
In some ways it’s good that property is so common. I’ve met plenty of people in my career who were too shy or too busy to ask me about their lives or careers. They may have been good at their jobs, but they didn’t have the passion for their lives that I do.
In my experience this is the most common conversation topic that I overhear people have when we meet. We dont only talk about the types of homes we’ve bought, but also the types of homes we’re trying to buy. There’s tons of information that can be gained here. For example, if you have a lot of money to blow on a house, you might try to get into an estate sale to sell off your stuff.
My wife is the type of person that usually doesnt get into estate sales because she doesnt trust it. However, we have been fortunate to sell a few things and have been offered a lot of opportunities to buy a home. For one of our first opportunities we got a home that was in such great shape, so bad that the sellers were willing to sell it for less. Even though we are a small family we manage to find all the right homes.
I’ve sold real estate for over 30 years and I’ve never seen anything quite like lot and block. In this video-game style game, you’re basically trying to figure out where you can get more land to build a house on. You can actually have lots of land, but in this game it’s not that easy.
For our purposes its important to emphasize the word ‘real’ because of the many ways that real estate has become so valuable over the years. In one of my first real estate deals I found a home that’s not even on the market yet. Its sitting mostly vacant, and one of the sellers has made some improvements to it that has brought it up to code.
You can buy real estate at a discount. Most auctions are set up so that you can bid on a house that’s just got a few hours worth of work done on it. In a lot of cases, a house is so cheap that you can afford it with just a couple hours worth of work in the ground.
That is often how real estate is bought and sold. But there is also the option to buy a house at a discount and then sell it on at a profit. The difference is that you can just sign the paperwork that allows you to sell the house for a profit without having to actually pay a “real” price for it and the seller is left with nothing to show for it. But that’s a little more complicated.
First of all, buyers and sellers have to talk. When a seller decides to sell a house, he or she always needs to get clearance from the city government. That means they need to be cleared of any violations of zoning regulations, or they will lose the house’s tax exempt status. It also means that they have to have the building inspection and zoning approval processes for the house.
