You have to understand that you will always find someone that will say YES if you are willing to go through all the NO's. A lot people talk about cold calling is dead, but it's not I have built my entire business by cold calling. The people most likely saying is cold calling is dead is because they either suck on the phone or no that many people fear rejection of the over the phone and if they can find another way instead of cold calling they will. At the end of the pay people do love speaking to other people but they don't like people that did not capture their attention. This is why in the first 4 seconds something about your voice your energy through the phone captivates them to listen to you. FIRST RULE: everyone LOOOVVEESSSS talking about themselves so..... guess, WHAT! ? Start asking them questions that will get them to talk about themselves and all you have to do is listen and keep them feeling comfortable speaking with you.

It's not hard but with the world of social media people have forgotten that people still LOVE speaking to other people. We all do it everyday. So become interesting, standout, find your voice and pick up the phone and start making cold calls. AND if you are too afraid or just one of those types of people that knows their strength is not in starting a conversation with a stranger but very good once the conversation has been started by someone else and they can then take over from there or find an assistant or hire a part time telemarketer or hire companies like Exclusive Calls to dial numbers for you for $0.75 a dial. It's easy for me all I do is email them the list I want worked and the script and they send me back the results.

Here is the truth if you want it bad enough you will get it, knock on doors and pick up the phone and cold call. Pick one and just do it.

It depends. If this is going to be your forever home, then losing a bedroom for your dream kitchen may be worth it. Having a home that functions they way you want it to is important.


However, if you know at some point in the future you will want to sell this home, you may want to do more research before going forward with renovations.

Are you talking about taking away a 4th bedroom, 3rd bedroom or 2nd bedroom? It can make a difference in future value of your home and number of buyers wanting a home like yours. Look at the recent sales in your neighborhood of comparable homes with your current number of bedrooms and those with one fewer bedroom. That will give you an idea of how buyers value bedrooms in your neighborhood.

Are there other options available to you? Perhaps opening a wall from the kitchen to the living room would make the kitchen appear more spacious without giving up bedrooms? Or changing the layout of your kitchen?

Which is why I often suggest home owners talk with a Realtor who lists and sells in your immediate area before jumping into a project. Although you can get estimates for the cost of a remodeling project, an experienced Realtor will be able to give you an idea as to the estimated market value of your home after the renovation project is completed. The more information you have up front, the better choices you can make.

Most likely no. You need to refer to the contract you signed when you joined them as to what happens to pending sales when you leave. Some give you your agreed to commission, some half and some none. You need to refer to your contrct ... more

Here is a quote of Alex Cohen, Lead Commercial Specialist at Core.

“Like many who have enjoyed vacationing in Miami, I was initially drawn to consider buying Miami Beach condominiums as investment about two and a half years ago. However, through assessing condo pricing and condo rents, I quickly discovered that likely returns would be 4% or less. Instead I chose to invest in a unique neighborhood just north of Miami’s hot “design district” called Buena Vista filled with modest single family homes built mostly in the 1930s and 1940s. In Buena Vista, I found and invested in homes that generate for me returns from year-round renters between 5.5 and 8 percent because they make 2-3 bedrooms homes on small lots accessible, particularly to millennial renters, at rents equivalent to what they would pay for a Miami Beach studio or small one bedroom apartment.”

I'm not sure about Miami, but if it's still actual for you go to the link below.
