Are you an Overachiever?

What is your definition of an overachiever?  Are you one?

  1. An overachiever often believes that success can only come from power, money or status.

What would your life look like if you were a true success?  Try mapping out a plan for other areas of your life~family, professional networks, investments, travel, books, physical fitness and more.

2.  Most overachievers suffer from negative thoughts and especially “I can’t” beliefs.

Things like “I can’t afford to do something falls into this category.  This self talk really means you won’t even try.  You can overcome obstacles with talent, conditions, time and the right amount of ingenuity.

3.  Classify and conquer your flaws.

If you think you have any flaws at all, you must work wholeheartedly to resolve them.  In order to achieve true happiness embrace the notion that you may have a few things left to learn and then actively aspire to gain the knowledge and wisdom to overcome them.

Preparing for a Home Inspection

To properly prepare your home for a home inspection you will want to repair any damage to steps and walkways and declutter around the front door.  Make sure your doorbell works and make sure all of your window locks and seals are in good working condition.  Replace any missing shingles and arrange to have your furnace and central air conditioning serviced prior to inspection.  Fix leaky faucets and fixtures and repair grout around tubes and sinks.  If the home has battery operated smoke detectors, put in fresh batteries  and test prior to inspection.

You will need to allow approximately 3 hours for the inspection.  Do not plan on being there when the inspector is there.  Make sure the inspector has full access to any and all locked areas.  If you have pets make sure that your pet goes with you or you have them properly crated.  It is also a good idea to have valuable and medications locked out of sight for peace of mind.

9 Tips for Buying a Vacation Home

  1.  Consider how you will use the home.  Will it just be for family and friends or do you plan to rent it as well?
  2. Evaluate Locations.  Are there enough amenities and attractions to keep you and your renters coming back year after year?
  3. Talk to locals.  What do they love about the area?  What is changing?  Are you hearing anything negative?
  4. Study local laws.  If you plan to rent the home, local rules may restrict rental periods or cap the number of days you can rent each week, month, or year.
  5. Calculate costs.  Along with mortgage, insurance, property taxes, and association fees, plan for wear and tear.  A good rule of thumb is 1 to 2 % per year to plan for maintenance and repairs.  Also, don’t forget the property management fee.
  6. Talk to an Accountant.  This person can advise you on such issues as the tax implications of rental income and changes in federal tax laws that could impact deductions.
  7. Test before you buy.   Once you have settled on an area, you should rent in every season so you can gauge busy and slow periods for rentals.
  8. Work with an experienced local sales agent.  Pick someone who knos the community and who can recommend the other experts you will want to consult.  Consider agents with Certified Residential Specialities (CRS) and Resort and Second Home Property Specialists certifications (RSPS).
  9. Take your time.  Don’t let the excitement of one great vacation push you into an impulse buy.  Educate yourself and listen to your agent.

I hold a lot of certifications including the CRS and RSPS certifications.  I have the local knowledge to go the distance for you.  I hope to hear from you soon.
