DREAM A LITTLE DREAM FOR…THEM

2_use_hear_moon_fotolia_68518813_l

Every night we recharge our batteries for several hours.  No distractions, usually pretty quite and mostly dark.  While this time is important for our minds it is equally important for our bodies.  Comfortable pajamas, soft sheets, maybe a fan overhead on low all help in taking us to dream land.  Do we dream of our wants and desires or run from our insecurities and fears?  I hope we are all shooting for the happy dream and leave our worries on the night stand.

So I am writing in February and I hope that you are dreaming of how to make this Valentines day a special one for your loved one, children or grand children.  No, I’m not going to spin this as a Real Estate Commercial so get that our of your mind now.    I’m looking to help you make your reality better than your dreams.  Take the time now to plan for the future (Valentines day).  A thoughtful gift or gesture cannot be acquired on a whim.  thinking deeply about the one you love and their needs and desires take time.  You could take it a step further like I have…..

In my phone I have a tab in my notes dedicated to gifts.  Nothing fancy, it’s not a special app, I just have a section for Wife, Child 1, Child 2….they each have their own special place.  Throughout the year I take notes on their wants and desires.  It might be laughing about a T.V. commercial, a reaction to a new desert or comment I heard about something they would like to do better.  I compile these notes and use them for birthdays, Christmas and yes Valentines day.  Don’t get me wrong I will always buy chocolate but adding a picture frame with a photo from the trip to the zoo or smore flavored jelly, well those can be the gifts that are remembered for a life time.  After all who wouldn’t enjoy smore flavored jelly?

Happy Valentines day!

1_use_live_sign_fotolia_72896278_l

Is to too late to say Happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy New Year?  I hope you have hit the ground running and are doing everything necessary to LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST!!!

I would like to share with you a major accomplishment in my career as a REALTOR.  On December 20th, I completed the final step to become a Real Estate BROKER.  I took the additional classes, cataloged the past five years of real estate transactions for the Texas Real Estate Commission and have passed both the National and Texas Broker tests.  I have elevated my license to the highest level and with that comes additional knowledge and experience for each of my clients.

That’s all for now.   Your referral is the greatest compliment and will always be followed with a BIG THANK YOU and a gift.

No pressure, no worries, just results that help you to rest assured that you will have the most trouble free and pleasant experience whenever it is time for your next real estate transaction.  I pledge to continue to deliver the highest levels of service to you, and to any of your friends or colleagues that you refer to me for assistance.  Thank you again for your trust and support over the years and here’s to a continued working relationship in the future.

Call (281-467-4691) or email (Scott@ScottCulberson.com) and let’s get started on YOUR Real Estate dreams, because…..

Is it time for a PERSONAL REVOLUTION? INTRODUCTION

1_CaronRoad_L Happy New Year!!!!!  Let me be the first to tell you this year…….

YOU CAN LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST!

 

“There is no reverse in life, only a Future in which you can steer it.”—Eric Kizer

With the New Year comes new opportunities.  My daughter asked me on New Years Eve if I was going to make any REVOLUTIONS.  Having just seen the Hunger Games Catching Fire the day before I thought she really meant that her dad was going to join the Revolution.  “No”, I told her, “I think you mean Resolution”.  “Yea”, I guess was her reply, “but what does Resolution mean anyway.”  I went on to explain the idea that with every year millions of people resolve to make themselves better by starting a new with a goal to achieve.  Now having explained it to an eleven year old, I got to thinking……………………..

Do you, do I, do we each of us need a Resolution or a PERSONAL REVOLUTION.   Do we need to Revolt against the established bad habits, negative behaviors, time to get off the hamster wheel  that we repeat day after day, month after month, year after year.   Is a Resolution enough.  NOPE, it’s not enough.  Maybe it’s time to get down to it and overthrow the old regime and start making your dreams come true from the inside out.

The old regime, of course, is you.  You, are your best friend and your worst enemy.  You may find that you don’t need a rebuild, just to redirect your energy so that you can reach your goals.  We’ll be working on specific parts of your life.  Even if you think you have a certain section figured out and buttoned up, go through the exercises you may find a chink in the armor you didn’t know was there.

Who am I….I am a Texas REALTOR, husband, father, Eagle Scout, Sam Houston State University Graduate, Theta Chi Fraternity member for life.  Now I would love to help you with your real estate needs, because I know……that if you make your real estate dreams a reality it would help you on your way to Living Life to the Fullest.  You may not need my help in that way…..today…..that’s ok keep me in mind, my real estate network is Global and yes I can help you in the most remote part of the world.  No pressure, no worries, just RESULTS.  So please continue to read my blog for more on how to navigate your PERSONAL REVOLUTION….

YOU CAN LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST

Jack and Jill Ask More Questions & Follow Up…The Home Buyer Checklist You’ve Been Looking for (15 of 15)

QUESTIONS“Jill I feel like the little home in the picture.  Except I feel more like Humpty Dumpty right after he fell.  I feel confused and disoriented.”  Jack said as he placed his left hand with a pointing finger to his puzzled mouth.  Just like the picture.  “Silly Jack, Humpty wasn’t confused he knew someone would come to help him and if he had some helpon the front side he probably wouldn’t have fallen off the wall in the first place.”  Jill scolded.  They laughed and began to read…… 

#14 Ask Questions and Understand the Answers

This checkpoint is more about follow up and understanding the information you receive than it is about a special laundry list of questions.  Some answers are easy, who owns the home now?  How old is the home?  How many bedrooms?  But what about the vacant land behind the home?  What about the creek around the corner?  What about the schools?  How long will my commute be?  What about that drain in the front of the home?  What about that green box in the back yard?  Can we build a pool?  Can we raise a pig?  Ok so there are a couple of questions for you to chew on.  Your REALTOR can help you find the answers to almost any question that you can come up with on a piece of real estate.  Make it a point to address your concerns before you put an offer on a home.

When your looking for your answers don’t leave it up to neighborhood gossip.  Your future neighbors may feel threatened by you so they might not give you the real scoop.  Everything on the internet is not true; so any answers you find, you’ll want to discuss with your REALTOR.  Your REALTOR may have already heard the rumors in the subdivision and know where to get the REAL answers.

If you have a question about your future home…..ask it early and get an answer.  This will be YOUR HOME so take the time for due diligence.  It is your job to ask the questions and your job to understand what those answers mean………………

DON’T WAIT TIL THE LAST MINUTE TO ASK A QUESITON.  Again ask your question(s) early and understand the answers before you move on to the next item on your list.

Well you already know how the story ends.  They followed the checklist and found their happily ever after.  Jack will no longer tumble down the hill.  He and Jill are Kind and Queens of the Hill.  That’s the end so here’s:  

THE HOME BUYER CHECKLIST YOU’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR

1)  Get Prequalified

2)  Choose a REALTOR

3)  Learn What Costs Are Involved

4)  Search and Search Some More

5)  Keeping an Open Mind

6)   A Home That Suits Your Needs?

7)  Where Do You Want to Live?

8)  Negotiate to Buy a Home

9)  Consider a Home Protection Plan

10) Have a Home Inspection

11) Insurance For Home

12) The Appraisal

13) HUD, Funding, & Cookies OH MY!

14) Ask More Questions & Follow Up

Be on the look out for more adventures of Jack and Jill as they take on their new role as home owners.  If you would like Jack and Jill to share a specific adventure I would love to hear from you.  (email me at Scott@Scott Culberson.com)  I hope that you enjoyed our series.  Please share it with your family and friend or two and maybe YOU can help them too……

Live Life to the Fullest,

S. C.
