5 Under-Appreciated Things About Real Estate Agents 
Vist Ryan Stewman - The HARD CORE CLOSER who originally posted this and I just had to share it!!  https://www.facebook.com/ryan.stewman 

I hear quite a few people complain about real estate agents. From loan officers to title companies and beyond. What most people don't understand, is what it is actually like to be an Agent. Did you even know that real estate agents are one of the most sold to niches in the USA? There are more people trying to get business and money from agents than almost anyone. 

Agents are grossly under-appreciated. You probably have no idea how much stress an agent has to subdue. In today's market of limited inventory and multiple offers, agents are having to work their asses off just to get a house secured for their clients. Realtors work their tail off to make stuff happen for their clients. Now are they all per ...

Top Keller Williams Team Joins RE/MAX

Name recognition, international presence and the potential for more income were too good for the KARE Team to ignore
By Katharine Davis


Being the No. 2 team at their Keller Williams office meant the KARE Team was successful. It also meant the team devoted a lot of time to helping other agents in their office, which then meant less time spent on their own business. The KARE Team wanted more – more of a challenge, more income and more name recognition.
They’ve found it all at RE/MAX Advance Realty in South Miami, Fla. With Team Leader David Kurz at the helm, the three-person team joined RE/MAX in December – and already has big plans for 2014.
“My goal is to double our business,” says Kurz, a Marine Corps veteran. “I have a very clear, direct vision of what I want, and I won’t allow anything to stop me.”
Here, Kurz explain ...

FHA to lower loan limits on Single-Family Homes in 2014

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is bringing down loan limits on single-family mortgages next year.  We knew this could and would happen as the market moved further into recovery.  Yet another reason to sell your house before the end of the year.  Now it will be harder for home-buyers to purchase a home in the USA because they will need to have MORE money on hand for higher priced homes.  Thats a huge impact on Miami since our home prices have continued to soar!  
According to Mortgagee Letter 13-43, FHA’s revised ceiling for single-family loan limits will come down to $625,000 from $729,750. The change marks the first full implementation of loan-limit calculations under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008; the lower limits were originally scheduled to be put into place at the start of 2009, but Congress delayed any action “due to continuing strains in credit markets” at the time, HUD said.
