Taking Initiative

Initiative

It's cliche to say that every journey begins with a single step, yet it's true. Leaders don't wait for everything to be perfect before they move forward. They don't wait for all the problems or obstacles to disappear. They don't wait until their fear subsides. Leaders take initiative.

Leaders know the secret of momentum: once you take the first step and start moving forward, everything becomes clearer and easier. If momentum gets strong enough, problems begin to take care of themselves and new opportunities arise. But the benefits of momentum only come into play once a leader takes initiative.

As leaders, why are we sometimes timid or tentative when we should be taking action? In my experience and observation, there are six root causes of our procrastination.

There have been a lot of questions about short sales, foreclosures, REO properties, pre-foreclosures, Repos and other such distressed sales in our Idaho Real Estate market.  In Idaho, we have our share.

While a short sale may be the last resort for many homeowners facing foreclosure, it also represents a great opportunity for potential home buyers and Idaho real estate investors. This article is designed to help answer a few basic questions about the substantial risk and reward involved in this extremely complex and often drawn out process for both buyers and sellers.  For more information on the short sale process, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Tax Benefits From Owning a Home

Tax Benefits of Owning a Home


Before a home owner curses the troubled housing market, he or she should take solace in the U.S. tax code, which makes buying a home a good deal for almost everyone.

Interest on home equity loans is also deductible whether the borrower uses the money to remodel the kitchen or to take a vacation to Disney World.
