"People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it!"

~ Anonymous


WHICH ONE ARE YOU?

Some of the best minds suggest that when you have a dream, you should keep it to yourself. You should set about quietly achieving your dream, but without sharing it with others. Their reasoning is that when you share your lofty goal, you open yourself up to the ridicule and criticism of those who say, "It cannot be done." This is distracting, and can negate your efforts.

Avoid the crowd who says, "It cannot be done." Instead, spend time alone giving your dream a form. Imagine what it will feel like when your dream has been achieved. Picture it happening. Decide what actions you must take to set your dream in motion. Finally, "just do it!"

You'll find that you don't need the adulation of others when your dream becomes reality. Just knowing that you caused it will be enough. True - others will wonder how you accomplish so much in life, while they seem to struggle for the slightest movement forward. So be it.

As the Disney theme song says, "When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are. Everything your heart desires will come to you!"

6 ways to better your credit

by Allison Simson

Question: Allison:  We keep hearing everywhere that interest rates are "historically low," but no one I know seems to be able to qualify to get the 4.4 percent we keep hearing and reading about. How do you qualify to get the lowest rates? What do you advise a financially fit person to do to increase her credit score or make herself a more attractive buyer?

Answer: Good question….I’ve experienced this first hand do to a small bookkeeping error (mine) that led to my mortgage not being paid for a month – just 30 days – and my credit score took a nose dive!  Let’s turn to tips for increasing your credit score, even if you're already pretty fiscally fit (from Inman News).

I've found that people asking about how to qualify for the best interest rates is similar to people asking me how to lose weight: I tell them the truth, then their eyes glaze over when I give them the straight dope, sans magic bullets.

No one wants to hear: eat vegetables, cut the sugar, and exercise; similarly, they don't want to hear: pay your bills on time, every time. But I've been asked this question a lot recently, so here goes, anyway!

1. Pull your reports online -- get them for free, no strings attached, at the government-authorized website AnnualCreditReport.com. This doesn't get you your actual FICO scores, but it does get you the content of your report.

Look for errors that could be depressing your score, like accounts that don't belong to you, balances that are actually lower than reported, old debts that are paid off that should have been removed entirely (seven years for credit cards, 10 years for bankruptcies).

2. Consider reopening accounts you thought were open but have been closed because you haven't used them in so long -- it will help boost your utilization ratio, one element of your credit score that is dependent on how much available credit you have.

3. Pay down some debt. This both decreases your debt-to-income ratio (36 percent is the goal, including the proposed mortgage payment) and increases your credit score, if you do it right (see the next tip).

4. Don't close any accounts. Instead, spread your debt out. The ideal utilization ratio is about 20-30 percent of your available credit overall, and on any given account. Closing accounts reduces the amount of credit that is available to you, so it makes it look like you're closer to being maxed out.

So if you have one card that's near its max and several others that have zero balances and you're trying boost your score a bit, quickly, consider balance transfers to spread our your debt more evenly, aiming for 20-30 percent of the available credit on each card.

5. Use your credit regularly -- and pay it on time, every time. FICO scores are not simply about making sure you have no debt. They are meant to be a measure that shows that you have a history of responsibly using and managing and repaying your debt.

6. Finally, check in with your mortgage broker. Have the broker pull your report and score, as the report she pulls is the one she'll have to go by in the final analysis. If you're really close to a score level that would empower you to qualify for a lower rate, the mortgage broker can actually run a credit diagnostic on your score and generate some recommendations for which actions you could take to raise your score by the needed few points.

Also, many mortgage brokers can do what's called a "Rapid Rescore" -- once you've paid that bill off, they can actually submit a request directly to the credit bureaus to update that information and your score in just a few days.

None of these tips will get someone with a 500 credit score to a 700 (other than a massive debt reduction program). But if you're trying to get a little boost to get you over a credit score hump, these can be potent and save you beaucoup bucks in interest.

Good luck!

5 tips for assessing a lowball offer

by Allison Simson

Know when to counter, when to ignore

Question:  Allison, we have our home in Keystone on the market and we have received an extremely low offer.  We countered and the Buyer moved on to another home.  What should we have done with a “low ball” hoffer?

Answer:  You’re not alone!  Many offers are coming in much lower than many sellers are prepared for.  Your house is for sale for $350,000, and you're confident it's well-priced. You get an offer, but it's for $300,000, and you're stunned and disappointed by how low it is.

If your first instinct is to feel insulted and to hurl an epithet -- don't, said Jeffrey Stanton, a real estate instructor based in Modesto, Calif., and Staten Island, N.Y. Stanton's company, Your Professional Development, teaches courses in negotiation techniques.

That seller might still end up with an acceptable sale price, Stanton said: The key is being ready.

Five things for home sellers to know about lowball offers:

1. It's critical in this market for sellers to be prepared for the possibility of an unacceptably low offer, Stanton said.

This is the job of the seller's agent -- managing expectations and emotions -- and too often this particular educational task is overlooked, with uncomfortable, potentially time-wasting results for all, he said.

"Most agents wait for an offer and say, 'Oh, shucks, now I'm going to have to present this to my seller,' " he said.

Not only should the agents tell the homeowners to be prepared for a low offer, they need to come to agreement on just what constitutes "lowball."

"Each market is going to be totally different. In one, it may be 5 to 10 percent below list. In a different market, it may be 30 percent below list," Stanton said. "That's a unique conversation that has to happen between agent and seller." 

Currently, in Summit County, the average sales list to sales price ratio is 93.5%.

2. Lowball offers may have any number of motivations, and sellers shouldn't automatically presume they stem from somebody's desire to be insulting.

"A lot of times, a lowball may be all the buyers can afford," he said. "It could be an investor or a buyer looking to steal the property, or a buyer who really likes your property and is just taking a shot at it, never knowing if you're going to say yes or no.

"Just don't take it as them disrespecting you."

3. If the initial offer seems out of the question, should the seller just ignore it or make a counter?

Stanton said that some negotiators suggest making no written response at all, which tells the would-be buyer that the offer isn't even being considered, in order to get across the point that the offer must increase considerably. The thinking is that the most powerful thing an individual can say is, "If it's that low, I'm not selling," Stanton said.

But he suggests that buyers in such cases make a counteroffer.

"You want to keep the negotiation lines open, so come back with something," he said. "If the house is listed for $350,000 and the offer is $300,000, the seller may want to counteroffer at $345,000, just to see what the buyer is going to say."

4. In such a case, the next move will be revealing, Stanton said.

"One of the signs in negotiations is how much of a move they make," he said. "The smaller the move, the closer that person is to his goal."

Take the aforementioned counteroffer of $345,000, he said. If the buyer responds to that one with $305,000, usually it can be interpreted as the buyer not having much price flexibility.

But if that (buyer) response is $320,000, that's a big move, Stanton said. And if the countering continues but the buyer goes up only to $322,000, he's probably near his limit, he explained.

I tell the sellers I work with to always counter any offer they get.  Never let the ball die on your side of the court is a good real estate adage!
