When it hit's the fan...

will you be ready? Most people see bad things coming from a distance. Many others are given no warning to a major disaster, issue, or problem when it becomes reality. What are we to do in order to prepare then? I find it interesting how few people keep an emergency fund for stormy weather. The best thing that you can do to prepare yourself in case of a terrible situation is to have at least six month's worth of reserve cash available for when things go south. I encourage everyone to calculate what it would cost to live for six months and determine now to start setting aside money until that amount is reached.

I am about to release my booklet on foreclosure, best of all it will be free online!

More to come,

Talking real estate all the time...

Apparently I have been so involved in real estate lately that I am talking about deals in my sleep. This is both good and bad news to me, I love talking real estate, but everyone needs sleep. Wouldn't that be cool if you could do something productive in your sleep though?

I have been thinking about our local and national real estate markets and the opportunities that are out there right now. I know many people that are getting rich because of the various real estate deals that they are doing to make things work for them.

What are you doing to make use of the opportunity near you? I am working on short sales and on buying rental property at this time. Vegas, Kansas City, and Salt Lake are the three markets I am buying and helping people invest in.

Let me know where you are and what you are doing!

Home Run Grant #2 in Utah...

For those of you who are not aware, the second home run grant is available for anyone wanting to build or buy a home that has never been lived in. The amount is $4000 and it goes towards your down payment of closings costs of the home. The other good news is it is not just for first time home buyers this time around! If you have any questions, more information can be given by calling Geoff at 801-232-9500 or emailing

If you act fast you could get as much as 20000 dollars towards the purchase of a new home when combined with the 8000 tax credit!

Good Luck and Happy Real Estate Hunting!

Surviving Labor Day and Foreclosure...

I am putting the final touches on my booklet on foreclosure. I am hoping to have it available to send out to anyone that wants it. I will be putting it on a download landing page and will post that here as soon as I have it. If you have any questions about foreclosure in the mean time, please email me at

Thanks and look for a more detailed post about the booklet later this week.

Celebrating Labor Day...

I feel fortunate to be busy helping people achieve their real estate goals, but I had not considered how and why Labor day came into being in the United States. Labor day was established in the late 1800's as a holiday to commemorate the workers killed during Union strikes in New England. It has since become the celebratory end of Summer and a day of rest for those who labor diligently at their various positions. It was sad to hear today that the jobless rate has climbed to it's highest since 1983, making Labor day a bit more painful to those without gainful employment.

The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities to be had in America, even in these troubled times. There has not been a better era for someone to grow their own business, whether it be in real estate or any field at all. Their are plenty of opportunities out there for someone to grab hold and get out of the sticky situation they may be in at this time. I hope that all of you have a great Labor day weekend and look forward to helping you in your endeavors any way that I can!
