Best Time To Sell It: Before You Buy It

New Site For Green Earth Equities

When's the best time to sell your Green Renovation?    ASAP of course.    I was surprised when i counted them up,  We've sold 6 of our first 12 Green Renovations before they were finished.   (The project on Scott Avenue that we've been talking about & showing on the Tuesday Webinars has been sold during the whole process.)    These pre-sales have been a real blessing ... But now we're moving to the next level ... Selling them before we even buy them. We are prototyping the process right now and of course we share everything we learn right here...Continue Reading!

Wholesalers Can Save You A Lot Of Time!

New Site For Green Earth Equities

We are in escrow to purchase our first property from a "Wholesaler."    I didn't see it coming, but I'm glad I got a call a couple of weeks ago from Sam Okenyi & his partner, Chris Williams.    They were familiar with our Green Renovation and Classy Remodeling work from our job sign and our CraigsList ads and knew that we would be the most likely buyer on their list if they could just get us to take a look at it. (See video of my interview with Sam and Chris) They had found a real mess of...Continue Reading!

Have you ever "day dreamed" or fantasized, "What if life circumstances changed & you re-located across the country and got to choose a new place to live?" I know that if you're reading this blog, you're at least somewhat of a Home Performance Geek like me. And I know that only a few of us in this industry actually live in our "Home Performance Dream Home"…. So a little day dreaming and "What If?" thinking is in order for most of us. Pretty, You Bet!

Influence The Appraisal With Your Open House Brochure?

New Site For Green Earth Equities

Today we had an Open House at a newly renovated home.  Several people commented about the brochure that we provided, so I decided to post it.   If you click the images they will expand to full size. It's our standard 4 page brochure which is more extensive than the standard one page photocopy provided by most realtors. Each page has a purpose  and there is a whole series of slides in PlanetSavers University explaining why we feel it's worth the extra effort.  The first page mentions my Realtor, but just barely.   Pictures are obviously important but it also includes...Continue Reading!

“McMansion” Era Coming To An End?

New Site For Green Earth Equities

"McMansion" Era Coming To An End?       So wondered a recent Wall Street Journal article.  Read it Here. You can recall the history of homebuilding by taking a driving tour in your city.   What you'll notice is that there has always been a small percentage (5-10) of the "Grand Old Homes"  Mansions or Near Mansions, and then the rest of the housing stock.   In my town of Fresno, CA the Grand Old Homes were on Huntington and Van Ness Boulevard in the early 1900s.   Two Stories with 4ooo square feet or more was the order of...Continue Reading!

Next “Wave” of Foreclosures: Fact or Fiction? (Dont Hold Your Breath)

New Site For Green Earth Equities

We've all been told that there's another "Wave" of foreclosures coming and I've even done some of my own planning based on that prediction.   Almost all of the people I've heard the next "wave theory" from were just repeating what they had heard from someone else.  The more thoughtful of these pointed to the continuing rise in Notices Of Default but we all scratched our heads because the expected actual foreclosures didn't show up on the REO market.    What happened?   The foreclosures seemed to get lost on their way to the MLS... I had nothing objective to base...Continue Reading!

Found: New Ally For Vets Concerns: Craig of CraigsList

New Site For Green Earth Equities

It's great when you meet people of kindred spirit in places you weren't expecting.  I attended the Inman Connect Conference in San Francisco last week expecting to meet a lot of geeks, programers, and architects of Web 2.0. and the Social Media explosion.   Which I did. But perhaps my most valuable contact was Craig Newmark, founder of CraigsList. I was happy to learn of his concern for Veterans.   His reach of course, is greater than this humble blog, but his heart and approach is the same as here at GreenEarthEquities -- to give our gifts away for free for...Continue Reading!
