Real Estate and You w/ Brad Weisman

Casual conversations about everything having to do w/ Real Estate... and YOU! It's a fun laid back format, that explores all the various pieces of the Real Estate World. Selling homes since 1992, gives me many markets and trends to look back on and helps me ask the right questions (most of the time), in order to get the most out of my knowledgeable guests. Give it a listen and tell me what you think. :) (intro music - Jeff Miller)

Behind Closed Doors - Episode 1 (pilot)
The idea for this series came from Brandon Lesagonicz (realtor/friend from Keller Williams).  He said what if we told stories about our business that people don't normally hear?  What if we went behind the scenes to expose the Sad, the Bad and the Funny of our business?   So that's what we decided to do!! This first episode is us sharing some REAL stories about things that happened to us while helping our clients navigate the home buying/selling process.   We love what we do, but there's definitely crazy things we See, Hear and Unfortunately sometimes SMELL. :) Join us every episode as we bring on other Realtors to tell their stories and have fun along the way!   Join us on Real Estate and YOU - Behind Closed Doors!

BEYOND the HOME PURCHASE (life after settlement)
There's so much to think about beyond the home purchase, so I brought Justin Perella in to go over a few important topics to think about.   When you change your financial positions in life (buying a home for first time or upgrading to higher value home), you need to think about things we don't typically like to think about.  What if something happens to you or your spouse?  If the bread winner is no longer around (god forbid), will the remaining spouse be able to keep up with the expenses?  Check your LIFE insurance to be sure there's enough!! Everyone is talking about the RATES going up... is it really as bad as you think?  Look at the numbers, than look at the investment you are making.  Even at 6.25% YOU should purchase the home you LOVE and in the first year you'll still be ahead!!  Listen to the show to find out why!  Check out the show in the following places:InstagamFacebookTiktok

Justin Perella from Contour Mortgage jumps back in the REAY studio to chat about all the other positives surrounding the Rate Hike.  BUY the home you LOVE NOW and GET the RATE you want Later!  GREAT SHOW!!There's so much more about buying a home than the RATE... the RATE is temporary because you can refinance out of it when rates drop.  If you don't buy the home you LOVE because of the RATE, it most likely won't be there when the rates drop.  BUY NOW... get the Better RATE Later! Keller Williams Platinum Realty Brad Weisman has been a Realtor since 1992 and proudly sponsors this podcast!Contour Mortgage - Justin Perella Justin is a local mortgage representative that excels in getting to settlement on time!
