Can I Become a Homebuyer if I Have Bad Credit?

You may be a good candidate for a credit restoration program. Once you’ve improved your credit scores above the qualifying standards and have the eligibility income required, you can get an approval from the lender. If you need help with your down payment, there are sometimes local housing grants that are available on homes being sold in certain regions. You should consult with a credit repair specialist and a mortgage lender for an analysis of your current income and liabilities, as well as guidance on your next steps. Lenders can be found on Rocket Mortgage. Lexington Law specializes in credit repair. If you would like to speak to one of our preferred partners, we can arrange an introduction. Stay persistent in your pursuit of homeownership, your future self will thank you.

Coming Soon: A Different Kind of “Board” Meeting – Viewers Are Transported “Behind-the-Scenes” To Have a Look Inside of Coleman Tanner’s Real Estate Team Meetings.

Winedown Wednesdays – Airing on YouTube at 6pm.

So, you’ve been working for the past three days, grinding it out, and are craving for the weekend to come sooner. Why not wind down with us, have a glass of wine (or two), and join our little weekly soiree! We’d love to have you with us (virtually). Join us Wednesdays for happy hour as we dive into a business meeting over wine and a charcuterie board as we talk about our real estate agency activities of the week and brainstorm ways to serve our clients better.

I was working on a new business that I launched in January, 2020 – Coleman Tanner Realty – and then the pandemic hit us. At first, I was frozen in fear. I had already launched the business on a shoestring budget, and now I had no idea how to develop business when I was “stuck at home.”

It has been a real challenge given the crisis we all were (and still are) in. After postponing for several months, I decided to take action to lay a foundation, build the business on it, and gain momentum along the way. I figured that since others were doing well online, that’s where I needed to turn my attention – and here’s one of the cornerstones: a “behind-the-scenes” look at what we are (and will be) doing in our business.

I know that showcasing our business strategies online is like tipping your hand in poker, but I don’t mind others using our ideas in their business because I have an “abundance mentality” – there’s enough for everyone. I hope you enjoy the show and I welcome your feedback. Thanks for watching.

Cheers!

John

What Roofing Materials Should I Buy?

Shingle, Clay Tile, or Metal?

1. Clay tile. AKA “Spanish tile” (my favorite) this material is considered the most attractive, but also more expensive. This roof will have a 50 to 100 year life expectancy, but is costly to repair.

Benefit: good wind resistance.

Metal Roof

2. Steel Panels. This roofing material is less expensive than clay tile, but not as attractive.

Benefit: lower cost & good wind resistance.

Composition Shingle

3. Composition Shingle. There are many grades of shingle quality to choose from, they are the most affordable material, and they have a 20 to 50 year life expectancy. However, they are the least wind resistant.

Benefit: low-cost.

Solar Panels = Lower Electric Bills

Roofing Options: Solar Panels. When you are thinking about your roofing installation, you may want to consider adding solar panels. They may cut your electric bill, but you should consider the installation costs, as well as future repair and replacement costs. Also, they may be difficult to remove when repairing your roof and they are not attractive.

Perhaps when the technology expands to the point where the panels are embedded into the roofing materials, it will become a “must have.” For now, you may need to crunch the numbers closely before placing an order.

In closing, when designing your new home, you may be restricted by the developer’s rules on what roofing material you can use. Also, take into consideration your environment and how well your preference will blend in. Lastly, remember the old adage that you get what you pay for.

Happy Homebuilding!
