08-18-23 New Builds: The Good and the Ugly

Most times, when you hear the word "leverage" when discussing real estate, it's considered an excellent thing. When we can borrow and leverage someone else's money to make money, that puts us in a great spot. The beauty of leverage is that it can give you exponential increase very quickly. Unfortunately, leverage can also work the other way around, and you'll experience exponential loss. When could this happen to you? In this episode of LIFE's Inside Track with the Dekker Team, we'll explore the pros, cons, and risks of purchasing a new build with closing more than 90 days into the future.

08-11-23 Your House Wants You to Move!

Is it more challenging to get up from a chair or the ground? Do you feel more tired than usual? Are the bags of groceries feeling heavier? There may be a simple solution! Brushing your teeth while doing five heel raises. Going down the stairs, followed by five pushups. Believe it or not, you can get physically stronger and develop better cardiovascular health within the comfort of your daily routine. Don’t have an hour block of time to dedicate to a workout? No problem! In this episode of LIFE’s Inside Track, we’ll join Cheryl Gandier from Evolution Fitness and Wellness Solutions to contemplate how we don’t need a gym membership or a formal workout routine to become physically fit.

08-04-23 Real Estate: Past to Future

When I consider standard practices 35 years ago when I entered the real estate industry versus today's best practices, it's pretty mind-blowing. At that time, we agents assessed properties on behalf of our clients. Based on one tiny black-and-white thumbnail exterior image and a brief description, in a book that looked much like the yellow pages and was to remain in our possession exclusively. Now, people can access 30 high-resolution photos, full online home tours, and google earth imaging that is current and accessible to the minute. This is just one of the little changes in the industry. In this episode of LIFE's Inside Track, we'll consider the relevant information you, as a buyer or seller, need to know regarding best practices of the past, present, and anticipated game-changing updates in the next year.

07-28-23 Letting Go, Moving Forward

Amy was furious with her husband, Jack. He had pushed them to sell their sole rental property because he was tired of the maintenance work. Amy knew the spring market was only a few months away and wanted to wait a little longer. The winter had been frigid and snowy; Jack was sick of all the driveway shoveling, and one tenant went away for the weekend and froze a pipe! He insisted they sell while Amy begged him to wait until he calmed down and the recent issues no longer clouded his perspective. After the sale, a few months later, prices soared and the couple had the sickening realization that had they waited, they could have sold their property for $150,000 more. "That is two years of my salary, Jack!" Amy wailed. Could you forgive Jack in this situation? Join us in this segment of LIFE's Inside Track with the Dekker Team as we explore the depths of forgiveness and its impact on your emotional and financial future. By embracing forgiveness, you can pave the way for a more fulfilling and prosperous future.

Maybe you’re reading this and wondering if this is the path you or your loved ones are headed. In this episode of LIFE’s Inside Track with the Dekker Team, we’ll contemplate how this doesn’t need to be your family’s story.
