Parents Need a Place for Their College-Bound Kids January 16th, 2017 | Posted in General Real Estate, Other Interests, Real Estate

It’s that time of year when graduating seniors and parents are seeing those college acceptance letters coming in the mail!  It’s an exciting time, full of decisions from A-Z.

This is a great letter to share in your social media (slightly reworked for that format, of course).  On social media, it’s easy for friends to forward to other friends and it would be another easy one to utilize for inexpensive advertising, too.

RE:     (college/university) Bound?  Get a Little Condo!

Congratulations on choosing (college/university) as your child’s institution of higher learning. Knowing many clients from (college/university), I can assure you that you have made a superior choice.

I am writing because I can help you provide an even more solid foundation for your child’s higher education.

As you probably know, the cost of on-campus or off-campus housing has soared these last few years, adding an even greater burden to educational costs.  In most cases, you can purchase one or two bedroom condominiums for your child and pay less than what a year’s dormitory, fraternity, or sorority fees require.  Of the high-quality and secure condominiums I can show you, most can be purchased with little money down.

Buying instead of renting is just the first of several benefits.  Here are five more:

  1. The payment will likely be the same as or less than dorm or fraternity/ sorority rent.
  2. The tax benefits of owning a condominium will further decrease the cost of your child’s housing.
  3. If you acquire a two-bedroom condo or larger, you can rent a room to a study buddy, who will not only help your child enjoy his or her experience at (college/university) but also help further defer the costs to you.
  4. Our (city) market has been stable for a long period of time, and condominiums can be purchased at some of the lowest levels in years. There is a very good chance that this condominium can be sold after graduation for a very serious profit, allowing you to recover some of the costs associated with your child going to college.
  5. Perhaps the most important aspect: Your child will gain an appreciation of what it is to own, manage, and maintain a piece of real estate.

 

You can preview a number of the condominiums, townhomes, and small homes that I have set aside for you by visiting my website at www.waltersanford.com/ collegecondo. With the click of a button, the listings can be daily sent to you via email, fax, or mail.

At your convenience, give me a call on my private line at 815.929.9258 for a free, no-obligation consultation to find out what opportunities may be available.  I consider available condominiums and small houses on a family-by-family basis, and I will spend whatever time is necessary to make you feel comfortable with the area and the property.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

Walter Sanford

P.S.    By the way, is your child taking any business real estate courses?  Tell him/her to look out for me.  I serve as a guest speaker to the university’s business faculty!

Renters January 13th, 2017 | Posted in General Real Estate, Other Interests, Real Estate

Some people rent because they don’t want some of the challenges that can come with home ownership; some people rent because they think they can’t afford to purchase a home.  With this letter, we’re going after that second group by offering them solutions toward owning a home.

This letter would be perfect to utilize in a slightly different way as a demographically-specific ad on Facebook.  You can target specific neighborhoods and even tag individuals.

This is a low-cost, potentially high-yield lead generation letter.

I have found homes for tenants in this neighborhood, and I wanted to show you what they learned when they graduated from my “Buyers’ Assistance Program.” There are several reasons that home ownership can offer advantages compared to renting:

  1. You accumulate wealth by paying down debt in the form of mortgage payments, whereas rent pays down a landlord’s mortgage.
  2. Your credit rating improves when you own a home.
  3. Over time, your net worth increases, allowing you to establish a preferred status with your bank and giving you the opportunity to make other major plans, like owning your own business.
  4. If you become unemployed, the landlord still expects the rent payment; by contrast, most mortgage lenders will work with you and perhaps add the missed payments to your mortgage.
  5. Owning your home allows you to choose how to live.
  6. If you decide not to live in your home, you can choose to sell and move elsewhere, and over time you will have accumulated equity to take with you – tax free!
  7. If you require short-term loans, lines of credit, or other revolving credit arrangements, home ownership will provide greater opportunities to obtain those credit arrangements.
  8. The wealth you accumulate by owning your home is tax free, since equity in your principal residence is not a taxable gain.
  9. There is a program available for homeowners only, which provides job loss insurance to cover the mortgage payments while you look for work and get back on your feet.
  10. A mortgage payment can be fixed for up to 30 years.
  11. You can control $100,000 of an asset for less than 10% of that amount in cash.
  12. Pride of Ownership: you will be amazed how the small repairs that used to bug you in your rental are now a joy when you own your own home.
  13. Sweat Equity: what investments let you add value by painting, landscaping, cleaning, and remodeling a kitchen?
  14. Retirement Plan: every mortgage payment and every percent of inflation adds to your retirement.
  15. You now have an estate to pass on to your loved ones.
  16. You become a respected member of the community.

 

If you would like even more reasons why a purchase could help you, please do not hesitate to call or email for a personal appointment.

Go to www.waltersanford .com/gottabuy for a complete, chronological, step-by-step plan to achieve the benefits we talked about in this letter.  We have done it for many others just like you, living where you live now.

Sincerely,

Walter Sanford

Are You Doing All You Can Do? January 10th, 2017 | Posted in General Real Estate, Other Interests, Real Estate

My goal in real estate was to leverage my time so that I was getting the maximum amount of income out of every exertion of energy. I never liked showing property much, but I really wanted the listing. In fact, I did whatever was ethical to become the most recognized REALTOR® in my area.

This system is a little aggressive, not for the faint of heart. I never considered it solicitation of a seller, just feedback; however, the results were many sellers ended up knowing me and paying more attention to my expired solicitation.

I risk showing you this in that you may think all of my ideas are “grey area” but not so! I have thousands of systems in my training materials that will make you a fortune, but I have to tell you — I just loved that call from the REALTOR® who had more time on their hands than business and who would complain that I should have emailed him/her my feedback on their listing.

Most times, I was giving better feedback than the listing agent. The top agents loved it, so that is why I have so many different systems. I had to keep inventing new ones, because the competition kept stealing my ideas.

Just leave this card at the property you have shown. Make sure all of your information and picture are on the card. Mine had me next to my Rolls Royce on the back.
