Some Real Estate Agent still Believe “Buyers are Liars ” # 70

Fake Information That Hurt Buyers and Agents Relationships

Hello Everyone , Today Topic is about a Saying I have hear through out my Real Estate Career All 14 Years . I always want to talk this because this always bug me . At a time in my life this saying came from Real Estate Agent who I respect until they said this saying . I still love them so If your reading this I still love you all but I just put in the top sale person ranking

I just think this Say “Buyers are Liars” Really can hurt your Business . I never understood How the Real Estate agent saying this didn’t see How it hurting their Business . They( agents ) themselves are Buyers . Maybe not a House every day but they purchase needs and wants weekly . How You see a Buyer is How you see yourself in the truth Form . Don’t believe look at yourself in you always saying everything is so expensive I bet you think everything you see is expensive in your mind . Each day you should ask If you see people as liars . How do you think people see you ?

I have seen this Real Estate agent who believe Buyers are Liars . Get what they believe Buyers play games with them . I also seen them play games with Buyers . Becomes both parties Agent and Buyer doesn’t trust each other . Each have grown to mistrust.

I have also seen Famous Training Coach say we not Real estate Business for People we are in for Money . I not saying I against money but I learn one think from Sales . The More people you can help get what they want the more you get what you want quote from Zig Ziglar . Which is a true Real great Sales Trainer . If you in Sales you should get everything this man ever wrote or audio Tapes .

So this Statement about Buyers are Liars . Buyer should be asking Agents what Feel about working with Buyers . Do they enjoy Servicing people ? In Some cases there are Salespeople who care more about the Sell then building relationship with Clients . I will say one think the more you can build relationship the more you end up selling more Houses . So this Agent are only looking at the short term . They truly losing and losing client trust.

If you looking for great Buyer agent who really work for you . Let me know our Team has the Best Real Estate agents in Westchester /Putnam County .

If you live in Westchester : You must eat at Johny’s Pizzeria : #68

So you maybe asking Yourself Why is Nuno Writing about a Pizzeria place . Why not make a list of the best pizzeria in Westchester NY you may ask . I going let you know I love Pizza when I mean I love pizza I eaten in almost every pizzeria from Putnam County To Southen part Westchester Country .

There is a lot great pizzeria in Westchester . I will late one day make a list of all the great pizzeria’s in Blog Post . Today I going to talk about the 1# Hands Down the Best Pizzeria in Westchester .

Most of All Why I am Writing about Johnny is because I lived in Westchester county for 35 years. I only found Johnny in 2010 because my Girlfriend at the time now wife took me there . I was living in Mt Vernon at the time . This was Happy day but also a Sad one . I eat two pies celebrate that I had found Heaven . At the same time I felt great sorrow I don’t know about Johnny’s earlier in life . I have Family that lived up the block , I living in Mt Vernon and had worked up the block I know sad . You will understand once you eat the pizza my sorrow . I writing this because I don’t want anyone else missing out .So I write this article to say at least someone in Westchester County told you about Johnny’s .

Rules To Johnnys

They Close on Sunday & Mondays

They only Take Cash . Don’t Bring plastic

They only Sell pies No Slices .

Parking Sucks so don’t go with anyone who complains a lot . Leave them at home .

This a great Family place if you love the Yankees Welcome Home

They also Sell other good Foods But if you leave there with out trying the Pizza . You truly missing out Pizza Heaven . I also say one thing more if you complain you have wait for Pizza Heaven you also suck as person in my Book .

This is a family owned and run Restaurant.

Here is one their many great Reviews :

Johnny’s serves a New York style Neoplitan pizza in the vein of Lombardi’s, Patsy’s and Pepe’s; except that it stands apart as unique in taste & construction. The pie is dressed with what appears to the uneducated as to much sauce and not enough cheese on a crust so thin that is should fall apart; but nothing could be farther from the truth. The pizza at Johnny’s is as exemplary and unique in taste as it is in construction.

It surprises me how Johnny’s has not been written up in the NY Times and heralded on the Food Network, which Johnny’s deserves. However, from a very self centered standpoint I am glad it has not been because I might not be able to get a table and therefore truly deprived of greatness.

Johnny’s may very well be the most unique pizza made in the U.S. and it should be held among the ranks of the best in America.

History about Johnny Est 1942 Website http://www.johnnys1942.com/

JOE [1939-2016]Our Dad, Joseph, was born to March 25, 1939 to Joseph and Concetta Piscopo. He is the last to be born out of 16 children. He was raised with his oldest brothers, Johnny, Frankie and Sonny along with his sisters Anna and Maria. One brother Anthony died before he was born. He was raised in Mount Vernon.New York and attended Edison High School. On July 4, 1942 our grandfather Joseph opened up Johnny’s Pizzeria on East 3rd Street in Mount Vernon for his oldest son Johnny. They served thin crust pizza and other Italian dishes. Our grandmother Concetta worked in the kitchen making her delicious sauce and meatballs while Grandpa, Uncle Johnny, Uncle Sonny and Uncle Frank worked up front making the pizza’s. Our Aunt Anna and Aunt Marie would also help out at the pizzeria. As our father got older, and his responsibilities changed, he helped in the family business. He would say it wasn’t easy, cause, if you wanted to go out and play with your friends, you would have to work for it – he had to chop the wood for the coal ovens in the store before being allowed to go out and play. As the years went on and the times changed he continued to work in the family business. He met the love of his life, Maria Colabella, at his sister Annie’s family cookout. They married on May 9, 1970 and celebrated 46 happy years together this past year. They welcomed four loving children into their lives, Joseph (Preziosa), Ricky, Concetta (Raul) and Tina (Michael) making many happy memories. He was the proud Pop-Pop to Brianna, Joey, Christian and Ava. They were the joys of his life. He taught them so much in such a short time. Our dad believed in family values. On Holidays he would visit the deceased member’s first and then visited the living. That’s how he was brought up and how he taught us. He believed in Sunday dinners and in big family barbeques. Holidays were the most important part of family, to him that’s what family was all about, being together! His favorite saying was “enjoy it while you can because once we go, you can’t get it back”. After many years working with his brothers John and Frank, our dad took over the family business. He continued to build the legacy along with his wife Maria and their children, Joseph, Ricky, Concetta and Tina. Also involved working in the business was his daughter in law Prez and son in law Michael and, most recently, his grandchildren Brianna and Joey. Even Christian and Ava would try to get involved. This past July 4th they Celebrated 74 Years in business. Growing up we all learned that nothing was given to us, we had to work for it. Our dad loved life, he loved his family, he loved his game of golf and of course he said it never rained on the golf course. LOL He especially loved his NY Yankees, the New York Giants and his Monday night Wrestling. He loved it when his family gathered upstate at the Ponderosa. He liked to see us all enjoy ourselves from riding on the quads to swimming in the pool. He even used to make fun of my mother when we all used to come over and she. would cook for 30 people and there was only 10 of us. Our dad touched the lives of his nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends. He appreciated when they visited him and all the conversations that they shared. There is so much to say about our dad that words cannot describe. We know our dad is no longer in pain. He doesn’t have to get poked and pinched from dialysis. He doesn’t have to suffer, He is at peace. He is probably having an anchovy pie with Uncle Johnny and drinking wine with his mom, dad and the rest of his family in heaven. Dad, you left us too soon. We said goodbye but it wasn’t supposed to be forever. It won’t be easy to part from you, but we will always have our memories. You taught us family first and we only have each other because when “Mommy and Daddy are gone” memories are all that you can hold onto. You also taught us to stick together, be happy and most importantly Love each other. We miss you Daddy, the Pizzeria won’t be the same without you. May God bless and watch over all of us. We Love you, and will see you someday in Heaven.

So Sometimes as a Homeowner you have seen Signs on main Street saying “We Buy Your House Cash ” . You Have seen Websites That sent up meetings with investors looking in Your Area and you .

What you should know about selling your house to an investor?

  • Selling to an investor saves time and hassle, but it’s not for everyone.
  • Personal situations, like a job relocation, divorce or potential foreclosure, are some common reasons people end up quickly selling a home to an investor.
  • There’s a new type of home investor, called an iBuyer or Buy on Demand.
  • Whether you sell to a traditional investor or an iBuyer, you can expect a quicker close, an as-is sale and an all-cash offer.
  • When selling to a private investor without a listing agent, you need to do your research to protect yourself from scams. There are plenty of companies that buy houses — make sure to use a reputable one.

Why you can lose a lot of Money because you sell to investor ?

This part of the topic I going to share my experience maybe this will help a lot of readers and please pass this information on . In most case I never like investors who go after Homeowners Directly . I going to say most case investor maybe Honest and Straight forward . Most case the Seller losing 10-30% of their Home Value .

They thinking about what repairs the house need to make the most of the House Value .

I have Help my investor in my early career take advantage of unknowing Homeowners with information which I didn’t know they were using to get an unbelievable deal with Owners knowledge . This why I writing this . Please understand Realtors need by their Board of Realtors need to be Honest in Dealing with you . Investor always prey on Homeowners who need money .

  1. Mortgage Commitment Contingency. (Delete paragraph if inapplicable)
    (a) The obligation of Purchaser to purchase under this contract is
    conditioned upon issuance, on or before _____ days after a fully executed copy of this contract is given to Purchaser or Purchaser’s attorney in the manner set forth in paragraph 25 or subparagraph 8(k) (the “Commitment Date”), of a written commitment from an Institutional Lender pursuant to which such Institutional Lender agrees to make a first mortgage loan, other than a VA, FHA or other governmentally insured loan, to Purchaser, at Purchaser’s sole cost and expense, of $______________ for a term of at least __ years (or such lesser sum or shorter term as Purchaser shall be willing to
    accept) at the prevailing fixed or adjustable rate of interest and on other customary
    commitment terms (the “Commitment”). To the extent a Commitment is conditioned on
    the sale of Purchaser’s current home, payment of any outstanding debt, no material
    adverse change in Purchaser’s financial condition or any other customary conditions,
    Purchaser accepts the risk that such conditions may not be met; however, a commitment
    conditioned on the Institutional Lender’s approval of an appraisal shall not be deemed a
    “Commitment” hereunder until an appraisal is approved (and if that does not occur before
    the Commitment Date, Purchaser may cancel under subparagraph 8(e) unless the
    Commitment Date is extended). Purchaser’s obligations hereunder are conditioned only
    on issuance of a Commitment. Once a Commitment is issued, Purchaser is bound under
    this contract even if the lender fails or refuses to fund the loan for any reason.
    (b) Purchaser shall (i) make prompt application to one or, at Purchaser’s
    election, more than one Institutional Lender for such mortgage loan, (ii) furnish accurate
    and complete information regarding Purchaser and members of Purchaser’s family, as
    required, (iii) pay all fees, points and charges required in connection with such
    application and loan, (iv) pursue such application with diligence, and (v) cooperate in
    good faith with such Institutional Lender(s) to obtain a Commitment. Purchaser shall
    accept a Commitment meeting the terms set forth in subparagraph 8(a) and shall comply
    with all requirements of such Commitment (or any other commitment accepted by
    Purchaser). Purchaser shall furnish Seller with a copy of the Commitment promptly after
    receipt thereof.
    (c) (Delete this subparagraph if inapplicable) Prompt submission by
    Purchaser of an application to a mortgage broker registered pursuant to Article 12-D of
    the New York Banking Law (“Mortgage Broker”) shall constitute full compliance with
    the terms and conditions set forth in subparagraph 8(b)(i), provided that such Mortgage
    Broker promptly submits such application to such Institutional Lender(s). Purchaser shall
    cooperate in good faith with such Mortgage Broker to obtain a Commitment from such
    Institutional Lender(s).
    (d) If all Institutional Lenders to whom applications were made deny such
    applications in writing prior to the Commitment Date, Purchaser may cancel this contract
  • 7 –
    by giving Notice thereof to Seller, with a copy of such denials, provided that Purchaser
    has complied with all its obligations under this paragraph 8.
    (e) If no Commitment is issued by the Institutional Lender on or before
    the Commitment Date, then, unless Purchaser has accepted a written commitment from
    an Institutional Lender that does not conform to the terms set forth in subparagraph 8(a),
    Purchaser may cancel this contract by giving Notice to Seller within 5 business days after
    the Commitment Date, provided that such Notice includes the name and address of the
    Institutional Lender(s) to whom application was made and that Purchaser has complied
    with all its obligations under this paragraph 8.
    (f) If this contract is canceled by Purchaser pursuant to subparagraphs
    8(d) or (e), neither party shall thereafter have any further rights against, or obligations or
    liabilities to, the other by reason of this contract, except that the Downpayment shall be
    promptly refunded to Purchaser and except as set forth in paragraph 27.
    (g) If Purchaser fails to give timely Notice of cancellation or if Purchaser
    accepts a written commitment from an Institutional Lender that does not conform to the
    terms set forth in subparagraph 8(a), then Purchaser shall be deemed to have waived
    Purchaser’s right to cancel this contract and to receive a refund of the Downpayment by
    reason of the contingency contained in this paragraph 8.
    (h) If Seller has not received a copy of a commitment from an Institutional
    Lender accepted by Purchaser by the Commitment Date, Seller may cancel this contract
    by giving Notice to Purchaser within 5 business days after the Commitment Date, which
    cancellation shall become effective unless Purchaser delivers a copy of such commitment
    to Seller within 10 business days after the Commitment Date. After such cancellation
    neither party shall have any further rights against, or obligations or liabilities to, the other
    by reason of this contract, except that the Downpayment shall be promptly refunded to
    Purchaser (provided Purchaser has complied with all of its obligations under this
    paragraph 8) and except as set forth in paragraph 27.
    (i) The attorneys for the parties are hereby authorized to give and receive
    on behalf of their clients all Notices and deliveries under this paragraph 8.
    (j) For purposes of this contract, the term “Institutional Lender” shall

    obligated to accept title hereunder or which Purchaser may have waived and other than

    shall have any further rights, obligations or liabilities against or to the other hereunder or
    otherwise, except that: (i) Seller shall promptly refund or cause the Escrowee to refund
    the Downpayment to Purchaser and, unless cancelled as a result of Purchaser’s default or
    pursuant to paragraph 8, to reimburse Purchaser for the net cost of examination of title,
    including any appropriate additional charges related thereto, and the net cost, if actually

Credit Score and what factors it #65

Credit scores
In order to get a mortgage, especially one with a low interest rate, you usually need to have a good credit score. The most common scoring model is the FICO score, issued by Fair Isaac Corporation. Scores range from 300-850 – the higher, the better. Your score is calculated using data from your credit report, which is compiled by three bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. A lender may check your score from all three bureaus or only one. Many lenders require a score of at least 680 to get a mortgage, and those with a score in the mid-700s and above usually get the best interest rates. If your score is lower than 680, you may only qualify for sub-prime loans, which usually have a high interest rate, or find it difficult to get any loan.

The following are the factors used to calculate your credit score:

  • Payment history (35%): If you make a late payment, your score will take a hit. The more recent, frequent, and severe the lateness, the lower your score. Bankruptcies, judgments, and collection accounts have a serious negative impact.
  • Amounts owed (30%): Carrying high balances on revolving debt (like credit cards) and personal loans, especially if the balances are close to the credit limits, will lower your score.
  • Length of credit history (15%): The longer you have had your accounts, the better.
  • New credit (10%): Having recent inquiries and opening new accounts can lower your score. However, all mortgage or auto loan inquiries that occur within a short period of time are considered just one inquiry for scoring purposes, and you accessing your report does not affect your score.
  • Types of credit used (10%): Having a variety of accounts, such as credit cards, retail accounts, and loans, boosts your score.

Reviewing your credit report regularly is a good idea, but it is a particularly important to do so before seeking a mortgage. Even if you always make your payments on time and have a low level of debt, your credit report could contain score-lowering errors. Check your report at least 60 days before you plan to apply for financing, as it can take some time to resolve issues.

You can obtain your credit report from Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion free once a year through the Annual Credit Report Request Service. (Contact information is in Chapter 5.) Scores can be purchased for a fee. If you see any errors on your report, send a dispute letter to the relevant credit bureau(s) indicating which information is incorrect. They must investigate your claim and remove unverifiable information.

If your score is below the 680 mark, don’t despair. There are many things you can do to boost it:

  • From this point forward, always make your payments on time.
  • Repay collection accounts.
  • Pay down your debt. Keep balances under 40% of the credit limit.
  • If you already have 2-4 accounts open, avoid opening further accounts.
  • Keep older accounts active.
  • Avoid excessive credit applications.
