Mind Reading 101: The 10 Questions You Need To Ask Your Team Every Week

Mind Reading 101: The 10 Questions You Need To Ask Your Team Every Week | Today's real estate market | Scoop.it

I have found that regularly asking questions is an agile and lightweight way of keeping up with what’s really going on. Answers become conversations about what is most essential and meaningful for the team and the company, and those conversations transform into action.

 

The first place to start is by asking the right questions. Here are some of the best I’ve found:

 

1. What’s going well in your role? Any wins (big or small) this week?

 

This is a great place to start. Employees get to celebrate and even brag a little about all the positive stuff that happened that week by simply answering that question.

The quickest way to overcome challenges and get unstuck is to say, “I’m stuck!” When we can identify where we’re stuck and then bring someone else’s attention to the challenge at hand.

Fabian Calvo: the Next Real Estate Collapse & Buying Gold-Silver | Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog

Fabian Calvo: the Next Real Estate Collapse & Buying Gold-Silver | Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog | Today's real estate market | Scoop.it

Forget what you are hearing about stiffer mortgage lending requirements.  It’s not true.  Real estate expert Fabian Calvo says, “If you can fog up a mirror or you have a pulse, they will give you a home loan.  That’s what they have done with the car loans, and that’s what they are doing with housing loans.”  The so-called new rules do not have any down payment credit score requirement.  Zero percent down loans are going to make a very big comeback.  According to Calvo, “After the mid-term election, you’re going to see no-money-down loans just really roar back.  It’s all part of the pump and dump I’ve been telling you about for well over a year.”  So, are the housing market problems behind us?  Calvo, whose company buys and sells $100 million in distressed real estate debt annually, says, “Bottom line is we are still in a situation where half of every mortgaged home in America is completely underwater, and the Fed is going to have to print money for a very long time before those values return.  It’s just a matter of fact.” Calvo goes on to say, “Now, worst of all, they are beginning to securitize so they can bring in even more capital.  A third of all real estate in America is rental properties.  You are going to have Wall Street being the biggest landlord in America.  It’s subprime 2.0.” 

 

According to the Director of the Consumer Financial Bureau, Richard Cordray, new mortgage lending rules are supposed to make sure “the great mortgage meltdown never happens again.”  So, is the housing market more resilient to another downturn?  No way, says Calvo,“They’ve securitized the rental properties, which are now making the net effect of a collapse in values in the market much more devastating ...

Have clients sitting on the fence about selling their home?  Then them:

Low inventory is the primary challenge for potential homebuyers, which is necessitating more aggressive strategies.  That means it's a seller's market.

 

Tell them this, too: Higher mortgage rates could seriously impact real estate market trends. Experts predice mortgage rates to rise.  This could significantly limit sales and price gains, reducing the ability of buyers to buy.


So this spring season benefits from a combination of things which benefit sellers.

Often, when we take steps towards happiness, it all seems so slow.... But this is the perspective of the mind, Which is different from the soul!

 

When nothing seems to happen, let's remind to ourselves that our higher self knows exactly what to do and where to go! 

 

Once we have expressed a TRUE INTENTION to be happy, we will make it!

I am a huge history fan.  While I also believe in the Law of Attraction and recently read something that disturbed me…studying history leads us to repeat it because we have put attention towards it.

Michael Stuart's curator insight, December 25, 2013 12:43 AM

Here are ten things housing experts expect to see in 2014:


1. More homes will be available
2. Mortgage rates will rise
3. Mortgages will be easier to get
4. Home prices will rise 3%
5. Fewer homeowners will be underwater
6. Affordability will decline
7. Ownership will decline
8. Americans will move
9. Foreclosures will fade
10. Home buying process less crazed


During the bust, investors bought as many as one out of every five homes in America, according to Redfin. The perfect storm of increased inventory, higher prices, and fewer foreclosures means that investors are stepping out of the buying market, giving way for regular folks.


Add to that the loosening credit rules, and the housing buy market begins to look more normal. “All in all, more inventory, less competition from investors, and more mortgage credit should all make the buying process less frenzied than in 2013,” says Kolko of Trulia
