After working hard for so many years, you might have purchased a home you are proud of. However, you might have heard about folks whose families were unable to get the family home after a parent’s death because it was tied up in court with probate issues.
 
As a parent and spouse, you probably want to spare your children from the expense and burden of probate court. Here are 3 ways to protect your home from probate so that it goes to the person or people you wish it to with as little delay as possible.

101 Things Everyone Needs To Know About Real Estate Investing

As with many other aspects of life – the real estate business can be a real jungle to maneuver. For many of us, it's exceedingly easy to lose focus, make bad decisions and get sidetracked along the way (often times, without even knowing it).
This past week, I've been asking some of my friends in the industry for their input on this issue. My goal was to compile a list of the most important recommendations these experts had to offer from their years of experience in the real estate business. What I got was a healthy collection of insights that I think you'll find quite enlightening.
Specifically, my question was this:

If you could only give 3 recommendations to a new real estate investor (based on your own experience in the business), what would be your Top 3 most important pieces of advice?

You would be hard pressed to find anyone with more of an inclination toward DIY home staging than me. In fact, I can think of no better way to present a property for sale. There is evidence to suggest that a properly staged home can sell for more money and in a shorter period.
The only question is: Are you doing it right?
It’s relatively easy to find advice on how to become a better home stager, but sometimes the most effectively staged homes are founded on the things you didn’t do. Remember, it’s just as important to appeal to prospective buyers, as it is not to scare them away. The trick is to eliminate the mistakes so that the highlights shine even brighter. In other words, sometimes it isn’t about what you have done that resonates the most with potential buyers, but rather what you refrain from doing.
