kaera mims: Looking like a "property management week"... - 04/20/11 09:40 AM
So Monday was the Virginia Residential Landlord Tenant Act (VRLTA) Update and yesterday I went to the monthly Virginia state chapter of NARPM breakfast meeting. (If I am going to do this whole property management thing, I want to do it right)!
The topic was Eviction and the special guest speaker was Sheriff Gabe Morgan of Newport News. Hoping I don't need to use the tips he gave me today, but if and when an eviction does need to be done, I feel more informed on how to do it correctly. Landlords and tenants should be aware there is a legal … (2 comments)

kaera mims: Learned lots at the VRLTA Update - 04/19/11 12:32 AM
I attended a very informative meeting today - VRLTA Update with Chip Dicks. VRLTA stands for the Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. In the real estate professional world, you might consider it our bible of sorts. Even though I have a short attention span, I love these annual sessions with Chip because he always has such great, up to date information and is great about asking questions. Given that I represent the landlords an treat my tenants and tenant prospects with ordinary care, it is important to learn about new legislation and tips on business practices.
Interesting thing was when … (1 comments)

kaera mims: Military Homeowner Assistance Program - 04/16/11 11:35 PM
I just attend a Lunch & Learn at our local Realtor Association where the topic was about the military HAP (Homeowner's Assistance Program). I first heard about this topic on a listing I was showing to a buyer (we are closing this upcoming Tuesday on a property that was better suited for her) and the listing agent was kind enough to tell me a little about it. 
Basically it is similar to a short sale, although the bank is not involved. If a military service member was given PCS orders prior to September 30, 2010 and they purchased their home in … (4 comments)

kaera mims: Benefits of a Home Warranty... - 04/16/11 09:15 PM
First of all, I am not a representative with a home warranty company so I am not an expert on the subject, but I do see their value and think consumers need to know more about them. 
I had a Facebook friend contact me earlier this week because she knows I am in real estate and wanted to know if I could recommend a home warranty. Um, YES! 
Once we got on the phone, she further explained that she and her husband recently built a house (kudos to them) and they got a "department store" warranty on the appliances, but had … (4 comments)

kaera mims: Choosing the Right Agent... (Advice) - 04/03/11 04:29 PM
There are tons of real estate agents out there, but it is so important to find one that works well for you. You should think of the following when looking for the right agent for you! 
Credentials. There are different ones which mean different things, but designations may be important to you. Or whether or not they have their Broker's license. For example, I have my e-Pro, where I learned about how to use technology to help me assist my buyers and sellers. Length in the business. Being a newbie is not a bad thing (especially if they have a mentor … (4 comments)
