Rebogateway: Using Probability As A Strategy For Real Estate Listing Leads

I had a chance to review a new product recently that takes a more strategized approach to finding listing leads for real estate agents. Rebogateway (R.E.B.O. being an acronym for Real Estate Back Office) is a product that focuses on which homeowners are most likely to sell in the near future. The emphasis is on saving the agent time and money by focusing their marketing efforts on the leads that are most likely to convert.

Rebogateway is tied into a number of data sources, from the local MLS to taxing and record-keeping authorities. The system asks two basic questions that get to the heart of the likely-seller discovery process:

1) What life events are most highly correlated with a homeowner deciding to sell?

2) Which of these events are recordable and reportable to and end user in the real estate industry?

Finding these potential home sellers allows an agent to market by mail, phone, or even door knocking in a much more effective way. The cost of marketing materials and time would reasonably be reduced if the leads being targeted were higher caliber leads.

It turns out that there are quite a few situations where homeowners have their information given to government and private sources that allow themselves to be categorized as likely home sellers for real estate agents to target for potential listings:

  • Divorces
  • Expired Listings
  • FSBOs
  • Notice of Default
  • Notice of Sale
  • Probate
  • Tax Defaults

There are also instances where a local market can be farmed for new listings based on a neighbor s home transaction, even if that home was listed or sold sold by a different broker:

  • Just Listed Market for interested buyers
  • Just Sold Market for potential sellers

Rebogateway frames all of these potential lead sources into one set of data and allows the user to search by a variety of different methods to focus on a target market. User searches based on location, life event type, and other criteria produce a list of homeowners to contact which are already verified as not currently listed, when the system is tied in to the local MLS.

For the agent who has a long-term community that they regularly farm, there is also a future events tool to keep on top of that community s homeowners life events. The user selects a geographical area by radius, location, or drawing an outline on the map, and then saves a homeowner record search. Going forward, any time one of these key life events happens within that user s defined boundaries, an email is sent from the system to the user, identifying a new prospect as a likely home seller.

There is also an interesting Tract Utility which reports turnover rates in certain locations. An agent could find that homes turn over at twice the rate in a neighboring area as they do in his/her local community and find that farming the new area is more profitable.

Real estate agents aren t easily impressed with new tools, as they get new pitches every week. The best product pitch to an agent will:

  • Reduce the amount of time needed to get a task done
  • Reduce the cost of necessary tasks
  • Generate more leads at a reasonable ROI

Rebogateway does an excellent job of taking extensive research time and costs off of real estate agents plates, and allowing them to focus on marketing to qualified leads that are more likely to result in listings.

Estate Planning Bundles Online #estate #planning #attorney #las #vegas


#

What would you like to talk about?

Welcome back

Been meaning to create a plan but not sure where to begin?

No matter where you are in the process, an attorney from our vetted network is available to help:

Your Estate Plan comes with a Last Will and Testament OR a Living Trust.

Ask away. We have answers.

Common Questions

How do I know if I need a will or a trust?

This is one of the most common questions that comes up when planning your estate. They accomplish many of the same things, but a Last Will often has to go through the probate process, while a fully funded living trust avoids probate. But a last will is easy to create, while transferring your assets into a trust can be time consuming and require additional paperwork. However, we know that this simplified explanation is often not enough to help make this difficult decision. It s for that reason that our Estate Plan Bundle comes with a full year of our Personal Legal Plan. You can purchase the bundle, and immediately schedule a consultation with an attorney in your state to help you make this decision. Many people have to decide based on their unique personal factors (state laws, family situation, size of estate etc. ), and the help of an attorney is invaluable to fully explore those details.

Do I need to speak with an attorney before starting my documents?

No, but we highly recommend it. Based on your needs, where you live and the value of your assets, a Living Trust may be more appropriate than a Last Will. An attorney who knows the laws of your state is in the best position to provide that guidance. We encourage you to make that determination before starting the Last Will questionnaire.

What if I need to make changes to my documents?

When life changes come up, many people do choose to update their Estate Planning documents, and we make that easy. One key benefit of the Estate Plan Bundle is that it comes with one full year of our Personal Legal Plan. And along with getting advice from attorneys, your membership allows you to revise your documents as often as you need to at no additional cost.

Are LegalZoom Last Wills and Living Trusts state-specific?

Yes. Our team of experienced attorneys have designed these documents to meet the specific laws and requirements of each U.S. state.

What happens after I order my bundle?

Once you order your bundle, you decide how to start building your Estate Plan. If you have the information you need, you can jump right in and begin filling out our simple online questionnaires. If you have legal questions, you can schedule a consultation with an independent attorney in your state for help. If you have questions about our questionnaire or other technical questions, you can contact our customer care team. Once all of your questions are answered and you ve submitted your questionnaires to us, we ll review your work and create your documents, sending them to you in the mail. When they arrive, make sure you re happy with them, and then follow our simple instructions for signing. Once signed, they re done! All that s left is to keep them someplace safe, and know that you can always come back to us if you need to make changes in the future.

A specialist is here to help

We re available Mon-Fri 5am-7pm PT. Weekends 7am-4pm PT

Bonds

Do You Need Bond Protection?

What is a bond?

In simple terms, a bond is an instrument that compels payment of a specific sum of money. A bond imposes an obligation upon an individual to pay a specific sum of money to another person on a fixed date.

Bail Bonds

The term “bail bond” is often seen used. What are bonds in the context of bail law? Bail is the surety/ money a defendant or pays in order to ensure the appearance of the defendant in the court on a later day. A bail bond compels payment of bail amount. In order to help defendants who cannot afford to pay the bail amount, there are entities such as bail bonding agents and bail bond companies. A bail bonding company acts as a surety for the appearance of defendants and issues bail bonds. On the assurance of a bail bond company, a court will allow the defendants to go free. In return, bail bond companies charge a percentage of the amount of the bond and also require the defendant to furnish collateral security. The company issuing the bail bond surety has to pay the bond as a penalty if the defendant fails to appear on the specified date in the court. If the bail bond agent believes that the defendant s/he bailed out is about to flee, s/he can cancel the bond performance and arrest that defendant. Bail bond agents are licensed and bonded by state law.

Surety Bonds

There are several types of bonds where each bond is different and has a specific purpose. In the context of bails and bonds, a surety bond is a type of security bond given for the amount of the bail and guarantees an accused person’s return to court. In finance, a surety bond is a bond in which one party promises to pay a specified sum to the other party if a third party fails to meet some obligation. In either case, a notice of bond should be filed before making claim on a surety bond.

Surety bonds may be of different types depending upon their field of use. A surety bond issued by an insurance company in order to assure completion of a venture by a contractor is called a performance bond. Another type of surety bond is a construction bond. It is issued by investors to protect themselves against any failure in completion of construction by builders. A payment bond is a surety bond issued by a contractor to guarantee payment to sub- contractors.

Other Bonds

There are also other forms of bonds like bid bonds, fidelity bonds, and license bonds. A bid bond is issued for the purpose of providing an assurance to a project owner to the effect that the bidder will undertake the job. Fidelity bonds are insurance bonds that protect policy holders from losses. A license bond is a mandatory bond for securing a license to pursue some business or profession.

An appeal bond is a bond given when a judgment is appealed. It is given as an assurance of payment of the original judgment amount. An appeal bond is given at the time of filing a notice of appeal or after obtaining the appeal order. Another type of bond filed at the time of appeal is the supersedeas bond. It is filed by an appellant to delay payment awarded in the original judgment pending the appeal.

Bond FAQs

What are bonds?

Bonds are debt instruments in which one person guarantees the debt of another person. By issuing a bond the obligor obliges to pay a certain sum of money on a certain date.

What are bail bonds?

Before releasing an accused person from custody, the courts will order such a person to pay a certain sum of money. This money is called bail and it is ordered to ensure the defendant’s return. To help defendants who do not have enough money to pay the bail amount, bail bond companies issue bail bonds. A bail bond is a guarantee made on behalf of a defendant that the defendant will appear in court at the specified time. The courts issue a notice of bond forfeiture to the bond surety if the defendant fails to appear in court on the specified date. Bail bonds are governed and bonded by state statutes.

What is a bond hearing?

A bond hearing is a legal proceeding held before a judge to determine if the defendant can be released on bail bond and if bail is granted, at what bail amount. It is generally held within 48 hours of the arrest. The constitution of the United States provides the limits of bond amounts to be charged for a particular crime. Question: What happens if the defendant released on bail fails to appear on the specified date? Answer: When the defendant released on bail misses a court appearance on the specified date, the court will schedule a forfeiture hearing and the date will be given by a notice to the defendant, bail bonding agents, the bail bonding company and other parties involved. If the defendant fails to appear before the forfeiture hearing the bond performance will be canceled and bond will be forfeited.

What does bail bond exoneration mean?

Bail bond exoneration is a legal process in which the liability for the amount of bond is discharged. A bail bond is exonerated if the defendant appears in the court at the specified dates. It is done after the adjudication. When a bail bond is exonerated, the bail bond company will not have any future financial obligation in relation to the defendant’s case.

What are surety bonds and what are the different types?

Surety bonds are instruments in which one person agrees to pay a certain amount of money to another person, if the other person’s debtor fails to pay the amount. A surety bail bond is a bond given for the bail amount to assure return of the accused person to court. There are various forms of bonds which vary in their purpose and nature.

Performance bond – Performance bond is a type of surety bond issued by an insurance company. It is issued as a security to ensure the completion of a project by a contractor.

Construction bond – Construction bond is a type of bond issued by investors. Such bonds are issued to protect investors from the loss caused to them by uncompleted projects by builders.

Payment bond – Payment bonds are security bonds issued by contractors. Such bonds are issued to ensure payment to sub contractors.

Bid bond – A bid bond is a type of bond that ensure the project owner that the bidder will undertake the project.

Fidelity bonds – Fidelity bonds are bonds issued by insurance companies to protect their policy holders from losses.

License bond – License bonds are bonds prescribed by statutes to pursue a business or a profession. Such bonds are mandatory to secure a license in order to engage in certain businesses or professions.

Appeal bond – Appeal bonds are given as a guarantee for the payment of an original judgment amount. It is also known as a supersedeas bond.

Undue Influence #elder, #law, #attorney, #riverside, #riverside #county, #california, #george #f.


#

Undue Influence

Undue influence is a key element in financial abuse cases. Almost always, the elderly victim was taken advantage of through coercion, manipulation or trickery and thus lost their property and money to the perpetrator.

California Civil Code Section 1575 describes undue influence as:

The use, by one in whom a confidence is reposed by another, or who holds a real or apparent authority over him or her, of such confidence or authority for the purpose of obtaining an unfair advantage over him or her;

Taking an unfair advantage of another s weaker state of mind; or

Taking a grossly oppressive and unfair advantage of another s necessities or distress.

As you can see, taking advantage of an elder is the key theme in financial abuse cases.

There are numerous ways that the elderly are taken advantage of. One of the most prolific is the improper use of financial powers of attorney. Placed into the hands of a greedy son or daughter, this powerful document can become a license to steal . Here s a quick example:

Mom had always lived independently and always handled her own finances. She would never relinquish control over her investments or bank accounts. However, over the years she began to develop symptoms of dementia short and long term memory loss. Although she had some friends, none of them felt it was their place to step in and assist her with her financial matters.

Because of the current economic situation . her son recently lost his job and his bank was threatening to foreclose on his home. He now sees an easy way out. He relentlessly badgers mom until he overpowers her deep-rooted need for independence, and unduly influences her into signing a financial power of attorney by convincing her that she needs help in paying her bills. Son now takes the power of attorney to mom s bank and adds his name on both her checking and savings accounts.

It isn t long until her accounts are depleted and she never saw it coming because of her diminished mental capacity.

Under California law, undue influence can be presumed to have occured whenever a special relationship exists between the elder and the perpetrator. Determining whether a special relationship exists involves questions of fact and depends on the circumstances of each case. Such a relationship can be established by the close proximity of the perpetrator to the elderly victim. Caregivers, nurses, friends or relatives can all, potentially, be so involved in the elder s life that such a special relationship exists to trigger the presumption that undue influence occurred.

The importance of this presumption, once established, is that it shifts the burden to the defendant (the son in the above example) to prove that undue influence did not occur.

Another factor in determining whether undue influence occurred, it is a determination as to the adequacy of consideration that was given to the elder by the defendant. In making such a determination, the Court will consider the degree of isolation, failing health, and mental capacity of the elder and what benefit, if any, the defendant provided to the elder.

One more factor is whether or not the elder obtained independent legal advice before executing a power of attorney or completing a conveyance of real or personal property. In most cases of elder financial abuse, the perpetrator did not take steps to have the transaction reviewed by an attorney.

One of these factors, by themselves, is probably insufficient to show that the elder was subjected to undue influence and that the conveyance of real or personal property should be undone. However, a combination of these factors can be enough to prove undue influence and to convince the court that the power of attorney be declared void, or that the transaction, conveyance or contract should be rescinded and the property wrongfully taken must be returned to the elder.

Many remedies exist when undue influence has been used to obtain property. California s Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act provides nearly every remedy under the sun, and a civil action can request that the defendant be liable for attorney fees, costs, and punitive damages, as well as all special and general damages.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of undue influence, then pick up the phone and give us a call. We re here to help. The initial telephone consultation is always free.

Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) #real #estate #trust #company

Real Estate Investment Trust – REIT

BREAKING DOWN ‘Real Estate Investment Trust – REIT’

REITs, an investment vehicle for real estate that is comparable to a mutual fund. allowing both small and large investors to acquire ownership in real estate ventures, own and in some cases operate commercial properties such as apartment complexes, hospitals, office buildings, timber land, warehouses, hotels and shopping malls.

All REITs must have at least 100 shareholders, no five of whom can hold more than 50% of shares between them. At least 75% of a REIT’s assets must be invested in real estate, cash or U.S. Treasurys; 75% of gross income must be derived from real estate.

REITs are required by law to maintain dividend payout ratios of at least 90%, making them a favorite for income-seeking investors. REITs can deduct these dividends and avoid most or all tax liabilities, though investors still pay income tax on the payouts they receive. Many REITs have dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs​). allowing returns to compound over time.

REIT History

REITs have existed for more than 50 years in the U.S. Congress granted legal authority to form REITs in 1960 as an amendment to the Cigar Excise Tax Extension of 1960. That year The National Association of Real Estate Investment Funds, a professional group for the promotion of REITs is founded. The following year it changed its name to the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) .

In 1965 the first REIT, Continental Mortgage Investors, is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). By the late 1960s, major investors, including George Soros. become interested in research on the value of REITs. Mortgage based REITs account for much of the growth of REITs in the early 1970s, and they fuel a housing boom. The boom busts after the oil shocks of 1973 and the recession that follows.

In 1969 the first European REIT legislation (the Fiscal Investment Institution Regime [fiscale beleggingsinstelling. FBI]) is passed in The Netherlands.

International REITs

​Since their development in Europe, REITs have become available in many countries outside the United States on every continent on Earth.

The first listed property trusts launch in Australia in 1971.

Canadian REITs debut in 1993, but they don’t become popular investment vehicles until the beginning of the 21st century.

REITs began to spread across Asia with the launch of Japanese REITs in 2001.

REITs in Europe were buoyed by legislation in France (2003), Germany (2007) and the U.K. (2007). In total, about 40 countries now have REIT legislation.

3 Main Kinds of REITs in the U.S.

1. Equity REITs invest in and own properties, that is, they are responsible for the equity or value of their real estate assets. Their revenues come principally from leasing space—such as in an office building—to tenants. They then distribute the rents they’ve received as dividends to shareholders. Equity REITs may sell property holdings, in which case this capital appreciation is reflected in dividends. Timber REITs will include capital appreciation from timber sales in their dividends. Equity REITs account for the vast majority of REITs.

2. Mortgage REITs invest in and own property mortgages. These REITs loan money for mortgages to real estate owners, or purchase existing mortgages or mortgage-backed securities. Their earnings are generated primarily by the net interest margin. the spread between the interest they earn on mortgage loans and the cost of funding these loans. This model makes them potentially sensitive to interest rate increases. In general, mortgage REITs are less highly leveraged than other commercial mortgage lenders, using a relatively higher ratio of equity to debt to fund themselves.

3. Hybrid REITs invest in both properties and mortgages.

Individuals can invest in REITs either by purchasing their shares directly on an open exchange or by investing in a mutual fund that specializes in public real estate. Some REITs are SEC -registered and public, but not listed on an exchange; others are private.

Some REITs will invest specifically in one area of real estate—shopping malls, for example—or in one specific region, state or country. Others are more diversified. There are several REIT ETFs available, most of which have fairly low expense ratios. The ETF format can help investors avoid over-dependence on one company, geographical area or industry.

REITs provide a liquid and non-capital intensive way to invest in real estate. Many have dividend yields in excess of 10%. REITs are also largely uncorrelated with stocks and bonds, meaning they provide a measure of diversification .

Online Real Estate Degrees

You don t need a degree to work in real estate, but getting an education online while working in the field is a way to advance your career more quickly. Working in real estate while you learn is a great way to apply theories and concepts from the classroom to the real world.

Online learning opportunities in this field are less numerous than in other areas of business. Still, it is possible to find high-quality options, whether you are looking for an online certificate program, a bachelor s degree or a master s. The material is easily accessible online and most institutions will work with you to help you get practical experience locally.

In most cases, you need some background in business, whether in the form of a business degree or experience working in the field, or both. In the case of an online certificate in real estate, the assumption is that you are building on a general business foundation and adding a deeper knowledge of real estate. Online bachelor s degrees in real estate offer a real estate concentration within a regular business degree. Master s programs are more focused and require you to choose an area or function of real estate in which to specialize.

Advice from the Experts

We recently interviewed Grant Thrall, President of the American Real Estate Society, and Thomas Bisacquino, President and CEO of NAIOP (Commercial Real Estate Development Association). In the interviews, they discuss how their organizations help shape the future of the real estate industry, and share some advice for students preparing for a career in the field.

School Profiles

West Los Angeles College. This institution offers you a certificate or an Associate of Arts degree in real estate, both online. If you are just getting started, the associate degree will give you the background you need and prepare you to potentially sit for your broker s license. (Be sure to check specific licensing requirements in your state.) You will study the basic principles of real estate, as well as legal and financial issues. Electives include options in property management, real estate tax law and real estate as an investment. The 30-hour program can be completed in less than a year of concentrated study, or can be stretched out to fit your schedule.

DePaul University. DePaul s online Master of Science in real estate is designed for working professionals. You have the option of working full time and earning your master s in a year, but the program is flexible enough that you can work at your own pace. The degree brings marketing, law, public policy, geography and economics experts together online for a unique learning experience. The mentoring program is designed to give even distance learners the benefit of building a network.

Introduction to Real Estate Careers

When someone is looking to rent an apartment, buy a house, sell a property or secure a business location, the first step is often to turn to a trusted real estate agent. That real estate agent, is first and foremost a salesperson, with a wealth of knowledge about the property he or she is selling and the general climate of the real estate market. This industry is largely service-oriented, meaning that a good real estate agent will accommodate client needs, not only trying to find the best property match for a client, but also being open to meet clients when they are available.

Useful Resources

Real Estate Job Description

Real estate agents provide services for people looking to buy, rent, sell, lease, or manage commercial, residential or industrial property. The job is split between finding property listings and locating buyers for these listings. At times an agent will work with a buyer, other times with a seller, and occasionally, with both at the same time.

Agents must write up the listings for the properties they handle, create buyer sheets filled with property information, and scour existing listings to assist buyers in locating a property to meet their needs. Once a property sells, a real estate agent must assist in drawing up contracts, filling out forms, and helping to locate financing. In most cases, the agent also advises buyers or sellers on pricing issues and negotiates the best possible deal.

Since real estate agents are typically independent salespeople, they must be self-motivated and able to work well without supervision. They often possess an entrepreneurial spirit, enjoying the freedom that comes from making their own decisions. Though real estate agents do have a lot of independence, they also are subject to their clients schedules, often working long hours, as well as weekends and evenings.

Real Estate Requirements

An advanced degree isn t always required, but real estate agents must be at least 18 years old, have a high school diploma, and must be licensed by the state in which they work. Some states require up to 90 hours of real estate classes, and all states require agents to pass a written test dealing with real estate law and transaction regulations. In addition, continuing education units (CEUs) and licensing renewals are required.

Some real estate agencies prefer an agent to possess an associate or bachelor s degree, especially when dealing with complex transactions or large, corporate clients. Classes in business administration, business law and finance are helpful, as are sales and marketing experience, strong communication skills, and even clerical abilities.

Deep into the digital age, real estate agents must also be tech savvy, knowing how to market properties on the Internet.

Real Estate Career Outlook

New real estate agents should be aware of two things: competition from established agents and the impact of the Web. While many buyers and sellers now turn to sites such as Craigslist, there are still opportunities in real estate. In fact, the number of real estate jobs is expected to grow faster than average through 2018.

The average annual earnings, including commissions, for real estate sales agents in 2008 were approximately $40,000; ranging from approximately $27,400 to about $64,800. Real estate brokers (those who are licensed to own their real estate businesses) tend to earn more with an average of $57,500.

Real Estate Trends

With the widespread use of the Internet to buy and sell properties, a career in real estate is not what it used to be. To be successful, agents must be savvy marketers and passionate salespeople with a strong desire to succeed.

American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. to Become Homeward Residential

COPPELL, Texas. Feb. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. (“AHMSI”) today announced that the company will change its name to Homeward Residential (“Homeward”) to reflect its expansion into residential lending and other real estate finance related businesses. The full transition to the new name, Homeward Residential, is expected to be completed in the second quarter.

“Today’s announcement is not simply a name change. Over the past 12 months we have built a full-service mortgage banking enterprise with a broad spectrum of offerings and expertise in lending, servicing and a variety of related services,” said Dave Applegate. President and Chief Executive Officer of AHMSI.

AHMSI’s portfolio of services was expanded in October 2011 with the opening of the company’s correspondent and warehouse lending operations. During the past 12 months, AHMSI has added new businesses to support the needs of customers in a challenging marketplace, including loan closing services, REO management, home valuation, special servicing, sub-servicing and asset management consulting.

The name Homeward evolved after employee and customer input, followed by additional research, analysis and audience testing. “We believe that homeownership remains a significant part of the American dream, and ‘Homeward’ is the ideal identity to support the aspirations of our customers,” added Applegate. “Our exceptional and talented employees played significant roles in helping us rename our company, and their input was valued among the entire organization. Homeward’s ultimate success rests on those same employees who are passionate about the work they do and remain steadfastly committed to finding the best possible solutions for homeowners.”

AHMSI is the 13th largest mortgage servicer in the country managing nearly $71 billion in loan servicing, representing approximately 374,000 customers. Since its inception in April 2008, AHMSI has modified over 195,000 mortgage loans, including over 32,000 under the U.S. government’s Making Home Affordable Program. AHMSI’s more than 3,000 associates work each day with the mission of helping families preserve their dream of home ownership.
