TamiSteveTami Bonnell and Steve Morris Tami Bonnell and Steve Morris

Once again, the Swanepoel Power 200 has named EXIT Realty Corp. International Founder and Chairman, Steve Morris, and CEO, Tami Bonnell, among the top movers and shakers in the real estate industry.

Among the Top 200 Most Powerful People in Residential Real Estate 2017, Morris ranked #44 and Bonnell #66.  Among the SP200 Corporate Executives, Morris ranked #20 and among the SP200 Women Leaders, Bonnell ranked #13.

According to Stefan Swanepoel, real estate industry trend-watcher, the Swanepoel Power 200 “is not a popularity contest. It is not based only on a single criterion such as head count, office count or revenue. And it is never ‘pay to play’.”

The website goes on to state, “Leaders are evaluated based on their personal influence, tenure, office, decision-making power, the financial resources at their disposal, their company or organization’s industry significance and geographic reach, and public announcements about pending changes.”

Have you noticed yet? Bad leadership creates a bad atmosphere. We are super proud of our leadership here at EXIT Realty Central. We are extremely fond of our franchise leadership, and regional leadership! And our International leaders are always approachable and take time to make you feel welcome. This lends to our perception as EXIT as a family. We definitely feel like we are part of a bigger something. If you would like to see for yourself, call Ronda Morrison at 757-466-1009. 

Money Saving Tips On Your Homeowner’s Insurance

When shopping for home insurance, there’s much more to consider than how much your coverage will cost. Your agent or insurance company will determine how much it would cost to replace your home and many of the items inside. Most standard policies will provide coverage for damage to your home (and many belongings) caused by theft, fire and lightning, smoke, frozen pipes, ice and snow.

The price you pay for insurance can vary by hundreds of dollars, depending on the insurance company you buy your policy from. Here are some things to consider when buying homeowners insurance:

Shop Around

Ask your friends, contact your state insurance department, check consumer guides, and contact insurance agents, companies and online insurance quote services. This will give you an idea of price ranges and tell you which companies have the lowest prices. But don’t consider price alone. The insurer you select should offer a fair price and deliver the quality service you would expect if you needed assistance in filing a claim. When you’ve narrowed the field to three insurers, get price quotes.

Raise Your Deductible

Deductibles are the amount of money you have to pay toward a loss before your insurance company starts to pay a claim, according to the terms of your policy. The higher your deductible, the more money you can save on your premiums.

Don’t confuse what you paid for your house with rebuilding costs

The land under your house isn’t at risk from theft, windstorm, fire and the other perils covered in your homeowners policy, so don’t include its value in deciding how much homeowners insurance to buy. If you do, you will pay a higher premium than you should.

The Most Important Strategy For Selling Your Home…

House with words setting the right price

When it is time to sell your home, you want to price it to yield as much return as possible. Pricing strategy is one of the most important elements in selling your home.
A market analysis of your home will help you determine value. This involves analyzing the current competition–other like properties currently on the market. I’ll look at properties that have already sold, to determine what people have been willing to pay for similar properties. I will also analyze properties that haven’t sold, some of which are overpriced.

The goal is to price the property accurately for the marketplace. You don’t want to leave money on the table, but you don’t want to overprice your home either. If you overprice the property, you risk having your home sit on the market. Then you may have to drop the price below what you could have received if it had been priced correctly to begin with. Upon seeing a home that is fairly priced, most motivated buyers offer full or almost full price.

When you are ready to sell, I’ll be happy to stop by for a quick view of your home. Together we will price it to sell for top dollar, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of inconvenience to you! Please call us at 757-466-1009 and let’s get started!

Should You Get A New Home Or A Previously Owned Home?

Man and woman looking at a paper deciding new orpreviously owned home in coastal virginia New Or Previously Owned?

What kind of home are you looking to buy? New construction or previously owned? There are advantages to each approach.

Previously owned pros

  • You may not have the option to purchase or build a new construction home in your desired neighborhood. If location is a top priority, buying a resale home may be your only choice.
  • Established neighborhoods sometimes provide a stronger community base than newer developments.
  • Mature landscaping, including larger trees are typically not available with new construction homes.
  • Most home owners sell a property with all necessary appliances included, so you know the home is move-in, live-in ready.

New construction pros

  • Modern floor plans typically include popular room types and layouts that might not be available in older homes.
  • When you buy a new home, you often have the opportunity to choose the appliances you want and pick custom details like flooring options, window treatment, paint colors, etc. (Though these choices/upgrades usually come with additional cost.)
  • New homes are often constructed with energy-efficient materials and system including insulation, windows and heating/cooling systems.
  • Home builders often offer added protection to homebuyers by offering a home warranty.

If you would like additional information on which option might be your best choice or are ready to look at homes, please call us. We would be happy to help you!
