There is an old saying that "action speaks louder than words" It dawned on me after I met with a new buyer yesterday that he was happy that I wanted to teach him and show him lots of things he needed to know when you are buying investment property in Waukesha County or are acquiring rental properties for sale in Waukesha County. I have always been of the nature that I want their journey to be a pleasant one and I want them to keep coming back and letting me help them with their portfolio. I just wanted to reiterate that when you work with me I will show you how to calculate your basis, how to complete a CFAT ( cash flow after taxes) and APOD ( annual property operating data sheet ) I will make sure your accountant and attorney see everything we are working on including making sure your ...

It's a week into October and the meter is ticking for the first time buyer tax credit. Sometimes you just have to believe in a good thing. This is one of those times. The first time buyer tax credit is for real, and it will only last for so long. Realistically, a buyer will want to have an offer on a property in Waukesha County sometime this October so they can close by November 30th, 2009. Have questions about the credit? Want to start, but need to know the steps or the procedure? Call me and I will be glad to talk with you. You can always email me at tom@tombraatz.com and request a buyer package that will certainly be of help. I have lots of great lenders I work with, and they would be more than happy to pre qualify you for the loan amount you could obtain. By all means feel free to c...

 It's that time of year again in the Waukesha County real estate market. It's time for road side stands of sweet corn, it's time for kids and adults to go out to the farms and pick their favorite pumpkin. It's time for apple orchards and apple cider, and it's time for all that makes Waukesha County so beautiful in fall. There is a certain peace of bundled corn stalks, and colored corn and gourds. A sight that is sure to take your breath away every time is the sun casting it's rays over all the wonderful Waukesha County farms and countryside. This agent will never get tired at looking at the peaceful cows and animals laying down in the field and enjoying the day for everything it's worth. It's also time to get that on-line market and complete idea of what your home is worth if you are in...

I think flat tires are never anticipated and when they happen they can through a whole schedule off. Recently I had a tire blow out in my little five speed car and i needed some work done fast. Let me tell you there is certainly such a thing as perfect gentlemen and companies that make you feel great and these companies know what it means to deliver stellar customer service. I walked into Big Bear Tire in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin and Marty and Jon immediately took care of me, and it was a bargain. I think the reason Big Bear Tire has such a great reputation is because they have superb people like Marty and Jon making tires a lot easier, a lot more affordable, and customer care that is truly spectacular. When you need tires in Waukesha County or are in the market to be buying tires in Ocono...

My son Spencer just loves to fish, and as a compromise I can bring paperwork to the park and let him cast his pole out until the cows come out. I ask him if he caught anything and he always comes back with a "I saw a 5 foot catfish and just missed it." I then reply with a "If he jumps up on the pier for a minute and starts saying Hello, Hello, I want you to ignore him." Oconomowoc and the Waukesha County real estate market has a lot of wonderful people in it. We live in times where people want to believe in something more than ever these days. In this park on Lac La Belle is a wishing fountain. I do find it a very pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by, but I also have noticed something that really catches my eye. In the two hours I am there I am amazed at the number of people ...

In a relatively short amount of time we have seen radically different ways of thinking, and major change in certain thought patterns in the Waukesha County real estate market. Radical changes in personal beliefs, the ways homes are bought and sold, and the organization skills used to start and end the home buying, as well as the home selling process. These paradigm shifts displayed instill a whole new set of norms of what buyers, sellers, and real estate agents alike may have been used to, or perceived to be the former way of Real Estate. For years there was a fast cycle of bull-bear markets that changed relatively quickly. When this cycle began to take a lot longer other variables made adjustments in a like timely fashion. The real estate market and the correction we see taking place i...

I must confess that when I walk by my home and am carrying boxes out I noticed a little tree growing out of the gutter. It dawned on me that I missed that area last year. Or at least I tell myself that to sound good. Proper maintenance of a home can start with keeping your gutters clean and free of debris. This can prevent ice damming in very cold and snowing areas, allow proper drainage away from the house, and can prevent small trees from growing in your gutters. I did make a note to clean those when I get back. Sure hope it does not escape me in the next couple days. Either way; I have a link explaining how to do it properly. I do like the option of hiring someone myself. The Waukesha County Real Estate market is about to have lots of leaves falling and now is the time to start think...

South on Hwy 67 by Eagle, Wisconsin sits a magnificent place to visit, explore, and enjoy. It is called Old World Wisconsin. With a short drive you can step back into time and see how many immigrants made there way to Wisconsin, lived their life, and to see how life was lived in Wisconsin's historical times at Old World Wisconsin  Old World Wisconsin is a vivid re-creation of the working farmsteads and settlements established by European immigrants in America's heartland. You can walk down streets of yesterday and watch how life was. See farms with magnificent animals and primitive means of farming and the perseverance and work of a society with vision. See first hand the food preparations, kitchens, the one room school sessions, wonderful gardens and more. This is a great time for an i...

This weekend is Labor Day weekend. It's baseball games, football games, back yard barbecues, family gatherings and the essence of celebrating the people of the United States that work and labor everyday. It is a weekend of rest for many, and Labor Day weekend has been celebrated for many years. Per  Wikipedia, Labor Day is defined as a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September. The holiday originated in Canada out of labor disputes ("Nine-Hour Movement") first in Hamilton, then in Toronto, Canada in the 1870s. In 1882, American labor leader Peter J. McGuire witnessed one of these labor festivals in Toronto. Inspired from Canadian events in Toronto, he returned the USA, to New York and organized the first American "labor day" on September 5 of the same year....

In this installment of  Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#5-6) we will talk about the need to find a Waukesha County Real Estate agent that is very well connected; a support system and company, an active Internet presence, and the use of technology in in their business. I would be pretty fair and correct in saying that you could get any Waukesha County real estate agent to tell you they can get the job done, but there are many factors that can help you make a better and more informed decision about selecting the agent that can get the property listed, find you the right property, and get you to a successful closing with everything all addressed and followed in a correct manner. I have plenty of friends that own their own company and they ...
