  Buying a Home Buying a home is probably the biggest investment you will make, with long-term financial ramifications. It calls for many informed decisions and for good advice from a real estate professional. When buying a home, you can learn from the knowledge and skill of a Real Estate Agent. What can Real Estate Agents do to help you buy the right home for you?   They will help you determine how much home you can actually afford. Often, they can suggest additional ways to accrue the down payment and explain alternative financing methods. They can also introduce you to a mortgage counselor and arrange to have you "pre-approved" which can improve your negotiating position and enable you to achieve your home-buying objectives faster and with less stress. Providing client level services...

We have a couple days of warm weather for another month or so, and then we will have some that are cold. The nights in Wisconsin are colder, and like anything else in life, cycles take place. I began to think about when I was a Wisconsin bee keeper not too long ago, how much I enjoyed it, and how it was very similar to Waukesha County Real Estate at times. If they have not done it by now a lot of Wisconsin Bee farmers will go out to theircolonies , or have went out to their colonies, and after they clean the colonies, put a large sugar cake in the colony, and put a mite strip in there to protect to the colony, they will wrap the protection around the colony so the bees can get ready for Spring. The Queen will be checked to see how she is doing, the drones and workers as well. The hives ...

 When looking for a Waukesha County real estate agent one of the most important thing you want to establish is that the agent can utilize their time management correctly. How is that you say? Well, lets look at some things that are important and some things that are crucial. When you hire an agent you first of all would expect that agent to return your calls. There are times that calls go to my cell phone or voice mail but I firmly believe everyone deserves a call back. Not a week from now, don't forget the call, but return it in a fashionable and timely manner. It drives me nuts when people that do far less business never return their calls, and top it off with a phone message saying they return their calls between 1-2:30 in the afternoon. If you were my agent I would have fired you a ...

In this installment of  Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#5) 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. While there are a number of fine offices and companies located ...

  In this installment of  Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#4 of 6)  we will talk about Waukesha County real estate agents specializing in different areas of the real estate Industry. This might seem very interesting to note that I see many Waukesha County real estate agents taking on different projects but I also know many that have a certain niche they have developed. There are those that I know which their niches make them strong. I know some people that work primarily on short sales. It requires a lot of time but because they have it down they make their numbers work. Then again I know agents that do nothing but land development and subdivisions. Again, these agents sell other avenues of real estate but they have a great knowledge of ...

 In this installment of our series Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#3 of 6) we will talk about what to look for in selecting a commercial/Investment broker whether you are buying or selling commercial real estate. It's easy to see a lot of the great buys out there and there are many parts to the equation in buying or selling commercial real estate. When I sit down with a party that starts to pursue commercial avenues I ask them their needs and wants. I always recommend that they have a good attorney and accountant to talk to. I further ask them whether they are buying or selling how their accountant is going to structure the transaction, how they are going to finance the transaction and if I will be helping them find financing, and if th...

The topic today in Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#1 of 6) is finding the right agent to list your home. There are many real estate agents that are all too ready to list your home. There are a number of thoughts you need to entertain when hiring the right one. The first that comes to mind is the number of years they have been actively selling real estate, and do they sell or have they sold enough real estate to have gained lots of experience. The question is to ask them specific questions. I have put together a report entitled "The 19 Questions you must ask a real estate agent BEFORE you list your home". In this report are very specific questions that are to be asked to narrow the selection very fast. This saves lots of possible headach...

A townhouse is a style of construction, whereas condominium and co-op are types of ownership. A townhouse is basically a building or unit that shares a common wall with the building or unit next door. The walls are usually straight and entry is usually from the ground floor. Townhouses usually have two or more stories. A townhouse can be a style of condominium.  A condo is where you own the actual structure of the building jointly with the other members of the association, along with common areas such as swimming pools, tennis courts or other common areas. Individually, you own the airspace and interior of the structure, but not the building itself. You and the other members of the association own the structure together. A co-op is where you own shares of a corporation or organization ...

When you live in Wisconsin and looking at the Oconomowoc Wisconsin Real estate for sale you pretty much know we have our pride. We love our Waukesha County Lakes and Waukesha County Lake Homes, we love the Waukesha County farms and all Wisconsin farms, we love the Spring/Summer season, and we love the Fall/Winter season, but there is a third season that just makes Wisconsin a legend in football. That is Packer season and the Green Bay Packers. It's serious stuff here and one can often hear church services ending with "I know everyone is praying for the Packers today"or even the Pastor or the priest at the end of a service saying "Go Pack". This is a religion itself. Tailgating, parties, Packer Sunday, and if you are really lucky the pilgrimage where one makes the trip to Lambeau field i...
