    The Aaron Advantage Podcast Episode 24 with Erik Goodge

    The Aaron Advantage Podcast Episode 24 with Erik Goodge

    Aaron Luttrull welcomes his guest Erik Goodge of uVest Advisory Group once again.

    This time, Erik specifically addresses some investment concerns for Realtors and their "lumpy" income. Realtors seem to hold on to their cash (since their income can be up and down) until it causes a "cash drag" on their financial health. Other small business owners can fall into this category as well. If you want to end up with a "work optional life" there are a few things to help keep from getting that "cash drag".

    1. Cash Management - Keep about 2 months of expenses in your regular checking. Have about 4 months of expenses in your savings and then get a brokerage account to use to invest your extra cash (this can still be an account that can be fairly liquid).

    2. Retirement & Tax Planning - IRAs and Solo 401Ks are good for a stand alone business owner.

    3. Unique Investment Needs - Make sure you have an appropriately diverse portfolio. Everything in one area of investment opportunities is dangerous. Having your employment income tied to your employment funds can make you a double loser if you lose your job.

    Of course this is just a taste of the podcast. Enjoy the chat and if you have any investment questions contact: Erik Goodge: 812-499-5252 or Erik@uvestadvisory.com. Also, if you have an real estate concerns or questions, contact Aaron Luttrull: 812-779-3273 or aaron@theaaronadvantage.com.

    The Aaron Advantage Podcast Episode 22 with Will Ritter

    The Aaron Advantage Podcast Episode 22 with Will Ritter

    Aaron Luttrull and Will Ritter sit down together and discuss some myths that agents wish their clients didn't believe. #ExperienceTheAaronAdvantage

    1. An Agent Doesn't Have to Expend Much Effort to Help a Buyer or Seller Today - Agents work very hard for their clients to market their properties, to find the right property for their clients and to help make their community better.

    2. Once a Property is Under Contract, Everything Goes on Autopilot - There are so many moving parts in a transaction that can go wrong and cause unseen issues that an agent works even behind the scenes to make things work (seemingly) as smooth as possible.

    3. Selling Off Market is a Better Deal for the Seller - No! In a highly competitive market, you can lose a lot of money without competition from several buyers. You also may not have buyers with a professional helping them make sure they have proper financing etc.

    4. You Don't Need to Do Anything to Prep for Sale in the Current Market - So many things you can do that can increase the appeal of your home to more interested buyers and thus put more money in your pocket. Plus, no matter what the current market is, Buyers are still as picky about a house they buy and about how much money they are going to have to put into a new home potentially.

    5. Everything I Need to Know About Buying or Selling a Home Can Be Found Online - Realtors have dealt with so many diverse situations that their experience can help you to know what professionals that may need to be contacted in varying situations to get the answers and help you need during the course of your transaction. Not one transaction works exactly the same way.

    6. It's Okay to Over Price Your Property, Since There is So Little to Buy - Overpricing can cause your property to go stale which can turn into a bigger reduction on price to move it. Appraisers won't necessarily appraise a house that is overpriced for the price a seller wants to sell their home for which could kill a sale. Properly or even lower priced properties can not only get a seller what they want for a property, but possibly even more.

    7. As Long as Sales Are Happening, Agents Are Getting Paid - Agents have a lot of expenses along with what they make plus a lot of hours invested. Brokerages get paid by their agents. Agents must pay taxes on their commissions (it's not automatically deducted). In some instances, certain transactions don't actually make an agent money. Revenue is not the same as "making money".

    8. Selling "As Is" is the Way to Go, Especially in This Market - Maybe or maybe not. In some homes this is the best thing for the client, in other times it can create a problem in moving the property because people think that means you can get a discount (when the property is already priced accordingly to the As Is condition).

    9. I Can Get a Better Deal on a Property that Isn't Listed - Certain disclosures may not be told to the buyer if off market because it's not required if it's not listed, which means a buyer can buy a property with issues that they may know nothing about ahead of time. Also, a seller may think they have the best price for their home,

    Buffini Bold Predictions Recap

    Buffini Bold Predictions Recap

    Aaron Luttrull shares some of Brian Buffini's, Dr. Lawrence Yun's and his own predictions for the real estate industry for the future. 

    Brian Buffini: https://www.buffiniandcompany.com/ 

    Brian's Predictions:
    * Lowest Inventory in 50 years, still highest of homes sold in 15 years
    *More people becoming Realtors
    *Higher agent turnover due to unexpected market changes
    *Paramount to agent survival is to find the right brokerage that provides great training and support for their agents
    *90% of buyers surveyed said they would use their agents again, but truth is 28% actually call their previous agent again due to lack of agent involvement with clients. Personal connection with clients is a must 

    Dr. Lawrence Yun: https://www.nar.realtor/lawrence-yun
    *Not all new agents are going to succeed in this market, so they need align themselves with experienced brokerages with the best training and support during the changes.
    *Highly professional skilled agents will be what is sought out  

    SOME GOOD HABITS FOR THE NEW YEAR FROM DR. YUN:
    *Have fun with the fundamentals: face to face with clients, personal connections and lots of good communication will be necessary to succeed.   *Celebrate ALL your successes, both seemingly small and large.  Need to keep that "good feeling" in your brain to keep you going through each deal.
    *Take good care of yourself and always keep training to be a better person and agent.  If you aren't improving you are becoming obsolete.

    DR. YUN's BOLD PREDICTIONS:
    *Tapering of huge home appreciations
    *Agents need to make good investments to set themselves up for the changes in real estate in order to keep themselves protected
    *Expect the market to slow down by the middle of next year, not remain a frenzied market.
    *2022 will have us seeing a changed market in general
    *2023 will be a market for skilled professionals in real estate 

    AARON'S PREDICTIONS FOR OUR LOCAL MARKET:
    *It will be mostly like the national market with increased pricing and a slow down of crazy sales, however it will still be in the average range since our market generally doesn't have huge fluctuations in prices.
    *Our local association is the largest it has been in years but we may see an exit of some agents and others moving to a team for more skills and training.
    *F.C. Tucker Emge Realtors will still be the pre-eminent training source for new agents in our local market
