Junior Achievement- Junior Achievement does some incredible things for our students. When we think about all the things we know we realize that much of what we know we learned from others. Junior Achievement does that by teaching kids about financial literacy. They teach based on the students age and level of learning. They learn how a business runs, how to pay bills, how to balance a checkbook, how the stock and bond market runs, how a city's economy works, how to read your utility bill and even how taxes and elections work. Many students graduate high school without knowing many of these important things. To become involved or volunteer in Junior Achievement contact them at www.jaok.org.

Why is Fall and Winter a Good Time to Buy?- Winter Buyers are generally more serious. There is often less competition in the Winter because most buyers that look are serious buyers. They are not likely to be looking for design ideas but are likely out to purchase. In addition, right now in the market, interest rates are at a great rate which means more home for you money.

How to Deal With Squatters on Your Property for Sale?- There are many things to consider- legal issues of landlord and tenant act, do they have permission to be there, and much more. It can take some time to get through the eviction process of that is the proper procedure under the law. Coaxing people out can be more effective sometimes though. Always file for eviction and follow the proper legal process for your situation. However, letting them know that you will withdrawal the eviction notice if they leave before a certain time can sometimes help them be motivated to leave.
Selling and Rental/Leases- If you are selling your home but have a renter that is still in their rental/lease contract, what do you do? The sale is subject to the lease, unless there is a provision in the lease that states otherwise. The tenant will get to stay if there isn't . You can buy your way out of the lease but giving them a free month or $x in order to buy them out of their lease. Most people are willing to work with you if you understand their situation and try to work with them. Be courteous and try to work with them.
If Someone Died in My Home Do I Have to Tell? This is called a psychologically impacted property. What we have to disclose in Oklahoma are physical defects to the property- roof leaking, lead based pain, wiring issues, history of a fire, etc. Homeowners don't have to disclose a death, crime or murder however.
Encroachment Problems?- Many times property owners find that one owners fence is encroaching on the others property line. Sometimes this will work out well and the homeowners will work together to fix it. Others times it doesn't work out well. When one owner decides to sell their property what happens? The first step is to hire a land survey company to show the actual boundary for the property for the purpose of knowing not only property line but where the fence can be placed. The easiest way to deal with this is to coax them out and get them to fix the problem without spending a lot fighting over it.

Darryl speaks about one of his favorite places to volunteer--Junior Ac
"Working with eXp Realty was a pleasure. When we started, we had no idea what we wanted, but our buyer agent helps us figure out the pros and cons of all our options. Our agent went the extra mile willing to put in the extra effort to answer our questions, to make sure we were happy with our decisions, and educated about the market and local area.
