Lease Now, Buy Later

House puzzled (2)Red Team Real Estate is hosting a free home buying workshop for first-time or second-chance homebuyers on Saturday, July 29, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday’s workshop will take place at 909 W. Magnolia Avenue, Suite 2, Fort Worth, TX 76104. Anyone interested in learning the ins and outs of the home buying process is encouraged to attend.

The no-obligation workshop features industry professionals, Michael Mayes, Owner/Agent, Red Team Real Estate and Paul Duane, Mortgage Loan Originator, MiMutual Mortgage.

“We’ve spoken with many people who want to purchase a home but think they are too far away from making that dream a reality. Our Lease Now, Buy Later workshop allows current renters to gather information and make a plan, so when they are ready to move forward they are confident candidates. After attending our workshop some attendees find they are closer to home ownership than they realized.” said Michael Mayes, Owner of Red Team Real Estate. “The idea of buying a home is intimidating, especially for first-time buyers or those who may have fallen on hard times in the past. We enjoy talking about the home buying process, providing this free workshop to the community is a win-win.”

Attendees have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of the home buying process, including the true picture of renting vs buying, budgeting, savings tips, credit repair, securing mortgage financing, working with a Realtor, homeowners insurance, property taxes, closing cost expectations, and loan programs aimed to assist new and experienced home buyers.

Breakfast is provided for attendees by MiMutual Mortgage who will also be on hand to answer questions about available financing options including, FHA, Conventional, USDA, VA Loans, and more.

Change of Address

New Location. Same great service.

Lots of exciting changes are happening at Red Team Real Estate. Our big move to the corner of Magnolia and Lipscomb in the explosive Fairmount neighborhood is at the top of the list. In addition

to the almost 3,000 square feet of office space, we’ve grown in numbers to a seasoned team of 8 ready to serve all your real estate needs – residential, leasing services, property management, and commercial.

We had a great turnout for our open house in early May. Many complimented our blending of the old and new. Unfortunately, Stella’s horse, Lady Blu, was unable to make an appearance (as you know, she’s got a busy horse schedule).
“We’re excited to be on Magnolia where it’s such a happening place,” said Red Team owner, Michael Mayes. “My favorite moment of the move happened when the guys came to put the signs on the window. Of course, it was almost 2 o’clock on the day of our open house so that might have had something to do with it, but I was still so proud.” 
The new digs have ample office, conference, and gathering spaces with beautiful views of downtown Fort Worth and Magnolia Avenue. We’re looking forward to neighborhood events where Red Team can stay involved. If you’re in the area, please drop in, it would be great to see you!

Red Team News: The 7 Rules of Selecting a Property Manager sneak peek

Are you a current property owner who wants to ensure you’re getting the best return on your investment?

Red Team Real Estate is proud to announce that our very own Michael Mayes is publishing his first book, The 7 Guides When Selecting a Property Management Company. Set to debut in 2016, this book goes far beyond simply selecting a property manager. Inside you will find a wealth of information, tips and secrets that all current and would-be investors should know. Ready for more? Here’s a sneak peek of one of the topics Michael will cover:

Owners Technology

In today’s market it only makes sense to have technology working for you. Any Property Management Company worth their weight in salt will be giving your properties the leverage they deserve by using technological tools that will nourish a successful investment.

Show me the money!
Collecting rent shouldn’t be a hassle. If you’re still going door-to-door, or only accepting cash and check payments, you’re doing too much work. Every Property Manager needs to invest in technology that will allow tenants to pay in whatever manner is convenient for them. And remember, the rent you receive must be reported on your taxes, and the right software will keep detailed records of all payments. This includes monthly owner statements, cash flow reports and other information that owners need to confirm your “Rental Business” is working.

Welcome to the Inter-Web…
One of the latest and most effective tools for potential tenants and property managers to showcase their properties is online and through social media outlets. 87% of electronic device sales will be tablets and smartphones…which means property owners (or their managers) will need to accommodate this new generation of prospects and applicants with mobile online leasing tools. Investing in mobile online leasing tools allows potential tenants to do the whole application process online and saves you a heap of a paper mess!

There are only 168 hours in a week and your Property Manager should be working smart and using them wisely! Owning real estate is a business and should be treated as such. Just because someone agrees to collect the renter’s check, does not ensure they are looking out for you best interest…

The 7 Guides When Selecting a Property Management Company, coming soon in 2016!

Winning. Clients.
