Public School Is Not A Free Ride

By: Genna Jenkin The Your Smart Money Moves Mom Request a FREE consultation: www.oxygenfinancial.net Barely a week into our back to school routine and I’m already aware of some very disconcerting patterns forming.  The kids’ interest in helping get their lunches together is waning, bedtimes are not being adhered to and I’ve badgered them all about their homework more times than I’d like to count.  However, the most troublesome of all, is that every evening I find myself with my checkbook “paying” for my children’s public school education. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand that public education in this country can tend to get the proverbial short end of the stick, so I am well aware for the need to ask parents for some financial assistance.  It’s the changes I’ve seen since I enrolled my oldest in kindergarten (12 years ago) that concern me.  I’m sure that everyone with school age children can identify with the lengthy and detailed list of school supplies that every child is responsible to…

All I Want For Back To School Is My Trapper Keeper

It’s officially back-to-school time in the state of Georgia which means polishing up the old routine of making lunches, doing homework, and the frantic mornings of getting everyone on the bus or into the carpool on time.    It is also that time of the year where you are going to begin stocking up on school supplies if you haven’t it done so already.  All I can remember from my childhood and teen years was my mom taking me to the local K-Mart to pick up a few Bic pens, some No. 2 Ticonderoga pencils, and my color coded Trapper Keeper to organize my classes.   Nowadays we’ve got an entirely different routine with school systems providing lists instructing us to practically buy an entire shopping cart of school supplies. This year, my two middle school children have lists both in excess of thirty items that were ‘necessary’ for them to get.   It seems every year the list gets larger and larger.  So what can you do to save money when it…

Duffy Agent Went Above and Beyond!

Duffy Agent Went Above and Beyond!

I’ve worked with a few agents, Joe Herbig went above and beyond in keeping me informed on potential properties that I may be interested in. He was the only agent that would work with me for more than a week.

I only know Duffy Realty through my contact with Joe Herbig and the information he passed on to me concerning the advantages of allowing Duffy Reality to be a partner in my search for a home. The step by step information really took the worry and guesswork off of me. I wish the Sellers Agent would have been as helpful. Quick responses and through information was only a phone call away. I could tell that Joe does his homework and goes the extra mile. Thanks Joe!

Working Together with Agent Nets Perfect Results

As first time home buyers, we are more than satisfied with the help and expertise that our agent Justin Trotter and Duffy Realty were able to provide. After 10+ months of searching online listings regularly emailed to us, driving by homes, and going to a couple dozen showings we finally found our dream home in Woodstock, GA. We did our homework, allowed the market to narrow our tastes and wants to fall within what we could afford, and waited patiently for the right opportunity. We could not have done this without the enthusiastic and patient assistance of Justin. He could be easily reached, responded to our calls, and answered all of our questions. It was a long process and took a lot of hard work on our part, but it was met with equal effort on the part of Justin and Duffy Realty. This made it a pleasant experience from searching to offering to closing. I recommend Justin and Duffy Realty to anyone considering buying a home in the metro Atlanta area. -Bryan and Jacqueline Roth

Top 10 Blunders that could cost you when purchasing a home.

Blunder #1 – Trying to time the market to buy or refuse to buy.

There no accurate prediction when it is the right time to buy a home. If you got lender approval and ready for home ownership, then do it. All the time waiting to time the market, you could be building equity, getting tax deductions and reaping the other advantages of owning your own home.Continue reading

The Duffy Buyer Cash Bonus

We recognize that you are doing most of the work to find your own home. If you will allow us to do the expertise part of the job, while you search for the home that you want to buy using our tools, we will share our commission with you.

In real estate transactions, at least those in the MLS, the seller pays a commission to the buyer’s agent. That commission ranges from 2 to 4% of the sales price. We are willing to pay you part of our commission based on how many houses we show you.

This program has been so successful that in 2007 alone, we gave our buyer clients over
1.1 million dollars.

Here is how it works:

If we show you:

1 to 3 houses we will give you 50% of our commission

4 houses we will give you 45% of our commission

5 houses we will give you 40% of our commission

6 houses we will give you 35% of our commission

7 houses we will give you 30% of our commission

8 houses we will give you 25% of our commission

9 houses we will give you 20% of our commission

10 houses or more and we will give you $500.00.**

Checks are mailed 5 business days after closing. .0034 of the sales price is taken from the buyer’s split.

Buyer must be under Exclusive Buyer Agency, but may elect to terminate agreement at any time.

** no .0034 of the sales price fee is taken from a $500.00 Buyer Cash Bonus check.

Here is a list of some of what we do for You…

We will give you our Superior Tools – At No Charge

We Run Comps and any other Information Tools on all Houses that You seriously consider

Here is an example of what this commission split means to you.

$300,000 home; 3% commission paid by seller to someone (might as well be us and you) = $9,000.00. We take you to 3 houses or less by you removing homes from your list by previewing them online and by drivebys. 50% commission split to you less .0034 fee = $3,480.00.
