The PIN Magazine - September 2016

Conference season is here! NAREB’s amazing conference has already passed us by, and if you missed it, then you really missed out on some premium professional development and connections as well as a great time. NAREB always puts on a great party and to have it in California was a great bonus. As NAHREP and AREAA step up to the plate, I know that they will meet my high expectations as they do every year. There are many problems that this country is attempting to deal with, and with these groups we can fight to bring real estate to those living paycheck to paycheck. I know with NAREB, NAHREP, NAWRB, AREAA, and many others, we will succeed in changing the lives of all Americans.

Within this issue of The Power Is Now, look for our article on Joseph Nery, 2016 President of NAHREP, and the NAHREP conference. It is sure to be one of the events of the year. Also within this ezine are analytical examinations of Austin, Texas; Seattle, Washington; and Anaheim, California. These articles will bring you to the city and let you have a look around at the national real estate. As buyers, sellers, real estate professionals, and average Joes, we need to be alert and conscious of what is going on in the real estate world or we risk missing a critical piece of information. Knowledge is power, and let’s keep that power in our hands.

One way of keeping that power is by being informed, which is why I stay on top of all of the FOMC meetings. I have a summary and analysis of the minutes from late July here as we prepare for the next meeting in late September.

Are you prepared for an emergency? I knew that at one time I truly was not. Read my article and make sure that you do not make the same mistake for yourself and your family!
