Keeping Up with Contactless Payments

Posted 7/16/20

Information provided by Buffini & Co

 

As we come through the impact of COVID-19, contactless forms of payment have become more common over the past several months and, going forward, will be important in everyday life. Contactless payment tech is easy to use and healthier than exchanging cash, making it an attractive option for consumers looking for safety and convenience at the grocery store, takeout counter or in some cases, the gas pump.

As this technology continues to catch on in your community, and across the world, we wanted to send you a quick guide to how it all works. The information we’re posting this month explains the various forms of contactless payment and where you can use it, plus some security tips for paying with your phone. You’ll learn more about popular peer-to-peer payment apps that allow you to pay someone back without handing off cash.

Our society isn’t going totally cashless anytime soon, but contactless payment is proving to be a secure, cleaner option at the checkout counter. Hope this helps you out next time you’re on a grocery run!

It’s been about two months since the coronavirus pandemic put North America on pause. By now, you’ve probably noticed just how rapidly things can change in this situation. With so much information out there, it can be difficult to make sense of it all — especially when it comes to the economy.

To help you gain a bit of clarity, we wanted to share some highlights from an interview with real estate leader Brian Buffini and Dr. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Research at the National Association of REALTORS®. They went over where the housing market stands right now, and you’ll find the takeaways from their conversation in the enclosed Item of Value.

We hope this leaves you with some peace-of-mind during these uncertain times. Just remember, this too shall pass. As a BONUS we including a snap shot of the latest OC Housing Report: V-Shaped Recovery. (Due to restrictions, we can not post the full report.

How to Create Functional Spaces in Your Home During the Coronavirus Outbreak

Posted 4/7/20

Information provided by The Paperless Agent

 

We’re all being encouraged to #StayHome as much as possible these days. To help you make the best of it, we wanted to share a few tips for creating comfortable and functional spaces within your home for work, school, and play.

 

🏠 BEGIN WITH THE BASICS

An emergency preparedness kit is a great addition to any home, even under normal circumstances. [Click here for a FREE copy of our Home Emergency Preparation Checklist.]

🏠 WORKING FROM HOME

Set up a designated space for work so it doesn’t creep into your home life, and vice versa. A red stop sign on your door or desk can signal to family members that you shouldn’t be disturbed.

🏠 HOMESCHOOLING YOUR CHILDREN

Position supplies nearby so they are independently accessible, and place trash and recycling bins within reach for easy cleanup. A plastic tablecloth can turn an academic space into an art studio.

🏠 STAYING FIT

Look for an open area in your home or garage with a minimum 6’ x 6’ space per person. Search YouTube for exercise videos—there are even some great ones geared towards kids!

🏠 SOCIALIZING FROM A DISTANCE

Try using Google Hangouts or Zoom to facilitate a virtual happy hour or book club, or host a Netflix Party to watch (and chat about) movies with friends.

 Want more great tips for creating functional spaces within your home for work, school, and play?  Check out our latest blog post.

And if you’re feeling isolated right now, please realize that you are not alone. We want to be a resource to our clients and community through good times and bad. If you and your family are in need of assistance, please reach out and let us know how we can help.

 

 

Getting Clarity During COVID-19: This Too Shall Pass

Posted 4/2/20

Information provided by Buffini & Company

It can be a little scary to check the markets right now, wouldn’t you agree? But before you start to stress, we want to encourage you to take a step back. Now more than ever, it’s important to cut through the noise and seek out wisdom from industry experts whose research explains exactly what is going on with our economy. Check out the fact sheet below — in an exclusive interview on The Brian Buffini Show podcast, Real Estate leader Brian Buffini spoke with Dr. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Research at the National Association of REALTORS®, to separate market fact from fiction during these unusual times. The state of the market is constantly changing, but we hope this gives you some peace-of-mind as you navigate it. This too shall pass.

Oh, by the way®… if there is anything we can do to be of value to you and your family, please give us a call. We will be happy to help you through this difficult time, anyway we can, in a healthy, safe and sanitary way.

What’s Ahead for Real Estate in 2019?

Posted 1/22/19

Information provided by the Paperless Agent

With so much uncertainty in the stock market right now, many of our clients are naturally concerned about where the housing market is headed in 2019.

Fortunately, the real estate market has some good news to offer. Economists expect sales levels to stabilize in the coming year and for home values to continue rising, although at a more modest pace than we saw earlier in the decade.

We’re committed to delivering the truth to our clients, whether it’s positive or negative. And the reality is, much like the stock market, the real estate market will experience ups and downs.

But people will always need a place to live and raise their families, and the majority of them will want to do it in their own home. Experts remain confident that the real estate market will continue to offer a path for Americans to build wealth over the long term … and we wholeheartedly agree.

If you’re concerned, or just curious, you should check out the attached report, that answers the question: What’s Ahead for Real Estate in 2019?

Or head over to our blog, where we share even more detailed real estate predictions and offer some steps you can take today to prepare to make a move this year: [OCRealEstateLifeStyle.com]

If you have plans to buy or sell a home in 2019, reply to this email or give us a call at 949-770-9888. We can run a Free Comparative Market Analysis on your current home to give you an idea of what it’s worth. And if you’re looking to buy a new home, we can set up a customized search so you’ll get notified when new listings that meet your criteria hit the market.

Let’s start making your 2019 real estate dreams a reality!
