REAL Tools

Online Fintech companies are rapidly entering the Real Estate and Mortgage space, with one goal in mind, to eliminate us. It’s now more important than ever to make sure we are adding value and advising our clients, so we can’t be replaced by technology.

We have several tools, including a Real Estate Report Card, Buy vs Rent Comparison, Cost of Waiting Analysis, and many more that can position us as true advisors.

In the Market

Additional unemployment benefit has dropped from $600 per week to $400 and requires the state to kick in $100 of the $400. States can choose whether or not to participate and contribute the additional $100, so it may be $300 in some states. The added benefit will last until at least the end of the year. 

Payroll taxes can be deferred through the end of the year if you are earning less than $100,000 per year, but it has to be paid back. 

Student loan payments are now deferred through the end of the year. 

As appropriate and consistent with applicable law, landlords are encouraged to avoid eviction or foreclosures resulting from financial hardships.
