What is  a million dollar handshake, part 2

You find yourself at a conference and out of the blue a person holds out their hand to you and then introduce themselves by saying hello followed by your name and then continue to say “I’m” followed by their name. They then continue to tell you that they have been following you online and watching your progress. They seem to know your business and they seem to know you.

What is a million dollar handshake?

To those of you who believe a handshake is just a handshake you are wrong!

A handshake can say many different things. It can elude to strength, weakness, confidence, arrogance, compassion,and more. A handshake can also seal a million dollar deal.

What a handshake does not do is impose a first impression.

A handshake will reinforce a first impression, and set a relationship status in place.

When it comes to buying or selling a house price per square foot always comes into the picture. The question remains what is a square foot? Well, I’m here to give you the answer. A square foot is a unit of measure. It’s 12 inches by 12 inches the size of the average ceramic tile.

Price per square foot can be measured on floor space or wall space and is often used by tradespeople when pricing out a job so that the price that they give is somewhat consistent.

Attention Pilots:

Have you ever wondered who you might be flying over the next five years?

We have.

Over the next few years the private jet, private transport industry is going to take off like never before. People who are finding their way to success are becoming more obscure and coming up in many different areas. They are also rising much faster than they used to. They also want less responsibility and are wiling to pay a premium for it.

New listing alert

Did you know that even when the market is good 20% of home seller’s start by listing their homes as “For Sale by Owner”? This number increases when the market is a seller’s market and prices are dropping.

Builders. Save yourself some money.

It takes some time to build a house and a lot of effort goes in but have you ever looked behind you while working on building that home. People are watching! and when you go home at night they go in, walk around and dream of what it would or could look like if it was their house. Did you know that you can use this anticipation to your advantage?

Closing costs.

I love numbers and I love to understand them, if I don’t understand them I will not proceed to sign anything. For me, this is true for everything from purchasing a vehicle to selling a house or partnering in a business.

Numbers are important and if you don’t understand the numbers you will lose out on some money or a lot of money.

Invest locally or invest globally

I’ve been looking into getting an investor for Istockhomes and in doing so have come to the conclusion that the hardest part is actually meeting people.

The one thing I’ve noted is that most of us don’t like to be approached, cornered, or pummelled with so much input that we end up ignoring most of it even when the input or email could be a diamond in the rough.
