[caption id="attachment_27569" align="aligncenter" width="960"] What's your post-Covid home like? A solar powered Jetson's home in the clouds with his'n hers Zoom rooms? Tell us!
By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
We'd like to know how your housing needs have changed recently and what you plan on doing about it. The lifestyles of many many people have been altered significantly by pandemic rules. The home you own may not be as accommodating as it once was - its size, layout and location may no longer "fit."
Think about how the the Covid-19 pandemic has changed your idea of a functional home. For example, are you struggling with school aged kids and find yourself needing extra room for your suddenly always-at-home family? Are you trying to figure out a place to home-school the kids in your existing home?
Have you discovered that working from home is more productive than you thought? Can a different home setup allow you to somehow keep ...

Help US rattle Mark Zuckerberg's brain!

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.

Starbucks just joined the #StopHateforProfit movement today, so did we, (#globalpropertysystems,) by suspending our July advertising on Facebook and all other social media in protest of allowing hate speech. Here's why you should too.
The movement's website stophateforprofit.org cites numerous examples of how Facebook has allowed hate speech on it's platform, including:
"They allowed incitement to violence against protesters fighting for racial justice in America in the wake of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks and so many others.
They named Breitbart News a “trusted news source” and made The Daily Caller a “fact checker” despite both publications having records of working with known white nationalists.
They turned a blind eye to blatant voter suppression on their platform."
StopHateforProfit.com points out that putting a dent in ...

Scam Alert Update! Virus cures, Facemask deals, Census scams and more!

April 16, 2020
From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems


We have a friend who owns property on the island of Antigua in the Caribbean. An Antiguan real estate agent contacted her claiming to have a buyer willing to give her over $2 million dollars for her two undeveloped mountainside properties and an adjoining lot with a small house built on it. The agent said our friend needed to sign him as her real estate agent so he could conduct the sale. Fortunately, she asked us to read over his contract.
We smelled a rat immediately. For one thing, if there was already a buyer, why did she need to hire an agent to represent her? We ran a Current Market Analysis for similar properties sold recently in Antiqua and the offering was way more than anything listed or sold. The truth came out when we read the fine print in the contract. It specified that if the properties failed to sell after a certain period of time, the contract would be cancelled and she wou ...

From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems

Morning Brew is one of my daily go-to blogs for a smile and a giggle to offset a look at the markets. Today they posted the following collection of good things people around the nation are doing to help those needing it during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hope it brings you a little cheer:






OPTIMISM

All week, Brew readers have been writing in with inspiring stories of people working together to help those affected by the pandemic. We compiled this list to a) make you smile and b) give you ideas about ways to mobilize your own community. 
Stephanie: “To keep a local florist afloat, members of my community are sending each other bouquets. Once you have a bouquet sent to you, you send a bouquet to another friend, and then they send a bouquet to someone else, and on and on.”

An economic stimulus worth considering.

By Vanessa Saunders Founder/CEO Global Property Systems (GPS)


Laura Castelli, Italy’s deputy economy minister, told an Italian radio station Tuesday that individuals and households will temporarily not be required to make mortgage payments, according to BBC. During the global economic crisis in 2010, the country also temporarily halted some loan payments.


Consider how this would benefit our slumping economy. A temporary moratorium on mortgages and rents for homeowners and renters would instantly put cash in the hands of most Americans without the government cutting a single check or mailing out one letter. Americans would have the cash to get our economy up and running as soon as the Coronavirus pandemic abates. 


There’s actually a precedent in the U.S. for Italy’s forbearance program, but here, it’s been more focused on victims of natural disasters like hurricanes and flooding.


So far, the president’s plans for economic stimulat ...
