Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Buy a Ranch vs. Building From Scratch?

On today’s show, Paul discusses the differences between buying an existing ranch, or starting from scratch and building your own.

Paul tells us about the advantages, and disadvantages, in both.  If you purchase an existing ranch, you can imagine that there are quite a few things that are already built and ready – such as a barn, guest house, animal structures, corrals, orchards, etc. But what you might not realize is that there are other very important things in place, as well – such as underground water, natural gas, and electricity.

The alternative to this, is building a ranch from scratch – purchasing vacant land, designing the ranch of your dreams, and putting it together.  This will appeal to some folks who are very particular and have the time, and the means, to see their vision through to fruition – but there is a lot to consider!

Paul shares a great story about a recent client who was looking at ranch land, both small (5 to 10 acre range), and large (over 100 acres).  His client wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted, so Paul helped him narrow down his wants & needs, and gave him the pros & cons of buying an existing ranch, as well as starting from scratch.

Tune in and hear some valuable information that will help you make an informed real estate decision!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Running an Airbnb

In this fun and fascinating show, Paul Ward talks about the pros and cons of renting, running or using an Airbnb. The upside may be making extra money, getting to know people all over the world, and getting to use your property in a unique way, but you need to know the potential downsides as well.

Tune in as Paul shares his vast knowledge to help his clients be fully informed and prepared!

What is an Airbnb?

Airbnb is an online marketplace that connects people who want to rent out their homes with people who are looking for accommodations in that locale. … For hosts, participating in Airbnb is a way to earn some income from their property, but with the risk that the guest might do damage to it.

A major difference between B&Bs and AirBnB is the on-site staff. Hosts will greet you as you arrive at a B&B. They’ll show you around the property so that you know what’s available during the stay. Hosts escort you to your room, and they’ll allow you to explore the property.  With Airbnb, the communication is done ahead of time and when you arrive all you have to do is enjoy your stay.

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Buying and Selling with Unpermitted structures

Welcome to this week’s Farm Talk with Paul Ward.
Today, Paul talks about buying and selling with unpermitted structures. He related an experience he had with a former seller who had an incredible property – a beautiful Spanish Style home on 5 acres with a beautiful view, tennis court, swimming pool, guest house and all the bells and whistles. Also included were 16 garages and a guest house. That’s correct – 16 garages! However, it turned out that 8 of the garages and the guest house were constructed without building permits.
What would you do if you wanted to buy or sell the property?
Important questions you should ask:
1. If you already have property and are considering building or expanding, should you pull permits of not?
2. If you have fallen in love with the property that you are thinking about buying, should you buy that property it has unpermItted  structures?
WHAT it was surprising to learn that that the law about permit use did not ‘kick in’ until 1946. Anything that was constructed before that time is considered ‘grandfathered’ in.
Now, Paul has been asked to sell another property, which was built to code, without permits.
How is Paul going to handle it?
What is he going to tell his potential buyers?
What would YOU do in this situation?
Tune in and learn more!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Maximizing your budget when selling a home!

In today’s Farm Talk, Paul has some very valuable tips on maximizing your budget when getting your home ready to sell. Paul shares a real case scenario about a home he is planning to list, and what challenges he & the current owners are facing in the process of getting the property ready for listing.  Paul tells us about the good, and the not-so-good aspects of the property, and answers the question: what really needs to be done before selling?  Obviously, a seller doesn’t want to spend money, if they don’t have to, but remember: You only get one chance to make a great first impression.

Paul starts with a list of what is non-negotiable.  First off, anything that is FREE, is non-negotiable – in other words, picking up personal items and putting things away is free and NEEDS TO BE DONE.  Also pruning dead flowers & plants needs to be done.  And there’s more!  This is an excellent show that is full of great info & advice.
