LET'S JUMP RIGHT IN AND TALK ABOUT WHAT WE WILL COVER ON TODAY'S SHOW.

FIRST UP, INTERESTING ARTICLE THAT I SAW RECENTLY RANKING STATES.

THE HIGHEST TO LOWEST PERCENTAGE OF MILLIONAIRES.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO GO THROUGH THE TOP THREE STATES.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE STATES THAT HAVE THE LARGEST PERCENTAGE OF MILLIONAIRES IN THE STATE.

TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE REASONS FOR THAT, WHO THE WEALTHIEST PERSON IS AND WHO -- WE CAN TALK ABOUT MASSACHUSETTS AND RHODE ISLAND.

WE HAVE THESE GUYS BACK TO TALK ABOUT ALL THAT.

30 SEGMENT, SHIFTING GEARS OF LITTLE BIT.

TALKING ABOUT LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE.

THIS MAY NOT BE A TYPE OF COVERAGE YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH.

IF YOU ARE, YOU MAY BE FOLLOWING THIS COVERAGE IS GETTING MORE AND MORE EXPENSIVE.

SOMEONE -- SOME QUESTION IF IT WILL EVEN EXIST AND A COUPLE OF YEARS.

WE HAVE GOT A LOT TO GET THROUGH IN TODAY'S SHOW.

LET'S JUMP RIGHT IN.

LET'S TALK ABOUT STATES WITH THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF MILLIONAIRES.

ADJUSTING STATISTIC.

THIS WAS BASED ON AN ARTICLE AND NATIONWIDE, ONLY 5.

8% OF HOUSEHOLDS MEET THE MARK OF MILLIONAIRE.

THERE IS A PARTICULAR WAY OF FINDING WHAT A MILLIONAIRE IS, IT IS MORE EXCLUSIVE THAN YOU MIGHT IMAGINE.

THEY CALCULATE IT AS A NET WORTH IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF $1 MILLION OR MORE.

EXCLUDING REAL ESTATE OF YOUR PERSONAL RESIDENCE AS WELL AS YOUR RETIREMENT PLAN.

WHEN YOU TAKE THOSE THINGS OUT OF THE EQUATION, THAT IS GOING TO SHRINK THE LIST OF MILLIONAIRES.

THAT IS THE WAY KIPLINGER IN PARTICULAR LOOK AT IT.

THEY BROKE DOWN BY STATE CANNOT JUST LOOK AT WHAT STATES HAVE THE MOST MILLIONAIRES IN THEM, DON'T BE THE USUAL SUSPECTS.

CALIFORNIA, FLORIDA, NEW YORK.

WHAT THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF MILLIONAIRES WAS RELATIVE TO THE REST OF THE STATE.

I WANT TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU.

WE WILL TALK ABOUT EACH ONE OF THEM A LITTLE BIT INDIVIDUALLY.

FIRST UP, NUMBER THREE, NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBORS IN CONNECTICUT.

7.

75% OF THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT QUALIFY AS MILLIONAIRES.

1.

3 MILLION HOUSEHOLDS IN CONNECTICUT AND 107 THOUSAND OF THEM ARE MILLIONAIRES.

THAT IS THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE.

-- HAS A VERY HIGH PERCENTAGE OF HEDGE FUND INVESTING BUSINESSES.

AND THEN THE PEOPLE THAT RUN THEM LIVING IN THE STANFORD METRO AREA.

IS THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF MILLIONAIRES IN THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES.

STANFORD METRO AREA.

THE RICHEST PERSON IN CONNECTICUT IS THE HEDGE FUND MANAGER RAY DALIA.

HE IS WORTH $17.

4 BILLION.

HE IS THE RICHEST GUY IN CONNECTICUT.

ONE OF THE RICHEST PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY.

7.

4% MILLIONAIRES.

RHODE ISLAND, NOT AS FAR DOWN AS YOU MIGHT HAVE GUESSED.

ONLY NUMBER 16 ON THE LIST.

6.

22% OF THE STATE.

THAT IS A BREAKDOWN OF THE MILLIONAIRES.

UP NEXT, WE WILL BE TALKING OLIVER: WELCOME BACK.

JOINED NOW BY REAL ESTATE PROS.

THIS IS PART TWO OF A CONVERSATION WE STARTED SEVERAL WEEKS BACK ON THE CHALLENGES YOU MIGHT EXPERIENCE IF YOU DECIDE TO GO IN A FOR SALE BY OWNER SITUATION.

THIS OBVIOUSLY APPLIES MOSTLY TO THOSE THAT MIGHT BE CONSIDERING SELLING A PROPERTY.

IT ALSO COULD RELATE IF YOU'RE DEALING WITH ANOTHER PROPERTY IN A FOR SALE BYON.

IT CAN CREATE A NUMBER OF CHALLENGES.

BEFORE WE DO THAT, WE HAVE TO GET THE MARKET UPDATE.

I PAY ATTENTION KIND OF OUT OF THE CORNER OF MY EYE TO WHAT IS GOING ON IN REAL ESTATE.

MOSTLY LOCALLY.

SEEMS LIKE IT WAS A HECK OF A SUMMER.

IT WAS A HECK OF A SUMMER.

WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT SPRING, WAS PROBABLY THE BEST I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME.

SUMMER WAS FANTASTIC.

THE MARKET ALWAYS STAYS VERY BUSY.

WE HAVE BEEN TALKING PERIODICALLY ABOUT THE MARKET.

STARTED TO SLOW DOWN.

I THINK THE FIRST ONE WAS REALLY THE AMOUNT OF INVENTORY TO FIND BUYERS AND SELLERS MARKET.

INVENTORY RELATES TO IF NO OTHER HOME TO THE MARKET, HOW MANY MONTHS WOULD IT TAKE TO SELL THE HOMES FOR SALE.

2.

7 MONTHS OF INVENTORY.

A VERY STRONG SELLERS MARKET.

AT THE TIME WE ARE FILMING THIS, 4.

4 MONTHS.

IT IS STARTING TO BALANCE A BIT.

NO CARRIERRINGRINGCONNECT 19200+++6 C13 PRICES ARE 549% OVER LAST YEAR.

NUMBER OF SALES ARE DOWN 3.

3%.

IT HAS STAYED PRETTY EVEN.

THE SELLING MARK ON THE OTHER HAND, SALES OF 23%.

WE ARE SEEING MUCH MORE OF A BALANCE THEN WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT ALL SUMMER.

WE ARE STARTING TO SEE IT NOW AS WE HEAD INTO THE FALL.

OLIVER: AN INTERESTING TO STICK -- STATISTIC.

ONE OF THE THINGS YOU JUST MENTIONED.

THE INCREASE IN PRICE TALKED ABOUT CONDOS UP 15%.

SINGLE-FAMILY'S UP FIVE POINTS.

A SIGNIFICANT PRICE APPRECIATION AND RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE.

YEAR OVER YEAR.

THE ASSET ITSELF IS PERFORMING VERY WELL FROM AND INVEST IN STANDPOINT.

LOOKING BACK, THE PRICE IS OVER 5.

9%.

SALES RATES ARE GOING DOWN THREE-POINTER PERCENT.

-- 3.

3%3 IT IS NOT 2008.

THE SKY IS NOT FALLING.

WE ARE SEEING A LITTLE BIT OF A BALANCE.

IT IS IMPORTANT PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF THAT.

WE HAVE SOME A PEOPLE WHO IN THE SPRIN MONEYBALL -- NEIGHBOR SOLD FOR ASK.

THEY FLUCTUATE.

YOU REALLY HAVE TO WATCH , IT IS STARTING TO DIMINISH AND PRICE GOING UP.

THERE HAS TO BE A CHECKS AND BALANCE.

OLIVER: IT ALSO MUST STRESS BY SIGNIFICANTLY IN THE RANGE IN PRICES OF HOMES.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO TALK TO AN AGENT ABOUT EXACTLY WHERE YOU STAND DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF YEAR.

WHICH, I THINK, IS PROBABLY A GOOD JUMP OFF INTO HOW WE WANT RESPECT TO FOR SALE BY OWNER.

ONE OF THE CHALLENGES THAT, IF I WERE TO SUM MY HOME I WANT TO DO IT -- LET ME ASK YOU, HOW DO YOU GET BY SOMEONE ON THAT AND WHERE CAN SOMEONE GO WRONG? SAM: IT IS FUNNY YOU MENTION SPRING MARKET.

TYPICALLY, BUYERS AND SELLERS ROSE THINKING THAT THE SPRING MARKET IS A LOT STRONGER.

TYPICALLY, THERE IS A LOT MORE BUYERS OUT THERE.

FALL TIME, WINTERTIME, THOSE BUYERS ARE OUT THERE.

THEY'RE MUCH MORE SERIOUS.

THE BIGGEST THING AS A SELLER TO KEEP MIND IS THAT IN THE SPRINGTIME, EVERYONE IS WAITING FOR FLOWERS TO BROOM.

-- GLOOM.

GRASS TO BE GREEN.

IF YOU'RE THINKING SPRING MARKET IS BETTER, MY NEIGHBORS DOWN THE STREET BY THINKING SPRING MARKET IS BETTER, THERE IS A LOT MORE INVENTORY.

WITH THE INFLUX OF INVENTORY COME A LOT MORE COMPETITION.

AS A SELLER, YOU WANT TO MITIGATE THAT AS MUCH POSSIBLE.

IF I AM LOOKING TO GET INTO A NEIGHBORHOOD AS A BUYER, IF I CAN ONLY LOOK AT YOUR HOUSE, I MIGHT END UP BUYING YOUR HOUSE OR MIGHT NOT.

I MIGHT HAVE 3, 4, 5, 6 OTHER OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM.

OLIVER: IS THERE A PARTICULAR PRICE OF PROPERTY WHERE YOU SAY, IT IS UP TO THE SELLER, SOMETIMES LIFE SITUATIONS DICTATE THAT, CERTAIN PROPERTIES WHERE YOU WOULD SAY THIS WOULD BE A SPRING HOUSE OR THIS WOULD BE A FALL.

OR LET'S PUT THIS ON IN THE WINTER.

DO THINK ABOUT THOSE THINGS? ONE THING WE THINK ABOUT A LOT IS WATERFRONT HOMES.

THOSE HIGHER LUXURY HOMES THAT MAY BE NEED A LITTLE BIT OF WORK OR SOMETHING A BUYER WANTS TO COME IN AND MAKE THEIR OWN, IF THE SELLER IS ABLE TO SELL IN THE WINTER, BIO -- BUYER IS ABLE TO BUY IN THE WINTER, THEY HAVE THAT FOUR TO SIX MONTH.

TO DO THE RENOVATION.

THEY ARE IN THERE TO ENJOY THE WARMER MONTHS.

THE WATERFRONT HOMES, ESPECIALLY.

BEING ABLE TO SELL THEM IN THE WINTER IS MUCH MORE APPEALING FOR A BUYER.

A LOT OF THE BUYERS THAT ARE LOOKING IN THE COLDER MONTHS, THEY ARE MUCH MORE SERIOUS.

CHAD: -- OLIVER: ANOTHER THING I'M CURIOUS ABOUT IS MY EXPERIENCE IN LOOKING AT HOUSES HAS BEEN IT HAS GONE FROM THE PAPER AND FROM CIRCULAR.

I CAN'T EVEN READ ANYMORE.

I CLEARLY NEED GLASSES.

MY WIFE WOULD BE THE FIRST ONE TO TELL ME THAT.

I DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT PRINT PUBLICATIONS ANYMORE.

IT IS ABOUT GOING ONLINE.

HOW IMPORTANT HAS THE ABILITY TO PUT YOUR HOUSE ONLINE IN A GOOD LIGHT BECOME IN SELLING A PROPERTY? CHAD: THE DAYS OF NEWSPAPER MARKETING ARE OVER.

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET OFF A NEWSPAPER AND GO FIND A HOUSE.

SELLERS LOVE TO SEE THEIR HOME AND THOSE THINGS, BUT BUYERS ARE NOT LOOKING AT THOSE.

I AM LOOKING AT HOME AND A NEIGHBORHOOD COME I AM DRIVING THROUGH, I MIGHT JUST HAVE TO GO ON MY PHONE AND CHECK IT.

IF YOUR ONLINE, THAT IS WHAT DRIVES THE BUYERS THE CIRCLE HOMES.

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY.

STRONG WEB PLACEMENT.

IS YOUR AVERAGE BUYER DRIVING DOWN THE STREET GOING TO THE MAJOR SEARCH ENGINE? I WON'T USE THOSE NAMES BECAUSE WHEN WE READ THOSE COMPANIES LARGE CHECKS TO MAKE SURE OUR LISTING IS OVER THE TOP.

FROM AN ONLINE PERSPECTIVE IT IS A BIG DIFFERENTIAL BECAUSE ON THOSE BIG SITES, WHO IS GOING TO SEE IT? A FOR SALE SIGN ON THE END OF YOUR CUL-DE-SAC, WHOSE DRIVING BY THAT SIGN? TO ECHO WHAT YOU JUST SAID, I THINK ABOUT -- AND I AM CONTINUALLY LOOKING FOR REAL ESTATE, MY WIFE AND I THINK ABOUT DOWNSIZING.

WE WANT TO BE AWARE OF WHAT IS FOR SALE.

WE GO TO OUR I LIVING.

I SEE THE WEBSITE.

I GO TO OUR I LIVING.

I PUT IN MY PLACE RANGE AND I SCROLL THROUGH.

IF THAT HOUSE IS NOT LISTED IT IS NOT GOING TO SHOW UP.

I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO KNOW.

IF I DROVE BY AND SAW THE SIGN IN THE FRONT YARD I WOULD NOT BE AWARE OF IT.

CHAD: AS A CONSUMER SIDE OF MLS.

A GREAT SITE TO USE.

EVERYTHING IS REAL-TIME INFORMATION.

OLIVER: SO, AND, I THINK ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT THIS PICTURES, THE DETAILED DESCRIPTION, THE MERE FACT THAT IT APPEARS THERE, IF IT DID NOT APPEAR THERE, IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON MY RADAR.

ONCE YOU GET, THIS IS WHERE THINGS GET SCARY FOR ME.

ONCE YOU GET A BUYER, YOU ARE THE SELLER, AND ONCE YOU GET A BUYER, HOW IMPORTANT IS THE ROLE OF NEGOTIATING THE SALE OF THE REAL ESTATE? BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAVE A GREAT PROPERTY, YOU COULD GET LUCKY, RIGHT, YOU COULD FIND A BUYER, THAT, SORT OF, THAT IS THE END OF THE BEGINNING.

HOW IMPORTANT IS HAVING EXPERIENCE IN REAL ESTATE NEGOTIATION TO GET THE DEAL CLOSED FAIRLY LEGALLY, IN EVERY RESPECT? IT IS HUGE.

IT IS THE BIGGEST PART.

MAKE SURE YOU'RE ABLE TO MAXIMIZE ON YOUR INVESTMENT.

A LOT OF SELLERS MAY HAVE SOLD 1, 2, 3, FOUR HOMES IN THEIR LIFETIME, MAYBE WITH A REALTOR, MAYBE WITHOUT, THE BIGGEST THING TO KEEP IN MIND IS THAT YOU MIGHT BE GIVING AWAY VALUABLE INFORMATION WITHOUT REALIZING.

THE BIGGEST QUESTION THAT I ASK WHEN I'M LOOKING AT A FOR SALE BY OWNER, I TRIED TO BE A LITTLE BIT DISCREET.

I MAKE SURE THAT I AM ASKING , HYPOTHETICALLY, MY BUYER WANTS TO PUT AN OFFER IN.

?WITH THAT BE STRONG THEY SAY I THINK WE'RE GIVEN A GOOD CONSIDERATION.

THAT SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD.

I JUST CUT YOUR PRICE DOWN 45000 AND ONE QUESTION.

MY TOP OFFER IS GOING TO BE 375, I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE CLOSE TO 400.

LOTS OF VALUABLE INFORMATION.

A LOT OF INFORMATION COULD BE GIVEN FREELY WITHOUT REALIZING.

THE OTHER THING THAT WORRIES ME, WE TALKED ABOUT THE GETTING THINGS DONE LEGALLY OF, ONE OF THE EXPERIENCES -- ONE OF THE THINGS, NOT EXPERIENCES, THE THINGS I NOTICED WITH MY AGENT WHEN WE LOOK AT PROPERTIES IS ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS SHE TAKES A LOOK AT IS THE DISCLOSURES.

I DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.

SHE WILL BE FLIPPING THROUGH THEM.

SHE HAS TOLD ME SOME HORROR STORIES ABOUT PROBLEMS WITH DISCLOSURES.

HOW IMPORTANT ARE THE DISCLOSURES FOR THE BUYER AND SELLER? HOW CAN YOU GET IN TROUBLE IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING WITH THE LIST? THERE IS A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT DISCLOSURES.

78 IS THE DAY.

EVEN NORTH OF THE, NEW CONSTRUCTION, EVERYTHING REQUIRES DISCLOSURES.

EVERYTHING DOES.

EVEN IF YOU HAVE NOT -- NO KNOWLEDGE YOU JUST CHECK NO KNOWLEDGE.

IF YOU PUT SOMETHING AS A SELLER ON YOUR DISCLOSURE FORM, IF YOU KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG, YOU NEED TO TELL THE BUYER.

THE VEHICLE TO DELIVER THAT INFORMATION.

OLIVER: YOU ARE OBLIGATED, YOU HAVE A LEGAL OBLIGATION.

YOU CAN'T ESCAPE YOUR MOUTH SHUT ABOUT IT.

YOU HAVE TO REVEAL THOSE THINGS.

CHAD: AS A SELLER YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND THOSE DOCUMENTS.

YOU KNOW THEY ARE REQUIRED.

SOME PEOPLE DO.

MOST DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

OLIVER: HOW IMPORTANT TO DO YOU FIND IS KNOWING THE AGENT THAT YOU ARE DEALING WITH? WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING AT A HOUSE OR NEGOTIATING A DEAL.

CHAD: DRIVING ON THE WAY HERE TO SEE YOU ONE OF THE AGENTS I DO TONS OF DEALS WITH CALLED AND ASKED ABOUT A HOUSE -- HOUSE THAT WE HAD TAKEN OFF THE MARKET.

JUST WANTED TO HAVE AN HONEST CONVERSATION.

HE IS A GOOD AGENT.

IF HE IS GOING TO HAVE A GOOD AGENT THAN HE IS A GUY OUT OF THE TIME AND HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH.

HE WILL PRODUCE A READY, WILLING, AND ABLE BUYER.

OLIVER: WE HAVE FAILED TO COVER EVERYTHING WE WANT TO COVER.

WE DEFINITELY REVEALED A LOT MORE ISSUES THAT CAN COME UP WITH FOR SALE BY OWNER.

I DON'T THINK ANYBODY SAYS DEFINITELY DON'T DO IT.

WE HAVE TO CONSIDER A LOT OF THINGS THAT MAYBE PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE OF.

GLAD YOU ARE HERE TO TALK WITH US ABOUT THAT.

UP NEXT, SHIFTING GEARS TO TALK ABOUT LONG-TERM -- STAY WITH US.

OLIVER: THE FUTURE OF LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE MARKET, IF YOU'RE IN RETIREMENT THIS IS THE TYPE OF COVERAGE YOU HAVE CONSIDERED WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE ACTUALLY TAKEN IT OUT OR NOT.

ONE TERM CARE INSURANCE MARKET ENTROPY RELATIONS.

OF TRIALS I WANT TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THAT.

THIS SUMMER, POLITEST WRITER OF LTC POLICIES IN THE COUNTRY, RECEIVED AN APPROVAL FROM REGULAT DIFFERENT STATES TO RAISE PREMIUMS.

IT IS IMPAS IT IS A TERM THAT -- IT IS NOT LIKE TERM LIFE INSURANCE WITH -- ARE GUARANTEED.

LONGTIME INTEREST RATES CAN GO UP IF THE REGULATORS IN YOUR STATE APPROVE THE INCREASE.

KIND OF LIKE UTILITY BILLS LIKE GAS OR ELECTRIC.

JEN WERTH HAS RAISED PREMIUMS IN EACH OF THE LAST TWO YEA THEY CLAIM TO HAVE LOST NEARLY $3 BILLION ON THEIR OLDER LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE POLICIES FOR WHICH THEY ARE RAISING THESE PREMIUMS.

THEY SAY WE HAVE TO RAISE THESE PREMIUMS ON OUR INSURANCE.

JOHN HANCOCK, ANOTHER LONG TERM INSURANCE CARE STOP WRITING POLICIES ENTIRELY LAST YE& PRUDENTIAL, ANOTHER GIANT COMPANY LEFT THE MARKET ALTOGETHER IN 2012.

THE NUMBER OF CARRIERS THAT ARE WRITING THIS COVERAGE IS SHANKING RAPIDLY.

AND THE COST OF THIS COVERAGE IS GOING UP QUICKLY.

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE? LET'S TAKE A LOOK QUICKLY AT EACH OF THESE ISSUES.

THE FIRST THING IS LOW INTEREST RATE ENVIRONMENT.

INSURANCE COMPANIES MAKE THEIR MONEY ON FLOW, NOT ON BANKS OR DO YOU PAY.

-- PREMIUMS A GOES INTO THEIR GENERAL FUND.

WHAT THEY WILL PROFIT ON IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT THEY PUT IN AND WHAT THEY PAY OUT.

AND THEY TACK ON THE INTEREST.

IN A LOW INTEREST RATE ENVIRONMENT, THEY ARE NOT MAKING AS MUCH MONEY.

NUMBER TWO, POLICYHOLDERS ARE LIVING LONGER.

THIS IS A BIG CHALLENGE FROM LONGER INSURANCE COMPANY COVERAGE.

PEOPLE ARE LIVING LONGER, THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO DEMAND LONG-TERM CARE SERVICES.

OR REQUIRE LONG-TERM CARE SERVICES.

WHEN THEY DO REQUIRE THE SERVICES, THEY REQUIRE THEM FOR A LONGER TIME.

FINALLY, POOR ACTUARIAL DATA.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS ONE.

LONG-TE CARE INSURANCE MARKET IS RELATIVELY IMMATURE MARKET WHEN COMPARED TO AUTO, HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE, OR CERTAINLY, LIFE INSURANCE.

IT LACKS THE ACTUARIAL DATA THAT INSURANCE COMPANIES DEPEND ON TO ACCURATELY PRICE THESE POLICIES.

PRODUCTS WERE FIRST DEVELOPED, I'M GOING TO SAY THAT WAS ESSENTIALLY IN THE 1970'S WHEN THE MODERN LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE CAME OUT.

SOMEBODY MAY WANT TO CORRECT ME ON THAT.

INSURANCE COMPANIES DID NOT HAVE GREAT INFORMATION ON HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO REQUIRE COVERAGE.

HOW EXPENSIVE WAS THAT COVERED GOING TO BE.

HOW LONG WERE THEY GOING TO BE A NURSING HOME.

ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

THEY BASICALLY HAD TO MAKE GUESSES.

INSURANCE COMPANIES TO MAKE GUESSES.

THEY LIKE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE DATA WILL TELL THEM.

ON THE INSURANCE THEY HAVE VERY GOOD INFORMATION ABOUT MORTALITY RATES.

LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE, THE DON'T HAVE NEARLY AS GOOD INFORMATION.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR RETIREES WHO ARE FACING LONG-TERM CARE NO CARRIERRINGRINGCONNECT 19200+++6 C13 EXTENDED STAY IN A NURSING HOME? YOU HAVE A FEW CHOICES.

IF YOU HAVE LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE YOU CAN ACCEPT GREAT CHANGE IT -- THE -- RATE CHANCES.

YOU CAN LOOK AT ADJUSTING COVERAGES, DROPPING COVERAGES, THIS IS SOMETHING I SEE MY CLIENTS FACING PRICKLY.

THEY PURCHASE LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE SEVERAL YEARS AGO, NOW THEY'RE HAVING TO GO BACK AND VISIT IT.

DROP BENEFITS.

MODIFY COVERAGE.

YOU CAN SKIP BUYING LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE ALTOGETHER.

I AM NOT RECOMMENDING IT NEARLY AS OFTEN AS I USED TO.

VERILY -- VERY LIMITED SCENARIOS WHERE I'M RECOMMENDING TRADITIONAL LONG-TERM CARE.

A FINAL RECOMMENDATION, THIS MAY BE THE THING THAT HAPPENS GOING FORWARD, HYBRID LIFE INSURANCE LONG-TERM CARE POLICIES.

THE JURY IS STILL OUT ON THOSE.

A LOT OF TURMOIL IN THE INDUSTRY.

OLIVER: LOOK UP MONEY PROS AND POST A QUESTION THERE.

Cash For Homes

hey everyone today I want to talk aboutfor Sale By Owner when people decide that they want to go ahead and selltheir house on their own and I'm gonna give you nine reasons why you need toreconsider this number reason number one is leaving money on the table you know alot of guys a lot of you guys out there that are considering selling on your ownare doing it because you want to save on Commission but the National Associationof Realtors has come up with a statistic that's very powerful and and that isthat when they look at the homes that have sold that have sold with Realtorsthe average home sale price is 240,000 when they look I'm sorry forty ninethousand when they look at the homes that were sold by owner there are ahundred and ninety thousand that's that's the significant difference sotoday that being the reason number one I'm gonna talk about the other reasonswhy you should have you know consider you know going through a realtor and andthe reasons why and those are really the reasons why you're gonna end up sellingyour home for less if you try to do it on your own so number one of course isleaving money on the table number two is having a marketingstrategy what that means is having a pricing strategy what is your market inyour neighborhood in your particular town it might be very different thansomething you know that's going on across the town we call that a micromarket so what you want to do is you have your will to really evaluate youknow what kind of market and who are you marketing to maybe you have maybe yourprice point is really for first-time homebuyers who are first-time homebuyerswell you're probably looking at a younger crowd millenials come to mindand really looking at the ways they like to communicate if you have a home thatmaybe is an older home larger home and you know likely you're gonna target moveup buyers so they might be a little bit older and certainly they might be moreapt to you know communicate via Facebook so those are different things that youwant to look at different channels as far as marketing but price point is veryimportant and of course you know miss pricing a house is a whole nother issueso that's number two and then of course you know then once you have yourmarketing strategy in place you're going to want to have a marketing plan toimplement and that plan might include mailingsopen houses which by the way guys I'm gonna tell you I have sold homes doingopen houses so don't let anyone tell you that doesn't work they have to be donethe right way and also you know promoting your home via you knowdifferent online channels so that would be that would be my third the fourthwould be once once you have a buyer coming around you get an offer what doesthat mean or are they a good buyer I mean what I mean today they actually canget the financing a lot of times you know as Realtors we we can get a goodidea as to whether or not their financing is is strong you know callingtheir lender finding out understanding the different types of financingprograms out there you know what what they mean for you as a seller you knowcuz certainly you want to make sure you know even if it's a cash offer do theyreally have the funds I've heard plenty of time a cash offers falling throughbecause there's no funding there or the funding is you know just not there andthen and then the fifth one would be you know once so once you get the offer andnow you better negotiate the contract negotiating the contract and all of thedifferent not just looking at the lender but you know what does that mean whenthey um they say you have to pay for the you know the home warranty what if theyslide in a little something you know about hey you know you're responsiblefor the HOA dogs for the certs which can cost several hundred dollars you knowthere's just a lot of different parts of the contract that you need to be awareof that are that do come into play when you're negotiating and then once you'renegotiated the contract it's not over so you know you might be thinking I've doneit I've negotiated it I've got a good deal and now they're gonna come in andthey're gonna do the inspections and all of a sudden you get this report that youknow maybe you don't get the whole inspection report but you get a list ofrequests that include items such as you know it just not up to code well doesthat what does that mean does that mean you shouldpay for that is that your responsibility you know things like that so so sothat's that's that's the next thing and then you also want to look at so oncethe once the inspections have been negotiated now you gotta wait for theappraisal to come back because they financed it there's definitely gonna bean appraisal involved and looking at that appraisal and just really let's sayit comes in lower okay then that means you're gonna be renegotiating and whatdoes that mean does that mean you just back out and you put your house back onthe market will other buyers be able to buy your house without having to come upwith the extra cash because once it's appraised chances are you know you'renot gonna be and if it's an FHA forget you know forget about it you're I meanyou're gonna be tied to a certain number so you have to really think about thatand know what you're doing is the seller and then once that's done now you're youyou need to check on the lender and make sure that the loan is actually gonnahappen and that's also in the contract so that's been negotiated so once thatso now you can so now you've negotiated you've gotten through the the optionperiod you've gotten through the appraisal and so there's a buyers walkthrough well what happens if something goes wrong what do you do you don't wantthe closing to not happen because you know a pipe burst or the garage door wasbroken or somebody drove through the house I mean these are things thathappen so you need to and they have happen so you need to have somebodywho's prepared and able to help you when something like that goes wrong so youknow these are these are all the things to consider so let me kind of go throughthem again it's gonna be one you know mark not leaving money on the table to amarketing strategy three marketing implementation of your marketing planfor evaluating the the offer five negotiating the contract six would berenegotiating the inspections seven would be the appraisaland eight would be the buyer walkthrough and then the final one would be theclosing making sure that everything is happening like it should in the closingso those are kind of my tips and I hope they help you and I'm looking forward tothe next time I get to give you guys some you know information if there'sanything else you'd like me to cover if you have any questions please feel freeto like me or comment below and I look forward to the next time.
