Today in southern Florida, 2 more real estate professionals robbed when meeting folks at a vacant property. At minimum, give your family and loved ones a key chain pepper spray.

What Do You Carry? (pepper spray, taser, pistole’, or BFH)

Personal Safety Security 45 min audio mp3

Earlier today, a Realtor was found dead in a shallow grave after an intensive 3 or 4 day search for her upon finding her car with purse and cell phone, sitting in the driveway of a house for sale. The Realtor had told her husband she was going to show a house to a buyer and was never seen again.

Mike Butler shared his law enforcement background tips for not only your personal safety and security, but also for all of your contractors and especially your loved ones.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A parolee accused of abducting and killing a top-selling Arkansas real estate agent had contacted her to set up an appointment to view a vacant house, authorities said Tuesday, hours after discovering the woman’s body in a shallow grave at a concrete company.

Police found Beverly Carter’s body early Tuesday, five days after she went to show the house in a rural area near Little Rock and never returned. Authorities arrested Arron Michael Lewis, 33, on Monday on suspicion of kidnapping, and preliminary charges of capital murder and robbery were added after Carter’s body was found buried at a business where Lewis previously worked.

Lewis, who was on parole for theft convictions, pleaded not guilty to the preliminary charges and remained in the Pulaski County jail Tuesday without bond. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had an attorney, though Lewis told reporters Tuesday while he was being taken to be questioned by authorities that he did not kill Carter.

When asked why Carter was targeted, Lewis responded: “Because she was just a woman that worked alone — a rich broker.”

Pulaski County Sheriff’s Capt. Simon Haynes wouldn’t say how the 49-year-old Carter was killed or why, but described her as “a target of opportunity” for Lewis. He said Lewis scheduled the appointment to see the home in Scott, about 15 miles east of Little Rock, but wouldn’t say how Lewis learned that Carter was a real estate agent.

Haynes and Pulaski County Sheriff Doc Holladay also wouldn’t say what linked Lewis to the crime.

Prosecutor Larry Jegley said his office is still reviewing the case and that it’s too soon to say whether he would seek the death penalty against Lewis.

“Events like this stain the soul of our community,” Jegley said. “They leave scars, and we know that. And we also know that many of y’all are wanting answers that simply can’t be given at this time.”

Friends, family members and fellow real estate agents joined the search for Carter throughout the weekend. On Tuesday, many of them attended a news conference, wearing red shirts to honor the mother and grandmother.

“If you had a sweet scale, it was Beverly, and then there was sugar, and then there was other sweeteners. That’s how sweet she was,” said David Goldstein, a real estate broker who worked with Carter for more than 10 years. “Now, she was pretty feisty too. In her professional life, if you were being protected by her as a Realtor, if you were her client, that sweet had some teeth.”

Odds are, if you are in the residential rental property world, you have heard or know an investor who has been scammed by one of the internet dirt-bags.

This is nothing new. Remember the online scam where the victim is sent an email from who knows where, reporting they have won or inherited a billion dollars? But in order to claim it, the victim must pay for the processing fees and government stamps, etc.

You and I both say “there’s no way anyone with any sense would fall for this.” But Guess What? It is still happening every day with normal folks. These scammers would NOT be doing this if it did not work.

Here is how I know it is still happening and the scammers are still getting money from victims. My banker told me just a few weeks ago, he gets one or two customers a week who want to wire money to these scammers. Unbelievable. The scams continue.

Even as a retired Louisville Police detective, I have been scammed on several of my rentals. Let me share with you how it works.

The scammer surfs the internet for houses for rent. They find an unlimited supply of homes for rent on various websites from www.VistaKY.com, www.TenantFinderService.com, www.RentalHouses.com, www.Zillow.com, www.Craigslist.org and many more.

They find your rental house to target. The address is 123 Main St., Louisville, Ky 40207. It’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with finished basement and 2 car attached garage. The rent for this home is $1200.

Here is what usually happens in this rental property scam.

STEP 1: After finding your target property, they download your all of your photos and details about this property from the online source they viewed. Think about this for a moment. The scammer has everything you have entered on the internet for the public to view. PLUS, most of the time they can use Google Maps to drive down the street, see what is on the corner (Walgreen’s, McD’s, etc) and the scammer can describe your rental and the neighborhood in great detail.

STEP 2: The scammer enters ALL of the information on your rental by “Stealing and Pasting” into a CraigsList.com Ad or any other website allowing investors to enter rental properties for free. The scammer lists the rent for your home at $899 which is a bargain for your rental home.

STEP 3: The Scammer’s ad will always have some kind of B.S. story about them being an “Out of Town Owner.” Some times they request a deposit up front and they will give them the key to see the home after receiving their money. They also inform the interested potential tenant that they have hired a local company to help get it rented and you might see their sign in the yard. Scammer tells them he is not satisfied with their service and he just decided to rent it himself or herself.

STEP 4: Unfortunately, many times the applicants actually send  money to the scammers and wait for the key to the house. After receiving no response, these folks then call the number on the yard sign and complain to the real owner (YOU) they want their money back. Don’t laugh, this is true.

You are totally blind-sided when you get this call. You are furious, ticked off, and want to find out exactly what is going on with your rental. Your jaw drops and you want to do something, take action now to stop it now.

What Can You Really Do? Think about it. Can you call the police? OK, what will the police do after hearing your story. First of all, you are NOT the victim. Your potential applicants are the victim. Who is going to pay for this? Who will get locked up and go to jail? Good Luck!

So what is a poor investor to do?

Here is your Best Tool To Prevent Your Leads from Being Scammed. It is simple and easy.

Your solution is shown below. Get some bright neon yellow paper and print.

Print 2 or 3 copies and place several on the inside of the front windows of your vacant rental and I promise, this will definitely get the attention of your prospective applicants.

Good evening!  while watching this Louisville vs. Notre Dame basketball
overtime bonanza. 5th Overtime… wow   and i checked my email real quick and got this…

I was skeptical at first, but this is absolutely true. One of my friends sent me this link to Adobe and I just downloaded a boatload of Adobe Products without paying one red cent.

Plus I got the product key codes, (serial numbers) for each software

Here is the Link, click on it now. It is an Adobe webpage
—————————————————————————————-
http://www.adobe.com/downloads/cs2_downloads/index.html <– Click Here
   (copy and paste in browser)
—————————————————————————————

Now I’ll be 100% transparent and say this…

I’m not sure if they (Adobe) meant for everyone to be able to download these products from their page, or just SOME people (like people who already bought a copy)…

.. but the page IS still up, and I’m sure 1,000’s of people are visiting that page every week and downloading their CS2 versions.

Adobe MIGHT be doing this to fight all the pirated copies of Photoshop on the market… it might be their way to introduce more people to Photoshop via an older but legal version (CS2)… and perhaps these people will later upgrade to CS5 or CS6.

I can’t say for sure if that page is for everyone or not, but that page IS still up at this link:

http://www.adobe.com/downloads/cs2_downloads/index.html

You might want to look into this yourself a little more… I’m just passing on the news I heard since so many people on my list don’t have Photoshop or these other programs.

Yes, these are older versions, but they still do about 90% of the newer versions.

Forward this to your friends while the getting is good.

Mike Butler

“Adobe has disabled the activation server for CS2 products, including
Acrobat 7, because of a technical issue. These products were released
more than seven years ago, do not run on many modern operating
systems, and are no longer supported.

Adobe strongly advises against running unsupported and outdated
software. The serial numbers below should only be used by customers
who legitimately purchased CS2 or Acrobat 7 and need to maintain their
current use of these products”

More Americans are renting houses instead of buying them, a trend that could disrupt price affordability, analysts say.

With more homeowners unable to secure mortgages and uncertain about future finances, renting is the only sure-fire way to live in a single-family property, according to Capital Economics.

But as more Americans turn to home renting, the influx of demand is set to squeeze the nation’s rental supply, pushing monthly rents even higher.

“As a consequence of Americans being less willing and less able to buy a home, the number of households in rented accommodation is set to rise by at least 850,000 a year over the next few years,” said Paul Dales, senior economist with Capital Economics.

Dales’s said in his research that rental vacancy rates will fall again in the future, pushing prices up.

The median rent is already up to $712 per month—well above the average monthly mortgage cost of $647, Dales reported.

He estimates vacancies in the home-rental market will push average rental rates up as much as 5% by early 2013, compared to 2.4% in January.

“We expect the annual rate at which rents are rising will rise to 3% this year and remain at that level in 2013,” Dales said. “Assuming that the economic recovery gains firmer footing, in future years there is scope for rents to rise by around 4% a year.”

And as single-family renters head into the market, the supply of rentals is unlikely to meet new demand.

This reality is playing itself out in Denver, where the vacancy rate for home rentals fell from 3.4% in the third quarter to 2.1% in the fourth quarter. At the same time, the vacancy rate edged up slightly from the 2% level reported in the fourth quarter of 2010.

“The vacancy rate went up slightly year-over-year,” said Ryan McMaken, a spokesman for the Colorado Division of Housing. “That doesn’t mean much, though, because when you’re looking at vacancy rates below 3%, the bottom line is that the market is tight. For many people, it’s not easy to buy a house right now, so they’re renting.”

I Could Not Believe It.

Is This Really True?

It Is In The Planning Stages Now

The Federal Transaction Tax!

President Obama’s finance team and Nancy Pelosi are recommending a 1% transaction tax on all financial transactions.

It is true.

The bill is HR-4646 introduced by US Rep Peter deFazio D-Oregon and US Senator Tom Harkin D-Iowa.

Their plan is to sneak it in after the November election to keep it under the radar.
See what Nancy has to say about this wonderful idea!  http://tinyurl.com/24dn5ud

It’s only 1%! This is a 1% tax on all transactions to or from any financial institution i.e. Banks, Credit Unions, Mutual funds, Brokers, etc.

Any deposit you make will have a 1% tax charged.

Any withdrawal you make, 1% tax.

Any transfer within your account, a transfer to or from savings and checking, will have a 1% tax charged.

Any ATM transaction, withdrawal or deposit, 1% tax.

If your pay check or your Social Security is direct deposited, 1% tax.

If you carry a check to your bank to deposit, 1% tax.

If you take cash in to deposit, 1% tax.

If you receive any income from a bond or a dividend from stock, 1% tax.

Any Real Estate Transaction, 1% tax.

This is from the man who promised that if you make under $250,000 per year, you will not see one penny of new tax! Remember, he is completely honest and trustworthy.
Keep your eyes and ears open.

Folks, Nancy says this would be a minimal tax on the people, but 1 percent every time you pay a bill or make a deposit is not minimal. This would no doubt tax investment transactions as well as bank account transactions.
