Hello friends,

it’s already May and the year is flying by. If you haven’t been a regular at our Thursday morning breakfast meetings please make a point to do so.

This month our guest speakers include Corona Police Chief Mike Abel, and in June we have CAR VP and Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young, and local Real Estate Forecaster and Investor Bruce Norris.

Be sure and put June 2nd on your calendar as our Recreation Committee has a day trip to Harrah’s Rincon planned for our members with bus transportation, raffle drawings, and a whole lot more for one low ticket price.

Please check the TIGAR Website or call the office if you have any questions.

I’m having a great time serving as your 2017 President and look forward to the months ahead.

2017 TIGAR President

Education Corner

Well it’s that time of year again. Kids getting out of school, vacations, family and friends visiting, needing a place to sleep. So what do we do? We open our homes up to them. When in reality they’re just squatting wanting a free cook, maid and a bed. The summer can be very overwhelming! With the market picking up and having to entertain our families, friends, and clients, we must make sure we keep on top of our business and education!

Let’s make our lives just a little less stressful by getting our education out of they way, NOW! One thing we ALWAYS wait until the very last second is our 45 hours CE license renewal. The first thought is, "I just completed my hours," and yes your correct 4 years ago. Let's take advantage of our awesome board providing you renewal courses before all the summer chaos starts in June.

We also just had a great opportunity to brush up on our presentations. Most of us have the same thought “I have my presentations down, I don’t need to sit through a class when I’m closing listings and picking up buyers. What if you could learn just one word that could add one, two double or triple your conversions. Just think you could buy those shoes or spend some extra time with your family and friends.

Let’s make sure we use our board and get the education we need so next time someone wants to visit we can put them in a motel and buy those shoes that make others drool. TIGAR’s classes are timed perfect, while our kids are at school. Let’s see you at TIGAR

Remember education is ALWAYS part of our career!

Today I’m going to tell you a story. It’s an old story, but a great one. I’m going to start showing it to all my clients.

The Story of 100 Americans
Each expects to be financially successful by the age of 65. But government statistics indicate:

This was first used as an advertisement in 1919 by an insurance company. Social Security published a report a few years later that backed those figures up.

So, you may ask, has this changed? Well I can tell you it has.
Thanks to modern medicine, our life span has increased, so the number of dead is reduced. Awesome!!!That’s Great! I’m going to live longer! I had planned to make it to 70. Now I can retire and enjoy myself, travel with the family, buy expensive champagne. But wait…now I’m living 20 years longer than my retirement funds accounted for. How will I budget that? Pay for health insurance (assuming we still can get it)? Don’t tell me I have to give up Starbucks or Barnes & Noble!!

So the offset is we live longer, but because more than half of Americans did not or were not able to save, the figures for dependency and ‘still working’ category has increased. Most research shows that more than 50% of Americans cannot survive financially for more than 3 months!

But I have hope. Every article I glanced at indicates that in every age category people are becoming much more aware of their retirement needs and taking action. In particular, the millennials. An article in MONEY, shows that “the typical 20-something is now stashing away 7.5% of their income vs. 5.8% in 2013”. Yeah Millennials!
Have an awesome week everyone!
