Why do women undervalue themselves and their services more than men?   The research suggests that some, not all women in the workplace  tend to undervalue their services more than the opposite sex.  This situation  often referred to as the “gender gap” is apparent in many verticals besides business. Women athletes, as an example have historically not been compensated like their male counterparts.  There are several factors that impact women in the workplace  like media coverage, sponsorship opportunities and the higher returns on revenue generally generated by men in sports.  We know it is evident in team sports like basketball and soccer, but there are exceptions especially in the world of tennis.  It may take time before equality is evident in getting pai, but for this post, the tips include the “how” not just the “why” on what we can do to improve the compensation we provide.  Here are some ways…

If you were to look up the term “post-mortem” in the dictionary, you would find a medical-based definition first and foremost.  Medically speaking, it is, as a post-mortem is a way to essentially find out what went wrong with a human being. But as I have discussed in previous blogs, post-mortems are just as commonly applied to failed business ventures, products, services, and corporate processes alike. Post-mortems are useful in the many different applications they are conducted in because they allow for the identification of a problem and how to better prevent them from occurring in the future. Specific to business, post-mortems allow leaders and managers to identify where a product, system, or service failed, where budget was exceeded, and any other issues that occurred along the way.
Of course, the issue with post-mortems in business is that they occur after the fact, after a product has already failed, or,…

The Mortgage Bankers Association said that purchase loan applications were down 10% last week. While I don’t contest that those are the numbers reported back to them, the numbers reporting back to me from my clients around the country, is that applications, along with contracts, and requests for preapprovals continues to climb. In some cases, dramatically! Granted I have a much smaller sample size, companies and branches in Florida, Texas, Arizona, Washington. Indiana, and Colorado are my only contributors, however, ALL are showing growth in activity. So maybe it’s just a fluke, or maybe it’s too small a sample? Could be those are just really active areas, sure, but all I know is that people who are committed to working are seeing solid results! Either way, there is business out there to be done and you need to get out and get in front of it. Even if that means…

Redfin reports 30% of 25-year olds owned their home in 2022, higher than the 27% rate for Gen Xers when they were the same age Nearly one-third (30%) of 25-year-olds owned their home in 2022, according to a new report from Redfin (redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage. That’s slightly higher than homeownership rates for millennials (28%) and Gen Xers (27%) when they were 25, and slightly lower than the rate for baby boomers (32%) when they were 25. Some Gen Zers were able to take advantage of record-low mortgage rates in 2020 and 2021 to buy homes, putting the generation on a slightly better homeownership trajectory than their parents. But those who didn’t buy homes during that period may struggle to break into the market now that housing costs have shot up, and the economy is showing signs of slowing.
Gen Zers tracking along with their parents’…

Investors are selling at a loss as elevated mortgage rates curtail homebuyer demand Roughly one of every seven (13.5%) U.S. homes sold by an investor in March sold for less than the investor bought it for, according to a new report from Redfin (redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage. That’s comparable with February’s 14.5% rate—the highest since 2016. It’s also nearly triple the share of a year earlier and compares with a record low of 2.8% in May. By comparison, 4.8% of overall U.S. homes that sold in March sold at a loss. This is according to a Redfin analysis of county records and MLS data across 40 of the most populous U.S. metropolitan areas. Redfin defines an investor as any institution or business that purchases residential real estate, including both large companies and mom-and-pop investors.
While most housing investors still reaped gains, those gains have shrunk. The…

Existing-home sales edged lower in March, according to the National Association of Realtors®. Month-over-month sales declined in three out of four major U.S. regions, while sales in the Northeast remained steady. All regions posted year-over-year decreases. Total existing-home sales,[i] https://www.nar.realtor/existing-home-sales – completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops – fell 2.4% from February to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.44 million in March. Year-over-year, sales waned 22.0% (down from 5.69 million in March 2022). “Home sales are trying to recover and are highly sensitive to changes in mortgage rates,” said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “Yet, at the same time, multiple offers on starter homes are quite common, implying more supply is needed to fully satisfy demand. It’s a unique housing market.”
Total housing inventory[ii] registered at the end of March was 980,000 units, up 1.0% from February and 5.4% from one year ago…
