Hardy Reed, LLC Named to 2019 Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers

TUPELO, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — June 30, 2019 – Hardy Reed is pleased to announce it has been named to the 2019 edition of the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.

This is the sixth annual FT 300 list, produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the asset management industry.

RIA firms applied for consideration, having met a minimum set of criteria. Applicants were then graded on six factors: assets under management (AUM); AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers; online accessibility; and compliance records. There are no fees or other considerations required of RIAs that apply for the FT 300.

The final FT 300 represents an impressive cohort of elite RIA firms, as the “average” practice in this year’s list has been in existence for over 22 years and manages $4.6 billion in assets. The FT 300 Top RIAs hail from 37 states.

The FT 300 is one in series of rankings of top advisers by the Financial Times, including the FT 401 (DC retirement plan advisers) and the FT 400 (broker-dealer advisers).

The FT 300 award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients. Awards and recognitions by unaffiliated publications should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that the client will experience a certain level of results; nor should they be construed as a current or past endorsement of the registered investment advisors or its representatives. Generally, ratings, rankings and recognition are based on information provided by the adviser.

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc. is Proud to Offer their RBID Tour of Home

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc. RBID Tour of Home

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Traditional open houses are sometimes uncomfortable for both buyers and sellers because you've often got a hovering agent watching your every move. Most importantly, they're NOT very effective at selling homes either. In fact, according to industry statistics, less than 1% of homes are sold as a result of a traditional open house. Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc., the real estate office with the proven track records in the Greater Los Angeles area, created a solution to solve this problem by launching their RBID Tour of Home.

Headed by their CEO, Rudy Lira Kusuma, the team designed the RBID Home Selling System to create a sense of urgency, excitement, and perception of value for the prospective buyers. One of the methods used for this system is the RBID Tour of Home, where the team brings in the pre-approved and pre-qualified buyers to see the property just within 30-minutes to 1-hour time frame in which multiple offers can be created during the tour. The team has more than 45,000 pre-approved buyers in their database that are ready, motivate, and willing to make offers on the properties.

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc. does not do the traditional method of an open house where the house is available for the public for the entire day and the listing agents only wait and hope for the potential buyers to come in. Statistics show that less than 1% of homes can be sold due to the traditional method of an open house.

Another purpose of their RBID Tour of Home is to gather all the pre-qualified and pre-approved buyers to line up in front of the properties and to create a sense of urgency for the public to view and also submit offers on the properties. This RBID Tour of Home offers a lot of benefits for the sellers where they can receive multiple offers within the short time period, their homes sold as-is, at the price acceptable to the sellers and within their time frame.

The RBID Homes also come with full disclosures of the property so that the buyers will have more confidence before submitting their offers. Mr. Kusuma of Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc. understands the needs of the clients. With that, they use the best approach for the convenience and satisfaction of their customers. They work with integrity and honesty because they want to maintain their solid reputation in the real estate industry.

About Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc.:

FPR Force notes Rental Markets Weaken in First Quarter 2019

Confidence in the Market for New Multifamily Housing Weakened in the First Quarter of 2019

ORLANDO, FL, USA, June 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Confidence in the market for new multifamily housing weakened in the first quarter of 2019, according to results from the Multifamily Market Survey (MMS) released last month by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The MMS produces two separate indices. The Multifamily Production Index (MPI) dropped seven points to 40 compared to the previous quarter, which is the lowest reading since the third quarter of 2010. Meanwhile, the Multifamily Vacancy Index (MVI) rose three points to 48, with higher numbers indicating more vacancies.

The MPI measures builder and developer sentiment about current conditions in the apartment and condo market on a scale of 0 to 100. The index and all of its components are scaled so that a number below 50 indicates that more respondents report conditions are getting worse than report conditions are improving.

FPR Force is a Florida-based bonded, licensed and insured Court Appointed Receiver. FPR Force offers a specialized Receivership program whereby we recover from the owner/first lien holder the entire delinquent balance, or rehab and occupy the property and pay the current and past due HOA/COA fees. Properties are managed, maintained and secured for FREE.

FPR Force’s cost-free Receivership program enables Associations to collect their monthly assessments on these properties up to the time the Lender finally completes foreclosure. FPR Force will file a Petition with the Court to gain appointment for Receivership. Upon appointment, FPR Force will rehab the properties, restoring them to code compliant and habitable condition, occupy the properties with vetted individuals, and make monthly payments to the Association to reduce their debt balance.

Many of these rehabbed and maintained Receivership properties will be sold to a third party, enabling the association to collect their entire delinquent balance, verses "safe harbor" they collect when the Bank takes title.
