Hi everybody my name is Lance Mohr and I’m a real estate agent here in Tampa, Florida and I wanted to go over this overview on my website Tampa2enjoy because I’ve put my 20 plus years in this industry into this website and it is not just for people who are going to be moving to Tampa though there are certain aspects of it that are just for people who are going to be living in the area but whether you are living in other parts of Florida or even in the country there’s a lot of really, really valuable information and a lot of things you could find on this website. The reason why I did it like this and structured it to be so educational in all areas is because when my wife and I moved out of Texas, Dallas in 2005 and we got to Florida it just seemed like all of the websites were the same; no one could give us any information or tell us anything so what I wanted to do is I wanted to build a website that could answer about 99% of everybody’s questions, not just my questions or your questions but everybody’s questions. Let me just go over this and I will tell you this, if you look at this website and you start actually using it you are going to find a ton of valuable resources on it that you just will not find anywhere else because I have done a lot of the searching and everything for you and I have spent hours, weeks, and months looking for stuff so you don’t have to.
I just think we are in an information society and you need to give people not only information but correct and accurate information. So let me just go through this and I’m not going to spend too much time on each one of these because I don’t want this to be a very long video but we will just start off right here under area information. The first is the crime reports. I think this is just…I will take you to the page right here this in my opinion is just a great company. I spent weeks looking for all of the different ones and playing around with them. What is really nice about this right here…you can go in and enter a city, you can move the map around, zoom and zoom out, if you are looking at a specific home just enter the address right here and it is going to take you to all of the crime and you can look at it and you can see there are little dropdowns for different…to enter homicides or what you want to do or if you want sexual offence, assaults, or offenses or whatever. There’s a ton of stuff. Right here you can do date ranges; there’s a whole bunch of information. This right here you just click on it and as you can see it pops up and says auto burglary and gives the date. It just happened less than one week ago. I think by default they are all about within the week. Again you can zoom in and zoom out and check that out but that is a really good website I think when it comes to crime. I lot of people want to know crime when they are moving in the area. The other is school information. The school information is more the county school information whether you are in Hillsborough, Pasco, or Pinellas County the school reports and profiles are more of an independent company; a site with different profiles and independent reports of schools. The lifestyle search right here I wish I had this and wish it was around when we moved here because this was really important to me. This is what it is right here; my wife and I when we moved to Tampa it was really important to me to have a health club around me and to know where the different health clubs are, churches, etc. This is really good. It defaults on the homes for sale page right here but I don’t use their homes for sale because it is in my opinion pretty much junk. Just click on the lifestyles search right here and you can see you just turn it on and you can go to schools. You can search by schools, worship centers, fitness centers, golf courses, and what it will do, I’ll just do this really quickly on fitness; just put a little dot right there and you can see they all pop up right here. Now keep in mind some of this information you are seeing they could be if you are looking for say fitness it could be a karate studio. If you are looking for hospitals it could be an urgent care. This is how they input it and how they let people know in karate studios under fitness and urgent care is under hospital. You need to just sort of hover over and look; okay what about right here; there’s LA Fitness great. What’s this one? That’s Quest martial arts studio. Anyhow that gives you a really good idea. There’s a ton of stuff. You can play around with this. You can draw maps. There are all kinds of things you could do; really beneficial. I just have other information in here of things to do. I like theater so I put that in there all the different play houses and the weather and the county maps so you know where the counties are. A lot of people say where is Hillsborough County and where does Hillsborough and Pasco meet or Pinellas etc.?
If you are looking at relocating I have a lot of relocation tips. I’ve relocated myself a few times and I’ve helped relocate, on corporate level, hundreds of families. Sellers there is a lot of information on different seller mistakes and reports right there, interviews and realtor tips. If you want a free home evaluation just fill out your address and I can get you that. The area information; what I’m trying to do with the area information if you look right here and scroll down you will see Apollo Beach and these are some of the bigger subdivisions in Apollo Beach; Fish Hawk Ranch is a subdivision unto itself in Apollo Beach Let me show you what I’ve done on this right here. If you look this is the New Tampa page and it is like this in all the cities. Now some of the cities Carrollwood because it is an older area there’s not…I just did all of Carrollwood because a lot of the subdivisions back in the 70s and 80s are really, really small subdivisions. There are not a lot of really big subdivisions and I don’t want to just do Carrollwood Golf and Country Club. Give you an example, you come over here and you can look and see where the different subdivisions are. You can click right here and that will take you to the subdivision. You can also look at all of the homes for sale and you can see right here. What I did is on cities I do a video and I’m really trying to tell everybody about the city because a lot of times people will say I don’t know anything about Riverview, New Tampa, or Apollo Beach so I’m really explaining to them what type of community it is; not from a sales person’s point of view but my job as a real estate agent is to educate people and give them the correct information and they can make the decisions themselves. That is what I do here. It is a little over five minutes and then I have a write up on it and again down here if you want to do a lifestyle search it is on pretty much every page again just go to lifestyles, turn lifestyles on and then do whatever you need to do.
That’s that and that goes over all of these and then you have different types of searches. Right here videos; the video tips are really good because what I’m trying to do there is really educate people; again we are in the information age. Fortunately there’s a lot of really good information out there for no money; unfortunately there’s a lot of really bad information out there and I see and hear it all especially when it comes to real estate. This video right here is about homestead laws and property taxes; my next one is about short sales and I do ones in bank owned because there’s a lot of information out there in short sales and foreclosures not foreclosed but foreclosure homes that is really inaccurate and I have been doing foreclosures and short sales since 1999. You have information of what are CDD fees. Boy I look a little funny in some of these! Hiring a buyer’s agent, new homes, this one right here if you are looking into new homes this is really an absolute must watch because it just is so in depth. It is my longest video I have ever done 32 minutes which is an eternity for me but it has a lot of really good information. There’s a lot of really good information. I also do statistics. I get so sick of these newspapers and news media reporting inaccurate information. This is raw data taken directly from the MLS. I’m not giving you my opinions on anything I’m just showing you the facts. This is going to be more than the Tampa Bay area in general and not other parts of Florida. Testimonials; these are video testimonials. Our blog has some really good information on it. I don’t put junk in there and of course about us. Again you can search some of these waterfront properties and they try to give you information if you are looking for waterfront properties and what you might want to look for in luxury homes. Again foreclosures etc.; doing a map search and even luxury pages but I’m not going to go through every single one of these; you can look. Go down a little further and there’s property search right here. Here’s the deal breaker for a lot of people. The nice thing and let me just go ahead and click in that and I’ll take you back; the nice thing we have over a lot of these pages out here is this; it might say pages Zillow, Trulia and all of them is this right here. The problem is our MLS sells data to everybody and everybody gets the same stuff. Don’t let anyone fool you like they don’t. They send everybody Trulia, Zillow, individual offices and agents the same information. What I have on my website is I am allowing you to manipulate it in a way most sites are not. What I mean when you are getting all of these other sites you are looking at homes that are actively available for sale and homes that have contracts on them. What I’m doing is allow you to just look at homes that are active for sale because why look at a bunch of homes and fall in love with the home, drive by and look at it, call an agent just to find that the property has a contract on it three weeks ago and it is not even available. They are done with the appraisals, inspection, and are waiting to close and that is what’s happening. This will give you the way to just search just for active listings. You can do this and it is a real big time saver. I also do home buyer webinars. I do two of them per week. It is only about a half-hour long with great free gifts. I do home seller webinars; two per week again fantastic free gift especially in this one for home sellers. All you need to do is just put your first name and your email address to register and pick a date that you want to come and you are good to go. Both of these are about a half-hour long; again I don’t like to just keep on boring you with everything but if you look through the website tons and tons of great information that I’ve done the research for you. I hope this helps you. If you have any questions whatsoever reach out to myself and either myself or team member will give you a call back. I always try to return all calls and emails myself. I wish you the best of luck and have a wonderful day.
