We've all heard the saying, "While you're sleeping on it, someone else will be sleeping in it." At no other time during the last eight years of residential real estate could this be more accurate. Nice homes that are priced right and marketed correctly are flying off the shelves. Multiple offers and final sales prices over the listing price are happening more and more.
This might be a surprise for buyers, considering they've been told by their parents or colleagues to start their offer at 20 percent below the listing price. This is a crucial item to go over at the buyer consultation meeting. Have the discussion that when they find a home they love, there is a good chance someone else loves it, too. Not only will this set them up to get the home they truly want, but it will make your life easier when it comes time to write a strong offer. A buyer doesn't just hire us to negotiate; they hire us to get them the house they want.Learn More & Contact
Get pre-approved, not just pre-qualified. Go shopping for a mortgage. You'll find out how much you can borrow, which has a lot to do with how much house you can buy. Sellers favor buyers that are pre-approved.
Analyze your needs: Determine desired home and neighborhood. We'll help you determine exactly what you and your family need in your next home. Taking that information into consideration, you are ready to embark on your home search.
Now that you've found your dream home. It's time to make an offer! We will help you determine the offer price by reviewing comps. Once your offer is made you need to negotiate with the seller to reach an agreement; which is our specialty.
When you make the decision to hire a brokerage to represent your family in the sale of your biggest financial asset, be careful to select someone who is not only going to "list" your property, but someone who is going to listen to the reasons you bought the home, someone who wants to tell a story about the community, someone who wants to paint a picture for out of town buyers, someone who will aggressively advertise your home, someone who is going to use hyper-targeted marketing tactics. If you're going to pay a brokerage 3% to represent your interest, make sure they are the very best.Learn More & Contact Free Home Value Report
