Why Should My Seller Choose Your Offer?

When you are looking to buy a home in todays hot real estate market, its important to think about the Seller when making your serious offer on a home. Here are a few points to think about when you want that dream home in a competitive market.

When your offer is submitted via the real estate agent on your dream home, what is it about your offer that My Seller would prefer over all others that are presented? Most buyers think its only about price, but that is not always the case. The Seller has needs. He wants to get his home sold in the shortest possible time, for the most amount of money, with the least amount of hassle and inconvenience. The answer is literally in that sentence. So how can you make that happen?

Shortest Possible Time - A serious seller will have priced him home to suit the market. As his representative, we would have gone through the stats and decided on an appropriate price for the property in order to get it sold in the shortest possible time. Your quick move ...

Overpriced Homes - Do they Sell in a Hot Market?

Do Overpriced Homes Sell?

When pricing your home, consider these 12 points



Experienced buyers who have been looking for a while will know your home is overpriced and won't even look at it
Unscrupulous agents may use your home as a springboard to sell another home with similar accommodation thats priced correctly
The first 30 days is the most important days for your listing, make the most of it to get it sold
The longer your home is on the market, the less the value in the buyers mind (What is wrong with this property?)
Buyers search in price brackets. If your home is priced out of the price bracket, it may never be seen by the right buyer
If there are no or few showings in the first week of hitting the Market, the Market is telling you the property is overpriced
If the Buyers are coming to look at the property and not offering, the buyer is telling you it is overpriced and your home should consider a price improvement.
In today's busy market, pricing your home cor ...

How Much Can I Sell My Home For?

In today's market, Sellers know that there is low inventory and their home will be one of only a few for qualified buyers to choose from. Because of that, they feel that they can get more for their property than the agents want to price it for right now. Should they put a higher price on their property? 

When we have a busy real estate market there are more real estate agents who come into the industry and either they don't have the experience and they are out there showing homes and making sales. When there is a listing to be had, the Seller will inevitably invite a few people in to give him a valuation on his property. There will always be one or two who will go in with a higher price, in order to get a good chance of getting the mandate to sell that home. The Seller wants to hear that the home will get more and the agent who wants the mandate may be inclined to accept a mandate at that higher price, stating that its probably "worth trying." The reality is, they are un ...

Are You Protected By the Contingencies Written Into Your Contract to Purchase a Home

When Purchasing a home, your real estate agent will want to know about the contingencies that need to be in your contract. An experienced agent will know exactly how to protect you, but lets look at a few that definitely could apply to you and should be considered when writing your contract.





Contingent Upon a Mortgage
If you are borrowing money from a lender, you want to be sure that this condition is written in, because if it isn't, you may have to proceed with the sale without the protection of a mortgage or face legal and financial consequences. This would be pretty standard in any real estate contract and would be deleted should the purchaser be paying cash for the property.

Contingent Upon Selling Your Home
This would be important if you were purchasing a home and needed to sell your existing home in order to continue with the purchase of the new one. Normally this contingency would have a time period attached to it, so that the seller would not wait forever until ...
