VIDEO: The reason for the final walk-through

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

Today, I want to discuss a real estate concept many people aren’t familiar with: the final walk-through.

If you’re a buyer in a transaction, prior to you signing your documents at an attorney’s office, you will take a final walk-through of the property you are about to purchase. This is simply to ensure the home is in great working order and that you’re getting the home you thought you were getting when you did the inspection three or four weeks prior.

Many times, Realtors will perform the final walk-through for you. This is usually the case when our clients are buying a secondary home out of the area. After we do the walk-through, we call our clients who then close through mail if everything sounds as it should be.

If you have any questions about this topic or any other real estate topics, give us a call or shoot us a quick email. We would love to hear from you!

VIDEO: How to Get Your Offer Accepted?

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Multiple offer situations are fantastic news for sellers – but what if you’re a buyer? Today, we take a look at how you can make the most of a competitive market and get your offer accepted!

When competing with other buyers, it always boils down to motivation. If the home is absolutely perfect for you and your family, there are multiple things you can do to submit a winning offer. You can improve the terms, move up dates, and put more down, among other things, in order to really grab the sellers attention. If you know this is a home you want to be in for awhile, you need to be prepared to offer asking price, if not a little more.

My first home sale ever, we ended up having the buyer pay a little more than the home was worth in that particular market. However, they loved the house so much they ended up staying there for 15 years! Bottom line: if you love the home and there are other people competing, you need to make a highly compelling offer. On the other hand, if you have options, you don’t have to make a better offer than the other buyers!

If you have any questions about how you can submit a winning offer, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to help you make your real estate dreams a reality!
