Try to stimulate your vision when looking at a not so perfect bargain

Posted on 2 August, 2019 at 14:20 Comments comments ()
When you come across or when your realtor shows you a property that is a very good bargain but doesn't meet all your needs or desires try to in vision what the property would look like with your own personal touches and maybe a repair here and there. I wouldn't suggest that you think about expensive items or repairs, because that naturally would take away the bargain factor, unless the asking price is so low that even with the expensive item or repair it's still a great deal, but what I am sugge...

When you are ready to make your final decision on a home, be it a condo, single dwelling , manufactured, multifamily , etc, etc, always ask if there is an HOA OR POA or some form of Home Owners or Property Owners Association involved with the subdivision of where your property is located. Too many people take it for granted and don't realize the commitment or coverage , bad or good that comes with being a member . I have said it before and I will say it again, there is no clear good or bad abou... Read Full Post »

The more questions and information the better

Posted on 12 September, 2014 at 0:30 Comments comments ()

When it comes to shopping or listing your home, the more questions you ask the better, don't ever worry about asking your agent or home builder what is on your mind. It is true that your agent , be it that they be your listing agent or buyer's agent , should be asking questions as well, that is why they are there but we are only human and sometimes it maybe something that we over looked. If you don't feel comfortable about asking, have your agent ask, and if they can't answer themselves and a...

Pricing Your Home To Sell

People ask me all the time how do I know how to price my house right when I decide to list. Well let me begin by saying that is one of the biggest reasons I beleive you should have a Realtor when listing. Now does that mean that what they say or what I reccomend as being the absolute? No, there is no absolute in pricing. What there is are ways to find out satistically what prices will give you your best chance of selling based on past experiences. This process is known in the real estate buss...

Home Inspections

Posted on 18 April, 2014 at 22:55 Comments comments ()

Home Inspections are not required to purchase a home but it s for the most part highly reccomended. The cost of a general home inspection can range anywhere from several hundred to $700.00, with most generally runing around $300 -$500.00, it s always a good idea to have an inspector give you a free quote and discuss what is included. Not all inspectors perform the same type of inspection and it's unwise to assume that because you will have the same type of inspection from a previous home insp...

why have contingencies ? isn't the good old hand shake enough ?

Posted on 31 March, 2014 at 15:40 Comments comments ()

 The answer is a big no!!! unless you want to gamble that what you want will be or not be done. Till this day I have people ask me that because they believe everyone is honest and willing to do what they say they will do when selling or buying a home. It's not because people are necessarily dishonest, it happens for a number of reasons . When people are selling or buying there is an awful lot of emotion that goes into the process, very understanding conside...
