nesbitt realty: Coinciding Settlements Clauses – Funding Issues - 03/10/17 07:52 AM
People who are selling their home in order to buy another frequently put a “coinciding settlements” clause into their contract offer on the new home. The purpose of this is usually twofold. In this article, we discuss the first purpose which is to use funds from the old home to pay for the new one.

A coinciding settlement clause usually says something along the lines of “settlement under this contract is contingent upon the settlement of the contract for the sale of the Purchaser’s property located at 1234 Spring Valley Drive…” It typically goes on to state the maximum … (0 comments)

nesbitt realty: Closing Costs When Buying A Home - 03/09/17 07:07 AM
Closing costs are often the last thing a person thinks of when buying a home. While closing is the joyous moment the home becomes yours, the costs can be surprisingly aggravating.

Closing costs come in many forms. Some involve significant dollars while others are relatively painless. Here’s a list of typical costs:

nesbitt realty: Maintenance on a Rental Property - 03/09/17 07:04 AM
Maintenance on a rental property can be a confusing issue. Renters may mistakenly assume all maintenance is the responsibility of the leasing agent and maintenance staff but this is usually not true. In many cases the leasing agent and maintenance staff are responsible for maintaining the common areas and performing major repairs on the apartments but the renters do typically have some responsibilities. These responsibilities are often defined in the rental agreement and the renter should familiarize himself with this document to verify his rights if a dispute arises.
Renter Responsibilities
Typically renters have the responsibility of maintaining their apartment and the surrounding … (1 comments)

nesbitt realty: Read your contract carefully - 03/07/17 10:23 AM
Read Your Contract Carefully
Many renters barely even skim their rental agreement before signing their name at the bottom. Most renters are primarily concerned with the monthly charges, one time only fees, required deposits and other financial matters. Once they verify this information is accurate according to their conversations with the leasing agent, they often sign the agreement with no questions asked. This is a mistake because a rental agreement is a legal contract which may have a host of important information which the renter should be aware of before signing the document.
Considering a Roommate?

nesbitt realty: Consider the Amenities - 03/06/17 11:10 AM
The amenities on a rental property can often be the deciding factor for many renters. The available amenities may make a less affordable property seem more appealing. Conversely a property which is more expensive may be considered worthwhile if the amenities offered are considered valuable enough to compensate for the higher price. When making this decision, homeowners should consider their own personal preferences as well as their budgetary constraints to make an informed decision. Before making a decision to rent a property, the renter should carefully consider which amenities are necessary, which amenities are optional but highly desired and how much … (1 comments)

nesbitt realty: A New Approach to Real Estate Lead Management - 03/03/17 07:37 AM
The Internet helped many real estate agents change the way they market their services. Now the same agents are changing the way they approach other aspects of the business – in particular, the process of capturing, filtering, and contacting leads. Web marketing helps attract more leads, but it’s becoming clear that agents might not be the right people to deal with them anymore. As the job shifts elsewhere, the role of agents is being redefined.
Many real estate agents likely saw the change coming thanks to the difference between web leads and non-web leads. It can generally be boiled down to a … (4 comments)
