Scott Godzyk's Active Rain entry why is the buyer laying in the sellers bed, is a pertinent Active Rain blog relevant to the Real Estate industry. Scroll down for the reblog.
From the files of "What were they thinking?" no one can say that Selling Real Estate is boring. With some homes there are only short Windows for showings some days. Therefore we schedule as many showings as we can in a row during the time we can see the home. During this 1 hour window 5 different buyers were scheduled arrive in 20 minute intervals. About half way through a scream from upstairs with a red faced buyer apologizing for waking the owner.
The owner is not here. I walked through the home and turned on all the lights and there certainly was not anyone sleeping upstairs. One of the buyer brokers who was here earlier comes back in with Mrs. buyer looking for her husband. Well.... he lay-ed down on the bed to rest. When asked why he would do that, he said they have no furniture so he was going to ask for the seller to include the bedroom set in his offer and just wanted to test it.
There are many lessons to learn here with the first is, where is the Buyer Agent on this one? The buyer "should know better" is not an excuse. Personal property should not be included in offers for homes and where were his manners?
Listing an Selling Real Estate is a specialty, it takes a full time local agent with experience to do things right. You can not afford to be someone's "trial and error". . The key is to have a Listing agent who goes over the complete listing and selling process with you. When buying you want an agent that will guide you through every step of the Buying process.
You should know though that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST, not just the biggest Real Estate Agent or Broker.
By using a philosophy, which is simple, to provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process, I can help you find your dream home .
THE TOP TIPS TO FIND A "GREAT" REAL ESTATE AGENT
1. LEARN THIS ONE FACT: One should know that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest Agent or Company. It is important to Hire the BEST Agent. In NH that could be me.
2. CHOOSE THE RIGHT AGENT: As a Buyer OR Seller in this market you need every advantage you can to get your home sold. It starts with choosing the right agent. a. Ask for a Full time agent whose sole job is to sell homes. b. Ask for a Full service agent who will guide you through each step of the selling process. Discount brokers often equal discount services. c. Ask for a Local agent who knows your neighborhood and is readily available when you need them is a must. Out of town agents can leave you high and dry in your time of need. d. Ask for a well experienced Listing Agent can give you the advantages you need when selling your home. Not all agents are created equal. Choose only the best.
3. HOME BUYERS SHOULD START BY: Getting a FREE PRE-QUALIFICATION with a local and trusted lender. They will look at your credit and financial picture and let you know what type of mortgage you may qualify for and what your interest rate and monthly payment may be.
4. HOME SELLERS SHOULD START BY: Getting a FREE MARKET ANALYSIS. Learn what your property is worth in today's market along with how ling it may take to sell. If you are ready to sell now, learn what you should ask for it. How much offers may come in at and what the approximate selling price should be. NH Home owners should contact me now.
IN SUMMARY the key to having a successful purchase or sale can increase simply choosing a better agent. The secret is that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. I leave you with now infamous philosophy, which is simple, to provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process.
