Real Estate & Realistic Expectations...

Reblogger Peter Mohylsky, Beach Expert

Managing Expectations is a big part of any business.  We are not alone.  SO 

When buying or selling a property.  

Hire an agent who knows how things work in your market. 

* Hire an agent who collaborates well with others. 

* Hire an attorney who is well-versed in real estate.

Understand that homeownership WILL require you to make periodic minor repairs and upgrades to your home.

Nearly daily, I seem to be having a conversation with people about the horrors of their home buying experience.  I think back on ours too (which happened long before my career started in real estate) and can only think of one word:  YIKES!

 

I can't believe the risks we took and the "professionals" that we enlisted to help us reach our goal.  Luckily (& it WAS luck because the skill profile was lacking across the board!!!), it all worked out but... WOW!!!

So fast forward to now...  Quite honestly, there are a lot of opportunities for frustration in the home buying (& selling!) process.  From finding properties that might work, to getting an offer accepted, and then the process to closing. 

 

Specifically though, I see a trend lately and things are heating up within real estate transactions.  On one hand, buyers are more savy & do a great job of researching market areas and properties.  On the other hand, I frequently see unrealistic expectations rearing their ugly head during the inspection phase.  Couple this with some agents who either don't understand how this part works OR promise to be the "hero" and insert unrealistic expectations into the inspection phase, and the hurdles to get to closing just grew.  

 

What's a buyer (or seller) to do?! 

* Hire an agent who knows how things work in your market. 

* Hire an agent who collaborates well with others. 

* Hire an attorney who is well-versed in real estate.

* Understand that homeownership WILL require you to make minor repairs

to the place you call home.
