On Thursday March 12th, We held a Homebuyers Seminar at the Wayne County Public Library! What a fun time we had. There were approx 20 people in attendance (21 if you count the 6 month old baby that attended with mom and dad!).
We covered many topics, Kirsten Bowie from Amerifirst talked about; Prequalifying for a loan, types of loans available, the new $8000 Tax Credit (that you do not have to pay back), those that qualify for the credit which includes those that have not owned a home in the last 3 years!
We covered the buying process from start to finish. On the average 17 people will touch a real estate transaction from start to finish - the agents, the buyer, seller, loan officer, appraiser, home inspectors, title people, escrow agent - the list goes on! So, it is very important to choose the right Realtor! Your Realtor will be the one that will keep everything flowing - that's their job - get it done, smoothly for their client!
We also covered buyers representation. This is very important...again choose the right Realtor for you! This agent can and will show you ALL the properties that meet your criteria (price, needs, location, etc) The agent you choose will help you negotiate the best deal for you. They can recommend inspections, inspectors, lenders and so much more, Your Realtor IS your expert!
Some of the other topics we comvered are Foreclosures - where to find them and how to buy them. Almost all banks are now turning to 3rd party companies to list the home and take care of getting the property ready to show. Almost always now, the home will be listed with a local Realtor. So, go to your Realtor for guidance!
Are we taking new clients???? Of course! If you would like a free consultation call us (remember you NEVER pay for a Realtor's service - they get paid when the deal closes from the Seller's Proceeds). Our team can place you on a free search of all the homes listed and have them emailed to you as soon as they hit the market!
Call us 330-439-1939 or email us at info@GetTheRealTeam.com Also, we can provide you with the entire Home Buyer Package we gave all that attended the seminar!
