    First Time Seller Mistakes

    Selling is a much bigger deal than BUYING your first house – because this transaction comes with the potential of making money….possibly a LOT of money. So you want to do it right.

    With that in mind, let’s look at five mistakes first time sellers often make…and how to avoid them!

    Mistake number one: Making every issue a deal killer. Now sure, this is a big transaction, and your first sale. People are probably telling you that you only have one chance to get what’s coming to you, because once you sign the contract? All negotiations end. Well, that might be true, but if you dig in on every single issue – it’s going to be a rough road, and you could just scare the buyers away! So try to prioritize…what’s really important, like the price, or the settlement date. And what’s not! Like – the curtains – or the gas grill.

    Always Buy, Never Sell

    We’re going to leave you now with an idea for all you first time sellers out there…and it’s also something any seller might think about….It’s an idea that may even sound revolutionary … and that idea is?

    Always buy real estate, but never sell it. Ever heard that?

    It’s an interesting concept. But right from the start we should tell you that only the very best ‘savers’ will be able to do it. Because the idea is – instead of just using the equity on one house to buy your next one – you keep the first house. And save, save, save to buy the next one.

      Five First Time Buyer Mistakes

      We’re going to wrap up with a quick checklist – five mistakes every first time homebuyer should avoid!

      1.) Don’t start looking before you know how much you can afford. This is one of the most common mistakes first time home buyers make. before you have any ideas how much house you can afford to buy, you start looking every single open how you come across every single weekend. Not a good idea… because you could get all excited about this beautiful house you’ve just seen…. only to find out it’s so expensive you just can’t buy it. That is a heartbreak just waiting to happen. so it’s better just find out exactly what you can afford and then look in that price range.

        And if you’d like to join their ranks, by buying that condo in the heart of London, that ranch way out in the Australian Outback, or even a fishing lodge in British Columbia, well, you can. So let’s take a few moments now to talk about – how to make that happen.

        We’d like to wrap up with a few words for people who are not from America – but who want to buy real estate here. Of course, you’re not alone….plenty of international buyers head straight for the USA when they’re looking for property.

        And even though Real Estate Today is an American radio show – broadcast only on radio stations here in the US – we’re online too….and we have quite a few international listeners, who tune in to hear what’s going on, in the US real estate markets.

        So for you – a few words about doing real estate here in the US – the right way!

        First – make sure you use a REALTOR® here in America. Not just a real estate agent – but a REALTOR®…that is, a member of THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. They represent the highest level of professionalism, expertise and education – and they abide by a strict code of ethics – to make sure everyone in the transaction is dealt with fairly.
