Don’t Move Junk!

we’re going to wrap up with one last word about what the movers will actually put on the truck….and bring from your old house to the new one.

So – sure. They’ll carefully pack up your brand new, 4K flat screen TV….and make sure it arrives in perfect shape. Good.

But – what about that old TV in the guest bedroom? Or in the basement?You know – the one you bought in 2002, 15 years ago? The one that weighs 400 pounds, and is neither a flat screen, nor digital, nor High-definition.

Two at Once?

As you know, whether you call it the closing, the settlement or escrow, it all means the same thing – it’s the moment the property moves from the seller to the buyer. Very exciting.

But if you’re up for it, right now we’re going to talk about settlements on steroids – twice as complicated, twice as important, and twice as stressful, as a normal settlement.

And I’m talking about all those people, who sell one house, and buy another – all in one day.

That’s right – one day!

Getting the Mail!

Even after it’s all done…there’s one last thing that connects the buyer and seller – something that’s not always pleasant.

The mail!

Say you just bought a house….BUT the former owner still gets lots of mail, every single day!

Or if I sell a house….but I never get ANY of the mail addressed to my old place forwarded to me. Nothing!

OK, I know. In today’s digital world, some people never get any mail. But most of us do. Whether it’s a bank statement or a refund check or a magazine subscription. So when the house changes hands – what happens?

Buyer Strategies

We’re going to talk to you buyers out there – about how you can write an offer they can’t refuse – even if you have competition for the house.

OK first up – you have to be pre-approved for the mortgage before you even start looking at houses. Because if you and your REALTOR® find the perfect place, and want to write an offer on it – that is NOT the time to start the pre-approval process. Have that all done – before your REALTOR® opens up the first door.

Next – Once you find a home that you just LOVE, and that you can afford, talk to your REALTOR® about what should go in the contract.

Seller Strategies

We’re going to talk to all you folks who will be selling your house this Spring. Exciting, isn’t it? I mean, buying a house is great….but when you do that, you’re paying money. When you sell – you’re making money….maybe a LOT of money! At least that’s the plan. So let’s talk about what to do when you get one, or maybe 20 offers – on your house!

It is such a great moment – when your REALTOR® calls and says – ‘we have an offer!’ Now, if you are a certified human being, ha, your first question will be – how much? What price did the buyer come up with?

And yes, that is huge, But – it’s not everything.
