It's a good idea to find out.
Finding your dream home (priority)
In the order of neighborhood-location-structure-state-finish
Always neighborhood first
Wish-list and Must-list (Buyer Questionnaire)
Sacrificing a neighborhood for a house is better than sacrificing a house for the neighborhood.
The Chens to regret are much higher.
Write Offer (Price, Decisions)
Preliminary research: Title, school district, neighborhood, Zoning, History, Tax, etc.
Thorough market research for market price analysis
Talking as it is
Helping set strategic offer prices: ignoring the receiving price, setting an objective price range, setting the best price a buyer can give, bargaining strategy
Prices must be based on objective data. And you almost always need a little more than a comfortable price to buy a house.
Write Offer (Beat the Competition)
Beyond the number: Solve your seller's questions in advance (loan, purchase motives, etc.)
Two rabbits: bargaining through objectivity, gaining likability through honesty
Clean and seamless paperwork: fill in the blanks properly
Adhere to customs; If you need to escape, more explanation is required
Know your seller's situation in advance by asking appropriate questions
Leverage principle applied: give small things and bring big things
The way and ability of agents to write offers is the difference between the sky and the earth.
It is a big mistake to think that if the price is the highest, you will be chosen.
Continued negotiations and contract fulfillment work
Accurate and seasoned paperwork
Smooth communication with various related organizations
Discussing measures to review various disclosures
Various inspection recommendations and accompanying
Strategic and convincing repair requests
Appraisal / Loan Monitoring
Closing preparation (Walk-Thru, Loan Doc, key Transfer, etc.)
After escrow: Lifetime customer, Lifetime service
If you don't lose at all and don't make any concessions, you can miss the line. There is nowhere for sentiment to occupy in real estate transactions.
