“Buyers beware of shortcuts as they almost cost you money. Beware of discount agents” – Larry Stanley

What do smart savvy sellers do when it comes to selling homes?

  • Hire the best real estate agent around and negotiate a fair and reasonable commission for them
  • Check their references by calling 2 or 3 recent buyers or sellers
  • The agents must know how to set up and manage on your behalf a bidding war
Mortgage and interest rates data:
  • The federal government has control on short term interest rates but not on long term mortgage interest rates
  • Mortgage rates do not change easily
  • FHA has 3 ⅕ percent down and Conventional has at least 20% down

Items that buyers and sellers should be aware of

  • Don’t hire an agent offering discounted fees because you will have discounted services
  • Look for an agent that’s good at negotiating
  • Find an agent who focuses on you and knows how to market
  • When you’re a seller, you must know in advance what months are the best time to sell
  • March, April, May, and June are still the strongest time for home sellers. These are the only time period in a year that the number of buyers is going down by 50% 
  • The best time for buyers to buy is December
