WHAT GOES WITH HOUSE?

Hits: 468

Real Estate is usually defined as the land and everything attached to it, such as:
buildings, trees, shrubs, fences, etc. The buyer normally gets all of the real estate, but none of the owner’s personal property. The problem arises when personal property has become part of the real estate. This is called a fixture and does not pass with the real estate.
There are three usual tests which must be satisfied.

IF YOU SELL BEFORE YOU BUY

Hits: 498

Should you sell your current house before you buy a new one? The main dilemma here is the possibility of having no house to live in before you purchase the new one. Forewarned is fore-armed.
If you list your house with a Realtor, you could write “negotiable” under the closing date in the listing. Then you can ask a higher price from a buyer who wants to move in quickly, or can lower the price to induce a c

FINDING A WAY TO BUY A HOME

Hits: 485

Don’t listen to the “gloom and doomers.” Buying a home today is not an unreachable dream. However, it takes a lot more ingenuity than it used to. If your financial condition will not allow you to settle in one of the affluent suburbs forget about looking there. Start looking in areas where prices are more in line with what you can afford. Also, housing values can be much better the further one goes from

EMPTY HOUSE PRESENT PROBLEMS

Hits: 491

Selling an empty house presents some problems. For example, the very lack of furniture and personal items make the rooms appear smaller and less clean. Buyers notice the shaded spots on the walls where pictures once hung, children’s hand prints, and especially every stain on the empty wall-to-wall carpeting. They have nothing else to look at. There is a feeling of a house rather than a home.

Hits: 544

Your home has been for sale, inspected and the latest enthusiastic prospect presents you with an “offer” to buy. Review this offer with care. It’s an extremely important part of the sale.
Are all names correct? Is the property correctly described? Is the mortgage information accurate? Can you move by the possession date? Is the purchase price satisfactory? Then double check your calculations to be

Hits: 545

Looking for your first house? One of the most important questions will be how much can you afford? That depends on several factors, including your present income, credit and future prospects as well as money available for down payment. Buying a house represents a substantial investment.

WHEN DIVORCE MOTIVATES SALE

Hits: 549

More often than not, a divorce- motivated house sale will produce less than a fair market value simply because emotion gets in the way of good business sense. The selling agent generally must negotiate each item of the contract twice, usually in two different places, with two people having different goals and, sometimes, openly hostile with each other. Here are some tips:

SELLER AND THE SHOWING

Hits: 605

What should a homeowner do during the showing of the house?

Hiring a knowledgeable and professional broker should allow the owners to feel they do not need to be around.

This is what they are getting paid to do!

Often, it’s best that the homeowner not be present at all. Prospects feel that they should not criticize a home when the owner is present. However, part of the realtor’s job is ferreting out the
