Honest Real Estate Advice

This article is not just for the real estate agents; it’s for everyone. Whether you want to sell, buy, or represent somebody else, it will most certainly not be a waste of your time.

There are too many cases of people getting tricked into committing to far worse deals than they could’ve gotten if only they knew a bit more about this business. We won’t be able to cover all the aspects of real estate (naturally), but you will most definitely be smarter after reading this text.

Advice for Buyers

When it comes to buying a house, it matters a lot which time of the year you’re buying. Research showed that 52 percent of the Millennial generation (people aged 19-34) are going to buy their first home in the year 2017. This means that there will be a lot of interested people, which also means the bidding war will be fierce. Most houses get sold during Spring. At this time of the year everybody starts looking and bidding for their dream house, and in most cases, there are at least two interested buyers at any given moment for a single home. The prices get blown out of proportion, and everyone loses except for the sellers. Make preparations now and don’t waste time. Winter is not the best time of the year to look for a home, but in this case, you might be saving a lot of money.

People tend to give promises to many different buyers in order to get their price as high as they can. If you haven’t signed anything, the seller will almost always sell the house to a higher bidder, no matter their word. So keep looking and don’t get stuck on just one house.

Advice for Sellers

The most important thing you need to do before you do anything else is find the right agent. For example, if you live in Brentwood, hire the best agent in Brentwood. Not only will you get the best possible deal, but you will also avoid any unnecessary headaches. There is just no way that you know more about real estate than one of the best agents in your area if you do not practice the trade. This will help a lot with any legal issues too, so unless you’re certain, you know everything there is to know, hire the best possible agent you can find.

Ideally, the best time for you to sell your home would be Spring time. As we’ve mentioned above, most people search for their homes during this period of the year. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start prepping earlier. A good strategy would be to take photos of your home just after the first snow hits. Show them just how cozy your house will be during those cold winter nights. Make repairs, paint your home, do whatever is necessary to make your house look better. No matter how much you spend on preparations, you will get at least double once you sell your home. Furthermore, it will help you sell your home much faster.
