How A Higher Commission Helps Sell Your Home Faster

Higher Commission And How It Helps Sell Your Home Faster   If you are placing your home for sale on the real estate market in Savannah and want to finish the deal as soon as possible, you are likely wondering what you can do to reach that goal. A range of tips and methods exist and promise to help you move forward without unneeded delays.   But some stand out from the rest, and offering a higher commission than average is a great way to sell your home as quickly as possible. Doing so gives your Realtor motivation to work hard and give your home the attention it needs and deserves. You will gain a range of other benefits to which you would otherwise not have access.     Attract the Top Agents The speed at which you sell your home depends on the skill and experience of the real estate agent you use. While someone without much experience could have trouble attracting the right buyers, an agent with skill and knowledge can offer impressive results.   The top real estate agents in Savannah’s historic district are not always easy to reach because they are careful about the deals they accept. You can grab their interest and inspire them to work with you by offering an attractive commission. The ones who are great at their job and know they can deliver consistent results will be pleased that you are putting in the effort to show appreciation.     Motivate Your Agent to Close the Sale When your objective is to complete the sales process without delays, getting your real estate agent on the same page is an important piece of the puzzle. Offering an attractive commission will give your agent’s motivation the required boost to do the trick. Wanting to get the extra money, your agent will put in even more effort to close your deal as soon as possible.     Motivate The Agents to Give Their Best Effort With standard listings, agents can become bored with the process and treat every home the same as the rest. Falling into that trap will make it take much longer for you to get prospects and serious buyers to view your home and make a down payment.   When you tell your agent about your plans to offer an even better commission, your agent will want to put in his/her best effort at all times. Your agent will pay attention to the word choice when writing each listing and take high-quality photographs to showcase your home’s best features. These steps might seem small but will go a long way to help you get rid of your home before you know it.     Make Your Home Stand out From the Rest Depending on the real estate market in your area, your agent probably has tons of homes to promote at any time. Unless you do something about it, your home will likely get lost in the crowd, and it could stay on…

Buying A House Flip? How To Get A Good Deal!

Buying A House Flip? How To Get A Good Deal!

Buying A House Flip? How To Get A Good Deal! Have you ever been in a situation where you were looking at a house, noticed it was habitable but had a few problems, but was still close to purchasing the house and then changed your mind once you realized it was a “flipped” property? If you have ever had this happen to you then you know how frustrating it can be. Unfortunately, it happens more often than you might think. However, if you realize a house is being flipped and you are still interested in the property there are some things that you can look out for and do to ensure you’re still getting a good deal.   Set Aside For Unforeseen Repairs   If you are looking to buy a home that is being flipped you really should go by the 20% rule. For example, if you are paying $500,000 for a house that you think needs a lot of work, it would be wise for you to set aside an extra $100,000 for repairs on said house. Likewise, if you are paying a hundred thousand for a home, you should set aside about $20,000. Although it’s not always an automatic disqualification, be wary of for sale by owner situations. It really is better to go through a local real estate agent. Finally, on top of all this, you probably should give yourself a financial buffer. This is simply because it would be terrible to spend all of your money and then not have enough to pay the property taxes and other incidentals.   Get To Know The Resale History   You mainly want to know how often the home has been sold. Look for any quick sales with a significant uptick in price. Moreover, if the individual flipping the house is experienced, then they have a track record. Investigate other properties they have flipped and talk to the buyers. They will be able to tell you if the house they bought still needed a lot of repairs after they purchase. Better safe than sorry. There are a lot of unscrupulous house flippers who will sell a home to an unsuspecting buyer and only do the bare minimum to make it livable.   Get To Know The House Up Close   This is also a pretty reliable sign of a flipped house simply because a house flipper will want to unload the house as quickly as possible. Making it appear attractive is one way to do that. That’s the bad news. However, the good news is that there are some house flippers out there that will offer you a stipend to have the house remade the way you want it. Before making any agreements, it would be worth your while to fully understand the stipend and what it will buy and what it won’t buy.   Determine What Changes Have Been Made   You need to determine what the history of the house is, because it will be another…
