Buying & Selling Your Home Made Easy
Tips for Sellers
If you’re trying to sell your home, there are many things to consider. Although some homeowners opt for an FSBO (for sale by owner), it is recommended to enlist a realtor to ensure you get the best market value for your property. With access to real estate and marketing tools that are otherwise unavailable to the public, a realtor can help you to close on the sale or receive more offers for your property.
Here are several helpful tips for sellers:
Beat the competition with condition
Consider painting and cleaning carpets. Also, get as many of the repairs done as you can. Make sure that the little nicks and scratches, doorknobs that don’t work, and faulty handles are all repaired before you start showing your home.
Pretend you’re moving out. Take all the things that make your home “your” personal sanctuary (family photos, collectibles, etc.), pack them up and put them in storage. Buyers want to visualize your house being their house – and it is difficult for them to do that with all your personal items marking the territory as yours.
Pack up all your belongings, including anything that is sitting on top of a countertop, table, or other flat surfaces. Give away what you can, throw away as much as possible of what remains, and then pack the rest to get it ready to move.
Stage the exterior with fresh paint, immaculate landscaping and even outdoor furniture. This will allow buyers to picture themselves enjoying the backyard by entertaining and spending time outside.
Access is essential
Homes that don’t get shown don’t get sold. Make it easy for agents to get their clients into your home. Be open to flexible scheduling and impromptu showings.
Get real about pricing
Today’s buyers are educated about the comparable sales in the area, which can heavily influence the fair market value of your home. Buyers also know the type of position they’re in, so it is important to make sure your home has a competitive edge in the market. Have your broker or agent get you the sales prices of the three most similar homes that have sold in your area in the last month or so, and then try to go 10-15% below that when you set your home’s list price. The homes that look like a great deal are the ones that get the most visits from buyers, and on occasion they even receive multiple offers – and bidding wars do still exist!
Tips for Buyers
Buying a home can be an overwhelming task, especially if it is your first time in the real estate market. Even if this is not your first home, the market can still seem like a scary place to navigate. With so many property types and financial fees to understand, there can be a lot to handle. To make this process just a little bit easier, we’ve provided some tips for buying a home.
Prepare to buy a home
There are a lot of things you should do before you find a home. Start by putting together an index of must-haves and get a feel for what neighborhoods you'd like to live in. This is also a good time to start planning your budget. Your mortgage payment should be less than 1/3 of your net monthly income. This will help you to get pre-qualified for a loan, which you should do before you start going to showings and looking at homes. Our realtors can even give you some names and numbers of reliable lenders that can help you. It makes things easier when sellers know that you are pre-qualified to buy a home.
Get in touch with one of our agents at Nexus
This is where our agents can help. After planning a time to get together, we will talk about why you want to buy a home and get an idea of your future plans. We will talk about everything from neighborhoods to the loan process.
After our first meeting, our agent will begin looking for homes on the market that are suited to your needs and preferences. We’ll research many of the homes and throw out the duds, and then we'll schedule appointments to tour the homes at a time that is convenient for you.
Find the house of your dreams
Our team is confident that we’ll find you the house of your dreams. When we do, our agent will meticulously create your home purchase offer. The offer will be tailored with your needs in mind, including a lot of contingencies. A few examples are getting financing, completing the inspection, and a clean title. When we send in your purchase offer, you will likely need to present “earnest money.” This is a cash deposit given to the home seller to secure an offer to purchase the property, and it is typically put towards the closing costs. If the offer is accepted, we should close on the home about 30-60 days after. This allows sufficient time for your mortgage financing.
Negotiate the deal
Most contracts aren't closed on the beginning offer, and it is also common to receive a counteroffer. Don't let this discourage you. We'll consider whether it is best to agree to the counteroffer, propose our own counteroffer, or decline the seller's offer and move on.
How aggressively we negotiate the contract depends on the state of the market. We'll also work within your financing constraints. At the end of the day, we'll put together a deal that's best for you.
Secure your loan
Upon completion of the contract, you will start working with your lender to close the loan. If you're already pre-approved for a loan, this shouldn't be a long process at all. However, you will want to keep in close contact with your lender. Plus, our agent will be sure to take care of all the property information your mortgage lender will need to close the loan.
Close the deal
You will get a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) of closing costs from your lender within three days of taking your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan amount. RESPA requirements mandate that it must contain all closing costs and fall within a tight range of accuracy, and our agent will review the estimate to let you know if it all looks permissible.
Then it is time to close on your home. This will most often happen at a title company or escrow office and should be a smooth and relaxing affair.
Congratulations! Now you can move into your new home!
Applying for a Loan
When buying a home, the loan application process can be stressful... but it doesn't have to be. Our agents have excellent relationships with many lenders across the Front Range, and we can help make the loan application process a breeze.
Put together a list of questions about your loan program
If you want to learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of the different financing options available to you, be sure to have a list of questions with you. One of our lenders or agents will assist you in understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both programs, because it can be a challenge to know the differences between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.
Decide when to lock
Locking in the rate denotes that your mortgage lender commits to the mortgage interest rates for the loan – usually at the time the loan application is presented. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between application and the issuing of closing documents. Those who elect to float presume that the interest rates will decline soon.
Determine if you want to pay additional points to lower your rate
If you elect to pay additional points to lower the interest rate of your loan, you will pay for them in cash at the time of closing. Every point is 1 percent of the mortgage loan.
Gather your paperwork
Getting a loan requires a lot of paperwork, so it is important to take some time to get your documentation together.
