HOMEOWNERS WHO WANT SELL ON THEIR OWN! KNOW THESE FACTS FIRST!

IMPORTANT FACTS HOMEOWNERS NEED TO KNOW, BEFORE THEY PLACE THEIR SIGN IN FRONT OF THEIR DOOR. BEWARE! FEB.20TH, 2012 SPECIAL ALERT!
1) Since the economic Conditions has affected many in the past 3 years, that also increased crime threefold in all areas. Confirm these facts yourself by calling or visiting the 104 Presinct.
Break ins, muggings, Bank robberies, Push ins after they ring the Bell, Seniors being held up after cashing their Social  Security checks by gunpoint,etc. This is no joke, and a very serious matter.
2) Your sign is outdoors, someone calls to see your home, you and your family are at risk two ways. One for an immediate hold up, or visual inspection of your home, locks, security systems, etc.(FOR ANOTHER TIME). And think about this, you have a child, her/his name is on her bedroom wall, and you don't know if you your allowing a child Predator in your home.
3) Qualifications- Half the buyers who are serious, have been pre-qualified when shopping for a home. But many have so much debt these days, they end up with bad credit scores. And Those buyers will never qualify to get a mortgage.  But you let them in because they rang your bell, and or called you from their car in front of your door.
4) choosing the right Realtor to represent you, pre-qualifying customers prior to appointments, comforting you to  know who is coming to your home, is worth the Peace of Mind and the Real Estate Fee Commission.
There are worthy Brokers in our Community who know what they are doing. Plenty to choose from.
Be Safe, Be smart this is Reality today.
