Keller Williams Realty Cityside, Gail and Dana: "Our Family Serving You"
The best deals out there are the foreclosed homes. The banks won't allow you to be under contract if you have a property to sell.
The homes that you're driving by, seeing signs and being told they're under contract probably are under contract. Realtors will continue to leave their for sale signs out front until the home is sold.
Offers are falling apart everyday for one reason or another. The home that's under contract today may no longer be under contract when you're ready to purchase your home.
There are many worthless agents out there but you may be someone that isn't a viable client; agents evaluate clients as after all, we only get paid if deals close.
Just tossing this out there
I want some heat out of this stove, as soon as it gives me some heat I will put in some fuel. I doubt seriously anyone is trying to conceal anything from you, Realtors spend a fortune trying to get people to call. More than likely there is something wrong with how you are approaching them. <<<
that is the problem. too many agents spend too much time and money generating a lead. when they should spend that time and money generating a sale.
leaving out all of the pertinent information may well generate more calls. but that does not equate to generating more sales.
i fail to see how a buyer can make you, the agent, nervous. why did you spend all of that money soliciting leads? i am looking to buy. i have the cash. what other criteria is there, for the agent.
i see the same problem today. agents do not respond. or they respond and then fail to follow up.
home sales must be doing well, if an agent can ignore a prospective buyer.
If Realtors are making you nervous it could be because you are making them nervous acting as a free agent that doesnâ€™t yet have a plan. Realtors do not charge by the hour but rather based on performance. If they do not close a deal they do not get paid. You have indicated you want to buy another home, if you have enough equity in your existing home including cash to pay cash for the next home that will work. If that is not the case, make sure you can get a loan before selling your existing home. I had to turn down more than one buyer in the past year that had already sold their existing home.
Find a good Realtor and have them introduce you to the loan officer they trust the most. Gather all of the support documents that will be needed to apply for a loan and meet with the LO face-to-face, have them walk you through the process and options available, good luck, home this helps,
"For sale" signs, at least in my market, are left up until the day of close. If a deal falls through, we might have some other interested buyers. But most buyers here are working with agents, not checking Trulia and driving around to make calls themselves.
If the agents are making you nervous, ask around locally for referrals of agents your friends or family have been pleased with in the past. Interview a couple and see who you feel comfortable with.
I would also like to take a minute and apologize for not receiving a phone call back if you have a left a message.
Our recommendation is to first find an agent that you can work with and put them in charge of identifying and showing you homes that meet your search criteria. They will also be able to advise you about the best way to market your current home.
Put an agent to work for you!
