What you want to do is avoid "OUT OF TOUCH" with reality realtors and completely inaccurate info and very flawed advice for 2012!
DO NOT listen to those who show by their comments just how OUT OF TOUCH they truly are about the mortgage industry here in 2012 who have apparently been out of the country over the last 5 yrs and/or who are completely uneducated and ignorant about all the new rules of lending in America, the mandated disclosures of compensation, mandatory time frames, the info required to just to receive certain disclosures, etc.
Ask yourself this question: Why is it that over the last 5 yrs thousands of Mortgage Brokers have become realtors, but no realtors have become Mortgage Brokers?
FLORIDA MORTGAGE BROKER: Finding the â€œRIGHT REALTORâ€
As a Florida Mortgage Broker who has been in the business since the 90â€™s, through the highs and lows of this rollercoaster called the Florida Real Estate Market, who has extensive experience dealing with realtors all over Florida, I can't stress to you how important it is to shop realtors in advance. But as youâ€™ll soon see, there are a lot of realtors in Florida who want your business, so shopping for that â€œRight Oneâ€ can be overwhelming! There are literally thousands of realtors to choose from in FL, and most are good realtors who will do a decent job and get you a decent deal, but as a 2012 buyer you want an Extraordinarily Good Deal!
They say that approx. 68% of consumers end up working with the first or second buyer's agent they contact. Unfortunately, soon after many buyers feel they commitment to working with the wrong realtor, but feel obligated to work with that realtor throughout the buying process, all the while wishing they had shopped more realtors in advance to find that â€œRIGHT ONE.â€
So hereâ€™s a quick 5 item test to help identify that â€œRight One.â€
Find one who:
1. treats you as if you are buying a $5,000,000 property
2. is willing to disclose good credit and scores over 700 with no Foreclosures, BKs or Short Sales
3. has a smart phone so they can answer all your calls and emails quickly throughout
4. is a broker or buyer's agent who does not have to split the 3% commission points
5. is willing to offer Realtor Rebate to buyers willing to get Pre Approved in advance
Then, hereâ€™s a simple 2 step way to get your Best Overall Dealâ€¦
contact the realtors you think you like and listen to what they say theyâ€™ll do for you. Then ask them to refer you to their very best â€œPreferredâ€ or â€œIn-Houseâ€ Lender. Listen to their best purchase strategy and ask for their best written quote on an estimated sales price, on a TBD (To Be Determined) property address.
contact me, Iâ€™ll present my best purchase strategy, show you what my realtor partners can do for you. Then compare to see which team offers the best purchase strategy and your best overall deal.
Youâ€™ll be shocked at the difference youâ€™ll find with such little effort!
