I am looking for an agent out there that is willing to keep on top of the local market and help me close a good deal on a couple of property types.

Asked by realtor.com, Indialantic, FL Sun Nov 18, 2012

I am ready to buy but am thoroughly disgusted with this local beach market, and with constantly finding properties that look good only to see them listed as contingent. often before they show up on realtor.com. It appears that corporate pros, (and I hear big companies), are buying the good stuff up leaving only leftovers for the bottom feeder folks like me. If you are willing to work for your commission and keep on top of the market and find me a good deal when it arrives, you can make a sale. Anyone up for this?

Mortgage Broker responds:

Follow my instructions carefully and you'll greatly improve your chances to get your overall best deal

1. Deposit at least 5% to 10% of the sales price range in an Attorney's Title Co. and obtain an Escrow Letter

2. If you need a loan, contact me and I'll give you a Pre-Qualification Letter

3. Contact one of my realtor partners who will put you on an Auto Email Alert as properties hit the MLS. They'll set you up to receive the actual MLS "BROKER SYNOPSIS" with the listing agent's contact info, names, phone numbers, emails and what commission the property pays in the bottom section of the page VS. the generic "Client Synopsis" that buyer’s agents usually send with that section is covered with the Buyer's Agent's info/advertisement.

4. Have your Escrow Letter and Pre-Qualification Letters ready, so as soon as you see something you like you can quickly email the letters to the listing agent and your buyer’s agent simultaneously. This will separate you form the rest of the pack and shows you’re a serious buyer that is ready to close quickly!

5. My realtor partner will then arrange for entry to the property, and if you like it, they’ll help you negotiate your best deal

6. In addition, on any property over $140,000, my realtor partners are willing to offer the following REALTOR REBATE examples:

$150,000 up to $1,500 rebate

$250,000 up to $3,500 rebate
$300,000 up to $5,000 rebate
$400,000 up to $8,000 rebate
$500,000 up to $10,000 rebate
