Money Monday: Make smart purchase offers

When you write a purchase offer, the back-and-forth between you and the seller begins (typically with real estate agents advising both of you) — and when you are intentional about your number and why, the more successful you’re offer will be.

All-cash offers in today's real estate market

Following some guidelines from HouseLogic when choosing your purchase offer amount will help:

  1. Know your financial limits and stick well within them.
  2. Get familiar with the real estate lingo (an agent helps tremendously here!)
  3. Have your agent run the comps to see how the list price of the home compares and then take other aspects (like time on market, availability of other similar properties in the area, etc) into account.
  4. Figure out your down payment.
  5. Make an earnest money deposit if you’re truly serious about buying the house.

Money Monday: Should you sell your house with a Realtor or on your own?

Many homeowners decide to sell their home without hiring a Realtor. Does listing your home with a real estate agent or listing it as a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) make more sense?

Well, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS believes that homesellers going the FSBO route will spend more time trying to make a sale, and end up with a lower selling price than if they had used a real estate agent — and they have some statistics to back them up.

Take a look at their infographic below, and if you are selling and would like a Realtor to do the job for you, give me a call! I’m here to help you get your home sold! John A Silva, (619) 890-3648
