We all wish we could obtain two or three quality listings. The key is what are your future plans. Working evenings only in real estate is not the ideal situation for you or for your clients. Things frequently happen in the real estate business at times that we have no control over as far as when they happen. Will you be available to handle that? Is your full-time job flexible enough that you can step away if need be?
If you are thinking about working your way into full time, then you will have to work hard to build your clientele just as we all have. I mean, just think about what you stated. You are pretty much saying that you don't want to start in the trenches.....you just want two or three good listings. If you were a buyer looking for a good agent, would you pick you?
Don't misunderstand me though. I never knocked on doors and I only made one cold call. That was enough for me. I have built my business to the point of referrals only and that comes from long hours, much patience and a willing heart to help people and to listen to their needs and guide them forward.... more
The first thing to do is talk to a local mortgage lender and get pre-qualified for a mortgage. Basically the lender will look at your financial situation and determine how much of a mortgage you can qualify for, which will then tell you how much you can afford to spend on a house. If you don't know a good local lender (not a big bank, but a smaller bank that specializes in writing mortgages) you should call a realtor and ask to be referred.
Once you are pre-qualified you will need to choose a realtor to work with to find your new home. The realtor will guide you through the entire process from finding the home straight to closing.... more
See what Google Maps driving directions says, but I would plan on 35 minutes just in case, but could do it in 25. Best thing to do is to drive it!

Hi A, I would ask friends and coworkers for good experiences they may have had. You can also use somebody like me who, although in Philly, have contacts in Charlotte and know what questions to ask. So I can so the phone interviews for you and give you a name.
I know www.talkcharlotte.com is a large resource.
Good luck to you!

May have been a miscommunication or a misunderstanding of the verbal offer. Once written, the contract may be more clearly understood; yet not be acceptable as written. End result is that until both buyer and seller have executed (signed) the contract, it is not binding.
You should have a discussion with your agent and ask what went wrong.
Best of luck to you with your home buying.... more
Hi, there is nothing wrong with following up on the offer. The whole idea of waiting it out just to let the other side know we aren't desparate is ridiculous in my eyes. Obviously all parties want the deal to happen because they entered into a negotiation to begin with! I would follow up after 24 hours, strike while the iron is hot. Otherwise time goes by, more houses come on the market, and buyers walk away. I recently had this happen to me.

The buyer. If something is then wrong with the roof, depending on what option was chosen, you could then get back with the seller to (a) have the problem fixed at the seller's expense (b) Part is paid by you and part paid by seller (c) reduce the offer price by what it would cost to fix (unless the property is priced very low anyway) (d) nullify the contract.
Like I said, this depends on what option was chosen for the inspection AND if the property is bank owned. Usually when a property is bank owned, you can inspect it all you want, the bank usually won't have anything fixed.
Get with your real estate agent about these questions and an attorney if you don't have a real estate agent.

Ask the seller to provide copies of his heating and air conditioning bills for the previous 12 months before making an offer.

Hello Val! Yes, the price of an REO can be negotiated, but keep in mind that the bank (seller) has already "lost" money in the foreclosure process. They may not be as flexible as a standard sale, but the price can always be negotiated.... more
Good evening Elizabeth,
Unfortunately, the buyers determine what is a good price in today's buyers' market. A good rule of thumb is if you have 12 showings or are on the market 21 days without even a crazy offer, your home is priced too high. You and your agent should have a conversation every couple of weeks to see what price range homes are selling, what the Sellers are offering (Seller Assist, Home Warranty, etc...) and where your home's price is positioned compared to what is selling. We may feel that a home is priced "Right"; but, if the potential buyers are not making offers, then it may not be. I hope this helps. Steve... more
Good evening Elizabeth, as in every market, their are always people looking to purchase a home in Lansdowne; however, in today's market homes priced too high or not marketed properly stay on the market for a longer time than a few years ago. Nice homes, even ones needing updating, if priced at market value and marketed properly can sell in a much shorter time frame. If you would like to contact me directly, I'd be happy to set a No Obligation Walk Thru appointment. When your home sells, where are you moving to? Steve... more
Delaware County is very reasonably priced. There are programs out there that can assist you with a down payment in Delaware county, I have a buyer working with one right now that will be helping him with $5000 down for closing costs. There are plenty of listings in the area that I could show you that would be the same or less monthly payment as a rental in the same area. Please send me an email or give me a call so we can talk more about this.

Dear Home Buyer:
To answer your question regarding the "Recording of the Sheriff's Deed," yes you could still buy the property but it is a REO(Real Estate Owned) and it would depend your needs and how much work is needed on this property. I would be glad to show you the property at your convenience. Best way to reach me is via my cell phone: 610-721-8471. Good luck.... more
Regardless of the square footage and short sale, my opinion is to be more competitve and price your property within the Listed Properties. My feeling is that if your property is priced higher then you will sell those lower priced homes after they see your property. Reason being is that they will get ideas from your home which I'm sure is very nice and pay for the less property and fix up that home on their timetable. In other words, you will sell the other properties in the area. It is basically all about the price now.
I do have one question for you Nc: what is the feedback from your REALTOR on the showings that you have had on the property? Also, what is your timetable for moving? Have you been getting your Trulia weekly updates on your property from your REALTOR and have you looked at the stats for area? I send all my Sellers automatically the Trulia weekly reports so they are informed about who and what is going on with their property and area.... more
