I believe people will begin to take a closer look at a homes flood record. More people will shy away from homes that have flooded at all. They will move to areas that Harvey didn\'t flood. Others may buy if the home only flooded during Harvey. This will affect the number of rental properties on the market also. Many homeowners of flooded homes will decide to rent out their home and buy on higher land. Over time though, provided we don\'t get repeats of Harvey, this will slowly fade off of the minds of the general public. A ton of investors are buying these flooded homes. They will rent them out for 5-20 years and sell them at a much higher price when the time is right.
The seller has something that you want. You have to find out if it is worth getting at the price the seller is asking. How badly do you want the home is sometimes a good question to ask yourself, however, you also don\'t want to pay more than the home is worth either. Have your Realtor run the comps. is the asking price in line with the comparables on the market? Has the seller already come down on the price? Some homes on the market are actually priced correctly. Just because a home is listed for the said price doesn\'t always mean that the seller is will \'really\' sell it for less. Sometimes the list price is the seller\'s bottom line. Have your Realtor find out what would make the seller move. Usually, it is, but sometimes it is not always the price. Maybe the seller would be happy if there were less option period days, or more earnest money put down. Find out what makes the seller tick. This is where having a skilled real estate agent who does this every day, can make a difference whether you get this home or not. Ask yourself one question, on all levels, is the asking price worth the home? if the answer is yes, then give the seller what he/she wants. Good Luck!
I agree, learning something new once you have become so accustomed to doing it one way is never easy. I thought exactly the same thing when I started learning it. Personally, I still kind of think fusion was more user-friendly than some features of Matrix, however, the more I work in it, the more it is starting to grow on me. It\'s definitely a lot faster to log into than Fusion. to answer your question though, you actually can have more that one screen at once. just right hold your cursor over the search tab at the top and right click on the desired search and click open a new tab. this will allow you to stay logged into the current session and have more than one search going on at the same time. DO NOT click on another search without doing this because otherwise you will lose the current search you were doing. Good Luck, Hope this helps!
Once you log into member services, go to Matrix. at the top, you will see home, my matrix, Transactions, Add/Edit (Input)...Click Add/Edit (input) . Click Add new inside the input box. It will take you to a screen that lists the property types. Follow the prompts from there on. The items marked in Yellow will be mandatory entries, and if you miss something it will tell you by indicating a red X. It is pretty self-explanatory from there. Good Luck with your New Listing!
Hey man, If you need to borrow some, give me a call, and I will let you borrow some for this weekend. I know how it goes when you are first starting off. Good Luck on the open house! :-)
The option period is dictated by the contract or an amendment to the contract. Unless both parties have agreed to changing the date or ending it early, this cannot happen. There must be an executed amendment to do that. \nDay one of the option period begins the day after both parties have signed the contract and last until the number of days stated on the contract. \"If a buyer wishes to terminate the contract during the Option Period, he/she must notify the seller by 5 p.m. local time (where the property is located) on the day that the Option Period ends.\"
Unfortunately, you learned some very hard and potentially costly lessons here. I am sorry you had to go through this. You do have options. Calling his broker was a very good move. You can ask them to release you from the sellers agreement. If one wasn\'t signed that is a violation. You can also contact TREC Texas Real Estate Commission at www.trec.texas.gov Their number is 512-936-3000. \nHopefully you issues get resolved quickly.
I will assume we are just referring to public open houses as opposed to broker open houses. Because broker open houses are best held during the work week and you usually want to try to get other agents involved with you to do them. \n\nI have found that public Open Houses are best on Sundays after noon. However, a lot of variables come in to play. You might want to check to see if there isn\'t a major event that may affect your turn out; like major sports games and certain holidays. I think the most important thing you can do is to make sure you list the open house on the MLS. It is best to do that as soon as you know you are going to do the open house. You can even schedule them for weeks in advance. Look in the area and see when other agents are also doing an open house. It will help get more people into your open house.
I am actually shocked by the answers I am seeing. Absolutely NOT. The seller is not allowed to deny the buyer an option period. EVER! That being said...some buyers may decide to forgo the option period to better position themselves among the competition. But should always be a decision made by the buyer. Not the seller. The seller can not deny the buyer an option period!
Agents should not attend home inspections. This is almost like a parent who does their child\'s homework for them. Let the inspector do his job. If often takes an inspector up to 3 hours to complete an home inspection and it the agent is present they more than likely will not stay quiet. Distracting an inspector could cause them to miss an important item. They have a lot of things to check that most agents have no idea about. Other than influencing an inspector, I see no value in the agent being present. I do recommend that the buyer meet the inspector at the end so the inspector can review the report with the client and explain what will be in the report. This usually helps the buyer in determining what items are most important in the report. The buyer must play an active role in this. If the agent picks and chooses what they think are the most important items to ask be repaired without the buyer\'s input, this could cause issues after the sale. Agents should be very careful not to micromanage every single aspect of the process and allow buyers to sit back and let things happen. Many buyers do not know their role in the process. It is our jobs to guide them. Not to it all for them. Don\'t do all of the buyer\'s homework. You can go over it with them and help them understand it better. But don\'t do it for them.
