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.
Just as already said, as long as interior paint meets all conditions for habitability, they do not have to paint. General rule of thumb, if it works and not broken, the landlord does not have to fix it. One can probably argue the condition of the interior paint, however, that should have been discussed prior to moving into the space. It should have been negotiated in the lease. If not, you may not get far with your landlord on this issue.
I would be happy to help you. Please contact me and let me know what your needs are. If I can not help you personally, I can help you find someone who can.
It really depends on the market area, the home, and many other factors. Find a Realtor® in your area who can offer you a comparative market analysis. Weigh the pros and cons on paper for both options. Understand the current market. Your best source for this would be a Realtor®. You may even get two or three agents to weigh in on your current circumstances to come to an educated decision. Good Luck!
Just like a defendant in court, every buyer is allowed to their own representation. There is no rule that states a deadline for when they can get that representation. The buyer is allowed to have his own agent. It should be made clear up front how much, if any, you intend on paying that buyers agent. The buyer and the agent should be made aware of this from the beginning. Please understand that bringing you the buyer is not the only role of the buyers agent. Often times agents actually help to keep the transaction together and help to avoid pitfalls that might cause it to fall apart. They do a lot behind the scenes that often times, had they not been there, the transaction might have never happened in the first place. If you truly want to get the most money in the least amount of time, at least offer to pay the agent to brings or represents a buyer. It will give the buyer peace of mind and give you more validity as an honest seller with nothing to hide.
The most important take away from this is to do your own research. There are tons of good agents out there. There is also a difference between a real estate agent and a Realtor®. Research that difference because not all real estate agents are Realtors®. Like any service industry, there are bad apples out there; however, I believe that most agents are out for your best interest. Since your last agent is not accessible, ask friends, neighbors, relatives, or co-workers to give you referrals of agents they have had an good experience with and feel comfortable referring to you. Look around the neighborhood for real estate signs of agents. This means that they have some knowledge of your area and may even have a buyer for your home already. Go to open houses and speak to agents face to face. Referrals from another agent can be a smart move, especially if you don''t know many people in the area. Agents love getting referrals, so if they are good, they will strive to make their referral sources very happy! Look online for agents who have a good website presence. Most buyers search the internet for real estate, so a good web presence is important.
Most importantly, You want someone who you feel you can get along with. You will be "married" to this person for at least a month or possibly longer. If you don''t connect with them then it may not work out. Often times agents become long lasting friends who you may call on to answer many of your real estate questions for years to come. Finding someone you can trust and actually like as a person is probably the most important criteria in searching for a Realtor®.
That is a great video with nice upbeat music. Now it just needs to show different people having fun!
It is all about developing a relationship; just like with any other client. Investors are in it to make money. If you can offer them a reason to work with you over other agents. You can get their business. The more you look for good investments, the better you will get at it. Bring value to the table, and they will keep coming back to you.
