What are the rules, tips, warnings about using electronic transfer payment services (Apple Pay, Venmo, Chase Pay, etc) to pay the Option Fee money to a Seller?

As long at the seller doesn\'t have any issues with electronic transfer payment services, it is probably a better option than the traditional way. This way the payment is documented electronically. Be extra careful in entering the correct information for the seller and follow up to make sure that the seller received the payment. Timing is of essence. If the seller doesn\'t receive the check on time, the buyer could lose their ability to get their earnest money back should they decide to terminate during the option period. So it is very important that this is done within the first three days after the effective date of the contract date. The buyer should state exactly what the money is for in the description section. Send your agent a confirmation after it is done and make sure the agents gets confirmation that it was received.

Rep Agreement with Realtor

As long as he pays the Realtor he signed the rep agreement their agreed upon commission it is fine. Hopefully the agent dotted all of their I\'s and crossed all of their T\'s in order for the document to be held up in court should it come to that point. I would first get with my broker to make sure he/she will back you up on this. Because if they don\'t, it may be a difficult fight to go alone. Not impossible, but challenging.

I have made updates to my home will that change the value now

Possibly. Depending on the updates, what other homes in your area have and don’t have. Say for instance you had Formica countertops and all the others in the neighborhood have granite and you just upgraded to granite, then it would bring the value of your home up closer to market value. However, if recently sold homes in the Neighboorhood don’t have granite, it may not affect the value too much. Now your home is ‘worth’ more than someone is ‘willing to pay’ for it in that neighborhood. Why? Because there are no comps to back up the higher price. The value of a home is based on the other homes similar in size and age (other variables) of your home that have sold in neighborhood typically in the last 6 months. A realtor can help you with determining what things you could do to help you raise the value. Sometimes it may be nothing; Sometimes a few things might help. Your realtor should create a realtor packet for the appraiser that list all the things that were done to the property, that way they can consider those things when appraising the home.

How do i ensure seller pays me 3% Commission?

When the seller has a listing agent to market and list the property, the agent and seller negotiate a price that the seller will get paid for the services. When the seller list the property, they state on the MLS how much they are going to offer the buyers agent for bringing a willing and able buyer to purchase the property. At closing the seller\'s agent/broker pays the buyer\'s agent that amount. The seller doesn\'t pay the buyer\'s agent. It this is a For Sale By Owner, you must make this agreement directly with the seller. Make sure that the seller agrees to pay you otherwise you will have to negotiate this with your buyer. If you signed a buyer\'s representation agreement, there is a place that allows for this scenario. Unless this is in writing, you have no recourse.

What do you think Harvey\'s impact will be on Houston\'s Real Estate Market?

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.

What should buyer do when seller stop responding during counter offer? Home is still on the market and the offer is not far apart at all.

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!

Wow, Matrix really sucks!

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!

How to get into the screen to add anew listing

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!
