This past week my three month old daughter began giggling and laughing at different things. One of things I have been working with her on is playing peek-a-boo. Now when I play peek-a-boo and surprise her, her face lights up and she smiles large. You can see below how much she loves getting surprised by it.
There are other types of surprises we may experience in life that are just wonderful. Things like a surprise Birthday Party, being surprised you are becoming a grandparent, or someone surprising you with a gift. However in real estate, surprises are not always a good thing.
With the many changes that have taken place in real estate over the past few years, just about every aspect of either buying or selling property has changed. That is why it is crucial to work with a Real Estate Professional whenever you are participating in any type of transaction regarding real estate.
I know what you are thinking..."Jeremy, I have bought and sold several homes on my own and never have used a Real Estate Agent, why should I start now?" Great question! Let me share a few examples of how over the past few years we have been able to help both buyers and sellers to avoid a transaction falling apart.
First, the Story of a Buyers dilemma... Read Here! These buyers were so glad to have a Real Estate Agent representing them. If they didn't have that, they would have either paid an additonal few thousand dollars or ended up walking away from a great home. But, by having a Real Estate Agent represent them, when the surprise came up, they did not panic, they allowed the professional to do their job.
Secondly, The Horror Story of My Seller...Read Here! Sadly, these sellers had to learn the hard way that sometimes selling your home FSBO can cost you more than a real estate commission. Luckily for them, we were able to sell the property quickly and easily for them. If we had been involved in the original deal, we would have been able to press for letters from the lender to make sure the buyer was capable of buying the home before the seller moved everything to storage, rented an apartment and moved out of their home while waiting for their new house to be built.
These are just two examples of surprises that were or could have been avoided if the buyer & seller use a Real Estate Professional to assist them in the transaction.
