Appraisals / Market Analysis

The housing market is changing on a daily basis.

It is important to work with a Realtor in the market in which you are looking to buy a home.

Once you have located a home you are interested in, it is important to understand the current value.

When financing a home, the lender will order an appraisal. However, if you are paying CASH for a home, I will still advise you to pay for an independent appraisal to ensure you are not paying too much for the home.

When preparing an offer we can write the offer subject to a satisfactory appraisal. This will allow you, the buyer, an opportunity to re-negotiate or to cancel the contract if the appraised value does not at least equal the contract sales price.

Short Sales (Buyers Perspective)

There are many topics relating to short sales that I want to discuss, but I will touch on a few different thoughts/ideas.

One thing to understand about short sales is that many facets of the transaction are determined by the Sellers Lender. Such as the final purchase price, timeframe for acceptance of the offer, the closing date to name a few.

It is important to work with a Realtor that understands the process and can walk you step by step.

I have worked with many buyers purchasing short sales. Short sales may also be in a pre-foreclosure or foreclosure situation, depending on the seller’s situation.
