Real Estate News in the Shoals
the agent you work with should be experienced and knowledgeable in the
marketplace. If they are familiar with the homes in Shoals market and
they know neighborhood values, they can help you determine which Shoals
properties are fairly priced and in good condition before you start your
real estate search. I works exclusively in the Shoals area, so I know the
territory better than anyone.
you even visit our area, I can email pictures with detailed information
for all Shoals area homes that meet your criteria.
real estate agent you select should offer Buyer Agency to you, which is an
arrangement where the agent actively looks after your best interests, but
usually gets paid by the Seller. This eliminates that age-old question in
real estate transactions, “Just who is my agent representing, me or the
seller?” I offer Buyer Agency to all my homebuyers because it allows us
to actively negotiate the best deal for them.
good Realtor will recommend that you prequalify for a mortgage before you
look at homes to be sure you are looking in the appropriate price range
and to strengthen your bargaining position when you locate the home you
wish to buy. If your offer to the seller includes a letter from your
lender indicating you already qualify for the loan, the seller will take
you more seriously. We have friendly, helpful Shoals area lenders who
offer the most competitive rates and who can usually prequalify you in a
10-minute phone call.
you don’t find the perfect Shoals home right away, you’ll want to
be notified about new homes that come on the market. I am happy to enroll
you in my exclusive Buying Buddy system to email you new Shoals area
listings as they come on the market. I want you to have first pick of the
best properties in the Shoals area!
you find the home you want to buy, make your offer as ‘clean’ as
possible, with only necessary contingencies. The less the seller needs to
worry about, the better. Also, be prepared to compromise on issues like
closing/possession dates in exchange for the seller agreeing to your price
(or vice versa).
