If you're thinking about listing your home for sale, here are my ideas for how to prepare your home to sell quickly and for the most money possible:
1. Clear the clutter. Take this time to get rid of items in your home that no longer serve a purpose to you. You can do this by going through all the old boxes from your garage and calling your favorite donation centers to come and pick up those items. You should also clean out your junk drawers and closets that just seem to collect all the spare ‘stuff’ you don’t want to take to your new home. If you do all this, you’ll feel clean and fresh by the time it comes to list your home.
2. Depersonalize. I know that your family photos are so important to you, but when you’re listing your home, the buyers need ...

3 Things To Avoid at the Close of Escrow

Make sure you don’t fall into these pitfalls at the close of escrow.

Today I’ll go over three common escrow pitfalls that we want you to avoid:
1. Credit. The credit that got you approved needs to be the same as when you close. You generally don't want to make any big purchases, pay anything off, or make large deposits. Talk to your lender to make sure that it won’t affect your ability to close escrow. Right before closing, the lender will be doing another credit verification.
2. Timelines. There are contractual timelines built into your agreement to purchase the home. Lenders also have deadlines for information needed to finish the transaction.You need to be very responsive to any requested information in order to close escrow on time. It will save you money, time, and stress.
3. Wire fraud. Pay attention if you get a request ...

How to Handle 2 Simultaneous Transactions

Here’s my advice for buying and selling at the same time.

If you currently own a home and want to sell it so that you can buy another home, how do you coordinate both transactions? Today I’ll share my advice about how to undergo this process.
First of all, sit down with your agent to make a plan. With this strong seller’s market, we have more leverage when it comes to managing your closing date as a seller. On the buying side, things can be more challenging when competing with multiple offers, especially when the purchase is contingent on the sale of your home.


"We’re experienced with coordinating sales and have the resources and processes in place to help reduce your stress."

The best strategy largely depends on your personal circumstances. Is there somewhere you can temporarily move after you sell your current ho ...

Which Is Better for You: Resale or New Construction?

Here’s how resale homes and new construction differ.
Buying a home? Click here to start your new home searchSelling a home? Click here for an instant home value check 

Which is better: resale homes or new construction? The answer depends on your situation.
 
With resale homes, you know that they’re ready to move into right now. You don’t have to wait for them to be built. They have window coverings, upgrades, and have been personalized. They also have landscaping (for the most part), and some resale homes have custom backyards with water features, pools, or fire pits. On top of that, they’re located in established neighborhoods with overgrown trees, and some come with appliances already installed.
That said, buying a resale home means you’ll be paying over market value and competing with other offers. With new construction homes, the price is the price. Once the lot is released and you’re locked in, that’s the pri ...

The Difference Between Cash Offers & Financed Offers

Here’s how cash offers and financed offers are different from each other.
Buying a home? Click here to start your new home searchSelling a home? Click here for an instant home value check 

What’s the difference between a cash offer and a financed offer? There is no black-and-white answer. We judge each offer by its own merit, and the bottom line is that once a transaction closes escrow, the seller gets their money regardless of how it got there. There are many more details inside each offer that we have to review and explain because certain terms in a cash offer can make it less desirable than a financed offer (e.g., contingencies or timelines, etc.).
Cash offers get the benefit of the doubt in this market, where we’re seeing multiple-offer situations and prices being bid upward. This brings up the possibility that a home might not appraise for its purchase price, but with a cash offer sellers don’t have to worry about that because there i ...
