9 Real Estate Myths for the Home Buyer or Home Seller – Day 2

9 Real Estate Myths for the Home Buyer or Home Seller – Day 2

Myth #2: “If I don’t use an Agent I will get a better deal.”
AGAIN…Bad Idea! As a buyer you are not required to pay an agent’s commission that is a cost that in most circumstances is paid by the seller. So don’t think that you NOT having representation is going to save you money! It’s the same cost for you either way…FREE!!! Having your own representation is very beneficial to you. You want someone that is in your corner. Someone that knows what to look for and is going to make sure that no corners are cut or something in the transaction is not handled properly. With that being said…there are a lot of agents out there. Feel free to conduct interviews, ask questions and don’t be afraid to say what is on your mind. If you aren’t feeling like it is going to work be upfront and honest, move on to the next agent. That is your right as a client.

Yours to count on!

Myth #1: Overpricing your home.
Bad idea…for the following reasons: 1: You could miss out on a potential buyer. Had you not overpriced your home, that buyer would be taking a look at your place. 2: Yes, you can lower the price of your home but now your property has been sitting on the market for a while and has become stale and 3: (which goes hand in hand with #2) Now that your house has been sitting on the market for a while when potential buyers do take a look they wonder what is wrong with the house. Why has it been sitting for so long? Are there underlying problems? Pricing your house according to the market and not trying to be overly greedy could actually save you money in the long run.
