LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMESFOR SALE | 4 DIY Jobs You Must Avoid Doing Around The House

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about 4 DIY Jobs You Must Avoid Doing Around The House

 

 

Perhaps, as a homeowner, you feel overconfident with your skills and talents to do all the repairs in your house. 

The problem is when you decide to sell your house...a home inspector will spot an amateur job faster than fixing a nail hole in the wall with toothpaste!

 

These are the most commons 4 types of repairs where homeowners get into the most trouble...

 

1. Roof Repair - The Perils of Repairing Your Own Roof 

It is always wise to keep in mind that it is a time-consuming and labor-intensive job to replace the roof. It is important to know that you are able to carry out the work on your own only, if you had proper training. If you are not confident that you can do the job, it is better to leave the job to a professional. Roofs should last for 20 - 25 years or more, so if your roof is going to need replacing, and you think you can handle the job...think again, it is important that roof work is done correctly...or you may end up in an emergency room...after your fall.

 

2. Tree Trimming - "Hold my Beer..." 

Big trees can be great, but can also be a pain, specially when you are trying to sell your house, and it is determined that they must be removed. The last thing you want is to get rid of a tree before selling your home and crashing it into your living room.

It is a lot easier to remove a large tree when hiring a professional, they know the exact method they need to use to cut the tree safely. For instance, everyone knows that it is far easier to remove a tree when you make it fall in the right direction... well, sometime trees do not obey the master of the chainsaw operator... a slight miscalculation, and it could cost you thousands of dollars. 

Even if you do manage to cut it correctly, and it falls just where you want, you now have a stump to remove. This is very different to removing a small, normal-sized tree. This is a lot of work and requires the use of heavy equipment, chains and drills, etc... Yes, you can use your wife's SUV to drag it and pull it out but, I’ve seen chains snapping and whipped across the back of the vehicle causing several thousands of dollars in damage. Just call a tree expert and leave it to the professionals.

 

3. Improvement - "Let's Open Up This Room & Remove This Wall" 

Most people don't know about load bearing walls, and they may think they know the best way to handle them....only to find that their ceiling collapsed a few days later. This is dangerous and could be costly, any repairs that will affect the structure of the house should be performed by professionals. If you don't handle these repairs correctly, your whole house is at risk. You also have walls that contain pipes, electrical wiring and ductwork for HVAC, and more. It is recommended to hire professionals who can handle these repairs as well.

 

4. Deciding to Fix Major Plumbing or Electrical Repairs or Installations.

You can do a lot of the simple things yourself, like changing light bulbs, fixing a leaky faucet, or installing a new ceiling fan. However, when it comes to plumbing or wiring, you should call a professional. This is because there is a high risk that you could cause a fire, flood, or injury yourself. It is not worth the risk.

 

Hoping that these tips are able to help you to prepare your house to sell...speaking of which, why not call on me, a true professional to help you sell your house, 

stress-free, for the most money at a timing acceptable to you! 

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed.  

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!

LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMESFOR SALE | What Happens When Your House Does Not Sell?

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about What Happens When Your House Does Not Sell?

 

 

The reason is very simple, you've hired the wrong person for the job.

 

If you hired yourself to sell your house you just need to step in front of a mirror and blame yourself. 

 

The main reason why a house does not sell is: 

 

The person in charge of the sale of the property had the wrong plan. 

 

Choosing the right Real Estate Agent to help you decide on the marketing of your property, 

the pricing of your home and negotiate the sale for the best outcome to your bottom line. This is really one of the

most important steps in the process of selling your home. Wouldn't you agree?

 

Many people debate about the reason(s) homes don't sell,

 

There is only one reason why a home does not sell: The Captain of the Ship... Your Agent. That’s right—the only reason a home does not sell is due to ineffective leadership in the process of selling the home.

 

If your listing has become expired, it is because the Captain of the ship

steered it directly into an iceberg...

 

You don't blame the ship, you don't blame the fuel, and you can't even

blame the weather. The Captain of the ship is the principal reason why

your listing has sunk to the bottom of the ocean and did not sell.

 

Subsequently, every seller’s ability to sell their home rests squarely on

the decision of who he/she has elected to represent the selling of the

house. A real estate agent or themselves if they decided to sell it on

their own.

 

Far too often, when a home does not sell and many real estate agents

point to price alone as the main reason why it did not sell. However, I

believe there is NOT a higher reason why a house did not sell than the

actions of the listing agent themselves, they are the captain of the ship

and in charge of steering.

 

Yes, the price has a huge effect on the selling of a home, while

technically it may be true that any home can sell if the price is lowered

enough, the agent in charge has failed on their leadership to diagnose

the right price based on comprehensive studies of the market and

conversely, advising the seller on the importance of having a price that

matches the house.... based on the present condition of the house.

 

While I understand that there are many other key factors that will

affect the selling of a property, I do feel that the responsibility of the

person in charge of selling must bear the culpability for not

completing it.

 

If you are contemplating on selling your home in the near future, 

I would be happy to apply for the job, 

I've the experience and the know how to have the prefect plan and sell your house at a timing acceptable to you. 

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed.  

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!

LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMESFOR SALE | 4 Differences Between Salespeople and Sales Consultant in Real Estate

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about 4 Differences Between Salespeople and Sales Consultant in Real Estate 

 

Salespeople are the people who make the sale at all cost. Sales consultants help you make the decision of the sale

 

Thinking about my completed transactions over the years, I tend to reflect on my clients and what determined the final outcome of their decisions. 

The fact is that Fiduciary service that you may receive from a true professional is much, much beneficial to you than someone trying to sell you something for pure profit.

 

When hiring a real estate agent, you want a consultant that you can trust for advice and direction in all your real estate needs. 

 

 

What are the 4 big differences between a salesperson and a consultant? 

 

1. A salesperson has a responsibility to sell, a consultant has a responsibility  to the client. A salesperson could be perceived as manipulating the client. A sales consultant has only one responsibility...it is to you.

A consultant  listen and ask great questions. They educate their clients on the best decisions for them and their family. They provide fiduciary services. 

The definition of fiduciary  services is as follows...

"A fiduciary is a person or organization that acts on behalf of another person or persons, putting their clients' interests ahead of their own"

 

2. A sales consultant is a person who specializes in their sales skills. They can negotiate better offers and better repair outcomes during the transaction. Overall, they can negotiate the best results on your behalf...even above of their own

Sales consultants are focused on their needs to fulfill a quota of one more sale during the quarter. 

 

3. Consultants can be proactive in anticipating potential pitfalls. They can make sure a problem doesn't arise at all or be reactive to a problem that has already arisen. They can also do detail market research to find out what can cause potential problems or benefits for our clients.

Sales consultants are focused on their own numbers, number of phone calls and easy transactions. 

 

4. Consultants are about discovery, vision, research, advise, resolve and results 

Salespersons are about fast sales, quick conclusions, risk-taking, pressure and loose ends. 

While a consultant  can make sure a problem doesn't arise at all, a sales person is only reactive to a problem that has already arisen. 

Sales consultants are focused on their own numbers, number of phone calls and easy transactions.   

The best way to describe a sales consultant is with their results and problem-solving skills. 

They have 3 basic "Fiduciary Duties" 

Duty of Care,  Duty of Loyalty and Duty of Obedience.

If you need solutions to any problems that you may be experiencing inside real estate...you'll need a consultant and not a salesperson. 

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed.  

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!

LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMES FOR SALE | Price Negotiation Techniques To Sell Your Home With a Smile

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about Price Negotiation Techniques To Sell Your Home With a Smile

 

 

As a seller, you need to be prepared to accept, counter or reject a potential buyer's initial offer on your home. Understand that buyers

usually expect a back-and-forth negotiation, so most likely, their initial offer will be lower than what they are actually willing to pay. Of course this applies under "normal" market conditions. 

You, with your agent,  need to know this, and it's very important for you to understand it (that is if you want to maximize the sale price of your house) 

Negotiating back-and-forth- between a potential buyer and a seller is like juggling knives, one mistake, and you lose the game. This is why you should let a professional do this for you. 

They know when to push for more money, and they know when to stop and advice you to accept it. It is a skill that takes years to develop...the tone of their

voice, what they say, what they don't say, key questions asked, in many cases buyers are willing to pay a higher price if you counter with a plan that will cost them less money at closing. In this case, you are

amplifying the bottom line, so the buyers can be willing to accept a higher price. 

Just remember, that if buyers aren't excited about the

property you're offering, they will be quickly turned off by hardball

tactics and simply walk away. 

KNOW YOUR PRODUCT

BE PROUD

and KNOW

WHEN TO PUSH!

If you want to win in the high stakes real estate negotiation game.

As always, I’m available for any questions or comments you may have about my blog. 

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed.  

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!

LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMES FOR SALE | What is your Debt To Income Ratio (DTI) When Applying for a Mortgage Loan

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about  What is your Debt To Income Ratio (DTI)  When Applying for a Mortgage Loan

 

 

When applying  for a new mortgage, your DTI ratio will play an important role to help determine how much you can borrow.

 

This blog post will help you calculate your own DTI. This will be useful to you as well as to help determine if applying for a new loan is the best idea for your budget. 

 

DTI is a financial term for debt to income ratio.

 

Your debt to income ratio is calculated using 2 parts: the front end ratio and the back end ratio.

 

The front end ratio is the amount of your monthly income that will go towards the mortgage and other housing expenses. It is the amount that is left after your income has gone towards these expenses.

 

Calculate the front-end ratio by doing the following steps:

 

Add all your total housing expenses, including your mortgage, property taxes, insurance and any HOA dues, and divide it by your gross monthly income.

 

Multiply  that number by 100 to find the front-end ratio. 

 

For example,

 

The monthly mortgage payment is $1,500 including the taxes and insurance. Your HOA dues are $50 per month 

 

$1,550divided by your gross monthly income 

 

the multiply that number by 100  - The total is your front end DTI ratio.

 

If your number is higher than 28%, you may want to wait until you are below the 28% range & be comfortable with your monthly mortgage payment. 

 

You should also know that the back end ratio compares what portion of your income is needed to cover all of your monthly debts plus your mortgage payments. 

 

Steps to calculate your own back end to income ratio"

 

Add up all the monthly bills you have and then make sure to include any other monthly expenses that you have. For example, monthly rent, loan payments, credit card payments, etc.  This will give you a good idea of your total monthly bills.

 

Take the total of your bills and divide it by your income before taxes.

 

Multiply the total by 100 

 

This is the total of your back end DTI ratio

 

Ideally, the total should be below 45% 

 

A DTI ratio above 45% suggests  that you should consider increasing your savings or reducing your spending to maintain this ratio.

 

It is a very important  process to have a pre-qualification with a lender without getting penalized for a credit pull or paying any fees. 

Speak to your REALTOR® to help you get started with this. A "soft" pull of your credit and information about the maximum that you can qualify for can be done in a matter of a few minutes. 

Use a pre-qualification with a lender when you are just starting  in the process of buying your home. 

It should be free and use it as your plan to put you in position to buy a home in the next few months

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed.  

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!

LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMES FOR SALE | How To put a Winning Offer To Buy Your Next Home?

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about How To put a Winning Offer To Buy Your Next Home?  

 

It is time to reveal my secrets as to how we put a winning offer for our clients

As a homebuyer, the more you look at properties the more you are likely to come across a property that you want to purchase. 

As soon as you find "the"  property that you really want to purchase, it's time for your agent to prepare you on putting an offer in.

 

The number one step we follow when we are working with a client is simply, find out if the property still available.

Another question for the listing agent to find out is the number of offers already registered with the particular listing 

Another question that needs to be answered is if the sellers are still accepting offers. 

The most important question where we base our strategy to advise our clients is   "how many offers do they have on hand?" 

The answer to this question will determine the strategy of your offer.

 

When the seller has received your offer they will include a pre-approval letter that is typically based on your application to your lender and any contingencies you may want to include inside your offer.

 

Contingencies are necessary to make sure that the buyer is not taking a risk with the purchase of a property that they have not inspected, appraised for value, financing approval completed or any particular reason that may cost you a lot of money when purchasing the property. 

 

Contingencies are there to protect you as the buyer. 

 

Along the offer, the EMD (Earnest Money Deposit) is necessary for your offer to be considered. 

 

Your agent will work with you to determine overall the best strategy for your offer. 

 

If the seller rejects your offer, you can either walk away at this point and get your deposit money back, accept a counter offer, or make a counter offer of your own.

Just remember,

If you are looking to buy a home, a good agent will help you put in a competitive offer so that you don’t have to worry about losing the house of your choice. 

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed. 

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!

LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMES FOR SALE | 3 TIPS: Preparing Your House To Sell In The Summer

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about 3 TIPS: Preparing Your House To Sell In The Summer

 

 

Summer is a great time to sell your home. The weather is warmer, and buyers are more inclined to spend time in the sun. This is a good time to make your home more attractive to potential buyers starting from the outside.

 

When people are looking for a home in hot weather, It means that people will be looking for houses to buy no matter what. While others are taking vacations and relaxing at the beach, serious buyers are hard at work looking for the right home to purchase. People who are  looking for home is the Summer are more likely to be serious buyers 

 

To prepare your home to sell, add these three strategies to ensure your property is discovered in a crowded, frantic hot market.

 

3 TIPS  Preparing Your House To Sell In The Summer

 

#1  Exterior Showcasing of your house. - How to Get the Best Results

If you are looking to sell your home during the busy summer selling season, you should take time to spruce up the outside of your home.

Curb appeal counts and during the hot summer months, the greenery combined with flowers makes a great impression on home buyers

 

#2 Invest Time & Money Creating The Best  Curb Appeal For Your House

From the moment the prospective buyers drive up to your property they are judging your home. I've seen personally when buyers don't even bother to come inside because they have already made up their

mind at a first glance. Your front yard, your entrance and every single room or space in a home should be a “wow” of some sort, providing something that is beyond what’s expected to the prospective

buyer. First impressions apply to each and every single room or space in a home as well.

 

#3  Pricing Your Home to Sell 

Know the facts and study it carefully. The pricing of your home should not be set on hope, automatic computerized CMA's and/or false homeowner illusions. The price of your home should be set by

square foot comparisons, current local market conditions, major improvements or lack of, pending sales, sold comps and the number of similar active listings in the area. 

You need guidance, advice and direction from an experienced professional to set the right price to sell, follow their advice and don't look back.

 

When selling your home in the summer, you need to ensure it is clean, fresh, comfortable and priced reasonably. 

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed. 

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!

LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMES FOR SALE | How you can use the appraisal gap to help you buy a house with competing offers?

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about How you can use the appraisal gap to help you buy a house with competing offers? 

 

What's an Appraisal? 

 

An appraisal is a valuation of a property by a licensed real estate appraiser. A mortgage lender hires an appraiser for their mortgage application to determine the value of the property

The bank will lend money to the buyer for the purchase of the house, assuming the property is valued at a certain price. The bank will take the house as collateral for the loan.

Mortgage lenders use appraisers to assess what the value of a property… to see if it is worth enough to lend money to buy. 

This helps to safeguard the bank from lending too much money to a property which is not worth the contract price.

 

 

You may have different opinions on the value of a property. You can find out how much it is worth by getting different estimates from three different professionals.

An appraiser is someone who determines the current market value of a property by using  recently sold properties to help determine a home's value. Those are called "comparables"

They break down the components of each comparable property sold to arrive at an estimated value of the home.

 

How do Appraisal Contingencies Work When You're Purchasing a Home?

 

If the home appraises at a lower value than expected, the buyer and lender can withdraw from the contract. This is a great way to get out of a contract if you do not have the money to buy the property.

Remember, the property must appraise for the value of the purchase price or higher.

 

What is an Appraisal Gap Clause, and How Does It Work?

The buyer will pay for the gap between the contract price and the appraised value.

If the property appraises for less value, then the purchaser must pay the difference

 

How you can use the appraisal gap to help you buy a house? 

If you are looking to buy a home, you may want to take advantage of this strategy when you have several competing offers. 

On a  “seller’s market”, homes are in high demand and sellers are eager to unload their properties for the highest price.

Your offer is more valuable to them because it assures them that they could get more money than their house is worth.

A buyer can make an offer with a lower purchase price, but the offer is enticing because of the appraisal gap. 

The buyer does not have to guarantee that they will pay for "ALL" the difference, you can put a "stop gap" of $5,000 for example 

What this allows you to do is getting your offer accepted amongst other offers by enticing the seller's with more money.

Other offers may be higher than yours, but yours gives them a guarantee that they will receive more money if the house's value is less.

 

When you buy a house, it is best that you talk to an experienced agent to give you the extra edge to get your offer accepted. 

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed. 

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!

LAS VEGAS MILLION DOLLAR HOMES FOR SALE | Interest Rates are rising – Is this a good time to buy a home?

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home. 

 

Today, we'll talk about Interest Rates are rising – Is this a good time to buy a home?

 

 

Everyone knows, overall, home prices have been rising together with interest rates. This has been a moving market, and it is representative of our local economy and national financial trends.

 

Is this a good time to buy a home?

 

The answer will always be depending on your current situation. If you are renting, essentially you are paying 100% to your landlord and paying 6% even 7% for a mortgage still a better move for you.

 

While the mortgage rate has risen, it is still not unreasonable a higher percent interest on your home loan and let me tell you why?

 

At a recent point in time, several months ago, interest rates were around 3.5% but are now around 5.5%, so the rate has risen much faster than expected. But, at some point, this too shall pass, and the market will stabilize with a tendency to normalcy once again.

 

The 30 year fixed rate has been below 4 percent. After the pandemic hit, the 30-year fixed rate stayed around the same for a few months. This is because the Federal Reserve has made a big push to keep rates low to avoid a recession. 

 

Today, the Fed will have to increase them again and hope that our economy will be able to jump over our current economic conditions for more stability on prices.

 

In the last year, inflation began to rise due to a number of reasons. This pushed the Federal Reserve to begin raising interest rates to stop the inflationary cycle. The Federal Reserve's decision to increase interest rates has led to higher mortgage rates. Just last week, the average interest rate for 30-year, fixed-rate, mortgages with balances of $647,200 or less increased to 5.65 percent from 5.40 percent.

 

 In some cases, homebuyers may want to look at different housing options such as condos or townhomes to offset high interest rates, but one thing is for certain, the interest rates of a monthly mortgage are always much better than paying 100% or a monthly payment to a landlord

 

A good real estate agent will help you ask the right questions before buying a home. For example, You may be paying attention to the interest rates when you should be asking yourself"

 

"How much home should I buy, given all of my short and long-term goals and objectives?"

 

…and that’s when you need a guidance from a true real estate professional

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed. 

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!
