You might think that the only way to win a house is by putting in the highest offer. But sometimes winning a real estate bidding way can come down to three other factors 🏠

 

1️⃣ Are you pre-approved for a mortgage?

A pre-approval letter states that a lender is willing to lend money up to a certain amount. By having this letter, you can show the seller that you’re a qualified and serious buyer.

 

2️⃣ Are you willing to go in with an all-cash offer?

Having cash on hand means that mortgage companies don’t need to get involved, and you don’t have to worry about appraisals. It shows the seller that you are ready to buy the house today.

 

3️⃣ Can you provide a flexible timeline?

Sometimes sellers need more or less time in the home rather than the typical 30-day closing period. If you are not in a rush to move, be flexible with your closing timeline. This can go a long way in a bidding war, especially if competing offers come in with hard deadlines.

It is no secret that our surroundings can affect our mood so why not upgrade and change your routine to be happier in your home. 🏠

 

✨ Create a habit of routine cleaning. A clean home is not only better for your overall health and well-being, but it also has a positive impact on our mood.

 

✨ Designate a space for mind and body practices. There is nothing better than the sense of calmness that washes over you when you are relaxed. Find a space in your home, no matter how small, and designate it as your own private area to practice mindfulness.

 

✨ Reduce monthly bills with LED light bulbs. These days, we’re currently spending more time at home so you probably have your lights on more, which, therefore, is causing an increase in your energy bills. An increase in monthly bills can negatively impact the way you feel about your home.

 

What are some other habits or upgrades you like to do to be happier in your home? ⬇️

Frequently Asked Friday: What does a debt-to-income ratio mean? 💰

 

This is an important part of your overall financial health. Lenders use these ratios to help determine the risk associated with you taking on another type of payment. 👏 

 

1️⃣ The first number is the percentage of your gross monthly income that you could comfortably afford to spend on your housing payment. It includes escrow for taxes and insurance.

 

2️⃣ The second number represents the percentage of your gross monthly income that should be spent on all long-term monthly debts combined.

🏠 TEN HOME HACKS THAT CAN IMPROVE YOUR HOME LIFE 🏠

Scroll or tap through to read each one! Which one of these tips were your favorite? ⬇️

 


(if you’d like to post the tips, you can here)

✨ Have a “no shoes in the house” rule.

✨ Make to-do lists for each room.

✨ Create a central command center.

✨ Put things away immediately instead of putting them down.

✨ Do an annual coat drive every fall.

✨ Clean your garbage disposal with baking soda and vinegar.

Having the right lighting in your home is important. It can not only improve the way your home looks and feels, but it can increase the overall value of your home. 

 

Here are three reasons on how recessed lighting can increase your home value. 💡

 

✨ Your listing will see more views. More views means more potential buyers to help sell your home quicker.

 

✨ Your home may sell above the list price. Recessed lighting is on the top of the list for most valuable home improvement trends, and so, homes with this feature sell above list price on average.

 

✨ Recessed lighting can increase functionality and improve the look of any room.

Frequently Asked Friday: Is a comparative market analysis provided when selling a home? 🏠

 

📈 A comparative market analysis is one of the best ways of determining the value of your home. It works by comparing recent sales of similar properties in the neighborhood to come up with an estimate.

 

👉Most realtors will conduct a CMA on your property for free, often before they meet you in person.

 

What is more important than a CMA? The expertise from me as your agent. 

 

Because a CMA is computer generated and doesn’t pull in current market factors, I’ll run the appropriate comparables to your home, so you know what it is worth.

In real estate, no two transactions are the same, and so different challenges have to be overcome while you’re in the process of selling a home. 🏠

 

👉Challenge #1 – Handling emotions.

There are many emotions that can come with selling a home – excitement, nervousness, stress…It isn’t uncommon for a homeowner to have seller’s remorse so it is important to make certain that you want to truly sell your home.

 

👉Challenge #2 – Pricing the home.

Pricing real estate is a science that takes experience and practice to “master.” The price that a home enters the market at is very important as you want to ensure it gets lots of activities and showings the first week or two it has been listed.

 

👉Challenge #3 – Maintaining a “show ready” home.

Preparing a home for showings can be time consuming and a challenge for any homeowner. Keep your home de-cluttered and countertops clean throughout the week to minimize the tasks you have to do to stage your home.

 

Have you faced these challenges? What other challenges have you overcome? ⬇️

👉TITLE is a bundle of rights in a piece of property.
