Buying or Selling a Home,
. . .
the success of your real estate transaction will be determined
by the skills, experience and dedication of the person that manages
your transaction. That person, (usually a Realtor), will hold
the keys to what is possibly the most significant transaction
of your lifetime, so you must have every confidence in the person
you select to fill that role.
In our do-it-yourself
society, it is natural to just go out and start looking or, if
selling, to just stick a for sale by owner sign out on
the front lawn. It is a tendency that you should resist when dealing
your life savings or your future. You want a professional to guide
you through the process. Your primary task, your most important
decision, is hiring the best person to serve as your personal
representative. Be skeptical of what you are told - check the
often have you told yourself,
. . .
"if I had
only known then what I know now, I would have done things differently?"
That's the idea behind this web site - to help you learn now what
you wouldn't have known until it was too late.
This site does not rely
on flashing lights, pizzazz and hype. At first glance it may appear
limited on selections but each selection represents a key area
of consumer concern and is, or soon to be, deep with helpful information.
So, pick the primary topic that interests you and take the journey
into a variety of related topics. The information is, to the best
of my ability, accurate and is the same information I would provide
to members of my own family. I intend to show you I am worthy
of your business.
A key point:
Do not confuse buying and selling real property
with the sale of personal property.
Real Estate is not a simple transaction like the sale of
a car. Real Estate is an intricate process because
it is a real and permanent asset
that will continue on forever. New real estate cannot be
manufactured, there is only as much as there is. Accordingly,
the ownership of real estate is closely monitored and regulated.
Along with the rights and benefits of
owning real estate,
there are also numerous accountabilities. When the ownership
of a property changes, there are very specific actions,
recordings, disclosures and procedures that must be performed
to assure that all rights and responsibilities are correctly
passed and recorded. Requirements vary from state to state
and by local jurisdiction. The person
managing the transaction must be aware of all the local
requirements and responsibilities and assure that all proper
disclosures are made.
real estate is such an intricate process, nearly
every deal presents challenges that can threaten the success
of the transaction. You (or your agent) must be
able to detect potential challenges early on and keep them
from becoming deal breakers. This is where experience and
problem solving skills pay off big. So, do your homework
(no pun intended) or engage someone that has the knowledge
and experience to manage your transaction.
