When First Time Home Buyers Feel Intimidated. .

There are very few instances in ones life that is as important as buying your first home. 
You don’t have to do it alone, there are real estate professionals willing to help you achieve this dream. 
Just be sure that you are motivated to be a homeowner and hire an agent whom you feel comfortable with.
Remember, when you are buying a home, the seller has their own agent representing them….you need a buyer’s agent to represent your best interests when buying a home
A first time home buyer is defined as an individual, who has not had an ownership interest in a home prior and has little or no experience in the home buying process
The National Board of Realtors advice to these buyers is to take your time and not rush. There are lots of steps and you need professional help.
One of the first steps to being a first time home buyer is to get their financial house in order, your Real Estate Agent will help you make sure your credit scores are compliant with all the new mortgage lending guidelines. You need a mortgage loan and that is the first focus in the home buying process. 
You need to be aware that the actual cost of buying home is usually much higher than the cost of the home itself, as it includes taxes, interest, and closing costs etc. 
But one thing you should not pay is your own Real Estate Agent, they are paid from the commissions offered by the seller. 
In general, the purchase of any real estate is contingent upon the contract price being at or below a fair market value determined by an appraisal. 
This will assure you that you will not overpay a penny over what the house is worth. 
Your lender send a third party appraiser to make sure the sales price in your contract is exactly what the house is worth or MORE.  
What happens if the house is valued less than the purchase price previously agreed with the seller? 
In this case the lender will not fund the loan to you. If the house’s value is less than what your contract with the seller says..the lender will not give you a loan and subsequently  there will be no sale. 
The seller then will have to reconsider and they have the option to drop the price to the appraised value of dispute it by using another appraiser
This is when your real estate agent comes handy…to protect your best interests and advice you accordingly.

HELP My House is Not Selling

What To Do When Your House Don’t Sell

Here’s a list of important facts we gather from homes that did not sell.

House Expired?

Home Not Selling FORUM

Q & A

What to Do When Your House Doesn’t Sell? 

  • Q: “Should I drop my price and re-list it with my agent once again? A :Often the reason a home doesn’t sell is because it wasn’t properly positioned to attract to the maximum number of buyers. Your house needs to be in “POSITION TO SELL”. So what is the solution? I understand your past agent may be a good agent, but should you considered allowing someone to give you a second opinion on the marketing of your home?  What would your agent do different the second time around?  (see answer “Home Not Selling Forum”)
  • Q: “We had several showings, but not one offer. What are we doing wrong? A:There’s many reason for this. One of them could be that you as a seller like to follow potential buyers around the house to tell them everything that’s great about your place. Don’t be a HOME SELLER KILLER! that’s what your agent is supposed to do for you. All communications should be between your agent and the buyers.  It can also be your price, then you are helping your competition sell their homes instead of selling yours. Is your house cluttered full of stuff, vacation pictures and mug collections? Is your house clean? How is your curb appeal? Is the Internet description of your house matching the actual condition of the house?(see answer “Home Not Selling Forum”)
  • Q:”Should I take it off the market, remodel my kitchen with granite counters and put it back for sale?  A:  It depends, Your best bet is to figure out where you stand by taking stock of your home, what needs repairs, what’s the current market, and nearby sales activity. The answers to this will give you a clearer answer if you should repair your house or not. Is all about the return on investment. (ROI) If you spend $5000 for a new kitchen, can you sell your house for $10,000 more? Are nearby sales supportive in raising your price $10,000 more? You need guidance and a complete assessment before you spend $20,000 to only sell it for $10,000 more.(see answer “Home Not Selling Forum”)
