Why should you USE me and my Team?
If you're a BUYER:
Why ME and MY TEAM? - What's in it 4U
HOUSE HUNTING without a REALTOR?: First of all, the sellers pay our commissions, not the buyers. Think you can save money by house-hunting on your own, and asking the seller for a discount since you're not represented by a Realtor? Guess what? You'll just do the listing agent a favor by doubling her commission! Now she'll get both the buyer's and seller's commissions. You still will not get a discount.
Remember: A Listing Agent's job is to get the BEST price for the SELLER. If the listing agent is representing BOTH the buyer and the seller, the listing agent's agenda is STILL, to get the BEST price for the SELLER.
Your best bet is to be represented by a BUYER's agent who will look out for YOUR BEST interest. You can't be on your own to go over pages and pages of property disclosures. We can point out what to look for. This is what we do. We can access property records and sold comparables in the area to guide you in making the best offer and use these tools to leverage our negotiations with the sellers. The offer is an 8 page document that we are very familiar with. Exit strategies and leveraging are done by how this is filled out. Having us as your buyer's agent, we will fill this out to YOUR advantage. If you have the seller's agent prepare this for you, his/her interest will NOT be for YOU but to the SELLER. Why? Because the higher the price, the larger his/her commission. Our goal is to get you the lowest price because, the lower the price, the happier you will be. The happier you are, the more you'll brag about us (we love free advertising:) ... besides, we're FREE!
Our services: We will show you as many houses as you like until your head spins. We will run comparables to show you what similar houses have sold for in the past few months. We're savvy negotiators and we'll use that to our advantage to negotiate the best price for you. We have several different strategies. We'll tell you if the house is over-priced, under-priced or price just right. We negotiate any additional terms for you including strategies for closing and closing costs. We will be able to tell you the most common things to look for in a house, both inside and out. What to do if the house appraises above or below contract price, what your options are. Where you can lower your closing costs and how. We will save you money, and we will tell you exactly how, where, and why. Negotiation is the key and the leverage comes from having the tools and knowledge to do so. Best of all... IT's FREE.
If you're a SELLER:
You will benefit from our website's high-profile internet exposure and our Channelside office's high visibility location. Visibility is the key when selling. You have to be seen by people wanting to buy your house. Bottom line: it is not enough to just rely on the MLS database anymore. It's a buyer's market and there are just too many inventory. You need a Realtor who can give you an exposure above and beyond the norm.
If you are an FSBO (for sale by owner)... we'll just wish you luck because we will not even go there. We respect that. We were FSBOs once and that is how we got into real estate... But, after 6 months or so, when you really want your house to sell, call us, we'll tell you why we became Realtors and tell you how we can sell your house.
Our services: Our team include an IT / network person, a real estate attorney, a professional photographer, web designer, graphics designer, appraisers, and inspectors. Your house WILL look GREAT on the MLS listings and will stand out over other listings. It's all about marketing, presentation, and use of technology. People will want to look at your house because... it's pretty, it's priced right, and it's presented well. The flyers will be professionally done, and your house will have it's own site optimized on keywords where your house is located. Example: those who search for, "mirabay homes", will find our site and your home will be displayed on that page accordingly. Also, regardless of how little we make we always give 3% to the buyer's agent for maximum showing incentive. We care about you; we like buyer's agents to show your property.
Very personalized service.
Let us do all the leg work for you. You're busy enough as it is. This is what we do full time - We lose sleep so you won't have to.
