From time to time, I am reminded that what I do is important. How I do it, and my knowledge and experience is even MORE important and valuable. I have Friends who called me about representing them. They were approached by someone wanting to by their house, without representation. They negotiated a price without the assistance of a Real Estate Professional, which potentially lost them approximately $6,500.00 net.
They followed that up questions about costs and fees. Unfortunately, I do not know what else was discussed or negotiated. We talked a little about title/escrow fees, but also bank fees and HOA fees. The HOA fees are $1,398.00, some of which are Seller mandated (State Law). What about Seller concessions, closing costs assistance and a home warranty.
I am glad they called when they did. I can now step in, and work as their advocate, representing their best interests. Real Estate in this day and age, is no longer a handshake proposition!
I am experienced, I am knowledgeable, and I provide a valuable service. Done correctly, real estate is a complex and risky adventure. Not everyone can just "do" real estate, otherwise everyone would! Don't risk one of the most valuable possessions you own. Call a professional!
