Real Estate Guidance
For many folks, a home is their largest purchase or asset. There's also Financing Implications for most purchases. Getting PreApproved for a loan is a must these days. After you find the right one, there are many County, City, Zoning, and Tax implications that affect what you can do with that home. It often helps to verify the limits and the property condition before removing your contingencies and proceeding to close escrow.
Looking to Buy?
When you are looking to buy a home, timing is everything.....I can help you with Timing by setting up an autobot, with your specific criteria, to send you an email as new listings come on the market, directly from Multiple Listing Service (MLS), the BEST Source for real new listings used by professional Realtors. This allows you to promptly determine if each listing is a Yes, No or Maybe to help assure the right one doesn't get away. FREE
Looking to Sell?
When selling a home, marketing is (almost) everything. It's important to price your property to sell and hire a Realtor with a robust marketing program. The more prospective buyers see your listing, the more likely you are to quickly get an offer. The longer the place is on the market, the lower the final selling price will be. I use a very robust Marketing program with Virtual Tours and other tools to attract buyer attention. Please contact me for a formal market analysis of your home that considers it's unique features and location, using data that an appraiser would use. FREE.
Have you clarified your goal? Looking to buy a vacation home? retirement home? rental property? Fix and flip? In California, Prop 13 affects Property taxes and, with Prop 60/90, folks over 55 can transfer their original value to a new house under certain circumstances. For those with Rental Properties, a 1031 exchange is available on the Federal tax level. These tax rules affect your cost and profitability.
