Real Estate Tips 13 Jan 2017
It is harder for buyers to get their offers accepted in a seller’s market. Yajnesh Rai of Team Yaj – Keller Williams Realty shares a series of tips for buyers on Radio De Hotties’ Pam Pam Show. Here are tip number 3 & 4
3. Connecting with the seller – Find out through MLS, seller’s agent, your agent, looking at pictures or the way home is decorated, about the sellers and what they may like or dislike. Write and personalized (handwritten is better), with one or two nice pictures of you and your family, doing things that may click with the sellers. Also writing about something to them based on your research. It is best to keep away from discussing finances, politics or religion in this letter. Several times we have our offer accepted which was not necessarily the top offer but the seller felt good about the buyers from the letter.
4. Make a list of Must Haves and Nice to Haves – Must haves are things in a homes that you cannot live without and Nice to haves are… just that. Have a clarity of what is nice to have and what is must have and being in-sync between/among the buying party helps a lot during decision making. When there is seller’s market and it is becoming harder to get properties that you like at the right price, it becomes necessary to discount some of the nice to haves to get a property that will work for your family. And having a clarity upfront save a lot of time and effort and money along the way.
More tips to be shared on the Pam Pam show and on this blog.
