How to Prepare Your Home as a Product for Market

The 6 D’s of a Quick Home Sale

Preparing your home as a product for market is very different than living in your home. You must remove your emotion from the deal and look on it as a business proposition. If you’re not ready to do that, it’s best to wait and not put your house on the market. Think you’re ready?

Setting the stage for a home sale means preparing your home to appeal to the broadest market. Here are the 6 D’s to a quick home sale:

Declutter

You’ll be packing to move anyway, so it’s time to put away anything you wouldn’t find an a 4 star hotel room. That means you must walk around every room beginning from the left side of the door and sweeping back around to the right side of the door removing items are visually conflicting or create a sense of having no space. It’s time to put away anything that catches dust and doesn’t add to the attitude or identity of the room. Don’t forget to organize and purge the pantry, linen closets and garage.

Decorate

Each room should be decorated in a way that creates an identity for the intended space. You may have used the dining room for an office, but it’s important for a buyer to see the dining room decorated as a dining room. The decor should be as neutral as possible and not visually distracting. Neutral doesn’t always mean beige! The rule of 60-30- 10 applies. 60 % is a dominant color, 30% is the secondary color, and 10% is the accent color.

Consult the color wheel to select your palette. Keep trendy colors to the 10 percent; think throw pillows, table top decor or towel sets. White space also applies to decor. White ceilings and furnishings can make a dark room feel spacious and rich, yet intimate. Be sure adjoining rooms have complementary patterns and color palettes.
Add lighting where needed.

Deep Clean

Have your property deep cleaned. Don’t forget to change HVAC filters and have siding pressure washed. Buyers perceive a dirty house to have been ignored behind the scenes, such as plumbing, electrical, and heating and cooling systems.

Depersonalize and Demilitarize

Put away all family pictures & portraits. You can’t have buyers coming in and say to themselves, ‘Aww, we can’t make this sweet little family move!’ Set the stage for inviting buyers to picture themselves in your space. Buyers must feel that they only need to carry in their suitcases!
Remove all religious items and die-hard fan memorabilia. The home purchase is first made with emotions, then backed up with logic and secured with finances. I was once showing a house to a buyer and when we arrived in the bonus room filled with fan memorabilia, he remarked that he could not buy a house owned by a fan of his biggest college rival.

Demystify

Don’t have buyers shaking their heads when they leave your property. All homes will get a nickname. A personal favorite was ‘the crayon house.’ From the view from the kitchen to the great room to the second floor loft, each wall had a different color! It was very distracting for the buyer to evaluate the house as a whole because of that first impression visual impact and attitude of the crayon/toy box.
Buyers are usually in the car seeing several similar homes a day in the same price range. If your list price does not measure up to everything else that was seen in regard to size, condition and materials, it will confuse the buyer who will mentally put your listing aside and your property will not be seriously considered.

SOLD!

Staged homes sell faster and for more money.

Avoid Foreclosure – AND the Tax Man

stop-foreclosure1Have you ever wondered why some foreclosures sit on the market for what seems like forever and others are foreclosed on right away? The homeowner who has diligently paid their mortgage on time year after year and have built up equity in their home are foreclosed on first! The bank sees the value and plans to make back their money AND get your equity when they auction off your home.

Other homeowners who have little or no equity are allowed to remain in the home without payment sometimes for years!  Banks know they will reduce the incidences of vandalism and have someone who may keep up the home for free if they are allowed to remain.  It also allows the market to appreciate over that time so that a future sale will be more profitable for the bank.

Then, if that’s not enough, the IRS will charge you income tax on the loan amount

tax man in the form of a 1099 Miscellaneous. Your foreclosed loan is taxed as earned income in that single tax year!

Unfortunately sellers lose their home and their equity to banks all the time and then have the double jeopardy of having to pay an additional tax in already distressed situation.

You have options the bank doesn’t want you to know about.  I can help. Call me or go online here and answer a few questions, and I’ll work with you to get what you want for your home and get you moving forward again. I am a REALTOR®, but this is not about listing your home for sale.  I am also an investor and this is about getting you what you want for your house, helping you prevent foreclosure and the taxman. Don’t wait until you’re more than two to three months behind.  Then, it’s much harder to help you get what you want for your house.

Here’s a testimonial from a loyal fan:

‘Chrystal, your experience and professionalism helped me prevail through difficult times in the listing and sale of my long-time family home.

From creating professional marketing materials including onsite brochures, online photo tour, and email blasts, promotion of my listing through TwitterFacebookLinkedIn and YouTube.com, to showing the house 6 of the 24 times it was shown, you were on the job.

After the property was under contract, your previous experience and successful resolution of similar problems discovered during the home inspections helped me work through a difficult transaction that included a breakdown in communications, unexpected property conditions and lender required repairs, and keeping the buyer on track with lending requirements and in love with the house until closing.

I couldn’t have done it without you.  It’s my pleasure to recommend your real estate services to everyone I know.’

The Safari Group Launches New Foreclosure Help Division

CHARLOTTE, NC – Nov 01, 2014 – REALTOR® Chrystal Safari Roy, Broker in Charge, and The Safari Group of Charlotte, NC are proud to announce the addition of a new foreclosure relief division to their real estate practice earlier this month. Carolinas Foreclosure Help division expands the practice due to its continued growth and commitment in delivering quality customer service combined with the latest strategies to assist home owners in the sale of their homes and to assist new home buyers in purchasing homes at a great value in the Charlotte, Fort Mill, Waxhaw and Weddington areas for a growing number of clients.

Chrystal Roy is owner of the local boutique real estate firm and has been a REALTOR® for 14 years practicing real estate in the Charlotte Metro area for that time.  She is licensed in North and South Carolina. The Safari Group is a full service brokerage firm specializing in listings, sales, tenant procurement and rental portfolio development.  Her mission with the new division follows years of experience with clients who attempted to avoid foreclosure on their own, falling victim to the banks’ superior knowledge and know-how, is to educate customers and clients on all aspects of real options for home owners who are in distress leading to a smoother transition from a home owner at risk of foreclosure, to avoiding foreclosure and the credit and tax liability that comes with it.  In addition to pre-foreclosure counseling, Mrs. Roy will make recommendations on approaches to renewed home ownership as a part of the client’s recommended recovery plan.

The Safari Group’s website, TheSafariGroup.com, and its associated blog include information on how customers can, not just get the most out of their financial situation, but avoid the decade-long stigma of foreclosure and also how they can help themselves speed up credit recovery times.

“I’m happy to be part of debt relief and recovery in the Charlotte and surrounding areas, and to be part of Mr. and Mrs. Homeowners’ solution to foreclosure at such a difficult time for their families,” said Mrs. Roy. “In my years of experience, there’s never been such an advocate for homeowners with approaches that both avoid foreclosure for the homeowner and provide a quick opportunity for returning to home ownership.”

What to Expect When You’re Expecting — To Buy Your First Home

From conception to delivery there are many steps and stages when purchasing your first home, whether it’s a resale or new construction.

Buyer or Dreamer?

Shopping Woman Shocked Over PriceOnce you decide you no longer want to live with good old mom and dad, or pay rent, you must prepare yourself to become true buyer and future homeowner. The first step is to determine your financial position. If you live with mom and dad, take 6 months to pay yourself the amount you would be paying in a mortgage. It does two things: it helps you build up savings, and it helps you overcome the sticker shock of having to pay your own way.

Show Me the Money

Do you have enough money set aside for a down payment? The most common amount needed is 3.5% of your purchase price (for an FHA loan). There will also be what are called closing costs to complete your loan and home inspection processes, and to close the deal at the attorney’s office. Closing costs run about three and a half percent of the purchase price. Before you determine that this is too much for you, ask your home-buying experienced family, friends and coworkers about a savvy REALTOR® who can work with you in your area who will negotiate that the seller pay your closing costs.

Your TEAM

Your REALTOR® has preferred vendors and can recommend lenders to help you obtain your Partnership-page-picturegoal. My lending analogy is this: if you have some credit issues or are self-employed or earn commission with fewer than 24 months in that job and on a tax return, you may need a Big Mac and you can only get that from one place. But if your credit scores are high and you’ve been employed in the same field for over 6 months earning wages or a salary, a taco may be right for you.  You can get that anywhere from a fine restaurant with a real Mexican chef, or you could go to Jack in the Box and order that thing in a taco shell with meat and American cheese called a taco. Once you’ve discovered your lender needs and become pre-qualified by reputable, preferably local lender, you have become a potential home buyer.

The Dreamy Home
Next, clearly outlined the preferences you have in a home within your price range establish by your lender with your REALTOR®. Select the top 5 homes you prefer and enjoy shopping!
Once you’ve discovered your top pick, it’s time to develop an offer. Your Realtor should discuss with you the pros and cons of what you’re thinking. A strong offer is a high percentage of list price, has no contingencies, is offered by well qualified candidate working with a local lender with whom the realtor has great experience, and can close in a short period of time. There will be several documents that you will sign that authorized your broker to represent you and to direct the seller to pay the buyer agent fee. Additional documents include actual Offer to Purchase which becomes a contract when all parties agree on the terms. This document is accompanied by earnest moneuyyour pre-qualification letter and an earnest money deposit. The earnest money deposit is your ‘skin in the game’ in exchange for the seller taking his house off the market while you begin inspections and so on, and usually runs between $500 to $1000 dollars, depending upon the price of the house. There may also the negotiations to request a Due Diligence Fee from the buyer that is not refunded if you fail to close on your purchase. Once you and the seller agreed to all the terms, the offer becomes a contract.

Congratulations! You have just purchased your new home! Now your broker has 180 tasks to perform behind the scenes to get you to an on-time closing.

From Contract to Close
Your broker will begin ordering inspections such as the termite and home inspections and any inspectionothers if indicated during those inspections. Focusing on the discovery of any major defects, you may prepare a request for repair proposal for the seller.
You’re also coordinating with your lender to get him several documents and other pieces of information. Be sure to respond to his requests as soon as possible to keep you on schedule to close on time
Your broker will recommend looking into homeowner’s insurance and provide any HOA documents, if indicated, for review.
7 to 10 days from closing you should have a loan commitment letter from your lender. Now is time to transfer utilities into your name and forward your mail beginning the day of closing!

Advice About Advice

Sure, the internet, the media, Uncle Herman, your coworkers, and dear old mom and dad have opinions about real estate, and your nearest and dearest have purchased homes and know about the process, but unless they are closing homes hundreds of times a year in your market, there’s no way that they are up to date on changing guidelines, trends and the latest market analysis. Hear what they have to say, but let your real estate professional be your guide.

How to Get a Mortgage Loan with Limited Credit

It’s difficult, but not impossible, to get a mortgage loan with limited credit. Image

YOUR HISTORY

Full application must be provided to your loan officer to request the exception from the underwriter, who provides a pre-qualification letter to submit to the builder or seller. You must have had excellent rental history for the past 12 months with no late payments to a verifiable source who can provide a Verification of Rent Form. Please make sure you always pay with traceable funds such as money order or check, even if it’s to good ole mom and dad.

ALTERNATE TRADE LINES

There must be one other trade line on your credit report that’s reporting to the credit agencies to show that you are paying youImager bills on time, such as an auto loan in your name. An additional 2 alternate lines of trade may also be necessary, such as gas, electric or other utilities that are in your name and paid on time.

LIMITED, BUT NOT BAD, CREDIT

The caveat is that although you have limited credit, it must also be good. There can be no medical collections, no foreclosure, no bankruptcy, no other collections and no judgements on your credit report to qualify. ImageWhen all is said and done, you’ll qualify for market interest rate with having a middle credit score of just 600. With all these conditions met, you would qualify for an FHA loan. The FHA loan will include PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance), but if you play your cards right, within 2 years with a steady rate of employment and paying your bills on time, you would qualify to refinance with a Conventional loan and eliminate the PMI.  For help with connecting to the right lending officer who can get you moving in the right direction, give me a call.  704.562.1030

Don’t Low Ball That Offer!

Do you know the difference between cost, price and value?

ImageWhen it comes to the real estate transaction, a low ball offer is probably one of the worst things that you can deliver when you come up to bat.

Facing the Consequences

Low balling an offer to the seller or landlord usually has grave consequences.  No matter the financial position of the seller or landlord, right off the bat, you risk insulting them.  The most common responses are to counter the offer at the original full price, refuse to counter, or for the transaction to become a series of balls and strikes with multiple counter offers, usually ending in someone fouling out. The buyer or tenant may eventually get the price that they want, but the cost will be the loss of goodwill in the transaction and more.

Setting the Stage for the Duration

Once woundedness occurs, it is very difficult for that change and for the wounded party to Imagerecover.  This is also true with bank committees representing short sales and foreclosures who have no emotional attachment to the home because they are managed by people with emotions whose work environment and nature of the transaction tends to create high stress situations.

Once ill will is established in the transaction, it can promote breakdown in other areas such as negotiation for repairs or lease renewal or extension.

Questions to Ask First

Before you make that low ball offer ask yourself a few questions:

  1. Do I really understand the cost of my low ball offer?
  2. Is my offer based on similar nearby homes that have recently sold or leased at the same condition, type, and price range?
  3. Would I want a buyer or tenant to do the same thing to me if I were in his shoes?
  4. What is my REALTOR recommending?
  5. What is my plan B if this doesn’t work?

You Make the Market

ImageAfter you have sincerely considered the questions and are comfortable with the possible outcomes, go ahead and make your best advised offer.  Until you make your offer, even if by necessity low due to property condition, market conditions, and recently appraised values, you never really know what might work for the other party.  However, be advised.  What you pay will become your very own comparable for your future appraised value certainly for the next 6 to 12 months establishing your own neighborhood market price. And you’re sure to become the talk of the next neighborhood bar-b-q, having established a downward trend for neighborhood values for everyone for months or even years to come!

Autopsy of a Dead Deal – What Flat Lined That Real Estate Transaction?

toe tagAnatomy of a Dead Deal

As in all autopsies, it begins with the ‘Why?!’ incision. Whether you’re representing the buyer or the seller, what just happened must be understood before proceeding to the next bid.

Not Having Expert Professional Advice

There’s a top and bottom 10% in every field, from your dentist to your mechanic.  The same is true with real estate brokers.  Partnering with the right agent is key to your success.  Hire an experienced, savvy REALTOR®.  They are trained and held  to a higher standard.  They will tell you what lenders will and will not allow to close.  See my blog on How to Hire the Right Real Estate Broker.  A top notch agent will condition you to not only market values, but also on listing and selling strategies.

Not Understanding the Market

Too often, sellers aren’t counseled by their agent to know the market. In a seller’s market, the house may sell quickly and for top dollar in good to great, but not excellent condition, but too much deferred maintenance will either kill the deal or land your sales price toward the lower end of the recently closed properties price range.

Not Knowing the True Condition of Your House

bats in blankets

An important strategy in pricing your property is to know its condition from top to bottom, inside and out – and under and over!  A buyer should not discover you have structural damage, termites in the crawl space, bats in the attic and/or water leaks.  A lender won’t fund a closing with excessive moisture or active termites.  Bats are a protected species and may not be disturbed during mating and nurturing season.  Their droppings are an environmental hazard that must be disclosed.  Once a buyer has discovered major defects, a strange thing happens… they fall out of love with your home sweet home!

You may conclude you’ll not invest in a home inspection before listing, but beware a listing agent who doesn’t recommend one.  Would you buy a car without looking under the hood or starting the engine?  Your agent is setting you and buyers up for disappointment and longer days on market by not insisting you know the true condition of your property.

No Updates

Miller 524Houses with updates sell faster and for more money.  Unless you’re targeting an investor and want to receive 30 – 50% off what your neighbors are receiving for their home sales, there should be no immediate need for kitchen and bath updating.  A home with kitchen and bath updates in the last 5 years in an older neighborhood will earn closer to 100%, and sometimes over, a well-established price point.  Without these updates, the obtained sales price will be closer to the lower end of the range.  But be wise –  the overall condition of the home must be equal for this kind of return.

No Delays or Disappointments

Follow these guidelines, make sure your house is market ready before listing, really listen to and hear feedback, and act on problems immediately when they pop up.  It establishes goodwill with the other side of the transaction, and leads to a smooth closing so you can move on to your new home, and avoid the autopsy table.

Navigating a Charlotte Area Short Sale

Prior to listing a property for sale, the seller must document hardship and the inability to pay the promised mortgage to receive approval from the lending bank to allow a short sale. Those documents must be updated monthly. Once the property is listed, showings and offers begin.

From a buyer’s point of view, once he’s decided to make an offer, the homeowner accepts, rejects or negotiates the offer. If and when all terms are agreed upon, the home goes under contract with the homeowner. The Offer to Purchase and Contract package is sent to the lender’s loan liquidation department along with a proposed HUD or settlement statement.

From there, an asset manager, sometimes called a file manager, is assigned. That can take hours to days, depending upon the bank’s volume of sales in the short sale department. Once the asset manager is assigned, all paperwork is forwarded and reviewed. Back up offers from other interested sellers are also received and submitted for consideration.

If all goes well, within 30 days or so, the investor who purchased the loan from the bank reviews the Offers/Contracts and decides whether or not he also accepts the terms offered. The bank then communicates the decision back to the seller who lets all parties know the verdict.

Behind the scenes, the bank must also eliminate or settle any second mortgage or other liens to make way for a clear title to be transferred to the buyer. Title companies won’t issue a title policy assuring no one else can step forward to claim ownership with any money still owed.

It can take as many as long as 6 months to iron out all the details. At any time, until the day and time of closing when the documents are signed and recorded, the investor may accept any other offer and bump the buyer’s to a null position.

Because many buyers don’t stay in the game for the duration, and for other reasons, fewer than 40% of short sales close. The property then becomes a foreclosure owned outright by the bank. It’s negotiated simply and can close in 15 days for a cash buyer, 30 days for conventional loan, and 45 days for an FHA loan.

It takes a special kind of dedicated buyer to pass by all other listings and continue hammering through a short sale for weeks and months at a time with no update from the bank. It you think that’s you, let’s talk. There are many great deals out there. Call me to discuss your big picture. 704-562-1030
