Beware of Poor Home Flips! Lurking in the Kitchen
House Flipping…The Good vs. The Bad!
Scariest Situations for Home Buyers & Sellers – Part 4 So, where are we? We have an accepted offer, the home inspection went well, we successfully negotiated a Request for Repairs, the appraisal supported the purchase price, the buyer has removed all contingencies and now it is an unconditional offer. The finish line is in sight. But, there are still a few more “scary” steps ahead of you. For one, the lender needs to get the final loan documents to the escrow company so the buyer can meet with a Notary to sign everything. Now that part can be a little intimidating and nerve-racking for a buyer. That is why it is very important for the loan officer to review the Estimated Settlement Statement or Loan Estimate with the buyer(s) BEFORE they sit down with the Notary. This ensures a less-stressful, and less-scary, loan signing. Next is for the buyers to conduct the Final Walkthrough of the home, contractually this is to be done 5 days before the close of escrow. This is important to confirm that the home is in relatively the same condition as when the offer was accepted and no damage was done when the seller moved out. Now the seller is also supposed to remove all personal items from the home, but often some things are left behind, like yard products (fertilizers, bug sprays, etc.) And while the seller is required
Scariest Situations for Home Buyers & Sellers – Part 3 Thanks for checking in with me. This is Part 3 of a 4-part series, so I invite you to check out the other videos, I know you will find them informative. So, in the scenario we are talking about, we are already in contract, we have conducted the general home inspection and after some anxious anticipation, the appraisal report comes in! And……it is UNDER value! Ouch! No scarier situation than that, especially for a first time home buyer or first time home seller. So what now? Well now we have a few options, as a buyer, we will try to negotiate the contracted price DOWN to the appraised value. As a home seller, we would negotiate hard to hold to the contracted sales price and have the buyer come in with the difference. Now, how this goes depends on many variables, how much the buyer has for a down payment, if it is a 100% LTV VA-buyer, no much chance the buyer can come up off of the lower appraised value, and as a seller, if there were multiple offers, we can always cancel the contract, if the buyer doesn’t want to come up with the difference, and go back to the market for another offer. If you are looking for someone who will treat your money like I was
Scariest Situations for Home Buyers & Sellers – Part II This is Part II, be sure to check Part I if you haven’t already. So, another “scary” thing about buying a home, or for that matter, selling a home, is the Home Inspection! May thing can come up during this process and you have to be ready to receive a final home inspection report that…can look pretty scary! It is the duty of the home inspector to point out every fault or deficiency with a home. But, that is what you want in a home inspector. Someone who isn’t afraid to “tell it like it is.” Now, it is the buyer, or seller’s, choice to use whatever home inspector that they want, but here at The GreenHouse Group, we have one home inspection group that has, time and again, proven their value to 0ur clients, with such consistency, that we recommend our buyers and sellers, consider them when searching for a home inspector. As with any home inspection, there will be a handful of things that the inspector will find. I always meet with my clients to conduct a Post-Home Inspection Huddle-Up. We will discuss your concerns with the findings of the report, I will share what came up for me after reading the report, then we will craft an approach to either move forward and negotiate a Request for Repairs,
