When you sell your home, it may be tempting to just try and put your home on the market yourself without any assistance. By hiring a real estate agent, youíll have a insurance policy of sorts that allows you to know that everything is taken care of throughout the process of selling. The general goal in selling a home is to sell it as fast as possible for the most amount of money that you can. A realtor should do a bit more for you than simply post the home and hope that it sells. Hereís what a great realtor who is looking to be an advocate for their sellers will do for you:


Put The Home On The Market For The Right Price


Selling a home at the right price is the single most important thing that can be done in the entire process. A good sellerís agent will pinpoint the right price for your home. If the home is priced too high, there will be no interest in the property. People will believe that the price can only come down. If the price is set too low, a bidding war can ensue, or buyers may wonder whatís wrong with the property. Thereís many different formulas and methods that agents will use to price the property right. The important thing is that the agent does his research.


The Market Needs To Be Marketed


Marketing is one thing that agents should be good at. A good sellerís agent will take good photos of a property or hire a professional photographer if needed. The photos and videos that are put up online are a big part of how homes get sold. Buyers want to know the property before they even see it in person. A realtor can help make this impression visible online.


Communicate With You


An agent should keep their sellers informed about whatís going on in the sale of their home. Even if offers havenít come in, realtors should be getting in touch with their clients regularly to update them on home showings, concerns, and open house dates. A good sellerís agent will regularly communicate with you throughout the sale of your home. At the start of the sale, youíll know a realtor is a good fit since theyíll return your calls and e-mails promptly.


Be There For The Home Appraisal


When youíre selling your home, the appraisal can be one of the most nerve-wracking things that occurs during the entire process. Your agent should attend the appraisal to help clarify confusion and answer the appraiserís questions. The realtor will be educated on the recent updates that have been made to the home. These are what add immense value to the home.

If youíre buying a home for the first time, you have a lot to learn. There are so many decisions that need to be made and new terms to be understood. While you may have been saving up for a downpayment, youíre most likely going to need t finance the majority of the cost of your home. Knowing how to deal with lenders, real estate agents, and other professionals involved in the process of purchasing a home will make your life that much more straightforward. Read on for some mortgage tips that every first-time home buyer should understand.


Know Your Budget


You may find when you apply for a mortgage that youíre able to finance more than you thought you could. Being able to borrow such a significant amount is where many home buyers get caught in a numbers trap. Although the bank may be willing to loan you a certain amount, you might not actually be able to afford it. While the bank looks at many of your financial numbers, the bank doesnít know your entire budget. How much you spend on groceries each month or the cost of your monthly phone bill are out of the picture when the mortgage company approves you for a loan. Whatever amount of money you borrow to buy your house will result in a monthly payment amount. If youíre only paying $800 per month in rent but your mortgage payment will be $1400, that will result in a significant budget adjustment. Will you be able to come up with the additional $600 each month to pay the mortgage? You need to look at your entire budget seriously to be safe in your mortgage transaction. 


Plan For Out Of Pocket Expenses


You know that you need to save for a downpayment on the home of your dreams. What you may not know is that there are many other out of pocket expenses that you need to foot the bill for when you buy a home. These costs include:


Inspection

Legal fees

Insurance

Pizza for the people who help you move

Repairs to the home

Utility costs


There are so many expenses that you need to come up with when you buy a home. Donít merely save enough for your down payment and stop. Make sure you have a financial cushion for emergencies, money to help furnish the house, and more. 


Mind Your Credit


When you buy a new home, it may be tempting to buy new furniture, decor, or other items for your property. Hold off on opening any new credit or making large purchases. While a new car will look great in your new driveway, it wonít look so good on your credit score. Be very mindful of your credit score when you are getting ready to buy a home.
