Home Buyer Real Estate Tip
The real estate Purchase Contract needs to be filled out correctly. All those little lines and spaces for information on a contract that home buyers sign are there for a reason. The REALTOR® a home buyer decides to work with is vital toward getting the home buyer’s offer accepted.
Sacramento homes are receiving multiple offers
Since most homes for sale receive multiple offers, a home buyer wants to make sure their offer is accepted. Is your contract fully filled out? Have all the additional documents been provided with your offer? If not, your offer may not be accepted.
As a Sacramento REALTOR®, I see lenders who write offers for home buyers, but don’t fill out the contracts correctly nor in the best interest of the home buyer. Of course, if I dabbled in loans, I’m sure I wouldn’t do a good job either. In real estate, the more “deals” a REALTOR® has had experience with, the better professional representing a home buyer or seller they are. Experience in real estate is like anything else, the more you do it, the better you get and the more you learn.
In the old days, the real estate Broker checked each agent’s file long before the escrow closed so that mistakes could be caught but lately, I’m not sure anybody is checking the contracts being written. So, do yourself a favor, home buyers and check your own contract, making sure all the lines are filled out so your chances are better toward getting your offer accepted.
Here are a few key points as a home buyer who should expect from your REALTOR®:
- show you homes with no pressure
- expect home buyers have Pre Approval Letter
- provide CMA(comparative market analysis) before writing offer
- keep you well informed & communicate at a minimum, weekly
These are just the minimum requirements you should expect from your agent if you are a home buyer.
