Buying and Selling a Home Simultaneously
One of the more common issues in real estate sales is trying to time a purchase and a sale simultaneously.

This is one area that can be quite stressful for many people. How do you manage it? Is a home sale contingency possible? Is putting a clause into my listing that says "subject to finding suitable housing" a wise move?

These are some of the considerations I talk about over at my articles I have shared at +Storify.

BTW have you checked out Storify yet? I have mentioned it on numerous occasions as a great place to market your content.

Check it out and see what I mean! If you find the articles helpful please consider socially sharing.

Buying and selling a home at the same time can be tricky. This is one of the fears on the minds of many homeowners as they set out to figure out how to make the timing work when they need to sell their existing home before buying another.

A Small Down Payment Down Doesn't Mean The Buyer Isn't Qualified

There is a misconception among some sellers that a low or no money down loan makes a buyer less qualified to purchase a home.

This is certainly not the case! There are some buyers who choose to put less money down than those who are putting 20 percent down or more!

In the article I explain why you should never discount a buyers ability to purchase a home just because they are putting less money down.

You can use this the next time a seller is giving you are hard time about the borrower.

See contributions in the article from +Kyle Hiscock and +Luke Skar. There is also one of my favorite home selling articles referenced where you will see contributions in this resource from +Andrew Fortune +Anita Clark +Debbie Drummond +Lynn Pineda  and +Karen Highland among others.

A small down payment doesn't mean the buyer is not qualified when purchasing a home. There are many popular low and no down payment loans today.

Honest. Brutal. No sugar coated tales. Just facts, 20 Cold, Hard Facts about Real Estate Short Sales.

One of the 20 Cold Hard Facts:

Know the local distressed Real Estate Market - Whether a home is a Short Sale or traditional sale, Real Estate is always local.  You may not know your local distressed market, but make sure your hired Real Estate Agent does. It’s critical to know how to position a home for sale in a local market, more so than ever, with a Short Sale. Time is not on your side with a Short Sale and you must get the home sold. A Short Sale should never expire. There must always be a strategy for getting it sold. What happens if no offers come after a few weeks? A Real Estate Agent better know what to do.

Click through below to read the remaining 19 facts about Short Sales and please consider sharing so the facts get well known.

What Are Home Buyer Grants?
Do you know what a home buyer grant is when it comes to purchasing a home?

If I am correct you probably don't don't that much more about them then the girl in the picture below!

+Kyle Hiscock however has done a fantastic job explaining how a home buyer grant works.

If you had a buyer who needed a grant would you be willing to accept this as a term in the offer?

Kyle says YES - find out why in his article.

#realestate #homebuying  
You've received a purchase offer, congratulations! It is contingent on the buyer receiving home buyer grants. Should you accept? Yes and here's why!

As a Realtor myself, I know what to look for in a top notch real estate agent. Lynn has all of those qualities including drive, honesty and knowledge. Having known Lynn for the last few years it has been great to work with her on a couple of referrals. In fact one recent referral is still in the process of working with her right now and has nothing but good things to say. If you are looking for an excellent real estate agent in the Coral Springs area make sure you give her a call.
