Failed Home Inspection. Whats A Home Buyer To Do?

You thought you found the perfect home but your new home failed inspection... not really. A home inspection is not pass or fail.

You should expect a home to be safe, sound and functioning reasonably well. If something should arise during your home inspection you find unacceptable what should you do?

Well first don't go off the deep end. Thoroughly read your inspection report and clarify anything you might not understand with the inspector. Are there major issues that need to be dealt with immediately?

Maybe its time to renegotiate with the seller if some of the items are deal breakers for you. If your requests are reasonable a reasonable home seller will work with you.

Good Faith Deposits Explained

When you buying a home you will come across having to put up a good faith deposit with your contract.

The good faith deposit is not your down payment. It is earnest money that is held in the escrow account to show the seller you are serious and you have skin in the game.

At some point you need to realize that while you have protections in the contract in place for your good faith deposit, at some point it could be at risk if you default on your contract.

Sellers take a large risk taking their house of the market for a buyer and can incur significant losses if you do not close on the property.

Good faith deposits are certainly negotiated between buyer and seller. Of course a seller wants a larger deposit and a buyer wants a smaller deposit. But, a larger deposit could give your seller more confidence in your offer.

Your Listing Is Only New Once

Sometimes sellers miss the boat whn they list their home. Maybe they think the market is so hot they do not need to do the basics and don't want to be inconvenienced.

But can you afford not taking it seriously from day one? There are many reasons why the first few days to the first couple of weeks are critical to your marketing.

It is important to come out of the gate priced right and fully prepared. Your home will harness the most interest it will over the life of the listing.

Professional Real Estate Photography

At the forefront of marketing your home is the images you present online in the MLS and throughout the internet on sites like Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia and more.

In this day and age you will be competing with agents who hire professional real estate photographers. Will your agent be providing high quality photos?

Don't be afraid to ask a listing agent how they handle listing photos. It could be a professional photographer or their are other agents who have taken the time to take their own professional quality images. If they are showing up with a cell phone it may be time to rethink your listing agent!!

Understanding Fair Market Value in Real Estate

Over 80% of the home sold in the US are sold through an agent with most using the help of a multiple listing service. Out of the remaining sales many are private sales and never go to the open market.

Once a home goes to the open market a buyer can expect to pay fair market value for a home as well as a seller should have the expectation of selling for fair market value.

How is fair market value determined? Well there is a way to go about determining the probable selling price of a property. It is not just a number pulled out of the air.
