How Do Closing Cost Credits Work?
Do you know what the purpose of having a closing cost credit happens to be in a real estate transaction?

Do you know how they work? These are the questions that are discussed in a featured article over at +Storify.

If you have never used Storify I would encourage you to take a look as it is a great place for a real estate agent to market their content and others as well.

In this particular article I have shared an excellent reference from +Kyle Hiscock that explains sellers concessions.

Take a look and see how you can use Storify to magnify your blog content!

#realestate  
When buying a home it may be suggested to you by your mortgage broker or real estate agent to ask for a closing cost credit. Simply put a closing cost credit is money you receive from the seller that allows you not to take cash out of your pocket. See how closing cost credits work!

Seller paid closing costs are very common down here. Just closed one where we raised the price by $2000 as the buyer needed all $5000 of their closing  costs paid.

Why Reducing a Commission DOES NOT Save You Money
Being cheap and reducing the commission on what you are willing to pay a real estate agent does not save you money.

In fact you could be shooting yourself in the foot when you reduce the commission to a buyers agent.

See why paying the going rate in your local area makes sense.

#realestate  
Why a real estate commission split matters when you are selling a home. Discounting your commission often times leads to netting less money on your sale.

Good read and I don't cut commissions as you indeed pay for what you get.

How Do You Market Your Clients Homes?
If you have a real estate blog do you ever create presentations for your clients listings? Take a look at the one I have created for 5 College Street, Hopkinton, MA.

Would you not agree this is a nice presentation for this listing? There are some excellent photos, descriptions of each of the rooms and a professional video tour. For good measure I have included a Google map to show off the convenient location.

As a real estate agent this is the kind of marketing you can do to add value. A seller really appreciates it when you go the extra mile! Creating a presentation like this can  land you more listings.

Let me know what you think.

Bill was chosen at our attorneys direction to sell our home through a very contentious divorce. I am not sure if our attorneys or Bill knew the challenges he would face. On most occasions Bill was meet with resistance, personal barbs and attacks from an uncooperative home owner. Bill was put in a difficult position but always maintained his professionalism and enthusiasm for his work. He always put forth his best and was most instrumental in selling our home. It is easy to understand why he is so highly respected for his work. Bill, I am most grateful for all of your hard work and support. You went above and beyond any expectations. Linda Walker

Linda thanks! Dealing with a divorce is usually not easy but you made the experience easy. I enjoyed helping sell your Hopedale home.

I've known Bill for many years and have always regarded him as very knowledgeable and hardworking. He is the first person I think to call if I have any questions concerning real estate and he willing gives accurate and professional advice. His awareness of market trends, property values and marketing is what makes him a valuable factor in saving time and money. His accomplishments speak for themselves and I’m never surprised to hear he continues to top the lists of success. Bill has sold 2 properties for me in the past few years. He always shows up on time and prepared, advises and educates, communicates in a timely manner and makes you feel secure that you have picked the best person for the job.

We were referred to Bill from a friend who had recently used his services and expressed his extreme pleasure throughout the selling process. And I am more than pleased with our interactions with him and thankful that we used Bill! In selling our house in Framingham, we were unsure of the listing price we should be targeting, how to market it, when to do open houses etc. Bill showed up ready to roll, complete with numerous local comps, a plan of attack, example brochures of how he planned to get our house seen and we were nothing short of thoroughly impressed! Needless to say, one week of marketing, 1 open house, 3 offers and next thing you know... our house had been sold $7,000 above asking price in a real tough market. We also used Bill to help purchase our new home in Hopkinton, an area that he is obviously familiar with, and had even better results! We purchased a new construction home and with his advisement was able to add in various additional concessions in the purchase price. His expertise in the process made the sale of the old house, purchase of the new house and every step in between absolutely flawless, fast and easy! Bill has been an asset to us through the years and his name is the first one that comes to mind when it comes to realty. No questions asked, the best of the best.

Bill is a true professional in every sense of the word. He is honest, responsive and truly focuses on you and selling your property. I was very impressed with the marketing plan Bill put together to sell our house in Hopkinton. I have been recommending Bill to all of my friends who are seeking fast results when selling their homes.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Paul I appreciate the kind words. Selling your Hopkinton home was easy because of how well you kept it up. No doubt you could see the pride of ownership.

Bill was a pleasure to work with during the sale of our existing Milford home as well as the purchase of our new home. He did an outstanding job in keeping us informed on all issues that arose along the way. His follow up was excellent and we truly appreciate the thoroughness he showed at all times during this process. Nothing was overlooked in what can be a stressful process. Bill sold our home in 1 day! We were thrilled as we already had an agreement on our new home. He was very reassuring in his ability to sell our existing home quickly but to us this was far beyond what we had hoped for. In conclusion, we always will recommend Bill to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Our experience was extremely positive and it is a pleasure to write this review for someone who works very hard to make sure his job is done well. John and Janice Bouchard

I purchased an 11 room 3500 sf home almost 24 years ago which I planned on flipping. It ended up being the longest flip in history! It's on a main road so selling it became a challenge to say the least! Throughout the years I hired numerous agents who claimed they could easily sell the beautiful home but they didn't deliver and only a few brought potential buyers to view it! In 2013 I Googled "number one real estate agent in Massachusetts" and Bill Gassett came up as not only the number one ReMax agent in MA and all of New England! I decided to no longer hire agents that were friends of friends and instead I solved the problem and hired the best! Success leaves clues! The clincher was when I emailed Bill on a Sunday afternoon in June and he responded in detail within 10 minutes! We met the next day. He's professional, he listens and has a great sense of humor. I signed and he immediately had a photographer come and take photos, put together a beautiful brochure with a detailed description of the property and posted the information and photos on numerous websites... The property got more immediate interest than it had received in the previous 23 years! It sold not long after! I still can't believe it! If you want the best results, hire the best!

Wow Todd! Thanks very much for your kind words. Selling your Medway home was a little more challenging that some properties because of the fact it was in such a busy location. I knew however I would get the job done. It was great to work with you.

We met Bill while looking at one of his listings. We had interviewed several other agents to help us with the sale of our home, but decided one more opinion couldn't hurt. Bill's review of our home was very candid and we found his appraisal refreshing. It is our belief that others had placed a higher value on our home just to earn the contract, but would have caused problems when it didn't sell quickly. Their appraisals could not be backed up with the proper evidence from prior sales. The first 60 - 90 days are critical and pricing your home incorrectly the first time could lead to a lengthy listing and reduced ultimate selling price. We were very impressed with his marketing strategy and we had an offer within 30 days. It all happened so fast that it put us behind schedule on finding our new home. Bill once again came through and we were able to close on the new house the same day as the sale of our old home. Moving can be a very stressful situation, especially when you have three young children. Bill was always willing to do whatever was needed to help us with the move and we highly recommend his services.
