Secrets Sellers Need To Keep

I will start off by saying that I would never tell a seller to lie on any document but there are some secrets sellers should keep. These non-disclosed secrets in no way are being deceptive to the person purchasing the home but help the seller stay on even ground with the prospective buyers. Savvy sellers know to never expose these secrets and In this video, I will cover the secrets that sellers should keep, so you don’t sabotage your home sale with these home selling tips and get top dollar for your home.

Many buyers will ask the sellers “Why are you moving?” seems like a harmless question, right? When I represent the buyer I always ask it but If I represent the seller I’m tight-lipped with the response, Why? Because the answer can make the buyers perceive the sellers time frame as being more urgent causing them to make a lower offer. For instance, If the seller has to move because of a job transfer. The buyers know that the seller wants to get rid of the home they have for sale as quickly as possible so their offer will reflect that.

So what other responses would cause the buyer to feel like they have the upper hand in the deal that sellers should stay quiet about?

🤫“We just need to live in a quiet neighborhood”

If I buyer hears that from a seller their imaginations run wild to what that could possibly mean. Not only could you as a seller get lower offers because of it, but you may also lose out on offers altogether.

💸“The Taxes and Insurance are killing us”

I can already see the alarm bells ringing overs buyers head when they hear this. If they do not perceive the cost of insurance and taxes as too high they already know you as a seller are eager to sell quickly to get out from under your mounting financial problems.

😡“We hate our Neighbors”

Not all people are the same and If you dislike your neighbors the new possible buyers may be bosom buddies. Also, you may want to be careful in saying this for another reason. The buyers may also be related to some of your disliked neighbors. I live in a small town and this is not unheard of at all, you never know who you are talking to so be careful.

🏡“We just want a newer house”

When sellers say this a buyer begins to believe there is work that needs to be done to the home you are trying to selling or the home is outdated. They start to run a price tag of all the items they think haven’t been taking care of and make an offer with that in mind.

⚠️“We Just Don’t Feel Safe”

This is a perceived feeling for you as a seller. What you consider “safe” may be a step up for the new possible buyer. Let the buyers and buyers agent do there due diligence when researching the neighborhood. Crime statistics are public record and are posted on many websites, I included a report for my buyers in any home they are researching.

🎉And what is the biggest secret you should keep as a home seller?

“What’s your bottom line?” Never I Mean NEVER tell a buyer what your bottom line is. Not only will they know what you want to make they will also try to go just under that amount to sweeten the deal in their own minds. If you want top dollar for your home or even fair market price NEVER TELL THIS SECRET!!🤫

Home Buying Detective

It’s Take A Tip Tuesday! Do you know how to be a home buying detective? I have told you in previous videos that are ways for a home buyer to do their own due diligence when buying a home. But what does that really mean to you as a buyer buying a home in an area that you have had your eye on? In this video, I will be showing you how to be a home buying detective and find out all the things you need to know before you sign a purchase contract when buying a home.

🕵🏽‍♂️Look at the tax records online! This is a great way to know how much the sellers purchased the home for. In Ascension Parish, you can even see how much they financed the house for. How is this helpful to you? If you know that they want $250,000 for there home and they only purchased they home 3 years earlier for $180,000 you know they have wiggle room to negotiate for less than the asking price. Knowledge is POWER!

🕵🏽‍♂️Check the local sheriff’s website: A quick Google search and a few keystrokes away from knowing if there are any predators that live close by to the home you’re researching. Even if this isn’t a personal concern for you for many it is and one day you’ll want to sell the home you are thinking of buying and the next buyers may find this to be a very big issue causing your home to stay on the market for longer than you are expecting.

🕵🏽‍♂️Call your local homeowner’s insurance company and ask for a CLUE report? Whats a CLUE report? This is a report that can tell a potential buyer how many insurance claims were made on the property for the past 5 years, the dates those claims were made, The type of loss, how much was paid to settle the claim or if the claim was denied this information can be extremely helpful in discovering hidden problems, before you sign on the dotted line

🕵🏽‍♂️Ask The Sellers some Great Questions: I know that I have said in a past video what things a seller should keep tight-lipped about but no everyone is going to take my advice so ask them. “Why are you moving?” “What’s your bottom line?” “How quickly are you looking to move?” “How do you like your neighbors?” “Do you have any crimes or break-ins in the neighborhood” “Do you have receipts of all the repairs you have made in the past?”
Loose lips sink ships as one customer told me in the past. The home sellers answers could be a great way for you to feel out how stuck they are in their price and how quickly they are ready to fly the coupe.

🕵🏽‍♂️Go to the home at peak hours: To really investigate a neighborhood and your possible future neighbors go to the house during the times when people are leaving and coming home from work. Is there a bunch of cars parked on the road blocking the streets up? Also, drive around and check the yards, Are they maintained? You’re not buying just this house you are also buying the neighborhood as well.

🕵🏽‍♂️BONUS TIP!!! I have said it before but bears repeating again, Talk with the neighbors!! You will be surprised at the great tidbits of information they will give you about the home you are t

The Dangers Of Overpricing A Home When Selling.

Why is overpricing your home is a terrible strategy?  I have mentioned in a previous video that there are some key ways that sellers self-sabotage their home sale, (if you haven’t seen that video https://youtu.be/Mx9r975xRMo) But one of the biggest ways home sellers enter dangerous waters is when they use the overpricing strategy when selling their home. Today’s video will explain 5 reasons why overpricing your home will not get you top dollar for it.

Once your home hits the market buyers are always eager to see the fresh new listings if you have overpriced your home, those buyers are not liking to come back to see it again, the buyers already have the perception that (You) the sellers are unreasonable.

All sellers would like to have multiple offers to look at when negotiating contracts. The likelihood of that happening is diminished greatly if your home is overpriced. By setting your price above market value, you will have fewer offers to choose from. This could mean as a seller you would end up settling on an offer, instead of choosing the offer with the strongest offer strength.

If you are fortunate enough to get an offer for that is above market value you could come into some problems once the buyer has an appraisal done. The appraiser uses the most recent home sales to come up with the fair market value of the home. If the appraised value comes under the offer price you’d be hard pressed to find a buyer that is willing to come out of pocket the remaining amount.

car-44144_1280.pngAn overpriced home is much more likely to sit on the market longer than a home that is priced fairly. The longer your home sits the more likely people start to believe the home has other problems creating a stigma.

Sellers that have sat on the market for a long period of time are less likely to get an offer that is truly happy with in the end. A sense of desperation increases as the months sitting on the market roll on by and they end up accepting an offer that was less than expected.

5 Tips When To Make A Lowball Offer

Last week I told you about bidding wars (To Read That Article https://bit.ly/2LoaC7X ). This week I will be telling you when is the right time to lowball an offer on a home. This video will provide 5 useful tips to know when the perfect time is to lowball an offer on a house. There is often real estate lowball offer mistakes people make when making an offer and know how to construct your offer in a way not to offend the sellers by providing facts to why you made the lowball offer in the first place can be the reason why you win the deal of the century.

The first tip to consider if you are going to home buying with the idea you are going to lowball every home you make an offer on is not to be picky. DO NOT ask for items that are not important to the structure of the home, like washer, dryer, and refrigerator, Do not ask for lawn maintenance or items to be removed. Basically, you are purchasing the home as in the condition that it’s currently in and not anything more than that.

The second tip that can work in your benefit is knowing if the home you’re considering lowballing is grossly overpriced. Many sellers will have illusions of grandeur when it comes to pricing their home. If you can prove with comps that the home is overpriced to the seller they may see things your way.

Lowball Offer

The third tip that’s important to know when giving a lowball offer is to see how many times the home has been on and off the market within the last couple years. This could be a sign that the seller is in financial trouble and needs to get out. Check with your Realtor to see if the home has been put up on the sheriff’s sale website for delinquent payments or back taxes. This information could help leverage your lowball offer.

the fourth tip is to talk with the neighbors, neighbors love to dish out any secrets the sellers may not have disclosed that wouldn’t be pertinent to the structure of the home like a divorce, loss of a job or financial issues. Sometimes the neighbors can be the sellers biggest nightmare but a lowball buyers dream!

Neighbors helping with a lowball offer

The fifth tip is to take a good look at obviously outdated items in the home to leverage your lowball offer. If the carpet is old and smelly, the kitchen looks like it from the set of the Golden Girls and every room needs a fresh coat of paint add up the cost to have those items that need remodeled and show the seller why your lowball offer was made. This could be the tip that seals the deal.

5 Tips When Buying A Home – Take A Tip Tuesday.

Take A Tip Tuesday! 5 Tips For Buying A Home.

 

It’s Take A Tip Tuesday and in this weeks video, I discuss 5 big things that people should know when buying a home.  Whether this is your first home or tenth home, these tips should always be helpful. In Ascension Parish, we have lots of people moving in and out an all around but people seem to forget what needs to be done when buying a home. Below I’ve listed 5 key tips to remember.

Get Approved!

I must say this about 1000 times in my past videos and I know if you have been following me for awhile I may sound like a broken record but I’m telling you, people jump the gun when home shopping and tend to forget all about being “pre-approved” prior to their home quest.

Size Doesn’t Matter!

This is another thing that some people can get hung up on. They want a HUGE home but did you know that if you have the largest home in a neighborhood you will get a lot less per square foot than your surrounding neighbors. Bigger doesn’t mean better and maybe an unwise investment.

Shiny New Toy Syndrome.

Imagine walking into a home that has all the bells and whistles, super thick granite, custom cabinets and all upgraded modern appliances. It’s your dream home but it’s over the budget you set for yourself. Delayed gratification can be better in the long run, especially for your wallet as well. Don’t get stuck with a home that you can barely furnish because you had to have the newest, latest and greatest.

Budget For Other Costs.

When you go on sites like Realtor dot com, Trulia, and Zillow, they will give you an estimated mortgage payment. Many of these sites do not factor in the other costs, like escrows, insurance, and taxes. Make sure you have more money set aside for these items.

Hire An Inspector.

I can’t say this enough, even if you are buying a brand new home you should have it inspected by a professional. Even though the new home has to pass building code inspections things get missed and the inspector you hire is looking out for your best interest.

How To Clean Those Window Blinds Easily.

 Are Your Buyers Going Blind ‘Cause They Can’t See?

 It’s Take A Tip Tuesday!

 Hi, I’m Kristina Smallhorn, your Real Estate Whisperer for Ascension Parish. We all know that we wanna show our house in the best light possible, but if the light can’t come through because your blinds are dirty, then that could hinder some buyer saying, “Wow, it’s dark in this house.”

 I mean, let’s be honest. The blinds would have to be pretty filthy for that to be a real issue, but one of my clients has asked me to find the best way to clean your blinds. It would be, first of all, cheap, secondly of all, fast, and thirdly of all, easy.

Sydney my daughter, is out of school this week and she said she was going to help me find a way to clean the blinds. I figured since she’s a helper, that would help with time. We’re gonna try some different methods that people have suggested to clean your blinds in your house. Let’s get started.

***And We’re now off to the dollar store to get inexpensive supplies.***

 We got our supplies at the Family Dollar and they wouldn’t let us film inside the Family Dollar. I don’t know why it’s a requirement not to film in the Family Dollar, but as soon as we walked in the store, she’s like, “You cannot film in our store.” I didn’t know it was such a top secret thing to not film in the Family Dollar. Okay, but we’ll show you our haul when we get home. Don’t tell them what we’re gonna do.

At the Family Dollar, we got plenty of things. Microfiber cleaning sponges, some tongs. How much did everything cost… A $1.00!

 When we were at the Family Dollar, my husband suggested he had a very cool way of cleaning the blinds. I thought this would be a fantastic trick to share with everybody for cleaning your blinds.  First, you’re gonna take two sponges. With those two sponges, you are going to cut a slit in them. These sponges are microfiber. What you’re gonna do is you’re gonna slide the sponge over the little tongs.

 We’re gonna take the tongs and put them so it’s clamped onto a blind, and we’re just gonna slide it across by putting a little bit of pressure on it. This will get all the dust off underneath and above. Oh, look! You can see the dust. That worked really well. There’s one more method I’d like to mention. My mom used to take the whole blind off the wall, and then she’d go out into the driveway, put it on the ground, spray the whole thing with Fantastic, wait a couple minutes, then hose it off. I think that’s a great method for a blind that’s in the kitchen and you have a lot of grease that’s caked on it. But other than that, you can just leave them on the window and use the tongs with the sponges. I think that’s a super method.

Sydney and I, hope you found this trick useful. If you’d like to know more about selling homes here in Ascension Parish, you can always visit at YourRealEstateWhisperer.com.

How To Get Rid Of Dog Urine Smells In Carpets And Upholstery.

 

 It’s Take a Tip Tuesday. Does Your House Smell Like Dog Pee?

Hi, my name is Kristina Smallhorn, Your Real Estate Whisperer for Ascension Parish. And if you have animals, you may not even know that your house has a pet odor. And one of the worst odors you can deal with pets is when they have accidents and they have urinated in the house. You may not smell it, but buyers that do not have pets can.

There is a way to get rid of the smell, believe it or not. I discovered this trick from a client of mine who contacted me. She told me that her dog had left quite a mess after being left alone in a room for too long and they had the hardest time getting the smell out. So she gave me these great tips to get that smell out because I have dogs. I thought I would share that with you as well.

So, when it comes to old dog stains, and old dog odors, it seems like they even get stronger the older they get. I know that for this dog, she still is a puppy so we have accidents in the house and it happens. So what you’re going to want to do, if you haven’t caught it when it was still wet. If it’s wet you’re going to want to, you know, pull up the damp spot, but if you didn’t catch it when it was still wet, it’s not too late.

What you do is you take the spot that was dirty. Apparently, she wants to help as well. And you have a spray bottle which I just filled up an empty spray bottle with vinegar. And you’re going to, it’s just white vinegar, so you’re going to … Get out of here. Go. I’m shooting a video here, go. You’re going to spray that spot with vinegar and you’re going to get it pretty wet and of course it does smell like a salad, but it gets that dog urine strong smell out of the carpet. Okay. So of course what that does is kind of reactivate the dog pee. So you’re going to let that sit for a little bit.

Once it sits, for I would say a good 15 minutes, you’re going to take an old rag and you’re going to kind of push on that spot and get all that excess white vinegar out, and then after you have gotten all that excess white vinegar out, then you are going to sprinkle good old baking soda. Remember Mom’s baking soda? And you’re going to push that into the carpet where the white vinegar was. And I would put a good old healthy helping on here. And I kind of like take the rag and kind of push it back into the carpet really deep so it gets really into the carpet fibers there. Kind of like, make almost like a paste of this in there to get that really under the, if you have the carpet pad underneath as well. Let that sit on there until it makes like a crust, okay?

And then once it makes that crust, you’ll see that the baking soda has drawn up all that dog pee that was underneath at the bottom. And then all you do is vacuum it up and it’s done. And you do not have that smell anymore. It’s fantastic. It was a great trick, I was so glad that my client called me and told me about it.

So if you have a home that you have for sale, and the complaints have come in that they smell dog pee in the house, this is a great way, a cheap way to get that dog pee smell out, even out of old, old stains.
