How To Sell and Buy a Home on Same Day

The fun begins and with a few other thingscoming up in the near future we decided it was time to downsize and move closer to whereboth of our moms are It was just very smooth from the very beginning.

We were able to just click together.

I believe that this process was probably oneof the easiest and best.

I really think the best was to go with youguys first because we have had a really good experience.

I really liked the marketing.

The very first thing that I like that youwere able to do an Ariel view.

I had never really seen something like thatbefore so I was really impressed with the Ariel view.

And then I was really impressed that you didthe walkthrough, the things you said, and the enthusiasm that was shown, and the thingsthat were showing so positive about our home.

And then the way you guys marketing thingsand kept things going kept things moving, kept in touch with us to say ok what we cando here to see if we can help.

And I really did appreciate how well thatmarketing went because I know that the marketing really helped us a lot and I know that itwould have been harder if we wouldn’t have had the good marketing service’s that youguys gave us.

Everybody that we have talked to have beenvery impressed with everything and how it’s going.

The timing has worked out perfect for sellingthis home and purchasing the other.

We were able to close on both residences atthe same time that was a big help.

I really can’t see anything that you guyscould do different because you were so friendly, you were so helpful, and you were accessibleto us, you helped us in any way possible.

I just like what you’re doing so far sodon’t break it what you got going is great.

Thanks JoelThanks Ann! Thanks Joel! Thanks everybody for all of your help to helpus be successful to sell and move.

When The Right Time To Sell, And When Should You Rent or Hold It?

Brian: I’m Brian Spitz, president of BigState Home Buyers.

Thanks for joining us and today, as our guest, we have Amber Carrillo,with Carrington Real Estate Services.

And we’re going to talk about when is the righttime to sell your house, and whether or not you should rent or sell it.

Whether it’sin this current market or just in general.

So, thanks so much for coming today.

Amber: Absolutely.

Thanks for having me.

Rent home or sell it(0:00:53.

1) Brian: Absolutely.

So, tell us about renting your home or selling it.

Amber: Well, when it comes to renting your home or selling it, there are just so manydifferent factors.

A lot of it is going to depend on you, on personal finances.

And whatworks best for your situation.

Are you in a situation where you need to sell your housein order to buy another one? Or are you in a situation where you’re going to be a longdistance landlord.

There are so many factors that go into that.

Brian: Yeah, that’s true.

I mean, a lot of it, I guess, is whether or not you needthe down payment and the equity of your first house or whether your mortgage lender requiresthat you only have one loan.

Amber: Exactly.

Brian: When you see people rent houses out, in my experience, at Big State Home Buyers,we buy houses directly from sellers and one of our biggest client bases is actually, afunny word, is tired landlords, people that have been landlords and want out of the business.

So, what I tell people is it’s not as easy as it looks.

But what is your experience?Of course, it works out really well for some people, especially if you get the right tenants.

Amber: Right.

(0:01:54.

8) Getting a Property Manager ifRenting Brian: What do you see for the average personwho is thinking about renting their home, rather than selling?Amber: Well, if you do not have the experience, I would absolutely recommend that you contractthat out with someone to handle the property management, because there are just so manydifferent laws, you know, tenant rights and landlord rights, and you really need to bestudying up on those types of things.

If not, have a really good real estate attorneyin your corner that you can call whenever a question or situation arises.

When it comesto doing evictions and stuff like that, it can get really hairy, so it’s not somethingthat you would always want to handle hands on.

Brian: Oh, yeah, definitely not.

The biggest reason people try to take that on themselvesis basically to save the money you pay the property manager but my philosophy is youshould pay people to do what they do best so you can do what you do best.

Amber: That’s exactly right.

Brian: Property management is a tough deal.

(0:02:44.

4) Screening tenants Amber: It is a tough deal.

And it’s so important,if that’s something that you’ve chosen to do, is that you screen the applicants verywell and you’ve got a system in place to screen those.

Brian: Right.

Amber: So a lot of times, if you’re goingto list it with an agent to lease it out, we have those resources available to do backgroundchecks and credit screenings and stuff like that.

Brian: Right.

Amber: To be able to prevent putting felonsand stuff like that in the property.

Brian: Right.

And so a lot of times, peoplejust put a For Rent sign in front of their house and they kind of take whichever tenantlooks like they can pay the rent.

But the reality is if you just wait for the righttenant, you end up in a much better position.

Amber: That’s right.

Brian: So, definitely, you know, and the market right now for rentals, just like for sales,is really strong.

So you can hold out for the right tenant.

Amber: Right.

Absolutely.

There’s tons of investors in the market that are snappingup the houses and turning them, holding them for a period of five to ten and even twentyyears, in some cases.

And they’re renting those properties out.

And there’s a highdemand for rentals.

There are so many people moving to Houston on a weekly basis, so, yeah,there’s a need out there.

And at every turn that you make here in Houston, you see newapartment complexes going up.

Brian: Everywhere.

It’s crazy.

Amber: Yeah.

And occupancy rate is very high right now, so rentals, they are a great investment.

Brian: So you can hold out for a good tenant.

If you’re going to rent your house, holdit out for a good tenant.

Amber: You can, but again, that just dependson if you have note on that house that you need to pay.

Yeah, if you’re in a bind financially,then that’s going to effect on how long you hold out for a good tenant.

9:04:15.

5) When is right time to sell Brian: Right.

Oh, I guess, that’s true,too.

How do you know when it’s the right time to sell? You know, there are a lot ofthings about the time of year or the market.

Obviously, the market, the perception is themarket is very strong in Houston, which it is, but what do you tell people when theyask you, what is the right time to sell my house?Amber: Well, you know, many people are looking to sell during the summertime.

That summertimefrenzy starts right in May and goes until about the end of August, beginning of September.

And that’s when you run into situations where you have multiple offers and there’sjust, you know, it’s not uncommon to have your house shown ten times a day.

So, butthat’s a time where people are moving.

You know, teachers are out of school for the summer.

Their kids are out of school for the summer.

And so it’s just more convenient to moveduring that time.

Generally, though, when people are lookingfor a house, if they’re going to be looking for a really good deal, they know the seasonsand they know to hold off.

Only people who really need to sell their house are goingto put their house on the market during Christmas time or during the holiday season.

Brian: Right.

Amber: So, if that’s something that you’refaced with, if it’s possible to put your house on the market during the frenzy, thebuying frenzy, I would definitely recommend it.

If not, you may take a hit in the priceby putting it on the market during the holiday season.

Brian: What’s the cut-off point? Like, if I have a house ready, can I put it on themarket November 1st? Is that too close to Thanksgiving? What is your opinion?Amber: There are people, sometimes, there are so many people moving into Houston, alot of relo’s are happening.

So there will be people, those people come any time of theyear.

Brian: Right.

Amber: And they still need to buy, just like everyone else.

And because we have such adeficit of homes and listings on the market available, right now, you’re not seeingthat impact as greatly as we did several years ago.

Brian: Right.

So really, any time right now in Houston is a good time to sell a house.

Amber: Absolutely.

(0:06:14.

3) Homestead ExemptionBrian: One of the other things that I see is, in our business, because we’re alwaysbuying, selling, buying, selling.

So we’re always closing houses and the fourth quarterof the year that, you know, November, December, October, those months can be some of our busiestmonths.

And one of the reasons I see in the past couple of years is the Homestead Exemption.

Doesn’t the Homestead Exemption cut off at the end of the year? You have to file forit by December 31st, don’t you, for the following year?Amber: You have to live in that house by December 31st.

Brian: Live in it.

Amber: Yes, of that year, in order to fileit for January.

Brian: So, there’s often a push to get closingsdone in the last weeks of the year so that you can get that Homestead Exemption.

Amber: There is.

And if you work with investors, like a lot of us do, then you’ll find abig push, you know, people are needing to make wise investments before the end of theyear for tax purposes.

So we usually, November, December, are some of our busiest months.

Brian: Yeah, they are.

Well, what else can you tell us about when to sell your house?Amber: Well, let’s see.

Brian: Or when you need to sell it.

Amber: Or sell it when you need to sell it.

Exactly right.

As far as seasons go, gosh(laughter).

I’m drawing a blank.

Brian: Well, that’s a really good start.

So if you want to rent your house, you can contact a good real estate agent, like yourself,and how can we reach you at? Amber: CarringtonRealEstateServices.

Com.

Brian: Okay, so CarringtonRealEstateServices.

Com.

If you want to sell your house fast and youdon’t want to list it and you don’t want to fix it, or if you’re a landlord that’stired of being a landlord, you can contact us at BigStateHomeBuyers.

Com.

But for theperson that wants to rent their house out, and I agree, get yourself a good agent.

Makesure you screen the tenants.

Hold out, if you can, for the good tenant that’s stablewith a job they’ve had for a while and good rent history.

And if you want to sell it,even though the seasons, the old thing is sell in the summer, hold in winter.

If you’rein Houston and you want to sell your house, it looks like any time is the time to do it.

Amber: Any time is a good time.

Brian: Great.

So again, I’m Brian Spitzwith Big State Home Buyers and we are here with Amber Carrillo with Carrington Real EstateServices and thank you very much for joining us.

Amber: You got it.

Brian: Great.

Thank you.

6 Steps On How To Sell A House Fast And For Top Dollar

All right now, before you go find a very fastmoving bus and decide to throw a local real estate agent in front of it, what if I toldyou there's a way that you can sell your house for top dollar and fast.

And what if I alsotold you that you would be doing this and not losing any sleep at night, worrying aboutwhether you received top dollar and squeezed every penny out of your sale.

I'm going toshow you exactly how we use video, the Internet, pictures and a lot of other on line marketingstrategies to do just that.

My name is Mike Cuevas and I'm the creatorof Chicago Real Estate Dude website and this is not your ordinary real estate agent website.

This site was put together solely for the purpose of educating the mass public, peoplelike yourself, on how to sell a house fast and how to sell it for top dollar.

So look around.

You see what you see on line.

There are a lot of sellers selling their housesand moving into new ones and it seems to be seamless.

However, the problem that most sellershave before they decide to list their home on the market is where do you start.

Who doyou call, what agent, or what company do you use.

What is their marketing plan? Does theirmarketing plan include what it takes to get the mass exposure so that you can receivetop dollar? What about your closing cost? What about the pre-approval price on a newpurchase? All of these questions are common questionsthat a lot of sellers in your shoes have.

Look at this property right here.

This propertywas listed without an on line marketing plan.

When we first found this property, it wason the market for over 256 days with no [press agents 00:01:46] whatsoever.

Now once theychanged agents and hired us, we had a full on line marketing plan to it and it sold inunder 30 days and only for a $19,000 differential from their original asking price.

The difference?An on line marketing plan.

[00:02:00] So as you can see, listing and selling yourhouse in todays' market is simply no walk in the park.

You do have to do a little bitmore than just put a sign in the yard, list it on the multiple listing service, crossyour fingers and just hope an offer is going to come in.

You need a full on line marketingplan.

So here's exactly what you are going to getstarted on right below.

The first thing I'm going to show you is howto use and properly use the Internet for an on line marketing strategy that is going toraise the masses.

The second thing I'm going to show you is how do you properly use professionalpictures and videos to reach a mass audience through a social media platform such as Facebook,Linked-in and U-tube, just to name a few.

Now if you've ever seen a property on linethat looks better on line than it actually did when you went and saw it, I'm going toshow you exactly how we use those jet eye marketing mind tricks to have buyers thinkingthe exact same thing about your property.

The last thing we're going to cover is thatyou should.

are going to get a true idea and feeling of what your closing costs aregoing to be so that you know what your net walk-away figure is once you do close on thatproperty.

Now I created this site as a one stop resourceso that people can get real information and I can share all my secrets on how I sell homesthe right way for top price.

If you have any additional questions, all you have to do issimply just ask me.

I'll get back to you in 24 hours.

So what I want you to do right now, if you have any specific questions for me, is goahead and enter in your information in the contact form to your right and I will be gladto contact you within 24 hours.

If not, simply feel free to go around the site and checkout anything that you want.

How to Sell More Custom Homes as a Builder – and have HAPPY Customers – 2017

Hello, and welcome.

If you're watchingthis video, then you're a builder, and like many builders, you're struggling toget clients.

And you're struggling to get them to pay the prices you know you haveto ask for.

I mean, the building industry, as you know, you either tell people exactlyevery element that it's going to cost them, and then they don't use you because you're too expensive.

Or you hide back some things, and then you quote them, butthen you let the client down because they end up getting hit with a billthey weren't expecting.

But at least you get the client.

It's so hard to get people tounderstand all the eccentricities of the building process, even for thesehighly successful people that are buying their massive homes.

Because they just — it's so foreign to them.

And you feel like you need to explain it.

Andeverything just becomes so hard and so complex.

And if you make it complex,they don't buy off you, so you keep it simple, but then they don't understand, and it's kindof a catch-22.

And you don't know what to do about it.

But I do, and I want to sharethat with you.

My name is Matthew Pollard and I am the Rapid Growth Guy.

And I want toshare with you a story of Bethany, who invited me to come and speak to a groupof builders that she had organized.

And these were all big businesses — they were$2M builds, $1M builds, $5M builds.

Very successful business owners, but she decided they all needed to understandrapid growth, because they were all struggling with the same thing.

They wereall struggling with other builders that were just trying to compete on one thing — price.

And she needed to help themunderstand how it could be done differently.

She came to me because Ihave taught 3500 trades people — builders, electricians, plumbers, in Australia — andshe decided that I had that unique expertise to share with them.

See, veryfew people, as I'm sure you know, have the expertise of the building market.

Especially in sales and marketing.

I mean, realistically, no one really speaks tothe builders' market.

But I've done it for years.

And what I help these people do,inside a 45-minute workshop, is really break down exactly what differentiatedthem, the competencies that they had that wereseparate to every other builder.

Every single person in the room came up with adifferent answer, but it was the right answer for them, because it was based ontheir unique competencies.

I mean, think about it: You have different experiences,different education, you've had different customers than everybody else in thebuilding industry, and it makes you uniquely placed to help one specificdemographic of customers.

And with Bethany's group, we helped her do that for every singlebuilder in the room.

It was a 45-minute workshop.

And now, I want to show you howyou can do it yourself.

I'm going to share with you things that I have notshared with anyone outside the scope of my one-on-one clients.

And we don't justhave 45 minutes together, we're going to have over an hour, and you're gonna beable to ask me questions, while her people never could.

I can't wait to showyou this intimate information in our webinar together.

Before we get to that,though, I'm all about transparency.

So I want to hear from Bethany and herexperience of me in that 45-minute workshop, and the outcomes that she sawcome out of it.

And then I want to show you in intimate detail through thewebinar exactly how you can rapidly grow your business.

Just click on the linkbelow, hear from Bethany, and then I'll see you in the upcoming webinar.

I lookforward to seeing you there.
