How to Get a Financial Statement for Your Property

What does it mean to have a financial statement for your home? Why should you have one?


Most people will admit that buying or selling a home is the single largest transaction that they’re likely to do in their life. However, the reality is that we don’t always treat it that way. We have bank statements, stock statements, retirement statements, credit card statements, and even a mortgage statement—but there’s no financial statement for our homes in general that allow us to view it as an asset.


On that front, we have good news: We’ve partnered with a great company that will offer you just such a financial statement on your home. This is more than a home valuation, which you can find on your own. Rather, it’s a tool that will help you determine:




1. If you could pay off your property earlier than you planned
2. How much you could ...

Why You Absolutely Should Hire an Agent When Buying New Construction

Do you need an agent when buying new construction? Yes, and here’s why. Looking to buy a home? Search all homes hereLooking to sell your home? Get a free home value report
If you plan on buying a new construction home soon, it’s absolutely in your benefit to hire an agent.
 
Don’t buy into the myth that you’ll save on commission fees if you don’t hire an agent and buy straight from the builder. The builder (i.e., the seller of that home) factors in a commission fee for another agent whether you hire your own agent or not.
 
The key thing to remember is that representation doesn’t cost you a thing when buying a new construction home. Representation may not feel necessary when previewing new construction homes or when writing the initial purchase contract, but it’s easy to feel all alone during the contract-to-close period if you don’t have an agent by your side. 
 
Salespeople for new construction homes have a ...

Why Fall Is Still a Good Time to Sell

Looking to buy a home? Search all homes hereLooking to sell your home? Get a free home value report

Though the spring and summer markets do tend to see more activity, that doesn’t mean that you can’t find real estate success in the fall. Today I’ll share three reasons why you shouldn’t discount selling your home this autumn.


Interest rates are falling. This means that homebuyers will qualify for even more money, which in turn means there will be more people able to purchase your home.


There’s less competition. With the business of the holiday season, many people just don’t want to list their homes this time of year. That means there will be fewer homes on the market for yours to compete with, but there are still buyers out there looking for homes.


Our population grows in the winter. Because we have such beautiful weather in Phoenix, we get a lot of winter visitors. In fact, our population actually grows this time of ye ...

What Most Realtors Don’t Want You To Know About Zillow, Open Door, and Others

Most real estate agents don’t want you to know about iBuyers, but today we’ll discuss their merits.Looking to buy a home? Search all homes for sale hereLooking to sell your home? Get a free home value report

Let’s face it—even we can admit that buying and selling a home isn’t always the most pleasant experience. Sometimes it can be downright painful. That’s part of the appeal to selling a home to an iBuyer; the sheer convenience factor can help save a lot of money.


While many real estate agents are critical of the increasingly popular iBuyer trend, we’ve opted to embrace it. At the end of the day, we want what’s best for you and your experience.


People who sell to iBuyers do so for the convenience and the ability to control when the home will close—this is especially useful for those sellers who also have to buy another home right after. Though it may not always net the seller the most money, sometimes it’s simply ...
