What Types of Seller or Buyer Queries Do Willow Springs Licensed Brokers and Realtors Handle?

Can you see the property information pack?

Information packs are created to give to prospective buyers at viewings and open homes but can also be requested ahead of viewing. They contain information that should help you make initial decisions about whether the property meets your needs and whether you want to view it or not.
Information packs will vary between agencies but may include some of the following items:
a.A brochure or flyer including photographs and basic information about the property like the number of bedrooms.
b.A floorplan.
c.A record of title.
d.A recent LIM report.
e.A property inspection report.
f.Body corporate rules, if you're looking at an apartment.
g.Annual rates paid to the local council.
Real estate agents may provide a recent property inspection report commissioned by the seller. However, we recommend that you get your own report from an independent and accredited property inspector. If you rely on information from a seller's report to make an offer and later find that things in the report are wrong, you won't have the option to address this with the property inspector because the seller was their client, not you.
When you commission a property inspection report, make sure it is with an accredited inspector who has a good level of indemnity insurance in case you need to repair something that wasn't picked up in the report.

Do I need mortgage before buying a house?

The list price that you see online is wrapped up in one number, but the reality of buying a house comes with closing costs, a mortgage, and other considerations. Before you begin the searching process, apply for a pre-approved mortgage. This will give you an idea about how much you can afford and what you will have to pay in the next 15, 20, or 30 years. Plus, many sellers may require that buyers are already pre-approved for a mortgage. If you are fighting for the house of your dreams, you will need to do everything you can to get ahead.

What do closing costs cover?

Closing costs are the miscellaneous fees separate from the real estate agent in Willow Springs fees that must be paid at closing. They cover things such as the following:
a.Loan processing.
b.Title company fees.
c.Surveyor costs (if needed).
d.Recording of the real estate deed.
e.Insurance.
Any taxes or homeowners association fees, which may need to be prorated if they're already paid.

The amount of the real estate closing costs will vary with each home sale/purchase and can range widely from 2% to 7% of the home's purchase price. Typically, though, closing costs amount to about 3.5% of the sale price of a home, according to Leah Layman, a real estate agent in Willow Springs in Augusta, GA.
Your agent in Willow Springs will provide you with a buyer's sheet that lays out the closing costs, and by federal law, you must receive what's called a "good-faith" estimate of your closing costs from any lender you use in your real estate purchase.
As for who pays the closing costs, that's where your negotiating skills (or your Realtor's) come into play. There is no cut-and-dried rule about who'the seller or the buyer'pays the closing costs, but buyers usually cover the brunt of the costs (3% to 4% of the home's price) compared with sellers (1% to 3%).
"Most closing costs are negotiable," Reliantra says. "Do not let the Realtors or vendors convince you otherwise."
Attorney fees, commission rates, recording costs, and messenger fees can all be negotiated down.
Sometimes the buyer will have written into the contract that the seller will pay the buyer's closing costs up to a certain percentage or amount.
"That's why you need a good real estate agent in Willow Springs to negotiate a contract for you," Layman says.
If the closing costs are too steep and the sellers won't chip in as much as buyers would like, the buyers can request that real estate closing costs be rolled into the mortgage.

How long is your estate certificate active?

Once you take your real estate course and pass your test, you will get your real estate certificate. This certificate is good for four years from the date your application and passing exam are approved by the DRE.
If you find yourself with an expired license, you are no longer legally allowed to perform the duties of a real estate agent. That expiration date is sneaky and will always approach quicker than you think. You'll want to plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time to complete the renewal application and education requirements. The Department of Real Estate (DRE) will send you a reminder 60 days prior to the expiration date as a courtesy, but don't always bank on this. Sometimes addresses change, things get lost in the mail, etc. Non-receipt of the reminder doesn't exempt you from renewal.

Why I quit being a real estate agent?

The number one reason people quit real estate is that they expect to see immediate results. People expect a solid month of hard work to result in a good deal and a lot of money, and when it doesn't, they are quick to decide real estate must not be for them. The problem is, real estate is not a get-rich-quick scheme. 30 days is an incredibly short amount of time in real estate and it can take months to land your first deal.

Real estate is tough. It is a business of mental and emotional intensity. People that are offended or pushed around easily will not be successful in real estate. You must be willing to grow a thick skin and get tough in life or agents, investors, and title companies will push you around.
Losing money is the most obvious reason people quit real estate. It is completely unacceptable to lose money on a deal. If you use a margin of safety, avoid mistakes, and only do great deals you won't lose money.
Losing money is the most obvious reason people quit real estate. It is completely unacceptable to lose money on a deal. If you use a margin of safety, avoid mistakes, and only do great deals you won't lose money.

Another major reason people quit real estate is that they expect big profits with very little knowledge. People that get involved in real estate, without any prior knowledge or experience tend to blame the field if they aren't immediately making money. The truth is real estate makes a lot of people a lot of money. Whether they're buying $75,000,000 commercial properties or they're flipping little houses in the worst parts of town, people in real estate are making a killing. Using the business as an excuse for not making money, is never valid. The real problem is the lack of education. People make mistakes or are unable to execute a deal because they do not know what they are doing.

Real Estate is about big paydays and long payment delays, but when you make those big paydays it gets exciting! Someone can make $50,000 or $100,000 in one deal, which is more than most people earn in an entire year. Money can be a big driver, for why people quit, but it shouldn't be because the business amazing.

We want to encourage you to not give up on this business because every new experience is a new distinction. If you stick with real estate long enough, you're going to be very thankful that you did. Anyone who has stuck with real estate long-term has been very happy with the results. The money is huge. The key is to not give up because once you get real estate dialed in, it is an amazing experience. Don't ever give up!

Don't ever give up!
