**  Price of house has been reduced.  Asking price of house is subject to increase or taken off  market at owner's discretion.

Seller challenges ability of duplicating this house in a prime location for less than his asking price. 

The present financial  crisis has resulted in the scarcity and unavailability of skilled labor and prime building materials.  It would behoove many 'real estate gurus' to become aware of this reality before insisting the homeowner reduce his home to the ridiculous.

Please note:  This home has many custom features and it is not easily comparable to other real estate listings.  The seller is aware of this and wishes to advise of his position in the matter.  The house must be appealing to the potential buyer/s and appreciated for all of its amenities.  Since other homes in this small development have sold for less money because they were smaller, didn't have the same amenities,  were not  updated or in mint condition when put on the market, the Seller will not be persuaded to change the selling price to accommodate buyer's or agent's mistaken  understanding that those houses were equal in dollar value to this house. This home is special and is what it is advertised to be. . . a lovely, well kept, much desired piece of real estate.  In addition, it is situated in a most desirable location which lends considerably to its value.

Also, if you wish to see the house and are not represented by a real estate agent or broker, you will be expected to show proof of your identity and have available an authentic letter from bank or credit establishment that you have qualified for a certain $$$ amount of mortgage (These requirements are mandatory and will be enforced for the owner's protection).  

Thank You.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you had a Credit Check?

Do you have a mortgage?  What is the $$$ amount of the mortgage available to you?  (A bridge-loan (mortgage) will not be acceptable to Seller since it it contingent on you selling your home).  Based on your mortgage amount, do you have necessary cash to meet the difference towards price of this home?  Usual down payment is 20% - 25%.

Do you presently own a home?  Is it listed on the market?  Are you in contract with a buyer?  

Are you prepared to go to contract with Seller now?

Please do not contact Seller unless you are ready to buy (go to contract).

Are you a first time buyer?  If so, try to obtain some realistic facts about real estate.  Your dream home may be just that - 'a dream' - unless you can afford having a custom home built to your requirements.

Do you know your priorities?  land, area, type of home, size, amenities, price, etc?

If price is priority - while every home is negotiable, do not expect homeowner to meet your 'affordable' price. 

Are you looking for a 'handyman special'?  If so, please pass . . .   as this house is in mint condition. 

If land is your major consideration - can you afford the taxes?  How much of a travel to and from work? Neighborhood suitable?  Remember - you live inside your home 24/7 - not outside.

 

 

A message to Sellers . . .

If you have decided to sell your home without the assistance of  a real estate agent,  you are considered in the industry to be a  FSBO - For Sale By Owner.  Unless your financial circumstances dictate you 'must sell', you have probably made a very wise decision.  It has been my experience through the years that finding a committed 'Seller's agent' who has your best interest at heart is difficult - if not impossible. Your property will be ignored unless you have agreed to give your house away -  in other words - sell for much less than it is worth and above all .  . . listed on Multiple Listing. Why?  All things considered, it's easier for the agent you originally contacted to list the house and let someone else sell it especially if  your home's low price  is considered 'a bargain' throughout real estate land.  Usually, the agents aren't  interested in all the amenities your house has to offer. They are robots following their own real estate paradigm and will want to list every 3 or 4 bedroom house for the same selling price - you know the story - 'one price fits all' (they did a market analysis). 

Should you  intelligently  challenge their rationale - as to why they have appraised your custom home equal to less desirable homes - they will argue (they being the gurus) - that the 'other home/s', which weren't true comparables to yours to begin with, deserve the same selling price as your home (or even more) because they have property.  They try to convince you that it doesn't matter if the other homes aren't as spacious, appealing, well maintained or updated as your home. What's important is - they have property!   Even if the house isn't large enough to accommodate their guests for a comfortable stay-over, they  can always pitch a tent for them on  . . . the property!  It is only fitting that you know about the property taxes.  Believe me - you're going to pay for that property - big time.  And make sure you find out if the property is well manicured and landscaped - especially in the rear of the house.  One more important fact.  Be aware that unless the agent is 'up front'  that he/she is a 'Buyer's Agent' (he's watching out for his buyer - not you, dear homeowner) - his/her loyalty isn't with you, the seller;  although it should be.  Unfortunately, 99% of the agents kiss up to the 'buyer' regardless - so be alert and careful about what you tell the agent.. Most important - remember you are the expert and know what your house should sell for - not them!
And if you're told, "Buyers are educated today", you may wish to reply:  "So are Sellers!" 
And that's life in the real world.
