5 Ways To Win Big In A Buyer’s Market

Tanya LaRose 0 comments 01.08.2017

  1. Be Prepared – Attractive buyer’s hold the most power in any real estate transaction. These ideal buyer’s are pre-approved for a mortgage and have no other home to sell or have an accepted offer on their current home. By preparing accordingly, it increases your chances of getting the property you want on the terms you want.
  2. Be Watchful – Even in a down market, nice homes that are priced well do not last long. Your real estate agent can connect you to the MLS® system so that you will automatically receive new listings within a desired criteria. Receiving this information in real time will give you an upper hand over other competing buyer’s not utilizing an agent or this service. Combine this with a readily available real estate agent and you will secure your new home in no time!
  3. Be Informed – Before deciding on an amount to offer, you will want to know what other similar properties in the area have sold for so you are not overpaying. Real estate agents have such statistics at their fingertips, so be sure you discuss fair market value with your agent before submitting an offer.
  4. Be Strategic – Once you have found the property you would like to further pursue, find out how long it has been on the market and how many times it has been listed without selling in the last couple of years. This information is easily accessible to your real estate agent and is vital in negotiations.
  5. Be Creative – There is more than one way to increase monetary value in your real estate purchase than through price alone. If you are buying a house and the seller will not budge on price, your real estate agent can negotiate other inclusions such as a replacing old windows, re-shingling a roof, or improving another feature unique to the house. The implications of this negotiating technique can be tricky, so you will need to work closely with your real estate agent on this one.

How To Support Local Business

Tanya LaRose 0 comments 12.07.2016

The foundation of any successful local business can be attributed to the support it receives from the community. I have never paid for reviews or testimonials, and do not pressure my clients into providing such. However, I stumbled across a letter of recommendation that I was absolutely elated to receive. It was a great form of support and a reminder that hard work does not go unnoticed.

"The Whitecap Development Corporation believes in developing partnerships that bring skill and experience to task for successful projects. In 2015, based on demonstrated professionalism and skill-set, the real estate services of licensed REALTOR® Tanya LaRose were requested for a project. Upon request, Tanya promptly completed a Market Appraisal for the property and discussed effective pricing to maximize value while still attracting potential buyers. In a matter of days, the property was on MLS® and receiving inquiries. As our representation, she created and implemented a marketing strategy specific to the type of location of the property. During the sale process, we received consistent market updates, detailed feedback from each showing, and advice on how to improve showing quality accordingly. The property was initially vacant, but Tanya took the initiative to stage it with furniture to attract more buyers. Two weeks after staging, an offer was received, promptly delivered for decision, and ultimately accepted. Overall, the services provided proved to be calculated and effective. The Whitecap Development Corporation welcomes positive business relationships with entities practicing a high standard of service such as that provided by Tanya LaRose."

To the Whitecap Development Corporation, and all of my other past, present and future clients – THANK YOU.
