This 1-minute video shows some features and benefits of using the Real Scout home search app AND I am featuring the BHHS home search app. Both excellent.
**My Favorite MLS Live App **
Compare three houses at the same time. Three kitchens side by side, Bedrooms side by side, etc. The program uses “AI” to give you the best understanding of the properties.
I will set up your seachr Criteria for you.
Berkshire Hathaway uses an advance save and search feature that you will love. It's your very own MLS website. Do everything from this site, schedule viewings, ask questions, etc. I highly recommend it.
I will send you an invitation to “Home.com” the old “HomeSnap”
It allows you to walk the property lines Virtually.
I usually set up Real Scout for you, but you can access it and make it your own, click the sign-in, and create a username and password.
How to use the Comparative side by side. The best feature of the app.
I will get notified that you messaged me and will get back to you ASAP. I prefer to communicate using this app.
Buyers always think they can get a lower price or commission reduction by contacting the Agent with the yard sign. (The Listing Agent) This idea is not to your benefit and will NOT WORK. Why? The Listing Agent has a fiduciary duty to get the most money for their home seller. They may lose their licenses if they act in bad faith if they talk to the seller about lowering their price for a quick commission. (Regardless of how you have seen business done in the past)
Before the house goes in the MLS, a commission is offered to any Buyer’s Agent who uses the MLS; the commission is already negotiated before you even see the home for sale. (It's "Baked In" already) The seller has already agreed to pay the commission and calculated it into the house sale.
The only way to get a good deal is to use a good Buyer’s Agent (Realtor) with a fiduciary duty to bring you the lowest price that works for you. The Buyers Agent and Seller Agents model creates an “Open Market” scenario that “Shines Sunlight” for buyers and sellers. Note: Real Estate in California should be sold in a “Public Market Scenario” to avoid Serious issues.
The best way to control commissions is to request a Buyers Broker Agreement with your agent. Within this contract, you can control the commission and services of your agent. I prefer to use a Buyer’s Broker Agreement because I want you to know what services I will be performing; this way, you know I am doing a good job. Make sense?
When purchasing anything in life, if the seller thinks excited and eager to buy, the seller will not negotiate.
Solution? Don’t talk to the seller’s agent. (Just say hello, thank you, and good buy) Then tell me your thoughts when we are no longer in the Sellers line of sight. Trust me, the Seller’s Agent will call me for your opinion an hour or two after you leave. If the Seller’s Agent saw you get excited, they will tell their Home Sellers to not take the first offer from you. (Yes, it’s a game, but me play the game for you in San Diego.)
If the loan officer sees that you have a house in mind, they start to think about their mortgage commissions and forget to offer you the best and most enticing deals they use to encourage folks to buy a home.
Get Pre-Approved, NOT Pre-Qualified, they are different levels of Qualifications. If you want to make a strong offer, be pre-Qualified! Pre-Approval is a 5 min online check that is worthless.
Let me work with you with selecting a Finance person in San Diego. (It may be the most significant help I can offer)
Everybody has different thoughts and ideas about what their perfect home looks like. I will be listening to what you want intensely. IF you can give me a little time, I will find your perfect home at the price you need. Most of my buyers get depressed when they look at the money they must spend and what type of house is available in San Diego. Stay positive! New houses “pop up” all the time, and if you are pre-qualified, your house will find you. 😊 I am always positive, and I will encourage you to stay positive also. I will get you into your perfect home, have confidence.
I have many websites that do different tasks. The apps I offer are “state of the art” Apps. Use the one that best fits your personality. Or just use my Berkshire Hathaway website. (They are all easy). All Free Home Search App's
Get your reports and pay for them yourself. Do you really think the home seller will tell you about everything wrong with their home? Some Sellers do not have the highest ethics, or maybe they don’t want to know what’s wrong with their house. (Ever seen somebody hide from their problems?)
Choose your inspectors; pay for them yourself. It is cheaper to pay now than be disappointed or get in a legal battle later.
The benefit of using me is when it is time to negotiate. (This is my specialty) but if for some reason negotiations are not really needed, my attention to detail and contracts will come in handy. I am your friend in the Real Estate Industry, I will earn your trust, and you can count on me. I have a fiduciary responsibility to my clients. Contact Me
Looking at new homes should be fun. I will try to keep it that way.
