Cascades Port St Lucie Local Open House Time is Teamwork Time

Cascades Port St Lucie Local Open House Time is Teamwork Time

Home available for seasonal rent!!!!  contact us today at communityinfo@comcast.net

According to the best estimate, something like 45% of home buyers use an open house viewing before making their purchase decision. I think that sounds about right – it might even be higher here in town. With such a high proportion of serious prospects choosing to drop by an open house, it’s important that we – client and agent — get it right. Under-preparing is seldom an issue: we all want to put our best foot forward when we invite the public into our home.

Yet while it may be tempting to go into overdrive for that preparation, overdoing it can be a problem, too – one that can actually turn off buyers. Some guidelines worth noting:

  • Avoid Information Overload.  It’s common practice to set out a few brochures or pamphlets that let potential buyers know something about the area. But if your flier presentation looks like it belongs in the Florida Tourist Welcome Center, or you’ve put together a local restaurant guide that comes off like a comprehensive college prospectus, your buyer may not have enough time to focus on the home while there.
  • Don’t Kill the Mood. Like many agents, I like to try to set a certain ambiance for potential buyers attending an open house. Yet I also know that when a potential buyer walks through a Port St Lucie  home, he or she needs to be able to project a personal image of the future onto it. In practice, this means that soft music is nice — top 40 is too much.  Subtle and neutral details are a plus: too much color or too many photos can be overkill.  To cater to all demographics, be sure the house is clean and uncluttered — as minimalistic as practical.
  • Keep Refreshments to a Minimum. Ensuring that potential buyers feel comfortable in your open house is the goal, so you and your agent need to draw a line between hosting a mini-buffet and being gracious but businesslike hosts.  You want to provide pleasant and positive refreshments, but an elaborate spread taking over the kitchen and wafting all variety of aromas through the house is distracting. I’ve always been a fan of the classic cheese and crackers display (though I’ve sometimes found it appropriate to add a cookbook propped open to bring to emphasize an especially well thought-out kitchen design).

When you plan your own Cascades open house, you and your agent should make the most of the strong points of your offering – being careful not to upstage them. Call me anytime if you are looking for one of those kinds of agents. I am one who will be your strong partner from the moment you list until the last closing doc is signed!

Important Questions To Ask Your Home Inspector

7 Apr

Important Questions To Ask Your Home Inspector.

You know when you are buying a home, that you will need a home inspection.  But when it comes time to read the inspection report you feel like you need a translator!  Here are a few important questions you should definitely ask your home inspector to help you understand the inspection report before closing the deal.

1.  Clarify what is truly bad.  Have the inspector tell you exactly what is really bad, what will need to be fixed right away and what can wait.  Also,  have him let you know what he put in the report that he just wanted to let you know about, but was not a necessary repair.  This is important because the inspector may have something noted under the category “Health & Safety Hazards” and all it is a small plumbing issue that would only cost a few dollars to fix.  So it is important to clarify everything.

2   How hard is that to fix?  You should ask the inspector how something should be fixed and they will usually be more than happy to explain to you how easy the repair is to do yourself.  If it is not a simple fix, they may have someone they can refer to you to have the repair done professionally.  Additionally, they can also tell you about how much the repair should cost, whether you do the repair yourself or have it done professionally.  This information can be invaluable when you are not sure about a particular repair.

3.  If it were you, what would you do?  Ask the home inspector what they think you should have fixed or not fixed, whatever the case may be.  It is the home inspectors job to point out every little thing in their report.  That’s what you are paying them for remember.  So find out what is and isn’t a necessary fix.

4.  Get clarification on anything you don’t understand.  Sometimes the inspection report contains a term or a repair that you have no clue what they are referring to.  Ask the inspector to show you each and every item on the report that does not make sense.  It is going to be your new home for years to come and you need to understand everything about it.

5.  How does that work?  There will inevitably be one or maybe several mechanical systems that you don’t know how to work.  Most home inspectors would be more than happy to show you how to operate everything.  But you have to ask.  So go through the entire house and make a list of everything you think you may need help with – then ask.

The home inspection is one of the most important things you will be doing when buying a new home.  Finding out any major defects etc. could keep you from buying a money pit or could help you to renegotiate the deal if many repairs are needed.  Get your realtor involved in the process.  Your agent sees hundreds of homes every year and you might be quite surprised at what they can point out before you even begin the inspection process.
