Sunday Seattle Times Real Estate article, March 29, 2009: "Inside Tips From Savvy Agents"

Yesterday, when I saw the title for the Sunday Seattle Times Real Estate section: “Inside Tips From Savvy Agents“.   I thought  “cool”  let’s see what kinds of tips other real estate agents are sharing with their clients…..
 * Sigh *    

*Jumps onto soapbox*

The tips in the article are more like resumes (or advertising)  for those agents rather than geared as INSIDE Seattle Real Estate Tips from Savvy Agents for Home Buyers and Sellers.  Today, while writing this article, and linking it, I see that the online article now has a different title:  “Top Seattle Area Real Estate Agents Share Their Secrets for Sucess”.  Which is a better title for the article than the title for the content of the printed article. 

*Jumps off soapbox

So, now I will  share with You,  Three “INSIDE” Tips for Home buyers looking for a DEAL in todays’ Seattle real estate market.  These have come up recently with one of my clients……

  1. Be Patient.  Take the time to throughly look at what is on the market before you buy, to make sure you choose the best house for You.  You are going to live there for a while, and there are no quick turn arounds like in recent years.  Thankfully the Internet allows easy access to excellent home search sites so you can shop away!  Wish I could have done the same when I bought my house is 1997. 
  2. Don’t pass a on great home (and DEAL) due to poor marketing.  One of my pet peeves is the poor marketing done on many short sale and bank owned homes.  There are some really great deals out there now right now, if you can find them.  Some listings are not noted in the public marketing remarks that they are short sales or bank owned homes, so that can be a challenge.   Many of these end up being passed over, and languish on the market because of the listing agents half-hearted marketing photos and marketing remarks.  Also, be sure your real estate agent is willing to look into the past sales history of the house, and send you those listings too, since those can have valuable information, as well as much better photos.  Your agent should include their insight on what that can mean to you.
  3. Don’t become complacent.  When you do find THE house, don’t allow yourself to become complacent and think you can ask for the world….especially if it’s already a  DEAL.  You will likely miss out to another buyer who recognizes the DEAL and acts swiftly with a stronger offer.

Now…let’s find a DEAL!

    If you are planning to design and decorate your house or office, it will be a good idea to opt for furniture packages instead of picking and choosing individual pieces of furniture. Although it is quite interesting to hunt for unique and individual furniture pieces, it can be quite expensive for a large home or a big office. Furniture packages will be the better option in such a case.
