Many might think that selling their own property by themselves should not be a difficult task to do, I mean why not saving some commission money by not hiring a Real Estate professional, but little they know that this could cause to lose a higher percentage of money acting this way.
A study by Collateral Analytics reveals that FSBOs (For Sale By Owners) don’t actually save anything, and in some cases may be costing themselves even more by not listing with an agent. These are some of the downfalls you could experience while trying to sell your house by yourself:
- Scams can happen
- Sellers can get stuck in a bad deal
- FSBOs sell for less
- FSBOs lack representation
- Inspections are problematic
- Marketing is limited
- Hidden costs add up
Have in mind that between mistakes, lack of negotiating skills, pricing errors, and a poor exposure on the market might result in hurting your wallet more than a Real Estate Commission. Get a better deal and avoid the hassle by using an expertise service.
3. With ??Memorial Day?? coming up, we would like to inform you about the VA Home Loan.
The VA home loan benefit was part of the original GI Bill in 1944. Not only did Congress want to help veterans obtain an education, it wanted to help them buy a home.
Florida Veterans and Active Duty service members can take advantage of the benefits afforded to them by the VA Home Loan Program to buy or refinance a personal home. A VA Mortgage presents them the possibility for a no down payment home purchase, along with less rigorous qualification requirements.
To be eligible for a VA Loan, a military member must serve 90 consecutive days on active duty during wartime, or 181 days during peacetime, or six years in the Guard or Reserves, even the spouse of a service member who has died in the line of duty or as the result of a service-related disability can qualify.
