Comparative Market Analysis: Maximizing Market Value
The preparation of a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is an important tool I will use to help sellers earn the highest price for a home. CMA's involve looking at public records of real estate businesses in the community to better understand market conditions.
Sold Properties: I will consider the amount paid for recently sold comparable homes in the community. These homes are comparable in size and amenities and give a clear reflection of what the MARKET (buyers) are willing pay.
Currently For Sale: The next step is to consider the asking prices of properties presently listed in the community. Because these homes are similar to the ones for sale, each operates as a benchmark against which the home will be priced and will be a direct competitor for buyers in this price range.
Expired Listings: I will research asking prices in the community that went unsold within the last 90 days. Such homes indicate the price at which the MARKET (buyers) are unwilling to pay and clearly illustrates the dangers of overpricing a property.
Asking Price: Once I have conducted my research, together we will examine and arrive at an ideal asking price for your home to be sold.
FIRST TIME BUYERS & PURCHASING A NEW HOME:
There are many good reasons to buy your own home:
The Financial Advantages of Home Ownership Property is one of the greatest and most secure investments available. Rarely, does real estate decrease in value. Depending on the area, buying a house may provide tax advantages over renting. In addition, the equity built on a home’s appreciation allows for potential borrowing towards expenses such as a new home or college tuition. Home equity is also ideal as a down payment towards a second home or vacation property.
Emotional Advantages Buying a house means no longer worrying about rent increases and landlord demands. Most importantly, new homeowners can start to enjoy what matters most — building a home of their own and enjoying life.
Perhaps the first question most homebuyers ask is, «How much home can I afford?» There is no simple answer to that question as it depends on a number of factors from your current income and expenses, to available mortgage options, to the current real estate market.
The first step in the home buying process should always be to determine how much you can afford to pay for your new home. To ensure that you are working with the correct information, it is recommended that you contact a lending professional to assist you. When meeting with the mortgage professional, you will need to show your total monthly income and current monthly expenses. Financial lenders use this ratio as a rule of thumb to give a preliminary assessment about whether a potential borrower is already in too much debt.
Assuming they determine you are within acceptable perimeters, they will then calculate how much you can afford to pay on top of that debt for mortgage payment. The calculation, will include monthly mortgage payment of principle and interest and will also typically include property taxes, utilities, and in some cases condo or strata fees. As a general rule of thumb, your monthly home-carrying cost should not exceed 30-35% of your income.
There are also additional costs that will be incurred as part of the buying process and I will be able to advise you on what those potential costs might be. These could include legal fees, land transfer tax, mortgage insurance fees, home inspection fees, and of course moving costs.
Once you have figured out exactly what you want in your new home and what you can afford then it's time to start your search by viewing the houses that meet the criteria with me. Being honest and open with me, will help me provide you with the best possible service and guidance.
