Hunting for a new home online is a great place to start your search, but it should not be your end all be all. Good listing agents are excellent at highlighting the best features of the home, but keep in mind there may be more than meets the eye. To make the most of your time and efforts and gather a well-rounded picture of home listings online, keep the following three things in mind.

 

  1. Stay up to date. When you start your search, make sure you find a site that pulls up-to-date listings directly from the multiple listing service (MLS) where real estate agents actively post their most current homes for sale. Many online resources update less often or fail to remove listings that are off the market, making it more difficult to sort through the clutter.
  2. Pictures can be deceiving. Real estate photographers are experts at showing a home in the best possible light. Many use tools and strategies to boost appeal, such as a fish eye lens to make areas look larger and creative editing to make colors and textures really pop. But, often listings will not contain photos of unappealing parts of the home, like small closets or outdated bathrooms.
  3. See it to believe it. Once you find what appears to be your dream home online, call up your real estate agent and schedule a showing. You want to take the opportunity to vet the home in person and explore every part of it before beginning the offer process. Your real estate agent will help you cover all your bases and will ask questions you may not have thought of.

Many sellers may be tempted to select the highest offer they receive, but there are several other factors to consider. Here are five areas important to evaluate.

 

  1. Down payment. The size of the down payment should be heavily considered when comparing offers. It is often tied to the size of the loan the buyer is taking out and a larger one indicates higher financial stability.
  2. Earnest money deposit. The EMD is the sum of cash the buyer is willing to put up when the sales agreement is signed to show their high level of interest in purchasing the home. If they back out of the transaction without a good reason, the seller typically keeps it, and if the sale goes through, it typically goes towards their down payment.
  3. Contingencies are standard for most offers and outline the evaluations and appraisals that need to be completed before the sale is final, such as financing, appraisal, sale of current home, title, and home inspection. The fewer contingencies, the higher the chance of reaching the closing table.
  4. All-cash offer. Not only does putting down an all-cash offer boost the likelihood of loan approval, but the buyer will not need an appraisal or financing contingency, reducing the chance of the sale falling through.
  5. Closing date. Consideration of the closing date differs for each seller. For example, if you have already purchased a new home, you may want to close quickly. But, if you are waiting on the money from the sale to start house hunting, you may be okay with a slower settlement.

Selling your home can be an exciting, but stressful time. Luckily you are not alone in this process. Finding the right listing agent is key to having a successful, smooth experience. Your listing agent will help you price and market your home, negotiate with home buyers, and walk you through home inspection and closing. You want to find someone who has your best interest in mind and is knowledgeable and experienced. Select an agent about six to eight weeks before putting your home on the market. Ask friends and family for recommendations, do thorough review searches online, and conduct in-depth interviews with several agents before making a final decision. During each interview, make sure you clearly state your goals for the sale and what you are looking for in an agent. To help you pick the best agent for you, here’s what you should consider.

 

  • Are they a full-time agent?
  • How many years have they been a listing agent?
  • Have they sold any homes in your neighborhood in the past year?
  • What types of homes/properties do they normally list?
  • What is their process for marketing homes?
  • What does an open house event look like for them?
  • Will you be working with the same individual throughout the process or will it be a team?
  • What is their level of responsiveness?
  • What is their average sold-to-list timeline?
  • How many listings are they managing right now?
  • What will be expected from you throughout the process?
  • What is their fee?
  • Can you talk to one of their previous clients?

 

Using this criteria, you can narrow down your options and find the right fit for you!

Mary was raised in the San Fernando Valley where her father was a Broker for 30 years. When she was twenty years old a good friend suggested she get a job with an escrow company and it turned out to be a perfect fit.

 

Mary knew, however, that when she retired it would be to pursue a career in real estate.   She took a year off then dug in to tackle a new area of the same industry, an industry she’s known for 40 years.

 

As she looks back over her career in escrow the most enjoyable times were working with first time home buyers.  Mary says it was really a delight to walk them through the transaction.

 

Her experience in escrow spans several types of transactions and different economic conditions.  Mary believes this experience uniquely qualifies her to assist and protect her clients’ best interests, with the ability to foresee and avoid problems and issues. She sees the big picture of a transaction from beginning to end and is able to work with other agents, escrow, lenders and other companies associated with a real estate transaction.

 

“Mary’s history in escrow is a gift. Frankly when you know the obstacles that can happen in a closing you can better plan to avoid them. That’s a win for everybody. That’s why not only clients, but other agents as well, enjoy working with her again and again. And we couldn’t be happier that she chose to work in our Escondido office,” says Rich Johnson, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.

Born and raised in Tiffun Ohio, Sandra Keirns grew up close to family. Spending her time at the local lake, Sandra enjoyed summer activities such as water skiing and Friday night ball games. While she dreamed of being a wife and a mother, Sandra’s goals aimed her toward Real Estate after the purchase of her first home.

 

Sandra’s life experiences have allowed her the unique ability to relocate on multiple occasions. As she moved from state to state traveling with her husband on business, Sandra learned just how much she loved meeting new people along the way.

 

After a business opportunity presented itself to Sandra’s husband, they found themselves moving from Coral Springs Florida to San Diego California. Once her husband accepted the position, their family moved to Carlsbad where they awaited their new home to be built in 1987.

 

With Real Estate experience from Virginia to Florida, Sandra was grateful to have ended up out on the West Coast where she could get her third state license as a Realtor. As a resident of Carlsbad, Sandra was excited to be living in the area with her family. While Sandra watches her dream come true as her new home was built, Sandra was excited for the opportunity to be selling beautiful homes, similar to hers, to her future clients in the neighborhood.

 

“From state to state there’s one thing you find true in real estate. You’re always learning. And what you learned in the last deal, and the one before that, all equip you with the tools you need to solve the next round of transaction details. We value that experience because real estate is always changing, and we’re delighted that Sandra has chosen to work with our Carlsbad team,” says Brian Gooding, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.

 

Sandra now joins Windermere Homes & Estates, working out of their Carlsbad office location, found at 300 Carlsbad Village Dr. #223, Carlsbad CA 92008. To reach Sandra regarding your next home purchase or sale, you can contact her direct at: 760-822-8161 | [email protected].

A native Southern California girl, Stephanie Rae Brande was born in Fallbrook. Following in her father’s footsteps, who sold land and avocado groves in Fallbrook and Deluz for many years, she tagged along with him to show properties. Stephanie developed a true passion and love of all the beautiful natural elements this region offers. Southern California’s mild climates and variety of life styles makes it a desired location to live.

 

Stephanie decided to work her way into the Real Estate Industry. She first began her business venture 4 years ago and has happily assisted clients primarily in both land and residential transactions.

 

As an Aguanga resident for 10 years and artist in the local community, Stephanie did help start a non-profit organization at her children’s school to help children in her community to learn about art when funds for art were being cut short. She helps from teaching the class, to event organization, and voluntarily raising proceeds to fund the program. Creating and participating diligently in this program for 5 years is a true testament of all efforts that allow her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for helping others to shine through.

 

Stephanie is happy to assist clients in purchasing or selling properties in areas of Riverside County, as far North as Lake Elsinore, as well as all areas of San Diego County including the back country.

 

Stephanie’s goal as a Windermere agent is to expand her business regionally and to utilize her knowledge of land sales that she has acquired over the course of her career to continue to provide exceptional service and education to her clients about our beautiful Southern California region.

 

“Stephanie is all about people, and her energy inspires the lives she touches.  She works hard, keeps current in our industry and knows North County backwards and forwards.  A perfect fit to our Escondido office,” says Rich Johnson, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.

Teri’s family had a short relocation to North Carolina, but ended up back in beloved San Diego.

While both Bill & Teri always thought they’d live on the coast, they fell in love with the Lake Hodges area and the beautiful surrounding of nature that came with it. They settled there together and are current residents of Escondido.

Teri’s career in real estate started when she befriended one of the top producing agents in La Jolla. Through her mentoring and encouragement, Teri got her license in 1998. Teri explains, “It was the perfect career for me, I had worked in advertising and the home improvement business up to then. Both of which gave me great training to succeed in real estate. I have been continuously in the President and Chairman’s Circles during my career. I have worked hard to build a 5 star rating on Zillow with almost 40 reviews.”

Working out of the Escondido office, Bill & Teri work with clients all over San Diego County. Having been in San Diego for over 50 years, they are very proud that over 90% of their business is referral based, from Imperial Beach to Alpine and Valley Center.

“Bill & Teri are true customer service professionals.  They understand that their help can be what makes the client’s experience a good one, and they strive to achieve that with each and every person with whom they work.  We’re looking forward to working with Bill & Teri, and we’re happy they chose to join us at our Escondido location,” says Rich Johnson, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.
