Exclusive Buyer’s Real Estate Agent
(continued from page 1)
Buckeye Real Estate facts:
As of May 16, 2014, there are 538 Buckeye homes for sale with prices from $47,500 – $1,399,000, but in April 2014, 147 homes in Buckeye sold, which means that the typical Buckeye home sells in less than 3.5 months. Does this information help the home buyer or the home seller? By providing you with the answers and data like this, it’s clear that we can help you in a lot of ways and be very beneficial to you as your Exclusive Buyer’s Agent.
As your Buckeye Exclusive Buyer’s Agents, we will provide you with information about any home to help you make informed decisions, such as:
- status of current Buckeye, AZ market
- how many days a property has been on the market,
- seller motivation,
- price reduction history,
- will the home qualify for your type of loan,
- information on the area (retail, construction, planned freeway routes, etc.)
- comparable sales to make a good offer,
- tax liens,
- which homes are short sales,
- make certain the person selling the home is the legal owner or has the legal right to sell the home,
- make certain the seller complies with all real estate rules & laws
- guide you through the complicated avalanche of paperwork that is required
- determine which properties qualify for your loan type, because not only to buyers have to qualify for a home loan, but the home also has to qualify for the loan
- and much more
Setting Proper Expectations
Prior to scheduling appointments and conducting showings, and certainly before you start writing purchase offers, it is imperative that we have a frank and honest discussion with each other about what to expect out there.
Most Buckeye home buyers do not have current and accurate information on the Buckeye Real Estate market. A lot still feel that they’re doing sellers a “favor” by making an offer because they think the market is terrible. When I tell you that you may have to pay full list price — or perhaps even more depending on where the community and other factors — you are likely going to think I’m crazy. On the other hand, there are still some factors and data that we can use to justify fierce negotiations, but the sooner we can talk about current and accurate information on the Buckeye Real Estate market and focus on credible data, the sooner I can actually get down to the business of helping you find and buy your Buckeye home.
I will come prepared with data when we meet. For instance, real estate data may reflect the 3 of the most recently sold homes in a popular community in Buckeye sold for 103% of the asking price, or the data may show that the homes are selling for 20% below asking price. I may show you that money is cheap now and what it would have cost you to buy the same home five years ago when there were much higher interest rates and much higher purchase prices. We are in a competitive market, but even at or slightly over the asking price, buyers are seeing substantial deals today. What you need is the information that I can provide you so that you can make better decisions.
Thinking outside the box
I’ve been to so many networking events where I hear agents complaining about how their client has been looking in such and such neighborhood, but nothing ever comes on the market or stays on the market for more than a few days.
Rather than wasting time feeling sorry, I am more creative in how to approach the situation.
I had clients who were looking to buy in a particular community, but the competition for properties that hit the market was beyond white hot. We were constantly losing out to other buyers who are better positioned to get their offers accepted by offering cash.
Instead of throwing my hands up, we simply decided to target off-market properties by searching the tax records and mailing hand-addressed letters asking home owners if they’d be willing to entertain the notion of selling us their home.
This strategy has allowed us to completely circumvent the heavy competition for those properties when they hit the MLS, and my clients loved me for thinking outside the box.
In 2012, the supply of available homes for sale decreased to an all-time low. However, a thin real estate market, in many ways, signals the stabilization of the real estate market. In 2014, there are a plethora of Phoenix Metro area properties for sale. But unfortunately, it brings with it some unique challenges I will need to address if you want to work together in this challenging real estate market. With a little planning and creativity, we can easily turn this challenge into a catalyst for getting you the home you want.

*There is a potential for “limited dual agency” if client purchases a property listed by HomeSmart. If my client places an offer on a property that is listed by HomeSmart, I will be working, not as an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent, but as a limited dual agent with some limits to representation, but still more than what an exclusive seller’s agent can offer.
