We can discuss so many different things in that 30 45 a minute, however long you want, frankly kind of a conversation because that will help me narrow down for you some of the best locations to give you an idea of ​​where to start looking, but really the real The real magic happens when you have done a step. two and that's contact a local lender now let me tell you why it has to be a local lender this is what a house comes on the market looks like it comes on the market monday tuesday or wednesday of a next week soon our market is very, very fast a and there are a lot of people looking to be here and there is a lot of competition for each and every house so the house coming on the market is monday tuesday or wednesday coming soon it will not be available until thursday maybe probably Friday, Saturday and Sunday. so they're going to save all the deals that are due Sunday at 6 p.m. m.
Or you know what I mean, maybe Monday at 8 am. but there's a deadline for it and then they're going to respond to all deadline offers like a new deadline for I have to put your p's and q's together but here's why a local lender is so important if I'm a seated salesperson and listing six offers and two of them are from a lender that may not have the best reputation because in our last tough economy, they didn't close on loans or one is for a bigger loan but from a lender still someone really doesn't know that probably either new to the business or another offer is from a lender that is really recognizable and has closed good loans for us real estate agents we can tell our seller to look I don't know this lender at all but he is local.
I do know this lender. He has closed so many loans for me. Nothing has ever failed me. He called me with this offer. saying hi i want you to know what looks good he sent a pre approval letter to this person for his property this is me talking to the seller that offer looks so much better just because so far only because of the lender because all objective no It doesn't matter how much money you offer someone if the loan doesn't close it's not good for the seller so put on the buyer's hat you want to do everything you can to be in the best position to get your offer accepted let's make it easy for that seller to want accept your offer the best way to do it is to use a local lender let me give you an example of what could have been a disaster last weekend i had three different groups of clients who wanted to make three different offers on the same sunday with adlines sunday having looked at houses friday and saturday the decision was made yes let's make an offer on chesapeake let's make an offer for different people who had been pre-approved with my lender brenton carter i'll show you brandon is amazing but han had already been pre-approved with him but i needed one of them to have been approved for a million because let's just say the house didn't have a median price for the house it was actually priced at a million two well no way do i want to hand the seller a pre-approval letter from brandon saying these people are approved for me and four how much do you think that house will have to sell for because they know they can buy it ?
No, what I wanted to do was get a pre-approval letter now for this specific house this specific address this specific amount of money that we are offering or the escalation clause that we are offering to that maximum that we needed to know to reassure the seller yes yes If you accept our offer, it will be accepted on Saturday an afternoon of last week after 4 p.m. m., I needed three different letters from Brandon to send our deadlines which were on Sunday. You can't get help on the weekend on something specific like that and that's specifically what you need to make your offer acceptable so the second step I'll share with you I know a lot about you and I know how I should set up your search what I don't know it's how much money we can spend we know how much you think you can spend how much you can spend that's where it matters and in a rising interest rate environment that we're in right now, even though it's still very low, it's a rising environment , so we need to know exactly how much you can afford based on today's rates I'm going to give you Brandon's info you can have a quick info call with them and I have several other people to recommend I'm just using his name he i will send a link for you to complete your online application brandon then once you are done it will send me information saying susan i reviewed all the information i was given based on this you should be able to se r well looking for a maximum sales price of this that's what it tells me so that will take me to step three but I'm not going to go to step three and frankly you really want me to because you want to start looking at houses, TRUE?
I'm not going to step three until I've heard from Brandon. I do not want to delude you with houses that are not possible for you. I do not wanna lose my time. I don't want you to lose. a good market just playing in the shallow end we're ready to go deep we're ready to find your home after you've completed step two so now it's time to get to the fun stuff wait a sec armed with the info brandon He gave me it's time for me to get to work setting up a search for you with the search criteria and th The things you've told me in our conversation and the money Brandon has you have to spend I hate being rude.
Let's set up your custom search. Okay, so let's assume these are the things we know based on the search. and based on our conversations, we're only looking for houses that are active and coming soon, we don't need to know about ones that are closed or that kind of thing, we're not looking into what things are selling for, we're looking for houses for you to buy, He wants four bedrooms, but we know our minimum is three-bedroom houses. I want you to see everything that is available from three bedrooms within your price point. looking for everything let's say up to 750 000 780 000 frankly so the maximum I'm going to put is 750. the reason for that is we need space to be able to beat the asking price and have some space for you to negotiate frankly I know because I know because I know you're not going to find an Everything you want remotely at the price point you want under 350.
So I'm going to put that at a minimum because you don't need to rank things that are just ridiculous. do that I want to try it let's make a hundred thousand no way you're going to find that I'm not doing it we're going to be a half acre size now if we put in a half acre minimum that's really going to reduce the number of houses we're going to see but let's just say that's what you really want i want to show you the difference so we look at a minimum and usually i don't put a minimum maximum of 750 single family homes and i'm going to say we're in will mount juliet because you want to be in the school district some houses single family homes in lebanon are districted for mount juliet schools so we will keep them there because i want you to see everything that is possible i am not going to put too much stuff.
I know you want an updated kitchen. I know you want a modern kitchen. I know you want a lot of things, but we're going to give you everything you can see and see that there are 32 houses that are either actively on the market or coming soon. I'll do this on a Sunday, that should be all more or less. it's up only two or they're coming soon i guarantee a couple of these weren't available to watch until later this week maybe friday but there's about 32 to watch so what happens next is i'm going to set up with your name this search for you each house will be sent to you as they come on the market so let's imagine you're going to open it it arrives today you open it this house is in hunters point park yes that's in Lebanon the houses of the lowest price will be in Lebanon, they are 379,000 and you can seethe list you'll see the images you'll see all kinds of information about the house as it's being sent to you and you'll be able to scroll through all the images based on seeing these images you can pick up the phone next and that brings us to step number four , so now it's time to get to the really fun stuff let's get in the car because you're going to ride with me like you're riding shotgun you're going to see through the windshield the neighborhoods of houses that you have an interest in so that you can they will text or call me and say hi we would love to see one of the houses sent to you on that search because you will get new houses every day that meet your criteria as it becomes available now you can get here early and can't get in on tuesday but we can do it friday i'll make that appointment i'm going to have to ride shotgun with me through this camera here and drive to the neighborhood.
I'll be able to tell you it was a 20 minute drive from Brentwood to get here, it was a 15 minute drive. from the center of the city i can show you on google map where i start and where the house is you will be with me like you are with me watching the rain if it is raining because my windshield wiper is on let's go but we will be together you will see how it is the traffic you will know what it feels like to drive into that community we are going to drive through that community you are going to walk with me in that house and i am going to count there are six steps to the front door there are 14 steps to that game room you are going to know things there are two steps down here between the living room and the kitchen that's something you might want to keep an eye out for there are a lot of things I'll point out that you might not even think about you can tell me because we're doing this as a facetime you can ask me questions you can say turn around go back how many burners was that was a gas stove or do you get it you get the point we can spend d all the time you want touring that house looking at it step by step you're going to see the neighborhood we're going to walk outside you're going to say hey do you hear traffic noise I'm going out I'm going to let you listen it's as good as being there because here's why you can't get on a plane and get here in all likelihood now, if you live here, great if you're here to visit, fabulous if you come to visit. by the way there is a separate plan to come say monday early in the week maybe monday tuesday wednesday you can learn and drive to communities you may not know if you want to be mount juliet or franklin or thompson Station or Nolansville or Dixon or you get the point, but when you get there a couple days early, even if the houses aren't available to view, I can promise you that the difference you'll see in one area versus another will make you instantly familiar with the instrument, it's well that's not really our place yeah you're right i just think it's too rural or it's too far from sam's club or too close to sam's club or whatever you'll know when you spend time in each community so explore a little, time passes, get an airbnb, get a hotel in the closest place to the community.
I think you're going to want to be inside then spend some time driving around to see the sights but when we get together when we can see those houses we'll go walk the houses together or I'm going to virtually get you in that house you don't have the time and all chance to get on a plane and get here because remember its coming soon mon tues wed probably thursday first visit will be fri saturday sunday deal deadlines sunday afternoon if you dont even know what neighborhood you really like it because you haven't been here yet you will feel so much pressure and you won't even know yeah this is something that would be perfect for me and my family so im going to take you let's walk we are we're going to walk let's walk step by step you're going to visually see everything and you're going to stop and ask me all kinds of questions because you're going to visit that house see it and know enough to be able to do offers probably 80 percent of the houses I've sold last year and already this year, each of them has been seen without being physically seen with their own eyes, but they knew enough about the area, learned enough through our searches, and felt comfortable enough with our tours and the conversation to make offers, then we move on to the next step, my gosh, real estate is so

simple

compared to lighting, how do they do this step five? we're going to write an offer we're going to write that offer with all the nuances that need to go into this is what happens here in tennessee maybe different in your area that's why you need to know when you have a situation like ours where it's still completely a market of sellers now if you are looking at these three years fr om now may be different today feb 2022 and all homes from last year 2021 will be coming on the market soon all offers are due on a particular day and time if you don't make that day and time don't you take it away or don't even look at all, the offers will be presented to the seller at the same time, they can have two, they can have one, they can have 32. they see all the offers at the same time and those offers are everything, not just the price offered, but um is there a loan what is the amount of the loan is it a cash sale so you have to show your um proof of funds pre approval letters when do you want to close when is the date of possession is it going to be c how much earnest money there is fails inspections uh uh passes fails inspection versus when the inspection is going to be done due date and when the resolution has to be made for that inspection every nuance that is important in a contract should be negotiated at this point more than just people are always conf

used

if there are multiple offers on the table, the seller won't counter one offer and hold the rest, they are all seen at the same time, they are all looked at at the same time, one can be accepted and the rest should be rejected, hopefully . they will be nice about it and will thank you very much.
We really appreciate your offer, but we accept another one or one might be countered and everyone else at the same time gets a notification that we have countered an offer, we haven't countered yours. that doesn't mean you can't go in and change your offer give them a better offer and they can withdraw the first one there's a lot I promise you but in general one is accepted and the others are rejected and you know what hasn't happened once in what can you think of it has never happened that my buyer turned down an offer and that was the first and best and by far the best house for them and they have always regretted it every time it turns out that they end up with the house that is the best for them them and for various reasons they always say thank goodness we didn't get that house in Dahlia thank goodness we didn't get that house in Appian because it's so much better because of the backyard or whatever reason so it's heartbreaking for you and me he he represents you, and frankly, after this whole process, I can promise you that we all know each other pretty well. and maybe you did it from beverly hills your offer is accepted so during the inspection period i am not suggesting anyone do wave inspections people are doing that here but i am not suggesting i suggest we do it as a wave inspection failed approval for many houses it just depends on the house it depends on the person but an inspection is like an owner's manual if you come from california where i heard they have rat problems you don't know about radon i found that people who are for In some other areas are not known about termites and some of the things to look for so this is an owner's manual for you on owning a home here in Tennessee and some of our weather situations that are just different from where you are . so getting a basic

homeowners

manual is important and that is what a pass and fail inspection could do for you you have the time period to do the inspection that is specified in the contract we also have a period of time to resolution that is also in that contract, deadlines must be met or you are in breach of your contract, so it's up to me and my team to make sure we keep everything in line like we said we would in our contract. offer, but there's a period of time that the earnest money has to be transferred to a title company or whoever they recommend during that inspection period, so if it's five to seven days, you have time to get on a plane and come to be here for the inspection tour be there a part take action do whatever you want to do during that inspection period while the inspector is there you have several hours if you can't be here that's ok too if you can't be here the inspector will your inspection will take several hours they will hire and then they will send you a full report this is a 30-60 day or 60 page report with all sorts of pictures and explanations and descriptions of what they are looking at each section it discusses the heating and the air conditioning, the foundation, the doors, the door frames, the paint, the roofs and the fascia, all the things of a house.
This is an important owner's manual for you. I do not accept it. I don't think anyone should. skip that but that gives you time to get here physically get here be here for the inspection be here to tour that house if you haven't seen it face to face that's our process it's not too complicated there's just a lot of steps and a lot of time peri but as you can see its really a simple process if you follow the steps and the strategy there you have it now remember to wash repeat the same strategy over and over again your next step call me text susan i am thinking. about coming to tennessee we can talk for 30 minutes tuesday wednesday thats as simple as it is subscribe to this program keep learning more about the different areas of the city and i look forward to talking with you next week you
