TRANSACTIONS I CAN HELP YOU WITH
Single Family Residences—A single family residence, owner occupied, requires a unique approach, one that says, home, casa, maison, الصفحة الرئيسية, 家. Having represented many buyers and sellers in these residential transactions, I understand that they require a specific kind of thought, care, attention, and patience. I look forward to walking next to you as you part from one home to another.
HOAs—As a buyer of a condo or townhouse, you are purchasing a piece of a community, a shared development, essentially a stock in a small corporation. As a seller, you are selling the same. Thus, these transactions, which unlike single-family-home transactions, deal with HOA fees, articles of incorporation, CC&R, bylaws, common areas, HOA finances, special assessments, and more, require a unique set of skills.
Residential Income Properties—As a property manager myself, I look forward to guiding you through the sale or purchase of your first, or hundredth, residential income property, whatever it might be.
New Constructions—New construction poses unique considerations. Buyers might want to consider defective construction and warranties, or the ability to negotiate effectively against an experienced developer. Sellers might want to consider having a consultant before and after construction, or the ability to implement an effective marketing plan that will set a favorable precedent for the sale of future units in the same development. I can help with these scenarios and more.
Probates—When the court is involved because a property owner passed away intestate, the resulting real estate transaction can become complicated and stressful for both the buyer and the seller. As your experienced agent, familiar with probate sale requirements and practices, I will work with you to make it as simple and stress-free as possible.
Leases—As your full-service leasing agent, and an experienced landlord, I will not only help you identify a property or a tenant, but also explain and negotiate the lease agreement on your behalf. This includes ensuring the proper disclosures, clauses, and rules are in place to protect you, among other things. (I work with leases of above $5,000 per month.)
Cash Purchases—Cash purchases can require extra care. In a financed transaction, the lender, serving its need, sometimes selfishly so, does its due diligence to ensure its investment, measuring a property against certain minimum standards, and as a byproduct also protecting the buyer. In a cash transaction, anything goes. No one is stopping you from buying an overpriced, termite-infested property with a clouded title. As your Realtor, I will help you set a list of minimum property requirements for your purchase.
1031 Exchanges—A properly executed 1031 exchange allows an investor to sell a property and defer all capital gains tax. For this to happen, he or she has to reinvest the proceeds of the sale into a new property, in adherence to the requirements set by Internal Revenue Code 1031. As your Realtor, I will guide you through the requirements of this transaction.
Short Sales—A short sale is the selling of property for less than the loan amount on the property. In such a transaction, I would negotiate with your bank to come to a settlement outside of the standard foreclosure process, in an attempt to salvage your credit and protect you against any deficiency judgments that could result.
Foreclosures—Foreclosure represents the process in which a homeowner defaults on his or her loan and a lender attempts to recuperate or salvage its investment by selling the homeowner’s property. Having given birth to my real estate career during the 2008 recession, in the height of foreclosures, I am well equipped to represent both buyers and banks in these unique transactions.
Have questions about your next transaction? Ask me. If I don't have complete experience with your specific type of transaction, I will partner up with another expert Realtor who does, getting you two Realtors for the price of one.
Real estate transactions come in all shapes and forms. Each one requires unique expertise and knowledge. An agent familiar with your type of real estate transaction can increase your negotiating weight and reduce your liability, among other benefits. Here are some of the transactions I can help you with.
