Why Buyers Need Us!
Understanding the process.
If you are new to the home buying process, we can explain exactly what to expect during the entire transaction.
There are essential steps to a successful closing. They are:
A fully executed contract with all important facets initialed.
- Buyer applying for the loan timely with the contract deadlines.
- Lender deadlines met according to TRID.
- Buyer purchasing insurance with the binder in place by closing.
- Loan Approval.
- Walk-through and signing off.
- Review of the Closing Disclosure and/or HUD.
- Title company’s involvement and advising of the wiring of funds.
- Handing over of keys, clickers and keys to the clubhouse.
- Registration with the water company as well as other local utilities.
- Registration with the HOA or COA.
Pointing out the “not-so-obvious” features regarding the property.
hether there is a room that was “stated” as a bedroom in the MLS to a spa that was tagged as a swimming pool, he can assess what you are purchasing and create a market analysis based on the truth of what you have seen and are considering to purchase.
“The Ocampos were able to assess quickly whether the MLS printout is in line with the actual product being presented and point out the not so obvious.”
Negotiated better contract terms.
Whether it’s price or closing date, the contract terms can be tricky. From figuring out repairs, move-in dates, pricing, what stays with the property, what should be removed from the property, we can take care of all these details to make for a smoother move.
Providing buyers with “tried and true” service vendors.
Being in the business exposes one to many who lend, inspect, repair and close transactions. That’s when experience really counts. Having been in the business for quite some time, we have brushed up against those who deliver – not just promise.
Improving knowledge of the areas – so a buyer makes an informed decision about where to live, work and play.
Experienced agents such as the Ocampos – especially those who have lived in South Florida – know the areas. Sizing up your wants and needs and where you would most likely be the most fulfilled is the most rewarding part of the job.
O T H E R R E A S O N S —
Knowledge of home values and how to calculate them.
The public thinks that google has all the answers and the aggregators have all the home value algorithms correct. Wrong. Evaluating a home’s value, whether for a buyer or a seller, is a tedious task using all kinds of metrics – not just the MLS system.
- Education as the market.
Professionals, such as us, will educate you as to the REAL market.
Professionals with experience can use third-party testimonials to educate you as to “what happened to the last buyer or seller who did that . . .” to prevent you from making expensive mistakes that could lead to difficulties in resales.
- Problems that Arise.
What happens when the inspection reveals issues that may result in a cancellation of the contract? Can you get your deposit monies back?
We keep up with contract law and the changes thereto. Some agents use an outdated contract which would not hold up in a court of law and could result in a bad result for the client.
- Overcoming objections.
We are extremely likable and trained in handling any objection by any party and have ample resources. Experienced agents have run into the same issues time and time again and knows the probable outcome.
- Effective negotiation skills.
How do we formulate a strategy?
How much should you offer or counteroffer?
Will your response create rejection of your offer?
What about multiple offers? Could you facilitate, manage and negotiate effectively without rise to ethics violations or violating federal housing laws?
We have objectivity when it comes to negotiating the best outcome for her client. The parties are too subjective and may get too emotionally involved in the process.
Objectivity is key to closing.
