Death of Traditional Real Estate Agent (part 1)

by qinfokusuma 13. April 2015 16:49

When I first got into real estate, I looked around at what everyone else was doing, and copied them. Like all the other agents, I handled every aspect of my clients' home sale. Not only was I responsible for the important jobs of marketing and finding buyers, but I was also the guy who ran around getting keys cut, banging in signs, photocopying feature sheets, answering the phones, etc. etc. This is the way most agents still operate today.

Although I'm pretty good at multi-tasking, it soon became clear to me that I wasn't really helping my clients by being engaged in this $8/hour work. While all the 'little stuff' was necessary, it was also extremely time-consuming.

It was around this time that I came across a survey that revealed that 70% of today's buyer and sellers would not go back to their previous agent because they were frustrated with the poor service they had received. No wonder! The traditional way of doing things just didn't make sense. I was spending 90% of my time doing the things that had only 10% importance to my clients - which left me only 10% of my time to spend on the big stuff: the high impact activities such as marketing and locating buyers for my seller's homes.

Not surprisingly, I found that my clients couldn't care less who got the keys cut or did the photocopying. After all, they were hiring me to get them the best result: the highest price in the shortest time. I realized I needed to find a way to spend the majority of my time on the important stuff.

In looking to other industries for guidance, I realized that other professionals (such as doctors and lawyers) don't work alone. They delegate the small administrative details to a support staff - and that's exactly what I've done with my Team.

I have a fantastic administrative staff who take care of the necessary small details, and a dedicated Customer Service Manager who provides my clients with regular and thorough updates on showings and feedback of their home.

Other agents may tell you that my system will somehow give you less service... I've heard some area agents say that 'when you list with Rudy, you don't really get Rudy. Instead, you will deal with one of his assistants' -- as if somehow I'm not involved in the process. This is a gross misunderstanding of how my system works.

In reality, I'm totally involved in the most important parts of the process: i.e. the overall marketing of your home to find the right buyer - to ensure you get the best results: a fast sale and top dollar for your home.

You see, my team members work with me (not instead of me) to get your home sold. We market aggressively to find buyers for your home and are currently working with a large database of qualified area buyers. Together with my hand-picked, Award Winning Team of agents, I ensure that your home receives maximum exposure.

Bottom line, my unique real estate system allows me to give you very personal and attentive service. After all, who do you think can give you better service: one agent trying to do everything themselves, or my entire Team working together to get your home sold.

So if results matter to you -- if selling your home for the most amount of money in the least amount of time is important to you in the sale of your home -- you owe it to yourself to hear directly from me (not from my competitors) how my Team and I can help you achieve that goal.

For specific information about how I can help you achieve the best results, call me personally at my cell phone 626-780-2221.

Home Prices Spring Forward

by qinfokusuma 25. March 2015 10:13

 

This year, your clocks aren’t the only thing springing forward; home prices have increased by leaps and bounds over the last few years!

The last seven to eight years were a chaotic time for the housing market. When the housing market crashed in 2007 and 2008, homeowners nationwide saw the value of their homes plummet overnight. Across the country, millions suddenly found themselves underwater on their mortgages and under the threat of foreclosure.

Others who planned to sell their homes found themselves with few options, just waiting for the market to recover.

However, from late 2011 to today, the housing market made an astounding recovery. The national average home price rose by 20 percent from the first quarter of 2012 to the end of 2014, restoring equity to many of those homeowners who were hit hardest by the crash.

With the home prices so significantly recovered, this year it’s more important than ever to reassess your situation and know where you stand. No matter what the housing market has brought you in recent years, chances are, your home is worth much more than you think! Let’s take a look at why home prices are up, where they are going, and what it all means for you:

Today, There Are Fewer Distressed Sellers

When the housing market first crashed, many homeowners were hit with both the recession and falling home prices. With economic conditions only worsening, homeowners could no longer afford their mortgages. Facing foreclosure, they were forced to try and sell, only to find the owed more on their mortgages than their home was currently worth.

These homeowners, called distressed homeowners, ranked in the millions during the worst of the recession and housing market crisis. With so many homes lost to foreclosure or sold in a short sale for significantly reduced prices, home prices nationwide were kept low.

As the housing market and economy started to recover, the number of distressed sellers shrunk significantly. Large scale real estate investors helped as well, purchasing large quantities of distressed properties and removing them from the market. At the end of last year, distressed sales, or foreclosures and short sales, composed just 9 percent of all sales, down from 14 percent in 2013 and exponentially less than at the peak of the housing crisis1. With fewer cut-rate homes on the market, home prices began ticking up.

Home Prices Have Increased, Unlocking Pent Up Supply and Demand

In 2012, the U.S. economy started to improve, and the housing market began to recover along with it. The following year, the housing market recovered at an astounding pace. Home prices nationwide skyrocketed. According to the National Association of Realtors, the national average home price increased 11.5 percent over 2013 compared to 2012, the strongest yearly gain in home prices since 2005.

Last year, home prices continued to increase, though more slowly. The various home price trackers noted increases between 5 and 7 percent3. This year, home prices continue to march upwards, though at a much steadier pace.

For homeowners, this dramatic increase in prices is helping restore the equity they lost during the housing market crisis. As homeowners regain equity, those who have put off selling their homes are beginning to reenter the market, and the growing demand for housing continues to help drive home prices up.

Inventory Has Been Low, Creating Competition for Available Homes

With more homeowners finally in a position to buy or sell, demand for new homes finally started to increase. However, there were not enough home to meet the rising demand. New home construction practically came to a stand still during the worst of the housing crash. What’s more, many homeowners, unaware of how much the market has improved, have been slow to sell their homes, further limiting supply.

Because there often were not enough homes for sale to meet the growing number homebuyers, buyers were forced to bid higher and higher for the few available properties, pushing home prices up and up!

Today, new home construction is picking up, and as already mentioned, ever more homeowners are finally finding themselves able to sell. Yet demand still out paces inventory slightly, and sellers are still in an advantageous position when selling their homes. If you’ve been thinking of selling your home, now may be the perfect time!

What Does This Mean To Me?

Put simply, your home is probably worth much more than you think. And with home price growth slowing and the market slowly balancing, there may not be a better time to sell your home!

Not only do market conditions still favor sellers, mortgage rates remain at near record lows, giving you more buying power. However, Mortgage rates are rising too as the Fed eases their stimulus and the economy continues to improve. So chances are you can afford more home today than you will be able to later in the year!
