          Selling Your Home in Nutley NJ, What To Ask Agents Before Your Hire Them.

          Are you thinking about selling your home in Nutley NJ and you are interviewing Realtors. Here is what to ask.

          #1 Are You A Franchise Company or Part of a Larger Firm, Just because the office looks impressive does not mean the agents are.

          #2 What is your Marketing Plan for my home? do you have it in print, don’t just give me lip service about who you know in town, sometimes an agents reputation is more important than all the marketing they may do. Ask around about your agent before you sign that listing agreement.

          #3 Will you do an open house at least 2-3 times per month? Where do you advertise my Open House? Will you put it online and inthe Newspaper?

          #4 Once I sign the Listing agreement are you just going to hand me off to one of your assistants? Some agents use assistants like gophers and just wind up handing your most valuable asset off to an under qualified assistant or other agent and you never hear from that agent again until it’s time to re-list. Insist on a call every week for a status update, usually Monday mornings are the best time to schedule these calls.

          #5 Find out how much traffic your home get’s on the weekends (if the property is vacant) also have a lock box installed, does not matter if its a rental or sale, every listing should be treated equal.

          #6 Ask about the commission your paying, are they giving and equal share to participating brokers? this can out you at a disadvantage if they are not.

          #7 Do you offer a home warranty like Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage does?

          #8 What if I want to break my listing agreement with my firm, can I do that?

          I hope these 8 questions help you flush out which Real Estate firm you decide to list your home with in Nutley, please contact me if you have any questions.

            Keeping Your Fixer-Upper Cash Flow Under Control

            Keeping Your Fixer-Upper Cash Flow Under Control

            While there are some real estate investors that pursue fixer-upper properties because they like the challenge, most are in it for one thing: the money. Getting the most out of your particular piece of real estate should be your only goal and should govern your actions well before signing on the dotted line or hammering down the first nail.

            There are two distinct stages where over-spending can ruin your chances of getting a profit out of your fixer-upper property and keeping a watchful eye on your own pocketbook during those two critical times will make all the difference between real estate flop and real estate profit. While the real estate transaction process will always have a lot of twists and turns, navigating properly through these two key times will help you out immensely and give you a positive real estate investing experience.

            Make Your Purchase Price Make Sense
            Though there will be many parts of the real estate transaction you can use to improve your end profit, no time is more important than the purchase of your investment property. Doing the proper math on a particular property before ever even entertaining the prospect of purchasing it will lay out your potential profit and the sale price you need to achieve that level of success.

            Many real estate investors tend to forget about extra fees that eat away at a profit margin like closing costs on both the purchase and sale of the home, real estate agent commission fees and taxes that may need to be paid while you are in ownership of the property. All of these little costs add up to a big chunk of the potential selling price of your home and we have not even discussed the amount of money you’re going to put into the home through renovations.

            The best way to determine your maximum purchase price is to work backwards from the amount of money you hope to get out of the home, subtracting out every cost you can think of, including your renovation expenses, to arrive at a purchase price for the property that makes the most sense for your investment plan. No one ever said real estate investing was easy, so prepare to make extensive plans if you want to pursue only the best opportunities.

            Do Not Overdo Your Renovation
            There is a great temptation amongst real estate investors, especially those new to the practice, to pour money into every aspect of a home to give it a completely new feeling and décor. While those types of thing that are nice, overspending on your renovation costs will eat away at your potential profit.

            You must quickly decide what improvements will add real value to the home and which will only have the chance to add value for a particular interested buyer. Concentrate on those things that appeal to all prospective home buyers. Bathrooms and bedrooms will always make a statement to a buyer but an asphalt driveway may not.

            Further, you have to keep in mind that no renovation will ever go perfectly so building some cushion into your profit plan for unexpected minor increases in various parts of your project is a smart real estate investing practice. If costs escalate slightly, you will be able to absorb that cost and still hit your profit point. If they don’t, you have that much more breathing room when it comes to selling the real estate.

            By keeping a firm grasp on the money out of your pocket and into your fixer-upper, you can better control the profit you’ll see as you go to sell off your investment. By not overpaying and by making sure you don’t over-renovate the home, you can ensure yourself a smoother, more fulfilling and more profitable real estate investing experience.

                Are You A New Real Estate Agent in Nutley in the Process of Choosing A Broker?

                Are you a new Real Estate agent in Nutley NJ?Well here is my opinion on picking an agency to hang your license at, here are a couple of questions that I would ask your potential Broker and don’t think its all about the split, there is allot more to the business than just the split like the following couple of questions you should be asking:

                1) As the Broker/Manager do you compete for listings with your agents?
                2) What is your training process, do you have one? if so do you have it in writing?
                3) Do you rotate floor time rather than have the same agent on the same days all the time?
                4) What is your marketing strategy and how will you highlight me and help me build my business?
                5) Are you a franchise and if so what type of marketing support do you get?
                6) Can I brand myself on all my marketing material, mailers & signs?
                7) What is the office policy on leads, do you have that in writing?
                8) Do you suppliment my marketing efforts, do you share costs for mailings, ads etc.

                Also I would ask around town and see what your potential brokers reputation is, will it hurt you if they have a bad reputation, will it hurt your business? these are very important questions to get you started off on the right path of real estate success.

                  Where To Put Your Money

                  Where To Put Your Money

                  As in many aspects of life, the key to real estate investing can be location, location, location. While real estate is perhaps more complicated than hoping for foot traffic at a restaurant with a prime location, location does certainly play a part in the possible viability of a rental property. There are a few things you can look for in the area of your possible real estate investment that can tell you some important things about the possible long-term health of your potential investment.

                  Check For Growth

                  Is the area you’re looking at experiencing strong population and job growth? These are two important economic indicators that can help you decide whether a particular area is ripe for real estate investment opportunities. Local government web sites and federal reports are readily available with population and job growth information.

                  While the benefits of an increased local population are obvious, job growth that exceeds that population growth level can indicate a prospering community with money to spend. Areas that prosper are potential candidates for increased rent payments over time, one sure way to put you on the road to profitability with your real estate investment.

                  With job growth comes quality of life and as qualify of life improves in the area of your investment, so too grows the level of rent you can charge. It is a tried and true fact that people will pay more to live in an area they enjoy, so the prospect of an area growing more and more attractive will directly influence the financial state of your potential real estate investment.

                  The Real Estate Market

                  What is the construction atmosphere of the area like? Areas that are seeing a boom in new home construction often experience those booms because of favorable job growth, income growth and other factors. However, for an area where building permits are outpacing new population, that could be an early indicator of an over supply of real estate that could lead to depressed prices for rent payments.

                  The best case scenario is an area where few homes are for sale, pumping up demand, and where new home construction is strong but not out of control. That can be a fine line, but because any investment takes a great amount of homework and research, it is something that should be investigated over the course of your decision-making process on a new investment.

                  The Land Crunch

                  Just as a low supply of homes on the market can produce an upwards trend for housing prices and, subsequently, the level of rent you can charge, so too can a low level of land available to build on. In an area where population is growing and jobs are strong, all of these new people have to go somewhere.

                  Whenever more people want to move into an area than there are homes for those people to live in, you will see an upward slope for home prices and viable rent payments. If there is little land left to build on, those buildings that are already built will be able to charge more for their rent payments, putting your investment further towards profitability and the long-term benefit of owning property in an attractive part of town.

                  All of this initial information will not guarantee a profit on a rental property, but these are crucial steps to take when evaluating whether you want to put your hard-earned money into a real estate property that is sure to experience the ups and downs of the local economy. Especially for properties outside of your own home area, knowing the state of both the growth of the population and the home construction industry will help you more accurately predict the future viability of your investment.
