I came up with the idea of having a seminar because it seems like our sellers and buyers are learning about the buying and selling process online more and more these days. I, myself, admit to “googling” whenever I come across anything unfamiliar that I want to find more information about; I think something as life changing as “moving your family” deserves a little more personal attention. A good real estate professional wants to know your dreams, hopes and goals for your next home and wants to be able to guide you through this process. Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com just can’t do that! I thought maybe a low key, no obligation setting like a seminar was the way to help. We have so much to offer as professional and experienced real estate brokers. Yes, real estate has changed over the years, but we still hold a NC state license that is held to a very strict standard with the NC Real Estate Commission; legally and ethically. Our profession truly is more than sticking a sign in your yard and unlocking a door!
At our seminar I talk about what it really means to “have an agent” representing you in a real estate transaction, whether it be buying or selling or both. I talk about what we, as Front Porch Realty, look for while marketing a home for sale or helping you pick a home that best meets your needs and wants. I talk about all of the different legal and disclosure obligations of all parties to the transaction and property, and I talk about the importance of pricing as well as marketing your home. I also talk about the Offer to Purchase Contracts and all of their addenda. Contracts are much more than “lots of blanks to be filled in”. There are strategies and negotiation points on every page of the contracts and I believe that is where a lot of our skill and professionalism is proven.
We also invite some trusted contractors and inspectors that we have used over the years to come say a few words; as sellers and buyers the chance of needing a contractor is very likely as you prepare your home for the market and/or work on improvements for your new home.
