  TIPS WHEN BUYING WHILE SELLING

 

Tip 1.  Sell Before You Buy

 

Put your house on the market first, and have a contract on the home prior to signing a contract to purchase a new home.  This is safer than buying prior to selling your current home.  If you buy first, there is a strong possibility you will have 2 mortgage payments for a period of time.  Prior and while your current home is on the market, look for a new home and become familiar with other neighborhoods.  Goal here is to have 1-3 homes that you would be willing to purchase contingent on your current home closing.  Another goal is to make 1 move; moving from your current home to your new home.  There are several techniques available  that can make this feasible, but not always possible.  Most buyers prefer being pressed to look for a house than selling a house.  If you desperately need to sell your home, you probably will lower the price, and make other concessions.  You may lose thousands of dollars if you allow yourself into this situation.  Worst case scenario, you probably would be renting for 1 or 2 months.   

  

Tip 2.  Professional Continuity 

 

Using the same real estate professionals will tend to work to your advantage.  This will create greater continuity, understanding of your needs, more knowledgeable of the situation and make the process run more smoothly.  

 

Tip 3.  Contract Contingencies

 

When you create a contract to buy a home, include a contingency that is based on the sale of your current home.  This will prevent you from having 2 mortgage payments.  The seller will look at this offer as being less favorable if you do not have a solid contract on your current home.  If you have a solid contract on your current home, the seller will probably look at your offer favorably providing all other terms are acceptable.

 

Tip 4.  Timing 

 

Timing is probably the most important element for the above process, but the most difficult to control.  Your realtor should check into the feasibility of a single move.  Remember, there are techniques your realtor can employ to make a single move feasible when doing duel transactions.

 

Tip 5.  Closing

 

Schedule the sale of home first because you will need the funds from the sale of old home to purchase your new home.  There is a strong possible both closings will not be done with the same title company.  If all parties would agree to one title company this would tend to make the closing of both transactions work more smoothly.  Remember in real estate transactions, the signing of closing papers does no mean ownership has transferred.  Ownership normally transfers when the transaction has been funded.

IMFORMATION ABOUT BROKERAGE SERVICES

 

� EOUAlltOUS8'C Of>PORTUNIIY


Information About Brokerage Services

Texas law requires all real estate license holders to give the following information about

brokerage services to prospective buyers, tenants, sellers and landlords.


11-2-2015


 

TYPES OF REAL ESTATE LICENSE HOLDERS:

A BROKER is responsible for all brokerage activities, including acts performed by sales agents sponsored by the broker.

A SALES AGENT must be sponsored by a broker and works with clients on behalf of the broker.

A BROKER'S MINIMUM DUTIES REQUIRED BY LAW (A client is the person or party that the broker represents):

Put the interests of the client above all others, including the broker's own interests;

Inform the client of any material information about the property or transaction received by the broker;

Answer the client's questions and present any offer to or counter-offer from the client; and

Treat all parties to a real estate transaction honestly and fairly.

A LICENSE HOLDER CAN REPRESENT A PARTY IN A REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION:

AS AGENT FOR OWNER (SELLER/LANDLORD): The broker becomes the property owner's agent through an agreement with the owner, usually in a written listing to sell or property management agreement. An owner's agent must perform the broker's minimum duties above and must inform the owner of any material information about the property or transaction known by the agent, including information disclosed to the agent or subagent by the buyer or buyer's agent.

AS AGENT FOR BUYER/TENANT: The broker becomes the buyer/tenant's agent by agreeing to represent the buyer, usually through a written representation agreement. A buyer's agent must perform the broker's minimum duties above and must inform the buyer of any material information about the property or transaction known by the agent, including information disclosed to the agent by the seller or seller's agent.

AS AGENT FOR BOTH - INTERMEDIARY: To act as an intermediary between the parties the broker must first obtain the written agreement of each party to the transaction. The written agreement must state who will pay the broker and, in conspicuous bold or underlined print, set forth the broker's obligations as an intermediary. A broker who acts as an intermediary:

Must treat all parties to the transaction impartially and fairly;

May, with the parties' written consent, appoint a different license holder associated with the broker to each party (owner and

buyer) to communicate with, provide opinions and advice to, and carry out the instructions of each party to the transaction. Must not, unless specifically authorized in writing to do so by the party, disclose:

o that the owner will accept a price less than the written asking price;

o that the buyer/tenant will pay a price greater than the price submitted in a written offer; and

o any confidential information or any other information that a party specifically instructs the broker in writing not to

disclose, unless required to do so by law.

AS SUBAGENT: A license holder acts as a subagent when aiding a buyer in a transaction without an agreement to represent the buyer. A subagent can assist the buyer but does not represent the buyer and must place the interests of the owner first.

TO AVOID DISPUTES, ALL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN YOU AND A BROKER SHOULD BE IN WRITING AND CLEARLY ESTABLISH:

The broker's duties and responsibilities to you, and your obligations under the representation agreement.

Who will pay the broker for services provided to you, when payment will be made and how the payment will be calculated.

LICENSE HOLDER CONTACT INFORMATION: This notice is being provided for information purposes. It does not create an obligation for you to use the broker's services. Please acknowledge receipt of this notice below and retain a copy for your records.
