Buy or Sell First?



Real Estate Matters with Tim Bro

Buy or Sell First?

The classic dilemma for many homeowners is whether to buy or sell first.  There is no “right” answer.  It depends on your specific circumstances as well as current market conditions.

Most homeowners believe that it’s more prudent and less stressful if you sell your existing home before you buy a new one.  You can often get top dollar for your home if you are not under pressure to sell.  And you’re in a better position to negotiate when buying a home.  If you have to make an offer contingent on the sale of your home, you often lose negotiating leverage.

The risk of selling first is that you’ll be under pressure to buy a new home before closing.  In a competitive real estate market, the period between going under contract and closing may not be a realistic timeframe for you to find your dream home.

Next Question - How Much Can You Afford?



Real Estate Matters with Tim Bro

Next Question – How Much Can You Afford?

You've started your home buying search and are dreaming big – so now you need to take the next steps to make sure you can realize that goal. Now is the time to do your research and find the financing options for a home that will work best for you.

Even if you're in the “just thinking about it” stage, it's a good idea to speak with a few lenders about receiving pre-qualification for a mortgage. When you choose to become pre–qualified, you will provide some basic information about financial situation to a lender over the phone or online.

When you are ready to start looking at homes with me in person, you will want to become pre–approved for a loan and have the lender assess your credit worthiness.

To get started with your home purchase, call Tim Brodowski at 858-354-2354, “The Right Choice in Real Estate.”

Helpful Tips for the Real Estate Investor Part 2 of 2



Real Estate Matters with Tim Bro

Helpful Tips for the Real Estate Investor Part 2 of 2

9.     Personal property – what’s included:
There are many different types of personal property (appliances, furnishings, etc) involved in an investment sale.  Make sure you know which personal property items convey with sale.

10.  Have adequate insurance:
Consult with an insurance agent to make sure you are covered!  Tenants and their guests bring liabilities!

11.  Selecting qualified tenants from the start:
Check references from previous landlords, employers, bankers, and credit agencies.  A little work up front can save a lot of your potential problems in the future.

12.  Treat your tenants as customers:
Vacancies and turnovers are your largest expense!  Charge fair rents and attend to realistic tenant needs immediately.  Yes, immediately!

13.  Not renting right:
Too low rent costs money, but it can reduce turnover and can decrease vacancies.  High rent increases cash flow and the value of the building, but can increase the vacancy factor and turnover.  Understand if there is rent control or if there is proposed rent control.  This could severely inhibit financial performance.

14.  Spending positive cash flow?
Apply your excess cash flow to the payment and speed up that amortization schedule.   And/or keep a “reserves” account for maintenance and unexpected events.

15.  Monitor & visit your property:
Do this yourself if the property is local. If located out of town and you have a property manager, have them visit, take pictures, and offer a write up. Frequently!!!

16.  Future Plans:
As you develop a strong equity position and positive cash flow in your real estate holdings, it may be time to leverage it and buy another.  Another idea would be to sell it in a 1031 Exchange and purchase a move up property.  Or … well, the option and possibilities are limitless.

17.  Exit Strategy:
When it’s time to liquidate properties, understand what options are available.

To discuss and review your current holdings and future real estate goals, call Tim Brodowski at 858-354-2354, “The Right Choice in Real Estate”.
