John Hayes Folsom, CA Real Estate

El Dorado Hills CA – This MLS Mistake could cause the right buyer to never look at your home in the first place. The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is the first place an agent representing a buyer is going to look for homes for sale. (The Multiple Listing Service, which I will call MLS for short, is the database of homes for sale that all realtors in a certain area share. When an agent has a buyer and their own homes for...

John Hayes Folsom, CA Real Estate

Folsom-El Dorado Hills CA – What is your final goal? You want to sell your property quickly for top dollar, right? Keep that goal in mind during the entire negotiation. I have seen people kill a potential sale to a person that would have been willing to pay top dollar for a property because they didn't like the person.

It also means they are probably willing to pay more for your property. Take the time to talk to your realtor. You need to take a little time...

John Hayes Folsom, CA Real Estate

El Dorado Hills CA – This is the worst sin of negotiating. Don't tell the buyer's or their agent your life's story. What do you think would pop into a buyer's head if they heard this out of a seller's mouth? "We must sell the home because it is in foreclosure and if we don't sell it be June 23rd, then the bank will foreclose on it." Immediately they will think, "I wonder what they owe on the house. If it doesn't...

John Hayes Folsom, CA Real Estate

El Dorado Hills CA – In our last post, we agreed that the first step in fixing the flawed short sale process is to acknowledge what the problem is.

The next step is measuring the damage and finding ways to fix it. Here is how we...
