Her agent had sent links to 3 home tours that he had ready – sounds great, however not one of the tours told something concerning the special features of their property – or the advantages of these special features. On prime of that, the listings stated that she had a pasture and a barn. She said she needed she’d known that each one these years – she’d have bought a horse!
The moral of the story is that, just like a business proprietor who sells items, you have to take on the mindset of a customer. Think like a home buyer in this instance.
Owners do not sell their multi-unit properties for no reason at all. It is always a critical step to review every detail of the listing before making an offer to buy it. My first suggestion to an investor is to form a strong relationship with one Realtor and make him understand what your goals are with your investments. Ask him to find out exactly why the owner is trying to sell the property. The reasons will be wide spread for the sale, but it is important to make sure that you are not about to invest in a major disaster.
Read up on the countries that interest you to get an idea of what to expect, whether that be banking, schools, grocery markets, culture, weather, native language, etc. It never hurts to educate yourself before you relocate to Europe.
Invite realtors in your area to provide views about its condition and pricing to be competitive in the market. You should look at your house more like a home buyer, instead of looking at it like a seller. Highlight all amenities – location, size and other factors that make it more appealing than other similar houses. If you were looking to buy a house in this area, would you buy it at the price with the amenities it has?
Real estate investors can buy your house even if it needs repairs, and sometimes even if your mortgage balance is too high to allow you to sell at a low price or traditional home buyers.
Buying a property could provide stability for your future and give great advantages. After paying off your mortgage, you will not be paying a rent payment anymore. Build equity over time and you own more of your property.
