For My Buyers

I have no problem offering 20% below asking price for my Arizona home buyers.  If you want the best price available for your property here in Arizona, we need to be aggressive when submitting offers to purchase.  Every single day I see other Realtors offer 3% to 5% below asking price for their buyers.  Simply stated, I don't believe that method represents your best interests.  With firm negotiations and my experience you will get the very best price available when buying property here in Arizona.  Please believe me when I say, the difference between an under qualified Realtor and an experienced Realtor may literally cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars when purchasing a home, even millions, depending on your price range of course.  I have lived in Arizona all of my life, my knowledge and understanding of Arizona is most certainly to your benefit.

For 20 years I have been helping people buy and sell luxury homes in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Fountain Hills, Arcadia, Carefree, Ahwatukee, Mesa, Chandler, Goodyear, Gilbert, Cave Creek, Peoria, Higley, Queen Creek, Gold Canyon, Avondale, Buckeye, Surprise, Glendale, Tolleson, Maricopa, Florence, Eloy, Coolidge, Casa Grande, Apache Junction, Sun City, Sun City West, and Anthem.  My only priority is representing your best interests and getting you the very best price with firm negotiations when buying a home in here in Arizona.
  

For My Sellers

When selling your home, Realty One Group's superior marketing campaigns accompanied with aggressive negotiation tactics will get you the highest and best price possible for your home.  The luxury home buyers are coming from Canada, China, The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, and other foreign markets.  Many buyers are also coming from colder states within the United States.  It is imperative that we concentrate most of our marketing campaigns for your home in these markets.  Knowing where the buyers are coming from is 80% of the battle.  I do not know any other firm in Arizona that markets your home as well as Realty One Group does in foreign markets.  Realty One Group will sell your home at the absolute highest price available because more targeted buyers know about your home for sale.  I challenge you to ask any other Real Estate Agent, "What exactly do you do to market my home in foreign markets where the buyers are coming from?" After you hear their answer, I think we will be in touch shortly.  Every day I see luxury homes that have been on the market for 300 days or more.  If you want your property sold, the two main ingredients are effective target marketing campaigns, and pricing your home correctly.  If you are serious about getting your property sold, and you want it done in a high class fashion that gets proven results, Nicholas McConnell with Realty One Group is your answer.

When purchasing a home, your first step is to get pre-qualified for a loan. To get pre-qualified for a loan you need to speak with a lender. If you already have a lender, great! If not, then your Realtor should be able to recommend one to you. Your lender is going to ask you a series of questions. How much money are you putting down? How much money do you make a year? How much debt do you have? What your lender is trying to find out is how much you can afford towards a monthly mortgage payment. They are going to ask you for pay check stubs, bank statements, and possibly other documentation depending on your situation. After you are pre-qualified for a loan you will know how much money you are putting down if any, how much your payments are going to be, and what type of loan program you are going to be in. There are several to chose from so it is important that you communicate with your lender about your financial needs. Do not pick the first lender you meet. Shop your lenders because each lender has different programs, different rates, and different company policies. This alone can save you thousands of dollars.

After you are pre-qualified for your loan, it is now time to start shopping for the home of your dreams. You need to tell your Realtor what is important to you. Do you want a pool? Is square footage important? How many bedrooms and bathrooms are you looking for? Is school district important? Is the city you live in important? How far from work are you going to want to be? After you have told your Realtor exactly what you are looking for, a search will be conducted on your behalf to find the home you are looking for. Once you see the results of the search, your Realtor will drive you around to all the homes you want to view in person.

Finally, you found the home of your dreams. It is now time to write an offer to the seller with your Realtor. Your Realtor will quarter back the entire process for you. Once you write the offer, the Realtor will deliver it to the selling agent. The selling agent will review the offer with the seller. They will either accept the offer, reject the offer, or counter offer. After the seller and the buyer have come to an agreement and all the contracts have been signed by both parties, escrow is now opened.

The length of the contract will be decided by the buyer and the seller in the initial offer. A standard contract lasts about thirty days, but some contracts last up to ninety days depending on the needs of the buyer and seller. The very first thing that happens after escrow is opened is the inspection period for the buyer. The buyer is allotted a certain amount of time to conduct a thorough inspection of the property. It is a very good idea to hire a professional inspector when buying a home. Your Realtor should be able to recommend a good home inspector to you. Your inspector will check the plumbing, the electric, the roof, the overall quality of the property, and then hand you a report.

After the buyer obtains the home inspection report, the buyer will ask the seller to fix certain items that were found in unacceptable condition. The buying Realtor will deliver this list of items to the selling Realtor for the seller to review. It is another little contract within the main contract. The seller and the buyer need to come up with another agreement on what is to be fixed and what is not to be fixed. If they cannot come up with an agreement the buyer has the right to back out of the contract unless that right was waived for some particular reason.

The buyer and the seller have now agreed on what is to be fixed and what is not to be fixed. During escrow, the seller will be fixing the items that the buyer wanted, and will also be packing up to move. The buyer will be packing their home to move in to the home they are buying, and making sure that their lender has all the documentation they need to fund the loan. Make sure that you communicate with your lender, there is nothing worse than having to pull up six months’ worth of bank statements the day before you are moving in to your new home. In order for the loan to go through the lender needs certain documentation that will be communicated to the buyer frequently.
The loan has funded now. The buyer and the seller will now have to sign the closing documents at the title company. The lender will deliver the funds to the title company for the buyer, and from those funds the seller will get the proceeds from their sale. The title company will then transfer the deed of the home from the seller to the buyer through the county recorders office. After this step is complete, the buyer legally owns this property and can start moving in.

It is of paramount importance to use an educated, aggressive, and experienced Realtor when dealing millions of dollars. A bad Realtor could cost you literally tens of thousands of dollars. You need your Realtor to negotiate the price for you, and negotiate the terms of the contract for you so that your best interests are represented. If you find a home for two million dollars, the seller may accept two hundred thousand dollars less than the asking price. You never offer the list price, offer way below as a starting point. During the inspection period, you want your Realtor to get everything they can out of the seller. You do not want to be making repairs on your move in day.

Do your homework when selecting your Realtor. Ask questions. Does my realtor have an education? Does my Realtor know the area? Does my Realtor have experience? Does my Realtor have credentials? You do not want a high school dropout representing you when making the biggest investment of your life. Click the link below to get in touch with a fantastic Realtor in Paradise Valley, Arizona.
