If you’re planning on selling your home and buying another, it’s a good idea to list your current home before you make an offer on another property. Then, when you sell your home, you have a couple of options. You could rent living accommodations until you find the home you want to buy. Or, if you have family or friends you could stay with over the short term, you could become more aggressive in your search for a new home. Whatever approach you take, it’s almost always best to list before you buy.

Why Should I Sell First and Buy Later?

It only makes sense. Very few people can afford to carry two mortgages at the same time. Even if you’re fortunate enough to be able to do it, it’s still a bad idea. What happens if there’s a slump in the market? You

The Mike Brown Group: Boise Short Sales

Homeowners all across the country find themselves in the uncomfortable situation of slowly losing the grip on their home. This is no different for residents of Boise, Idaho. But there is an answer. Boise short sales offer a chance for homeowners to walk away without suffering the paralyzing effects of foreclosure.

Simply put, a short sale means that a bank is willing to accept a payoff that is short of what is owed on the loan. By labeling a home as a short sale, they are advertising their intention to the public. This draws in a much larger crowd of potential buyers and gives the bank a much greater chance of selling it sooner.

Why would a bank make such an offer? Because in the end, it saves them money. Foreclosures cost banks an obscene amount of

The Advantages of Having an Agent: The Mike Brown Group REALTORS®

Selling a home involves a careful blend of specialty areas, some of which include marketing, follow-up, market information and negotiating skills. Even with so much importance riding on the sale, many Americans still make the decision to try to sell their home themselves. Thats why its important to know the benefits that are derived from using a selling agent.

When sellers are asked why they would take on such a monumental task, the most common answer is always to save on the commission. But when you break down a deal, the truth is that there really isn’t any money being saved. In fact, sellers typically end up actually losing money- sometimes considerable amounts of it.

Take a look at marketing. A selling agent contracts to show your property and

The Mike Brown Group: How to Handle an Expired Boise Home Listing

Selling a home can create some tense situations. But nothing is more stressful than a home that has been on the market and not sold. Unfortunately, when potential buyers continue to see your home on the market week after week, their first impression is that something must be wrong with it. In reality, if a home is marketed properly, in good condition and priced right, there is no reason why it shouldn’t sell.

So, the questions is: how do you properly market a home, what do you classify as “good condition”, and what is the “right price”? The reality is when a home has been sitting the seller and/or agent does not know the real answers to each of these questions.

Marketing: There are many different ways to market a home. But you can’t go with cheap

Pricing Short Sale Homes: Boise REALTORS® The Mike Brown Group

Short sales offer buyers an excellent opportunity to snag a nice home at a great price. The problem is that any other potential buyer looking at homes in your price range has the same idea. So what do you do? To avoid losing the home of your dreams, the most important thing that you should undoubtedly ask yourself is: “what price should I offer on a short sale home”?

A short sale occurs when a homeowner notifies the bank that they can no longer afford their home. Instead of immediately foreclosing, the bank agrees to take less, or “short” of what is owed on the loan as payoff. While this can produce great deals for buyers, the competition is fierce. So pricing is everything.

In order to find the right price, you will want to employ the services of a
