Are you a real estate agent that wants to learn from the best on how to use social media properly? Maybe you are just in the social media industry yourself and like real estate. Wouldn't it be great to have a list of folks who are respected by their peers in the industry?


Without a doubt there are lots of real estate agents who have no idea what they are doing when it comes to using social media properly. This is not the case with the vast majority of industry leaders you will find in @Paul Sian list of industry experts.


Most of the individuals in Paul's list are not just in one social media channel but in all of the major sites such as Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, Linkedin and Facebook.


Most of these folks have a blog that is the foundation of their business as well. If you want to learn from the best this would be a great place to start.

How Do Guaranteed Home Sale Programs Work

How Do Guaranteed Home Sale Programs Work | Real Estate | Scoop.it
Guaranteed home sale programs are gimmicks that are designed to make the phone ring for a real estate agent. There are better ways to choose a Realtor!

Via Bill Gassett

Bill Gassett's curator insight, August 31, 2015 4:19 PM

In the past have you ever been thinking about selling your home and run across an advertisement that says something to the effect that if the real estate agent does not sell your home they will buy it?


If you are like most people you probably have seen this gimmick and wondered what the heck it is all about. You are not alone as there are many people that get fooled by one of the greatest real estate gimmicks out there.


The guaranteed home sale program is essentially a form of pandering. The agent running the program puts something enticing together like "if I don't sell your home in 43 days I will buy it from you guaranteed".


If you are desperate to sell your home then maybe this isn't such a bad offer. The goal of most real estate agents however is to get their phone to ring. It is human nature to want to believe something that sounds to good to be true.


We all know it rarely ever is and that is exactly the case with the guaranteed sold in X number of days system.


Why? The real estate agent is not going to purchase your home for market value but for a price that is ridiculously under the value. From a Realtor's perspective if you can find enough gullible people out there you can capture some pretty decent business.


So you must be thinking how do so many people fall for this. They actually don't fall for it in the end. What happens is the agent uses good sales tactics to get them to sign a normal listing agreement.


The agent will typically convince the seller how wonderful they are. In fact you will probably hear them bragging about sales stats, home many sold, they are number one. You know all the blah, blah.


Folks there are usually better options out there than falling for the sold in X number of days bull crap. Make sure you make informed decisions and hire the best local Realtor you can find.


In the article you will see a comprehensive explanation of the guaranteed sales pitch.


Gordon S Sloan's curator insight, September 9, 2015 11:34 AM

I have wanted to write an article like this for years now. I don't know if the reasons i didn't were laziness, cowardice, or just not being sure of my facts..... Probably a little of each.


Fortunately Bill Gassett doesn't have any of these problems and added some great insight about a technique that I think hurts our industry, and adds to the suspicion that home buyers and sellers have towards real estate in general, and agents overall.


If you are thinking of listing your Salt Lake home this is a must read.


In his article,  Bill acknowledges that "guaranteed home sales programs" are a gimmick. Later he characterizes the programs as "bait and switch tactics". They are designed to get the phone to ring and to schedule listing appointments.


The dialogue used to convert the phone call to a listing appointment will probably stretch the boundaries of ethics as well. I'll bet nowhere in the introductory call is it mentioned that the home will be purchased for a deeply discounted price with even some strings on that You'll get that information after you hear the rest of the pitch.


So now you are warned about the "guaranteed home sales program". The rest is up to you.


Thanks Bill.

Real Estate Appraisal: What Appraisers Look At

Bill Gassett's curator insight, August 4, 2014 3:16 PM

One of the important phases of a real estate transaction is the real estate appraisal. The lender who is providing the buyer a mortgage will send out an appraiser to your home in order to make sure they amount of money they are lending corresponds with the market value of the property.


An independent appraiser will be assigned to visit your home and report back to the bank what the value of the home happens to be.


The value of your home needs to be there otherwise the transaction more than likely will not proceed. This makes it important for you to understand what the appraiser is looking for and make your property look it's best. If you are in the unfortunate position of your home not appraising you will want to know how to challenge a low real estate appraisal. If you don't feel the appraiser is accurate in the assessment of your properties value there are steps you can take to hopefully resolve this situation. Take a look and if you think the article is a good one please consider sharing it!

The rules of real estate are really not that hard to follow. Do what you are supposed to and more often than not you will have a stress free real estate experience.


If however you decide not to follow good advice from the pro's it is very easy to get caught with your pants down. This can lead to all sorts of problems that can make your experience a poor one.


The article outlines some simple steps you want to follow when you are purchasing real estate including making sure you get pre-approved for a mortgage. You are bound to hear two terms when looking for a loan.


One  mortgage term will be pre-qualified and the other pre-approved. You don't want to waster your time with a pre-qual letter as it doesn't mean anything more than you have the income to buy a home in a certain price point. Always go for a pre-approval to ensure the seller will feel comfortable with your finances.


Another key step in the home buying process is hooking up with a true real estate professional. There are thousands of Realtors to choose from but much like any other industry they all have different skill sets. Look for someone has has a few years under their belt, knows the general area, has good communication skills and sells at least a decent amount of homes.

Marianne Lalonde's curator insight, February 21, 2014 7:14 AM

This article outlines simple steps to follow when purchasing real estate, including making sure you get pre-approved for a mortgage.

It’s important to know that there’s a difference between being pre-qualified and being pre-approved.


The pre-qualified letter really only means that you have the income to support buying a house in a certain price range. Pre-approval, on the other hand, means you have a lender who has means a lender has vetted your credit and financials and is far willing to proceed with underwriting your mortgage once you find a property.


It’s also important to hook up with a true real estate professional.

Look for someone has has good communication skills and sells at least a decent amount of homes.


Be wary of the ‘listing professional’. These are the pros with deep pockets that have the money to buy up a lot of advertising space but do very little else.

As a newbie real estate agent, I thought using 9's in your listing prices was an easy way to outsmart the property search engines. After all, $199,000 still falls within the $150,000-200,000 search results.

Bill Gassett's curator insight, January 23, 2014 11:28 AM

Why the price you set on a property can have a dramatic effect on how many people view it via MLS. Sometimes when you are a major price point like $200,000 or $300,000 it makes sense to keep it there and not go with something like $199,900 or $299,000.


When doing a search and your home is priced at $200,000 someone doing a search from 150k to 200k will see the home but so will someone searching 200k to $250k. When priced at $199,900 those looking from 200k to $250k will not see the listing.

Bill Gassett's curator insight, August 10, 2015 3:32 PM

Are you trying to sell your home and find yourself completely disappointed with your real estate agent? If you are shaking your head yes you are not alone. I cannot tell you how many times someone asks me how to go about firing their real estate agent. The problem with the real estate industry is the barriers to entry are far too low. Everybody seems to know at least one or two real estate agents.


With the barriers to entry being so low it is very easy for a consumer to get caught with a lousy real estate agent. Many people end up being disappointed and want to know how to go about firing their Realtor.


Unfortunately firing a real estate agent is never an easy process. You can be sure it will be an emotionally charged event. Who wants to get fired?


Before making that decision to get rid of your real estate agent make sure you are doing it for legitimate reasons! In the article I discuss all of the valid points for firing an agent.


Some are fairly obvious while others you may not have thought much about. One of the biggest complaints about the real estate industry is the lack of proper communication skills with Realtors. I can vouch for the fact that this is true as I often have difficulty myself reaching agents.


One of the less obvious reasons is when you have been lied to about the market value of your home. There are many agents who will tell you exactly what you want to hear just to get you to sign a listing contract!


This is in fact against the real estate code of ethics but unfortunately happens all too frequently.


Take a look at the article and while you are at it the funny video I have embedded. While firing a real estate agent is a serious topic, the video will give you a minute to clear the steam you probably already have from dealing with your agent.

Most real estate agents understand how important getting a home ready for the market can be. In fact it can easily make or break a sale. Not only does being well prepared put more money in a sellers pocket but it increases the chances the property will go under agreement quickly.


Each of the bloggers featured has their own unique perspective of what to do when selling a home. Some of the featured authors this month include @Anita Clark@Kyle Hiscock

To me, this is the biggest reason to put 20% down if you can:


No private mortgage insurance (PMI)
Putting 20 percent down allows you to avoid private mortgage insurance. Also called lender’s mortgage insurance, PMI is extra insurance that lenders require from most homebuyers who obtain loans in which the down payment is less than 20 percent of the sales price or appraised value. Many lenders will even add a percentage that is much like an insurance policy onto the mortgage interest rate. Ouch!

How To Tell If You Need A New Roof by Bill Gassett.

Bill Gassett's curator insight, February 23, 2014 10:29 AM

In real estate one of the items that is at the top of everyone's list when buying a home is to make sure that the home does not have any water incursion. Whether it is a leaky roof or a wet basement there is nothing that will deter a buyer faster than water penetration. This fact makes it extremely important to know when to replace a roof especially if you are going to be selling your home. The roof often becomes a bone of contention at home inspections.


The buyer does a home inspection and the home inspector explains to the buyer that there are probably only a few years of life left in the roof. The buyer's automatic thought process is to ask the seller to replace the roof. The seller on the other hand is hearing something totally different. The seller rightfully so, knows that the roof has a years of life left. There are no leaks at the present time and everything structurally is fine.


This is where a skilled real estate agent earns their money. Depending on what side of the fence you are on the agent will want to get the best deal for their client.


More often than not I am representing a seller so I have to try to get my seller the best deal possible. In the article I explain the strategy of dealing with roof replacement and the possible solutions. Often times a compromise is reached in situations where a buyer wants one thing and a seller wants something else.

Debbie Gartner's curator insight, February 23, 2014 12:25 PM

Given the heavy snows and freezing weather this year, this question has come up more often than usual.  Bill Gassett does a great job explaining the things to look into and whether it's just time for a new roof.

 

Unfortunately roofing problems can be expensive - either way.  Either you replace it or you may need to deal with the cost of not replacing it.  Not replacing your roof may cost you in other areas of the home due to water and ice damage.  This may including siding replacement, ceiling and wall repair as well as flooring replacement.

 

So, check it out before you end up paying for additional repairs.
