What Should You Expect From Your Real Estate Agent?

Screen shot 2013-03-07 at 12.39.43 PM

Being an EXPERT ADVISER!

I was reading an article from KCM BLOG-Steve Harney about Real Estate New’s Market Reality and I found very interesting that that’s the way we have always seen our business. We as agents, more than provide readily available information, have to provide you with interpretation of what that information means. While many agents were scaring their Seller’s that prices would be going down we were posting stats showing the trend that actually became our Market Reality. Of course we have to look at closed sales and those would be the comparable sales appraisers will look at; but when we lack inventory we know that Seller’s expectations are higher that past sales and prices will tend to increase.

We are very skeptical of nationwide data provided by the media, since every sub-market behaves differently. As we have mentioned before, Weston was one of the lasts markets to feel the pain “when the music stopped” as a fellow realtor refers to, and one of the firsts to start the recovery.

” Your role as a real estate professional is similar to the role of the doctor and lawyer. You can’t give buyers or sellers perfect advice because you don’t know what’s going to happen—you can’t know the future. However, you can give excellent advice based on the information and situation at hand. You can guide them through the process and help them make the necessary changes along the way. and that’s exactly what your clients want…and deserve

” You shouldn’t be trying to convince someone to do something (that’s what salespeople do); instead, you should be helping your clients discover what their options are, explaining the pros and cons of each of those options, and then letting them make the decision that is best for them and their families. That’s what a trusted advisor, with the heart of a teacher does.

Working with agent that knows your market and have the experience to provide expert advice all the way through the transaction, will make your life much easier.

MASAN Asian Grill – Weston’s Best Kept Secret

Masan Asian Grill

I couldn’t believe, when I went to MASAN for the first time this week, that they have been open for almost one and a half years. I just heard about the place about 2 weeks ago… and it is fabulous. Chao told us “most of the clients have come by word of mouth and YELP “…  I decided to help spread the word about this place and in a matter of days I have told more than people about MASAN and they didn’t know it was there either. We are very fortunate to have a chef of his caliber provide us fresh, very fresh Asian food at such reasonable prices in Weston, where the choices to eat out are so limited. Chao was a chef for Cafe Sambal at Mandarin Oriental  Hotel (MIAMI), Hakkasan at Fontainbleau Hotel (MIAMI BEACH) and Makoto (BAL HARBOUR).

Creating your own stir-fry may be tempting but the rest of the menu looks too good to miss it. I just tried the stir-fry and the avocado egg rolls but I have selected already what I will have the next time I go… all mouth watering.

I can’t miss to mention that Chao Ma is as friendly that you feel you met him a long time ago. You can either dine-in, take out or ask for delivery!

Now you know about this great place in Weston, enjoy it, please help spread the word and YELP it!

Understanding Deficiency Judgements-What Happens When You Let Your Home go to Foreclosure?

Make an Informed Decision…

When we are approached by a Homeowner who is is considering stop or already stopped paying his mortgage we recommend them to talk to a foreclosure defense attorneys to get a good understanding of what they are getting into (Actually it would be better to meet 2 or 3 to get different points of view). A few years ago most attorneys offered a free first consultation but lately we have heard that most of them charge a basic fee for that first consultation; and I find it’s just fair! Even if you have to pay, it’s important to understand the possible consequences of a short sale, a foreclosure or any other option you may be considering. It is your opportunity to ask all the questions you may have.

In our Rotary Club Meeting this morning we had Roy Oppenheim as a guest speaker and he mentioned his Law Blog. We found in his site this great video that can’t explain better what a Deficiency Judgement is and how it can affect YOU.

If you are considering walking away from your home please call us at (954) 588-7260 or contact us and we can provide you with a few names of attorneys you may contact to set up that important meeting and to help you know how much your home is worth in Today’s market.
