Most of the sellers believe that they should price their home 10% to 15% higher than what an agent suggests, to leave room for negotiations. In reality, a well-priced property will sell quickly and close to the listing price. So there is no need to leave room for negotiations.

A seller who prices his property too high to leave room for negotiations can actually be costing himself by wasting time to wait for a high paying buyer. Sellers usually chase an Emotional price, whereas the buyers will pay a Logical price.

The listing price (asking price) is the price a property is currently listed for sale, or in other words at how much it is advertised for. Whereas the sale price is the price a property actually sold at.

We offer a “Free Package” that lasts for up to 15 days for listing your property. However, if you need your listing to last for more time, you may avail our Basic, Advance, and Premium Packages at affordable rates.

MLS basically stands for Multiple Listing Service. It’s a network of real estate listings in an area, where buyers can view what is available in their price range.

Paying the rent is never a good option if you can have your own property. The rents are expenses whereas having your own property is considered an investment; therefore investment is always better than making regular expenses.

No, there is no limit to that.

You may have as many properties as you can afford. The important thing is to be legal, registered, and declared.

Yes, it is.

It not only helps you avoid ambiguities, but it also helps you in getting a better price for your property. After all, a buyer would always prefer a registered property.

It not only helps you avoid ambiguities, but it also helps you in getting a better price for your property. After all, a buyer would always prefer a registered property.

You may grant Special Power of Attorney to someone of your trust to execute the deal on your behalf. However, it is important to understand that the responsibility of all associated matters lies upon you. It is also important to mention that all relevant documents have to be produced at the time of deal.

Power-of-Attorney (POA) is a legal document that grants the power/authority to one person on behalf of another person. The authorized POA can have full or limited authority to make legal decisions on behalf of the owner.

The day on which the property is handed over from the seller to the buyer is called the settlement day. In other words, the keys are handed over to the buyer. This is done through the solicitor after the completion of all necessary documents.

Property Valuation is the process of carrying out the actual value of the property for a specific period of time through a Licensed & certified Valuer. On the other hand, an Appraisal is the opinion of the Real Estate agent about the value of that property.

The profit gain through keeping the property for a specified time period prior to sale is called Capital Gain. For example, you purchase a property at 100,000$ and then sell it after one year 105,000$, your capital gain will be 5,000$.

If a property is held for less than three years prior to sale, it is considered as a Short-Term capital asset and the gain earned would be termed as Short-Term Capital Gain.

The property held for more than three years prior to sale is considered as a Long-Term capital asset and the gain earned would be termed as Long-Term Capital Gain.

Contingencies in a Real Estate contract are the clauses defined as conditions to that contract. In other words, these are the “What ifs” of the contract. It becomes the part of a contract when both parties, the buyer and the seller, mutually agree to the terms and conditions defined for this purpose.

The time it takes to sell a house is completely unpredictable, depending upon the circumstances it may take more days than you think, therefore it would be ideal to sell your property and then look for a new one. It will also help in avoiding any unnecessary sale contingencies, and you will have a better idea of your budget available for the new purchases. For the interim time period, you may avail of a rental option for your living.

It is basically the upfront money from a buyer to show his seriousness and interest to the seller. This money is deposited into an escrow account and treated as a down payment most of the time. The Earnest Money binds the buyer in an agreement and it is forfeited by the buyer if he/she fails to carry out the terms of the contract.

Expenses incurred for the transfer of a property is called Closing Cost i.e. recording fees, documentary, fees, taxes, real estate commission, title insurance, and settlement fees. These are negotiable charges as to who will be responsible for their payment, the buyer, or the seller.

It is a general perception in the real estate business that a Realtor is the same as an Agent. However, it is a wrong perception, because Realtor is the name of professionalism, ethical approach, the educated thought process, and well-researched working. On the other hand, an agent is a salesperson who generally pursues the goal of maximizing the profit for himself and his company only.

The rent agreement is usually registered for up to 11 months that means it is considered to expire after 11 months. However, both parties (tenant & owner) may extend the tenure with mutual consent. Usually, the increase in rent in such cases is 10% but it depends upon the stakeholders if they want to fix it at a negotiable rate.

Loan

Yes, we do. We facilitate such services through designated banks.

It is the process of providing all supporting details that show that the client id qualified for getting the loan, the required information includes Financial Status, Income, Debt, and assets. Banks utilize this information to assess the credibility of the applicant and approve his loan on the basis of evaluation.

The next step after getting Pre-Qualified is called Pre-Approved. In this process, the application along with all relevant documents for the loan is submitted officially. All these procedures allow the applicant to get know the amount of loan he is eligible for even before getting it. In this way, he may think and plan his budget according to his affordability.

Most of the banks require a guarantor for processing your loan; therefore it is quite difficult to get a loan without a guarantor. After all, the entire lender would always want surety for repayment of his money.

Always remember that loan comes with markup & interest and such additional costs may disturb your budget. Therefore it is important to consider that if such additional costs are bearable, you must go for a loan otherwise the in-hand money is the most suitable option for any investment.

The down payment is the upfront amount paid for the purchase of a property. Usually, it is 15 to 20 percent of the total price. Banks and financial institutions process loans once the down payment is processed. And the lent amount is therefore not more than 75 to 80 percent of the total cost usually.

A pre-approved loan usually takes 5 to 15 days for processing of payment after verification and confirmation of documents and application. Once the loan is sanctioned it is transferred to the account of the applicant immediately.

In case, the buyer of property defaults on his loan; the lender may take over the ownership of that property and can sell it to recover his loan amount. Such sale is called Mortgagee Sale. Even though these transactions are smoother but it is important to understand that if you are considering the purchase of such property it would be sold on an “as-is” basis.

The natural process of building equity is through Market Appreciation. Otherwise when making your monthly mortgage payment; you may try to spend a little bit more. This will directly go to the principal of the loan rather than the interest. Even an extra $50 per month can quickly build equity as well as knock years off of your loan.

The formula is simple, the longer the tenure, the lesser would be your EMI but you will have to pay more interest, and vice-versa.
