Why I’m Particularly Thankful This Thanksgiving

Why I’m Particularly Thankful This Thanksgiving

I’m truly thankful for the trust, confidence and the real estate business my clients have entrusted in me throughout this year in Farmington Hills Michigan and the surrounding areas. It seems saying thanks would be enough, but sometimes it seems lacking in some ways as it is a word people use very often, especially in the real estate profession. In this blog post I wanted to share the many ways that I’m thankful thankful thanksgivingand blessed to have been your realtor of choice this last year, and hopefully the coming year to some your friends and family as well.

I hope your own Thanksgiving celebrations are equally as full of  being thankful as mine are. As a professional Farmington Hills Michigan realtor and in my personal life the word “thankful” means so much more to me than being appreciated.

Thankful for You

Thanksgiving’s a day we get together with family and friends. Some we see often. Others we see but a few times a year.

We come together to give thanks for all we have on our lives…and eat way too much.

Here’s what I’m thankful for this year (and every year)…

That’s basically every day of the year for me.

Being a real estate agent, I’m constantly gathering with friends and family. (Minus the eating too much part.)

So, I’ve gotten to see many of you throughout the year, and celebrated with you along the way, when you bought or sold a home.

I’m thankful to each and every one of you who gave me the opportunity to be a part of your real estate celebrations this year…

… and I look forward to celebrating with many more of you in the coming year, and years to come, when you buy or sell a home.

But for now, enjoy this day of rest and thanks. (And go eat way too much!)

P.S. Oh, and another thing I’m thankful for… all of the clients you refer to me. Remember: I’m never too busy for your referrals.

 
Selling your home in Farmington Hills Michigan as-is

Selling your home in Farmington Hills Michigan as-is

selling your home in Farmington Hills Michigan as-is

If you have viewed properties for sale recently, you have probably come across the term as-is. Homeowners may prefer to sell as-is, but it is important to learn how a potential might react to it. Here is important information on selling your home in Farmington Hills Michigan as-is.

Understanding What the Term As-Is Means

As-is means that a home will be sold in its current state. This covers any problems that may exist, whether they are obvious or not. Buyers must perform an inspection to better assess any problems before finalizing the sale. Based on previous cases involving as-is clauses, the specific interpretation may actually vary by state.

Disclosure of Property Condition

No matter whether the term as-is is used in a property sale, home sellers have a obligation to divulge any material defects. The use of as-is is not a way to enable sellers to lie about issues. Sellers must understand this.

How Buyers May React

Encountering the term as-is in a home sale is normally scary for many buyers. Many assume that it must have considerable problems. For those that are prepared to accept a property as-is, they will often offer less to reflect the as-is condition. Buyers may consult with a lawyer to fully understand the possible risks.

Seller Benefits of As-Is Conditions

Sellers often use the condition as-is to basically disclose that they are unable to complete any repairs on a home before settlement. But, from a legal perspective, the meaning goes beyond that. The term is useful to a home seller since it creates some scope of protection against future claims from a buyer. For buyers, it is typically a red flag and they must move forward with care.
