Orange County Real Estate Market Update 

The real estate market is BOOMING! There aren’t enough houses on the market for the amount of buyers that want homes. I wanted to share some things to consider that will make the transition and experience meet all of your expectations.

Sellers Beware | Limited Inventory 

What...You’ve got 17 offers on your home and you have no idea which one to choose. Seller Beware, it's a crazy competitive sellers market. I’ve done a series of videos this month that will educate you and give you all the in’s out’s of what you need to know and think about when selling. Hi my name is Gabe Cole with REALM Residential and EXP Realty and I’ve been selling homes in Orange County for nearly 20 years! I’ve been involved in over 600 real estate transactions, so there isn’t much that I haven’t seen or experienced. We’ll be talking about things like contingencies, loan approvals, appraisals, rent backs, making sure you get the money you’re expecting, closing on time, which offer you should choose and why, and making sure the buyers haven’t written offers on any other properties.

Introducing REALM Trade-In

REALM Trade-In | Orange County Real Estate 2021 One of the most common obstacles for home sellers in the market is the need to sell your home before you can purchase your next one. Here’s the dilemma: you try to find your replacement property first, but spin your wheels for months as nobody will accept your contingent offer! You could sell your home first but you don’t want to deal with all the uncertainties you may face if you can’t find your next home in a timely manner. I get it, nobody wants to move twice and the thought of not having somewhere to go once your home sells can be a very intimidating situation. That's why we have REALM Trade-In! It’s the easy button you have been looking for without leaving money on the table. Here is a quick overview of the process.

Don't Leave Money on the Table

Don't Leave Money on the Table! Here is quick story of one of my clients that I have worked with on 5 transactions throughout about 15 years now. They called me, they had been remodeling their home, and were pretty close to being done. They received letters from an agent in the mail that they had a buyer for their home- and they asked for my input for selling their home off the market. We ended up putting it on the market for $1.1, and closed at $1.2M.

Orange County Real Estate | Seller Tips | What to Look for in an Offer! 

The Real Estate market is on FIRE. This has many people considering selling their house...but there are a few things to consider and think about before doing so! It can be nerve racking with so many offers being thrown at you- but don't worry- I've got you covered! There is a lot that I have learned over the years. Obviously, you want the best offer with the best terms. One thing buyers may do to stand out is to remove contingencies on their offer. Watch out this month in your newsfeed for videos that will educate you and help you make sure you have a safe, lucrative, and fun experience while selling. Sometimes, they may offer way over value and then attempt to renegotiate once the appraisal has come back. This is why it is important to make sure the buyer removes their appraisal contingency upfront.
