7 Home Insurance Tasks to Complete While in Your Home Inspection Period

1.  Contact an Insurance Professional on Day 1.

It’s important to begin securing your insurance for your new home early in the process not later.  You want to discover any issues which my increase your premium or impact qualification for insurance as early as possible so you can address them promptly.  Preferably, contact an Independent Agent who will do the shopping for you among many top insurance carriers.  They’ll know which companies have favorably underwriting and pricing for your individual situation.

2.  Review the CLUE reports.

Yes, there are two CLUE reports.  You should request the seller’s CLUE report, but more importantly, when working with your insurance professional you’ll need to review YOUR report.  Your agent will get information on the SUBJECT (that’s you) and the RISK (that’s the property you’re buying).  Your past claims matter, and could impact your potential rate or even qualification so this is a must do task during the inspection period.

3. Request all tree branches be trimmed back from the roof.

This may seem like a strange request but it’s important to do.  Many insurance companies will complete a “Drive-by” home inspection (at a minimum). If the inspector sees branches hanging on the roof many insurance companies will send a notice of cancellation of the insurance policy if the problem isn’t rectified.  Don’t go through this needless stress, address the problem early.

4.  Send your inspection report to your insurance agent.

Many more insurance carriers are requesting this report today to grant Home Buyer discounts and or to verify the current condition of the home.  In the past, I’ve used this report to gain approval from an insurance company underwriter when there was a major fire at a property to be insured.  Your insurance professional should be reviewing this report with you from an insurance perspective; 99% of agents don’t.

5.  Consider Bundling your auto and home insurance to save money.

How would you like to get your home insurance paid for by the savings that bundling your auto insurance brings?  I’ve witnessed this many times.  Unless you’re closing your home purchase in 10 days or less you have plenty of time to work with your agent to find the best package policy and price for your situation.  Don’t leave any money on the table.

6.  Meet with your Insurance Professional personally to review the final policy selection.

Resist the urge to have your documents mailed to you.  If the agent you choose only wants to mail your application to you for signatures then you’ve picked the wrong agent or company.  After all, your home purchase is probably the single most expensive asset you’ve ever purchased so why would you want your agent to “Mail it in?”  The right professional agent will make the time to meet with you; don’t waste this opportunity to have a detailed review of the insurance that may someday be needed after a damaging peril.

7.  Complete a Home Inventory of your stuff while moving.

In know it’s a busy time moving but what better time is there to log serial numbers of major electronics or take pictures or video your belongings while packing-unpacking.  There is even fantastic online software to help you itemize and value your stuff by room so you have a permanent record of your inventory if you should ever need to provide it to your insurance company.  I recommend DocuHome.  Find out more about this program at http://www.swpremierins.com/content/homeinventorysolution.aspx

How to Get the Home You Want!

1.  Get Ready

Talk to your mortgage professional about your financial situation and credit history to determine your loan options.  It’s important to know how much house you can afford based on your down payment and income.  A strong letter of a pre-approval can really add to your bargaining power.

Have a meeting with your real estate agent.  Discuss your needs and preferences and establish the best method for your agent to send listings and communicate with you about available properties.  Tap into his or her knowledge of the local market.  When it comes time to act, your agent will represent your interests in negotiations and work to ensure a smooth transaction.

2.  Shop Smart

Expect to pay more for a showplace; if you consider a fixer-upper, judge structural deficiencies more harshly than cosmetic flaws.  It can be costly to replace major components or to change the layout, but redecorating with flooring, fixtures or paint is relatively easy and sometimes offers instant equity potential.

Location is key. Even if the site seems perfect for you at the present time, think  about whether it will appeal to a large pool of buyers if you should decide to sell in the future.

3.  Got For It!

To write a winning offer without overpaying, look at the prices for comparable sales.  Consider whether the property is in a high-demand area or if there is plenty of competition.  Ask your agent to find out why it is for sale and if the seller seems motivated.  If you accommodate the seller’s preferred closing dates or other terms, he or she may be more flexible with the price.

Do Your Due Diligence

Schedule a home inspection after coming to terms.  Many sellers expect to address issues related to safety or building codes, and additional repairs (or a credit) may be negotiated. Make sure all of your questions or concerns regarding the home’s condition are answered through the inspection process.

If you must sell your current home to afford a new one, consider putting it on the market before starting your search.  You can often negotiate a better deal on a purchase if your property is under contract or you already have the cash in hand.

Thinking About Selling a Home?

Here are some essential tips for sellers and aspiring home buyers.  Make sure you also lean into your trusted real estate professional for additional insight and guidance.

SMART STRATEGIES FOR SELLERS

Putting a home up for sale can be stressful, and some owners have a hard time making objective decisions when it matters most.  Homeowners consistently overestimate the market value of their homes by 5 to 10 percent.¹

PRICE IT RIGHT

Your listing agent will perform a current market analysis.  Look closely at the sales of similar homes that have closed in the last 90 days and take the number of available listings into account when agreeing to an asking price.

KEEP IN MIND

  • Homes that have failed to attract a homebuyer in a reasonable period of time may be overpriced.
  • Foreclosures or short sales in your neighborhood can impact your home’s market value.
  • It doesn’t pay to set the price too high; most buyers will need financing and the bank will generally use an appraisal based on recent sales to justify the loan amount.

Your agent may recommend that you perform repairs to correct visible flaws – or even suggest staging your home so it feels more spacious and potential buyers can picture themselves living there.

TAKE ADVANTAGE YOUR MARKET DEBUT

Pricing your home competitively from the get-go increases the odds of a quick sale.

  • Nearly 35% of buyers looked online for properties as their first step and 40% found the home they ultimately purchased on the internet.²  If your home is priced too high when it hits the market, you run the risk that active, qualified buyers will scroll right past it.
  • New listings are called “hot” for a reason – buyers get excited about them.  Showings are likely to cool off noticeably after the first 30 days on the market.
  • When weighing an offer, make sure to consider the potential costs of holding on to your property longer than you want or need to (including the mortgage, property taxes, insurance, maintenance, etc.)

SWEETEN THE DEAL

Sellers who agree to pay the buyers’ closing costs can make it easier for first-timers to obtain financing, while offering to throw in appliances, upgrade allowances or other perks could swing a buyer’s decision your direction.

How to Prepare for a Bidding War

In many areas around the US, low inventory is causing bidding wars to erupt between buyers. According to a recent study, over half of buyers faced competition on an offer they wrote. How can you outbid others buyers and get the house you love at a price you can afford? Follow these simple tips:

Do your research. If you have your heart set on living in a certain neighborhood, find out how long a typical home in that location stays on the market before selling and how much homes are selling for. This will give you a realistic estimate of what you can expect to spend.

Get pre-approved for a mortgage. Pre approval, in addition to getting the rest of your finances in order, will help you figure out how much you can spend without over extending yourself financially.

Pick your battles. Many people are eager for a great deal on a foreclosed property or a fixer-upper. When competitive bids are involved, it’s easy to overbid and negate the discount. If you’re a firs-time home buyer, you may end up in a bidding war with experienced investors who are in the market to flip a home for profit. Remember, buying a foreclosed property or home that’s in disrepair will involve a fair amount of renovation after it’s purchased. While minor repairs and updates are often par for the course in any home purchase, make sure you’re ready to handle the demands of these high-maintenance properties before you bid.

Maintain perspective. If you bid is rejected, its natural to become more aggressive when you bid on the next home. However, this may cause you to pay more than you had originally intended. While no one likes rejection, don’t take the bidding war too personally.

Have the cash to cover the difference between the negotiated price and the appraised value of the home. Mortgages often do not cover more than the homes appraised value. Since appraisals are partially based on comparable sales in the area, it’s possible for the appraised value to be lower than the negotiated price due to foreclosed and distressed properties. In this case, it’s helpful to have enough money saved to make up the difference.

If you’re in the market for a new home, we can help! Call me to learn more.

10 Tips for Buyers & Sellers

Traditionally, spring has been the time that many buyers and sellers become motivated to enter the real estate market. The warm weather and longer days encourage potential buyers to get out and look for a home that fits their needs and budget. Similarly, sellers can take advantage of the seasonal flowers and favorable weather to boost the curb appeal of their homes. If you’re in the market for a new home or are thinking of putting your home on the market, here are some tips to help you get ready.

95% of first-time homebuyers and 86% of repeat buyers financed their home purchase.*

5 Tips for Buyers

1. Get your credit in shape. If you plan to finance your home purchase, check your credit history, especially if you’re a first-time buyer. That way, you can correct any errors, and take measures to boost your credit score. Order one free credit report a year from Annualcreditreport.com.

2. Get pre-approved for a mortgage. Early in your search, meet with a mortgage lender who will take a look at your credit history, your savings and investment statements and your current financial situation, and give you a better picture of what you can afford and the financing options available.

3. Establish your budget. Whether you’re financing your purchase or paying cash, it helps to establish a budget. This will help you focus your search on great homes within your price range.

4. Make a list. Buying a home is a process of elimination, not a process of selection. Make a list of your ideal home’s must haves and deal breakers. This will help you to narrow your search so that you can find a home that fits your current and future needs.

5. Think about resale. The average homeowner lives in their home for nine years.* While you may purchase your home as long-term investment, keep in mind that you may need to sell it one day. Consider the homes resale value when you’re loooking at properties.

*Source: NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers 2013

5 Tips for Sellers

1. Clear the clutter. Before you put your home on the market, clear the clutter that’s accumulated over the years. Tackle room at a time, and divide your items into three piles: keep, donate and toss.

2. Get packing. Although you don’t want to pack all of your belongings, it helps to start boxing up the items that you want to keep, but won’t use for a while, such as out of season clothing or sporting equipment.

3. Research the local market. Knowing how much the homes in your neighborhood are selling for and how long they stayed on the market can help you gauge your home’s value and estimate a time frame for the sale.

4. Repair and improve. Boost your home’s curb appeal by doing minor repairs and improvements inside the home and out. Tackle any necessary repairs, paint your walls a neutral color and replace light fixtures or appliances that are damaged or out of date. And, don’t forget to clean-potential buyers can’t enjoy the views if the windows are too dirty to see through.

5. Be realistic. While it’s good to get a feel for the local market, be realistic about the selling process. Having realistic expectations for your home sale will help to relieve some of the stress of selling.

An Overview of Today’s Buyers and Sellers*

42% of buyers looked online for properties as their first step in the home buying process.

The typical buyer searched for 12 weeks in viewed 10 homes.

More than half of buyers said that finding the right home was the most difficult step in the home buying process.

Sellers sold their homes for an average of 97% of the listing price.

Sellers reported that their homes were on the market a median of 5 weeks before the sold.

*What is title insurance? An insurance policy-protecting against loss should the condition of title to land be other than as insured.

*Why do I need title insurance? When you buy a home, or any property for that matter, you expect to enjoy certain benefits from ownership. For example, you expect to be able to occupy and use the property as you wish, to be free from debts or obligatioins not created or agreed to by you , and to be able to freely sell or pledge your prorerty as security for a loan. Title insurance is disigned to cover these rights.

*What does it cost? The cost varies, depending mainly on the value of your property. The important thing to remember is that you only pay once, then the coerage continues in effect for so long as you have an interest in the property. If you should die, the coverage automatically continues for the benefit of your heirs.
