Selling Brooklyn Real Estate: 5 Tips to Pick a Powerful Listing Agent

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011


Here are five tips to help you identify the best Brooklyn real estate agent to get your home sold as fast as possible and for the most money.

  1. Hire a full-time Brooklyn real estate agent.  Part-time agents typically have less experience and fewer sold properties under their belts than full-time agents.  Because part-time agents usually have another job, they don’t have as much time to take care of your needs and market and show your home to potential buyers.  Full-time agents have bigger networks they can enlist to help find a buyer for your home.
  2. Find a skilled negotiator. A seasoned Brooklyn real estate agent understands the psychological nature of selling a home.  They advise you during the contract negotiations to ensure you get the best deal while alleviating your stress.
  3. 3. Pick an aggressive marketer.  Without a well-implemented, far-reaching marketing program, your house will sit on the market these days.  You want an agent who promotes your home both online and offline, in order to reach the greatest number of potential buyers.  Simply having your home listed on Realtor.com is no longer enough of an online presence.  You want your home showcased on multiple websites with a lot of professional photos and, ideally, a video tour.
  4. Choose an agent who knows your Brooklyn neighborhood.  Each neighborhood has different pros and cons which must be promoted or overcome by the agent.  An effective real estate agent knows how to price your Brooklyn property because they know the local competition, which homes that have closed recently are similar to yours and how much they’ve sold for.
  5. Ask for home staging services.  Home staging is no longer a “nice to have;” it’s now a “must have,” if you want to sell your home for the most money in the least amount of time.  Many agents are now professional stagers or have a home stager on their teams.

Choosing a powerful listing agent is your first step toward a successful home sale.

If you’d like to work with an agent who is a skilled negotiator, an aggressive marketer, provides home staging services and works full time, Give me a call Charles D’Alessandro Your Brooklyn Realtor® with Fillmore Real Estate at 718/253-9600 ext 206 or email me at [email protected].

Double-Check Public Records on Your Brooklyn New York Home for Sale

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

Marketing your Brooklyn New York home for sale can be tough enough in this economy without having other sources working against you. That’s why you should double-check your Brooklyn property’s public records. Large discrepancies between your property description and what’s listed as public record could be turning potential buyers away.

If the public property report for your house is not up to date, you could appear as if you’re inflating its qualities, such as the square footage or the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Don’t let something so simple hurt your property’s sale. Consider taking the following steps to ensure your home is being portrayed accurately.

  1. Review your property’s public record. If it matches the information that you and your real estate agent have been promoting for your house, then you’re good to go. It won’t take long, and it will give you peace of mind.
  2. Ensure that your house’s updates, renovations and additions are all included. Evaluate the report to determine if any updates have been made but not recorded. Was there an addition added without a building permit or a basement finished to include another bedroom? Every square foot counts!
  3. Fix any discrepancies. Check with your county tax assessor about updating your public record; they’ll want an accurate report for tax purposes anyway. While this might take some time and effort, having an accurate description of your property could help you sell it faster and avoid more months of mortgage payments.

Not only could an inaccurate public record hurt your Brooklyn home for sale, it could also hurt your house’s value.  Typically, real estate appraisers only consider square footage that they can verify through a building permit. If your records aren’t up to date, you may end up getting less than your property is worth.

If your Brooklyn  home for sale has yet to sell and you’d like more information on how to check its public records, give Charles D’Alessandro your Brooklyn Realtor® with Fillmore Real Estate a call at (718)253-9600 ext.206 or email me at  [email protected]

Buying A Fixer Upper In Brooklyn? How About The 203k Rehabilitation Mortgage Insurance ?

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

What is A 203k Rehabilitaion Mortgage?

Shopping for a Brooklyn home isn’t always so easy. After you go to a lender to learn how much of a mortgage you qualify for then research the Brooklyn neighborhood and maybe school district you would like to live in.

Now it’s time to find a Realtor to show you houses. As you look around at the houses that are for sale you find some are too big, too small ,not the right street, just right but I hate the kitchen or  the property is in total disrepair, sound familiar to anyone? Well for the Brooklyn house that is in disrepair there is an answer. 203k Rehabilitation Mortgage Insurance, this mortgage Section 203(k) fills a unique and important need for home buyers.

When buying a house that needs repair or modernization, home buyers usually have to follow a complicated and costly process. The interim acquisition and improvement loans often have relatively high interest rates, short repayment terms and a balloon payment. However, Section 203(k) offers a solution that helps both borrowers and lenders, insuring a single, long term, fixed or adjustable rate loan that covers both the acquisition and rehabilitation of a property. Section 203(k) insured loans save borrowers time and money. They also protect the lender by allowing them to have the loan insured even before the condition and value of the Brooklyn property may offer adequate security.

This option allows you to buy the handyman special and borrow the repair money needed to get the house renovated.  Now it does have a process and requirements but it’s a great way to get that perfect ugly duckling to what you want it to be. For the houses that might just need a little sprucing up like kitchens and baths there is  another option called FHA’s Streamlined 203(k) program permits home buyers to finance up to an additional $35,000 into their mortgage to improve or upgrade their home before move-in. With this new product, home buyers can quickly and easily tap into cash to pay for property repairs or improvements, such as those identified by a home inspector or FHA appraiser.

This program is not for everyone it can be time consuming with a lot of involvement, the program is just another option to explore and an example of  the great mortgage programs out there to help buyers and sellers to achieve their goal, Remember research is a top priority. Always do you homework !
