“You want to get to the place where you have a healthy detachment from external forces, pressures, demands, emotional pulls and the neediness of others.

BE needless and difficult to manipulate.”

Staging REALLY, REALLY does make a difference in how quickly the home sells and for what price.

Staging is just so darn appealing to buyers–it is eye-candy and can make every home look delicious!

NEGOTIATION MASTERY TIPS Be Willing To Wait It Out by JULIE HUTTON

Be willing to wait it out.

Psychologists know that most people are exceptionally uncomfortable in highly ambiguous situations, or handling the unknown for long periods of time. It is too stressful, too complex.

Often the negotiator will unknowingly blow it up just to get the interaction to some point of resolution.

‘No, it is not going to come together’ is more comfortable then ‘Maybe (the unknown), it will come together.’

Take your time. Be responsive but be willing to wait it out if necessary.

NEGOTIATION MASTERY Getting Past The First Rejection by JULIE HUTTON

NEGOTIATION TIP One way to neutralize a rejection of an offer

You bring a good offer/counter-offer to the table and their immediate blustery response is, “No way am I going for that price.”

Your response is, as you’re gathering up your papers, putting them back in the folder, preparing to put them back in your carrying case, ‘Okay. I hear you. This is a really good offer based on the comps available to us at this time and the current status of the market. I highly encourage our review of this offer and see what we can make of it.’

They see your ‘actions’. Remember, actions speak louder than words. The instinctual response to draw you back in kicks in and they drop the bluster and start engaging you with meaningful, substantive dialogue—dialogue that you can now work with and begin to mold the next productive step towards a successful conclusion.

Your goal is to just take it one step at a time.

Buyer BEWARE: Mortgage Loan: Terms Change At Signing

Buyers told one thing at PreApproval and PreQualifying appointment— for instance, 5% interest on 2nd loan.

At signing/closing of transaction they discover the 2nd is actually at 8%, not 5%.

You can call this Bait-and-Switch or you can call this MORTGAGE FRAUD.

The buyer’s are caught between a rock and a hard place. They can refusing to close all together, or hold up closing to try and iron it all out, or accept the transaction with the higher interest rate.

Meanwhile the buyer’s furniture is in the moving van, their rental is already sublet, and the seller’s furniture is in the moving van and the home has been cleaned spotless, ready for the new buyers.

Now the buyer’s can’t get any lower interest rate than that anywhere else so there is no point in holding up closing for two weeks to run it through another mortgage company, but that particular loan officer gets the business. (They do this to outshine all the other competition at the  pre-approval/pre-qualifying period several weeks/months prior.  Remember, IF IT SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE… IT IS.)

This makes me REALLY mad. Hope it makes you mad too!

How to make sure this doesn’t happen to you:

BE sure to get a GFE (Good Faith Estimate from your loan officer in advance). Make sure the loan and rate you are quoted is in black and white and you keep it in your possession.

Review it with other reputable loan officers as you shop for your mortgage officer. They will be QUICK to point out that it is TOOOOOOO Good to be True.

Have your real estate broker/agent advise the loan officer that they report suspicious bait-  and- switch or fraudulent behavior (let them be the ‘Bad Cop’ for you).

I always tell my clients, “Listen, I’ve got your back. I have a very low tolerance for this behavior.”

Warmest,  Julie Hutton

33% of Homeowners Owe More Than Their Home Is Worth

“The owners of one-third of the houses in the Seattle metro area now owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth, Zillow estimates.”*

*SOURCE:  http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2014166638_zillow09.html

(If you have a friend in the Seattle metro area experiencing this issue, would you please email them this link. I can help.)

Being in real estate and specializing in working with sellers that want to sell their homes, I come in contact with this reality every day.

If you purchased a home after 2004, this probably means you.

Many homeowners are now trapped in homes they can’t sell yet needing to lower their expenses or relocate to jobs elsewhere.

Also, many homeowners have been downsized with less earnings OR who have lost their jobs altogether. If they have savings, they have depleted those assets trying to keep up their mortgage payments. Ultimately, they run out of savings and still are tied to a home they can no longer afford.

What was once a blessing has now become a burden.

This is forcing many families into short sales, foreclosures, bankruptcy and destroying their credit rating.

If you’re concerned about your real estate situation, don’t hesitate to call or email. I can help. Don’t be ashamed or embarrassed. It is happening to millions of people.

I can quickly assess your situation and recommend many resources, even attorneys (bankruptcy and real estate) that may be in your best interest.

Like I said, don’t go into denial and waste precious time to take care of yourself and your family in the best way possible. I can help. I can quickly size up your real estate situation and suggest options for you. I have an abundance of affordable resources.

Before getting back into real estate seven years ago I was a counselor/life coach for 23 years. I am highly skilled at helping people find workable solutions for their lives—now for their ‘real estate’ related lives. <grins>

Besides being highly compassionate for your situation (we deal with it every day), I will keep your information confidential.

You will get through this situation and come out better for on the other-side. Just take one step at a time.

Once you’ve cleared away the debris you can start rebuilding your net worth and your credit rating. I can help here too. (There are some no-cost, truly reputable credit repair companies associated with real estate and homeownership.) You can and WILL rebuild your credit again.

Email me…. Julie@JulieHutton.com I can help!

Warmest, Julie
