Now, was that so hard?

For most people, a home is the largest investment that they will ever make.  If you were to look back at what our clients paid for homes and what they are worth today, you will probably agree that it has been an amazing ride.  Why not buy another one?  I have been helping clients with credit and down payment issues for years.

Have you ever considered buying an additional home to be used as rental property in your investment portfolio? A single-family home will increase in value at a rate that exceeds inflation and most other types of investments. I would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about this investment opportunity, in order to explain the benefits of tax shelter and long-term capital gains awarded to real estate, plus the return that you can expect to receive with a minimum of tenant hassles.  
Please call me at 386-846-6220 so we can arrange a time that will be convenient for us.  I also have an analysis form that may be helpful in your research.  I will be happy to email it to you.

Take the Home Test  

Take the Home Test

When you currently own a home and need to sell the current home as well as purchase a new one, the planning of the sale and purchase can be best managed with diligent consideration of the following items:

  1. Realistically pricing your current home based upon the comparable homes that have recently sold in a similar location with similar amenities and upgrades. We are experts in this area!
  2. Do not price your current home based upon what you would like to purchase. The need for money does not increase value.
  1. Consult a mortgage loan officer to understand your financing options based on your net sale proceeds and what you qualify for. You should know your options regarding interim financing and conventional financing.
  1. Understand the current marketplace:
    • What is the average time on the market for homes in the same price range as yours?
    • What is the average time it takes to go from contract to closing?
  1. Use this time as an estimate of the time you will have to find your perfect home. Start looking as soon as you place your current home on the market.  When you find your perfect home, make your offer contingent upon the successful closing of your home (that is under contract, we hope!).  Keep in mind that in a tight market most sellers will be reluctant especially if the home you place an offer on have multiple offers.

Although it might be difficult to imagine purchasing a new home until your current home is under contract and contingencies have been met, you will be in a better position to negotiate with a new seller if your current home is priced correctly.

Team Pinto will keep you up-to-date on the inventory so that you will always know when the perfect home is available.
