A very good morning to all my fans out there. I hope your morning is off to an amazing start. Eduardo (Eddie) Acevedo of Superior Real Estate Team of Re/Max posting from lovely Hollywood, Florida. The weather looks like it may be a nice cloudy and rainy day but you never know here in Florida. It could look like this one minute and be snowing the next.
Nonetheless our post must go on.
Time, there never seems to be enough of it and we at times lose track of it and wonder where it went. How many times has your expression been like the one below?
You are running late for the bus or school or maybe a special event and you just didn’t seem to keep track of the time. I know I have definitely felt this way before and I am sure you have to. However, the time we are talking about today is focused on the time involved with Real Estate. Now the examples and topics I may present today may not hit home for you in your area but nevertheless they are still important.
Recently I have noticed that because of how fast our world moves people have a tendency to lose track of time and that is a very dangerous thing to do when your dealing with Real Estate. I would recommend that you mark all important dates on your calendar or heck even put them in your phone to remind you of what’s coming up.
Just yesterday I was speaking to a home buyer that lost track of their time frame for their inspection period and than they called me because they wanted to know if there was anything they could do to save their deposit.
See experiences like this have taught me to keep track of time.
Furthermore, when it comes to buying a home always keep in mind the time required to close on your new home. Meaning the time needed to make the home yours. I would ask questions to the bank, title company and even the inspection and appraisal companies on what their time frame looks like. Because if you have to move, in a certain amount of time you may want to plan accordingly.
Also, if their is a Home Owners Association (HOA) in place, you need to find out how much time it will take for approval or even if approval or application to the HOA is necessary when purchasing a home in their community.
See all these various items that revolve around time.
For all you renters out there your tracking of time is even more vital to the success of your transaction. At least here in South Florida the rentals in places with leasing offices can be pretty quick and some even offer a same day move in but you know where the the catch is? It’s with the amount of home your money gets. Remember your paying in some way or form for that agent in the leasing office to be there. So you might get more bang for your buck to go with a private owner. However, in either case time is of the essence.
Since I have found over the years that people usually begin to look to late in their search for a new home or they drag their feet when they do find a home to make an offer on. All these factors can seriously hurt your chances to get the home you want and in the time frame you want and/or need.
Remember time is one of those things that keeps moving with or without us. So don’t be paranoid about the time but keep a watchful eye on it because once it’s gone you know it’s not coming back.
