Why do you need an Experienced Realtor

by The Pilgrim Team

 

 

Nobody would go without health insurance, if they could avoid it, would they?

The cost of repairing our bodies is just too high to bear, without financial help. But what if health insurance was free? Wouldnt you sign up for it? Of course you would.Were like a lawn in need of an application of rain or fertilizer. We need more protein. To get the feeding you need, be sure you get enough meat, fish, cheese, beans, nuts and other protein-containing foods. If you cant get cottage cheese, wheat germ or peanut butter while youre on the run, then hit a drive-through and grab a milkshake.

Yes, its true that most of us get enough protein, but anyone over age 65, preteen girls and anyone facing surgery or other stress could use more protein, just to be safe. Thats just the insurance you need!

For all the right stuff in your diet, be sure to include protein. And in your next real estate transaction, be sure to include me!

What is a Real Estate Professional Really Worth Paying?

by The Pilgrim Team

In today’s market what you need to be the most concerned about is what level of marketing you can expect from a Realtor. Secondly the Realtor must have the ability to negotiate not just with the buyers on your property to get the highest price for you, but also there is a high incidence of properties not appraising for the sales price on the contracts. When that happens I then must negotiate with the appraiser to prove to them that the value they came up with is incorrect and that they must change the appraisal. I have made and saved my home sellers thousands of dollars due to my experience and knowledge of the market. Please don’t get caught up on a difference of 1% broker fee when actually a fulltime agent such as me can save you thousands of dollars particularly in today’s market. If you want a fulltime professionals real estate agent in York, PA call me Jerry Pilgrim of Pilgrim Team of Professional Realty Associates.

Thinking about Buying a Short Sale?

by The Pilgrim Team

So you want to buy a house and have noticed that the best deals in Useful Information about York PA are typically short sales. Buy you've talked to people and they have told you not to buy one because they have heard stories about how someone they new wanted to buy a Short Sale and they waited for months and they never did buy it.

There are a few reasons for short sale not to be approved by the Lenders.

1. The Realtor who has the listing has NO knowledge of the process and shouldn't have taken it to begin with. Not only did the house did not sell to the buyer but they also may have jeopardized the homeowners chance to keep the house from Foreclosure.

2. The Realtor listed the house at a very low price to get an offer from a buyer, knowing full well the offer would most likely be countered back at a much higher price which the buyer will not accept or can't accept because they cannot be approved by their lender to get a Home Financing for the property at the higher price. Now the Realtor who listed the property thinks they have an approved price (but they really don't) and re-lists the house at that price and they change the price and now claims it is approved. Wrong! Once another offer comes in the offer must be approved again even if it is the "approved" asking price.

3. The Realtor does not know what the Lenders want during the negotiating process and cannot present a complete short sale package. What happens is the negotiator may totally reject the offer.

4. The Realtor may continue to take back up offers and forward them to the bank. Just in case the 1st offer falls through. This confuses the Lenders negotiator and they stop processing the offer.

5. The offer may contain many contingencies that the Lender does not want to see. There should not be any contingencies to make it a strong offer.

6. Believe it or not some real estate agents will take a listing as a short sale and not even know whether it can even be approved as a short sale based on necessary criteria. So what happens when an offer is submitted to the Lender and it will not even be considered because the seller has the ability to make the payments and nothing has changed that would keep that seller from not making that Home Financing payments. The Seller just wants to sell because the house has lost equity, this is not a reason for the short sale to be approved.

Bottom line make sure if you want to buy a short sale use an experienced agent who has successfully negotiated sold short sales and helped buyers buy short sales. Pilgrim Team is specially trained to help both Sellers and Buyers achieve their home goals. Call Jerry Pilgrim at Professional Realty Associates at 717-757-5955. You will be glad you did!

 

Free Foreclosure and Avoidance Guide

by The Pilgrim Team

  Free Foreclosure Avoidance Guide

I wanted to provide information to you about some startling statistics regarding the latest distressed property trends.

In a recent study by Lender Processing Services (LPS), 6.38 million people were at least 30 days late on their Home Financing payments. If you or someone you care about is feeling the stress of an unaffordable mortgage, please take the time to review the free foreclosure avoidance guide I’ve place on my website: www.YorkShortSales.com

As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), I can navigate a homeowner through a variety of options. I’ve listed some of the most common alternatives to foreclosures that homeowners can take advantage of to get back on the path to financial stability.

 

I would truly appreciate your taking the time to refer any homeowners you know that may need my assistance. I’m sure that they would appreciate it, too! The sooner they contact me, the more time we’ll have to develop a strategy to avoid foreclosure.

 

With gratitude,

Jerry Pilgrim
