Can I Accept Another if I've Already Accepted a Contingent One?

"We want to sell fast but all we're getting is contingent offers? How does that work and do I have to accept them?"Can I Accept Another if I've Already Accepted a Contingent One?

This is a common occurrence, especially in buyer's markets. A contingent offer is typically referring to an offer a buyer has submitted that states they will buy the house once their own house sells first. Many buyers can't manage two mortgage payments so they must sell one to buy another. The offer may be great in the way of terms and price but the term contingent can make people wince, and it really shouldn't. Here's what's really going on.

A contingent offer simply states that the buyer is willing to buy your house once their's sells so they can use the money as a down payment on the new house. Your house can't close until their house does. While this may sound like locking the seller down, it really isn't that big of a deal. The buyers can either negotiate for a couple of different scenarios; they have already listed the property and it's currently on the market, or they promise to list within a certain amount of time, usually 3 days after mutual acceptance. The original seller can still keep the listing on the market under the classification of "contingent" and still market the property to other potential buyers. There may be stipulations on how aggressively the homeowner and agent can market, but regardless, it can usually stay on the market

If the seller receives another offer that is better than the first, non-contingent, the rules in the contingency typically state that the buyer has 3 days to either remove the contingency and go ahead with the purchase or withdraw their offer. Basically, the seller still has all the cards. They can keep the home on the market in case a better offer comes in and if not, the seller can take the contingent offer all the way through. There is also wording in the contract about the buyer's home getting an offer. They usually cannot accept a contingent offer since there would be too much riding on one contract. The buyer must accept a non-contingent offer, allowing the original seller a little more freedom in closing rather than waiting for deal after deal to close before they can finally walk away.

So a contingent offer is not bad and with the right terms could be a favorable option, especially if there haven't been any other bites on the house so far. Don't negate a contingent offer right away. It may be your best option!

Scheduling the Closing - What is it and When is it?

Finally. You found your dream house and your Realtor® is writing up the offer. Your next hope for this, fairytale scenario is that you can move in the morning of the 30th of next month since that's when your lease expires so that you don't have to pay extra rent! Yay! However, most people are not lucky enough to live in this dream world.Scheduling the Closing - What is it and When is it?

Closing or Close of Escrow is the day that the house you've just bought actually becomes yours. On this day all the final paperwork is signed and usually the day that all the money or funding changes hands. You can often get your keys that same day too, but not always.

A problem you may run into is that things don't always go exactly as planned especially near the end of the month. Why? It's due to a ton of other people who are also hoping to close the same time you are. The result? The end of the month crunch or race for the finish line...it makes for a lot of traffic in closing.

Related: What's the best way to get your offer accepted?

It is simply not possible for mortgage lenders, title companies and other services to handle the high volume of closings that tend to get scheduled for the last few days of the month. A high volume of closings makes it so that documents don't show up and closing gets delayed. OR, the financing may get delayed. When this happens, upset and disappointed buyers are the result.

However, there's hope. The solution is to schedule your closing near the middle of the week and during the middle of the month. Be realistic and allow ample time, usually 30 days, for the escrow period. It's true that you may end up paying a few more days of rent, but the frustration you save your self will be well worth it.

As with all my clients, we try to be very strategic as to when to schedule the closing. We want the most possible benefit for our clients as well as convenient for all parties. This is why we schedule sometimes sooner or later than expected.

How to Choose a Property Manager for Your Miami Investment

We have lots of investors and property owners throughout Miami and Miami Beach, many of which either don’t live here full time or reside in the state at all. It can be difficult to decide who will manage your property in your absence but here are some things to consider when choosing a property management service in Miami.

Questions to ask:How to Choose a Property Manager for Your Miami Investment

  • What are my responsibilities as the property owner and what are your responsibilities as the property manager?
  • How much does it cost to have the property managed and maintained?
  • Is there an initial cost for tenant placement as well as ongoing monthly management fees?
  • What expenses are tax-deductible?
  • In case of damage or repairs, do you have a list of resources that you refer to and may I see it?
  • How long have you been a property manager?
  • How many properties do you currently manage and you have assistance?

You want to make sure you use a local property manager that is familiar not only with the area and the neighborhood but local resources and referrals as well. You certainly wouldn’t want your property manager calling 10 different places to find the right plumber, charging you for their time.

You will also want to property manager with experience. Too many properties to manage without enough staff could mean that your property will get neglected or that your tenants will not receive service in a timely manner. Yes, it’s important for property managers to have a good book of business each month but too many properties without assistance or help could mean that your property and your tenant will be neglected. This could cause your tenant to be frustrated and move out, leaving you to find a new renter.

Customer service is also extremely important, not just to you but to your tenant as well. Yes, there are those renters that can become a nightmare but many renters are extremely upstanding people that deserve just as much customer service as you do. Make sure your property manager is courteous, communicative, and responsive timely manner, not just to you but to your tenants as well.

Talk to references. Ask about the property managers book of business and if you can contact current property owners. This is a great way to learn more about your property managers.

Understand exactly how fees and payments will be handled. Most property managers will collect rent on their own, and then deposit the leftover amount after their commission each month into your personal account. Make sure you get all financial agreements in writing and that everyone is on the same page.

How to Move or Pack Delicate or Tricky Items

That funky Tiffany lampshade, a unique mirror, the handblown glass the sculpture you got for your anniversary, all of these unique things are tricky to pack and carefully store and the last thing you want is to risk breaking it during your relocation. Here are some moving and packing hacks for those tricky or delicate items when it comes to relocating.

Power tools.How to Move or Pack Delicate or Tricky Items

First, remove any detachable parts from the tools and use rags or bubblewrap to protect sharp edges. Pack tools securely in a tool caddy or strong box and add extra packing like a newspaper or plastic bags around the tools to stop them from sliding and bumping into each other.

Your television.

Most televisions are pretty large these days and need careful handling. If you can, packet back in the original box and packing but if you don't, like most of us, wrap your monitor and pedestal carefully in a sheet or thick blanket and secure with duct tape or packing tape.

Lamps

Lampshades are best transported in a box and if possible, nest several shades together so that it can protect each other. Wrap with paper towels or plain paper but never newspaper as the print could come off on the shades.

Aquariums.

Place the tank on top of the strong box that's larger than the tank and line the base with bubblewrap. Aquariums are pretty heavy even without water so place layers of cardboard on top of the tank and add more packing to the box until it's full. Make sure you put fragile on the box.

Lawnmowers.

Remove all oil and gas from the mower before packing to avoid leaks and spills. Clean the mower, and wipe off all the grass to avoid the spread of quarantined plants and grasses.

Odd shaped items.

Wrap these items in bubble wrap or paper and secure it well with tape. Pack one or two items that are fragile in with other items for cushioning such as blankets, towels, and clothing. Pack fragile glass items in the center of a box filled with soft items.

If you're concerned about movers damaging your precious items during packing and relocation, simply pack them yourself to ensure that you have a good cushion.

Is a Bidding War on Real Estate a Good Thing for the Seller?

Bidding wars occur when there is a low supply of property listings combined with high demand from buyers. In today's hot markets across the country, bidding wars have become very common. Pricing your home competitively, or just slightly below market value or the closest competition, can easily invite a bidding war. While they can drive up the price, they are a little bit risky.Is a Bidding War on Real Estate a Good Thing for the Seller?

If the final sales price ends up higher than the homes appraised value, it could cause financing problems for the buyer. If the buyer applies for financing, the home must be appraised for what the lender is willing to loan on the property. If the home doesn't appraise for the offer amount, the deal could fall apart. There are ways to still sell at the inflated price, but the buyer will usually have to bring more money to the table and then there's the fact that the buyer knows of the property isn't worth what they are paying for it.

If the deal falls through, it could jeopardize other offers. Buyers may wonder if there's something wrong with the house that resulted in the previous deal falling through. While it's something as simple as a bidding war, it may deter other buyers from even making an offer. The last thing you want is for your bidding war strategy to backfire.

In Miami, the difference between a seller's market and a buyers market literally changes from neighborhood to neighborhood. In higher-end neighborhoods, properties may not sell as quickly so bidding wars are not as common. In average or median home price neighborhoods, bidding wars are as hot as ever. So what should sellers do?

While bidding wars can be a good thing for sellers, undergoing one doesn't mean that there necessarily the end-all to sell the house. Sometimes, the seller is the one that becomes the casualty so it's important to understand several factors when it comes to getting multiple offers.

Don't automatically go for the highest offer.

It can be easy to want to go for the highest offer right away but the strongest offer is not necessarily determined by price. Price is important, but terms are important as well. You might have a buyer that is offering a high price without a financing contingency, letter of preapproval, or ridiculous terms, which, it doesn't matter what the prices, the terms are unfavorable. Make sure you understand all the details of an offer, not just the price.

Keep your emotions at bay.

Getting too personal can cause you to make errors in overpricing the home in the first place. Sure, you love your home, and you can't imagine why someone would love it as well, but try to keep your emotions out of the situation. Some homebuyers are getting emotional as well by writing letters to sellers enclosing photos of their family and explaining why they would be the perfect people to live in the home. While that might sound endearing, it may not be ideal to accept those offers. Sellers need to stay objective and judge each offer on merit only.

Don't let greed get in the way.

This can be one of the biggest mistakes sellers make. If you get bids over your asking price you may be tempted to counter offer for even more. I mean, if more people want the home, maybe the ones that really wanted will pay even more. But that's just getting greedy. Remember, the goal is to sell the house, not to fight for the highest price when you are already getting over asking price for the property.

The key is to go over every detail of an offer with your real estate agent. Because we understand the market we can help you make a wise decision having all of the information available to you.

5 Things to Know Before Making an Offer on a New Home

Buying a brand-new home is exciting and a little overwhelming because you want to do it right and not have any regrets down the line. If you're considering buying a new home check out these five things to know before making that offer.

Affordability5 Things to Know Before Making an Offer on a New Home

You can find out in an instant what rates are and the terms to the home loan before making an offer. Use rate tools and talk to lenders so that you can make an informed decision about the right price and the right mortgage for your needs. Don't go into negotiations with a homeowner without knowing your numbers.

Customizations

Make sure you love the home exactly as you are getting it. Consider all the upgrades now so that you don't pay more later. A lot of times builders will throw in some customizations or upgrades, so make sure you know all of the details and upgrades before finalizing the deal.

Schools

A new home might sound great but if it's in a school district that's less than desirable, you may have issues with variances or out of district schools. Schools are an issue for you, make sure that you approve the district or the zone before finalizing the offer.

Amenities

If you're moving somewhere completely new you'll need to adjust your daily routine. Are you close to where you'll buy groceries or the kind of services that are available nearby? What about coffee shops, local parks, and commute routes? Make sure the new home is where you want it to be.

Safety

Safety and comfortability is key to finding a new home, whether it's new construction or a resell property. There are a lot of crime and safety resources out there to discover if this is a safe neighborhood or community.

Before making an offer on any type of home, double checking your surroundings and the customizations of your home will put you in a better spot overall. Plus, you're less likely to regret your decision.

7 Must-Haves for Aging in Place

There's something comforting and secure about enjoying where you live for decades, longing to your retirement years. But, if you're planning on retiring where you are, you may want to change a few things at home rather than looking for a new place to live. A lot of baby boomers are actually staying in place, primarily due to kids and grandkids coming home or staying a while. But, maybe you just love your home or location, neighbors, or the convenience of where you are. If that's the case, you may want to stay in your home for the next couple of decades and if so, here are some great must-haves to consider buying.7 Must-Haves for Aging in Place

Change out your doorknobs to levers. This simple change can make it easier to operate door hardware for anyone suffering from arthritis or has issues with their joints.

Changing out hard flooring to soft carpet. This not only feels better on your feet and your joints, but could soften a fall as well.

Make adjustments to bathrooms. Grab bars, comfort height toilets, and soft drugs can really make a huge difference in the bathroom. Many of these new designs can be decorative as well as useful. You don't need to look like a nursing home to make your bathroom more convenient.

Convenient telephones. Having touchtone telephones with large buttons, speakers, or hands-free capability, as well as a text capability for those who are deaf or hard of hearing, might be a great option.

Automatic shut off safety devices for kitchen appliances. This also might be a good thing to consider looking into. If you are out and about and can't remember if you turned off the stove or left the dishwasher running, it might be a good idea to look into options that allow for automatic shut off safety devices.

Ramps for entryways. Installing a ramp or rail bars for stairs might be a good idea as well as installing a sturdier railing along all staircases. Mobility aids might also be a good option such as a walker, motorized scooter, or just simply a cane.

Step in or walk in bathtub/shower. Many bathtubs and showers can be converted fairly easy these days. You might also consider a transfer bench for a bathtub or shower and a hand-held shower head or grab bars in the shower.

Whether you're looking to modify your existing home to enjoy it for years to come or home that may already have all of these, this is a good list of things that you may not consider now but in 10 years will be a joy to have.

Don't Make These Mistakes When Looking for a Condo

Don't Make These Mistakes When Looking for a Condo

Condominium buying is a little bit different than buying a single-family home. You obviously have shared space with other condo owners or renters and you usually have to fall within certain guidelines, bylaws, and rules, so your little bit more restricted, but, on the other hand, you have a lot less maintenance than a single-family house. You won't have to worry about the roof or the siding, landscaping or maintaining amenities, but there's always a trade-off. Most condominiums will have amenities and special assessments as well as homeowner association fees and dues you'll need to pay for. When looking for a condo keep these items in mine and avoid the mistakes by understanding all of the rules ahead of time.

#1. Check out the location, not just the unit.

Some condominiums look great on paper or on the online listing, but when you actually get there you realize this is the best-looking building in the neighborhood. Everything else needs a lot of TLC. Do you want to live next to broken down buildings that need a lot of repairs? This could bring down your property values. On the other hand, do a little bit of research on future development. If you know that this is an up-and-coming neighborhood, this building could be just the start to a new and vitalize community. Within 10 years, your property values could skyrocket.

#2. Understand all the fees involved.

Buying a house is different than buying a condo. There are extra taxes, fees, application costs, homeowner association dues, and potentially many other costs not associated with a single-family house. Talk to your lender about all fees involved. A $2000 mortgage could easily be $3000 once you add in all the additional fees, insurance, and taxes.

#3. Do the amenities fit your lifestyle?

Are you paying $1000 a month for amenities you'll never use? This could be worth it if everything else makes sense. Do you love the view, the unit, the location? These things may overpower the extra fees it takes to maintain the amenities but weigh the costs. If the amenities provide things you'll use all of the time, those extra fees and costs may be well worth it to you. However, if you're paying for a dog park services, car washing amenities, and things you'll never use, you might want to search for a unit that better fits your lifestyle.

#4. Do the rules and regulations work for you?

All buildings have what's called CC & R's or covenants, conditions, and restrictions. These bylaws regulate the rules that all condo owners and tenants must abide by. If there's something in these rules you don't agree with, you can either talk to the Association about it or choose a different unit. You'll get a copy of these before finalizing the transaction, so make sure you read through them or have a real estate attorney do so for you.

Related: Who should attend your condo inspection?

#5. Understand who lives there.

This is in no way to be discriminatory against anyone but, if you are retired and you're looking for a quieter building, a development with a lot of millennial's are college-age students may not work for your lifestyle. On the flipside, if you're looking for a high activity building, you probably are not looking for an adult only, 55 and over property either. Find a building that works for your lifestyle with folks of similar habits and behaviors.

These are just some basics that everyone looking for a condo should know. You don't want to choose the wrong property only to be stuck with it for several years before you can afford to sell it. Doing your research and homework ahead of time will help you choose the right condo in the right building for your needs, daily lifestyle, and budget.
