As if real estate needed more hurdles, a tough credit market has made a monster of the already lengthy and sometimes nerve wracking financing subject. On a good day, the process can delay or derail a deal, to the agony of the seller, the buyer and their agents.
While solid traditional and alternative financing options remain, savvy agents can widen their marketing scope to skip the financing concern altogether.
Skip the Financing Hurdle
To go from 'lead to sold' on the fast track, market your listing where buyers are ready and looking, financing and cash already in hand.
Australians and others around the world have figured that to maximize asset value and save valuable time and resources, they must cut to the chase by focusing their marketing on buyers who are ready to execute.
The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) forecasts that within four years, one in every five properties in the United States will be sold at auction. Last year in the U.S., over 58 billion dollars of real property exchanged hands at auction, with 52 percent being non-distressed, luxury homes and estates. Many of those are multi-million dollar deals that closed in as little as 30 days. These numbers can skyrocket as new, Web-based platforms enable mass participation by REALTORS® and consumers alike.
