Finding Covina Homes For Sale
There are plenty of beautiful homes in the city of Covina and it’s easy to get lost looking at real estate online. Before you get carried away make sure you have calculated how much home you can afford. If you’re serious about buying, then talking to a loan officer may be your best first step. A loan officer will help you understand your options and can even get you prequalified for a loan which is a standard process when buying. As soon as you know your price range you can begin confidently searching Covina homes for sale. Odds are the properties you’ve searched and found online will not be the home you purchase. That’s okay. We encourage all our clients to search for homes online and to save the properties they like best. When you begin working with a real estate agent these saved homes will be very important in deciding what you’re looking for. We even built an app to assist you and your agent with this process. Okay, this has been enough reading on the subject, it’s time to start searching for that perfect home!

The Covina Home Buying Process
Ready to start touring homes and make serious offers? That’s fantastic! The first thing you’ll want to do is talk with a loan officer like we mentioned in the beginning. Sellers will take you more seriously if you are pre-approved for a loan. Essentially it is proof that you can afford the house and it will help narrow down your house hunting options. Next, you will need to start working with an experienced realtor in the local real estate market. Be sure to show them all the properties you’ve saved online. This will help you when deciding on the homes you actually want to consider because touring homes is very time consuming. In fact, it will likely take a couple days and most real estate agents will not recommend viewing more than six homes in one day. Once you’ve visited your top picks you and your agent will discuss an offer to present the seller and await a response. If your offer is accepted you and the seller will complete each of the steps outlined in the agreed upon offer. Often this includes any repairs or inspections that need to be done and paid for as stated in the agreement. The process will differ case by case, but your agent will be trained to handle all situations and they are there to guide you in the decision making process.

Covina Home Selling Process
Are you looking to change your housing situation? If yes, you’ve come to the right place. Selling your home can be stressful but with the right team it shouldn’t be. The first step you should do as a homeowner looking to sell is research active and recently closed listings in your neighborhood. One of the most common problems sellers face is unrealistic expectations in pricing. Doing this quick research can give you a rough range of possible sale prices. Note that we said ‘possible’ prices. Next, you should think ‘What does this home have that mine does not?’ and ‘What doesn’t this home have?’. This simple search on our website or app will help set correct expectations when you start working with a real estate agent, which is your next step. A local realtor will have the knowledge to sell your home with proper marketing and pricing strategies. An excellent agent is someone who is trained to follow market conditions and best marketing practices like home staging and aerial photography. Therefore, we recommend you ask your agent to explain their strategy before you start working with them. After your home is listed you will start to receive offers. If you’re working with an agent, and you probably should be, then they will notify you of every offer received and together you will plan how to respond. Do not be discouraged by low ball offers early in the listing process. Alright, we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves. It’s time to begin your search for homes online. We just ask that you remember us when it comes time to search for a real estate agent.
Hiring the Right Real Estate Agent
If you found this page there’s a good chance you simply searched “Covina real estate agents” in Google and this is where you found yourself. That’s not a bad start, but let’s make sure you do your due diligence when hiring the person responsible for selling your house. First, why do you need a realtor? Most people have full time jobs, and if you’re like most people you don’t have time to learn all the nuances associated with buying or selling California real estate. This includes laws, regulations, and spending time with potential buyers when they are most available. In fact, finding potential buyers and negotiating the terms is their most important role. That is why real estate agents exist, but how do you find the right agent for you? If you’re selling your home in Covina then you need someone who specializes in the city. This does not mean they simply live in the city, but have actually sold homes in the city. A track record of success is a good metric to narrow down your choice of realtor. Online reviews are a great tool to verify who the top selling agents are in your city. If you’re talking to an agent with poor online reviews or who didn’t even show up when you made this Google search you may want to reconsider. Think about it, if your agent can’t get themselves listed in search results effectively, then their marketing techniques probably aren’t the best in today’s market. Some additional methods for locating the right realtor include open house signs in your neighborhood and asking local friends for referrals. Make a list of potential agents and narrow it down to the top three. We recommend three because most sellers simply choose the first realtor they meet without exploring their options. Call or meet each of them to discuss your situation and goals. After each interview you should see who the best fit is to sell your home in Covina.
