“Each week we provide the chart above for our readers as a general summary of the real estate market trends but there is far too much data missing to explain some of the exciting improvements we’re seeing. In the first two weeks of May alone the Average Days On the Market has dropped over 28% compared to 2011 and the Asking to Sold price has improved 4.2% - crazy data coming out of the South Bay (or, as my 3 year old may say “Re-Donkulious!”). Demand is overwhelming right now so we’re changing up this weeks advertisement to include a list of our top ten list of needs for Buyers working with my group.

The Palos Verdes Peninsula population grew rapidly after World War II. In 1946, construction began on several housing tracts in Hollywood Riviera.

The residents of the Valmonte area of Palos Verdes Estates were so irritated and inconvenienced by the large amount of traffic of dump trucks, bull dozers, etc. traveling to the Hollywood Riviera housing tracts that they prevailed upon the City Council of Palos Verdes Estates in 1948 to construct barriers in the middle of Via Alameda, Via Pasqual, and Via Colusa just inside the PVE city limits, and

M U LT I P L E O F F E R S : H OW TO W I N So you finally found the home you have been looking for and you are ready to put an offer in. However you just found out you are not the only buyer trying to buy the same home. How do you get your offer accepted without over paying for the home? The local real estate market has quickly shifted from a “Buyers’ Market” to a “Sellers’ Market” and receiving multiple offers on a single home is a very common situation today. Being thrown into a multiple offer situation can be a stressful experience especially if you really want the home. Agents may ask you to do things that just don’t feel right. Additionally if you move too slow or try to negotiate the price down you are almost guaranteed not to get the home.

ASKING QUESTIONS IS CRITICAL TO FINDING OUT WHAT WILL HELP YOUR OFFER WIN The answers to some of these questions will tell you a lot. 1. Are there any offers on the table yet? 2. How many offers are there? 3. Can you give me any idea what the ranges in offer prices are? (Most listing agents will not say depending on their philosophy of negotiations as well as the legal and ethical responsibilities agents are bound to. However a great buyer’s agent can sometimes uncover valuable clues to help guide you.) 4. What is the ideal timing for the seller for the escrow period or contingency periods?

How aggressive should you be? What are the tricks to winning? The first thing you must determine is how badly you want the home and what you are willing to give up to get it.

REMEMBER THAT PRICE IS NOT ALWAYS EVERYTHING when it comes to getting your offer accepted. A few key points that can help your offer win are:

When offers are reviewed they are typically being reviewed by two different people. One is the seller and the other is the listing agent and they are both looking at different things. The seller is looking at price first and foremost as well as timing. Listing agents are looking at the qualifications of the buyer, the contingencies in the contract, the agent who is representing the buyer, as well as what details they feel important for their client. The key to winning is writing an offer that works for both the seller and the listing agent while additionally leaving enough protection clauses for you as the buyer.

1. Being a strong buyer as it relates to your ability to close the transaction, including but not limited to: a. the ability to pay cash and not need a lender b. offering a very strong down payment and thus limiting loan issues c. providing, upfront, complete documentation of your qualifications including a “pre approval letter from a well-known lender, proof of your down payment, and evidence of your credit worthiness with a copy of your credit scores 2. Whenever possible, try limiting your contingencies. Most contracts are written with 3 major contingencies that include inspection, loan, and appraisal contingencies. Another major one would be if you wrote an offer contingent on selling your home. It is extremely likely in today’s market that a seller will not accept any offer that is contingent on selling your home even if it isn’t a multiple offer situation. Sellers may consider accepting an offer that is contingent on a successful close of escrow on your existing home provided most of the contingencies in that contract have already been lifted. Some savvy buyers feel very comfortable removing the loan contingency upfront if they feel 100% confident they will be approved. Other buyers are fine with removing inspection contingencies if they know they will buy the home no matter what comes up on the inspection. It is not always wise to do this but it certainly helps your chances of winning. 3. Submit a personal, handwritten letter describing your motivation to buy the home. Sometimes sellers are drawn to accept an offer from a buyer they like and feel they can trust to close the transaction. 4. An unconventional approach is to meet the actual seller and express your motivations in person (this happens very rarely). This approach doesn’t work for all sellers as some would rather not meet the party that is negotiating to buy their home.

For more insider tips to getting your offer accepted, email “OFFER TIPS” to EK@ItzSold.com

In all cases there has to be a balance of meeting what the seller wants and protecting yourself. You want to remain aware of the risks associated with giving up some of your rights before you do so, and in some cases it is advisable to consult an attorney for assistance.

TOTAL TRANSPARENC Y With the rates that we offer, there is nothing to hide. We provide our clients honest answers, sound advice and exclusive programs.

Recent Client Testimonial: “We want to thank you for your exceptional service throughout our loan and home purchase transaction. When we first read about your ability to handle VA loans in South Bay Digs magazine, we had a feeling that you were the perfect person for us. Our first conversation with you confirmed our expectations. From there, the entire lending process with you went so smoothly and we benefited greatly from your expertise.You had your finger on the pulse of interest rates and were able to lock us in at the best rate before rates moved up. Under your guidance, everything fell nicely into place. It was the polar opposite to the brutal refinance we did with another local lender and we wish we had known you sooner. “ - Jason and Crystal - Manhattan Beach Welcome to Watermark: Transparency and solutions are the foundation of my success, and I promise both to each and every client. While other lenders focus on feel good services, I focus on the financing. In an industry that hasn’t had a great reputation over the past few years, I take pride in knowing that I’ve gained the trust and respect of my clients. In today’s market the most important thing when obtaining a home loan is the mortgage professional you work with and the resources that they have at their disposal. Whether you have a simple conventional purchase, or a complex Jumbo transaction, feel free to call me at anytime and find out why Watermark is right for you.
