Sellers & Short Sales!

Short Sales are Never the Ideal option for the Seller to sell their home, however, it does happen. In the instance of the Seller I was attempting to work with, the company that was going to handle the short sale reached out to him and to get them off of the phone, he told her he would call the next morning at 11 am. Of course, that didn’t happen. I have learned you have to approach Short Sales as a team. Since I am not an attorney, we each do our job in getting the Short Sale completed to the bank’s requirements: 1) The attorney speaks to the Bank 2) the Realtor lists the property.

Firing Your Seller!

Sadly, I had to fire my Seller. However, like I state in my podcast, just like in Life – in Business you teach people how to treat you and what happened Is unacceptable.

I also gave a Shout out to some agents and Admins in my office who donated to the Eastern Service Workers through me as I do my best to think of others as well:

Sara Champion – Admin., Flamur Rama – Agent, Kenkiesha Granger – Agent, Maria Newman – Agent. You can find them on Facebook. Check them out and give them the opportunity to assist you as well.

Happy Veteran’s Day

IMG220Happy Veteran’s Day to ALL who have Served. I write this post in memory of my Uncle Harold Hardy. He ascended February 21, 2014 ten years after the love of his life, My Aunt Ryoko (lovingly referred to as Aunt Yoko). They were never blessed with children of their own and of course, had mega-love for the children of others. My Uncle Served as a Cook, always providing love in the kitchen to the many Soldiers that he fed. He continued that love when he came home because he was always cooking huge meals in big pots even when it was only him and Aunt Yoko. He loved to BBQ and show off all of the cooking gadgets he bought off QVC. Lol.

Happy Veteran’s Day to Uncle Harold Hardy and All of the Those Who have Served or are Actively Serving.

You’re Under Contract…Will you get to Closing?

Don’t count that check until it is in Your Hands. download (14)

Don’t think for a moment that just because a property is Under Contract you have it on lock. So many things can go wrong between that moment and the Closing Table.

My under contract is a living example of this scenario. Here it goes, the inspection was scheduled for today and the home inspection company gets there and there’s no lock box on the door so the home inspection company cannot gain access. Huh? Yep, I have called my Seller and cannot get a response. What’s a Realtor to do?

Listen to my podcast, https://anchor.fm/simone-hardy/episodes/Youre-Under-Contract—-Will-you-make-it-to-the-Closing-Table-e2hs42.

I will keep you posted.

Who’s Building in Atlantic County, NJ!

I was riding around the general area where I live the other day to see who is building what in Atlantic County, New Jersey.

In Northfield behind Ashley Furniture Cresson Avenue, Cresson Hill is being developed dubbed South Jersey’s Newest Rental Community. Cresson Hill is offering 1 and 2 bedroom units with one bathroom and 2 baths for the two bedroom units. You will have to contact them for pricing. Cresson Hill is offering five different models to choose from – Aster, Burton, Cherrywood, Evergreen & Fabian.

Check out their website: https://cressonhill.com/

Down Delilah Road, diagonally across from Wawa, there is new construction with no name yet. However, I recall attempting to acquire the listing for the home that was on that property. The owner was looking for a development deal that didn’t go through. Well, it looks like the owner got their wish as ground is breaking as I write this, IMG_20181029_120056

And Cresson Hill

Are the Home Inspections in Your State Regulated?

download (13)In New Jersey they are. Home Inspectors are required to be licensed and bonded. To be honest, I was surprised to find any States that aren’t regulated. A home is a huge emotional investment, not to mention the monetary factor.

When I purchased my home, I used a local inspector who was affiliated with our office at the time.

Check out my podcast to hear which States are not regulated,
