Buyer's Myths
Seller's Myths


Myth #1
It doesn't matter which REALTOR® you choose to work with to buy a home.

Truth
It is critically important which REALTOR® you select to help you find your dream home!!

Buying a home is a complicated business. Mistakes could literally cost you thousands of dollars or the missed opportunity of owning the home of your dreams. As a Buyer, you are always in competition with all of the other buyers who are looking to buy your dream home. There is a vast difference in the level of expertise and quality of service provided by Realtors. Give yourself the advantage of working with the Very Best! . . Work with The Sandi Pressley Team and get these Value-Added Services that will make a big difference for you!

They are not taken out of focus like most other Realtors who are listing properties, making brochures, following escrows and, in their spare time, trying to show homes to buyers. 100% of our Buyer Specialists' time is spent on finding your dream home. The Sandi Pressley Team has other Specialists who handle all of the other activities and business details involved in real estate.

Too busy? No ... but very busy getting our buyers the homes of their dreams and at good market value with terms most favorable to them.

Myth #3 
It doesn't matter which REALTOR® I work with to buy a home. They all have access to the same information.

Truth
Yes, it matters! ... and, it makes a HUGE difference!

Having access to information and knowing what it means are two different things. Buying a home involves a careful, knowledgeable analysis of the available homes on the market as well as an integral knowledge of financing, contracts, inspections, negotiations and a hundred other things, each vitally important to a successful purchase. Mistakes in any area could cost you thousands of dollars and turn your dream home into a nightmare.

The Sandi Pressley Team has a proven track record of success over many years in helping buyers move into their dream homes. Buying a home is too important to work with anyone less than the very best ... The Sandi Pressley Team.

Myth #4 
It doesn't really matter if I get prequalified or pre approved for a loan. I can do that when I find the home I want to buy.

Truth
It really does matter. Not having your financing at least started up front could cost you money and maybe the home of your dreams.

Sellers generally do not want to take the risk of accepting an offer from an unqualified buyer. They've all heard the horror stories of someone who accepted an offer from someone who couldn't get a mortgage loan and had their home tied up and off the market for months. If they do accept the questionable offer, they usually insist that the buyer pay the highest possible price. Having an offer from a prequalified or, better yet, pre approved buyer gives the sellers a certain confidence that the sale will go through allowing them to finalize their plans and move ahead. This confidence factor is worth money to the sellers in the form of a reduced sale price.

The Buyer Specialists at The Sandi Pressley Team are experts at financing and can assist you in getting your finances in order so that you are in the best buying position possible, negotiating from a position of strength instead of uncertainty.
