"Why I went with The Caren Team vs. OfferPad/OpenDoor" - One Seller's Experience in her own words...

"I struggled with the decision as to go with one of the “quick sale” companies like OfferPad and OpenDoor verses a Realtor.  After talking to all 3 (OfferPad & OpenDoor first, and then Matt Caren of The Caren Team last), this is how I made my decision and it was hands down the perfect decision for me.  My home sold for 20K more than OfferPad and OpenDoor offered me.

The Pro’s that are dangled in front of your face like shiny diamonds with OpenDoor & OfferPad, in their high-pressure sales pitch are as follows:

Pros

When it comes to buying a home, everyone wants a good deal and no one wants to feel like they’re overpaying.  However, we find that many buyers tend to focus on the list price of the home too often when trying to determine what price to offer that they believe will result in them getting a “good deal” on the home.  For some, simply getting a home for $10,000, $20,000, $30,000 or more off of the list price would automatically constitute a good deal, but what if the list price was already $50,000 more than the home was worth in the first place?  This may sound like an extreme example, but we’re using it to help buyers understand that a list price, in most cases isn’t what the home is worth, in fact it’s typically at least $5,000-$10,000 more than the homes

For many buyers who know exactly what they want in their new home, but aren't having any luck finding the features and or location they are looking for, new build homes can be a great solution.  With new build communities almost always having a sales office to walk into and begin the process at, it would seem that having a real estate agent represent you in the process would be unnecessary or even counterproductive to getting a good price on your home.  Because of these common beliefs, we wanted to take the time to go over some things you may not have thought about or known if you've ever considered buying a new home from a builder.

Probably the number one misconception about bringing an agent with you to a new build center is that you will have to pay

If you've ever contacted a real estate agent who at some point asked you to sign an exclusive employment agreement, also known as a Buyer Broker Agreement with them and you were apprehensive about it or just told that agent "no", then the following paragraphs may be of interest to you.

When we ask a buyer to sign one of these agreements and they seem hesitant, it's usually the result of one of a few reasons.  First, and probably most commonly is the reason that the buyer doesn't want to make a commitment to that agent or any agent simply because it makes that particular buyer feel uncomfortable.  Commitment to a lot of things (and people) in life can be difficult so we understand this hesitation.  It's for this reason as well that we let buyers know

What makes real estate such a great investment?  In one word, leverage.  The opportunity for anyone to purchase an asset worth six figures for as little as $0 cannot be found in any other form of investment that we're aware of.  You don't need past experience buying or selling real estate or a business plan to get pre-approved for financing to purchase your first, second or 10th home.  All you need is decent credit, a reliable income and minimal debts relative to your income.  For anyone who is lacking in any of those areas, there's always the possibility of having a co-signer on your loan.

What are the financial benefits of purchasing and owning your own home?  Let's say you were to purchase a $200,000 home and own it for 10 years and the real estate

Whether you’re just beginning your search or you’ve been looking online for a while, there is always one major step you will want to take prior to going out and actually viewing properties in person.  For most buyers, using a mortgage to finance a portion or the entire cost of your new home will be necessary.  If you are among this group of buyers, your first step in the home buying process should be getting pre-qualified for your mortgage as soon as possible. 

We find that many buyers believe that waiting until they can get their credit score up a few more points, or they can save up a few more dollars toward their down payment, or some other goal they have will be best to accomplish first.  While this would seem like it makes sense to do before
