Understand what you are signing

Keep it simple!

"So, one of my agents comes to me to me the other day and asked me to review a contract that she got on one of her listings and she said, "I don't understand this appraisal provision. Can you read it and see if you can make heads or tales of it?" And I read it and I couldn't understand it either. It was very long and convoluted and I said, "No, I don't understand that. Why don't you go ask the other agent what they meant or what they were intending to accomplish with that provision." So she calls the other agent and ask her, "hey, what are you trying to do here?" and the agent was like, "I don't understand what it means. My managing broker just told me to put it in there." So, we gotta understand the provisions that we're putting into contracts. There's tendency of realtors to write these long convoluted provisions. My litmus test is like a third grade level. It's gotta be super simple. Everybody needs to understand what the provision is trying to accomplish. Don't sign anything you don't understand. Just a thought for you."

NoCo Real Estate Market Update

Wednesday, April 13th, 2022

The big news this month has been how fast mortgage interest rates have climbed. We are near 5% for a 30 year fixed. Depending on their financing and price point, this has increased the cost of ownership for a typical buyer in NoCo by about $500-$1,000 per month.  Obviously this is a huge increase and everyone is bracing for the impact this will have on the housing market. But so far, we have been shocked at how un-noticeable the impact has been. Over the last month, neither myself or anyone on our team of 12 full time realtors, have reported any perceivable change in the market despite having put buyers into homes at these higher rates for weeks now. Our colleagues across the city seem to agree: There seems to be no noticeable effect on the level of competion for each listing, the number of offers each listing receives, or how high folks are paying over the list price. Despite massive increases in the cost of borrowing, it feels like the same wildly competitive market that we’ve grown accustomed to over the last 5 years.
