Real estate practices, customs and laws can vary significantly from state to state. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, it’s in your best interest to arm yourself with the most comprehensive, market-specific information available. Albuquerque Realtor® Linda DeVlieg agrees that “knowledge is power” for her real estate clients. That is what prompted her and Summit County Realtor® Ken Deshaies to collaborate on an informative new book titled “Get the Best Deal When Selling Your Home, Albuquerque, New Mexico Edition.” “For most people, their home is the largest single investment they will make in their lives,” Linda says. Also covered are important issues ranging from the role of the Internet in today’s tech-savvy market, to the Multiple Listing Service, Property Valuation, Market Conditions, Preparing Your Home For Sale, Screening Prospective Buyers, the Closing—Table, and finally, Preparing for Uncle Sam. The next section of the book speaks to prospective buyers. While the Internet provides a myriad of options for buyers to view potential homes, DeVlieg and Deshaies both agree that a Realtor® is your best bet when purchasing a home. An experienced “buyer representative” can save a prospective buyer countless hours of legwork by carefully screening homes according to the buyer’s search criteria. Realtors®, especially seasoned brokers, are skilled negotiators who will represent your individual needs, and negotiate the best deal possible. Also included in this section are details describing the entire home purchase process as well as mortgage options and credit issues. Get the Best Deal When Selling Your Home is a very easy read that plainly describes the ideal client/ Realtor® relationship and provides real examples of the writers’ experiences in their combined 30-plus years in the industry. Former clients open each chapter with a brief story related to the topic that is addressed in that chapter, and describe first-hand an experience they had when buying or selling their home. The book’s closing pages include an appendix with a glossary of terms and a valuable moving checklist. Industry professionals, home buyers and sellers alike, are praising the book for its no-nonsense readability, and favorably compare the experiences written about in “Get the Best Deal When Selling Your Home,” with their own.
