According to HGTV, here are some tips to enhance your curb appeal this fall, and get your house sold.
Being a good real estate agent means you take on a variety of roles. You are a salesperson, a buyer’s advocate, a negotiator, a business manager, a consultant, and a community expert to name a few.
What are some good traits a real estate agent should possess?
Creativity– to help market a home successfully and find solutions for problems that may turn up during the transaction.
Self-motivation– You are your own boss. You have the potential to do as much business as you’d like. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication but your potential is limitless.
Honesty is a key part of being a real estate agent. You are required to disclose what you know about the property to your clients. Honesty is always the best policy.
Having an interest in real estate is a big plus. If you love real estate and the whole architecture of homes, you will never feel it’s a job if you love every aspect of it.
A caring attitude is a big part of being a real estate agent. This is a big step in your client’s life filled with anxiety and indecision. Having a warm, caring personality will help your clients through their transaction with less worry.
Having attention to detail is a great trait to have. There are many minute parts to a real estate transaction and you have to be thorough in your job and dot every i and cross every t.
Learning is a big part of being a great real estate agent. Keeping up with tech trends to help your clients navigate the market more smoothly is important as well as learning about the neighborhoods and schools of the communities you are serving. Keeping up to date with new laws and trends is important too.

Are you ready to become a real estate agent? Here are some important terms you will need to know.
Buyer’s agent and Listing Agent: A buyer’s agent represents the buyer in a transaction and the listing agent represents the seller. They may also be called a seller’s agent.
Fixed rate vs. adjustable rate mortgage: A fixed rate mortgage has a rate that doesn’t change for the life of the loan, common in a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. An adjustable rate mortgage varies over the life of the loan.
Pre-approval letter: A pre-approval letter is given to a buyer by their lender with an estimate of how much they are willing to loan the buyer. It is necessary to put an offer in on a house.
Home Inspection: A Home inspection is usually scheduled after an offer is accepted on a home. A home inspector is hired by the buyer to thoroughly inspect the house top to bottom and inform the buyer of any major issues or defects and long term problems. The cost can be between $500-800 dollars.
Appraisal: The lender will order an appraisal of the property prior to closing. A licensed appraiser will come out to the house and estimate the house’s value as compared to other comparable homes in the area.
Offers and Purchase and Sale contracts: A real estate agent will fill out an offer for the buyer with the price they are willing to pay for the home and any contingencies they are asking the seller to make. The seller will either accept the offer or offer a counter-offer to the buyer until a price is agreed upon. If the offer is accepted, a purchase and sale will be drawn up by the real estate agent or the seller’s attorney. It is always a good idea to have an attorney look over the purchase and sale on both the buyer and seller end before it is signed. Once signed, a deposit is given to the seller’s agent to be put in an escrow account. This contract is legally binding.
Closing Costs: These are the expenses that the buyer and seller will be responsible for at closing time. These include attorney fees, recording fees, tax stamps, and property tax to name a few.
These are just some of the terms you can expect to see on your real estate exam and in your day to day dealings as a real estate agent.

With all the access to online services for buying or selling a home, many buyers and sellers may feel they don’t need a real estate agent. This can be a bad idea.
Real estate agents know the market and the area. They can help you find the perfect home that meets your criteria without a long search. They can help narrow down your search and have access to other agents to help get you in to see your potential home quicker without you having to play phone tag with the agent.
If you are selling your home, you will have to field calls yourself and make appointments. Buyers may feel intimidated to view the home with the sellers present.
Real estate agents are your community experts. They can help with information on the neighborhood and the school systems you may be moving into.
Real estate agents are skilled negotiators. They are the go-between for the buyers and sellers and can help smooth ruffled feathers. They can help you buy or sell a home at the right price without bad feelings between the buyers and sellers that can squash a deal.
Buying or selling a home involves contracts and legal jargon. Real estate agents can help you navigate this journey and connect you with the proper attorney to advise you on all the legal aspects of the transaction.
While there are costs involved in using a real estate agent, the peace of mind and expertise you can expect from your agent is well worth the money.
