Fast Closes In Slow Markets; Internal Appraisal Panels; We’re VERY Multilingual!

red-roof-sky-hillsFAST CLOSE IN SLOW MARKET, WITH RENT-BACK

One of our most successful buyer’s agents recently got her offer accepted by offering our 14 day close, even though the seller wanted a 30 day escrow.

The agent offered our 14 day close with minimal contingencies and a 16 day rent-back, making her offer “as good as cash.”

This is a great way to take advantage of our fast close in all markets.

IN-HOUSE APPRAISAL PANELS

We hosted a large happy hour last week and we were able to listen to numerous appraisal horror stories from the Realtors in attendance.

The big issues were attitudinal appraisers with horrible bedside manners, and low quality appraisals killing deals.

The common denominator? Huge Appraisal Management Companies that employ thousands of randomly picked appraisers who can’t be held accountable.

The ‘problem appraisals’ involved either mortgage brokers or large mortgage banks, both of which are forced to use huge Appraisal Management Companies.

Poor appraisal quality is why JVM left the broker channel. We could not risk any more bad appraisals.

We now have a full-time Appraisal Manager and our own internal pool of hand-picked, local appraisers

Our Realtor partners love our appraisal process now, and it has become one of our strongest value propositions.

WE’RE MULTILINGUAL

As a reminder, we speak fluent Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, Romanian, Korean and Mandarin.
