As if buying a home isn’t stressful enough....we’ll add to it planning and scheduling movers, turning on utilities, changing mailbox keys, change of address forms, mail forwarding, and keeping up with current bills so they don't get lost in the wonderful world of the post office.
I have bought and sold several homes and helped over 500 families get their keys. Being able to give them a closing date or a day that they will get keys in hand is getting more and more difficult. Buyer question: "When can I move in?" Realtor answer: "When I give you the keys?" What!?! What are you supposed to do with that answer? Then you add the lovely government bureaucracy of the CFPB that wants to make things easier and better for the "consumer" but now the ability to try and at least come close to giving you a move in date has gotten worse. By the way, did I mention to you that the awesome down payment assistance program you are using can delay things too? You thought the Cox internet provider window of 12pm - 6pm was bad.....what about this: "Well Mr. Buyer we are scheduled to close on the 25th, provided CFPB guidelines are met and everyone does their part in a timely manner I can tell you with certainty that you can plan movers between the 25th of the month to the 5th of the next month."
How is anyone supposed to give proper notice to landlord that you’re no longer renewing the lease, so you don't lose deposits? How do you schedule movers? Ugh!!
It doesn't have to be this difficult and yes, we can tell you with certainty a closing and move in date. It is essential that when you decide to buy a home, or sell your home you select a great real estate team! Make sure that you are working with a team of professionals that know what they are doing, and that work hard for YOUR best interest! A good real estate agent will have a team of professionals that he/she works with, and recommends; from lenders, escrow officers, inspectors, etc. There are a lot of people involved in each transaction, about 25 in total, that will in one way or another touch your transaction, so it is important to have a good process of communication in place as well. A professional will look ahead to cover all bases to ensure that when the contract closing date arrives, you are getting your keys and able to move in. We are working for you and our job is to ensure that the move in date isn't another added stress in your life. We will inform you and recommend things like ConnectedUtilities, where one call will turn on all of your services to your new home including cable and Internet. Know who you are working with, ask questions and get well informed.

"Rich at OmniNuvo Realty recently helped me sell my house and he sold it for the highest price in my neighborhood. He used OmniNuvo Realty's exclusive Seller Advantage Program and Top Dollar Guarantee, and the first weekend on the market we had over 20 showings and 4 offers that came in at full price or higher. And I sold my house for $55,000 more than a house that recently sold of similar size in my neighborhood. Other agents I talked to wanted to list my house for $35,000 less than what Rich said he could list and sell it for and they tried to talk me into it by saying they would lower their commission. But when I spoke Rich he said he never lowers his commission because he does something far more important for his Seller's, he gets them Top Dollar for their house! Rich said what would you rather do save a couple of thousand dollars on the commission with a typical agent that does the bare minimum, or hire a real professional that has a success record of selling homes for 20,000 to 50,000 over the sold comparables. I was skeptical at first but then Rich showed me multiple samples of his recent listings and proved that he had sold 3 of his most recent listings for $50,000 over the sold comparables. And then he backed it up with his Top Dollar Gurantee, OmniNuvo Realty guarantees to sell your house for Top Dollar or you pay No Seller Agent Commission! Rich and his team of professionals got my house Market Ready and I was under contract with a full price cash offer in just 4 days! I highly recommend you call Rich at OmniNuvo Realty before settling for an agent that says they will discount thier commission, think about it is any agent that is discounting their commission really going to try to sell your house for top dollar? Rich invested over $1,500 of his own money to help get my house market ready, is discount agent going to that? Call Rich at OmniNuvo Realty."
