Don’t Ever Trust an Average Realtor to Determine Property Value?
Buying a home is the most serious financial decision one can make. It can be an amazing and exciting experience or a complete nightmare. This mainly depends on the experience and knowledge of your realtor. Buyers have three main concerns before purchasing any type of residential real estate; the problem is 80% of all realtors don’t have the proper experience or training to address these concerns.
Three main concerns are the following:
The question that you have to ask yourself is a simple one: Would you rather have a typical realtor or a certified real estate broker and appraiser represent and handle the purchase of your most valuable financial asset?
Let us review the top three main concerns above and see how Rick Sarouk and the RS Real Estate Group differ from the average realtor.
1. CONDITION: The number one element for a buyer during the purchase of a real estate transaction is the overall condition of the property and the cost of any repairs that may be necessary. The condition factor is something that 90% of all buyers have to face when they purchase property in Southern California since most properties are not completely remodeled or new.
For example: you could have two identical houses on the same street or location, one with a with remodeled kitchen and bathrooms and the other with a dated kitchen and bathrooms that appears to be from the 70s. Obviously, cost of absorption has to be explained properly to the buyer in order to determine the right price, unless the property is listed with this cost in mind (which most of the time is not the case).
This kind of analysis, referred to as the construction cost approach breakdown by appraisers, is not something that the average realtor can comprehend. Certified appraisers use this analysis in most reports for financial institutions and the government. It is a very important element in determining true market value for older properties with depreciating improvements. Bottom line: no realtor will or can offer this service, but RS Real Estate Group buyers get this type of analysis on every property before purchase so that they can fully understand what they will be paying for and the overall market value for a property before submitting an offer to purchase.
An RS Real Estate Buyer will always be more educated and informed in the precise methods of determining market value compared to all other buyers working with a typical realtor. Why you ask? Simply because each element that determines market value will be reviewed and presented to them by a Certified Broker & Appraiser with 25 years of experience. We have found that once a buyer fully comprehends the purchase price of a property before submitting an offer, they will not be subject to remorse during or after the transaction.
2. PRICE: The Number two element that makes or breaks a real estate transaction, whether buying or selling, is the determination and understanding of market value (price). This is where 80% of all realtors fail due to their lack of understanding and training in how to determine true market value for a property. Due to this lack of knowledge, they also fail to properly communicate and make the buyer and seller comprehend and accept the right price. Without this simple and fundamental understanding of how to appraise real estate a failure to communicate develops and parties start to negotiate up or down hence destroying the buyers ability to purchase a property at the right price.
As an approved RS Real Estate Group buyer, you will be represented and protected by a certified real estate broker and appraiser with 25 years of experience. You never have to worry about “purchasing at the wrong price,” ever. Price will be analyzed and determined via an appraisal, not a CMA, before you even consider placing an offer to purchase. In another words, you will receive a free certified appraisal opinion on each and every property you’ll want to purchase. The retail value of this service alone is in the thousands. RS Real Estate Group offers the service to all our buyers for free and since all our buyers 100% understand and accept the right price for a piece of property, they feel more confident, secure and excited to move forward with the transaction without any remorse.
3. NEGOTIATION: This critical element can make or break a real estate transaction. A realtor must have experience in the art of negotiation with the listing agent and seller. RS Real Estate Group has a closing ratio of 95% and this is simply due to our presentation of an offer at the right price based on a certified appraisal and conveying that fact to the other party. We have found that most, if not all, listing agents and sellers are much more receptive to accept the right price on home if the price analysis is coming from not only an experience real estate broker, but more importantly, from a certified appraiser.

If you are in the market looking to purchase real estate, then you need to make sure your interests are protected by a real estate team that not only is experienced in all aspects of a real estate transaction, but also one that has the knowledge and ability to pin point an accurate purchase price. Again, the question you as a buyer need to ask yourself is: who would you trust with the purchase of your most valuable possession? A certified real estate Broker & Appraiser or an average realtor?
