Assessed Value vs. Market Value | What is Assessed Value?

Assessed Value vs. Market Value | What is Assessed Value?

What is the difference between assessed value vs. market value?

Do you know the difference between assessed value vs. fair market value? Comment below. Let me know what other videos you might like to see!

If you think a homes assessed value and the fair market value have any correlation to one another, then you are wrong!
Often we as Realtors throw around real estate lingo. And these are two of those terms can be similar, but confusing. There is a big difference between an assessed value vs. fair market value.
Let’s start with the definition of an assessed value. It is a value put on a home, a measure for the county, in our case Alameda County, to collect an appropriate amount of taxes to give to the local cities and towns for their services. Assessed value is nothing more than a yardstick to collect taxes.

Let’s start with the definition of fair market value of a home. It is what a buyer would be willing to pay for a property on the open market with no undue influence. Don’t look for fair market values using Zillow.com to figure out what a home is worth!

Here’s one thing that I would like to point out. If you don’t agree with your homes assessment value, there is a process that you can challenge your homes assessed value. There will be some research and some paperwork involved, but if it means saving some money on your taxes, if you truly think your assessed value is wrong, do it.

Closing Day on A House | Can I Move In?

Closing Day on a House | Can I Move In?

↠Check out this video part 1 of this video: https://youtu.be/BIiM6qTGWB8

If I helped you, please consider subscribing to my channel    http://bit.ly/SubscribeCasey 

Would you buy a house that was not vacant?  Comment below ↡

When you are have closing day on a house, there are a few different scenarios that can be.  They won’t be a surprise as you will know about this part in the negotiations. But I though this would be a good time to talk about it. 

  1.   The house can be empty and you can move right in!
  2.   Sometimes the sellers are still moving out and need a day or two.
  3.   Sometimes the sellers have asked for rent back.  Officially you are a landlord. This might be the case if a home seller has purchased another house, but their home isn’t ready.  This is typically not a long term situation. It is usually just for a few weeks or months. 

Now, lets just say that the home is empty like this home.  This is the most important thing that I tell my home buyers.  The sellers were not renters who had a cleaning deposit they were getting back.  I have seen homes that have been a disaster. Bits of garbage and the house needs a good cleaning.  There should not be any structural damage or holes in the wall. 

We do a walk though before the home closes to be sure that any repairs that were negotiated were done, appliances that were asked for are still there and that basically it is in the same condition as the day that we made the offer. 

So, again, don’t expect the house to be spotless.  You may need to plan a day of cleaning to your standards.

Closing Day on a House

Closing Day on a House

Today is the day! You are getting the keys to your new house! Or are You?

What other real estate videos would you like to see? If you are just joining me for the first time, I make videos to educate home buyers and sellers through the lingo of real estate and I would love for you to hit the subscribe button below and then the bell to remind you when my videos are uploaded weekly!

If you are looking forward to getting your keys to the house, this means that you have:

1- Signed all the loan documents and disclosures. Also a myriad of other documents.

2- The escrow company has received your funding either from your loan or your cash that you have. This can be the cash from your house that you sold prior or your bank account.

3- The escrow company has dispersed the funds to the home seller. They have a check in hand and are moving on.

4- This is the most important part. The title has been recorded at the county recorders office. The title company will call and confirm this with the county and then let your real estate agent know. Now we can celebrate…or can we? Does this make sense? Think of cash for keys…If so, Comment below ↡

What is Earnest Money Deposit?

What is Earnest Money Deposit?

Do you know how much your Earnest Money Deposit will be if you buy a house? Comment below.

New Videos Every Week! – Subscribe here: http://bit.ly/SubscribeCasey

When you find the home of your dreams, you have to show the sellers you are serious by putting some money into an account, as a good faith deposit, otherwise known as an Earnest Money Deposit.

Earnest money represents the buyer’s level of commitment to closing the deal and purchasing the home. The bigger the deposit, the happier the seller will be and the more reassured they are about you wanting their home. It also ties you to the property and keeps you from looking for additional properties.

Today, the standard amount is 3%, but it can be more, or less. That amount is large enough that it will make any buyer think twice about walking away from the house impulsively. It can be forfeited if you break the contract and walk away from the deal. If the sale goes through, the earnest money is applied towards the sale of the home. If the sale does not go through for some reason, WITHIN a contingency time, which will be explain in the next videos, the seller will sign a release of escrow and the earnest money is refunded to the buyer.

When is a Good Time to Buy a House?

When is a Good Time to Buy a House?

Are you thinking about buying a home and you’re just not sure if now is the right time? I know, I get it, its so hard to know who to trust or what to believe, I feel the same way when I see the news or read the newspaper. It’s like ugggggg. It can be very scary can’t it. Well of course it is, most likely buying a home is going to be the largest investment you will ever make. Hi, my name is Casey Serafino-Lee and I am your local Realtor.

It’s a great time to buy and here’s why. *1 According to the National Association of Realtors, Interest rates are up 19.1% from this time last year, and they are anticipated to continue to go up. Also, according to the Home Price Expectation Survey, home values over the next 5 years are going to go up. Here’s an example, If you were to buy a home worth $500,000 now, in five years it would be worth almost 580,000. That’s like putting $80,000 in your pocket. So let’s ask the question again, IS IT THE RIGHT TIME TO BUY?. YES, because interest rates are rising and so are home prices.

Bay Area Real Estate Market | Hayward, CA [Quarter 1, 2019]

 

Bay Area Market Report | Hayward, CA | Quarter 1
Comment below ↡ Do you think that the Bay Area Real Estate market is cooling down?

Isn’t it cold outside? But, the real estate market, it’s hot!

Hi, I’m Casey Serafino-Lee with Intero Real Estate. In the Hayward area, in January 2018, we had exactly .6 months of inventory of homes for sale. This year in January 2019, we had a little more, but only 1.2 months of inventory.

It’s not enough! And we’re still in a seller’s market, and buyers, they are everywhere! They’re calling me constantly, seeing if I have a home to fit their needs.

So sellers, if you plan to sell this year, now is the time. There’s less of competition of other homes on the market. People generally wait until spring and summer to start looking, but not this year. So it’s a really great time to sell.

I would love to help you, so call me today. I want you to love where you live. Have an awesome day, and see you soon.
