Get the Best Deal When Selling Your Home –
Hampton Roads, Virginia Edition
Life would be great if we didn’t have to practice diligence in nearly every action we take. From setting up your bedside alarm clock, to purchasing stereos and appliances, to buying/selling a home or any Hampton Roads or Virginia Beach real estate transaction, we have a primary responsibility to be aware of the potential pitfalls. Unfortunately, most people pay less attention to the process of buying and selling their home than they do when buying a television set. Admittedly, because the process is much more complicated and requires more knowledge, the vast majority of home-buyers/sellers work with a real estate professional, Realtor®. However, this doesn’t necessarily remove the obstacles or protect us from financial or physical injury.
Your Hampton Roads or Virginia Beach home purchase/sale will likely be the most important transaction of your lifetime. The results of that decision are generally long-term, good or bad. The following examples are situations that have gone bad, even though a real estate professional was involved. The rest of this book is designed to help you make that transaction a positive one with long-term benefits.
