The Duty Of Confidentiality In Real Estate

In any Listing Agreement there is a point in time when the agency relationship ends.

A Listing Agreement, as it is widely known, is none other than a contract between the rightful titleholder of an interest in land (the ‚Principal‘) and a duly licensed real estate firm (the ‚Agent‘), whereby the firm stipulates and agrees to find a Buyer within a specified timeframe who is ready, willing and able to purchase the interest in land that is the subject matter of the contract while acting within the realm of the authority that the Principal confers onto the Agent, and wherein furthermore the titleholder stipulates and agrees to pay a commission should the licensee ever be successful in finding such Buyer.

As in all contracts, there is implied in a Listing Agreement an element which is commonly know at law as an ‚implied covenant of good faith and fair dealings‘. This covenant is a general assumption of the law that the parties to the contract – in this case the titleholder and the licensed real estate firm – will deal fairly with each other and that they will not cause each other to suffer damages by either breaking their words or otherwise breach their respective and mutual contractual obligations, express and implied. A breach of this implied covenant gives rise to liability both in contract law and, depending on the circumstances, in tort as well.

Due to the particular nature of a Listing Agreement, the Courts have long since ruled that during the term of the agency relationship there is implied in the contract a second element that arises out of the many duties and responsibilities of the Agent towards the Principal: a duty of confidentiality, which obligates an Agent acting exclusively for a Seller or for a Buyer, or a Dual Agent acting for both parties under the provisions of a Limited Dual Agency Agreement, to keep confidential certain information provided by the Principal. Like for the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealings, a breach of this duty of confidentiality gives rise to liability both in contract law and, depending on the circumstances, in tort as well.

Pursuant to a recent decision of the Real Estate Council of British Columbia (http://www.recbc.ca/) , the regulatory body empowered with the mandate to protect the interest of the public in matters involving Real Estate, a question now arises as to whether or not the duty of confidentiality extends beyond the expiration or otherwise termination of the Listing Agreement.

In a recent case the Real Estate Council reprimanded two licensees and a real estate firm for breaching a continuing duty of confidentiality, which the Real Estate Council found was owing to the Seller of a property. In this case the subject property was listed for sale for over two years. During the term of the Listing Agreement the price of the property was reduced on two occasions. This notwithstanding, the property ultimately did not sell and the listing expired.

Following the expiration of the listing the Seller entered into three separate ‚fee agreements‘ with the real estate firm. On all three occasions the Seller declined agency representation, and the firm was identified as ‚Buyer’s Agent‘ in these fee agreements. A party commenced a lawsuit as against the Seller, which was related to the subject property.

The lawyer acting for the Plaintiff approached the real estate firm and requested that they provide Affidavits containing information about the listing of the property. This lawyer made it very clear that if the firm did not provide the Affidavits voluntarily, he would either subpoena the firm and the licensees as witnesses to give evidence before the Judge, or he would obtain a Court Order pursuant to the Rules Of Court compelling the firm to give such evidence. The real estate firm, believing there was no other choice in the matter, promptly complied by providing the requested Affidavits.

As a direct and proximate result, the Seller filed a complaint with the Real Estate Council maintaining that the information contained in the Affidavits was ‚confidential‘ and that the firm had breached a duty of confidentiality owing to the Seller. As it turned out, the Affidavits were never used in the court proceedings.

The real estate brokerage, on the other hand, took the position that any duty of confidentiality arising from the agency relationship ended with the expiration of the Listing Agreement. The firm argued, moreover, that even if there was a duty of continuing confidentiality such duty would not preclude or otherwise limit the evidence that the real estate brokerage would be compelled to give under a subpoena or in a process under the Rules Of Court. And, finally, the realty company pointed out that there is no such thing as a realtor-client privilege, and that in the instant circumstances the Seller could not have prevented the firm from giving evidence in the lawsuit.

The Real Estate Council did not accept the line of defence and maintained that there exists a continuing duty of confidentiality, which extends after the expiration of the Listing Agreement. Council ruled that by providing the Affidavits both the brokerage and the two licensee had breached this duty.

The attorney-client privilege is a legal concept that protects communications between a client and the attorney and keeps those communications confidential. There are limitations to the attorney-client privilege, like for instance the fact that the privilege protects the confidential communication but not the underlying information. For instance, if a client has previously disclosed confidential information to a third party who is not an attorney, and then gives the same information to an attorney, the attorney-client privilege will still protect the communication to the attorney, but will not protect the information provided to the third party.

Because of this, an analogy can be drawn in the case of a realtor-client privilege during the existence of a Listing Agreement, whereby confidential information is disclosed to a third party such as a Real Estate Board for publication under the terms of a Multiple Listings Service agreement, but not before such information is disclosed to the real estate brokerage. In this instance the privilege theoretically would protect the confidential communication as well as the underlying information.

And as to whether or not the duty of confidentiality extends past the termination of a Listing Agreement is still a matter of open debate, again in the case of an attorney-client privilege there is ample legal authority to support the position that such privilege does in fact extend indefinitely, so that arguably an analogy can be inferred as well respecting the duration of the duty of confidentiality that the Agent owes the Seller, to the extent that such duty extends indefinitely.

This, in a synopsis, seems to be the position taken by the Real Estate Council of British Columbia in this matter.

Clearly, whether the duty of confidentiality that stems out of a Listing Agreement survives the termination of the contract is problematic to the Real Estate profession in terms of practical applications. If, for instance, a listing with Brokerage A expires and the Seller re-lists with Brokerage B, if there is a continuing duty of confidentiality on the part of Brokerage A, in the absence of express consent on the part of the Seller a Realtor of Brokerage A could not act as a Buyer’s Agent for the purchase of the Seller’s property, if this was re-listed by Brokerage B. All of which, therefore, would fly right in the face of all the rules of professional cooperation between real estate firms and their representatives. In fact, this process could potentially destabilize the entire foundation of the Multiple Listings Service system.

In the absence of specific guidelines, until this entire matter is clarified perhaps the best course of action for real estate firms and licensees when requested by a lawyer to provide information that is confidential, is to respond that the brokerage will seek to obtain the necessary consent from the client and, if that consent is not forthcoming, that the lawyer will have to take the necessary legal steps to compel the disclosure of such information.

What to Consider Before You Buy a Home Security System

What’s the difference between a home alarm system and a home security system? Technically… nothing! Basically what matters most is the level of home automation, the installation process and the monitoring options. There are many home security systems to choose from and this needs careful consideration. The best way to come to a good decision is by answering the following questions.

* Do you own or rent your current home?

* Will you need remote mobile access and what are the options?

* Is a camera necessary?

* Are you planning to move anytime soon?

* Do you need more than an anti-burglar system?

* Any good referrals?

* What is the reputation of the security system?

These simple questions will guide you to the choice of home security and ensure you get precisely what you need. You will find that most home security systems come with extra features that you don’t need and most likely will never use! Being a smart shopper will save you money and a lot of headache. Just do your homework properly.

So what next?

After answering the above questions, its time to go into the actual home security system options and get the best that suits your needs or that you prefer. The following is a summarized list of features to always look out for when investing in a home security system.

* Cost – this covers buying the equipment, installation and monthly monitoring subscription costs. You need to consider the price of the equipment as well as the installation cost that comes with the home security system bought. Some wireless security systems require a simple DIY, but you can also hire a handyman if your DIY skills never developed! Make sure you get the best bargain as you will get different quotes for the same thing.

Tip: Wireless home security systems are cheaper and easier to install compared to wired systems.

* Installation – the next thing you should consider is the installation requirements and procedure. While some simple systems installations are DIY, you might need to hire a third-party professional handyman and pay by the hour to get it fixed properly. Otherwise most security companies will do the installation for you which is charged as part of the overall cost.

* Monitoring – how your home security system is monitored is very important. Most security companies will have a central monitoring station that is manned 24/7. There are basically 3 ways that monitoring channels can be set up. Cellular monitoring which is the safest option but also most expensive, phone line and internet which is the cheapest of the three. Please note that central monitoring costs can run up to $60 per month and you may not actually need it! Also, self monitoring may be a good idea but not always the best option.

* Home Automation – this is one feature that has gained popularity in recent times. Please note that you’ll need to pay extra for this. Basically what this will do for you is allow you to control appliances and the security equipment while you’re out of the house. You can be able to view live or recorded CCTV camera feeds and disarm or arm the alarm from wherever you are through your smartphone or any other web enabled device. A system that supports various detection and sensor while allowing you extended control options is the best.

* Contracts – always remember to read the fine print. Many security companies will slap you with a contract when installing the home security system for you. Check the period of the contract and the terms before signing anything. Also confirm if the contract covers things such as moving the system to your new home in case you need to move. Contracts are binding legal documents and you will want to be on the safe side of the fence when things go unexpectedly wrong!

* Warranty On Equipment – you will want to consider this very keenly before purchasing any security or home monitoring equipment. Most security companies offer a warranty covering free replacements or repairs for a certain period of time. Confirm the warranty information to avoid any future problems.

* Scalability or Add-On Features – another thing you will want with a security system is the ability and ease of upgrading or downgrading as required. As lifestyles are known to change, it’s important to find out before hand if the security system will allow you to incorporate the changes or additions without complications.

* Remote Access – a good home security system will also allow you to have remote access either via mobile apps or web-based dashboards.

Final Word

These few features will help you get the best home security system which will bring you peace of mind and security you so deserve in your home. Just ensure your research and evaluation is thorough before entering into any related deals.

How to Find Real Estate Buyers by the Dozen

Buyers are out there, it’s just a matter of rounding them up and keeping in touch. It helps to be able to determine which type of buyer you are hunting for from the start. Remember this: you’re the person who has something they want when a buyer calls you; if you are calling them then you are trying to sell them, let’s insure buyers call you so you remain in the position of power from the start. You should Be a Real Estate Heavy Weight.

Let’s look at a few categories of typical buyers to get some perspective on their mindsets and how and when we’ll market to find them in order to supply their real estate buying needs.

o Rehabbers: These are folks looking to fix and flip property for quick turn profits.

o Landlords: These are folks looking to buy to rent out to others for long-term equity accrual while generating a positive cash-flow every month.

o Wholesaler’s: Will either buy or put an option on your contract to hopefully flip the paper to another buyer who is willing to pay more.

o Lease Option end-buyers: These are folks who can’t qualify for a loan of their own but want to be home owners as opposed to renters again.

o Retail Buyers: These are end buyers who can obtain a mortgage or have cash and generally buy the property for their own housing needs.

There are variations of buyers out there but the above 4 types are generally considered the prime targets of people who have property to sell. Understanding each buyer’s mindset helps you to market to those buyers interests, do they want quick cash, long-term wealth, tax deductions, a place to call home etc… If you ask enough general questions you’ll quickly discern which type of buyer you have at hand. Once you know, you can then tailor your offers and present properties that satisfy what is important to them.

Buyer: Someone who is ready, willing and qualified! Those that aren’t qualified may be perfect tenants, lease option buyers or owner finance candidates, so qualified can have different meanings.

Ready: Someone who is in the market to buy within 1-45 days, keep in mind a retail or lease option end-buyer generally buys once and they’re out of the game, landlords, rehabbers and wholesaler’s are more likely to buy multiple properties from you over time as they accumulate, sell or flip existing assets. Having active buyer’s lists in different categories that are often ready to buy property is a very smart way to operate.

Gee Danno, how do I find these people? Ah! I’m so glad you asked! Let’s start out with one of the all time greatest methods to kick-start your building a buyers list. In your search for bargain priced properties of your own, it makes sense that you will eventually find a very good deal, once you have a superior deal to offer you turn around and market that property at cost! Yep, no profit for you on this one. Why? Because you are going to advertise that property to every investor and potential property buyer on the planet!

The reason for this is that you will get the most calls and response when you advertise a screaming deal! Granted you’ll most likely sell that deal relatively quickly but you’ll be gathering information from each potential buyer who calls to build your buyers list for future properties that you offer. If you don’t have a property of your own to sell, ask someone who does! I can assure you that they aren’t going to turn down your offer to advertise their property for them for free! You might negotiate a small fee if in fact you do sell their property but your main objective is to build you buyers list!

Let me give you an example of one way to collect potential buyers by the dozen, hold an auction, advertise for a solid week in advance so you attract the most amount of buyers, begin with bandit signs, placing about 100 of them around a 5 square mile area of the property, we just did this and had 800 calls because it was a great deal of those 800 calls we had 300 people show up on auction day, of course the home sold but we also added new buyers to our buyers list.

Here are ways to advertise for those buyers:

o Bandit Signs

o CraigsList

o Backpage

o GoogleBase

o Postlets

o Zillow

o Pay Per Click Ads

o Local online Classifieds

o Media Website

o Flyers

o Newspaper/inserts

o REIA’s

o Direct mail/post cards

o Start an investors MeetUp group

o Email

o Phone

o Fax

o Your own website

Use your imagination, the list is limitless, there is a free e-book called the Internet Real Estate Yellow Pages that you can download for free at my site MagicBullets.com go grab that and you’ll find 100 more ideas and places to list your deals. Now go Be A Real Estate Heavyweight!

Will Commercial Zoning Increase Your Property Value?

If you have the correct combination of items and you have a large enough pocketbook, this may be your ticket to retirement. But sometimes, it’s your ticket to the poor house.

I looked at a home that is zoned mixed use. In this area, this means that you can either use the residence as a home or use the residence as a commercial site. These types of sites are usually limited to low impact items such as office buildings, apartments, etc.

What’s the catch? Well, you’ll have to own a large enough parcel of land to make a commercial deal work. This is why you see five homes along a busy street all for sale at once and the zoning is commercial. This is because in order to be approved for commercial development, there must be a large enough parcel to make the commercial development work.

Usually, for mixed residential zoning, these areas are close to town or close to other apartments or business in the area. I’ve appraised several of these types of property. Many times, advertising the zoning as mixed use is enough to sell the home for more just because it may appeal to that specific buyer that wants to live in the same home and run a business out of the home. One home that I appraised offered a living area on the main level and a daylight basement offered office buildings that were rented out.

My understanding is that some banks that specialize in residential zoning will not loan money on mixed use properties. This, of course, is a downfall, if you’re trying to get a residential loan. Some buyers will not want to use their residential home for office use. This will limit the number of buyers that may want to buy your home.

So, will commercial zoning increase your property value? If your home is a residential home with the best use as a residential use, commercial zoning may decrease your home value and make it difficult to get a loan and make it difficult to sell, because you’ll be located on a busy street. If your home is residential use and the highest and best use is to build a commercial structure, most often, your land used as commercial use will be more valuable than your home used as residential use.

So, the moral of the story is to keep an open mind on these types of properties. I looked at some homes the other day where the home is an older residential home with a larger lot. The zoning can be switched from residential to commercial for $1500. Residential homes with larger lots with similar zoning were selling for $350,000 to $400,000. Residential homes that have been switched to commercial zoning were selling for $500,000 to $700,000. So for $1500 and some time, this would be a good investment for your money.

5 First Steps In Preparing Your Home For Sale

First impressions have a major impact on potential buyers. It’s for this reason that a good realtor will walk through your home to suggest the proper repairs and upgrades to best compliment your home and sell it fast. With your realtor, you will imagine what a potential buyer will see when they approach your house and walk through each room. Your realtor will know what potential buyers in your neighborhood and price range are looking at and what will help you sell your unique home and play up its features. Here is a generic list that will help you get started.

1.) Night Lights

A lot of people aren’t aware that potential home buyers often drive by your house at night. If you don’t have adequate lighting to highlight your home’s features, invest in a new porch light and some ground lighting to highlight your walkway or features in your landscaping.

2.) Curb Appeal

Elevate your curb appeal by cleaning your yard, mowing and edging your lawn, and trimming any shrubs you have. Fix any first impressions that may catch buyer’s eyes such as cracks in concrete, weeds, broken porch posts, ugly doors, and any clutter that may be stored in front of your home. Also, if you have a mailbox, be sure it’s charming and that your doorbell works well and makes a pleasant, audible from the outside sound.

3.) Prep Inside

The first step to preparing your home for sale is to remove any unnecessary items from the home so they can imagine their own things in it. Less is more when it comes to furniture and decor. Leave the bare minimum for furniture to depict how large the space is, and then include decor only where you want features highlighted or the eye drawn. An expert tip is to remove all but 1/3 of your closet contents and get matching hangers. Be sure to replace or shampoo all carpets in the home. Apply special attention to staging the bathrooms with a fresh roll of toilet paper (V.I.P folded, over not under, and pointed down in the shape of a triangle), brand new hand soap, new guest towels, and a clean looking shower curtain. Dress beds with attractive, cohesive bed sets.

4.) Make All Small and Inexpensive Repairs

Buyers will look at all functioning items of the home and tally even the smallest repairs. Be sure to repair all leaking faucets, defective or squeaky doors, light bulbs and fans, freshly caulk bathtubs and showers if necessary, replace filters, inspect and clean the hot water heater, and make appliances as presentable as possible. You can even include a sheet of paper attached to appliances explaining their desirable features or share with potential buyers your average electric bills and other home expenses specific to your property.

5.) Appeal To Their Senses During Open Houses

Having all the lights on, blinds open, a candle lit and fresh cookies (preferably freshly baked for the scent) will appeal to buyer’s senses and make them feel at home already. Remove all pet belongings, including bowls and food. Empty trash cans & close toilet lids.

Preparing To Sell Your Home: 5 Steps

When you purchased the home, you are currently residing in, you probably made some personal commitment, and developed a personal, emotional relationship. For whatever reason, you have now, recognized, and believe, it’s time to sell your house, and relocate. However, since for most people, their house represents their single – largest, financial asset, doesn’t it make sense, to proceed, in the wisest, most responsible way, in order to achieve the best results? If you make this decision, begin by being, as prepared, as possible, and proceeding in a wise way. With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly consider, identify, review and discuss, 5 steps, which are a well – considered way, to proceed.

1. Check your title: Consider your property, and find out, if there are any outstanding issues, that might create challenges, to transferring a clean title, when you sell your house. These may include: building permits, which were never closed – out properly; work done, without proper permits; any property – line impingements, which might be problematic; tax or other liens; etc.

2. Look objectively, not emotionally: It’s often difficult for homeowners to objectively evaluate their properties, which is one of the essential reasons, to hire the right real estate professional, who might look, with an objective – eye! We all develop some degree of emotional attachment to our home, but it’s important to recognize, those wonderful moments, and significant, life cycle, experiences, while invaluable to you, add no value, to potential buyers. Your real estate agent should provide you, with a professionally designed, Competitive Market Analysis, or CMA, in order to price your home right/ correctly, from the start!

3. What would you be willing to pay, and why?: Ask yourself, introspectively, objectively, and honestly, if you were a buyer, looking at your house, what would you be willing to pay, and why? Consider the strengths and weaknesses, and how it compares with other houses, for – sale, in your local real estate market! A smart way to begin, is to look at some of the competition, and objectively compare!

4. Address needs and weaknesses: Once you identify the needs, weaknesses, and flaws, your house has, in terms of how others, might perceive it, address these in a smart, rational, productive manner.

5. Hire the right real estate agent: Interview several real estate agents, and consider, what each, might offer, which might best benefit you! Overlook the rhetoric and promises, and don’t be swayed, but anyone, who over – states, his suggested listing price. Rather, be certain, the professional you hire, is someone, who you feel comfortable with, will be empathetic, responsive, responsible, and have a marketing plan, for your specific home.

Properly prepare to sell your home, and you will be best – served! Protect your best interests, as well as financial ones!

Art Collecting Tips for Profit and Pleasure (A Six-Part Series): Part 6 – Leaving a Legacy of Art

PART 6 – LEAVING A LEGACY OF ART

What a waste when wonderful collections of art are decimated upon the collector’s

demise! This happens all too often because of the lack of records and instructions

left behind concerning the art pieces.

Ignorance results in the art being relegated to a dusty and moldy storeroom or,

worse, being consigned to the trash. More conscientious ‚beneficiaries‘ may give

away the pieces to thrift stores and charities. Commonly, haulers are summoned to

dispose of the pieces. Some shrewd haulers have learned to consult art dealers on

their ‚finds‘, as they have discovered that there can be gold in dirt.

Imagine paying someone to take away priceless art! Sadly, this scenario is played

out year after year around the world, because too many art collectors fail to plan for

future owners of their art. Have you planned for posterity?

Who would you like your art collection to go to some day? A loved one? A charity? A

foundation? Or perhaps a museum? Who will be the beneficiary of your much-loved

and treasured art? If you don’t want your art pieces to fall into undesirable hands or

be destroyed, you’ll need to start keeping detailed records and make clear

provisions NOW.

The Importance Of Documentation

Some years ago, while clearing out my parents‘ rambling old house which had just

been sold, I came across 10 glass beer mugs, stored away in a small musty

storeroom under the staircase. The mugs were plain and ordinary-looking, except

for a circular, thumbnail-sized design an inch below the rim. No documents

accompanied them.

For a moment, I contemplated keeping the mugs, as I thought they could serve

some practical use around my own home, although they were rather unattractive.

That moment passed very quickly, as I still had much clearing and packing to do.

After all, the mugs appeared very pedestrian. I knew that I could always get more

appealing-looking mugs whenever I wanted. So I left the mugs behind in the old

house. I don’t know if anyone ever took them before the demolition crew started

their work.

Less than a month later, there was a newspaper advertisement looking for beer

mugs just like the ones I had seen in my parents‘ old house. The company which

had placed the ad was willing to pay $500 for each mug in good condition turned

in. Those 10 mugs I had left behind were practically in mint condition. I could have

cried.

From Treasure To Junk

Have you ever seen the sign „We buy junk and sell antiques“? While this may sound

humorous, there’s also a lot of poignancy and irony intermingled. Don’t let your art

treasures become junk. Do your utmost to ensure that they are treated with respect

and go where you wish them to go.

List Options And Directions

Whatever the size of your art collection, do provide a list of options and directions

to go with it. Besides the usual documentation which should accompany every item,

this should include the contact particulars of parties who can assist in the valuation,

sale or dispensation of the art pieces.

Choose Beneficiaries

Do also mention any parties you may like to give your art to. Remember, you may

know the subject and its market like the back of your hand, but others probably

won’t. Don’t leave your beneficiaries at the mercy of opportunists or others who

may not be able to appreciate the value of your art collection.

Provide Values

It’s a very good idea to include the insurance or replacement values of your art

pieces. You might even wish to provide suggested wholesale values, so your

beneficiaries will be more prepared should they decide to sell your art pieces.

Ideally, if you haven’t already begun, let the people closest to you understand the

importance of your art collection now. Once they develop a healthy respect for it,

the chances improve that your art collection will be in good hands and go where you

want it to go.

Be an artful collector – plan like a pro all the way.

Selling a Home? Home Staging Tips to Help Your Artwork Sell Your Home

Home staging can turn a white elephant house into a hot property, but you have to recognize a few key concepts. One important mistake many home sellers make is forgetting that staging is not the same as interior decorating. When you stage to sell, you think of prospective buyers, not your own individual taste.

The challenge can be especially great when it comes to putting art on walls. Choosing art that you love to live with will be quite different from choosing art to sell a home.

Many home sellers just leave their own art work on the walls. If you have been living with the house awhile, you could be making a major mistake. Art that works for you personally probably won’t help sell the house.

Inappropriate or offensive – One stager who walked into a house and was confronted by a gigantic painting of the seller’s naked little boy, in ALL his glory. That’s a little extreme but prospective buyers can be sensitive.

Individualistic – Religious icons, Asian art or an African mask collection…Buyers have strong feelings either way. You may get lucky and find a buyer who loves your collection. But buyers often have trouble erasing these images from their subconscious minds.

Bland and Ho Hum – Beige on beige? Art that could be viewed in a local motel? Even a new frame might make a picture stand out a little.

Walking a fine line on art can be tricky. I spend a lot of time with my clients going over these items. They’re often surprised how much difference the art work makes.

Selling Your House Fast to Cash Property Buyers

Are you looking for the ways to sell house fast? Going by traditional method of approaching a real estate agent and listing your property in the market may take several months to sell your property. Moreover, it also means additional costs. If you are looking for guaranteed sale of your house, there are number of companies who act as the cash house buyers and offer guaranteed home purchase schemes.

How Do these Cash House Buyers Work?

These cash house buyer companies buy houses and properties by making private deals. The biggest advantage of selling house to these companies is they pay cash quickly. Though several companies buy your property without inspecting it, a few other companies may pick and choose the houses they will buy. Most of the times, the cash house buyers offer a quick purchase to the house seller and they offer to complete the buying process in a week or so. In addition, some property buyers may offer sell and rent back scheme. In this scheme, the company purchases the house and allows the home owner to continue living in it as a tenant.

Main Advantages of Using Cash Property Buyers

Selling home in the open market can take longer which can be problem to many people who have immediate cash requirement. The most important advantage of selling home to a cash house buyer company is the speed. These companies apply a sympathetic approach to your requirement and push the house sale really quickly. The purchase is made on cash payment basis and there is no chain.

Several house buyer companies also offer good incentive as part of the cash house purchase deal. For instance, they may offer free legal fees involved in the process. In addition, the home sellers can also save more money as they do not have to pay for a Home Information pack. As this will be a private sale, they need not market their property in the open market. Sometimes, home sellers may opt to live back in their homes even after the sale as these companies may allow them to stay there for a period as the tenants.

Calling cash house buyers can be a good option if you want to sell house fast. There are no hassles involved in selling your house using cash house buyers.

Nobody likes to have a bulk of tables and chairs left in the pathway and it needs an extra two hours for setting them up. So, ensure that the rental company will deliver, set up and retrieve the equipment.

9. Think again before signing the agreement

Check whether everything is included in the contract or not that is price, delivery date, delivery fee, and service charges.

10. Things that you often forget to rent

Most of the people often forget about renting few items such as dance floors, music system, screens, table stands, etc.

11. Don’t consider multiple rental companies

Considering multiple rental companies will make your work even worse. There is a greater chance to easily forget about which items belong to which rental company.
