Tristan and his WHITEBOARD Seller Video Series - The Closing

TRISTAN AND HIS WHITEBOARD SELLER VIDEO SERIES

EPISODES 10.1-10.4

CLOSING DAY!



Closing is fun!
In the final episodes of Tristan and his WHITEBOARD Seller Video Series (until more are added, of course...), we talk about what it's all about:  the closing!
In episode 10.1, we talk about the moving process.  You gotta move out before the buyer's can move in.  I know, not fun... We discuss what you need to leave, take, and otherwise take care of.
Episode 10.2 rolls on with the buyer's walk through.  What should you expect during this?
Then we waltz into learning more about the final numbers in episode 10.3.  Learn more about how the real estate taxes work in South Dakota and how they are paid at closing.
Finally, it's all over in episode 10.4.  Closing Day!  In this video we answer your questions on what to expect and bring to this occasion.  Don't forget your signing hand!
AND - check out the awesomeness of YouTube screen captures in this weeks pic.  Looks like someone uses his hands when he talks....
It's been a pleasure to present these to you.  I know there will be more as more issues, thoughts and experiences come into play.  Until then...

 

SEE YOU AT THE WHITEBOARD!

Tristan and his WHITEBOARD Seller Video Series - The Inspections

TRISTAN AND HIS WHITEBOARD
SELLER VIDEO SERIES EPISODES 9.1 AND 9.2


The Inspections Process



Now that the deal is in place, it's time to move on to the inspections phase of the home selling process!
(Don't lie to me - after seeing the pic, you have the Inspector Gadget theme running through your head...you're welcome!)
In episode 9.1, we talk about the buyer's home inspection.  Yes, they will find something wrong and will ask you to fix something.  Just put that in your head right now.
Then we discuss the appraisal process in episode 9.2.  We talk about what you should expect...and to have patience.
The worst part about this part of the deal is the waiting...what will they say?  Have you heard back on the appraisal yet?  We get you through it the best when you understand how the pieces work.  Watch and learn!

Tristan and his WHITEBOARD - Your Home's Value

TRISTAN AND HIS WHITEBOARD WEEKLY RELEASE!

SELLER'S VIDEO SERIES

EPISODES #3.1, #3.2 AND #4:


Your Home's Value



One of the first questions asked when thinking about putting your home up for sale:
What is my home worth?
In this week's release of Tristan and his WHITEBOARD, we talk about your home's value.
Episode 3.1:  How is your home value determined?  Flip a coin?  Play darts?  I go into the process of what pieces make up your home's value in our Rapid City market.
And of course, if there are things that make up that value, there are things that are NOT a consideration...hello Episode 3.2.  (that dream you had about someone giving you millions of dollars....may not be the case!  :)
Finally in Episode 4, we cover those Online Home Value Estimates.   You know - plug your address in and get an instant value.  How do those work?  Are they accurate?
Tons of great information!  Don't miss out!
