“I Know Buying a Home Instead of Renting is Better…Stop it Already!” 

Without fail, Realtors speak in unison to the crowds.
“Buying a home instead of renting is better!” 
These are the reasons [money - comfort - stability..etc ]
Enough already, we have been incessantly  trying to convince the public about home buying when there is really no convincing to do. .they already know
A survey made by Hanley Wood Housing 360 revealed a startling statistics about Owners and Renters
buying homes
Renters already know that buying is better than renting. . 
38% are not homeowners just because they think “They may not qualify for a Mortgage” 
55% are not homeowners simply because they “Cannot afford the Downpayment” 
Adding them together and the numbers don’t lie. .
A Startling 93% of renters already know that buying is better than renting . .
The only thing stopping them is their credit and cash at hand.
If we solve these two problems, we can wipe out the rental market in the USA
To my  fellow Realtors, stop pounding a message that they already heard…and start solving your clients two major problems
Credit and Cash for the downpayment
That is the only thing renters want to hear. . .so help them now!
You ask yourself?
Why are they already convinced? 
real estate
 Since 1975 statistics show that home prices [Median Sales Price] have steady went up. . 
is almost too predictable. . 
Every accumulate year shows a steady increase with exception of the obstacles we encountered in 2005 and 2006. 
Happy to see we are getting back into the groove of what we call a normal market once again. ..
If we match this with average income earned during the same years, [Mean Household Income] Salaries are moving up and steadily . .similar to house prices.
But the major point to take from this study is that RENTERS [CPI Rent of Primary Residence] have also have seen rental increases year after year. . 
is almost too predictable. . 
I could easily predict what renters will be paying in the year 2020, 2025, 2030 and beyond.. .
To further amplify the message. . 
Here comes this study:
home ownership
Owners got it made!
Their equity money keeps growing and growing building their net worth year after year for just being homeowners! 
A happy and welcome unintended consequence for the vast majority of them.
Meanwhile, RENTERS. . .
Their [Median Net Worth] is the “unintended” consequence as well. .
No one wants to rent to be worth less!
Going back to my initial argument that RENTERS do not need to be reminded of this anymore. .
Let’s look at the problem and come up with solutions. . 
Is it affordable? 
Yes it is!
If you have the credit and the money for the downpayment. . 
There has never been another time in the history of housing. .[at least since 1971] how affordable is to really buy a home right now.
helping buy a house
Interest rates are low…and home prices are holding steady
Let’s look at the two problems and come up with solutions. . 
America is a nation of borrowers and there is no education for young people to start life the right way. Parents are doing a lousy job!
From the very first time they leave college of their parents homes, they are already loaded with college debt and credit card debt.
A bad way to start an unhappy life…loaded with bills and forced to take the first job offered, ending up stuck and  pressured to hold and pursue their dreams because they need that weekly paycheck to pay their bills. .
Now, adding insult to injury (a self inflicted obstacle)…. .

How To Sell Your Own Home in Maryland? 

Thinking of selling your home yourself?

Thinking on selling your home on your own?

For Sale by Owner (FSBO) There are some people that sell their home the  FSBO way.

The majority of these sellers do it because they know the person they are selling it too. Most often this involves family members or close friends.

But in most cases they sell their own home to avoid paying a commission to an agent.

This is a risky move for anyone to try as it  reminds me of a time when I met one of my clients for the first time.. 

First, allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Fernando Herboso, I’m the broker for Maxus Realty Group in Montgomery County Maryland. 

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about this client of mine that had to sell his home and was looking for ways to save money. 

He had a dilemma, as he was considering selling his home on his own in an effort to save commission,  but he also knew that selling his home as a FSBO was too time consuming and too risky for him.

Luckily he listened to my presentation as he realized that a very small percentage of FSBO are usually successful. 

Why try to overcome the odds and take on the difficulties of creating marketing systems just to sell one home?

I reminded him that my systems were already in place as my company  spends thousands of dollars each month making them run efficiently for all our listings…

That’s when I decided to create a postcard that depicts clearly the difficulties for all For Sale By Owner candidates trying to save on commission fees.. .ignoring the facts that it takes time and money to market a home…if you want to achieve the highest value possible. 

Here is what we created: 

For Sale By Owner


The odds of overcoming the difficulties in selling a home by creating system from scratch.. .simply does not make any sense these days…

This is why my client realized that he had to employ the services of a full time real estate professional, (that is) if he wanted the odds on his side.

I introduced to all my “Home Selling Systems” one evening at his home. I showed him how we were able to attract buyers for our listings as we multiplied the number of showings by 10 in just the first 7 days we had it listed. 

The home was SOLD soon after in just in 27 days, and he  was able to save thousands of dollars on commission fees by “NETTING” more money at the closing table.

Should you decide, at any time, that you could benefit from the expertise and skills of a professional Real Estate Agent with a proven track record of success and marketing systems ready to promote your home..

I’m only a phone call away (301-246-0001) 

You are under no obligation and I can assure you that our meeting will allow you to explore your options even more so. . .


Should you use a ZESTIMATE to sell your house? 

 I also invite you to watch this video and see how a Zestimates may or may not help you sell your house…
