We’re willing to bet you’ve probably never seen any prospective home buyers walking around inside a property for an open house with a big camera in hand, snapping away at every possible angle. The thought’s preposterous, because the website or flyer already has a detailed listing of photos! What’s the point?
The Point Is This: Not Even the Best Photos a Real Estate Agent Can Take Will Show Everything About an Open House
A house could be haunted. There could be black mold or something. And understand this: a real estate agent will do whatever he or she can to highlight the strengths of the property and minimize the weaknesses as much as possible.
But as a prospective home buyer, you still have the right to know absolutely everything about a property before even considering buying it. Even as an RTO possibility, that’s of specific importance; think about it.
You’re going to buy the darn thing! Why not make sure you’re investing in something worthwhile?
You Have to Understand That Some Homeowners/Tenants May Get Antsy
And they have every right to. Legally, a homeowner looking to sell the house, or even rent it out for RTO, might actually have a problem with a prospective home buyer snapping pictures of the portraits of the cat, dog, son, daughter or vase up the stairway, just as an example. But here’s the thing….
You, as a home buyer, have every right to know everything you need to know about the house. Therefore, your RTO consultant can work with the homeowner, and/or realtor in a situation, to ask the homeowner’s permission to take photos. And that’s something you can definitely work with.
A homeowner, home seller, or prospective RTO landlord needs to understand this — if you’re not letting your prospects know everything about your property, chances are you’ll lose buyers pretty quick.
It’s All About Negotiation and Consultation
That’s just another big reason why you’d need a rent-to-own consultant on your side. It’s hard enough working with an agent. Try just any homeowner working on finding a tenant for a rent-to-own. Try a homeowner working without the knowledge, know-how, and resources to make the right decisions!
In other words: SIGN UP FOR YOUR RTO CONSULTANT TODAY.
