Benefits of Getting a pre-approval for a successful property transaction

Need to action a pre-approval?

For us at Keller Williams, it’s as simple as who you know to get things done quickly, effectively, and efficiently.  I always say that if you lose your dream home because you never got pre-approved, you will regret it for a long time.  Also, shopping in the wrong price range is just sad.  A seasoned agent will never accept an offer that is well below the asking price.  You would be wasting paper and someone’s time.  Click here to get assistance with your pre-approval.

Sellers become buyers as well

When you sell a property for a number of reasons you still need a place to stay.  And when you sell and hopefully get the proceeds of your sale paid to you, you still need to buy another property, hopefully with a nice deposit and a smaller bond.  That’s life.

Going shopping without a pre-approval

Generally, people start looking for their dream home before they put their home on the market.  The problem with this approach is that if you have not started marketing your property and you find your dream home and want to put in an offer you are stumped.  Firstly, we call it a suspension clause when a buyer can only obtain finance on the condition that they sell their home.  So when you go toe to toe with another buyer who has their home on the market, you lose.  Also, if you put in an offer and you are not pre-approved for finance there is always still a chance that you get qualified for less or don’t obtain finance in the end, you lose.  Generally, an offer to purchase will give you 14 days to conclude your finance and that’s the norm.  The problem is that when you sell a property this is often not discussed with your agents.  Get your agent to bring qualified buyers through or risk delays with the property transfer.  Get started with your pre-approval now.

Keller Williams uses the culture of the brand to generate success.  Keller Williams is also the largest franchised real estate brand in the world.  With almost 1,500 estate agents across SA, what makes Keller Williams different is our value system.  You see the Keller Williams business model is built on sharing.  Meaning that 1,500 agents across SA all have access to you your listing.  Every single one of these agents has buyers for properties that have either been on the market or are currently on the market.  We leverage these buyers across areas and the entire model is driven by a win-win solution for all, or the deal is off.  So, you don’t have 1 agent working on the sale of your property, you have almost 1,500 agents involved.  But you only deal with 1 agent.  And you only have 1 board on your pavement.
