Russ Ravary top home buyer tips

I have been a Metro Detroit real estate agent for over 20 years now. I am an individual real estate agent that has no team simply because I do not feel it is right for you to call me because of something you saw about me on the internet and then to push you off on a less experienced real estate agent. You call me you get me and all my knowledge and negotiating skills.

Here is my basic philosophy of life and real estate. I believe in treating people like I would want to be treated. What that means to you is that I am not going to pressure you to buy a home. At some point we will find the best home for you and your family. A home that fits your wants and needs. Of course sometimes you may have to compromise. Sometimes first time home buyers have unrealistic dreams. It’s my job to help you understand what is out there in your price range. To help you find one of the best homes in your price range. A home that you like and want.

Another part of my philosophy is sometimes you do not understand or know all about Metro Detroit real estate, the home buying process, and how some items affect a homes price and ability to sell it in later years. That is part of my job….to explain things you may not know about. I believe a informed, knowledgeable buyer is a smarter buyer and will make better decisions.

Lastly it is my job to explain about different items on the house and around the house. My job is to try to protect you the best I can. Whether it is a home for sale in Farmington Hills or a lake home in Waterford MI. What I mean by that is that if I see something that is a major issue I will point it out to you. I never want to be a Debbie downer and I do not want to ever disuade you from buying a house you like and love. After all it is your choice to buy a home no matter if I think it is good or not. BUT at the same time one of my jobs is to try to protect you when I see a home issue that will cost you lots of money or makes the house structurally unsound or unsafe.

Hire the best!

Here are some videos I have done on different things you should know about. The first one is about water issues in a basement and the mold that comes with it. Cleaning up mold is not a major issue, but the costs of fixing the water problem may be significant. If you have to put in an interior drainage system it may cost you anywhere from $8000 up to $25,000. However if it is only a crack in the wall or a leaking rod hole you may pay less than a $1000.

So the bottom line is just because there is water issues in the basement does not mean you should buy the home, but before you spend all that money on a home inspection it may be wise to have me reach out to the other agent and see if the seller would pay to fix the problem. If the seller says no then you have decide whether you want to move forward if you can afford to fix it yourself. If you cannot afford it then you should pass on the home.

This second video is just the basics on buying a home in Metro Detroit or anywhere. Simple tips to help you buy a home.

Lastly I will touch on busy roads. What it means to buy on a busy road. Sometimes home buyers dislike homes that face, or back, or are on the side of a busy road. The number one issue is the noise of a busy road. The second issue is usually the fear of their children or a pet running out into the busy road and getting hit by a car. Lastly the problem of pulling out onto a busy road and parking for guests.

There are thousands of homes on busy roads and they are all inhabited. People buy homes on busy roads. One of the benefits of buying a home on a busy road is that you get more home for the money. Homes on busy roads sell for a discount. So you may be able to get the home of your dreams that you could not afford off a busy road.
