Full offer or negotiate

Answer
If you are working with an experienced agent who understands the comparable properties in the area you will have a better understanding of what you should offer. Even in this buyers market in some areas you are seeing multiple offers on well priced properties. You should be taking all the variables that make this house the right one for you and your family into consideration. Ask your self or your agent a lot of questions, have the correct inspections and make sure your financing is in order. If you want to negotiate be ready to commit!

is cosigner still on the lease if renter did not give the 60 day notice to vacate and roll to monthl

Answer
If you are the co-signer you will need to get the release in writing from the landlord. When a lease goes  to a month to month it is understood that all the initial terms of the lease convey. You should be able to find your state landlord tenant handbook on line.

Carpet vs laminate flooring?

Answer
There are better ways to save money- spend money on a good floor it will wear well and save you in the end! If this is a rental property carpet is not the way to go- there are so many new flooring options like pre- finished bamboo that looks great and is the real deal!

What are your favorite open house techniques

Response
Personally I stay away from the candles. It always seems to say " something is being covered up" elegant dining room candles in a candelabra  or a bathroom candle is pleasant but a real odor from a scented candle screams cover-up! I like to make sure the lighting, temperature is right on! As a customer , just like when you are walking into a luxury hotel, you want to be greeted with a smile, guided and have your questions answered thoroughly. The open house is about customer service for both the buyer and the seller. Some agents feel open house are out dated? I think it is still on of the best ways to give  the buyers a relaxed moment to view the property. Getting reactions from customers walking through a home is great information to give back to your seller. It may help when you need to discuss staging , cleanup and price reductions with your sellers. The information collected at an open house is priceless!

Is staging getting results?

Response
Staging is one of the most important factors in getting buyers in the door & to the closing table in this market BUT clearing clutter is just as important.   As a seller, if you can put aside your personal items to allow the new buyer to see the home & themselves living in the home - you will create that emotional connection for the buyer & that is the exact motivation that is getting buyers to the closing table. Clearing clutter is a low cost idea that has big big results!
