I am excited and proud to feature our colleague, friend, and fellow networker Shannon Dupper with Realty Executives. She has graciously given us a short post introducing herself and giving a few tips to people considering buying or selling a home. I couldn’t imagine a better person to kick off our inaugural guest feature — we provide the insurance, she gets them in their homes.
I’ve had the privilege of watching Shannon move into real estate. She has set herself up for success by expeditiously building an incredible client base and pairing with a remarkable team.
The Symbiosis of a Home Transaction
Hi! I am Shannon “Super” Dupper from Realty Executives as an Independent Agent. In my previous years, I happily was a Property Manager who helped renters find a home that fit their needs. Now with the suggestion of my previous tenants, I assist those in need of buying and selling their homes all over the Nation. As a licensed Realtor, I love being able to uphold the highest standards with Integrity, Honesty, and I am proud to provide my Fiduciary duty to my clients.
Each person is unique! I assist by identifying their needs and wants quickly and efficiently by listening to what is important to them, I enjoy improving negotiations to get them the best they deserve and I do my best to alleviate the stress by setting the expectations upfront while mapping out the process with ease.
Some tips for a renter considering to purchasing a home is to buy right now. Many mortgage companies have informed me that the rates are going to start increasing. What does that mean for next year’s outlook? That means it could be positive for the general economy as a whole, but that might mean that some people may have more trouble qualifying without a down payment. Although, no one really knows for sure what future may hold. What we do know is that buyers may have the great advantage to purchase more home at a lower price with the potential to get fixed into a low rate.
Tips for sellers.. Pricing your home to sell would be the largest piece of advice I can suggest! In addition, consider an incentive (such as including a home warranty) since thirty-seven percent of Sellers offered an incentive in 2015 (from the official magazine for the National Association of Realtors). Those sellers who are open to negotiate in addition to the price find more success in obtaining the buyer.
Shannon goes above and beyond for her clients and has an amazing set of resources and knowledge at her fingertips. Her real estate website with Realty Executives be found here.
