New to Buying a Home? What Home Buyers Need to Know

Thinking about buying a home for the first time? There are several benefits to becoming a homeowner, but you shouldn’t make this decision lightly.

Keep these home buying tips in mind if you’re considering taking the plunge into homeownership:

  • Talk to a real estate agent. Friends and family members mean well, but they might not offer you the most realistic advice about purchasing your first home. An agent can help determine how much you can afford to spend and whether or not you’re financially ready to buy a home.
  • Think long-term. Since you’ll most likely be in your home for several years, think ahead when choosing a home. Look for one that’s near good schools, even if you doubt you’ll have kids, since this boosts your home’s value. You should also look for a home that doesn’t stand out too much from the rest, such as one that’s much bigger than other homes near it.
  • Take your time. You don’t have to rush into purchasing a home for fear that you’ll miss out on a good deal. Take your time, and make a wise decision instead.

Being part of a fast-growing and highly successful real estate franchise can make a huge impact on your career.

In 2013, we proved just how successful we can be by tripling our total closed transactions. How did we accomplish this? We did so by expanding our franchise into 12 exclusive-area locations that helped us end the year at an amazing 187 percent above our expected franchise revenue. As United Real Estate President Peter Giese explains, part of this success was due to the fact that we were able to expand into larger metro areas and build a reputation as a solid franchise opportunity for real estate professionals. Giese also mentions that 2014 will see the company building partnerships with high quality business partners, which will make additional opportunities available to brokers and agents. Many agents have joined United Real Estate thanks to our 100 percent commission business model, and they’ve helped push us well above our revenue goals.

Selling real estate can be a great way to make a living, especially if you are part of a large, nationally integrated real estate network that can provide you with the support and connections you need to succeed. United Real Estate agents have the benefit of just such a network.

Based in Kansas City, Missouri since 1925, there are now United Real Estate locations in many large cities across the nation and more are coming soon. Each location, and all the agents that work there, have access to the company’s proven marketing programs and their innovative technology based services.

Most often, real estate can be sold best by people who really know an area and the types of people who live in it. If you live in or close to any of the markets served by United Real Estate, including Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Washington, D.C., Kansas City, MO, Lexington, KY, Louisville, KY, Beverly Hills and Pasadena, you can enjoy the benefits of being part of a nationally recognized real estate company while staying close to home and selling in the area you know best.

Becoming part of a real-estate franchise has some definite advantages, but is the thought of paying a royalty fee on each transaction making you hesitant about joining? You don’t have to worry about missing out on 100% real estate commission when you join United Real Estate.

Our company doesn’t take any percentage of the commission our agents earn when clients buy or sell a home. Unlike other franchises, which sometimes demand up to a 50 percent split in commission, you’ll enjoy 100% real estate commission on every transaction. The only charges you’ll be dealing with are a $295 transaction fee per side and a $65 monthly office fee.

This arrangement also benefits clients. It motivates each agent to provide the best service available in order to earn that commission. It’s a win-win situation for our agents and their clients.
