  12. How will you advertise my home for sale if I listed with you?

    First, we take about 50 pictures from your property within 24 hours after you sign the listing agreement. Less than 48 hours, we post the property on the MLS (multiple listing services) for the greater Los Angeles and Beverly Hills area. We will publish QR (quick response code) so every one can see your property on their mobile handset phones. Then, we order a for sale sign that will be place in front of your property (optional for you). We will print flyers and post cards with your property information and distribute them in the area near your property. Our agents will host open house at weekends to show your property to potential home buyers.

  14. What are the steps if I decided to buy my first home?

    Congratulations on your decision buying your first home in. Now that you decided to buy a home, first you need to obtain a loan pre-approval. Thus, we recommend you contact your banker and ask for a pre-approval letter. A pre-approval will enable you to have an opinion of your purchase price affordability and helps us to find the properties that are in accordance with your budget. Also, it will help to the prospect seller that you are a ready, willing, and able buyer.

  15. Buyer or the Seller pay for the home and termite inspections?

    Well, even though the cost for inspections on the purchase agreement is negotiable between the buyer and seller, the buyer must do the inspection and make sure the seller does not have any influence on the report. This does not automatically imply the seller may influence the inspectors. However, it gives the buyer and buyer's broker the comfort that the inspections have been done properly. The seller's Agent usually is present during the inspections.

    The fee for inspection may be paid by the seller, and that does not create a conflict of interest. However, we think it will be more comforting to the buyer or the buyer's broker to choose their preferred inspection company.
