Florida is the most popular state to be a realtor; there are over 20,000 people employed in the sector according to the May 2015 stats on BLS.gov. This is perhaps not surprising given the demographic of FL residents - snowbirds, tourists looking for lettings, seasonal workers, people who come on the promise of a job, find one and never leave.
One of those realtors in the Tampa, Florida area is Brett Maternowski, operator of the wonderfully-named website brettsellsproperty.com. Descriptive website names work so well as they instantly offer an idea of the purpose of the site. Yessir, Brett sells property. He works with buyers and sellers to smooth the often confusing and frequently irritating process of disposing of or acquiring a house.
No matter how many times an individual, couple or family goes through the process of buying and selling real estate, it never gets any easier. Sure, property veterans will know the answers to many of the tricky questions often posed by title or repair negotiations, but a realtor with experience will still be an essential part of the process.
Brett works with sellers to help sell their house fast, and with buyers to match them to the best houses for sale. Each sale starts with a free home evaluation, and a knock-your-socks-off fully SEO-optimized online real estate listing syndicated to as many other real estate websites as possible. With the power of big hitters like Yahoo, Trulia and Zillow behind his listings, Brett gives a boost to any houses for sale. Then from contract to closing, he will help sellers with any queries and issues which arise. A real estate deal is much more than simply putting together the listing. Duties of a realtor include accompanying the inspector and appraiser, accepting delivery of their reports, negotiating on any corrective action required and co-ordinating the lender documents. At least they do when Brett Maternowski is your realtor.
For buyers, Brett offers an enhanced listings search option where a simple query form will offer further information on listings of interest. He will also set up a custom search which alerts buyers to houses for sale matching their criteria.
Once the search is on, the next thing to do is to sort out finance. Brett is on hand to help buyers with this area too, as he can advise on the best mortgage to look for and which lenders to visit. Some areas of Brett’s real estate business apply equally to buyers and sellers. The final bit of the maze concerns the negotiations from contract to closing, a delicate balancing act between buyer and seller to ensure that both parties get what they expect out of the deal. The only way to ensure this part runs smoothly is to have all the necessary paperwork to hand at the right time, and Brett will help even the most inexperienced buyer to navigate the legalities around title insurance, inspections and repairs. It is at this stage that many buyers suddenly find out about covenants and restrictions that no one mentioned before, but which could be a deal breaker. With more than 50 tasks to undertake between contract and closing alone, this is usually the realtor’s busiest time, especially when selling houses fast is a unique selling point.
For a personal real estate service in the Hernando, Land O Lakes, Lutz, Tampa, and Wesley Chapel areas, sounds like Brett Maternowski might well be your man.
