Crystal Snyder – Property Wholesaler

Crystal Snyder has only been buying and selling Real Estate for less than two years.  Prior to becoming an agent she received a certificate in Cosmetology, an Associates degree in Science and two degrees, one in Economics and the other in International Business.  She was working towards her Master’s Degree when she decided on a career in Real Estate.  When I met Crystal, she was a mother of 4 children but recently adopted a 5th child.

When she started in Real Estate, I suggested she find a niche rather than try to do everything.  Crystal took to working auctions and flipping contracts as if she had always been doing this.  She had immediate success, so much so that she discovered the “Secrets” of one of the major online Real Estate Auction sites.

She has privately mentored several new Investors.  One earned his first equity on a property after only 2 1/2 months after starting.  His share of the property was over $16,000.  Did I forget to mention he was only 18 years old with no Real Estate experience?

I will write about some of her most current closings in another blog.  Crystal’s company will be working directly with mine, Real Estate Services of SWFL to bring these properties to our Buyers’ lists.  She will also be teaching people how to duplicate her system.

Welcome back to Florida, Crystal.  Let’s help these new Investors get in one the Action!

Crystal

When Seller and Realtor Work Together

How many times in your Real Estate career has the perfect transaction happened to you?  How many Sellers  see their transaction go according to their plan?  It happened to me last month since I had the perfect seller.

The couple was a recommendation.  The husband moved to another state for a job opportunity and the wife stayed to get the house sold so she could join him.  Her priorities were to sell fast and to get the profit they needed to find another home.

Our first meeting at the house went great.  I asked what price she was hoping to get.  Her price in the mid-range of market prices.  We walked the house and discussed what would add value to make the house easier to sell.  We agreed on the following:

  • Remove the collectible collection to storage
  • Pack all personal items and move to storage
  • Paint the great room
  • Remove furniture from front porch
  • Pressure wash outside and driveway

A week later, she called to let me know everything was finished.  I drove over to take pictures, put sign in yasold signrd and a lockbox on the house.  The next morning, I put the listing on the MLS asking for 24 hour advance notice for showings.

About an hour later, an agent called ans said she was in neighborhood showing houses.  Realized there was 24 hour notice and wanted to make appointment.  I called the Seller and she said to send them over now.  House was ready and she was home.  She took a ride so she would not be home during showing.

Four hours later, we received an offer slightly higher than listing price.  She wanted to move ASAP, so naturally the offer was accepted.  Out Title company, Title-Junction in Fort Myers, took over.   The husband came down two weeks later to pack and move.  The Title company allowed Sellers to come over to sign forms to handle the long distance closing with ease.  The money was wired to their account and I received a “long distance hug” from the Sellers and now they are ready to move to the next phase of their life.

This was the transaction we all dream about.  It shows what can happen when Sellers and their Real Estate agent see the process as a team effort!

Did I mention, they owned 5 cats that had to be handled for showings.  Again, amazing performance by the Owner!

A Real Estate Epiphany

At a recent open house, two of the attendees sat down on the sofa and we talked for about an hour.  We talked briefly about the house but talked a great deal about the community, the amenities, the recreational activities and the school district.  This confirmed my feelings that I have had since I started selling Florida Real Estate 14 years ago.  I do not sell Florida houses.

I sell Florida Lifestyle!

Prospects do ask how many bedrooms, how many bathrooms, age of the hoStock Photo of a Happy Hispanic Family With Two Boys, Holding Hause, number of garages and square footage but then the real questions start:

  • How far to the Beach?
  • What size boat can I dock here?
  • Where is the closest golf course?
  • When is rainy season?
  • Does the community have an active recreational director?

This conversation is usually longer and much more detailed than asking about the actual features of the house.  The houses sell themselves, either it is right or not.  But the lifestyle needs exploring and is what today’s buyer feels is the most important aspect of their decision.

Like I tell my agents, be a part of your community.  Understand why people would want to live in your neighborhood.  Become a “Lifesyle Enthusiasist”  as well as a Real Estate Expert.  So, if thinking about buying in SW Florida, come join us for the lifestyle!
