Bedroom communities

A commuter town is an urban community that is primarily residential, from which most of the workforce commute out of the community to earn their livelihood. Most commuter towns are suburbs of a nearby metropolis that workers travel to daily, and many suburbs are commuter towns. A commuter town may also be known as a bedroom community, a dormitory town, or less commonly a dormitory village. These terms suggest that residents sleep in these neighborhoods, but mostly work elsewhere. An excellent example of a commuter town is Saratoga in Santa Clara county of California. It is an upper class bedroom community and the ideal place to live in, one of the best in the United States. It has some of the most breath-takingly beautiful homes. If you are looking for homes for sale in Saratoga, the ideal real estate agent is Dale Warfel of Keller Williams Realty.

Commuter towns like Saratoga differ from suburbs slightly. As a general rule, suburbs are developed in areas adjacent to main
employment centers, such as a town or a city, but may or may not have many jobs locally, whereas bedroom communities have few local businesses and most residents who have jobs commute to employment centers some distance away. As it is understood, commuter towns are residential communities. Hence, they give their residents the maximum amount of pleasure in terms of residential benefits. There are some great communities to settle in. There may not be big city malls or things of that sort, but there are no traffic jams or overpopulated markets where it would take forever to finish one’s errands.

Dale Warfel who is a realtor in San Jose specializes in homes for sale in Silicon Valley and its communities, which Saratoga is a part of. He also has some
great properties for sale in Almaden Valley, houses for sale in Milpitas and properties for sale in Blossom Valley.

Listing Contracts

A listing contract is a contract between a real estate broker and a seller or sellers of real property to give the broker the right to offer the property for sale. The contract is often referred to as a listing agreement. It is quite important in the process of selling one’s home. Only then would the real estate agent put the home for sale on his listings or multiple listing services.

There are several different types of listing contracts, but very few of them are used. The ‘exclusive right to sell’ is the most common, but there is the ‘open listing’, the ‘exclusive agency listing’, and the ‘one-time show’. The ‘open listing’ is mostly used by people trying to sell their home by themselves but who are also willing to work with real estate agents. Basically, it gives
a real estate agent the right to bring buyers around to view your home. Another common method is ‘exclusive agency’ listing, which allows an agent to list and market your home, guaranteeing them a commission if the house sells through any real estate agent or company. It also allows sellers to seek out buyers on their own. However, this method is unpopular.

Most of us are definitely unfamiliar with the different types of listing contracts. It is obvious that the right real estate agent would be the best guide. For example,
Dale Warfel of Keller Williams Realty specializes in the Santa Clara County of California. Dale possesses all the knowledge of real estate in Santa Clara County and can be the best advisor for those who are looking for homes for sale in Santa Clara.

Benefits of buying your own home

Buying a home is an excellent investment and probably the largest one that most people make. The home is the home-owner’s pride. It is the best investment because, as a fairly general rule, homes appreciate at an average of about five percent a year. It also depends on the county or state where you plan to buy a property. And if you cannot pay the entire purchase value of the home in full, you could always mortgage. And if you mortgage, the rate of return on investment will virtually be higher since you paid less at first.

All of the interest and property taxes you pay in a given year can be deducted from your gross income to reduce your taxable income. Property taxes are deductible, too. Whatever property taxes you pay in a given year may also be deducted from your gross income, lowering your tax obligation. When you rent a place to live, you can certainly expect your rent to increase each year. Whereas, if you get a fixed rate mortgage when you
buy a home, you have the same monthly payment amount for thirty years. When you rent, you are normally limited on what you can do to improve your home. You have to get permission to make certain types of improvements. That is not the case in your own home.

You have to make sure that you buy the right house. The right real estate agent is of immense help. For example, if you want to buy a home anywhere in the Santa Clara County in California, you can contact
Dale Warfel of Keller Williams Realty. Dale specializes in homes for sale in Silicon Valley, properties for sale in Willowglen and houses for sale in Almaden Valley and its communities. So if you are looking for homes for sale in Los Gatos or homes for sale in Monte Sereno or homes for sale in Campbell or anywhere else in Silicon Valley, Dale Warfel is the right man to approach.

Mortgaging your home to own it

Most people want to own their own home. To do that, you need that sum of money to invest in. Investing in a home is the largest investment they make. But many people who want to own their own home do not have that initial sum of money to invest. In order to get that sum, one has to save money and wait till that sum is available. But how long does one have to wait? And besides, keeping money for a long time is a bit insecure.

There is a better alternative- mortgaging. A home buyer or builder can obtain a loan from a financial institution to
purchase a home, using that very home for security. Some people, especially banks use the term ‘house loan’ which is the same as mortgaging. The main difference between paying off the loan and paying rent is that the home is yours if you mortgage it. Whereas, the home you live in will be the house-owner’s and not yours in the latter situation. Hence it is always better to own your own home.

It is important however, to make sure that you have found the ideal home to buy and live in, as buying the wrong home is a costly mistake. For this, there are helpful realty agents available to guide you through finding the right home and finalizing the deal. They even help you securing the house loan. For example, the Santa Clara County in California has some excellent communities that make a wonderful atmosphere and place to live.
Dale Warfel of Keller Williams Realty is a realtor in San Jose who specializes in homes for sale in Santa Clara county. He also has helped people securing loans with the right interest rates- not more than 6%, in relation to the present economical status.

Selling your home

If you own a home and want to move to a new location, you have to sell your home and probably buy a new one. But to sell your home, you need to do some things.

If you don’t get the best deal for your home, you would regret it later on.

You cannot get an extremely good deal by yourself. This is where real estate plays a huge role. Once your home is entrusted to a real estate agent in Santa Clara and other places, it becomes a realty home. Realty homes have much more potential for selling.

Buying a home without making mistakes

Buying a home is probably the largest investment most people make. But most of the time, the decision of which home to buy is made without adequate preparation and thought. Any mistake made while buying a home could be very expensive as you cannot undo it so easily, and a home is not something you can buy every month or so. Moreover, one must buy a home that has a good possible resale value so that there is no loss in the long run.

Buying a home is a complex transaction. It involves searching for available homes, selecting the location, inspecting the home, negotiating the price and so on till the deal is finalized. Especially when it comes to finding the ideal home, many people commit mistakes such as relying on oral agreements and not in writing, or making unconditional and irrational offers. Thankfully in the modern times, buying a home has becomes an easier task largely due to real estate agents. They have become a boon to people looking out for homes for sale. One could look for one’s ideal home in the mls listings of a realtor. These real estate consultants in San jose and other places are also extremely helpful in finalizing the deal to the maximum advantage of both parties. It is no wonder that the homes that sell now are real estate sales.

A good example of a real estate agent is
