Michael J. Roza
Michael is a Bay Area/Peninsula native with 20+ years of experience in successfully settling families - individuals and investors buying and selling throughout San Mateo County and beyond.
Sellers Agent: In hiring Michael J. Roza to sell your home you will be offered far more than being listed with Compass a highly respected technology based Real Estate Brokerage dominating the local market and beyond in listings - sales from entry level to high - end luxury presenting each with the highest in quality marketing - maximum exposure online and off using industry leading cutting edge technology as well as Michael's Team - resources and a custom strategic plan tailored to your home to be sure to reach and impress all Buyers locally as well as globally!
Michael early in his career was trained to pitch the company and share his success in other sales to convince home sellers he's the best agent for the job but felt he wanted to do more to insure a selling client that in hiring him, their personal selling results with him as their agent were near guaranteed to be far greater so he added the offer to help prepare their home using his skills and experiences working for many years in residential - commercial construction.
" A home that Impresses will always sell for more than one that requires imagination."
It's a fact that most home sellers and their agents in preparing a home for the market focus mostly on appearance - cosmetics (Paint - Flooring - Staging) ignoring needed repairs - safety issues and deferred maintenance items that will show up on the property inspection report possibly giving the home a low rating for condition.
While a structural Termite - Dryrot report will show the costs to repair, a professional home inspection will not. Home inspectors are not at a loss in finding things to put in their inspection reports but some inspectors go overboard in describing the issues - repairs in a very negative manor that can alarm interested home buyers ruining their excitement - first impressions in how great the house looks.
Inspection reports that include repairs especially those deemed unsafe needing immediate attention can bring negotiations to the table that can potentially jeopardize or cancel a sale. Establishing unknown repair costs for negotiations usually means guessing that often leads to the Seller giving the buyer a highly padded cost repair credit or lowered sale price to keep the sale from canceling.
Michael's preparation process includes addressing known and efforts to find unknown suspected repair issues that a competent home inspector will find. Locating repair issues in advance of the home inspection benefits the home seller in having the option to complete repairs before the home inspection takes place. A home inspection with minimal repair findings boosts the confidence home buyers need to make their best offer!
Michael has prepared and sold many homes that need in excess of $15K in termite -dryrot repairs - very old roofs at the end of their useful life and other costly repairs a Buyer willingly accepts because the house didn't have a long laundry list of needed repairs listed on the home inspection. When selling a home needing known significant repairs a seller does not want to complete, it is always wise for the seller to procure a cost quote to provide prospective buyers prior to entertaining offers so they know upfront
EVERY HOUSE AND SITUATION ARE UNIQUE!
Michael's experience and market expertise have taught him, it's not a one size fits all in what is suggested or included in changing - repairing - improving - investing in dollars - when fixing up or improving a property for the market. While small repairs and improvements are suggested for most properties, the common denominator on all properties on completion is that they are hyper move in clean even if left with older updates and that the home inspectors report presents well.
Avoid the missed opportunity to profit further and sell with confidence by having Michael and his team prepare and market your home to impress both visually and functionally eliminating questionable repairs that are low cost to fix and installing inexpensive updates that greatly improve - enhance the overall appeal presenting the home at its best! The end result is a lot more Buyer interest and a home that can easily sell "AS IS" with minimal days on the market.
Michael may present more like a contractor but has you well covered in the listing - marketing and selling of your home for the highest price possible from the side of Compass and his skills as an agent but when you include his help in having your home prepared, get ready to be excited with the results on completion - the smooth - seamless process and in nearly all cases a higher than would have been sales price at closing.
Buyers Agent: Michael appreciates the opportunity to work with home buyers having represented many who returned to become his selling clients purchasing another home and sending him referrals of family and friends.
Many of Michaels Buyers are still in the home he helped settle them in and will never move so new Buyer clients are important to Michael. You can be assured you will be settled in the best house your money can buy working with Michael!
Michael highly recommends getting pre-approved ASAP for those who are ready to buy as it takes time to complete the process. In being pre-approved it's a lot more exciting knowing and focusing on what you can afford in addition to being ready to make an offer on the spot of walking into a home you want to call yours!
Michael will set up new listing alerts - updates for the property type and areas of interest in addition to searching for off - market properties contacting Realtors from all companies he knows who specialize in the the property type - areas you are seeking in addition to tapping into the Compass network where the potential is very high in finding an off market opportunity to buy a home before it goes on the market.
Michael provides an advantage for his home buying clients when it is time to put together an offer. Price and down payment are the primary strengths of an offer. If your offer falls a bit short in price even in a multiple offer situation your odds are higher in getting a counter with Michaels style of packaging and personally presenting offers.
Most listing agents request emailing of offers but Michael pushes to present his offer in person to the seller if possible but it is usually alone with the Listing Agent and they are always impressed.
The way an offer is put together speaks volumes in its ability to impress the Seller and the Listing Agent to endorse the offer which Michael never fails to do!
Michaels presenting in person allows for a more personal - clear presentation of your offer.
Michael has seasoned relationships with many home buying affiliates like title/escrow companies - banks - home inspectors - appraisers - insurance companies - home warranty companies and others endorsing only the best in the business.
Michaels goal is to earn your future business and referrals by working hard to exceed your expectations in both the purchase and the home buying process start to finish.
