Just Getting Into The Selling Process?
Here are a few quick tips that every home seller should keep in mind.
Know The Value Of Your Home And Price It To Sell.
It’s important to have solid footing from the start. We’ll connect you to folks that can get the answers you need. Find out how much your home is worth. Avoid the “stale-sale syndrome” that can leave your home on the market so long the listing gets stale. This can often happen from overvaluing the home. But don’t undervalue it either. Don’t be in such a rush to sell that you leave money on the table.
Know Your House.
You may think you know everything about your house, but a pre-sale home inspection can help discover potential problems early so that you can deal with them before they become major issues. Eliminate the surprise. If your home inspection does uncover problems, familiarize yourself with the disclosure laws to avoid future litigation. If you’re unsure of what you have to disclose, ask your real estate agent.
Avoid The Double-Mortgage Trap.
Try to put your home on the market as long as possible before buying a new one. If you do end up finding a house that you can’t wait to buy before selling your own, a bridge loan might be the answer. A bridge loan allows you to pay the down payment on a new home. You may also be able to get a home equity loan in order to help with the dual mortgage payments. But don’t go at it alone. Talk to a local mortgage pro so that you can truly understand all of your options and make an informed decision.
