Valeril, Maximizing the amount of money you will receive upon the sale of your home is actually very easy. But so few home sellers do the very little required to make sure the check they walk away from the closing table with is as large as possible. It is actually simple if you just do a little preparation. With anything real estate you should interview at least 3 real estate brokers and ask lots of questions. Yours is a huge financial decision and you want to avoid mistakes if at all possible. You will want to dig into why they are qualified to earn your business and how much they are going to charge you. Specifically, ask to see a few of their recent listings and look at the presentation; the quality of the photos and the written description. Find out how long it took that home to sell and how the sales price stacked up against other recent sales in the neighborhood. About 90% of all buyers will find your home on-line before contacting a Realtor and if your marketing has not grabbed their attention then there is a problem. Do a Google search for the broker before you even consider scheduling an interview. If they do not have a strong internet presence run the other way. Commissions are negotiable so use that knowledge to your advantage. It is critical that the broker you choose understands the real estate market and how it works. Ask them about inventory, pending home sales, price trends, seasonal market considerations. Not just in your region or your town but in your neighborhood and on your street. Each house plays by its own set of rules and they need to know those rules or run the other way. For instance, in the Northern Palm Beaches more single family homes sell in June than any other month and in January sales are the slowest. But if you are selling a condominium April is the month where most sales happen and September is the slowest. Ask questions, lots of them and get answers. Look them in the eye and focus on finding someone you trust as selling a home is a team effort and trust is the key ingredient. How well your home shows, both in professional photos and for showings, will play a significant role in what your home will sell for. Think of your home as Cinderella and you are dressing her for the ball. The prettier she looks the more time she will spend on the dance floor. You want your home to be the prettiest girl at the ball. Research, interview, ask questions, prepare and in no time at all you will have your home under contract.
Before Putting Your Home up for Sale Here are a few items to take care of before listing your home. This can make the sale process quicker and easier in the long run. Consider a pre-sale home inspection. An inspector will be able to give you a good indication of the trouble areas that will stand out to potential buyers, and you’ll be able to make repairs before open houses begin. Organize and clean. Pare down clutter and pack up your least-used items, such as large blenders and other kitchen tools, out-of-season clothes, toys, and seasonal items. Store items off-site or in boxes neatly arranged in the garage or basement. Clean the windows, carpets, walls, lighting fixtures, and baseboards to make the house shine. Get replacement estimates. Do you have big-ticket items that will need to be replaced soon? Find out how much it will cost to repair an older roof or replace worn carpeting, even if you don’t plan to do so. The figures will help buyers determine if they can afford the home, and they’ll be handy when negotiations begin. Locate warranties. Gather up the warranties, guarantees, and user manuals for the furnace, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and any other items that will remain with the house. It may seem like this task can be left until closing, but you don’t want lost paperwork or last-minute scrambling to cause the deal to fall through. Spruce up the curb appeal. Walk out to the front of your home, close your eyes, and pretend you’re a prospective buyer seeing the property for the first time. As you approach the front door, what is your impression of the property? Do the lawn and bushes look neatly manicured? Is the address clearly visible? What do you see framing the entrance, if anything? Is the walkway free of cracks and impediments?
