ARE  BUYERS  SAYING, “YOUR  HOUSE  IS  TOO  RICH  FOR  MY  BLOOD”?

As the old saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. The same is true in selling your house.

So don’t make the costly mistake of putting the asking price too high. Or you will face the following:

  • Lose out on a potential buyer during the first two weeks the house is on the market when excitement of a new listing is at its peak.
  • A deal breaker when the house appraises for less than what you think it is worth.

 

SO YOU ARE SELLING YOUR HOUSE

Round up your house paperwork.

  • Prior year's tax bill, utility bills, sewer and water bills.
  • Find your declarations, covenants-conditions-restrictions, homeowner association documents.
  • Any assessments, surveys or plats.
  • Inspections/exterminations of any critters or pests or any environmental hazards.
  • Warranties on any appliances or major house systems, and/or any repair receipts for appliances or HVAC, plumbing or electrical systems .
  • List any items to be included or excluded from the sale.

Why a House Does Not Sell


TOP FOUR REASONS WHY YOUR HOUSE MAY HAVE DFFICULTY SELLING
  1. Price is too high
  2. Location---busy street, messy neighbors, high crime
  3. Condition---look at your home like a buyer; is it clean, tidy, maintained?
  4. Ease of showing---house should be ready to be shown anytime

House for Sale

THE  WORD  “HOUSE”  IS  A  NOUN,  SOOOO….

Remove your emotions when preparing your house for showings, Stop thinking of your house as a cozy home. Think of your house as a marketable entity, as such, it’s value and offers to purchase will be influenced by the way your home looks when buyers stop by to see it.

Buyers are looking for not only what is cool about a house, but they are also looking for things to nitpick over, and small problems that could become monsters.
