Things to Know Before Buying or Selling a Home

Things to Know Before Buying or Selling a Home

Kids all over the country are preparing for a new school year, and while the thought of another season of homework doesn’t sound very fun, there’s no doubt that the most prepared students are usually the most successful. The same can be said about home buyers and sellers. Being prepared when buying or selling real estate can save you money and help you make more logical decisions instead of acting on emotional impulse.

Before You Buy

If you’re thinking about buying a home or investment property, your first step should be to give us a call so we can walk you through the process from the very start.  There are some other steps you should take to ensure a smooth transaction:

  • Save up.  It’s never too early to start saving money for a down payment, as the larger your savings, the more options you will have.
  • Determine your needs.  How much space do you need? How far are you willing to commute to and from work?  Is a particular school district important to you?  Does your family have any restrictions, such as avoiding flights of stairs?  Once you have a general idea of your criteria, we can help you fine-tune your goals and even set up an automated home search which will notify you by email as soon as potential properties that fit your parameters are listed.  We will tour as many homes and neighborhoods as you need to compare your top contenders and make a well-informed decision about your dream home.
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage.  If you do not already have a lender, we can recommend some to you.  During the pre-approval process, your credit score will be checked and your house purchase budget will become clearer. You should also refer to our Tips For A Smooth Mortgage Process early on in this journey.

Making an Offer

Once we find your dream home, we’ll walk you through all the steps of making and negotiating an offer and getting through the appraisal, inspections and repairs stages, as well as the final walk-through and closing, and all the details and deadlines in between.

Before You Sell

Again, your first step should be to call us if you own real estate that you’d like to sell.  We will meet at your property during a time that is convenient for you, so we can discuss your goals and timeframe.  At that time, we’ll explain to you our proven marketing strategy to get the best possible results from the sale of your property.  Some other steps you can take are:

  • Clean, clean, and clean some more.  Your property should look clean, smell clean and feel clean to prospective buyers as soon as they walk in.  To help you get your property ready to be listed, refer to our Preparing Your Listing checklist.
  • To update or not update?  Many clients feel that major improvements or updates need to be made before listing their property for sale, in order to be competitive. We can discuss these projects with you and help you prioritize which improvements are likely to net the best returns for your money.  We also have a long list of trusted vendors we can recommend for any recommended improvements.
  • Stay calm.  We’ve compiled a couple of checklists to help you during your listing period and to prepare for showings to potential buyers, which will help keep you focused and organized.

Navigating Negotiations

Of course, we will review any offers with you and negotiate the price, conditions, contingencies and other terms that best suit your goals, and we’ll be acting in your best interest at all times.

We’re here to help make the process as simple and stress-free as you would like it to be. Whether you’re ready to list tomorrow or if you think you might buy or sell next year, we’re always happy to help you prepare and answer questions you may have.

4 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster

4 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster

4 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster

4 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster | MyKCM

Since June of last year, we have seen an increase in the inventory of homes for sale month per month. Every spring and summer, the inventory increases because people want to sell their home. For those with children, they may want to be in their new home for the beginning of the school year.

If you are one of those sellers, you may find these 4 tips helpful in getting your home sold more quickly.

1. Make buyers feel at home

Declutter your home! Pack away all personal items like pictures, awards, and sentimental belongings. Make them feel like they belong in this house! According to the Profile of Home Staging by the National Association of Realtors,

“83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.”

Not only will your house spend less time on the market, but the same report mentioned that,

“One-quarter of buyers’ agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered between 1 – 5%, compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged.”

2. Keep it organized

Since you took the time to declutter, keep it organized! Before the buyers show up, pick up toys, make the bed, and put away clean dishes. It is also a good idea to put out some cookies fresh from the oven or a scented candle. Buyers will remember the smell of your home! According to the same report, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms to stage in order to attract more buyers.

3. Give buyers full access

One of the top four elements when selling your home is access! If your home is available anytime, that opens up more opportunity to find a buyer right away. Some buyers, especially those relocating, don’t have much time available. If they cannot get into the house, they will move on to the next one.

4. Price it right

As we mentioned at the beginning, more inventory coming into the market guarantees there will be some competition. You want to make sure your home is noticed. The key to selling your house in 2019 is ensuring it is Priced to Sell Immediately (PTSI). That way, your home will be seen by the greatest amount of buyers and will sell at a great price before more competition comes to market!

Bottom Line

If you want to sell your house in the least amount of time at the best price with as little hassle as possible, a local real estate professional is a useful guide. Call us today to find out what you need to do to sell your home more quickly.
