Real Estate Articles for Sellers And What They Need To Know! We've had a long spell where the most challenging aspect of selling a home was putting up the For Sale sign. As soon as it was up, owners could expect a flood of traffic. Buyers, many desperate to find anything remotely satisfactory in their price range, eagerly bid on what was available. It was common for many of them to make offers above asking prices. 

Times are slowly changing but changing nonetheless. Increasingly, buyers want more than plain homes that are outrageously expensive. So, sellers! Listen up! If you still want to get the most money for your homes in the fastest time possible, a revised strategy may be in order, but what! The following articles provide answers.

Ways To Increase The Value of Your Home  There are ways to make minor improvements that don’t cost much that significantly increase a home’s value. Some are do-it-yourself modifications, while others may require the services of a contractor. Read about them if you are interested in spending a little but profiting a lot. >>>

Curb Appeal  I increased the marketability of one of my homes while also increasing its value by doing some simple things that didn’t cost much money. I repainted the trim of my house, pressure washed my privacy fence and sidewalk, added flowering plants to my outside planters, kept the yard maintained, and got a lot more money for the house than I initially thought I could get. It’s your turn now!

When Your House Does Not Sell As much as an owner and agent would like to pretend they don’t know why a house or listing doesn’t sell, the truth is, at some level, they do know! Now, how they respond is an entirely different matter. Do they make necessary modifications and adjustments to address the reasons, or do they continue to ignore the deficiencies? What do you do?

Why Great Homes Do Not Sell Even luxury and high-end homes don’t sell, and sometimes the issues are the same as with more moderately priced homes; deferred maintenance, obsolete design, overpricing for the neighborhood, and unreasonable expectations. So, what can be done to make these properties more marketable? Those are some of the issues, and here are some answers.

Selling FSBO I believe that every owner gives at least a passing thought to selling their home without an agent. And why not? On a $400,000 sale, assuming a 6-7% commission, they could save $24,000 - $28,000! But I think we can agree that an agent’s fee is worth paying when you don’t know how to sell it yourself. However, it’s doable and starts with preparation. Here’s what you need to know.

Real Estate Tips For Selling  Every home and seller is different, and so goes the challenges of selling real estate. But there are some shared commonalities amongst homes that sell; many are common sense things. Something as simple as making the home smell good when people are viewing it can make all the difference in the world to a prospective home-buyer. What else might you be overlooking?

Home Warranties   An attractive feature of new homes includes new home warranties on appliances and major systems, like heating, air conditioning, and roof. Often overlooked with older homes is an option to offer Home Warranty Plans for used homes. These plans can set buyers at ease when buying older homes while adding value to the property. If you’re not offering one, you’re handicapping yourself!

Easements, Right of Ways & Restrictive Covenants  Arguably, easements and restrictive covenants are critical aspects of buying a home. And while homebuyers may not know to ask about them, sellers and their agents must disclose them. Failure to do so can result in sales derailing faster than snow cones melting in a desert! Still, many sellers are hard-pressed to precisely tell you what theirs are without researching them. How about you?
