Real Estate Tips
Buying or Selling a home can be more than usually stressful.
For buyers, there are worries about finding the right price at an affordable price and securing the financing needed to make the purchase.
Sellers need to think about how to best present in the best possible light at a price that meets their needs and that buyers will pay. Sellers need to make sure that their home is as clean as they can get it.
If potential home buyers miss something chances are a home inspector won't and indications of poor maintenance can lower buyers offer.
Buyers need to be able to imagine themselves in the house with their stuff not surrounded by your stuff.
Sellers also need to pay attention to a home's bathrooms. In some cases, an outdated bathroom can kill a sale.
Finally, buyers are strongly encouraged to get pre-approved for a mortgage. This is not the same as being pre-qualified.
Listen to your agent and take the extra time required to get pre-approved. For one thing, it indicates that you are truly interested in buying and not just some tire-kicker.
I look forward to helping you with all your real estate needs.
