You decided to sell your house, know what?
There are Three Essentials for Selling Your Home Faster & for the Most Amount of Money.
- Offer Home Warranty to the Buyers (typically one year) Gives buyer assurance that if any issues come up, they will get fixed for a nominal fee. A Licensed professional will take care of the problem. The buyers aren’t worried about having to come up with additional money later on that they don’t have. Home Warranties typically cover appliances, like microwave, stove, range, dishwasher, garbage disposal, refrigerator. Water Heater, AC/Heat. If the house has a pool for an additional cost, the home warranty could cover the pool equipment.
2. Have all Disclosures In-Hand Before Going on MLS (TDS, SPQ, Natural Hazard) Saves you time and money. Less chance of buyer’s remorse or fallout. It keeps buyers away who may have problems with any disclosed items. Over-disclosing is the best thing you could do; it protects you if any issues were to come up after the sale of the property. Don’t be afraid of disclosing because it may scare buyers away. You want the right buyer for your house.
3. Be as Flexible as Possible With Showings and Have the Home SHOW Ready. You want your home sold, so make it as available as possible. Don’t allow a buyer to fall in love with another home when they could have fallen in love with yours first. Many buyers stop after they found “the one”; Be sure your home smells nice and is clean. If a buyer sees a home that is dirty and un-kept, they will assume you have not properly maintained your home. The first impression counts if the house smells, it will cause the buyers to want to leave, even if the floor plan is ideal for them. Especially when you have pets, have a strategy in place with your agent(partner) to make sure you have the window that you need to make sure the house is show-ready.

Being Transparent and Taking Care of Any Issues or Problems Before Listing. Buyers and their agents welcome the transparency in purchasing a home from a seller who has taken the time to be as diligent as possible in fixing any issues, as well as fully disclosing any previous issues. Also, it ensures that any problems, issues, or concerns are dealt with prior to going into escrow so that you don’t waste your precious time, resources, and money.
