Home Sellers where are you???

We need sellers!!! Now that spring is almost here and rates are very low buyers are out in force! I just put an offer for a home buyer that had 14 offers on it in one day! Ouch, talk about competition. So what can you do to get your home ready for the spring selling season? Gain some knowledge and gain an advantage with my ideas and the link (5 ways spring home sellers can gain an edge ) for a few more.

Here are some simple upgrades to increase your home’s value for my clients

You don’t have to spend $$$ thousands of dollars $$$ to add value to your home.

Change fixtures and hardware. This adds appeal and newness quite easily. If you’re selling your home a new mirror in the bathroom and new fixtures can make a huge difference. Upgrade sinks, showerheads and faucets to newer water conserving models in sleek finishes. Sorry folks but brass is dated and out! Make sure all light bulbs work! If wanting a remodel on a larger scale replace cabinets, windows and doors. New molding that’s been painted also really pops out.

Declutter. Clean and organize storage areas including the attic and garage. Look for Rubbermaid bins on sale, fill them up and stack neatly in the garage or a closet. You will be clean and ready to move. This is also an ideal tip before a showing your home to a prospective buyer. Each family should have their own bin and before a showing just quickly put everything that is out in. Believe it or not organization adds tremendous value. Keep kitchen and bathroom counters clear. Cleanliness gives your home more room and a newer feeling that a buyer will appreciate.

Replace appliances. From the stove, refrigerator, dishwasher to the washer and dryer (if leaving) upgrading appliances to newer energy efficient models adds instant value and convenience not to mention Earth friendly.

Spiff up landscaping. Ever hear of curb appeal? An ugly front yard can torpedo your home’s value. Add flowers to add color. A study was done on homes for sale in which red flowers were used on the front door step. These homes sold faster and were more appealing to the client. You can also add path lighting for style and safety. Dust off the exterior. Gutters, siding and windows are often forgotten. Clean them! Crud cutter is wonderful for cleaning off gutters and getting the grime off. Also, make sure everything is properly sealed and in good shape. It looks better and helps conserve energy.

The more you do prior to selling the less the buyers will ask for in an inspection. Preventative maintenance is one of your biggest selling advantages. If not it will become a costly nightmare. What you may have been able to do yourself now has to be done by contractors; as all receipts are needed with documentation in the middle of the selling process. Not to mention you are trying to meet deadlines and make the buyers happy so they don’t just completely walk away from the transaction.

Let me give you an example: I was helping a seller of mine prepare his rental house for putting on the market. I gave them a hand out sheet to go over and check all main components plus attics, crawl space, roof ect. Even with all my advice they did not feel it necessary to check the crawl space. Huge mistake on this one. There was standing water in the crawl space and even though he paid thousands of dollars to rectify the problem it didn’t matter the buyer’s walked. The repairs had to be done and documented then we had to disclose to a new buyer. He ended up coming down $5000 and paid at least $4000 in repairs. DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

Finally let my team assist you in the process and we will get your home SOLD, SOLD, SOLD!

 

Great news for those who had a bankruptcy

 Short and Sweet Real Estate News

 

The economy was very tough a few years back and I have met many that went through some very hard times but now have made their way back are financially stable, secure and ready to move on and plant roots again. It was so hard to have to tell these potential home buyers that unfortunately they were not able to purchase a home and had to wait. 

But there is now some great news!!  

You are no longer held to the 7 year foreclosure wait requirement!

There is of course still waiting requirements but they are more lenient.

  • 4- Years from Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Discharge
  • 2 years from Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Discharge or 4 years from Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Dismissal

 VA Short sales- Now 1 year from completion was 2 years

Fannie Mae Short Sales– 4 Years from completion date

FHA– 3 Years from completion

USDA– 3 Years from completion date

As always check with your lender as these are only guidelines and different banks, brokers and mortgage companies will have some of their own programs.

I hope this helps and brings some families closer to their dream of owning a home again.

30 Offers on one house???

Yep I am not kidding! See this house?

What a day yesturday! Put in an offer on a home in a HOT neighborhood for one of my investor clients and we were one of 30 offers! Yes, 30 I could not believe it!

I have been really rocking lately on getting homes for my clients in multiple offer situations but today I was humbled and reminded sometimes you can do everything possible and still not be the winning bid. I dont know exactly as of yet but, was told the winning offer was WAY over asking! It must have been because ours was too.

Sometimes this market is so crazy and just goes to show you what I have been saying lately there are more people looking earlier this year than I have seen in the last few years. So if you are in the market get out there soon because the best deals go very fast.

Or if your considering selling give me a call for a FREE Price Analysis anytime!

Here are some recent listings from my office and more coming. Its getting busy!
