Question #2 How can I attract potential home buyers?
Answer 2# Home buyers ultimately determine, by supply and demand, what the value of your home, asking the right price is crucial to attracting potential home buyers. Buyers get another first impression through curb appeal. The way your home looks determine whether they’ll step inside view your home. Other methods of sprucing up your home both inside and out to attract potential home buyers include:
- Keep the front of your home clean and maintained
- Cleaning dust and dirt inside your home
- Removing excess furniture to make rooms look larger
- Maintain an inviting atmosphere with soft music and pleasant aromas
- Make small repairs to loose doorknobs, dirty air filters, and burned-out light bulbs
- Open blinds, shades, and curtains to let in the light
Question #3 Do I need to stage my home?
Answer #3 Every home or condo can benefit from home staging. The idea of the staging process is to make a home more neutral rather than personal, which allows potential home buyers to envision themselves living in your home.
Question #4 Why Do I Need To Be Pre-Qualified?
Answer #4 Sellers often require a pre-approval or proof of funds letter to be submitted with an offer to purchase; this is to give assurance that a buyer has the ability to purchase the property before putting a property under contract. Getting pre-approved for financing also benefits the buyer because if pre-approved, a buyer can be confident that he or she will have the purchasing power to complete a transaction before becoming emotionally attached to a property or spending money on inspections, only to find out later that he or she cannot qualify for financing.
Question #5 Do You Need To Have An Appraisal?
Answer #5 Usually if you need a loan to purchase a property a lender will require an appraisal. This is done so the lender can be confident the property is worth the amount it is lending to a buyer. The appraisal is usually ordered by the lender and is conducted as part of the mortgage financing.
If you are purchasing a property without financing, you are not required to order an appraisal but an appraisal done by a qualified appraiser will give you peace of mind that you are paying an appropriate price for the home.
Question #6 Do you need to have a inspection?
Answer #6 Most lenders require inspections if you are going to need to finance the purchase but cash buyers are not required to get obtain an inspection. However, it is highly recommended to have an inspection done right away. For a relatively small amount of money, a home inspection can uncover any major defects that may be present in a home that may not even be known to the seller. This gives a buyer the power of knowledge so that the buyer can either negotiate with the seller to make necessary repairs or possibly even walk away from the deal if the problem is too difficult to cure.
