The expression “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” is absolutely true when it comes to selling a home. When selling a home you must be sure that your home presents itself in the best possible light. Making sure clutter is at a minimum, freshly painting rooms, installing new carpeting, or ensuring odors are non-existent are just a handful of things that should be done before listing your home for sale.
Assessed value is not the same as market value or appraised value. There are many homes that could be sold for significantly more than an assessed value and others that maybe sold for significantly less. The assessed value of a home is used for the purpose of taxes in your local municipality. The assessed value of a home is multiplied by the local tax rate to determine what your yearly taxes are. The assessed value has no impact on how much your home is worth to a potential buyer in the marketplace.
When selling a home, it’s important you disclose to potential buyers anything you are aware of in your home. Nobody likes “getting the raw end of a deal” when it comes to buying a home, car, or anything for that matter. If you’re aware of defects with a roof, appliance, or home in general, you’re always going to be better off being honest and upfront. If you’re aware of defects, whenever possible, fixing them before going on the market is best. This can avoid potential issues and/or lawsuits once your home is under contract, after inspections, and even years after you have sold your home.
An inspection of the home comes after you’ve received an offer, but before closing. The inspection is requested by the buyer to give them a clear idea of the quality of the home and expose any potential issues before the sale is binding. The inspector will be a third-party contractor who provides an inspection report to the buyer. As a seller, your job is to provide the inspector access to the home. Your agent or the inspector should be able to provide you with a checklist of items to have ready in advance for the inspector. Inspections can last anywhere from 3 to 5 hours.
Some buyer’s decide when buying a home they would like to find a suitable property before selling their existing home. A sale contingency is a common contingency that sellers see in purchase offers. A sale contingency means that the potential buyer of a home must sell their existing home, before being able to purchase the “new” home.
Sellers are expected to leave behind any fixtures. These are things that are affixed to the house or landscaping in some way. For example, ceiling fans would be considered fixtures, while potted plants would not. To avoid any misunderstandings or conflicts, you should be clear about what will stay and what will go in your contract with the buyer.
