What Types of Seller or Buyer Queries Do La Grange Park Licensed Brokers and Realtors Handle?
Can you sell your home âAs Isâ?
You're likely asking this question because you just don't want to be bothered with fixing everything little thing in your home before you list it for sale, right? Or perhaps you're aware of some major needed repairs such as a new roof being needed or your A/C is on its last leg or any other number of things that fall along with this thinking. If I'm right, and this is what your thought process is then you must understand that your home will have to be appropriately priced knowing repairs are needed. If you're good with this, then we can stop right now and go on to the next question you've been afraid to ask a Realtor.
Yet, you can still sell your home "As Is" while fixing all the little things before selling, so any home Buyer will not nickel and dime you for a price reduction. As basically, this is what it boils down to when you don't fix what is needed to be repaired. If a Buyer's Home Inspection reveals defects, they'll want a price reduction for them having to make the repairs themselves. However, at the same time, if you reveal the defects upfront in a written property disclosure, the Buyer will know the defects are already priced into the home and it will be up to your skilled Realtor to ensure the price already accounts for the needed repairs. Make sure your Realtor is going to bat for you.
Should i sell my empty house or staged?
Be creative and save your Vendor some dollars!!
If you walked through a staged home, you would know it. A staged home can be defined as a home that has been set up in a layout that appeals and attracts the eye. Often when a home is staged furniture, declarations, paintings, and general dĂ©cor is brought into the home to make the home as appealing as possible and ready to be sold.
Arguably the biggest benefit to staging a home when selling is the ability to paint a picture for potential buyers. Staging is a great way to allow a buyer to envision themselves in the home. If you've walked through a model home before that was staged you likely notice the comfortable sofas, beautiful mirrors on the walls, and silk plants throughout the home. This is a great way to help make a potential buyer feel comfortable in an empty home by creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
When is the best time to sell my home?
You may have heard the term "seller's market" before. In a seller's market, demand for homes rises, and sellers can get a lot more money for their house. The following factors may contribute to a seller's market:
The possibility of interest rates rising in the future
Other economic factors may contribute to the market. Some cities may experience a seller's market while others simultaneously experience a buyer's market. Reach out to a local real estate agent in La Grange Park for more information about the current state of the market.
What are home inspections?
Before you buy a home, one of the things you should do is to have it checked out by a professional home inspector. Yes, we can hear your objection: "Buying a home is expensive enough as it is! Why would I choose to fork over hundreds more if I'm not required to?" In this article, we'll delve into what a home inspection can reveal and whether it's worth the investment.
The Home Inspection Contingency
Home inspections provide an opportunity for a buyer to identify any major issues with a home before closing. Your first clue that a home inspection is important is that it can be used as a contingency in your contract with the seller. This contingency provides that if a home inspection reveals significant defects, you can back out of your purchase offer, free of penalty, within a specific timeframe. The potential problems a home can have must be pretty serious if they could allow you to walk away from such a significant contract.
In some situations, realtors are also known to include home inspection clauses in contracts, such as those for a newly built residence. In new home construction, inspections generally cover:
a.Foundations: Checking before the concrete is poured (once poured, there is very little that can be corrected).
b.Pre-drywall: Checking the structure and mechanics before the drywall is laid.
c.Full inspection: A full walk-through is performed of the completed home.
