Buyers want to see a clean home with lots of potential and few repairs. Before you sell, consider giving your entire house a deep clean and hiring an inspector to look for possible problems.
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:
No one wants their house to sit on the market for too long. A house may take anywhere between 30-45 days to sell depending on the market. If a market is hot enough, sellers could find their home off the market within a week. If the market is slow (or the house is overpriced,) the number could reach triple digits. Exposure, negotiations, and the condition of the home will also affect its ability to sell fast.
Whether you are buying or selling, you may find yourself doing some Internet research to see the value of homes in the area. But before you accept the first number, know that not all online calculators are accurate. Everything from new appliances to construction down the street can affect your home’s value.
The best way to figure out your home’s current value is to reach out to local professionals. Real estate agents or professional appraisers can give you an estimate through a consultation or competitive market analysis.
Again, online calculators are just a rough estimate of your home’s value.
Since there are many different metrics that can predict a home’s value, you may see some differences. Homeowners pay property taxes based on their home’s assessed value. But this number is not always accurate compared to the market value. Market values fluctuate more than assessed values. When you are getting ready to buy or sell a house, pay attention to the market value. You will only need to worry about the assessed value when calculating how much you will pay in property taxes.
Absolutely! There is usually a difference between a home’s list price (how much it is on the market for) and the sale price (how much it sells for.) In a seller’s market, buyers who want to negotiate should be careful. High demands leave little wiggle room for negotiation. If you want to negotiate, talk to your real estate agent about what you should offer.
Selling a home comes with a handful of costs. Expect to give up at least 10% of your home’s sale price. These costs include:
