Prepare Your Home For Sale

No matter how great your home looks at first glance, any buyer will point to various parts and pop the question: How old?

How long items last depends on a lot of factors such as the model and how well it's been maintained, but you can get a general idea of average life span from the National Association of Home Builders.

Walk Through Your Home/ Repair or Replace?

Consider looking at the following items that may need some repairng or replacement:

•Wood rot around outside door frames, window ledges, and garage doors. Condensation and rain can cause these areas to weaken and rot. 

•Water stains on the ceiling or near doors and windows. This can indicate a leaky roof or rain seeping in from outside. •Leaks under sinks or around toilets. 

•Loose carpet or discoloration on hardwood floors, which can indicate flooding problems or an uneven foundation.

The real estate term “under contract” means that a binding agreement exists between a buyer and a seller involving property. The buyer and the seller are in agreement with the terms in the contract. When a property is under contract, the seller may not enter into contract with any other buyer. This is because the buyer is under obligation to purchase to property from the seller. The process is as follows:

  2. Provide sellers disclosures
  3. Waiting through buyers due diligence period to acquire financing options, inspections, appraisal and association approvals if needed.
  4. Final Walk-through (day before closing)
