4 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’จโœจ๐Ÿ’ฐ

Since June of last year, we have seen an increase in the inventory of homes for sale month per month. Every spring and summer, the inventory increases because people want to sell their home. For those with children, they may want to be in their new home for the beginning of the school year.

If you are one of those sellers, you may find these 4 tips helpful in getting your home sold more quickly.

1. Make buyers feel at home

Declutter your home! Pack away all personal items like pictures, awards, and sentimental belongings. Make them feel like they belong in this house! According to the Profile of Home Staging by the National Association of Realtors,

โ€œ83% of buyersโ€™ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.โ€

Not only will your house spend less time on the market, but the same report mentioned that,

โ€œOne-quarter of buyersโ€™ agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered between 1 โ€“ 5%, compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged.โ€

2. Keep it organized

Since you took the time to declutter, keep it organized! Before the buyers show up, pick up toys, make the bed, and put away clean dishes. It is also a good idea to put out some cookies fresh from the oven or a scented candle. Buyers will remember the smell of your home! According to the same report, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms to stage in order to attract more buyers.

3. Give buyers full access

One of the top four elements when selling your home is access! If your home is available anytime, that opens up more opportunity to find a buyer right away. Some buyers, especially those relocating, donโ€™t have much time available. If they cannot get into the house, they will move on to the next one.

4. Price it right

As we mentioned at the beginning, more inventory coming into the market guarantees there will be some competition. You want to make sure your home is noticed. The key to selling your house in 2019 is ensuring it is Priced to Sell Immediately (PTSI). That way, your home will be seen by the greatest amount of buyers and will sell at a great price before more competition comes to market!

Bottom Line
If you want to sell your house in the least amount of time at the best price with as little hassle as possible, contact me today. I can help you to find out what you need to do to sell your home more quickly.

Is Mortgage Debt out of Control? ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ฒ

The housing crisis of the last decade was partially caused by unhealthy levels of mortgage debt. Homeowners were using their homes as ATMs by refinancing and swapping their equity for cash.

When prices started to fall, many homeowners found themselves in a negative equity situation (where their mortgage was higher than the value of their home). As a result, they walked away. This caused prices to fall even further.

Headlines are again talking about record levels of mortgage debt, making the comparison to the challenges that preceded the housing crash. However, cumulative debt is not an important data point. If we look at the debt as a percentage of disposable personal income, we are at an all-time low.

Hereโ€™s a visual representation of mortgage debt as a percent of income:

Furthermore, according to a new report from ATTOM Data Solutions, more than 1-in-4 homes with a mortgage have at least 50% equity. The report explains:

โ€œ[O]ver 14.5 million U.S. properties were equity rich โ€” where the combined estimated amount of loans secured by the property was 50 percent or less of the propertyโ€™s estimated market value โ€” up by more than 834,000 from a year ago to a new high as far back as data is available, Q4 2013.โ€

Bottom Line

Unlike 2008, homeowners have a comfortable level of mortgage debt and are sitting on massive amounts of home equity. They will not be walking away from their homes if the housing market begins to soften. Do you have more questions about this contact me.ย

Know What to Expect at Your Home Inspection ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ”Ž๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘

So you made anย offer and it was accepted. Now, your next task is to have the home inspected prior to closing. Agents oftentimes make your offer contingent on a clean home inspection.

This contingency allows you to renegotiate the price you paid for the home, ask the sellers to cover repairs, or in some cases, to walk away. Your agent can advise you on the best course of action once the report is filed.

How to Choose an Inspector

Your agent will most likely have a short list of inspectors that they have worked with in the past that they can recommend to you.ย HGTVย recommends that you consider the following five areas when choosing the right home inspector for you:

1. Qualificationsย โ€“ find out whatโ€™s included in your inspection and if the age or location of your home may warrant specific certifications or specialties.

2. Sample Reportsย โ€“ ask for a sample inspection report so you can review how thoroughly they will be inspecting your dream home. In most cases, the more detailed the report, the better.

3. Referencesย โ€“ do your homework โ€“ ask for phone numbers and names of past clients who you can call to ask about their experiences.

4. Membershipsย โ€“ Not all inspectors belong to a national or state association of home inspectors, and membership in one of these groups should not be the only way to evaluate your choice. Membership in one of these organizations often means that continued training and education are provided.

5. Errors & Omission Insuranceย โ€“ Find out what the liability of the inspector or inspection company is once the inspection is over. The inspector is only human, after all, and it is possible that they might have missed something they should have seen.

Ask your inspector if itโ€™s okay for you to tag along during the inspection. That way they can point out anything that should be addressed or fixed.

Donโ€™t be surprised to see your inspector climbing on the roof or crawling around in the attic and on the floors. The job of the inspector is to protect your investment and find any issues with the home,ย includingย but not limited to: the roof, plumbing, electrical components, appliances, heating & air conditioning systems, ventilation, windows, the fireplace and chimney, the foundation, and so much more!

Bottom Line

They say, โ€˜ignorance is bliss,โ€™ but not when investing your hard-earned money into a home of your own. Contact me if you need help finding a professional who you can trust to give you the most information possible about your new home so that you can make the most educated decision about your purchase.ย
