It’s no secret that COVID has changed a lot of things about the world we live in. One thing that has seen a huge change is the real estate market. Homes are selling as soon as they go on the market, and there seems to be a housing shortage. This creates a seller’s market for homeowners dreaming of living in a different house and selling their current place. There are some things you need to do when you are selling your home in an accelerated market like this. JMark Inspections is here to share some tips to help you prepare to sell your home in a market like we are experiencing.
Should you Get a Pre-Listing Home Inspection Before You Sell Your House?
Many sellers don’t realize how much a pre-listing inspection can benefit the sale of their home. When you choose to have an inspection before putting your home on the market, you can avoid headaches down the road. Here are some of the benefits sellers see when they get a pre-listing inspection.
– You get a good understanding of the inner workings of your home. All of the major system in your home will be thoroughly inspected. This includes your electrical system, HVAC system, plumbing system and more. This can give you and your realtor a leg up as you are trying to appropriately price and sell your home.
– When you get a pre-listing inspection, you are able to make any minor improvements or repairs to your home that will likely end up getting negotiated into the sale of your home anyway. Getting them taken care of early can speed up the selling process.
– You can gain favor with potential buyers when you are forthcoming with them. A home inspection is going to uncover any issues in your home anyway, so when you let them know of issues that you are aware up upfront, it can help the buyers feel more confident in moving forward and working with you.
Is it Worth Staging a House for Sale?
Whether you are still living in the home or not, when you stage the house, it will be more appealing to buyers. Consider hiring a professional stager to make your home look as appealing as possible to buyers. They know how to set up a room so that it makes your home look as appealing as possible. Sometimes, you will have to rent some furniture to get the results you are after. A professional stager knows the market and knows the buyers in the market. They can be extremely helpful when you are looking to sell your home quickly.
