Selling Your Home
Inspections & Appraisal
The buyer has the right to have a wide variety of property inspections to determine the property's condition and the cost of any impending repairs or upgrades. Inspections may include roof, termite/pest, chimney/fireplace, property boundary survey, well, septic, pool/spa, arborist or mold. You are entitled to a copy of any of their inspection reports.
Appraisal and Loan Approval:
We recommend accepting offers from buyers who have a lender's pre-approval letter, which is stronger than a pre-qualification letter. Later, the lender will send an appraiser out to the property, to ensure the property is worth the sales price.
Time to Start Packing:
We can recommend when it is time for you to start packing and maybe start with renting storage for a month or two. When your ready to begin showing your home to prospective buyers, wouldn't it be nice to be "uncluttered". Fewer pieces of furniture well positioned in a house will leave the buyer with the concept of your home being large, easy to keep clean and tidy. Remove all the extra books from the shelf and leave one picture frame in it's place, a tidy office, two deck chairs instead of four. You get the idea.
