Sellers Guide

 

Everyone sells a home at certain times in their lives.  Lots of questions. The wRight Property Realtors can  help you through them.

 

When it comes to selling the wRight Property will guide you through to listing  your  home for  the best value in today’s market and at every stage we’ll be there to answer your question.

 

First is Preparation:

When getting ready to sell , ask yourself-

  • Why do I want sell this “home” I’ve created for myself over the years?
  • Do I need more space, or do I need to downsize?
  • Am I transferring jobs to a new city or state?
  • Am I moving to a new town?

Clean up your home and keep it up throughout the process.  Do a complete walkthrough before placing your home on the market.

Remember to fix anything that needs attention before you place your home on the market.

De-Clutter your home. Pack up items and box away.  Live with just the essentials.

 

Property Value:

You must price your home accordingly. Try and keep it just right in pricing, meaning the price isn't too high, or too low.  In either case you must keep your home from overpricing and scaring away potential buyers.  Don't drop the price too far too fast and sell for too little.  A Realtor is the best source for guiding you to the right price.

 

Evaluate your Own Situation:

  • Do you need to sell fast?

  • Are you willing to sit on your home if it doesn't sell fast?

  • Can you negotiate a little on the price of your home?

  • Is the price the bottom line and that is it?

 Prepare for Homeownership

  • Decide how much home you can afford.

  • Develop a wish list of what you’d like your home to have.

  • Select three or four neighborhoods you’d like to live in. Consider items such as schools, recreational facilities, area expansion plans, and safety.

  • Determine if you have enough saved to cover your down payment and closing costs. Closing costs, including taxes, attorney’s fee, and transfer fees average between 2 percent and 7 percent of the home price

  • Get your credit in order. Obtain a copy of your credit report.

  • Determine how large a mortgage you can qualify for. A lender can help you with this usually no charge except credit report fee.

  • Organize all the documentation a lender will need to preapprove you for a loan.

  • Do research to determine if you qualify for any special mortgage or down payment-assistance programs.

  • Calculate the costs of homeownership, including property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and association fees, if applicable.

 Find a REALTORÒ who can help you through the process.

 

Tips for First-Time Homebuyers

  • Be picky, but don’t be unrealistic. There is no perfect home.

  • Do your homework before you start looking. Decide specifically what features you want in a home and which are most important to you.

  • Get your finances in order. Review your credit report and be sure you have enough money to cover your down payment and your closing costs.

  • Don’t wait to get a loan. Talk to a lender and get prequalified for a mortgage before you start looking.

  • Don’t ask too many people for opinions. It will drive you crazy. Select one or two people to turn to if you feel you need a second opinion.

  • Decide when you could move. When is your lease up? Are you allowed to sublet? How tight is the rental market in your area?

  • Think long-term. Are you looking for a starter house with the idea of moving up in a few years or do you hope to stay in this home longer? This decision may dictate what type of home you’ll buy as well as the type of mortgage terms that suit you best.

  • Don’t let yourself be “house poor”. If you max yourself out to buy the biggest home you can afford, you’ll have no money left for maintenance or decoration or to save money for other financial goals.

  • Don’t be naïve. Insist on a home inspection

  • Get help. Consider hiring a REALTORÒ as a buyer’s representative. Unlike a listing agent, whose first duty is to the seller, a buyer’s representative is working only for you.

 

 

Moving Tips

  • Give your forwarding address to the post office, usually two to four weeks ahead of the move.

  • Notify your credit card companies, magazine subscriptions, and bank of the change of address.

  • Develop a list of friends, relatives, and business colleagues who need to be notified of the move.

  • Arrange to have utilities disconnected at your old home and connected at your new one.

  • Cancel the newspaper.

  • Check insurance coverage for moved items. Usually movers only cover what they pack.

  • Clean out appliances and prepare them for moving, if applicable.

  • Note the weight of the goods you’ll have moved, since long-distance moves are usually billed according to weight. Watch for movers that use excessive padding to add weight.

  • Check with your condo or co-op about restrictions on using the elevator or particular exits.

  • Have a “first open” box with the things you’ll need most—toilet paper, soap, trash bags, scissors, hammer, screwdriver, pencils and paper, cups and plates, water, snacks, and toothpaste.

 

Plus, if you’re moving out of town:

  • Get copies of medical and dental records and prescriptions for your family and your pets.

  • Get copies of children’s school records for transfer.

  • Ask friends for introductions to anyone they know in your new neighborhood.

  • Consider special car needs for pets when traveling.

  • Let a friend or relative know your route.

  • Carry traveler’s checks or an ATM card for ready cash until you can open a bank account.

  • Empty your safety deposit box.

  • Put plants in boxes with holes for air circulation if you’re moving in cold weather.
