You should list your home for more than you expect to get
Pricing your home is key to selling your home! Buyers will not look at homes out of their budget and homes that sit on the market for too long raise red flags for buyers. It is so important to talk with a real estate agent to ensure you are listing your home at the RIGHT price.
You save money by not using a real estate agent
Without a REALTOR, sellers do not have the tools needed to sell their home efficiently. Do not get us wrong, some people are able to successful sell their home without a REALTOR, but usually, homes sold without a REALTOR tend to have a lower sales price. You may sell your home without paying an agent’s commission, but you tend to lose money in the overall sales price of the home.
You recoup everything what you put into your home renovations
Basic home enhancements and repairs will not always increase your home’s value. The biggest renovation to net as much as you spend is a new front door. Complete renovations for your own pleasure not to increase your home’s value.
The first step of buying a home is finding the perfect home
Finding the perfect home may be the most fun part of buying a house, but it is not the first step. The first step is getting pre-approved for a home. The housing market, especially here in Eastern North Carolina, is extremely competitive. You do not want to miss out on the home of your dreams because you have not been pre-qualified for the home. Always get pre-approval FIRST!!
You must sell your current home to purchase a new home
Most people think to purchase a new home you must sell your current home first. People often forget they have the option to keep their current home as an investment. Turning your current home into a rental property is a great way to increase your income and build equity. If you qualify, turning your current home into a rental property is a great way to get yourself into a new home.
