The basics of selling a home

The process of selling your home can differ from state to state. Before putting your house on the market, there are some important steps you must take to get the most from your investment and to protect your interests.

• Get pre-qualified for a new mortgage before you sign an agreement to sell your current home. • Engage your lender to determine your new mortgage payoff. • Have your house appraised to approximate its fair market value, and ask your realtor to estimate any additional costs associated with closing.


Dress your house for success

There are some basic things you can do to insure your home holds up under the scrutiny of prospective buyers. First, make all necessary household repairs. The last thing a new home owner wants to do is spend time and money fixing problems that should have already been addressed by the previous owner. New carpet, fresh paint and a manicured lawn can breathe new life into an older home.

Sufficient lighting, a pleasant aroma and comfortable temperature will make your house more appealing. Make sure your house is clean and orderly prior to showing. Pay special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms. These rooms get dirty more easily than other areas of the house, and they are often the rooms perspective buyers examine most closely. It’s also a good idea to make sure any pets are secured in a fenced yard or pen. Generally speaking, perspective buyers will be more comfortable inspecting your house if you aren’t there. Trust your agent’s professional skill in showing your home.

  • Have copies made of utility bills from the past 12 months.
  • Maintain fire and extended coverage insurance on the property through the date of closing date or date of possession, whichever is specified in the contract.
  • Have existing loan information and payment book available.
  • Provide a copy of the most recent tax statement.
  • Furnish information regarding home owner’s association covenants and restrictions if applicable.
  • Reach out to your agent to insure you haven’t overlooked anything.
