Tips for Home Buyers

Here are some tips to get you informed and confident as you consider buying a home or property.

Eight Practical Tips for Buyers
  1. Decide on a price range & use a mortgage broker to find out what amount you qualify for.  
  2. Decide what kind of home fits your particular lifestyle and budget & weigh the pros and cons of each of your options.
  3. Begin a working relationship with a Realtor that has experience & can offer you professional advice. Working with a realtor can lessen the anxiety you might feel because knowledgeabel realtors bring a wealth of helpful advice to your purchasing decision. 
  4. Look on the MLS at what is for sale in your price range and visit a number of homes with your realtor to get a feel for the homes and areas where you would like to live.
  5. Once you have decided on a good home investment, work with your realtor to write an offer.  A good realtor will draw up a contract that protects you and allows you to fully research your property before buying.
  6. Do a home inspection with a qualified home inspector. The home inspection protects familiarizes you with all the features of your new home, informs you of repairs, and protects you against unpleasant surprises.
  7. Remove subjects once you are confident that the home is a good value and once you are satisfied with your purchase.  
  8. Work with your realtor to finalize all the details related to your purchase and prepare to enjoy your new home.  

Tips for Sellers

Use these eight practical tips to help you prepare your home and property for sale. These tips will help you achieve maximum curb-appeal!

Eight Practical Tips for Sellers
  1. Carefully consider your house’s curb-appeal remembering that many buyers make an emotional attachment before stepping inside.
  2. Make sure that all inside and outside work is finished.  It is really important to finish all the little details and repairs so that your property is appealing.
  3. Stage your property.  Staging professionals can be a great asset but you can tackle the job yourself.  Just  make sure everything is clean and tidy and you show off the space.  Some yummy baking before a showing can really engage the senses as well.  The main thing here is to make sure the space inside your home looks uncluttered and organized. 
  4. Lighting. Make sure that your home is adequately lit so that buyers can see all the hard work you’ve done!
  5. Organize storage areas. Storage areas are often where put things we don’t want to deal with.  Remember organizing your storage is preparing you to move and sell which is a win win.
  6. Take stuff you don’t want or need to the thrift store.  This will help declutter your space and free your mind from things that need moving in the future.
  7. Landscaping. Often what homes need is a good raking and some weeding so that it looks well tended. Remember that future owners want to move into a home that is well maintained from the start.
  8. Stay positive. However long it takes to sell your home don’t lose sight of your objective which is to present your property in the best light. It may be the time you need to tackle small jobs and further increase the value of your home.
