This weeks tip: Hire a Home Inspector
If you are thinking that you might sell your home in the next year, consider this, most buyers will hire a home inspector that will inspect your home for any and all issues. Wiring, foundation, installation, etc. In the case of a Home Inspection, you do not want to be surprised! When you accept an offer on your home, you want to close the deal with as little hassle as possible. More and more home owners will hire a home inspector and provide a home inspection report to buyers as this can make buyers more ready to make an offer on your home, especially if they are considering other homes that do not have a home inspection. The other benefit for you though is that you can use the home inspection as a ‘What do I need to do‘ guide if you find something major. Please keep in mind that home inspection reports will be detailed and may startle you initially, similar to reviewing your results from a physical if the doctor is not present! If you make the wise investment for a home inspection, have us come over after you get it to review it with you and we can give you advice on what is common in our market and what is not. Every market is different, so just because you see something that looks scary on the inspection report, does not necessarily mean you need to fix it. But either way, you can be assured that buyers will get an inspection done and you do not want to be surprised by this when you are trying to get the home sold.
This is just one of a number of tips that home owners can do to really maximize the value of their home to potential buyers and make the selling process a lot easier.
