Ever wondered why some houses seem to be the centers of attraction within a short time of being on the market and why some garner no interest at all? So how come some homes get sold quickly and some take a lot of time.
Basically it all depends on how ready your home is to accept new owners. You need to prepare the house for changing hands. No doubt that the location and price are the major factors but sometimes there may be more to a house than it meets the eye.
Here are a few tips to help you:
* Get the best agent you can afford. A good agent can help you sell your home faster.
* Look at your house with the eyes of a potential buyer. What aspects do you like and what you do not.
* Use the heavy artillery as far as advertising your home is concerned. With so many homes for sale this is the only way to attract attention.
* You could offer extra perks, like closing-cost help, to your buyers.
* If you are in a really desperate condition, you may want to rent out your home. Let the renters know that you want to sell the house and that they will have to accommodate house shows.
Prepare, prepare and prepare some more. This is the basic requirement for selling a house fast.
Home Selling Contract
Drawing of the contract is the final aspect of selling a home. Since this will seal the deal, you need to learn about it a little. Prior knowledge about contracts will give you a better stand for discussions and further negotiations. It will also protect you against possible scam. A house selling contract might differ from place to place but the basics remain the same. A contract should satisfy the following needs:
* Description of the house being sold.
* The value
* The mortgage contingency
* Where and when will it be closed
* The amount of deposit and to what
* Exact scope of the sale
* Further inspections by seller if any
* Kind of inspections
* House has insurance coverage or not
If you have made yourself familiar with a house selling contract, you will be able to tackle sticky clauses. Be careful around the contingency clause. The house buyers would like to safe guard their interests if something were to happen before the closing, at the same time you should also safeguard your interests in case they back out.
It is always better to let a professional agent handle the legal contracts. In case you are selling your home yourself, you can refer to some websites which will give you contract formats to work with. When on your own it is a better option to hire a lawyer who can take care of the contract clauses. You would not like it if the other party were to slip in a clause that would be detrimental to your cause.
