Want to maximize your profits when you sell your Shalimar house?
One of the best things you can do for yourself to boost your bottom line is making a conscious effort to save on your expenses throughout the selling process.
Since Uber Realty is all about helping you get the most bang for your buck, this installment of the Uber Realty Blog features the top 10 ways for you to save money when you sell your Shalimar property.
#10 - Get Your Property Inspected
You may remember when you purchased your Shalimar home that you had a home inspector come out to make sure that everything was in tip-top shape. One super simple way to win buyers over and attract higher offers is to have the property inspected again. This updated inspection report will give buyers peace of mind that there won’t be any major surprises down the road.
#9 - Have Your HVAC Serviced
Another fast and easy way to bump up the value of your Shalimar property before listing it for sale is to have your HVAC system serviced. Not only will it increase buyers’ confidence in the quality of the home, but it will save you from having to do it when you’re busy trying to get ready for your move.
#8 - Get Your Paperwork In Order
Whether you are buying or selling a house, one thing you can be sure of is that there is a lot of paperwork involved. Hopefully, you were diligent about keeping the paperwork you were given when you purchased the property in order because it could save you money. For example, if you still have the survey and haven’t made any changes to the property, you should be able to use it and save yourself a few hundred dollars.
#7 - Ask For A Discount On Title
When you hire an experienced Shalimar Realtor to sell your house, you should ask them if they have any connections that you can leverage to your advantage. In some cases, this may mean your Realtor asking the title company that they bring frequent business to offer you a discount on the closing.
#6 - Get A Reissue Of Your Title
If you haven’t owned the property for very long, it may be possible for you to get a simple reissue of the title. This will save everyone a lot of time, money, and work.
#5 - Get A Listing Home Warranty
Remember how when you bought your Shalimar property you were asked if you also wanted to purchase a home warranty? Well, you have the chance to purchase one again. This time, the warranty will protect you if you suspect there will be a lot of repairs needed. The warranty will cover the bulk of the costs, just leaving you responsible for the deductible.
#4 - Ask The Lender To Pitch In
This is another case of leaning on your trusty Shalimar Realtor to help you out. If money is really tight and you won’t be able to swing the closing costs, see if you and your Realtor can work out a deal with the lender to help cover some of the closing costs. They will be motivated to get the deal done too so use that to your advantage.
#3 - Get A Pest Inspection
One of the nastiest surprises to both buyers and sellers that can turn a deal upside down is bad news on the pest inspection report. Be proactive and show the Shalimar buyers market how motivated you are by getting a pest inspection prior to listing the house for sale.
#2 - Price It Right
One of the fastest ways to sabotage your efforts as a seller is to price your property too high or too low. Price it too high, and you destroy your chances of attracting buyers. Price it too low and you could end up leaving a lot of money on the table. The best thing you can do for yourself is to trust the advice of your Shalimar Realtor on the most strategic price point.
#1 - Hire The Right Realtor
If you really want to save money, sell your Shalimar property for top dollar, and do it all quickly, you need to hire the right Realtor. You need someone that is completely committed to you, knows where it makes sense to spend, and how to save. Most of all, you want a Shalimar Realtor that can deliver the Goldie Locks of commission rates; not too high, not too low, but just right.
