Lots of homeowners begin to feel overwhelmed by all of the intricacies of selling their houses and often don’t know where to start. Almost always, the best way to start is by making a list of the questions you want to ask. The right questions can help you feel more comfortable with the overall process. In addition to this, the answers to a lot of these questions will help you earn the most possible money for your home, all beginning with deciding how to sell.
Anything involving property is never ‘one size fits all,’ the method you use to sell your home should be tailored to your particular property as well as extenuating personal circumstances. Understanding clearly what results to expect from each of your options, allows you to make an educated decision. Estate agents and professional investors have combined their expertise to make the process easy, with the ability to help you out no matter what your situation is.
Know you aren’t alone; we’ve gathered the top five questions we receive about selling a house in North East asked over the years by our satisfied sellers to help put your mind at ease.
What Must I Disclose?
Another question about selling a house in North East is about the disclosure. You must legally disclose any known defect or work completed without permission and anything else which would prevent new owners from the full enjoyment of the property. Suppose you’re afraid you should hide something from buyers. Selling directly to a hybrid agent-investor like those at North East House Buyers, acting as a professional investor means you can sleep well, free of the burden. You no longer have to worry because concerns about any future legal responsibility for disclosures will fall onto our shoulders and off of yours.
Do I Need An Inspection?
An additional question about selling a house in North East is if home sellers need an inspection. Acting as an agent, a hybrid agent investor will likely recommend a pre-inspection to identify any issues identified and rectified. Your agent could use minor repairs as negotiating tools with buyers. However, suppose your property is older, or you’re aware of significant problems, such as the roof or foundation, working as a professional investor, like those at North East House Buyers will purchase the property directly as-is. You can simply leave all of your concerns and repair bills behind as you move on with your new life.
Does Staging Matter?
Another concerning issue about selling a house in the North East is whether it’s worth it to spend the extra money on staging your home. Staging has a strong influence on buyers and we would always recommend putting the effort in as it can have a huge impact on the final sale price for your home. When highly personal items are left on show, such as family photos, it stops prospective buyers from envisioning their life in your home. If the thought of strangers walking through your home for potentially months’ worth of viewings keeps you from selling, working with us as a direct home buyer may be the solution you’re looking for.
There is also the question of what must be left behind when selling a house in North East. Permanent attachments such as built-in cabinets or other items attached to walls or floors by which damage would result from removal, such as television mounts, should remain. Naturally, you’ll remove all personal property after the sale. In many cases, you may also take all or most of the appliances with you as well. Acting as an agent, an expert hybrid agent investor like those at North East House Buyers can help you create a list, including what possessions you may be willing to offer as an incentive to sweeten a deal with a prospective buyer. On the other hand, when working with your agent as a professional investor, you have the freedom to leave anything behind that you don’t want. Simply move into your new home, leave the clean-up behind.
How Much Will Selling Cost?
Many homeowners are concerned about the out-of-pocket expenses of selling a house in North East. Last but not least, another question they ask is the cost to list the home on the open market. One of the unique benefits is that each sales method will be detailed by the numbers, allowing you to estimate the costs to hold onto the property, market, and pay commissions compared to selling directly. If a direct sale is the better option for your case, then working with your hybrid agent investor like those at North East House Buyers as a professional investor eliminates them all, and because closing is fast, holding costs aren’t a concern.
