Preparing to Sell

 

Selling a home can be an emotional and stressful decision.  You as the seller are selling your home and a buyer is looking to buy a house which someday will become their home.  Often there are issues that arise after the contract is signed that results in delays.  

We can help you avoid these situations and try to resolve many of the common issues that cause unnecessary delay when selling your home.

  • Title issues
    • Fence and driveway boundary line issues.
    • Ancient mortgages that have not been discharged properly.

 

  • Inspection Issues
    • Obtain an inspection on your own to provide to sellers.
    • Most inspectors are willing to:
    1. Inspect your home and help you determine defects that will concern a buyer.
    2. Provide you with a clean report to provide to buyers once you have made identified repairs. This can often reduce days of negotiations and weeks of delays while waiting for a buyer to obtain an inspection and estimates of repairs.
    3. Know realistic timelines from the date the contract is signed until the date the closing will take place.
