Dos and Donts for Selling Your Home Fast In Orlando

Feb 27, 2008
Orlando is a busy city known for its tourist attractions such as Sea World, the Universal Orlando Resort and, of course Disney World. It has a humid and subtropical climate. So, appropriate care should be taken, if you are planning to sell your home. Here are some helpful dos and dont's to ensure that your home gets sold in a jiffy.

Dos

The first and foremost thing to do is to make your home presentable to the buyer. Repair all leaking taps and faucets. Repair that roof, if it is leaking. Replace missing or damaged shingles. Give a fresh coat of paint to any room or exterior wall, which shows stains from previous leakage or is showing signs of fungus. Vacuum and dust your entire home, including your garage. Since Orlando has a humid climate, ensure that all metal fittings are free of rust and that wood is not puffed up due to any moisture. Repair or replace rusted metal pipes. Scrape and paint your child's metal slide or any other exterior metal playthings. Once your home resembles a newly wed bride, then its time to let the world know, of what a great deal, they can get by buying your house.

You can contact a reputed broker or you can advertise in the property section of your newspaper. You can always sell your house to an agent without repairing it, but you will receive less than what you will ask for. Doing up a home before selling it, indicates to agents and actual buyers that you love your home and have taken good care of it. That emotional factor can get you an amount closer to your heart's desire. Do keep an open mind, while talking to buyers or agents. Try to understand their point of view. Do not be rigid or rude, while talking to them. Be flexible and courteous. Keep your initial price slightly higher than your expectations, so that you can afford to reduce it a little. Be honest in your dealings and also indicate to your broker or agent that you want a professional and painless deal.

Dont's

Do not show your home to prospective buyers, before you have completed your renovation. If your house is seen in the 'before' condition, then news travels fast and then no amount of renovation will fetch you the desired price. Do not ask for a ridiculous price for your home, but instead do some research and check out the property rates in your neighborhood of Orlando first. If the price quoted is realistic, then buyers will perceive you as a sensible person worth dealing with. Do not try to pit one buyer against another, in a bid to jack up the price of your home. It usually backfires.

Do not try to lie about the house, especially to your agent or broker. They have been in this business far too long and normally know everything about the house, just by looking at it once. If you have appointed a broker, then do not quote a different rate than what has been discussed by you. It could put your intentions to doubt by buyers and the broker too.

So, follow the above dos and dont's and you could end up selling your house 'el pronto'.
