Common Questions And Answers About Selling Your Home As Is

Aug 17, 2007
Correct price for the home

It is very important to price your home correctly since the market conditions keep fluctuating. These fluctuations have a direct bearing on property values. So it would be best to take the services of a realtor. They are qualified and knowledgeable about the various aspects of real estate dealings and in a position to offer a realistic price tag on the property. Many realtors offer a free market analysis, expecting brokerage business in return. They consider the age, location, style and condition of the home. They access a variety of information resources and assess the market-offers for similar properties and suggest a price accordingly.

Margin for negotiation

The price should be fixed in such a manner that your home does not appear over- priced. It is generally observed that homes that have been priced realistically get sold at prices very close to the listed price.

Time Period

This depends on many factors, such as the price, the location, the condition of your home and the prevailing demand and supply position for the property in your neighborhood, town or city. Usually, it takes from one to six months.

Selling on your own Vs hiring a realtor

Statistics gained through survey show that only eleven percent of sellers are able to sell their property themselves. You can try to sell your home yourself. This will save you from paying commission to the realtor. It is essential to remember that properties are not sold like commodities. You dont simply place a sign outside your home saying for sale and someone turns up to pay you the full market- price. The property would require maximum exposure to fetch the best price advertised. Real estate professionals would place ads in magazines, the inter-net and use other means to advertise the sale. There are many legal implications related to the sale as well as documentation and other formalities to be completed. An omission with respect to any of these may result in legal issues, which may cost a lot of money. If you are sure and willing to handle all this, it pays well. Otherwise a real estate agent would be the best choice, to take care of all this for a small commission. Such people also have access to different buyers through their business network.

Considering FHA or VA buyers

You can, but you must keep in mind that the qualification guidelines for most government loans are quite stringent. The inspection would be strict and there may arise the need to indulge in costly repairs. This would depend on the structure of the home and the required inspection. You must also consider that by excluding FHA, Federal Housing Administration and VA, Veterans Administration, you would be reducing the number of buyers by about thirty percent.

When you decide to sell your home as is on your own, you have a gain a much better idea of what interests buyers in general, their likes and dislikes and what their timeframes are. This direct feedback is of great help and you can adapt accordingly. You need not stop to wonder how things are progressing or if your quotes are realistic or not. In short, there is less uncertainty.
