Taking the "scary" out of real estate.

Taking the "scary" out of real estate. 


Even homeowners who have moved a few times can be intimidated by the real estate market in general, and the buying and selling process in particular.


First of all, making a decision to sell your home can be difficult. There are so many questions, such as:


• Is "now" a good time to list?


• How much can you expect to get for your property?


• How long will it take to sell – and what if it doesn't?


Then there's the buying and selling process:

 


• How do you prepare your home for sale?


• How do you find homes that meet your criteria and are within your price range?
• How do you prepare your home for viewings?


Yes, there's a lot to think about. That's why finding a good REALTOR® who is an expert on the local market is so important.


A good REALTOR® will help you understand the market, the current market value of your home, and what you can expect should you decide to list.


A good REALTOR® will also walk you step-by-step through the home selling and buying process, and work hard to make sure everything goes smoothly.


So if you're considering buying or selling a home, take the time to find a good REALTOR®. It makes all the difference.

How a Home Inspection Helps You
Whether you're considering buying a particular home, selling your current
property – or both – a home inspection can help.
A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a
close look at every aspect of a home – structure, wiring, plumbing, and
more – and identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.
For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be
replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to
be fixed.
You'll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a
particular property. That's why most offers to purchase a home are
conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to
buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)
You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you
list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your
home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.
Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry
association.
