How to Get Top Dollar for Your Home

You already know you should clean like there’s no tomorrow and remove all family photos and other personal items, but if you’re looking to come away from your home sale with wads of cash, there are a few other things you need to consider. 1. Decide whether you really want top dollar That may sound strange. Of course you do! But consider whether the work, expense, and stress are really worth it. If your home needs a lot of work or if you have children or pets, you may be better off settling for a more modest price that will leave you with your sanity intact. Homes that sell for top prices are usually those referred to by Realtors as “cream puffs.” These homes tend to be immaculately clean and orderly, are blessed with updated neutral décor, and boast upgraded materials and fixtures. If your home is less than 10 years old and was built with topnotch materials or is a completely renovated historical treasure, you may already have a cream puff. If not, you may find that creating and maintaining one is more stress and expense than it’s worth. 2. Just because it isn’t a cream puff doesn’t mean […]

Buying Your First Home: What to Look For

Buying your first home is truly one of the most exciting times of your life. It will happen just once so make it count. You’ve saved and managed your finances well and the rewards will be great. However, avoid becoming overwhelmed as you begin the process of looking for your own place. Ponder these points to maximize the chances you’ll make the best decision: 1. Explore different communities on your own before contacting a realtor. Listen to what your friends have to say about where they live. If you see an interesting subdivision on your way home from work, drive through it to see what it offers. 2. Think first about your commute to work. Would it bother you to drive an hour to and from work? If so, that will help you rule out some neighborhoods right off the bat. Maybe you’d like to limit your work travel to twenty minutes each way. Since your work is how you bring in your dollars, work is likely the first thing to consider when you’re getting ready to shop for a home. 3. Make a list of people, places, and things you wish to live close to. Listing family, friends, activities, […]
