They had doubters. They had family and friends look on the popular z,t,r and tell them you’re crazy “this site” says you will only get 200,00 (ish). Well guess what! They were wrong! The sites are not accurate, they are estimates and they are not accurate estimates. If my sellers would have believed the value they were told their home was worth on the popular websites, instead of me, they would have lost over 70,000 dollars! So many people believe what the sites say, the believe what they tell them their home is worth, they believe what they say is for sale, they believe it all. One important item they fail to realize is that it is a website and that’s it. They (the website) have no fiduciary duty to you the consumer. They are not required to uphold a code of ethics, they are not licensed and have not attended all the training or have any responsibility for what their site says or doesn’t say in regards to what your estimated home value is worth or what is actually for sale . You should ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS work with a REALTOR. Never say you can’t afford it. If my sellers would have said that they would have lost a lot of money!

Beware of "estimates of value" from websites.  Call a REALTOR always !  801-580-5624

Beware of “estimates of value” from websites. Call a REALTOR always ! 801-580-5624

What do I need to do to sell my house? Tips for the inside

What do I need to do to sell my house? Tips for the inside of the house.  My first and the easiest suggestion is to start by taking pictures.  This will allow you to see your home from a different view.  Snap pictures of your closets, pantry, the bedrooms, bathrooms and all rooms of the house.  Try it, you will be surprised at what you see.

Remove all the clutter from counters, cupboards and cabinets.  If a buyer walks in and sees the counters covered they will think you are short on storage. The same goes for cluttered cabinets, cupboards and closets.  Also, don’t forget under the bed.  They will notice if your “stuff” is what appears to be holding the bed up.  Enlarge the pictures you have taken you will see a lot of stuff.

Clean: Spend time deep cleaning your home.  Wipe down the baseboards, the shutters, the vents and light switches.  Clean your appliances. Wash the rugs, carpets and drapes. Polish your floors. Patch up any holes in the wall including nail holes.  A fresh coat of paint can do wonders.

Make sure all your light bulbs are working.  A burnt out light fixture to a buyer means something is wrong with the electrical.  To a seller it means I need to change the bulb.

Brighten your rooms.  If you have dark rooms, lighten them up with a different paint color, brighter bulbs or more light fixtures.

Put some color in your house.  Flowers or fruit as center pieces look fantastic.

Bathrooms and kitchens:  Make sure you take extra time to deep clean these areas.  Fresh towels make a great first impression.  Also, please remember to put away all personal items.  The buyers will spend a lot of time looking at these rooms and deciding if they think the areas will work for them or not.  *they do not want to see dirty laundry or your beauty products*

Lock up all your prescriptions and valuables.  Buyers will be looking around and they should see your home not remember your valuables.  Its impossible for a buyers agent to watch everything all the time.  Keep everything locked up to help prevent the possibility of something missing down the road.

When its time to show your home, grab your pets and kids and leave.  Do not stay while buyers look around.  Its uncomfortable and they will not stay long.  You could potentially lose your buyer because you want to show them the great features and all they want to do is leave because they feel very uncomfortable.

What do I need to do to sell my house? Tips on cleanup the outside

What do I need to do to sell my house? I thought of this as I was painting the outside trim of my house this weekend. I had a neighbor come up to me and state “I didn’t know you were moving?” I told them I wasn’t and they said “well why are you repainting your trim..” I had to laugh because my husband had said the same thing to me earlier in the day. “It doesn’t look bad I don’t know why you are wasting your time repainting the trim.”

Preventative maintenance is key to keeping your home in good shape. It also helps it look a lot nicer. It is amazing what some missing paint chips will do to the appearance of a home. So if you have neglected some regular maintenance items of your home here is a small list of to-do’s to help you get started so your home will look better, sale faster and get you top dollar.

Tip #1: Take pictures before, during and after: Sometimes your eyes will not show you how others see your home. For a better feel, take pictures and look at them online. Make sure to zoom in and you’ll really notice the difference. We get used to what we see day in and day out year after year. Your pictures may startle you.

Exterior: Here are just a few tips and items to consider:

Again take pictures from all angles. You will be amazed at what you see..

Make sure your downspouts are fastened and not blowing in the breeze.

Clean up the yard, edge the walkways, trim the bushes

Throw stuff away

During the winter make sure ice and snow are removed from walkways

Summer: make sure the lawn if taken care of and watered

Remove the dog/animal presents from the grass

De-clutter any areas and that includes pulling weeds and removing dead plants/trees.

Paint the trim and any exterior areas that need it

make sure you check your handrails for rust *if rusty paint them

Make sure that they are sturdy.

Clean your windows

Garage: remove the clutter and please make sure all doors leading into the home are clean and well taken care of

Take some time to replace the seals around your doors too. As they walk up they shouldn’t be able to see inside before they open the door.

 

MAKE SURE YOUR KEY WORKS TO LET THE BUYER IN THE FRONT DOOR

Clean up your front entrance. The front entry is key to a first impression. I have never had a buyer say wow this front entry is NASTY …I bet they take great care of the home… lets go inside..

Take time to show pride in ownership. It goes a long ways. I have had a lot of buyers over the years never make it inside because of what they see when we pull up to the home. A clean, maintained home will welcome the buyer and put them at ease as they enter your home. You want them to smile as they walk up and as they walk into the home.

Part 2 (preparing the inside of the home tomorrow)

Why all buyers need a buyers agent representing them and their goals

What does a buyers agent do and why do I need one

What to expect when you hire me as your buyer broker.  I certainly do more than just open doors and drive

buyer broker juggling all the detailsaround.  A lot of people do not realize that as a buyers agent you are really juggling a lot of balls in the air to coordinate, negotiate and bring the deal to a close.

My fiduciary duty is to look out for the buyer.  Buyers need to realize that they are the ones who benefit from hiring a buyers agent to represent them.  The listing agent has the fiduciary duty to the seller, not the buyer.  Remember the old saying, buyer beware…… (always have an agent represent you and only you)
 

Below is a very brief overview of my major steps during a home purchase.  As we all know each and every transaction is different and no two buyers, sellers or homes have the same issues.  There is no way to put a complete list together without it looking like the action booksI used to read in about4th grade: you remember the books that you had options on all the way thru,,,, if you want to open this door go to page 53 if not continue reading… you get my point.

 

Overview of Steps Necessary in 99% of the transactions:

  • Initial interview to find out more about buyers situation
  • buyers must get a preapproval and meet with lender
  • once you have a preapproval letter we go over letter the letter and conditions
  • Review of initial buyer interview, review of what you are looking for and why you are moving.  check to see if anything has changed since meeting with the lender
  • types of homes available (HUD, short sales, foreclosures, fsbo etc)
  • types of sellers (short sales, foreclosures, HUD, FSBO, etc)
  • how fast the market is moving based on what your looking for and qualify for
  • a brief overview of the forms and what to expect paperwork wise
  • paperwork sent over email, or delivered to buyer recapping again what to expect, the process of buying a home, the do’s and don’t when it comes to buying a home these get initialed and added to my file
  • search for homes, not only on MLS but zillow, fsbo sites, local papers, nod’s: schedule appointments and research any initial red flags
  • farming for additional homes if inventory is low
  • viewing of homes
  • cma of home you want to purchase
  • sit down and explain in detail the legal documents you are signing and what they involve
  • negotiate offer

once under contract

  • order title work
  • contact lender
  • constant contact with all parties regarding deadlines and legal items
  • home inspector and due diligence items
  • attend inspection
  • meet to go over report
  • negotiate
  • keep in constant contact with lender about deadlines and issues
  • appraisal issues if any
  • walk thru
  • settlement
  • possession details

My goal is to help the buyer achieve their dream and to eliminate any unnessary stress and drama.  As a neutral party i am able to step away and look at the process thru what legally can and can not happen. Realtors are able to do this without the high level emotion of a buyer or seller may bring if they were dealing directly with one another. Selling and Purchasing Real Estate is one of the biggest /stressful investments many of us will ever do in our lifetime.  It is a legally binding agreement and a lot more complicated than the DIY networks make it seem.  Always consult a professional when selling or purchasing real estate.

 

***I’m thinking I should print this and keep it with me the next time I have someone ask me what I do for my money.
