Homes & Real Estate

Preparing Your Home to Sell is a Good Investment By Liz Concar, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services

Buying and selling a home is the largest financial transaction most of us will ever make. Millions of homes are sold each year and, while each transaction is different, every owner wants the same thing: the best possible deal with the least amount of hassle. Home selling has become more complex than it used to be. New seller disclosure statements, longer and more mysterious form agreements, and a range of environmental concerns have all emerged in the past decade. Today’s real estate world requires experience and training. Experienced RealtorsŽ cannot only handle the nuts and bolts of the real estate transaction, but also the steps required to get homes on the market to sell. First they will look at the home through the eyes of a prospective buyer and determine what needs to be cleaned, painted, repaired and tossed out. Cosmetic improvements such as paint, wallpaper, landscaping, etc., help a home show better and are often good investments. Mechanical repairs that ensure all systems and appliances Liz Concar, Sales Manager, are in good working condition are Howard Hanna Real required to get a top price. The home Estate Services must then be competitively priced with others in the community. Realtors see numerous homes and are able to provide suggestions that are consistent with your marketplace. Once the home is listed for sale, an experienced Realtor will market and promote the home where people are looking (online, newspapers, TV).
