Don’t Let Your House Sale Goes Wrong – Have Major Repairs Done
I could never believe when I first got into the process of selling my own home that in the entire two years that it took to sell the home, I spent only about 1% of my time on repairs. I was very active in my home selling the home, but I really only concentrated on getting the word out and making sure that my buyers knew about my properties. In fact, I actually completely forgot about fixing any of the problems that I had. By the end of the second year of selling my own home, I had only one repair left to do, and that was a leaky pipe in the basement.
The whole point of selling your own home is to have it sold, and you don’t want to wait until you’ve already gotten a few offers and found that your price has gone down. I was very eager to get started on the next phase of my business and getting ready to sell the house #2, but I was very dismayed at how quickly my house sales fell off. I blame it largely on the lack of buyer interest in my homes. Most buyers go out of their way to avoid having to deal with house repairs, which is a real shame because if the buyers do make an offer on your home, they’ll usually be looking for a brand new house with no repairs. This will typically mean that the buyer’s budget won’t be able to handle the repairs on the home, which results in them moving on to the next home on their list without giving you a chance to try to sell house #3.
Don’t let your frustrations get the best of you and try to ignore the fact that you are going to need repairs in order to sell house #3. People need to know that you are actually trying to keep the house in good shape so that they can be prepared to make an offer. I know that this may be discouraging for some people, but believe me when I say that you are doing the very best you can to make sure that potential buyers see that you care about keeping your home in the best condition possible. It may not be easy to do because you want to get your property sold, but believe me when I tell you that it will be worth it in the end.
