What You Should Know Before Selling
Okay, you see the market is crazy, all these different brokerages that have these automatic estimators on their site tell you that your house is now worth twice what you paid for it four years ago, it's probably true, your house is probably worth twice what you paid for it five years ago. So you're ready to sell, well, what does that look like? There's a few things you should know before you put your house on the market, first of all, renovations, not all renovations are needed. Don't start renovating things that you "think" a potential buyer might like, you don't want to do that. You want to look for safety issues, so the way the market sits right now, we're looking more for safety issues like if the roof is at the end of its life, the A/C is at the end, water heater, electrical panel box. Those are all things that buyers are looking for, and more than buyers, buyers' insurance companies are looking for that as well. I know it seems a little impossible, but it is true unless you get a clean four point and those things are up to date. They might not be able to get insurance which is a reason they could not buy the house or potentially no one can buy your house, that is definitely a problem, but that said, if you're ready to put your house on the market, I would ask you to look around, make sure it's clean, decluttered, and that you look like there's so much room in this house.
