Documented Proof with your Sellers Disclosures – There is a fair expectation on the part of sellers and buyers that a seller will do their best to disclose the facts about their home that might affect their property’s value. But, disclosing these facts – such as a repaired leaky roof or updated wiring - won’t help you if the issue comes up later and you can’t prove that you had that the work done because you don’t have any documentation to prove it! You definitely will sleep better when you take the time to make sure you have complete copies of the paperwork that supports your disclosure.
Earnest Deposit Money- Wow! It sure does feel fantastic when you get that first offer come in, doesn’t it! You’ve done a ton of work to get your home ready to list and when an offer comes quickly, you’ll be tempted to say, “Where do I sign?” But, hold on: getting a great offer is just the first step. Part of being a prudent seller is scrutinizing the offer and buyer to gauge the likelihood that the deal will close. The amount of earnest money should demonstrate the prospect’s sincere intent to buy…not just their desire to tie up the house while they make up their mind!
Exclusions..after the fact.. - There’s nothing that’ll sour those warm and fuzzy feeling quicker between buyer and seller than when – at the last minute – you surprise your buyer by telling them that you intend to take your fabulous washer/dryer (or heirloom chandelier, or custom closet system) with you because you forgot to exclude them. Now, it is part of my job as your agent to go over the more obvious items when listing your home, but even so, it’s ultimately up to you to make sure your intent is known, up front. Trust me - I’ve seen more than one sale go south in the eleventh hour over some unbelievably minor items.
These are just a few of some of the “avoidable” pitfalls and I’ll be happy to help you stay clear of them so if you’re thinking of listing your home inour neck of the woods this spring, give me a call and we’ll glide through it all together!
I do hope you're intrigued to learn more about our wonderful Northeast PA life! So, let's connect a few other ways too!......
