What you don't know about carrying costs can hurt you!
WHAT ARE CARRYING COSTS?
CARRYING COSTS ARE THE COST OF KEEPING YOUR HOUSE ON THE MARKET
AND READY TO SHOW WHILE IT IS FOR SALE.
CARRYING COSTS INCLUDE:
THE BIG THREE! NO WIGGLE ROOM!
SURELY THAT IS ENOUGH!
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE?
DON'T EVEN THINK OF SKIPPING THE UTILITIES WHEN YOUR HOUSE IS ON THE MARKET, UNLESS YOU LOVE MISERY!!!
SURELY THAT'S IT -
NO THERE'S MORE -
7. LANDSCAPING UPKEEP. (WHEN YOU DON'T MOW THE GRASS, SOME CITIES WILL FINE YOU)
8. HOMEOWNER'S ASSOC. FEES (FOR SOME)
YES, THAT'S IT, except
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE still has to be done.
and sometimes UNEXPECTED REPAIRS COME UP while the home is on the market like heating/airconditioning or plumbing.
Add all these costs together and these are your carrying costs.
Carrying costs are the costs that a seller has to pay every month UNTIL the house is SOLD.
The only way out of paying carrying costs is to SELL the house.
To SELL the HOUSE FASTER, get a STAGING CONSULTATION to help get your home in top market ready condition.
