Some Tips That Will Set You Apart From Other Sellers

 Get a Home Inspection.

Most buyers will have a home inspection of your property.  Depending on what the inspector finds will determine whether or not your buyer will want to continue.

Usually the items are reasonably small but if you have a first-time home buyer most things will scare them.  Depending on the severity of the item, they may back out.

One solution is to get your own home inspection.  They usually run between $250-$300.
This way you will get ahead of the game.  You will have the opportunity to fix things before the buyer has their inspection.

Many buyers are also having a hydro-static test and there has been an increase in problems concerning it.  It would be a good idea to have this done, too.

Get A Home Warranty

Quite often a buyer will ask for you to provide a Home Warranty.  Most Warranty companies has a "seller's coverage".  Many companies offer this for free for the seller as long as the buyer's coverage is paid for at closing.  This will protect you through the process if anything happened to your heat or air or hot water heater.  It covers other things, too.  You can review the coverages when you put the plan in place.

There are lots of other important things to prepare your house for sale.  Staging and pre-packing are two very important things and most Realtors will advise their clients to do both of those.

If you do the Inspection and Home Warranty you will be way ahead of other sellers

Probably a good idea especially on an older home. Just lost a deal to many items on the inspection. Seller might have fixed the issues beforehand.

I have every time gotten the home inspection in place.  Not all sellers want to pay for an inspection but I think it would be cheaper than all the repairs that the buyer wants!
