home-renovations-budgetSelling a house is a challenge for any family. There are many factors that one must consider before listing their home. The emotional attachment to a house that has been a family home for all these years is one of big issues that clients must overcome. Having a real estate agent is the best option that plays a vital role in efficient sale process of any home.

Almost every home seller usually overspends on pre-sale home improvements or fails to properly prepare their home, most of times for lack of finances. Due to emotional and personal attachments, sellers mistakenly put accents in wrong places, creating a negative impact on sale. A home sale preparation is really a science that requires knowledge and experience. Properly prepared homes sell faster and generate more income. Sometimes it makes more sense to completely renovate a house before listing a it to generate maximum income. Please see our unique “Flip My Home” program that we offer our clients in such situations. Why loose the money that you entitled to. There is no reason to give it away to “home flippers”. It is your money and we feel that you deserve to keep it. The goal of this program is to maximize our client’s income from selling a property that our company completely renovates using own in-house financing options that will not cost a penny to a home owner. Clients receive income from increased property value. More money for your property absolutely at no charge to you! Renovation services are paid at the closing. There are thousands of families that loose their money from lack of funds for renovations. Instead of getting a market value for a renovated house, they are forced to sell their home for less than they could get due to poor condition of their home. “Flip My Home” program fixes this problem!

During initial visit, our agent would ask to walk through the entire house. An agent will address issues and benefits. And you can bet she or he will bring a flash light to see every corner of the house! We will go over the entire house, room by room, and will discuss all of the options of necessary preparation to expedite the sale of the home.

Then, we will discuss all the advantages that we will emphasize and the disadvantages that must be addressed. We do not believe in cover ups! Temporary solutions are a waste of money and will never bring good results or any increased value. During the house preparation it is imperative to fix all broken parts and make the necessary upgrades that will bring value for your house. It is a mistake to think that what feels outdated or obviously broken to you would not be noticeable to a buyer. Any home inspection will reveal all deficiencies and will become a negotiation tool of a buyer to force us to lower a price of a property offered for sale. We have helped many families prepare their homes for a successful sale. We don’t mind to get our hands dirty. We do all it takes to properly prep a home for a successful sale.

Some homes don’t really need a lot of preparation. Maybe a client purchased a new home at early construction stage and now is selling to gain on his or her investment. Other situation is where the walls was prepared for sale but the owners have outdated or too bulky furniture. In such situations we definitely recommend to stage a house. Please see our “Stage a House” page. We can definitely say, coming from many years of experience, that house staging works, it generates higher sale price and helps sell homes faster!
