I’ve seen it, heard it, and experienced it all. Let me lay down some Do’s and Don’ts for all my first time homebuyers, sellers, and owners out there.
Discuss sale price recommendations with your realtor. They can give input on what’s best for the current market.
Make your home available to buyers for as much time as possible per day.
Settle with the first mortgage rate quote you are given.
Ask questions that you wouldn’t be able to answer just by reading a home’s listing description.
Miss potential buyers by setting your sale price too high. Unrealistic pricing won’t showcase your home in its best light.
Have clutter, unfinished chores, or allow your pets to roam freely with unfamiliar guests.
Get mortgage rate quotes from different lenders within the same 45-day period.
Reveal information that would compromise your negotiating power, like your budget or level of interest in the home.
