When it comes to selling a home in Olympia, many homeowners become overwhelmed with all the details. Creating a list of questions is a good starting point. Questions can help you become more comfortable with the selling process. Additionally, answers to the questions can help you receive the best offer for your house. The first step is choosing how to sell your property, as real estate is not one size fits all. The approach you take should be best suited for your specific circumstances.
Having a clear understanding of the different options will help you make informed decisions. A traditional method is to use a real estate agent, while professional investors is another. However, there is some that act as a hybrid agent investors.
The following are the top five questions we’ve had regarding selling a house in Olympia over the years.
What Must I Disclose?
Another question you will want to ask is about the disclosure. You have to legally disclose known work completed without permits or defects that could prevent new owners from fully enjoying the property. If you are considering hiding something from potential buyers, you may prefer to directly sell to a hybrid agent investor such as those at Sound Home Buyer, working as a professional investor means you sleep stress-free. Future legal responsibility no longer has to be a concern, as any disclosures will become our concern after selling a house in Olympia.
Do I Need An Inspection?
Another common question is, do you need a home inspection when selling a house in Olympia? A pre-inspection is often recommended by hybrid agent investors, to help identify and fix any issues. Minor repairs can be negotiating tools with buyers. Is your property is older or there are major issues such as foundation or roof damage? Direct buyers at Sound Home Buyer will buy the property as-is, no repairs or inspections required. All concerns and repairs will no longer be your problem.
Does Staging Matter?
One more question about selling a house in Olympia is about the expenditure on staging a home. Acting as an agent. the hybrid agent investors at Sound Home Buyer advise staging because of the strong influence on buyers. When highly personal items are present, it inhibits moving beyond the sense of ownership these items represent. On the other hand, the depersonalization of the house allows buyers the freedom to visualize their belongings in the space during showings. If the thought of strangers walking through your home for showings keeps you from selling, working with the agent as a professional investor who will buy your home directly for a fair market price may be the solution you seek.
There is also the question of what must be left behind when selling a house in Olympia. Permanent attachments such as built-in cabinets or other items attached to walls or floors by which damage would result from removal, such as television mounts, should remain. Naturally, you’ll remove all personal property after the sale. In many cases, you may also take all or most of the appliances with you as well. Acting as an agent, an expert hybrid agent investor like those at Sound Home Buyer can help you create a list, including what possessions you may be willing to offer as an incentive to sweeten a deal with a prospective buyer. On the other hand, when working with your agent as a professional investor, you have the freedom to leave anything behind that you don’t want. Simply move into your new home, leave the clean-up behind.
How Much Will Selling Cost?
Many homeowners are concerned about the out-of-pocket expenses of selling a house in Olympia. Last but not least, another question they ask is the cost to list the home on the MLS with your hybrid agent investor acting as a real estate agent. One of the unique benefits is that each sales method will be detailed by the numbers, allowing you to estimate the costs to hold onto the property, market, and pay commissions compared to selling directly.
