Next, think of your “nest” as an investment property, get rid of those sweet little feelings we call emotions and make sure you are making a sound business decision and not one based on the memorable moments you had in your home, or the special paint you paid extra for, or the expensive window treatments, or the Zoysia grass you put in rather than the run-of-the-mill sod. Think of it this way, when a breeder sells his horse, he doesn’t look to get back the money he spent on the feed, he just wants the best market value price for his investment. In other words, let it go. You have brought your home up to today’s standard and that’s what a buyer is looking for. Some people like surprises but this is one time, surprises from a home inspection resulting in many non-working items, is not one of them. Hire a qualified home inspector to check out your home’s systems and roof. If you have a pool, inspect that and the mechanicals that go along with it. A clean inspection report is one of those inexpensive items that gives a buyer a huge amount of confidence and can propel them to submitting an offer. It indicates pride of ownership which goes a long way for confidence with the buyer. And last but not least, have a plan ready for the sale of your property and the logistics that will need to happen to make it a smooth transaction. In other words, get yourself pre-qualified, start looking for alternative housing so you aren’t freaking out when you do get an offer. And, if you have your plan and have conducted the above items, you will get an offer sooner rather than later. Happy Selling!
