4 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster

These are great -- especially the first one. I have an exercise for every seller out there. Step outside your home, take off your "seller" hat, and put on your "buyer" hat. Then go through your home and be objective. Look at everything as though you were thinking of buying it, and write a list of the things you don't like that might turn you off from buying that home. Then address everything on the list, because every other buyer is going to do the same thing. If you want TOP DOLLAR, make into something you'd pay top dollar for.

Since June of last year, we have seen an increase in the inventory of homes for sale month per month. Every spring and summer, the inventory increases because people want to sell their home. For those with children, they may want to be in their new home for the beginning of the school year.

Is Mortgage Debt out of Control?

While mortgage debt is high, but compared to % of disposable income, we're at an all time low. And, people are sitting on a whole bunch of equity. :)

The housing crisis of the last decade was partially caused by unhealthy levels of mortgage debt. Homeowners were using their homes as ATMs by refinancing and swapping their equity for cash.

Know What to Expect at Your Home Inspection

It's important to remember -- the home inspection is to determine if things are operating as they should be, not to say things are old and should be replaced. If you get to the point of having a home inspection, you've already seen how old things are, and are assuming they are working properly. The Illinois contract has actually changed the wording regarding this so it doesn't become an issue later.

So you made an offer and it was accepted. Now, your next task is to have the home inspected prior to closing. Agents oftentimes make your offer contingent on a clean home inspection.

2 Things You Need to Know to Properly Price Your Home

Price it right -- or get ready to sit on the market a long time.

In today’s housing market, home prices are increasing at a slower pace (3.7%) than they have over the last eight years (6-7%). However, they are still are above historical norms. Low supply of listed homes and high demand from buyers has pushed prices to rise rapidly.

The Impact Staging Your Home Has On Your Sale Price [INFOGRAPHIC]

Staging can make a huge difference. If potential buyers come into a cluttered home, it's hard for them to image it as anything BUT cluttered. Remove clutter, and stage appropriately, and you'll likely see more money, in a shorter amount of time.

Some Highlights: The National Association of Realtors surveyed their members & released the findings of their Profile of Home Staging. 62% of seller’s agents say that staging a home decreases the amount of time a home spends on the market. 50% of staged homes saw a 1-10% increase in dollar-value o...

Starting the Search for Your Dream Home? Here Are 5 Tips!

I think #2 is the most important -- pay attention to the things that "can't" change, like location, school district, lot size, neighbors, etc. Most other things can change with a little investment, but moving the train tracks or the power lines out of the back yard, probably isn't going to happen.

In today’s real estate market, low inventory dominates the conversation in many areas of the country. It can often be frustrating to be a first-time homebuyer if you aren’t prepared.
