When the time comes to sell your house, you’ll want to determine roughly how much you can expect to net after the sale. To figure that out, you’ll not only need to know how much your house will likely sell for, but also the selling costs you are likely to incur in the process.
The costs of selling vary depending on a number of factors. Here’s a general rundown of what to consider:
You will want your house to look its best to buyers. That may require you to get any needed repairs done before listing. You don’t want a buyer to see a dent in the wall or a dripping faucet.
It might make sense to get a few improvements done to make the house more attractive. For example, replacing old and worn kitchen countertops.
• Legal fees.
Selling a house requires a lot of legal paperwork. You’ll need a good real estate lawyer to take care of that for you.
This is usually calculated as a percentage of the sale price.
• Moving costs.
Once you sell, you’ll obviously need to move! So, factoring in this expense is a smart idea.
Although this may seem like a long list, selling costs are actually fairly easy to estimate. Once you have that number, it’s a simple calculation to determine how much money you’ll have available to put towards your next dream home.
That’s information worth knowing!
You’ve probably heard the expression, “The early-bird gets the worm.” Applied to real estate, it simply means that the sooner you start working on your plans to sell your house, the more likely you are to be successful.
Say, for example, you’re thinking of selling this summer. You might think it’s too soon to start making plans, but it’s not. Starting the planning and preparation process well in advance will give you an advantage when you are ready to put your house on the market.
It will also make the process of selling your house a lot less stressful, because – to use another popular analogy – you’ll have “all your ducks in a row.”
So, if you’re planning on selling your house this year, or even just thinking about it, give me a call. I’ll explain what you need to do today to ensure your house is ready to sell quickly and for a good price.
All the best!
