Selling your home comes with many tasks, chores, and steps that all go toward closing. Most of these things are meant to make your home appealing to buyers and get that offer. But selling a home is more than just accepting an offer. After showing buyers how good your home looks, you need to convince them that it's in a state worth buying. This is where a home inspection comes in. A home inspection is often a deciding factor for the majority of home buyers, so you want to make sure it goes well. Here are our REALTORS® home inspection tips for sellers.
Spending more time at home provides a great opportunity to prepare your home and yard for the onslaught of summer heat. Every piece of your home needs maintenance to work efficiently and look great, especially if you'll soon be adding your home to the list of Midland homes for sale.
Our REALTORS® recommend this list of summer home maintenance tasks to complete while sheltering in place.
February 10th is National Home Warranty Day, and it's the perfect day to sit down and determine if the home you want to purchase requires a warranty. When our clients buy a home, our REALTORS® recommend carefully considering the options (and possible consequences) when making this critical decision.
Your home is one of the most significant investments you'll ever make. You'll invest time, money, and resources in the property as the years go by. Purchasing a warranty can give you peace of mind that if something goes wrong, all of the time and money you invest in the property won't go down the drain. At a typical cost of a few hundred dollars per year for a single-family home, a home warranty is a relatively inexpensive line-item in your budget.
As the weather gets warmer, it's time to pack up sweaters, coats, and boots in favor of shorts, t-shirts, and sandals. Your home is also ready to shake off winter and get a fresh new look for spring. Follow this handy checklist from our REALTORS® to have your home in Midland ready to wow the spring buyers.
