    Top 5 Mistakes Sellers Make When Selling Their Home

    Top 5 Mistakes Sellers Make When Selling Their Home

    The process of selling a house can be daunting; from understanding how the market operates to managing the expectations of potential buyers. But if you’re willing to put in some work, there are a number of ways to sell your home quickly and for more money. And the first is knowing the most common mistakes made by sellers and doing the work to avoid them yourself.
     
    In this episode, Loren, Chris, and Cassidy reveal the mistakes they’ve seen many sellers make. Save yourself a lot of time, money, and effort with your home sale – tune in!
     
    What you’ll learn:
    The number one mistake when selling their house: not preparing it properly. This involves cleaning, maintaining, repairing, fixing, and all the other things that go behind making your house sale ready.The second mistake sellers make when selling your house: pricing the house too high. There are three pricing strategies you can adopt: Price your home right at the market, and you'll get the normal amount of buyers coming and have normal competition, Price it a bit lower than the competition, and you’ll create a feeding frenzy. Everybody would then see it as a deal, and may even end up driving the price up, or Overpricing, which is definitely not the way to go, especially in recent times as the buyers become savvier.The third mistake sellers make is not making their house available for showings as much as possible.The fourth mistake is not investing in an agent. A good agent will make sure you disclose things that you need to disclose and catch problems before they become a problem.The fifth mistake people make when selling their house is not considering their financial situation. Not considering the broader financial situation: the closing costs, concessions, fees, etc.

    What to Do if You Can't Afford to Sell Your House or It's "Underwater"

    What to Do if You Can't Afford to Sell Your House or It's "Underwater"

    What can you do if you’re “underwater” with your home or cannot afford to sell it for whatever reason? 
    An underwater mortgage situation is when your home purchase loan has a higher principal than what it’ll sell for. There are different ways to go about it, depending on whether or not you can still afford the payments. In this episode, Loren, Chris, and Cassidy explain adjustable-rate mortgages, short sales, and rentals to help you get an idea of the options you have in every situation, no matter how bad it is.
    What you’ll learn:
    What does it mean to be underwater with your home?What can you do if you can’t afford to sell your house?Think if you can rent it and how much you can ask as rent. If you decide to rent your home out, make sure the numbers make sense.Refinance your mortgage. Having a conversation with your lender about refinancing can help you get into a better spot.Look at a potential short sale. Negotiate with the lender to take less than what's owed on the home because it makes sense for them to do it based on the situation. Remember, the only real reason to do a short sale is if it’s the only option.Talk to a professional about it before deciding on what to do.
