5 Types Of Clients That Sales Representatives See Everyday

Sales representatives work with hundreds of different clients looking to buy and sell homes throughout their career. While there are certainly unique clients that pose questions and circumstances that sales representatives would say they have never seen before, these professionals can lovingly sort the majority of their clients into 5 separate categories.

It is important to know that different sales representatives classify clients informally based on their own unique set of standards and expectations. This is in no way meant to offend individuals or groups.

 

Those That Know Exactly What They Are Looking For

5 Types Of Clients That Sales Representatives See EverydayIt is not uncommon for a potential buyer to meet with a sales representative knowing exactly what they would like a home to have. These lists could outline a few details that would make or break a sale, but more than likely these lists are very long and non-negotiable. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to fill every request that a client may have. This is especially true if the budget is too low to include the homes that have many or all of these requirements.

 

Those That Ask Questions At Every Opportunity

Sales representatives see quite a few new buyers and sellers that are very interested in the process and ask as many questions as they can think of. Professionals generally welcome these questions and answer them to the best of their advantage, but the process significantly slows down for the clients that ask the same question over and over again. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be educated, but clients are advised to be aware that excessive questions could lengthen the buying or selling process.

 

Those That Are Not Proactive During The Buying Or Selling Process

A sales representative is a professional that helps clients to buy and sell homes as they need or want to do so. It is exceptionally frustrating when a client visits a sales representative with the expectation that the representative will take care of everything without any input, direction, or interaction of any sort from the client. In order for a sales representative to do their job efficiently a client must be able to communicate with them often, give input, and sign paperwork periodically. While it may not be the most exciting or joyous time in a person’s life, sales representatives really need all clients to be somewhat proactive in their own buying or selling process.

 

Those That Fall In Love On The Spot

Sales representatives meet quite a few clients looking to buy a house that do not really know exactly what they are looking for or what is available to them in their price range. When presented with a variety of options on paper, in magazines, or online these clients may love everything or may wish to wait to see the home in person. Once the client arrives at their next potential home, they simply fall in love with the home that they are looking at. The problem arises when a buyer falls in love with every home that they visit.

 

Those That Cannot Be Pleased With Any Outcome

There are individuals in Canada that are buying or selling a house because they have no other choice. These individuals would most likely rather just stay where they are. While circumstances vary greatly, these clients never seem pleased. Clients may be offered more money than they were asking for the home, may buy a home for significantly less than it had been listed for, or may have been relieved of fees for one reason or another and still cannot find joy in the situation. It is hard for a sales representative to see clients unhappy which makes this a hard group to represent.

How To Fix Up Your New Fixer Upper
Posted on Sun, 30 Apr 2017, 01:20:00 PM  in Home buying tips
Tags:,  ,    

It takes a very ambitious person to take a home in disrepair and make it fresh, clean, and new again. If this is exactly what you are, then keep on reading for a few tips and tricks to making your journey just a little bit easier.

 How To Fix Up Your New Fixer Upper

Look At The Foundation First

When you are looking into buying a home to fix up, look at the foundation first. Make sure to ask your sales representative what they know about the house and the condition of this very important structure. A crumbling or cracked foundation may mean that the house cannot actually be saved or used in the way that you would like it to be. Foundations that are in good or great condition can be stabilized and reinforced much more often than those that are in very poor shape.

 

Always Do The Research On Roofing Materials

The majority of houses that are sold and purchased as fixer uppers will need to have the roof replaced or redone. Canadian winters can truly take a toll on the roofs of houses, both fixer uppers and those sold as “ready to live in”. If you are brand new to buying and fixing up houses, then you will quickly realize that the number of choices you have to choose from will be overwhelming. Do your research on the area you live in, the different roofing materials pros and cons, and what you can actually afford to spend on the materials necessary to redo the roof.

 

Keep Your End Goal In Mind

If you are fixing up the house to live in, then you have very little to worry about. You will be fixing the house exactly how you would want it. If you are fixing up the house to sell, then consider what the market is looking for. Does your neighborhood need a house with antique charm, an enclosed porch, and a row of fruit trees? Do the majority of houses on the market have brand new wooden floors and multiple bathrooms? If you know what the market is looking for, then deliver on those desires to the extent of your ability.

 

Consider Completely Replacing The Floors

Most carpets, laminates, and wooden floors in fixer uppers are in total and complete disrepair. These floors are crumbling, moldy, broken, and incredibly dangerous. If these floors have asbestos in them or other dangerous spores and fibers, then they can cause a great deal of harm to anyone that moves into the house. In order to completely eradicate this fear and use this as a marketing strategy, simply replace all of the flooring. If you can afford to replace all of the flooring with real hardwood floors then do so. This will give new owners the option to add carpet or keep the hardwood. If you can only afford to do hardwood in one or two rooms, put this in the kitchen and bathroom. The other rooms can be reasonably carpeted for an affordable price. It is totally reasonable to put carpet in bedrooms and the living room.

 

Take Home Advice

Buying a fixer-upper certainly takes a lot of trust, courage, and ambition. Congratulations on being that person. You are saving a beautiful piece of architecture from crumbling to pieces and being lost in history forever. Hopefully the tips above will help you to make this process as easy as possible with the greatest amount of personal satisfaction.

Choosing A Sales Representative To Meet Your Needs
Posted on Sat, 15 Apr 2017, 01:15:00 PM  in My services
Tags:,  ,    

Are you thinking of buying or selling a house in Canada. It can be a tricky process to go through if you have to do it all on your own. That is why most professionals will recommend that you hire a Sales representative to meet your needs. There are plenty of them around, so do not feel bad about passing a few up if they just don’t feel right to you.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a sales representative to meet your needs:

 Choosing A Sales Representative To Meet Your Needs

You Have To Trust Them

If you are hiring a sales representative to buy or sell a house for you in today’s market, then it is imperative that you trust them completely. You are literally handing your rights to this person and asking them to make deals that will have a significant impact on you, your family, and anyone else that is involved. If you feel like they are not telling you the truth then you need to move on to an representative that you feel will be completely honest with you. If you feel like your representative just isn’t doing all that they can to help you, then you and your loved ones deserve to move on until you can find a representative that will do just that. You never have to settle for a representative that doesn’t meet your needs and that cannot be trusted. There are plenty out there that will listen to you and earn your trust in all of the ways that you need them to.

 

Don’t Be Afraid To Investigate

You have every right to ask your sales representative about their qualifications, certifications, licenses, and experiences. These professionals should be happy to tell you all about the wonderful things that they have accomplished for families just like yours. Do not be afraid to ask for proof as these representatives should be treating the first meeting or two like an interview. They should have resumes, profiles, and experiences all mapped out for you to view while you are getting to know them. You may also do a bit of research online to find out if they have a valid license that is currently in good standing. You have every right to find out who you will be handing your information to.

 

If You Are Selling, Ask For Their Opinions

If you are selling a house, then you will likely need their opinion on how to do certain things within the house. You are going to want to ask them such things as how much your house is worth, and what you can do to ensure that your house sells quickly. You are going to want to ask them what factors of your house diminish or take away from the price you would like to get for your home. You may even ask what about your house is unique and how to play up the features of your house that you would like to showcase.

 

Ask About Paperwork Upfront

You never want to find yourself in a situation where your sales representative is constantly giving you paperwork to sign that you had no idea existed. A crucial part to getting to know your representative is asking them about paperwork upfront. If these agents are willing to work with you, then they will not be afraid to let you know about all of the signatures that you’re going to have to provide during this process.

4 Renovations that Could Have the Best Return On Investment
Posted on Fri, 31 Mar 2017, 03:05:00 PM  in Home selling tips
Tags:,  ,    

 Remodeling may seem like a lot of work and wasted money, but it could actually earn you money in the long-term. The renovations not only make the home better for you to live in now, but the changes could look very attractive to buyers if you decide to sell your home in the near future. Here are some of the home improvements that could provide a good return on investment.

 4 Renovations that Could Have the Best Return On Investment

New Siding

Replacing the old siding of your home with new vinyl is an improvement that will be well worth the costs. Many homeowners get back a significant percentage of their money on this type of renovation when it’s time to sell the property. Adding the new vinyl to your home will increase its curb appeal and attract more buyers. Most homeowners do not think about replacing old siding unless it is damaged. Other sellers will clean it with a power washer. Keep in mind that this is a recognizable feature that should be upgraded when you have the time and money. When replacing the siding, take your time to choose the best color. White can show dirt more easily; taupe is a popular color amongst homeowners.

 

Install a New Garage Door

Although a lot of people may be accustomed to using the front door or other entrances, most homeowners will want to utilize the garage. Upgrading this feature is one of the highest returns on investment that homeowners can make. You should think of the garage as part of the face of a home; it is one of the first things that potential buyers will see, and it is something that they will take a further look at once they walk through the property. This means the “face” of the garage should look nice, and the garage should be in good working condition. Some of the current trends include garage doors with windows or carriage-style doors. Facsimiles and natural wood are popular amongst new buyers.

 

New Floors

Wood floors are becoming more popular amongst young buyers, in comparison to carpeted floors. Therefore, installing wood floors is a great selling feature that could recoup almost all of its cost. Oak is one of the most popular wood floors that sellers should install. It is best to use hardwood floors instead of engineered products because those products typically contain formaldehyde. You want to choose high-quality floors that will last longer and remain in great condition, despite normal wear and tear. Wood floors are easier to maintain, which is why homes with these floors sell better than homes that have carpeted floors. Young homeowners do not want the task of constantly having the floors professionally cleaned or pulled up and replaced, which is necessary with carpet flooring.

 

A New Roof

This is one of the top home improvements that could recoup its costs in the long-term. In fact, installing a new roof could actually earn homeowners more money than they spend on the renovation. Although a new roof does not lead buyers to choose a house, it could be the reason that they decline on the property. The fact is that most buyers do not know if a roof is in good condition or not. However, almost all buyers will have an inspection done prior to making an offer. The roof would need to pass the inspection, and if it doesn’t, the buyer could decline on the property or negotiate a significant drop in the asking price.

When you are ready to make some improvements to your home, consider these upgrades. The changes will not only make your home look better, it will attract potential buyers in the future, offering a great return on investment.

Questions to Ask When Selling Your First Canadian Dream Home
Posted on Wed, 15 Mar 2017, 03:10:00 PM  in Home selling tips
Tags:,  ,    

Congratulations on selling your first Canadian home. It is hard to let go of the first home that you have lived in. There are memories in the walls, under the floors, in the backyard, and in the kitchen. You have planted flowers with your mom in the garden and cooked cookies for your school functions in the the oven. You have a lot that you are going to miss and that is perfectly okay. We are here to ensure that the process goes as smoothly for you as it possibly can.

 Questions to Ask When Selling Your First Canadian Dream Home

Let Go Of The Things You Can’t Control

There is a reason you are selling your first Canadian home. You may have a new job, for example. Maybe you have a loved one across the country that you need to help. Maybe you just want to travel. Whatever the reason is, you’re going to have to comes to terms with the fact that you are in fact selling your home. It is okay. This process is indeed hard.

 

Questions To Ask The Real Estate Agent

You will have many questions to ask the real estate agent because you are new to this business of selling your home. You have never gone through the motions, especially with the emotions you likely have toward your house. So below you will find a list of questions you should consider asking your real estate agent upon putting your house up for sale.

 

How Much Do You Think My House Is Worth?

Never assume that you know exactly how much your house is worth. It could be worth millions if you live in a mansion by the sea with an excellent view from all 14 bedrooms, but your first house probably is not that mansion. YOu should ask your real estate agent what they think your home is worth. They have seen multiple homes in the area and have sold houses competitively because their livelihood depends on it. They will know what your house is worth and what it will sell for. They will also recommend that you be flexible in the likelihood that a buyer would like to counter your offer. Flexibility is key to selling your home quickly and efficiently.

 

What Are Your Qualifications?

Never be afraid to ask what a real estate agent’s qualifications are. They are trained to be open and honest about this information because it means either the sale of a home or the chance that it sits for a year or longer. You will be able to find this information online as well as in person. If this individual does not want to share this information with you then simply move on. There are a thousand and more agents that would love to represent you, and they will have qualifications that they wouldn’t mind sharing. Honesty is always the best policy when engaging with an agent.

 

Are You Flexible?

Find an agent that will be flexible with you in just about every way that you could ask for. Ask them if they are willing to meet you at a mutually beneficial time instead of only the times that they proposed if they do not work for you. Ask them if they will be flexible with the fees that they have as well. Any agent that wants to see you succeed will know that you have to be flexible and will want to meet you halfway. If they aren’t flexible, step away and find a new agent.

Tips for Flipping a House
Posted on Tue, 28 Feb 2017, 10:10:00 AM  in Home selling tips
Tags:,  ,    

House flipping can be one of the best ways for you to make an advantageous purchase and sell it for a large profit in the future. Like many other investments, however, it is important for individuals to plan ahead accordingly and work with local market conditions to get the most out of their next big sale. If you are interested in pursuing a career in house flipping, it is strongly recommended for you to follow some of these tips and see what a difference they can make in your career. The tips can be particularly helpful for those just entering the industry.

 Tips for Flipping a House

Always Stick to a Budget

One of the most important things that all home flippers should remember is the meaning of ARV. The term stands for After Repair Value, and it is identified as the amount of money that the property is going to sell for after it has been repaired and dressed up. One of the most important rules of thumb to remember is to never be in the process of repairing the property for more than 70 percent of the home's ARV. Calculations needs to be made carefully and accurately to make sure that you can maximize your profits without having to worry about potential pricing issues in the future.

 

Know the Local Market

Another important thing to remember is that each housing market is different. What one home may go for in one state or region may drastically change in another. Knowing what to expect can allow you to prepare accordingly and invest in the appropriate tools to get the job done. If there is a niche for the property, it is a good idea to learn more about it and determine how you can benefit in the future. Always try to stay one step ahead of the curve in terms of market prices and trends, and try to know what factors can make a deal better.

 

Know the Buyers

In addition to learning as much as you can about the market, it is crucial for you to learn as much as you can about the buyers as well. Once the numbers have been figured out, it becomes a matching game for potential shoppers. Not all home buyers are the same, but knowing what to expect along different price ranges can be just what you need to prepare yourself for open houses and staging days. Learn as much as you can about the audience and try to think about the local neighborhood in terms of amenity advantages.

 

Show Your Work Off

Be proud of the work that you put into the property. You had to work through all types of issues to make that unique property stand out on its own. When it is time to set up a showing day or prepare the staging for the sale itself, it is important for you to make it look like you take pride in the work that you do. Not only is this a necessary strategy to draw attention, but it can also be one of the best ways for you to build your personal credibility.

 

Do Not Get Greedy

Try your hardest to avoid overvaluing the home as well. Speak with your customers and try to get a feel for the market as best as you can before you make the final adjustments to the price. Though every market is different, there are always trends to watch out for that can help define the work that you do. When in doubt, consult with other agents and see what they may think about the property's final value.

A New Home Versus an Older Home: Drawbacks and Benefits
Posted on Wed, 15 Feb 2017, 10:05:00 AM  in Home buying tips
Tags:,    

If you were to ask most potential homeowners, they'd love to buy a brand-new home versus one that was built a few decades ago. Sometimes, it comes down to personal preferences, but there are some definite benefits and drawbacks to purchasing a newly built home.

 A New Home Versus an Older Home: Drawbacks and Benefits

 Benefits to Purchasing New or Having a Home Built

  1. Customization

If you've ever lived in an older home, you know that there are many tweaks that should have been made while it was being constructed. You can make those changes to accommodate your lifestyle. That includes the huge master suite, massive family room and office space you want.

 

  1. Design Elements

Along with the size of the rooms, you can choose design elements to fit your family like an eat-in kitchen or a walk-in closet. You can choose everything down to the paint colour in your newly built home.

 

  1. New Home New Everything

With a new home, you're getting all the newest wiring and technology. That includes alarm systems, cable and media sound. If you're a fan of technology, this is essential in a new home.

 

  1. Less Maintenance

New homes mean that along with the wiring, all the appliances and HVAC equipment is brand-new. You won't have to worry about costly repairs or maintenance for a while. In the case of the heating and air, you'll want to do some seasonal maintenance, but nothing expensive.

 

  1. New House Smell

Everything in the new home should be absolutely perfect and customized to exactly what you want in the home. That means a beautiful new house smell so to speak. There'll be no flaws or disappointing elements for you to have to deal with in your new home.

 

 Drawbacks to the Newly Built Home

  1. The Cost

New homes can cost thousands and thousands more than an older home. You're paying for the new home's perfection. When you're discussing the things you want with a builder, you'll want to be careful about the costs or they could skyrocket quite easily.

 

  1. Additional Amenities

When you're shopping for a new home, the model you've seen can actually cost a lot more than you expect. Upgrades and additional amenities can really start to accumulate. It can end up costing even more.

 

  1. Missing the Quaintness

When you buy a new home, you're not getting any of the quaint charm you'd find in an older home. That's also true of the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood, trees and landscaping will be new too.

 

  1. Travel Time

New neighbourhoods are often away from the main parts of the city. You'll end up away from your usual markets and shopping destinations as well as the children's schools and other activities.

 

  1. Construction Zone

If you're one of the first homeowners in a new neighbourhood, you'll likely be living in a construction zone for a few years while the rest of the homes are built. Along with the noise, there'll be plenty of dust and dirt flying around too.

When you factor in the benefits and the drawbacks, you'll likely have your decision about whether a new home makes sense for you and your family. If technology and new construction and amenities are important, you'll want to go with a newly built home instead of an older one. When your idea of a home is large trees along shaded walks with quaint details, you'll likely want an older house.

What You Should Know About Restrictive Covenants
Posted on Tue, 31 Jan 2017, 10:05:00 AM  in Home buying tips
Tags:,  ,    

If you are considering buying a home in a planned subdivision, there is a good chance that you will become part of a homeowners’ association, commonly referred to as an HOA. One of the jobs of an HOA is to protect the property values within the community. One way an HOA does this is by requiring member homeowners to pay monthly, semi-annual, or yearly fees. These funds are used to maintain the common areas of the community. Another way is through a set of rules known as restrictive covenants that govern what homeowners in the community can and cannot do with their property.

 What You Should Know About Restrictive Covenants

Examples of Restrictive Covenants:

Restrictive covenants can vary widely between communities. These covenants can cover numerous issues, including

  • the colors that you can use to paint your home,
  • the type of landscaping that you can plant,
  • the size or breed of dog that you can own,
  • the type of window coverings allowed,
  • the number and type of vehicles that you can park on your property,
  • the height and type of fencing that you can install, and
  • whether you can install basketball hoops or other sporting equipment in your driveway.

A neighbourhood with an HOA that implements and enforces reasonable restrictive covenants will typically appear better maintained and see home values increase faster than a neighbourhood without an HOA.

 

Your Rights When Purchasing a Property in an HOA Community:

Once a seller accepts your offer, you are entitled to review the community’s covenants and by-laws. You should take advantage of this opportunity since you are expected to abide by the rules whether you have read them or not. If you find the terms unacceptable, you are normally entitled to back out of the contract without penalty within a certain number of days. Another option is to bring the issue to the attention of the HOA board to see if an exception can be made.

 

What Happens if You Violate an HOA Rule?

The consequences for violating a restrictive covenant vary from community to community. In most cases, you will be issued a warning advising you to remedy the situation. If you fail to do so, you may receive a fine.

 

The Benefits of an HOA:

While some homeowners are reluctant to be told what they can and cannot do with their property, an HOA does offer some significant benefits, including access to more recreational amenities and a better community aesthetic. You will also typically have fewer maintenance concerns in an HOA community since mowing, snow removal, and even trash service are often included in your dues.

 

Restrictive Covenants Can be Changed:

In most cases, restrictive covenants enacted by an HOA are reasonable and ensure that all residents of the community are able to enjoy their home and neighbourhood amenities to the fullest extent possible. Unfortunately, there are instances where HOA boards over-reach and tighten regulations to the point that they infringe on the rights of individual homeowners. In these instances, it is important to remember that restrictive covenants can be changed by a majority vote of the member homeowners.

Plan Your Garden in the Winter During a Snowstorm
Posted on Sun, 15 Jan 2017, 10:00:00 AM  in Marketing strategies
Tags:,  ,    

If you are stuck inside your home during a snowstorm in Canada, then it is a good time to plan your summer garden. Growing your own fruits, vegetables or herbs is easy, and you will save a lot of money when shopping for groceries at the local supermarket. If your property has a backyard, then it is the perfect place to have a garden, but you can also use a home’s balcony or deck to grow numerous plants. You don’t need to grow all of your plants in one area because adding flower beds to the pathways around your home is a great way to increase a property’s curbside appeal.

 Plan Your Garden in the Winter During a Snowstorm

Read Gardening Books and Join a Gardening Club

First, make a map of your home’s lawns and pathways to determine where you can plant flower, herb or vegetable seedlings. Next, borrow books from your local public library to learn more about how to choose the correct plants for your geographic zone. Find a gardening club in your city where there are experienced gardeners who can help you select the correct seeds and seedlings for your area. Call a few gardening stores to determine if it is possible to have your lawn’s soil tested to understand what types of fertilizers to add.

 

Buy Your Gardening Supplies As Early As Possible

During the winter, many stores will begin to offer an assortment of gardening supplies such as tools, flowerpots and fertilizers. If you want to grow your own seedlings, then it is good idea to begin buying packages of seeds, potting soil and small containers. It can take several weeks for seeds to grow to the correct size for transferring to your home’s outdoor garden. You can begin to fill the containers with potting soil long before planting the seeds, and you can have your container’s labeled in order to keep track of its planting date.

 

Choose From an Assortment of Gardening Plants

When you can’t find the seeds or seedlings that you want in a nearby gardening store, it is possible to order the items from an online retailer. Some of the plants that you can have in your Canadian garden include:

  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Bell peppers
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Broccoli
  • Strawberries
  • Basil
  • Chives

 

Plan How to Prepare Your Garden for Planting in the Spring

Before planting any seedlings in your garden, you must prepare the soil by digging it to remove the lumps and weeds. You can perform this job with tools such as shovels or trowels, but it is also possible to use machinery for this job. When you don’t want to invest a lot of money on gardening machines, hire someone to prepare your garden’s soil. The person who performs this job can also mix in the right types of fertilizer to enrich the garden’s soil so that you will have a bigger crop of produce.

 

Have a Daily Schedule to Care for Your Canadian Garden

Avoid planting your seedlings too early in the spring because Canada often has late winter weather that will damage the vegetable, herb and fruit plants. You can plant your seedlings in long rows with a pathway between different varieties, or you can use a square foot gardening method. After planting the seedlings, you must monitor your garden on a daily basis to pull weeds, water the plants or eradicate damaging pests. If you have problems with particular pests, then you can apply organic or man-made pesticides that will control flies, beetles and grasshoppers.

Questions To Ask Your Real Estate REALTORŪ
Posted on Sat, 31 Dec 2016, 10:55:00 AM  in Home selling tips
Tags:,  ,    

So you have decided to sell your home in Canada to the next wonderful couple that would like to enjoy it? Have you ever wondered what questions you should ask your real estate agent? Have you ever wondered how to pick out a real estate agent? Well, do not worry. We are here to cover some of the questions you are bound to have when picking up and selling your wonderful Canadian home.

 Questions To Ask Your Real Estate REALTORŪ

Be Prepared To Let Go of Your Home

You have to be prepared to let go of your home as you know it. When you decide to sell your home you have to be prepared to put your memories in a big book and let the home turn into a house. You can keep all of the memories and great times that you have had in the house, but you cannot be your own worst enemy when it comes to selling the home. Do not let yourself get in the way of a sale. If you have to ask your real estate agent how best to do this, then do that. They most certainly have had a lot of experience talking to other couples who have had a hard time letting their home go.

 

Who Are you?

You have every right to ask who will be representing you and the house that you are trying to sell. You have the right to ask the agent what their name is, how long they have been selling homes, and if they have a license that they can show you to prove it. You also have a right to ask whether or not they have a license that is in good standing and whether or not they have any information that they would like to share with you before you decide to have them represent you (or not). The more open and honest you can be with your real estate agent, the more open and honest they can be with you. Get a feel for who they are so that you know whether or not this is really a person that values what you value. You deserve a good fit no matter who you are or what you want from the transaction.

 

How Do You Plan To Sell My Home?

Every great real estate agent will be able to develop a good plan. A plan that will help you sell your home. A plan that will highlight the best features in your home to any and all potential buyers watching the listing of your home with hopeful eyes. Your real estate agent should be able to market your home in such a way that is valuable to the buying population. This means they should have a strategy that is specific to your home and its assets. Do not fall for a scam artist or a real estate agent that has no clue on how to they plan to sell your home. If they don’t have a plan, how on Earth is your home ever supposed to sell?

 

What Do I Need to Do Now?

You may have quite a bit of work left to do now that you want to sell your home. You may have to clean it up. You may have to have it inspected. You may have to sink in a little bit of money before your home is even able to go up on the market. Your real estate agent should have a pretty good idea of what has to be done in order to make this a smooth process.
