We are all familiar with the role of a real estate agent in selling your house. But it’s not just the realtor who plays a role in selling your house. There are other professionals who can impart their knowledge and help you sell your home quickly.
Below are 6 real estate professionals that can help you sell your house quickly.
A home inspector’s job is to assess the property’s condition and give you a detailed report of the condition of the home. This is a very important job because you do not want to sell a house with serious flaws and make yourself the target of a lawsuit. A home inspector can tell you the problems of your house and give you a detailed report on what needs to be fixed or replaced.
You also want your house to be inspected by a professional inspector before putting it on the market. If for instance, there are hidden flaws in the house’s foundation, you don’t want the buyer’s inspector to find it first which can help prevent unpleasant surprises during the negotiation period. Otherwise, negotiations can fall through or the buyer will ask for repairs and a lower price.
The appraiser determines if the asking price is higher or lower than the actual value of the property. Hiring an appraiser is a good idea to make sure that your asking price is within range for the size and type of property you are selling. One of the first reasons real estate deals fall through is because asking price is too high. Hiring a professional appraiser can give both buyers and sellers determine the market value of a property.
Essentially, an appraiser’s job is to give their unbiased opinion on whether a property is over or underpriced and to give the correct value of a property using different methods. The right value can attract more buyers and sell your house quickly.
You need money to buy a house and a mortgage lender can loan you some. It can be a bank or broker. Even with a current loan on your property you can still sell it. If you are selling with a current loan on your property you have to ensure the loan will be paid off from the sale proceeds. Alternatively, you may have to come with the difference between the loan amount and net proceeds from the sale price.
The title company makes sure that the title of your property is clean and free from any liens. It also protects the lender or owner against lawsuits and claims against the property. Finally, they also make sure that the new title or deed is filed with the appropriate institution. Basically, title companies ensure that you own the house and ensure proper transfer of the property to the new owner.
Realtors or real estate agents are essentially people who network your property to help sell your house faster. They have connections to the right people and may know of buyers who are actively looking for houses or properties to buy. A realtor could also provide information on properties that are good investments or provide tips on how to make your house more presentable so that it sells quickly.
Houses and properties are usually decorated to suit the owner’s taste. But when you’re selling a house, you should be able to attract buyers by making it easier for them to imagine living in the space. This is where stagers come in. They “stage” your house so that it looks appealing to the buyer. They can advice you what furniture to rent or buy so that your house looks like something that came out of a magazine.
Selling a house is not an easy task. There are many things to do and it also involves a lot of preparation. Knowing which people to call to make the process smoother will make the whole experience bearable and the transaction smoother.
