A few weeks ago, we answered four of a home seller’s most frequently asked questions. That was a solid start, but in our experience, homeowners who are looking to sell in the Bronx have far more than four questions!
Today we are going to tackle four more questions taken directly from our clients:
Question #1: What should I do to prepare my home for sale?
We always suggest simple staging, such as clearing clutter, deep cleaning, and making improvements that will create a positive first impression. You’ll also need to take care of faucet drips, broken locks, and other minor malfunctions.
Question #2: Do I need to tell potential buyers everything that’s wrong with my home?
It is easier for everyone, not to mention morally correct if you disclose as much as possible to the buyer. If you are looking to sell in the Bronx, consider this: If you need to disclose a problem to a buyer, can you fix the problem before listing your home? If so, you might want to address the issue pronto to increase your home’s appeal.
Question #3: What is your marketing strategy?
When you partner with a real estate agent, you automatically assume that they are advertising your property across as many channels as possible. This isn’t always the case. If you are looking to sell in the Bronx, find an agent who uses web resources, printed publications, and personal connections to get your home noticed.
Question #4: What if I don’t like an offer made by a potential buyer?
You don’t have to accept an offer that you don’t like, but it’s important to respond. Whether you decline or counter the offer, give the potential buyer something to work with so that they can decide to continue to pursue your home or move on. It wastes everyone’s time if you leave them hanging.
