How do i know what my home is really worth? ~
When it comes to our homes, It is not uncommon for home owners to judge the worth of their homes based on emotions . On the contrary , facts are things that can be proven and measured. Here are some facts to consider:
Vacancy rate in your neighborhood: Are most homes occupied or vacant? If it’s difficult to get into a property in your area chances are people are willing to pay top dollars for your home. ~
What are other homes selling for? These are called comparables and when comparing your home take into account similarities like number of bedrooms and square footage; at the same time, consider differences like upgrades like newer kitchens, bathrooms, roof, etc. All these items can add up or decrease value to your home. ~
Current condition of the home: How old is the roof, the air conditioning unit, the plumbing, the bathrooms, etc. Having to replace a roof or a central ac unit can add several thousand of dollars to a buyer and they will take this into account.
Be realistic about your current home condition. ~
Many times, homeowners want to sell based on the possibilities of a home and not the current condition. For example to say, you can add a pool in the backyard and enjoy the outdoors. Yes! The buyer could add a pool, but right now the pool is not there so do not expect an offer based on possibilities but on facts. ~
Selling our homes is never easy. When we sold our first condo, although we were excited, it seemed like a chapter of our lives was closing and new one beginning. ~
To this day, when we drive near our old city of Aventura, we smile and say remember when…
