Selling your Corpus Christi house can be stressful? Make sure you read this blog post that reveals 4 misconceptions you should be aware of when selling your house in Corpus Christi …
When you’re looking to sell your Corpus Christi house, and dealing with a real estate agent who is listing your house then here are 4 misconceptions you should be aware of in Corpus Christi …
First, Don’t Assume That You Can Sell Right Away
The market varies and can even shift from one day to the next, depending on a number of factors. So make sure you set realistic timelines about how long it will take to sell.
Assume it will take months for the sales process to be completed – from fixing up the house to showing buyers to negotiating to setting a closing date to moving out. Your agent, should be careful not to over-promise a timeline and set your expectations to high.
Second, Don’t Assume That The Asking Price Will Be The Selling Price
The asking price is the starting point in the sales process – it establishes a starting point.
Realize that the actual selling price might be different than the asking price. Your agent should have a full discussion with you about this in setting the price, to possibly reducing the price when your house sits on the market without selling.
Third, Don’t Assume All The Money Goes Right Into Your Pocket ( We Wish!)
Some people make the mistake of assuming that the selling price (minus anything they owe on their mortgage) is pure profit. Not true.
As the seller, make sure you know that there will be agent commissions, closing costs, and other fees you’ll have to pay. Again, your real estate agent should explain all anticipated fess and commissions – upfront.
Fourth, Don’t Assume That The First Offer Will Go Through
Buyers often make offers and then discover that they can’t get financing for some reason. Even when they come to you “pre-qualified letter in hand”
Be prepared to have one or two buyers fall through before a buyer can be found. If you can consider ‘Terms” or owner financing you will have 10x the buyers pool that will buy your house.
When you’re ready to sell your home, you have options. As the property owner you have decisions to make. With understanding these 4 misconceptions the process will be less stressful. Having realistic expectations will help.
