Spring is the traditional time people put their houses on the market. The idea is that selling a house will be easier when the flowers are blooming and the grass is bright, spring green. And sometimes that works!
But, what if it doesn’t? What if your house languishes on the market, with fewer and fewer showings, but no offers? Will you have to pay thousands of dollars to make repairs, or pay big bucks to put all your possessions in storage so you can then pay someone to “stage” it with fancy furnishings?
It might be time to re-think your strategy. Every day the house sits on the market, YOU are paying for its electricity, water, insurance, etc. And of course, the mortgage payments! Selling it sooner can save a bundle of those kinds of expenses.
Adding all those costs up will make one thing clear. Selling your house at below retail to someone like us might actually net you about the same amount of money, if you deduct all those expenses you’d need to get the house to sell for “top dollar,” PLUS it will save you time!
If you’d like some help figuring out whether it makes more sense to wait to sell for a higher price, or sell now and save the expenses of working for top dollar, we will be happy to talk to you. 512-807-8777.
