What should I do to get my home ready to sell?

– Hello and welcomeback to our video blog, I am Yasmin Saad, with the Saad Team here.

Probably the number onequestion I get from sellers, besides how much moneyam I gonna take home, is: what do I need to do toget my property ready to list and put on the market? So here's a few quick tips,things that you can do, that will help ensureyou're in the best showing shape from day one whenyou hit the market.

Number one: anything thatmay be kinda outstanding, sitting on that honey do list, go ahead and get thoseitems taken care of.

There's a few things we always see pop up on inspection lists,perhaps there's a little bit of dry rot or wood rot between the door and the side of your houseleading from the garage.

We see that quite a bit.

If you have any outletsthat aren't working, get those repaired and upgradeto the latest technology so you're protected with a ground circuit, those pop up a lot as well.

Go ahead and install new light bulbs and buy the really good ones.

I know, you're gonna be selling the house and you probably don't want to spend, what you think is frivolous money.

It makes a differencewhen the lights are on and the home shows bright and cheery.

This is Florida, people like their light.

Simple little thingsyou can also do include: touching up your baseboards,if there's any paint that needs to be touched up, do that, and then AC cleaning anda big overall cleaning of the property makes a huge difference and having the windows washed.

If you need any helpwith any of these things, give us a call immediatelyat 239-595-8500, and of course, we'rehappy to sit down with you and take a look atspecifically you might need right there in your home.

Look forward to talking to you next time, you can also see usonline at TheSaadTeam.

Thanks so much and talk to you soon.

Especially since that window is wide open.

James:Yeah Was it open the whole time? James:Huh? Was that window open the whole time? James:Which one.

That one? Yeah James: (I)think so and the AC was on? (that) doesn't make any sense.

This is actually the least bad.

James:Yeah I think this was James:Chris's room because James:it kind of has that dog smell.

which they weren't supposed to have pets.

There's (inaudible) proof so this is a dog bone? James:Looks like it.

Something.

You know it's not nearly as hot up here as I thought it would be.

James:Inaudible Yeah but the AC is not even on.

Sigh This is just insane.

I don't even.

I don't know it might not have been like this when the before the cops came in and tore it all up.

but still James:.

But I'm seeing a lot of the cigarette buts James:and like just food everywhere.

That doesn't have anything to do with the cops I guess.

James:yeah Plastic bottle caps, What other kind of sh** (do) we have here? Carlo: It looks like they had pots here.

Carlo:POTS.

Where you are standing.

Pot? Carlo:Pots.

Yeah.

There is evidence of soil and pots everywhere.

Carlo:I mean it's a f**king watering can here.

Yup Carlo:.

Should I Rent or Sell My House

hello my name is Fernando Herboso withMaxus Realty Group in today I'll be discussing a question I get veryoften which is should I rent my house instead of sellingit you know that this study has concluded 10 I personal bias prefer to rent outless residence rather than stalin when purchasing the next on in on you have to understanda lot times by is preferred to keep their houses because they want to keepand preserve the value of the property which the equity data received in if there's a way they can offset thepayments that they have to do the mortgage payments versus the payments are they gonna beused to inform a new tenant it does make sense to try to maintainthis property is a rental rather than stellar net but in some cases we have to understandthat you may have to sell your problem on a4a for you to have enough money to purchaseUNIX home so that's another problem day you may face but let's talkabout if you decide it the you want to rent a house in thistale of selling it and let me show you some questions that you may ask yourself the before renting your home enough question numberone it's always how would you respond if your tenants say so they cannotafford to pay their rent this morn because of morepressing obligations you know this happens during peakholiday seasons in a christmastime where people need money for expenses andyou may have the printer I'll which is your tenant a asking new of to wat to receive your payment sothis is something that you have to consider when you are renting a house to anindividual to you are not really familiar how'd they behave withtheir payments in how to behave with the bills thing what type responsibility in thisappliance that they have themselves so that's the chance youtaking Wenger rent a property the question number twowill be because of the economy many homeowners can no longer make theirmortgage payments what percent of tenants do you think canno longer afford to pay the rent so if you're in the area for examplearound washington DC were day tenancy laws really favor a lot more to live attendance then thelandlords you may 5 me you may face yourself a with a huge problem when you're tenand may not be able to make the payments but they had the right to remain in theproperty without pain for a certain period and meanwhile youhave to keep those payments to Europe bank yourmortgage payments had to be babe you wanna personal you credit so there's avery important thing to consider when you renting house another question number tree will be have you ever interview and experiencein the X in the turning case the you have to challenge a tenant this is a bit stressful situation forany person looking to rent a house when you had togo to the court system to make your tenant pay you money another question the you need toask you selfless have you talked to an insurancecompany about possible increase in premiums as liability in greater often on on offby home meaning day you may end up paying moreinsurance if you're renting a house especially in the in area that the insurance company mayfind to be a very risky for damsel you need tospeak to your insurance company to see howmuch more or how much less im a close your insurance if youthinking about renting your house another question is thatwould you allow pets cats dogs and how big is a dogging inthis is a very important question for you because a lot of families do havepets etc and that they moved with debts and youhave to understand that issuer coincidence saying Knoll 100percent not to any bets near you wanna cut down on the number of applicants foryour property possibly in above fifty percent of thepeople and this is not a good thing damnbecause dan is gonna take you longer to rent in his obey important danger you mayconsider directing with a bed maybe somethingthat you may be able to do by maybe charge in an extra the policyto all maybe putting some stipulations during thenegotiation of your lease contract number six how was actually collect thewrecked by mail in person the number on bysoldiers give to people is that I prefer for the tenant to do a directdeposit to the landlord this is a very importantprocess because in deal you're not really an means touching making sure youmaintaining a relationship with your tenant in that is becoming more and morepersonally more friendly that then they will have toliberty to maybe ask you to hold on and they'll have the money can policehelp be your whatever you prefer to have unknownrelationship with a tenant and did less contact with them the better for you and you prefer forthe money to go directly to you director add to your bank account frontairbag bank account and they will be no problem for thatinjury money would come every single for so the Mont number seven repairs are part of being a landlordpools dak 10 and calls for repairs rights inthis is very important for you to realize you taking in assuming a lot ofresponsibility for a whole family living in anotherhouse there you will have no idea what they're doing it having parties or not in what did whether they do into the house thateventually made break you may have achieved maybe puttingsomething in Flushing down the toilet toy use or something implying up to hype you may end up having to pay fordisappears for days in this may happen in the middle of the night end so lemme you

thedriveway soul abusing the products that you havein your house may be more prevalent wat tenants that they have kids but it's very hardfor you to prove that they were abused in it India theymay be construed the same is just in I'll a regular break andterrible problem of a product because yeah his longevity of how long you'vehad ed in a eventually you end up paying forthe whole thing in x1 is up

Preparing to Sell Your Home: Staying Clean While Moving! (Clean My Space)

Moving is something we all have to do atsome point and while it can be stressful, if you manage it effectively, it'll be asmooth transition from wherever you are to wherever you're going.

Many of you haveasked me to put together different moving videos.

From how to prepare for a move, how to pack, how to unpack, how to organize.

So many requests and I've wantedto answer them for so long because I have so much to say on the topic.

The issue is, I wasn't moving.

Sofortunately, our producer, Lucas, he just sold this condo and we decided as a team,that we're going to share his journey of moving with all of y'all.

This video we'regoing to talk about how to prepare your space for a move.

So, before you eventhink about selling, things that you need to do around the house.

We're going to tryand keep these moving videos fairly brief but there is so much to say on the topic.

So, we've put all the gory details up on our website, CleanMySpace.

Com.

So you can be sure to check that out.

Butright now, let's talk about 10 ways to prepare your space for a move.

Let's go.

Decluttering, the first thing you want to do when you're preparing your space tosell is to get rid of as much excess stuff as possible, so that you can make yourspace look as large as possible.

After all, that's what people are going to bemost interested in.

So go through your home and removeanything that is not absolutely necessary.

From decor items, books, DVDs and anythingelse lying around that isn't absolutely pertinent.

Cleaning your windows.

Naturallight is a huge selling feature of any space.

And let's face it, no one likeslooking out dirty windows.

So, if you want your perspective buyers to feel likethey're walking into a space with tons of natural light, you better make sure thosewindows are clean.

Where possible, you want to make sure thatyou can get your exterior windows clean and obviously your interior ones as well.

Remember those tracks and your window coverings.

And if you're looking forvideos on how to clean your windows, different recipes and techniques and whattools and products to use, I'll link all of that down below for you.

Because ofcourse, we have videos on it.

Depersonalize, the next step is going tobe challenging but it is so important when it comes to making a sale.

Your job hereis to neutralize your space.

You want to take out anything that's personal,superstitious, religious.

Any photographs or knick-knacks or cards oranything personal.

Because your job here is to turn your homeback into a house.

You have to help people themselves in your space.

Not you in yourspace and remember, all of the things that you're taking out, they're going to go toyour new home.

So, you can set it up and feel right back at home, onceyou get there.

Walls, baseboards, and vents.

This iswhere attention to detail can really pay off.

Fixing up little marks or scuffs onyour wall is a great way to make your space look clean.

Also, remember to cleanthe light switch plates and get rid of any of those marks on there.

Baseboards areareas that are often forgotten but really important to keep clean.

And finally, yourvents are also something that the pickiest buyers are going to look at.

And if youquickly vacuum them, you give them nothing to scoff at.

Clean the kitchen.

As I've said before,the kitchen is the heart of the home and it is used as a barometer for how cleanthe rest of your space is.

So, having it clean is super important.

You wantto make sure that all of your exterior surfaces are clean.

So, that includes yourcountertops, your sinks, your cupboard fronts, your door handles.

All theexterior appliance surfaces.

You even want to make sure that theexhaust filter about your oven is either cleaned or changed entirely.

Now, we haveso many different videos about how to clean your kitchen and I will link all ofthem below for you.

So, you can get lost in a little kitchen cleaning Youtuberabbit hole.

Remove excess furniture.

If you want agreat way to free up extra square footage without having to build an addition, allyou need to do is clear out any excess furniture.

So, go through each space,remove things that you though you needed but you really don't.

And just watch howyour room opens up.

Remember, you put all this stuff in storage, you can bring itinto your new space.

Or you might decide you don't need it anymore.

Deodorize your space.

You may or may notknow this, but your home has a unique scent.

And while you might not notice it,other people will.

And the last thing you want to do is turn someone off when theywalk in because your scent doesn't jive with theirs.

So, the first thing you cando is open all of your windows and just let Mother Nature do her work.

The next thing you can do is bring in somenice, neutral, gentle scents into your home by using something like a nebulizerwith essential oils, a lamp berget or even a reed diffuser.

We made this one and I'lllink the video down below for you along with some other nice DIY scent projects.

Clean your closets.

Remember, almost anypotential buyer is going to be interested in how much closet space they might begetting themselves into.

So, it's incumbent upon you, to make sure that yourcloset has as little clutter as possible and looks as organized as possible.

That'sgoing to make it look bigger and more appealing.

So take out anything that's out of seasonor anything that looks cluttered or sort of out of place.

Put that into storage orget rid of it altogether.

Either way, your job is to make the closet look huge.

Deepclean your bathroom.

If you want to make a prospective buyer feel right at home in aflash, have a spotless bathroom.

You want them to feel like they can take ashower or sit on your toilet with absolutely nothing to worry about.

So,this means you got to roll up your sleeves and give your bathroom a good scrubbing.

Get your tub and tiles nice and soap scum free.

As well as mold and mildew-free.

Youcan also consider changing out your shower curtain or your bathmat to make it lookextra clean.

Give your toilet a nice thorough scrub and make sure your mirrorsand sinks are shiny and looking new.

Clean your carpets.

Since floors are sucha large part of a space, making sure that they look perfectly clean is reallyimportant.

But if you have carpets, it's sort of a next level situation becausecarpets cling on to odors and stains.

So, if you have kids or pets, you don't wantto give any perspective buyers reasons to turn their nose up or raise an eyebrow.

That means, make sure that your carpetsare clean, stain-free and deodorized.

And if you can't get this done yourself feelfree to bring in a profession.

Remember, you don't want to give buyers any reasonto try and lower a price.

Whether you're moving up, downsizing or moving out forthe first time, I hope that this video has helped you get preparedfor that very move.

Remember, we're following Lucas on hisjourney from this condo to the new one.

So we'll be getting lots of excitingmoving content out for you over the next little while.

But in the meantime, makesure you let me know your moving questions down below and that way we can incorporatethem into upcoming videos.

And the first one has to do with cleaning your oven overheadexhaust filter.

Something I talked about in this video and something that wedefinitely forget to do.

And the next one is to make your own reed diffuser.

How To Sell Your House Fast – Why Is My House Not Selling?

Kris Krohn with REITV, and you've asked it! We've got the answer.

What do you do TODAY if your house your trying to sell is NOT selling?? "My house isn't selling! What should I do?!" Drop the price! Listen, I know that that may not be what you wanna hear, but it is one of your options.

There's a chance that youmight be thinking that your house is worth more than the market is telling you that itis.

There's a chance that you got advice.

Listen, it happens in the world of real estate.

We take our best guess and I'll go to my experts and I'll say "What should we list this at?".

And you know what? Often, they're right on the money.

Sometimes, they're low, and sometimes were too high.

And if that's the case, then you need to live within reality because it doesn't matter what YOU think it's worth.

I don't care how much money you put into the landscaping of the yard or how much you've put into repairs, a $50,000 yard does notmean that the house is worth $50,000 more.

In fact, very minimal repairs actually gointo increasing the value of a home.

So, the most important thing here is to first, make sure that you operate inside of reality and the market – the people that live in your area, they're gonna tell you what's real.

Your second option is actually doing a lease option.

Lease option is where it doesn't make sense for you to actually sell your housein the market and yet maybe you still want to move.

So what can you do? Well, you can collect the down payment with the seller financing option.

A family maybe gives you a 3, 5, $7000 of a down payment saying "We'd like to move in to this house and we'll cover the payment".

And depending on how your mortgage is structured, you could get BOTH a down payment in the thousands of dollars and you could collect a positivecash flow on that property.

And that also is another way to say 'Hey,if the market isn't going to allow me to sell my house for what I need, then this is anexcellent strategy for holding on to it longer until it WILL SELL and MAKE MONEY.

HOW DO I SELL MY HOUSE | #ClosingTalk Ep. 18

Hey everybody thank you for tuning into the18th episode of #ClosingTalk.

We are coming from the Delaware waterfront talking aboutif I were you, how would I sell my house? See a lot of you guys are perfectly capableand knowledgeable enough, and have the intuitive nature to be able to sell your own house,but there are little things you do not know.

Hopefully we will try to dis-spell them.

Sorryfor any of the wind.

There is certainly enough out there.

Nothing I can do about it besidesfight it.

The #1 thing you need to know when selling your own house is listen, I don'tcare what anybody says; 90% of any sale, whether you are selling it yourself or whether itis an agent, is all price.

So if you have the property priced wrong, you are not doingyourself any justice.

See if I was you, what I would do is I would hire an appraiser.

Iwould spend the $450.

I am sorry to break it to you.

If you are trying to sell yourown house, it is going to cost money.

What you are trying to fight with is just how muchmoney is it going to cost.

Beings that price is 90% of the concern here, you need to doyour due diligence.

I am not talking about an appraiser that is going to be an end allbe all, because your buyer is going to have their own appraiser.

At the end of the day,what the appraiser is going to do for you is let you know where to price the property.

See if you price it wrong, the property is going to sit.

If you price it right, I don'tcare what type of distribution you have or what those photos look like, your propertyis going to sell.

It just depends how many offers is it going to get.

See if you knowthe price of the property, you can hone in and know for yourself that you are gettinga fair deal.

See a lot of people think their property is worth a lot more than it actuallyis and they are trying to squeeze every dollar out of it.

That is why they are not gettingtheir property sold.

By having that appraisal done yourself to know a little bit more aboutthe market and give yourself an upper hand to know when you have a fair deal.

In today'smarkets, that is what sells, a fair deal.

No one is trying to take the shirt off ofyour back, but everyone wants to be treated fairly.

The reason why your house is not sellingis because you are not treating the buyer fairly and you need to do that.

How wouldyou like to be treated if you were on the other end of the stick.

Buyers have so muchaccess to information today that you need to price properly.

Anyone can see throughyour little cloud of smoke.

There is just too much access to information that you needto price the property right.

Now, how can you distribute it? You can spend a nominalamount and go to a variety of people who will place your property on the MLS, which is thesame service that us realtor's use.

You can enter it on Zillow.

Com and Trulia.

Com becausethey are all the same site.

You will not be able to enter it on Realtor.

Com because thatis only for REALTOR's, but that is a nominal price for the price overall that you are goingto be saving in commission.

Now lets talk about commission.

Just because you are sellingyour own house does not mean you are going to get lucky and end up not paying a buyerside commission.

You should go into this thinking you are going to be paying 3%.

Listen, ifyou get away with paying less, good for you.

At the end of the day, even paying a buyer'sagent 3% who is capable, willing, and able, is going to save you a lot of time effortand energy.

See, I do not care if your family member is in real estate or you have previousknowledge, at the end of the day, you do not know.

So, there is going to be things youneed help with in the transaction, whether you are represented or not with paperworkand whatnot.

So at least by paying one side of the transaction properly to the right personwho deserves it, will probably get you a little bit farther than just trying to be cheap,and that is what for the most part a For Sale By Owner is.

It is being cheap.

So if youcan master pricing your property and if you can master marketing your property, whichthe marketing is relatively nominal, to fill in the gaps, if you are in an urban area youcan do open houses, otherwise if I was you I would and trying to market your property,I would call the different brokers in the area.

They are going to be a wealth of informationto where as long as you are offering a buyer side commission, who knows, they might haveclients for you and being proactive is always better than being reactive.

So let me knowwhat you think! Have you recently tried selling your own house? Is it going well.

Let me knowbelow.

At the end of the day, I am here for you regardless of what you decide to do.

Whatevercity you are in.

If you are in Philly, New York, or out in California, I don't care,I am here for you.

I am the guy who can help you connect the dots between what you thinkyou know and really need to know in order to be successful in today's marketplace.

Atthe end of the day, this is all about you and your success.
