Tips to sell your house in the fall

Create an “Autumn Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is what drives a buyer’s attention when they drive by your house or see a picture of your house. Getting a good curb appeal is critical in order for your house to stand out amongst others.

Clean Up
Make sure your yard, driveways and gutters are free of any debris or leaves. Mow your lawn, clean your windows and make them sparkle. Take out any weed, trim the trees, plant colorful plants… Give your house a fresh coat of paint, as well as your front door if needed. You never know when a potential buyer is going to visit your house, so you should keep up with the cleaning work every day. Once the leaves change colors, they start to fall like crazy.
You can also arrange a nice pumpkin path, anything that will drive a buyer’s attention is good! Try to lean towards fall decor opposed to straight Halloween as it tends to be more inviting.

Your interior should shine as much as your exterior. Anything that needs to be fixed should be fixed. That includes replacing carpets, fixing wood floors or fixtures… Giving another coat of paint, deodorizing.... You can give a fall vibe by adding orange pillows on your sofa or lighting up a pumpkin spice candle.

Warm up your House
Days get shorter during the fall, so make sure to open curtains and blinds and do not hesitate to turn the lights on to help illuminate and warm up your house. If you have a fireplace, you should clean it and turn it on before a potential buyer visits the house.
Do your best to make buyers feel “At home” with a nice, fresh and cozy environment.

Check the HVAC
When was the last time you used your furnace filter? If you haven’t in a while, it is a good idea to change the filters and check HVAC system before turning the heat back on. As it gets colder, buyers will want to make sure the heating system works properly. If a home inspection is made, the inspector will look at your HVAC so it is better to find and fix any problems before putting the house on the market.

Contact us today to make all those efforts to create an Autumn Curb Appeal worth it and sell your house!

How to Save for a Down Payment

Before buying a house you will need enough down payment/closing costs to qualify for a mortgage. The Optimum down payment is 20% of the sales price, which allows you to forgo Mortgage Insurance.
It can however be hard for first time buyers to save that much. Here are a few easy ways to save for a down payment:

Determine your time frame
When do you plan on purchasing a home? In 2,3 or 4 years? The shorter your time frame, the higher your annual savings will need to be.

Automate a savings plan
The more convenient you will make it to save, the most likely you will be to actually save. You can either chose a fixed amount, 300$ for example, or a percentage of your paycheck so you will save more if you get a bonus or a raise!

Tap into other savings account
First time buyers can withdraw up to $10.000 from their IRA (Individual Retirement Account) to put toward the down payment. If you are married, that means you can each withdraw $10.000. You can also take a loan out from your 401K in which you pay your self back with interest, this is a Win Win in many cases.

There are many programs that allow first time home buyers to get into a home with minimum Down Payment and Closing Costs. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like more information.

5 First Time Home Buyer Common Mistakes

Buying your first house can be challenging, here are a few mistakes to avoid in order to make your experience a good one:

1. Not Knowing What You Can Afford 

Checking your credits is one of the first steps before looking for a house. It is extremely important to know where you are at financially as it will be the first thing lenders will look at before putting the mortgage together.

2.  Not Using the Help of a Professional

A Real Estate Agent will act for the homebuyer and home seller best interests. Getting the help of someone who has experience and knowledge about the real estate market is crucial to avoid making buying your first house a bad experience.
Your Real Estate Agent will be someone you trust to help you with the biggest investment of your life.

3. Not Considering Other Expenses
When first buying a house, there are many additional expenses you will need to consider such as property insurance, taxes, etc.. A Real Estate Agent can help you figure out what a realistic budget should be.

4. Skipping the Home Inspection
Sellers usually try to avoid the home inspection and it can seems like an easy way to save money to the home buyer. However, it is very risky not to do one. In fact, doing a home inspection will save you some time and money. Once the closing is done, you will be the one financially responsible for any repairs or any issues arising. Any issues linked with the good functioning of the house such as the electricity, the plumbing should be verified BEFORE the closing.

5. Not Researching the Neighborhood
You visited the perfect house. You picture yourself decorating the kitchen, choosing new appliances, but have you took a look at the neighborhood? Is it safe to walk back home at night? Is there a school in the area for your future kids? These are all questions to ask about the neighborhood your future house is in. It is essential you pick a house in an area you will love and can see yourself and your family grow in.
