If you're facing foreclosure, can you sell the old homestead in a hurry? One of today's sites has some advice. In addition, sites here provide tips on dressing up a house for sale and picking a broker.
The blog, BestHomeSellingTips.com, doesn't appear to be getting frequent updates, but what's there could prove valuable, particularly the full list of links down the left-hand side of the page. There, you'll find entries about home-selling tips that are available on video, and tutorials on "home staging" — which are ways to dress up interiors and exteriors to best show them off to prospective buyers. A link for real estate forms shows what a bill of sale, listing agreement and other industry documents are all about.
Don't overlook the power that a mulched flower bed, painted door, and neatly folded bathroom towels could have on your ability to sell your house. Those points and what seem like an endless variety of others are covered to the max at the Home Staging Channel. Yes, there's a channel for everything.
For home sellers, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has this page with links to tips on interviewing brokers, getting your house ready to sell, and preparing yourself for the paperwork and hidden costs. As for quizzing brokers, the site notes that sellers — before signing on with a real estate agent — have to nail down the size of the broker's commission, services that the person will provide, and the length of a contract to market the house. All those things are negotiable.
Here's a guide to selling fast when you're suddenly headed toward foreclosure. HGTV's Frontdoor site recommends that, in dire circumstances, you not try to salvage equity that simply doesn't exist, that you "get real" about what the house is worth, and that you be prepared to "offer creative concessions and/or financing perks." The site also warns buyers that a home in foreclosure is not necessarily a signal that you'll get a bargain. As well as providing such advice, Frontdoor is a Web site that allows you to search real estate for sale.
