10 ways to help prepare your home for Selling!-  let's face it...Sometimes we gather
many unnecessary items and place them in our homes because we might need them
one day.  When you go to sell your home, the best thing you can do is take a cold hard
look at the way your home shows it's self.  If it looks clogged up because of all those
items that you don't use but can't give up -buyer's will expect the worst and the prices
offered will reflect unknown hidden expectations.  The best way to get top dollar is to
"show" the home to it's best advantage.  Thus the Self-Storage market is of particular
interest in real estate transactions... by holding all the stuff we can't bear to part with!  

Area Discounters-   Our
company receives
discounts and incentives to
refer other companies for
services.  We in turn cannot
recommend or represent
the quality of the companies
services however, we will
pass along their incentives
to do business with them
and post any negative
experiences in the interest's
of our future client's.  

Adjustable Rate Mortgage
default on the rise-
 They say
about 1/4th of the mortgages on
the market are Adjustable and
are scheduled to reset in 2006
& 2007.  This is expected to
result in a 1 in 8 default rate
amongst those with Adjustable
Mortgage rates.  

As a word of advice from a Loss
Mitigation Specialist-Call and
keep in touch with your
lender-suggest a Loan
Modification and work with them
to find a solution.  Consider
selling the property if the price
you'll get is "more" than what
you paid for it but also consider
in this market that if you do have
to do a short or assisted sale
the lender will help and in most
cases forgive the balance, as
long as you cooperated.  
Borrower's are in a better
position to sell than to wait til the
foreclosure goes on the books
& the lender comes after them
for unsettled debt!

Seller Concessions?

Great houses always sell!  Sometimes they need a little push!  The days of
appreciation without improvements might not be as easy to do.  However, a
home with curb appeal, interior floor plan spaciousness, and a great
neighborhood with schools and shopping nearby will always be in demand.  
But what about if you don't have all that?  Offering a little concession may
do the trick!  

Ask a Realtor what they think about your homes value and how they are
going to market the listing!  Really pay attention to the Comparative Market
Analysis and the answers will be right there in front of you!  You can't make
'em buy it but you can offer incentive to purchase and close quickly with the
right combination of price and concessions to sweeten the deal.
