Need To Upsize Your House

If your family lives in a cozy little bungalow, you probably need to upsize your house before you outgrow it. You’ll have to sell your home first, which isn’t a simple process. That’s why most home sellers rely on realtors. When a real estate agent sells your home, they establish a marketing strategy, then move the process forward.

Before you commit to working with a realtor, consider these tips. They’ll help you avoid unnecessary hurdles that can delay your marketing process.

1. Learn more about your ultimate marketing costs

When a real estate agent sells your home, they earn a commission. Before that happens, you’ll pay plenty for repairs, upgrades, and professional cleaning. However, you won’t know the actual cost to get your home market-ready until you get an estimate from a contractor. 

If possible, before you sign a contract with a realtor, ask if she wouldn’t mind explaining what you need to do to get your home on the market. Also, ask if she knows any reasonable contractors who can do the work fast.

2. Calculate the actual cost of owning a bigger home 

When you need to upsize your house, of course, you know you’ll pay more for the additional space. If you’re looking for a better school district, a modern design, a lower crime rate, or neighborhood amenities, you’ll pay a premium for every feature. You’ll also pay higher homeowners insurance premiums, maintenance costs, utilities, and property taxes. 

3. Get pre-approved for a mortgage

If you know how much you plan to pay for your home, ask your mortgage company to pre-approve you before you start looking. The process is as stringent as the final mortgage approval. First, your mortgage company looks at your financial data to determine what you can afford and how much they’re willing to finance. 

  • A pre-approval letter lets the home-seller know you are a serious buyer. 
  • It helps you understand how much you can afford to pay. 
  • It saves mortgage processing time once your sale goes through. 
  • 4. Make sure you choose the right person to sell your home

    Choose a realtor who makes you feel at ease when you need to upsize your house. Realtors all have different professional styles, but they sell your home using the same multi-step strategies. 

    • Walk through your home, and advise you about necessary repairs.
    • Have your home professionally staged and photographed
    • Create your listing 
    • Market online, in print media, and by mail
    • Host open houses and conduct private tours
    • Negotiate a sale and arrange the closing
    • 5. Be ready to move out as soon as possible

      You should be ready to move out ASAP when someone buys your home. Unfortunately, some homebuyers make a purchase that’s contingent on immediate occupancy. If you aren’t prepared to vacate your home right away, you could lose the sale.
