You’re getting ready to finally sell your Houston Texas Home and are excited to move onto another home but have you taken the time to investigate the top “red flags” home buyers are always on the lookout for?
In this post I will share with you some of the most common red flags buyers are watching out for so you don’t make the mistake of listing your home with one or more of these problems.
Sadly, the signs of water penetration comes in all shapes and sizes. It could be a small stain on the ceiling in your living room or the carpet in one of your bedrooms is wet. Regardless of where the water penetration is in your Houston Texas Home you must get this problem fixed IMMEDIATELY
Buyers will always deduct thousands from the asking price of a home if they feel that major work is needed or they will walk away from your home altogether if problems like water penetration are not resolved BEFORE you list your home.
People Are Leaving Your Neighborhood, Big Time…
Although it’s not uncommon to see a few for sale signs in a neighborhood it will cause buyers to be concerned if they see lots of for sale signs because this will show the buyer that there’s a major problem which is causing homeowners to flee the neighborhood.
Some common issues which cause buyers to leave in groups include: lack of jobs, high crime or environmental issues.
Last of all, but most important, one of the biggest red flags which could come up with the sale of your Houston Texas Home is if your home has electrical issues.
Many older homes which were built mid-century, or earlier, may have electrical issues and it’s important for you to have your home inspected by a qualified home inspector just so you can make sure that no electrical problems exist since this could affect the sale of your Houston Texas Home or even make it difficult for the next buyer to qualify for a home loan.
