3 Questions to Ask Before Selling Your Houston Texas Home

July 16th, 2019

Are you planning on selling your Houston Texas Home? If so, you are in good company because many people are thinking about selling their homes in 2019 to upgrade to their next properties.

Although selling your home is a smart choice to make, the reality is that there are 5 questions to ask before you list your home for sale.

#1 – Can You Afford to Sell Your Home?

The first question to ask before listing your home for sale is can you afford to sell it? This question is important to ask because a typical home sale comes with costs including obvious ones like commissions which will be paid to the buyer’s agent and listing agent (typically between 5% to 6% of a home’s price).

There are other costs which a homeowner may be expected to pay including new landscaping, staging, and closing costs. In total, these costs can total $5,000 or more so it’s important to be financially prepared to sell your home before you lit it.

#2 – Do You Know What You Must Disclose About Your Home?

Knowing what you should disclose about your Houston Texas Home is also another important part of a home sale.

Sadly, many homeowners make the mistake of disclosing too much information so before deciding on what you should disclose about your house you should hire an experienced Houston Texas Realtor® because this will save you the time and hassle of disclosing too much information which could jeopardize your home sale.

#3 – What Area of Your Home Get the Most Attention?

Last of all, but most important, another crucial question to ask before selling your home is what area of your home gets the most attention?

This question is important because if your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom gets the most attention, you will want to focus on de-cluttering and staging those areas first.

Even though most buyers will be looking at kitchens and bathrooms, you shouldn’t also forget about paying close attention to your garage, foyer, closets or great room because these other areas of your home could be areas that are important to some buyers and you want your home to stand out compared to others in the area.
