Valuable Tips for Home Buyers and Sellers in 2014

Buyers and sellers are looking forward to a good year in the housing market for 2014. If you’re considering buying or selling a home this year, the following tips can help you get the most from your decision.

Sellers

  • Start making plans to sell now and prepare your home for inspection
  • Find a qualified agent to handle your sale
  • Make the most of your market to get the best deal. Balance your gain by giving something back to the buyer such as early closing or personal property. 
  • Forego renovating if you want to sell soon
  • Price your home within market value 

Buyers

  • Get your credit rating up to par to benefit from better interest rates
  • Adjust your expectations for negotiating a price
  • Try again to invest in a home, even if you’ve had a foreclosure
  • Make a written list of questions to ask the seller about his property. Be leery of sellers who refuse to give you the information you desire.
