Must Do Home Repairs Before Putting Your House on the Market!

For SaleAs mentioned in the article “9 Vital Home Repairs to Complete Before Negotiating a Sale”, and I have to tell you The Storck Team has been running into some of this with our buyers as well, it’s a very good idea to run through some simple items that may come up on your home inspection.  It will save you, and your buyer alike some headache to know what may come up in your inspection ahead of time.  That way you can think it over before listing your home the items you may want to fix and the ones you may want to leave for prospective buyers.

 

  1. Windows – check your windows for fog and condensation, this is a sign of a broken seal in your window.  This is huge for prospective buyers, and you can be almost certain that a buyer will ask for it to be repaired after inspection.
  2. Bathtub Leaks – Especially present with jet tubs, check your bathtubs for leaks.  This might be an item that you can credit a buyer for instead of actually fixing, depending on the leak and the type of bathtub.
  3. Exterior Water Damage – check the siding and trim around your home for rotten wood.  Any home that is 8 or more years old will likely have water damage to the trim and siding.
  4. Roofing Items – This is by far the BIGGEST DEAL to your potential buyers.  Damaged or missing shingles on your roof are the fastest way to discourage your prospective buyers.  If your roof needs repair, from replacing a few shingles to a complete replacement of your roof, it’s likely that you can claim the work necessary with your home owner’s insurance and just pay your deductible.
  5. Loose Handrails – Check both inside and outside from your banister to your indoor stairs to your deck.  This is usually an easy fix.
  6. Gutters – check the flow in your gutters.  If they are clogged this will definitely come up, especially in a wet Winter climate like we experience here in Colorado.
  7. Leaky Water Outlets – Check your sinks and showers, nothing should be leaking by the time you put your home on the market for sale.
  8. Light Bulbs – Both inside and out, if a light is out this will be questioned on your inspection.  Something as simple as changing all your light bulbs will show your buyer and their inspector that your home is free of electrical problems.
  9. Heating and Cooling Systems – Replace all air filters in your home at a minimum.  It’s a good idea to have your air conditioner and furnace cleaned and serviced, you can provide this invoice to a prospective buyer as one less thing they need to worry about while at the same time ensuring that your units are in proper working order!

The more you know before you list, the less anxiety you will have around your buyer‘s home inspection.  The peace of mind that knowledge around all potential issues in your home can provide is truly worth the money upfront of things that your buyer will likely ask you to fix anyway.

Just Sold in Mission Viejo of Aurora!!

Front ViewThe Storck Team is so excited for our newest buyers and their new home in Mission Viejo of Southeast Aurora!!  Your new home is absolutely marvelous and The Storck Team wishes you DECADES of smiles and memories.  The neighborhood and home are truly a perfect fit for the family and we love sharing in the joys and helping our buyers begin this next chapter.

We know that being a buyer in this crazy Denver area market can be overwhelming and exhausting.  The biggest step to success as a buyer in Aurora today is to have a knowledgeable and experienced agent on your side.

  • Does your agent have a team with availability every time a new home is listed?  The sooner you get out to the home, the better chance you have to submit an offer.
  • Does your agent know what the seller is looking for when reviewing their offers?  Let’s face it, most sellers today will receive 5-10+ offers on their home for sale within just 2 days of being on the market.  Each seller‘s situation is different, does your agent know what each seller‘s primary needs are?
  • Is your agent a good fit?  Are they listening to your needs?  It seems like more often these days home buyers might be making purchases that they later regret.  We understand that home hunting can be stressful, but loving your home should be the number one priority.

Denver Home Buyer’s Woes Attributed to Denver Resident’s Financial Stability and Low Inventories

Cute Houses PicDenver area real estate experts are reporting the current home buyer‘s house hunting difficulties can be attributed to our record low inventories across the metro area and the fact that Denver residents as a whole are generally pretty financially stable at this point.  Many home buyers have been able to save and qualify for a loan options that are more attractive to a seller when reviewing the multiple offers Denver’s home sellers are receiving these days.

Many Denver area home sellers are receiving multiple full price offers on their homes the first day on the market, some within mere hours of hitting the market.  This leaves the decision making of which buyer‘s contract to accept much more difficult and pretty much determinate upon deadlines and other factors being best suited to the seller‘s personal needs.

Experts are also suggesting that the low inventories and sky rocketing prices that we are experiencing are no longer due to recovery from the mortgage crisis of previous years.  Most current home owners have likely refinanced their home loan into a very attractive loan and interest rate and simply have no desire to leave their ideal situation.
