neighbourhood that suits your needs and wants is one of the most important decisions
you’ll make in the home-buying process; your choice of environment will affect the way
you experience your new home.
In deciding upon a selling price, a home-seller must establish a balance between
the desire to draw the highest offer and finding a price that will be reasonable enough to
attract an appropriate pool of prospects, and competitive offers.
Not only are there mortgage installments and the down payment to consider, there are a host of other—sometimes unexpected— expenses to add to the equation. The last thing you want is to be caught financially unprepared, blindsided by taxes and other hidden costs on closing day.
Your house should always be at-the-ready for a tour, as
agents may bring clients by with very little notice. If they catch you unprepared and you
aren’t able to show the house on the spot, you could be losing out on a sale.
