One of the first things any home seller does is declutter and reorganize. Of course, you want buyers to know that your home has the storage space they need. But it can be a challenge to store those everyday items you still need at your Mansfield and Ashland homes for sale in a way that is both useful and appealing. Adding one or more of these storage solutions to your home might be just what you need.
Our REALTORS® at Haring Realty strive to make homebuying easier. When looking at Mansfield and Ashland homes for sale, clients often have lots of questions. It's no surprise concerns around financing are common. That's not just true for first-time homebuyers, either: Whether they're buying a first place or a place to retire, everyone wants the best deal.
But the process of getting a mortgage can be complex. It's easy to get confused, which is one reason why the right real estate pro is such a valuable ally. One question that often doesn't get asked – because buyers don't have all the information at first – is this: "How does pre-approval affect my home search?"
Pre-approval can have a positive impact on your finances and the whole buying process.
Here's what to know.
Are you getting your house ready to sell? Making it look its best doesn't have to mean expensive, time-consuming updates and renovations. Here are five easy projects our real estate agents recommend. All of them are things you can do yourself, and that will make a substantial difference in how well your house shows.
Pricing your home correctly is one of the biggest keys to attracting a robust pool of potential buyers, but the pricing process feels like one big mystery for many sellers. The good news is that it definitely doesn't have to be! While the pricing process can be complex, every good real estate agent follows a similar process to determine a home's value. Understanding what does – and what doesn't – factor into a home valuation will help you get a better grip on how much to expect when you sell. Our REALTORS® are here to help remove the mystery from the home valuation process.
It All Starts with a CMA
When determining the value of your home, your agent will start with a comparative market analysis (CMA) to compare your home with other, similar properties in your area. A CMA looks at the comparable homes that are currently on sale, those that have already sold recently, and homes that were listed but didn't sell. With a CMA in hand, you'll have a much deeper understanding of how your home fits within your local real estate market, whether you're competing with other Mansfield homes for sale or listing in any other community.
