Knowing what to expect from closing costs makes buying and selling Highlands NC real estate a smoother process. Getting caught by surprise at the closing table can be a terrible experience and understanding exactly what your fees and costs can help eliminate unforeseen circumstances. Your Highlands REALTOR is a valuable resource in understanding what costs are expected and what are negotiable.

 

Some closing costs can be shared by both the seller and the buyer, often a negotiating tool when constructing a contract to purchase a Highlands property. Real estate commissions are one such cost, typically paid from both parties as part of the price of a home. Of course loan related costs are typically those of the buyers but if a seller has a loan there could be pay-off associated fees.

Meadows Mountain Realty, real estate in Highlands NC

Making it to the closing table is the expectation of buyers of Highlands NC real estate.  Sometimes there are unforeseen circumstances that get in the way of a home purchase succeeding but other times actions of a buyer can put an end to the deal at hand.  Knowing what to do and what not to do while under contract can help assure that you make it to the closing table.

 

Your Highlands REALTOR is an invaluable asset in helping you locate a home and negotiate its purchase.  Once you are under contract and passed your contingencies you are merely waiting for the day of closing.  If you are financing your home it is important to watch your spending during this time.  Things that can get in the way of closing include losing a job and over-extending your line of credit.  Keep an eye on your financial behavior because your lender certainly will.

The contract is an important part of buying Highlands NC real estate.  The contract to purchase a home is the negotiating tool necessary to make sure you get the best deal you can in a new home.  The best deal is far more than money, while it does involve the price it also includes important dates, contingencies, and more.  Your Highlands REALTOR is instrumental in drafting your initial offer and any concurring counters.

 

Your REALTOR is an essential resource in crafting your initial offer, knowing what fair market value is as well as what current market conditions are.  While there are standard contingencies, inspection and financing being two important ones, the most negotiable contractual elements include the closing date, the price, and the amount of earnest money.

Selling Highlands Real Estate Involves Paying Attention to the Details

Comments Off on Selling Highlands Real Estate Involves Paying Attention to the Details

Meadows Mountain Realty, selling homes in Highlands NC

Selling Highlands real estate involves paying attention to the details.  While you know to clean and organize did you consider putting away the dog dishes prior to a showing?  Any time you can scan your home with a fresh set of eyes the better off you are.  Your Highlands REALTOR can offer unbiased feedback and help you see what work still needs to be done prior to a showing or an open house.

 

A common issue in a home for sale may be that your organizing led to a lot of drawer stuffing.  Potential buyers will open drawers and you want them to be impressed with what they see, not appalled.  Another important piece of advice is to appeal to the masses.  Instead of a nude painting perhaps hang a scenic painting, not everyone has the same taste in art.
