Front Door of a Home

Front Door of a Home

At least 88 percent of homebuyers begin the process online, looking at pictures on the listing site. Good photos and real curb appeal help entice buyers to check out your house in person. You want to make a great first impression, so don’t feel scared to make a statement — you want buyers to fall in love with your house. The fixes below are minor and budget friendly enhancements that can be done in a day to help make your house more inviting and appealing, and help get potential buyers to schedule a showing!
GLAM THE FRONT DOOR
The entry is a huge focal point for potential buyers, especially when it’s one of the first things they see. Create appeal by cleaning the front door — wipe it down, remove dirt, update the color with some paint. The front door should play off a home’s interior: add a kick plate, swag or a seasonal wreath to reflect the interior style of the house.
CREATE SYMMETRY
It is known that humans find symmetry beautiful – symmetry is attractive to the human eye, especially in nature. Symmetry is also appreciated in the design world for its familiarity, balance and it works with every style. Using symmetry to entice potential buyers is a quick and cost-friendly tool to the home seller: compose light fixtures, plants and front-door accents based on symmetry to create welcoming and inviting entryways and boost the house’s curb appeal.
MAKEOVER THE MAILBOX
If you have a mailbox, it can be a great way to accent your house and add a little touch of personality. If you’re going to replace the box, pick one that mimics the style and trim of the house. You also have the option of dressing up a mail box by painting the post to match the house’s exterior color, or you can surround it with flowers or other plants.
ADD OUTDOOR LIGHTING
A quick, easy, and budget friendly way of adding appeal to the outside of your house is to add outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting adds a little something extra, and it can also provide safety and security. Homeowners have many options for lighting, from wired to solar, and lights can be purchased at many retailers and hardware stores. Install landscape lighting along paths and trees.
PATCH UP THE GRASS
Pets, animals, weather and other events at your house can take a toll on your yard’s grass, and most buyers will notice a lawn that looks like it’s on its last leg. Cut out any dead spots and replace with sod, or, if you have time, replant with seed. If you live in a non-drought area, turn on the sprinklers: a lawn needs at least 1″ to 1 ½” of water per week and should be watered deeply 2-3 times per week.
INSTALL WINDOW BOXES
Window boxes can be a really budget friendly way to liven up the outside of a house. They help play up windows, and they can add a pop of color by way of plants or flowers. For a traditional look, choose boxes made of copper or iron, and pick painted wood for more of a cottage feel. Use a window box to play with flowers that will suit the lighting in the yard and the color scheme of the outside.
RENEW PLANTERS AND BEDS
Poorly maintained planters and flower beds can be a big letdown to potential buyers – especially when many view poor upkeep as an indication of what a house may look like inside. Be sure to prune overgrowth, pull weeds, plant extra flowers and add new mulch to restore life and color depleted by the sun and harsh weather. Adding a border around flower beds or along paths can be a great addition, and budget friendly. If your yard already has a border, clean and restore pieces that are worn or upgrade the stone altogether.
Another budget friendly fix you can do in less than a day is pressure washing any dirty siding, decks, patios, driveway or sidewalks. A pressure washer can be rented at any home improvement store for a small amount, and freshly washed pavement and siding can help make a home look revitalized. If you’re limited on outdoor space or have no yard, add some color by creating a container garden. These small gardens are easy to maintain and can easily be transported to your new residence once the sale is finalized. As a seller your top priority is getting the most out of your house — concentrating on small and easy fixes that are budget friendly can really help give your house that pop so many buyers look for.

Hooray! Your home has officially sold and you’re about to receive a fat check for the exact price you put it on the market for…right? Unfortunately, sellers don’t typically pocket the price a buyer agrees to pay for their home. The closing costs that are factored in at the end of the transaction can really add up.

Check out the tips below to assist sellers in determining how much money will be left over once the transaction is complete.

Paying Your Agent

Typically, a real estate agents’ commission is 6% of the home’s selling price. Of that percentage, 3% will be given to the buyer’s agent and 3% will go to the seller’s agent—it’s a fair, 50-50 split. For example, if a house sold for $400,000, 6% of that would be $24,000 in commission with $12,000 going to each agent and then be split again with each agents’ broker.

 Seller Closing Costs

In addition to paying the agent, closing is also the time for sellers to pay off the loan on their home. Your loan payoff may be a little higher than the balance on your loan due to prorated interest and you might owe a prepayment penalty for paying it off before the end of the term.  If you have a home equity loan or line of credit, it will have to be paid in full at settlement as well.

Don’t forget about the attorney fees that can range from $1,000 to $1,500. These fees and the type of transaction should be discussed prior to hiring the attorney.

The state of New Jersey has a Realty Transfer Fee (RTF). This fee is based on the sale price of the home and is typically collected at closing by the title company to then be allocated throughout the counties in the state. The elderly, physically disabled and low to moderate-income households receive a discount on this fee.

It’s important for a seller to be prepared prior to settlement to pay or remediate for home inspection repairs ordered by the buyers.  It is also a good idea to have a pre home inspection so you know in advance any problems that may arise and can address them before your home hits the market.

If both parties cannot come to a mutual agreement on any major issues, then both parties may opt to cancel the sales contract if a mutually agreeable remedy to fix cannot be reached. A seller should also be prepared prior to settlement to pay for home inspection repairs ordered by the Buyers.

 Advice From The Professionals

RE/MAX Properties Unlimited Agent, Missy Iemmello recommends, “When listing your home for sale, consider purchasing a home warranty to offer prospective buyers. The low cost of the warranty, which is typically only paid at closing, can save you thousands of dollars during the home inspection repair negotiations. Also, if the seller is obtaining a certificate of occupancy they should submit an application with ample time to spare because some towns may limit the days they inspect a home and can be backed up, thus delaying closing which can sometimes be costly”. Randolph requires a Smoke Dectector & Carbon Monoxide Certificate of Occupancy which costs the seller $100 and is good for six months.

The Shongum Lake is a private lake community which offers a resort like community right in your own backyard. Families who live near the lake and whom are members of the lake walk to the lake in the summer for family outings, ice-skate on the lake during the winter, and jog around the picturesque neighborhood in the fall and spring. Friday nights in the summer are Happy Hour where families and friends gather to enjoy the lake, weather, and each other’s company. Parties at the Lake House are always a big hit and parties for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day are huge community events that are truly fun for the whole family
