Top 4 Home Inspection Tips for Lansing Michigan REMAX Agents, Sellers and Buyers

Are you buying a Lansing Michigan house? Did your Dewitt MI REMAX Real Estate Agent advise you to get a licensed and professional home inspection? Your realtor will call and schedule the appointment for you. Here are 4 top family friendly tips for first time home buyers, new residents or home owners: First, do your research, check out recommendations or reviews on these home inspectors or companies. Do they have the best reviews? Find out if they provide a written report or digital, electronic report that can be viewed on your iphone or ipad. Second, did you know that you are allowed and encouraged to attend the inspection? You may want to be aware of mold, mildew or debris building up in corners of the house, or you may want to see how much insulation is in your attic. Although it is not required to attend the appointment, this gives you the opportunity to ask questions and the inspector has a chance to show you what they find. This is also a great idea especially if you're a visual person. Third, make sure the seller turns on the house utilities so the inspector can test appliances such as the stove or dishwasher, and the shower water, electricity flow, wall outlets, sockets, plugins. Fourth, do not waive the right to have an inspection if you are buying a popular custom built home from Allen Edwin, Fred Motz or Mayberry. Even if you are buying a new construction, you still want an inspector to verify there are no defects or builder shortcuts. There are many Mid Michigan vendors in your local area who are affordable: Capital Area Home Inspections LLC in Holt, Mid Michigan Home Pros in Lansing (Todd Hovey), and Home Inspection Services of Michigan Inc. National Building Inspections of Lansing can also provide an extensive list for you. The process of buying a house is chalelgining but rewarding, read the road map to buying a home: Road Map Illustration

Popular 3 Reasons to Sell Your Lansing Michigan or Dewitt MI House Fast Right Now

Here are top 3 reasons to sell your Lansing Michigan house right now and put the home on the market: First, potential buyers shop during the most popular time which is spring and summer. These are serious buyers who most likely have pre-approval letters from the credit union or bank and are ready and willing to buy a home. In some cases, the best buyers are parents who prefer to purchase right now before the upcoming school year begins in September. The hassle of moving with children is also difficult but can be more frustrating once school starts. If you find a house on Zillow, be weary. Should you trust Zillow? During this time of the season, transactions can be slower because of much paperwork needed from the time you sign the offer, once it is accepted and until the closing date. however, buyers who already completed much of the paperwork and received their preapproval letters are already ready to go and this will speed up the transaction process so you can get to closing faster. If you are already a home owner and trying to buy another house, you may want to consider purchasing this year instead of waiting since home prices increase every year as well as interest rates. Keep in mind that a home this year will be more expensive next year even if the difference is only by a few thousand dollars. Call REMAX Dewitt MI to schedule a meeting with our licensed real estate agents.

Lansing Michigan Home Owner Tips: 5 Unexpected Buyer Turnoffs When Selling Your House

Are you in the process of selling your house with your REMAX Dewitt MI Real Estate Agent? Are you hoping to sell your Lansing Michigan house fast but cannot find the right buyer? As a home owner in Okemos, Holt, Grand Ledge, Saint Johns, Ovid, Dimondale, Portland or Laingsburg, selling a house is challenging because you need to clean, declutter. stage, and organize the home before prospective buyers tour. But are you aware of unexpected buyer turnoffs? To guarantee more showings, you can avoid the following issues: First, if you have pets, get rid of the smell and then remove any pet water bowls or food lying around the kitchen. You need to understand that not everyone likes pets. So regardless if the buyer is a retiree or first time homeowner, if they see pet food, water or kitty litter, this can be a deal breaker. Secondly, do you have a hot tub? Some buyers, especially parents, may think this is dangerous for kids, or perhaps can be a hassle paying for the expenses. Third, remove any out dated hardware, cabinets or fixtures. In other words, do not renovate the kitchen, instead, replace knobs to brush nickel or brass. Change all lightning fixtures to modern. You are competing against Mayberry and Allen Edwin Custom Built Homes so your house needs to "appear" updated. But good news: this only requires quick and easy repairs that can easily be done on a small budget.  Fourth, paint bedrooms and hallways neutral colors. Many people are turned away by bright red dining rooms or flower wall paper from the 1970's. You can buy affordable paint and supplies at Menard's or Lowe's. Lastly, hide your dirty laundry. The last thing you want is strangers touring the house and noticing your pajamas or socks laying on the couch or bed.

Lansing Michigan Sell Your House Tips Before Buying, Top Advice from Previous Sellers.

Michigan Home Owners, what do you know about moving with kids, packing, buying a new home or selling your house? We asked Greater Lansing MI residents in local communities for their advice when asked the following question, "What are some tips you can provide folks who are currently selling their home but still need to live in it?" Below are responses from previous sellers in your town. Thank you to our Facebook community members of Grand Ledge, Dewitt, Saint Johns, Ovid Elsie and Portland Michigan in Ingham, Clinton and Eaton Counties.

"Declutter- Box up all the knick-knacks and the things you don't use everyday. Take down all the personal and family photos. Even though you may have done a beautiful job decorating your home you need to simplify it. The perspective buyer needs to envision their stuff fitting in your home. The fewer things you have in the home the larger your rooms will look."
"Don't buy another house until that one is sold!"
"Having someone else move everything and be willing to spend the money and hire a local moving company to push boxes rather than doing it yourself and adding additional stress."
"Make sure it is spotless and well organized"
"Smells are everything. Cook fish OUTSIDE on the grill. Otherwise, that smell just lingers for days, especially if you're using your air conditioning in the summer heat."
"Clean out closets and get rid of all the things that you have not used for a number of years."
"If you have pets, make sure all toys, food and water dishes are in a plastic tote and take any thing that pet related, including pets with you when you have showings. People may be turned off just knowing pets were in the house due to allergies and fear of animals marking or having potty accidents on the floor. Of course cleaning the house spotless goes without saying."

Top 3 House Liens Lansing MI When Buying a House for Michigan Home Owners

When buying a Lansing Michigan house, what types of things should you and your REMAX Dewitt MI real estate agent notice? There are 3 top important issues that might arise when buying a home. Your closing may be delayed if the title company needs to dig up old records to remove liens on the house. This takes time since they have to go back through public records from years ago. What are these three popular problems that occur? First, mechanic liens, which take place when a licensed contractor is hired by a home owner to do improvements and then he/she files a lien on the house to make sure his/her company gets paid. Once they do, then the lien is removed by the state. Some liens may eventually expire on a property but rules vary from state. Second, bankruptcies. For example, there may be an issue when a current homeowner buys a house when they're single and then gets married to someone who recently filed for bankruptcy. In this case, the title company needs to make sure both individuals sign the deed on the property which will allow bankruptcy to be removed. Third, divorce settlements. Have you heard of divorce liens? This occurs when a parent has paid in full for child support years ago and needs to inform the state so the lien can be lifted from the property. Also divorce cases can also cause a delay in case taxes were delinquent or not filed. Overall, before you buy the house, these problems need to be resolved and may delay the closing because they are very time consuming.

Lansing Michigan Best Home Owner Questions to Ask Buyers When Deciding to Buy a House

Did you find your house on Zillow? Are you hoping to buy a new construction house for sale or would you and your fiance prefer a starter home that's smaller with less features but more affordability? Shopping around for a home can be stressful but our RE/MAX Dewitt MI Real Estate Agents can answer questions you have about the home buying process. When deciding to buy a house, here's a few helpful questions to ask yourself: First, are mortgage rates increasing? If so, can I wait until next year to buy the bigger house with the 3 car garage? Depending on the size of the house or condo loan, mortgage rates from 4% to 6% on a $100,000 might only be $100-200 monthly difference but that could cut into your budget. Second, how long do you plan on living in the house? Do you have a financially stable job or will you need to relocate in a few years and sell your house? Third, what's your budget? If you're married with kids, can you afford a Mayberry or CVE home? Or, would you consider purchasing a cute 1970's ranch house in a small town? Location and home improvements are two valuables that determine the selling price of a house. Obtaining good credit is essential when buying a more expensive home. But with a fair credit score and no down payment, you might be able to still receive a mortgage, consult your local credit union or bank.

Best 5 Real Estate Tips to Sell Your Home Fast for Top Dollar in Lansing Michigan

Lansing MI Sellers and homeowners, think of it this way, the worst scenario is that your house sells for under value after you renovated or remodeling the house. But let's not make this mistake. Every seller wants the best price for their Michigan house. REMAX Dewitt MI Real Estate Agents work for you and will price your home at a fair value with your approval. First, sit down with your realtor and aggressively price your house according to the current housing market. Second, consider offering a bonus to Buyer's Agents in the area if they place an offer on the home within a certain amount of time that you agree upon. This is a great motivator and incentive for other agents to consider touring your Greater Lansing home with their first time home buyer! Third, you need to be willing to accept constructive criticism from your realtor, and the showing agents and even a potential buyer. For instance, after the showing or tour of your house, the buyer or agent will provide suggestions on way to improve the house or what they didn't like about the property. Consider their suggestions such as improving the interior or exterior including adding curb appeal outside or cleaning the carpets or ridding pet smell. Fourth, once an accepted offer is placed on the house, if the buyer is contemplating purchasing your home and another, then feel free to offer an incentive to the buyer like paying their closing costs. Lastly, stage your house to sell! This means declutter personalized items, remove photos of you and your children, clean carpets, organize shelves, drawers, closets and cupboards.

Popular Lansing Michigan Tips for Home Owners, Sellers, and First Time Home Buyer: Should You Trust Zillow?






Lansing Michigan Homeowners and buyers, are you looking to buy a house after you get married, or sell your home? You probably searched popular third party websites like Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com, Realtor.com that list residential and condo properties for sale. Zillow may be the largest website of homes for sale, but be cautious when evaluating the property. First Time Home Buyers may not be aware of inaccurate information placed on property listings. For instance, has Zillow updated property information to indicate whether the home is still available for showings and tours? Has there been an accepted offer placed on the house that you may not know about? Are the pictures accurate? Is the location placed accurately on the map? The top problem is price, is this the actual price of the home or has there been a price reduction or increase? Often a seller will agree to lower the price on their home to draw traffic and attention to buyers. However, in some cases, websites like Zillow will not automatically update this information, leaving buyers out of the loop. It's best to contact REMAX Dewitt MI Real Estate Agents to get the best updated information on a house before your purchase. For Home Owners and Sellers, the top issue for selling a home on Zillow is the fear of Zestimate which can distort the price and value of a home. You may not be able to trust Zestimates on Zillow because it often displays a lower price than actual comps. For instance, property values can be based on renovations and improvements, and in this case, how does Zillow know you renovated your house by adding 3 bathrooms instead of 1? The answer, it doesn't. Therefore it cannot justifiably value your home worth.
