Many homeowners feel overwhelmed by all the details of selling their house and don’t know where to start. The best way to begin is by making a list of questions to ask. The right questions will help you feel more comfortable with the process overall. In addition, the answers to these questions will help you earn the most money possible for your home, which starts with deciding how to sell.
Because real estate is not a one size fits all industry, the method used to sell your home should be best suited to your particular property as well as all extenuating personal circumstances. Understanding the results of each option clearly, allows you to make an educated decision. Real estate agents and professional investors have combined forces to make the process easy, with the ability to help with any option you select, working with you as a hybrid agent investor.

What Must I Disclose?
When you’re selling a house in Macomb County, you must disclose any known defects or work completed without permits. You must also disclose any other cause which would prevent new owners from the full enjoyment of the property. It’s important, to be honest and disclose any potential problems with the property so that buyers can make an informed decision.

Do I Need An Inspection?
If you’re selling a house in Macomb County, you must make all the legally required disclosures about it. This is because an agent cannot act as your legal representative when representing you with buyers, even if they are acting as your private agent.
An example of something that has to be disclosed if known is any known defect or work completed without permits and any other cause which would prevent new owners from the full enjoyment of the property. For example, have there ever been leaks under the sink? Did electrical wiring need replacing last year? You don’t have to disclose anything which doesn’t affect the use of the property. A common misconception among sellers is that you have to tell agents everything about what happened inside the property.
Does Staging Matter?
There is no doubt that staging a home can have a big impact on potential buyers. By removing personal items and making the house look generic, it allows buyers to visualize themselves living in the space. However, some people argue that staging is not necessary and that it’s just an added expense.
So, does staging matter? The answer is yes – but it depends on your specific situation. If you’re selling a home that is cluttered or full of personal items, then staging will be very important in order to help potential buyers visualize themselves living in the space. However, if your home is already neat and tidy, then you may not need to stage it at all.
There is also the question of what must be left behind when selling a house in Macomb County. Permanent attachments such as built-in cabinets or other items attached to walls or floors by which damage would result from removal, such as television mounts, should remain. Naturally, you’ll remove all personal property after the sale. In many cases, you may also take all or most of the appliances with you as well. Acting as an agent, an expert hybrid agent investor like those at FastFairOffer.com, LLC can help you create a list, including what possessions you may be willing to offer as an incentive to sweeten a deal with a prospective buyer. On the other hand, when working with your agent as a professional investor, you have the freedom to leave anything behind that you don’t want. Simply move into your new home, leave the clean-up behind.
How Much Will Selling Cost?
Many homeowners are concerned about the out-of-pocket expenses of selling a house in Macomb County. Last but not least, another question they ask is the cost to list the home on the MLS with your hybrid agent investor acting as a real estate agent. One of the unique benefits is that each sales method will be detailed by the numbers, allowing you to estimate the costs to hold onto the property, market, and pay commissions compared to selling directly. If a direct sale is the better option for your case, then working with your hybrid agent investor like those at FastFairOffer.com, LLC as a professional investor eliminates them all, and because closing is fast, holding costs aren’t a concern.
