How long should selling your home take?

by Victoria Luhring

As a real estate professional in the Toledo area, I have sold many homes in this tough market. Often, sellers get distressed over the amount of time it takes to sell their home. The important thing is not to get upset or distressed over your home not selling, but to try to understand why it is not selling. There are many reasons for a home not selling right away. Here are some common reasons:

  1. The right price. This is probably the most important reason why a home won’t sell. Many buyers who go out to see homes have an idea in their mind of how much money they want to spend and how much/ what kind of house they expect to get with that money. If a house is overpriced, a buyer will often see that right away and immediately dismiss the home. It is important to consider the houses in the same price range as your house because they may or not be in a better condition than your house.
  2. Curb appeal is very important. Most of the time, the picture on the MLS is the front photo of a house. Buyers choosing houses to see from the MLS will sometimes immediately dismiss houses with poor curb appeal. It is important to have a good front photo taken that displays your home’s charm and appeal accurately.
  3. Market demand. An over abundance of Homes for sale in your price range means it is a “Buyer’s market.” This means the buyer has many choices to choose from; therefore the chances of your home selling are less. This is completely beyond your control, yet it is still an important reason for a home not selling.
  4. Economic reasons. Fluctuating interest rates can affect how long it takes your home to sell. Also local company layoffs can affect the market because there would be less people looking for houses. A poor economy can often affect whether or not a home will sell.

How to Repair Your Credit

by Victoria Luhring

Here are some steps for repairing your credit and buying the home of your dreams.

 

  1. Make a budget. Calculate your income and your expenses make a budget for your household.
  2. Look at your credit report and be aware of your score.
  3. Talk to your creditors. Do this as soon as you realize you are getting behind in your payments. You can work with them to reduce your payments before you get too far behind.
  4. Always get any agreement in writing. Make sure you get a letter when you negotiate lower interest rates and payments.
  5. Stop using credit cards. Only buy what you know you have money in the bank for.
  6. Gradually cut off credit accounts. All of a sudden cutting off all credit accounts makes others think you are financially unstable.
  7. Try a secured credit card. This means you supply money up front as collateral. For instance, if you deposit $400 in the bank, you will have a $400 limit on your secured credit card. This is a safe way to build your credit.
  8. Join a credit union rather than a bank. They are more likely to give you a loan than a bank is.
  9. Always make payments on time. Payment history is the number one thing that determines your credit score.
  10. If at all possible, always avoid bankruptcy. Bankruptcy shows up on your credit for 10 years.
