Getting the Highest Price for Your Home

Curb appeal is key and could make a difference whether people stop and take a flyer, or drive right by. Here are a few tips to increase the curb appeal of your home. Staging your home is important. Many buyers will stay in your home longer if it's staged appropriately. I have compiled some ideas to present your home in the most effective manner.

Closing Costs to Expect:

  • Title insurance fees depend on the sales price of the home.
  • Broker's commission is a full-service fee and costs 6 percent total. That's 3 percent to the listing office and 3 percent to the selling office. Did you know that homes that offer less to the selling office (the buyer's agent) get shown to prospective buyers less often than homes that offer 3 percent? Furthermore, if a REALTOR® is willing to take less commission, do you really think that they will demand more for your home when negotiations get tough? Let us show you why paying 6 percent will actually net you More!
  • Federal capital gain's tax can be avoided if you have lived in your home for 2 of the past five years. This tax can be deferred to your next property by participating in an 1031 tax exchange. Please ask us about this and we'll be happy to walk you through your options, and put you contact with our real estate attorney to help you to make an informed, educated decision.
  • FHA fees and costs are all fees negotiable between an FHA buyer and seller. These costs can easily add up in excess of $10,000. That's why you need Mark and Melissa Frentzel negotiating for you! 
  • Home inspections fees are typically paid by the buyer.
  • Appraisal is used by the lender to ensure that the home's value supports the mortgage against it. The appraisal is typically paid by the seller.
  • Miscellaneous fees can accrue from correcting problems noticed during the home inspection, clouds on the title, etc. But we will work to minimize any surprises to net you more for your home!
