Home seller tips and resources for the greater Racine area, Wisconsin
Those who are looking to sell their homes or other real estate in the Racine area of Wisconsin should look to an experienced agent for help putting their home on the market. Having a qualified selling agent can make it easier to create a reasonable list price as well as get answers to other common questions that sellers have.
What Are My Responsibilities as a Seller?
It is important to understand your rights and responsibilities during the selling process. Essentially, you must be upfront and honest about the condition of the property to the best of your knowledge. Usually, you will allow a potential buyer to inspect the property before the sale closes. It is also a good idea to check ahead of time to make sure that there are no issues with the title to the home. While it is rare that a title has a lien on it, it could hold up the formal sale of the property.
How Much Is My Home Worth?
When selling a home, there is no one correct answer when it comes to how much it is worth. It is a combination of market conditions, the condition of the home and recent home sales in the area. If a home that is a similar size with similar features to yours just sold for $100,000, it is reasonable to expect that your home will be worth somewhere close to $100,000.
What If I'm Upside Down on My Mortgage?
If you owe more on your mortgage than your home is worth, you may still be able to get out from that upside loan. Your agent can tell you more about short sales, which allows you to sell for a loss and walk away from the property without a lender foreclosure. Another option may be to sell for a loss and pay the remaining balance to your lender.
