Staging a house to sell is one of the best ways to increase the sale price of your home, so it may be worth hiring professional home stagers to impress potential buyers. Home staging companies cost money so it would be an investment toward receiving that extra $5,000-$10,000 on a purchase offer from a potential buyer who really wants your home.

Getting the keys to your new home is a monumental moment after a long waiting period. To be confident about your builder, a final home inspection can be done before your final payment. The inspection report can give you up-to-date information relating to the nature and location of any defects (if there are any). However, to get the most value out of your home inspection, you need to ask the right questions.

In the real estate world, the list price of a home is somehow both extremely important and ultimately meaningless.

But in the end, the list price is just a jumping off point as you enter negotiating house price with the buyer. The actual sale price will be determined during the negotiation process. While this can be a bit intimidating to some home sellers, it’s a crucial part of selling your home. Here are some tips for how to get the upper hand in negotiations and come away with the best price for your house.
