As a home seller, you're almost ready to list your home on the real estate market. For instance, you've committed a lot of time and money to complete extensive home repairs, conducted massive amounts of cleaning and even started working with a professional real estate agent. But even after all of your efforts, you still need to complete several last minute tasks to ensure your house is ready for prospective homebuyers to check it out. So what does it take to guarantee your house is ready for a home showing? Here are three last minute tips for home sellers to get a residence prepared for an upcoming showing: 1. Focus on the Flow of Traffic. Is it easy for homebuyers to get around your house? If large, bulky furniture and clutter fill your residence's walking paths, it may be difficult for homebuyers to walk around comfortably. Therefore, you'll want to spend some time investigating the traffic flow in each room of your home and ensure that homebuyers can explore your entire residence quickly and effortlessly. In the hours leading up to a home showing, you can improve the flow of traffic in any room simply by rearranging furniture as needed. Remember, you'll want to give homebuyers plenty of space, and moving furniture to ensure homebuyers can move around with ease is critical. You also can rely on your real estate professional for support in this area, as he or she will be able to provide you with last minute guidance to empower you to maximize the flow of traffic in every room. 2. Hide Your Personal Items. You know the photographs, trophies and other personal belongings that fill various rooms in your home? In order to provide a great first impression of your house, you may want to consider hiding these items before your home showing. The goal of a home showing is to give homebuyers a glimpse into what life would be like if they choose to purchase your residence. And if you keep your personal belongings out of sight, you can empower homebuyers to realize your home's potential and improve your chances of making a distinct first impression on homebuyers, too. Take a few minutes to place personal items in a desk drawer, a box in your attic or basement or other areas where these pieces will be out of sight during a home showing. By doing so, you can help your house create a unique impression, one that may make your home more attractive to prospective homebuyers. 3. Keep Your Home Clean. Ensure you make your bed, clean up your kitchen after breakfast and perform other last minute cleaning tasks to guarantee your home looks pristine. Ideally, any last minute cleaning tasks should only take a few minutes to perform. But ultimately, these efforts can make a world of difference in the eyes of prospective homebuyers. Guarantee your home is ready for an upcoming home showing Ė utilize the aforementioned tips, and you'll be able to accentuate the positives of your home to homebuyers at any time.

If youíre trying to decide whether itís best to move from your current home or to make the necessary improvements on the home, itís not an easy decision. One thing you may have to consider is how to get the capital in order to have those home improvements done. 

Thereís a variety of options available to you in order to secure a loan to renovate your home. Whether you need to renovate the kitchen, build out from your current property, or replace the heating system, thereís ways that you can get the money to complete these necessary updates. 


One thing to consider about any of the options discussed is that you donít want to be paying for home improvement loans until you need to update everything once again. If youíre preparing to sell your home, making improvements is a wise choice, as it can increase the return that youíll get on your home. 

Donít Run Out Of Cash


 If you cannot complete the improvements that you started, you may not be able to get another loan to complete them. You can typically borrow between 80 and 90% of your home equity. The downside to refinancing your home or taking out home equity lines of credit is that youíll need to pay closing costs once the loan is approved. In other words, youíll need to put out some cash in order to get some cash. 

Use Your Own Cash

If you have some cash saved up, itís wise to just do one project at a time. This can take some time, but can be more economical in the long run. If you donít need to complete your repairs in a hurry, then using your own savings is a good idea.

Refinance Your Home

If you would benefit from a lower interest rate, refinancing your home can be a great option. As long as the cost of repairs doesnít exceed the number of years that the updates will last, refinancing makes sense. 

Home Equity Credit Line


If your mortgage is locked in and working for you, home equity lines of credit are always a good option. You can draw money out as you need it and pay it back as you go. You wonít need to pay interest until you use the money and the loan is good for 10 years. The downside is that if you donít make the payments, you could lose your home.   

Home Equity Loans

This type of loan allows you to borrow a fixed amount and then pay back the loan with a fixed monthly installment. A 15 year term is typical of this type of loan.


Construction Loans


A construction loan can be used to build a house or to make large-scale renovations. These loans are short-term and not always easy to find access to. Not to mention that they are heavily managed and perhaps the least popular option presented here. 


FHA 203K Loans


This type of loan is generally used to purchase a home that is in need of much repair. The downside is that youíll need mortgage insurance for the entire life of the loan. Less complicated repairs often offer a more streamlined FHA loan of up to $35,000. 


FHA Title 1 Loans


These loans provide up to $25,000 for home improvements. The money is insured by the federal government and can be obtained from approved lenders. Homeowners donít need access to equity in order to get one of these loans and they are available in 20 year terms. 


These are just some of the options that are available to you as a homeowner seeking ways to get cash to make improvements to your home. You can tap into other types of personal loans including credit cards. Really, you need to do whatís best for your finances. Itís good to know that thereís options available to you to improve your home.

If youíre on the hunt for a home, youíre undoubtedly excited. You might be eager to ask a lot of questions and get all the information that you can. Youíre also probably eager to share quite a bit of information about yourself and your home purchase. While this is a great approach, this isnít the case for everyone youíre involved with in your real estate transaction. When youíre dealing with the sellerís agent, more information isnít always better. You donít need to share as much information with them as you may think you do. Your agent as a buyer is your advocate. They do know a lot of information about you, and they should. Your buyerís agent knows everything from your budget to your needs and wants. The sellerís agent doesnít need to know any of this! This is why you hire a buyerís agent in the first place. Hereís what you shouldnít divulge to a sellerís agent and why:


Your Opinion Of The House


Youíll want to be as neutral as possible when it comes to how much you like or dislike a house. While itís perfectly fine to let the agent know that you feel at home in the space and are interested in putting in an offer, you don't need to get into too many details. 


On the flip side, if you have a few things that you donít like about a house, you should keep those to yourself. You donít want to decide to put an offer in on the home, only to be seen as a less than serious buyer. In hot markets, you should always give yourself the upper hand. 


Your Budget


You should never let a sellerís agent know how much youíre looking to spend on a home. If sellers know how high or how low youíre willing to go on a home purchase, both the buyer and the seller should get a fair price for the home. Your goal as a buyer is to have your offer accepted at the best possible price. 


Let Your Agent Do His Job


While it can be hard in the midst of excitement, you should really let your agent do most of the talking when it comes to a home purchase. Your agent can help you through everything from negotiations to working with your lender to navigating you through open houses. Your agent may even be able to attend quite a few open houses right along with you. This way, youíll have someone else to do the talking for you. Just remember the tips above in case youíre flying solo through some home tours. While itís great to be eager on your home search, itís never to your benefit to be overzealous.
