6 Home Selling Myths You Should Stop Believing

Buying and selling a house can be a challenging thing to partake in, but if you know how to actually do it then it is not impossible to do them. However, despite having all the information you need to sell or buy a house, there are still plenty of home selling myths out there that many people believe in. The question is, is there any part of these myths that’s true? If you are one of those people who are always hesitant when it comes to purchasing a house then this article is for you.

The Myths to Avoid

No. 1 Knowing what your home is worth – of course, it is a given that you know how much you have spent for your current home. How much you labored for work just to get this house together. No one else knows the value of your home but, correct but when it comes to selling your home, you need to leave the evaluation to an actual house appraiser. Home evaluations should be done by a professional especially if you want to put this in the market. Truth is, house prices are overpriced because of the owner’s emotional factor. If you want an actual price for your house then let the pros handle it.

No. 2 You can sell your house on your own – sounds like a good idea right? Well, truth is, there are a few people who have done this BUT let me stop you right there. Those people who have sold their houses are far more experienced than you are. They probably have the best connections of people that they can contact in case they need help. However, if you are a first-time house seller, understand that there’s more to just putting up a for sale sign outside your house.

Selling a house on your own requires you a lot of paper works and hustle in order to market your home properly but if you allow a real estate agent to do all the work for you then selling your home is not going to be a hard thing. For one, real estate agents have the right people to contact, places to market your house and even identify those people who are not interested in buying your property. Of course, there are many who think they can sell their house because they don’t want to pay the agent fees but if you are someone new, getting a pro to do all these for you can save you from bad dealings and wrong house pricing in the future.

No. 3 It’s okay to sell the house AS IS – some houses are in great condition, no doubt but there are plenty of good looking houses that needs a lot of work on the inside. If this is your house then you simply cannot sell it as is. You might think it’s in great shape but you may have missed the most important home makeover that could lift your home’s value. For this, you need to hire a professional house appraiser. This way your property can be properly assessed.

No. 4 House changes must be drastic – of course, nothing is wrong with a home renovation the way you want your house to look like before selling it but if you don’t have the budget, you don’t have to do so. However, what you can do is to freshen up a part of your house a little bit. A fresh paint on the walls, new lighting and maybe a new landscape in your front lawn can be done. Either way, these small makeovers can help increase the value of your house before you sell it. Keep in mind that you don’t have to do major repairs or spend so much. Just make sure that you do a good job at it and keep your house presentable at all times for potential buyers.

No. 5 Selling a house in spring is the best time to do so – there is a belief that the best time to sell your house is during spring or summer but the truth is, you can sell your home ANY TIME. You don’t have to wait for spring or summer in order to sell your home because you do this all year round. Spring and summer are ideal months simply because school is out and people are on a break but the months after that are actually great to sell homes too. There may not be plenty of people looking for houses around that time but there are people who do. The bottom line is, you must be aware on what is going on around your local market in order to see which time is the best time to sell your home. With the help of your realtor, you can definitely sell your home in no time.

No. 6 You must rely on an online home value estimateshome estimates online offer you a head start but understand that this is nothing to the expert opinion of a realtor. There are plenty of ways to get your house estimated or appraised but an actual person looking at the value of your home is always an excellent way to get things done. This is because many pros have the experience when it comes to home appraisals and have no problems in giving you a marketing analysis. Not only that, if your home has a few upgrades then they can even calculate the best price for you according to how they have inspected it. So don’t just rely on the internet evaluation; always approach a realtor for matters like this.

Final Thoughts

Selling a house could be exciting but also worrisome if you don’t know what you are doing. Not only that, opinions of other people as well as house selling myths plus little knowledge about selling a house can indeed make you nervous but you don’t have to be. So if you don’t want to fail at this, the best thing you can do is approach the pros. That is it. You don’t have to do everything on your own if you have a good realtor to help you out. Sure, fees may be a bit heavy on the pockets BUT if you sell the house right away, you will have profits from all of these. So go ahead, call your local real estate agent and sell your house the right way. You can thank me later, good luck!

Thank you guys. We were selling our house to Casey And Ryan and there was some HOA liens that totaled over $40k and they met with the HOA board with me and got them reduced to less than $5k so I walked away with $35k more than I thought I was going to. True professionals!

Me and my wife had gone through a divorce and we wanted a quick way to get rid of our property so we could just move on with our lives, Thankfully Ryan came in and helped us out, I didn't have the time to deal with the headache of people coming in and out as well as all the repairs that were needed. He gave me top dollar for my home and I was out in 7 days!

We have seen their signs around town and thought it was a scam, we decided to give them a call and I couldn't have been happier with our experience. They were professional and knowledgable, they paid for all closing costs and even helped with our family move. Great guys and great company! Thanks again!

What an AWESOME experience!! Casey and Ryan are THE BOMB!! They either answer their phone ALWAYS or respond within minutes. They originally called to see if I wanted to sell but I wasn't interested in selling. However, my neighbor had to sell immediately so I referred them to her, she accepted their offer & they closed escrow within weeks. It would've been A LOT sooner but there were delaying issues on the seller side. Anyways, they got it closed & EVERYONE is happy!! Thank you so much Casey & Ryan :). YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

Unfortunately, I never thought I would see myself having to get rid of my home, especially in a fast time frame. However, life happens, and I needed to sell my home quickly due to a death in the family. I reached out to 4 companies in Las Vegas, and We Buy Any Vegas House not only was the most efficient, but the friendliest, most reasonable, and compassionate. The other 3 companies did not even compare. Casey and Ryan have gone above and beyond to make sure that this worked for me. They truly care about you, which means a lot especially during a tough time. They put in the effort to care about the client first, as well as my family during this tough time. I am so grateful to have found them, and to top it off, they bought my house and put cash in my pocket in 7 days. Would recommend to all! Use this company, you can't go wrong! Thanks to Casey, Ryan and John!

After a tenant trashed my rental property, I was faced with the decision of remodeling or selling the property in its current state. I called Casey and he walked me through the entire process, start to finish. After factoring in the amount of time and money the remodel would take, it was clear that selling to them was the best decision for me. Within a week of my first contact with Casey and his team, we closed on the property and I had cash in hand. I'll definitely be reaching out to them in the future. THANKS!!!

As a very skeptical person I always believe that my best interest is not priority when dealing with people that want my business. I cannot name the countless times that I have been burned. After looking to sell my house for a cash offer, I was called by a lot of investors, most of which had very little customer service. Several didn't return call when they said they would and then when they finally called me back, they got anger when I decided not to use their Services. From day one Ryan not only treated me like is #1 customer but also treated my whole family like long time friends. I most also state that his offer wasn't even the highest. I took the lower off with him due to the fact that he help with crucial tax situations that I needed taken care before receiving them money so it wouldn't bit me in the butt later. He answered every call before and after the process was completed. 99% of others wouldn't have even answered a text once they got the money. Could I have made a couple of thousand dollars more with someone else? Sure, but the peace of mind in knowing that it was done the right way by someone who actually was professional and care was more than worth it. Ryan has made a customer and friend for life.

I was in a really tough spot because my Husband was in the Hospital and had passed away. I was completely unready for this and had discovered that there would be considerable expenses!  I had received several letters from companies interested in the property on an "as is" basis.  Most had never got back to me after I called them or were too low of offers.  I put an inquiry in their website and was immediately contacted by the Owner who was able to come the very next day!  The entire process was easy and professional.  Thank you We Buy Any Vegas House!
