What can a seller do to "close the deal?"
The easy answer is offer something extra to sweeten the deal. What are some of the things that could help lock up a deal?
- Builders often buy down a buyers interest rate. Offer to do this or at least cover some, if not all, of the buyer's closing costs.
- A less expensive sweetener could be the one year home warranty which usually costs a seller about $500 or so depending on the size and amenities.
- Make some or all of the repairs indicated on the property inspection report.
- Provide a one year termite bond. This is another inexpensive perk.
Why spend a little to close a deal now? Consider your carrying costs. Sellers should weigh the cost of holding a house for another month or several months.
