Home Seller Tips: Seal the deal

In some places there are multiple homes for sale in the same neighborhood.  One such place in Brevard County, Florida is the planned unit development of Viera in Melbourne, Florida.

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.
None of the above are hidden secrets but rather suggestions that might just close the deal and make your house more appealing than the house next door.

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
