Today we wanted to stop by and give you some advice on selling your home. Many people are selling this spring in Phoenix, so we’ve got four ways you can whip your home into shape by the time it hits the hot market. Here they are:

1. Look at your major appliances.
Check their ages, and have them inspected for condition. These big-ticket items are an example of something a buyer will ask you to replace, depending on how old they are.

2. Get in the buyer’s mindset.
The best way to make sure you don’t miss anything when preparing your home for sale is by getting into the buyer’s mindset.  Walk through your home and think of things that a buyer might ask you to fix, whether it’s a leaky faucet or chipped paint.

3. Bring in the pros.
Bring in a home inspector before you list so you make sure that nothing is missed. If we can catch a lot of the little things up-front, it makes the buyer more comfortable when it comes time to make an offer.

4. Decide what to remodel.
There are going to be a lot of items on the inspection report, but you don’t have to completely fix them all. Don’t remodel everything, just take care of the things that will add value to your home and get you your money back.

We can help with all of this. If you have any questions for us, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

Four Questions You Need to Ask Before Signing a Mortgage in Phoenix

Today I want to discuss four different questions you need to ask before you sign a mortgage. Let's dive right in.
1. What's the APR?
2. Does it carry a pre-payment penalty?
3. Does this work with your timeline?
Look at the GFE and the HUD-1 together. Make sure that the good faith estimate that you got matches the HUD-1 at closing.
4. How long will your rate lock, and what is the maximum cap?
If you're out looking for a home you probably don't have a property locked up, so you want to make sure to manage the rate lock and work with your agent and your lender to make sure that they match.

We can help you with this process. We know a lot of great mortgage lenders in Phoenix, so please don't hesitate to reach out to us about this.
We look forward to hearing from you!
