Staging Your Fenwick Island Home: a Matter of Detail

Today’s Internet-savvy home seller knows that before potential Fenwick Island buyers even make their way to a home’s online listing they may already have been exposed to the property’s pictures posted elsewhere. Since first impressions can be decisive, it’s all the more reason to heed something that advertising professionals have always known: the viewer’s eye is automatically drawn directly to any visible flaws.

That’s why, if you want to entice more buyers by posting the most attractive teaser pics of your Fenwick Island home, you need to think in staging terms. Professional staging is the most foolproof way to create flawless images, of course — but there are also some easy and inexpensive approaches to creating eye-pleasing images of your home.

Get your Stuff Out

The first rule of staging a home in Fenwick Island is to make it as inviting as possible — and nobody feels at home when they are surrounded by a stranger’s stuff. Remove the blankets piled on the couch, and take down the Spiderman posters from Junior’s room. When a viewer’s eye goes to a personality-defining detail, it usually shapes the whole impression. Making your home a blank canvas will allow prospective buyers to picture their own belongings fitting nicely in place.

Call the Professional Cleaners

You need to get every inch of the home as clean as possible for it to be inviting (and worth the asking price). This means cleaning things you probably haven't even considered before, like the garage door and the sliding window tracks. Hiring a professional crew for even just a day can do wonders to create a ‘like new’ aura.

Adjust Lighting 

One of the things that make staged homes look so warm and welcoming is great lighting. A lot of us have gradually adopted minimal lighting at home — something that can be reversed with a few extra lamps and higher-wattage bulbs. Staging is just one element that goes into a successful Fenwick Island home sale. Contact me today to talk about all the other pieces!

Sussex County Seller Financing: a Powerful Inducement

The recent Mortgage Credit Availability Index shows a slight relaxation in lending standards — but as most Delaware home buyers and sellers will agree, getting a mortgage is still difficult. With mortgage availability benchmarked at 100, although it’s currently at  111 ½, compared with the 800 it stood at in 2007, today’s is still a tough environment.

That’s why Delaware seller financing is being considered by more homeowners. When a home is owned outright, seller financing can draw a higher selling price (with future interest payments as a bonus). But before making such an offer, Delaware homeowners need to consider all of the ramifications: there is more involved than just the assumption of added risk.

Of course, ordering and examining a buyer’s credit report is the starting point. If the story it tells needs too many explanations, it’s time to walk away. Foreclosing on a seller-financed home can be more difficult than through a traditional foreclosure —particularly if the financing documents are substandard.

At first blush, seller financing might seem to simplify the whole transaction, but in fact some details usually handled by a bank must be hammered out:

  • Who will pay for the appraisal; who for the inspection?
  • Who is going to be responsible for property taxes and upkeep?
  • Will the deed be transferred to the buyer right away, or only after the home is paid off? 

Those issues point out why a “handshake deal” can’t be recommended for a Delaware seller financing arrangement. Just consider the last two points: if the deed hasn’t been transferred and taxes are in arrears, whose credit is harmed?

A good attorney will draft an agreement that nails down responsibilities and penalties for a buyer default as well as a detailed payment structure. A well-drafted seller financing agreement protects both parties by preventing misunderstandings and providing an unambiguous inducement for good behavior.

Given the right buyer, clear communicating and a framework cemented by the proper paperwork, Delaware seller financing can provide the missing element that makes a sale possible.
