Real Estate Terms….What They Really Mean!

Real estate has a language all of its own! While realtors can read between the lines, many home buyers are confused by the unfamiliar phrases they see on property descriptions. Understanding what these real estate terms really mean will help you know what to expect before walking through the front door.  Here are a few of the most frequently used real estate terms you might come across:

 

Sold As-Is – The seller won’t do any repairs; what you see is what you get.

Cozy or Charming – Think very small; the home may be cute or have character, but it is not spacious.

Hidden Gem – A diamond in the rough; a great opportunity for a buyer willing to do minor updating or repairs before moving in.

Investor Special – The property needs extensive repairs and updates in order to be livable.

Lives Large – The actual square footage may be small but the floorplan maximizes the space and makes it feel larger than it is.

Location, Location, Location – Home is within a desirable neighborhood, likely in close proximity to popular amenities, major roadways, parks, or schools.

Lovingly maintained – This usually means the home has a long time owner who kept the home in good condition, although it probably needs updated.

Mature Landscaping – Shrubs and trees need pruning or possibly replaced.

Motivated Seller – Signals that the owner wants to sell their house quickly or has received no offers and may be flexible on their list price.

Move-In Ready – Neutral décor, updated, no additional work is necessary for the house to be habitable.

Open Plan – Typically means that the great room and kitchen are adjacent and not separated by any walls.

Priced to Sell – Seller has initially priced the house low and is likely not willing to negotiate much off their list price.

  

Hope this helps you to decipher the language of real estate!  If you want to see a home after reading the description, reach out to me or any of the other great agents on our Thomas & Company team!

Don’t Price Yourself out of the Market

LansdownePricing is probably the most important dynamic in selling your home. To invite reasonable offers, your property needs to be perceived as the best value of all the competing homes for sale.

Buyers are savvy and know about the properties that are in competition with your home. A list price that is too high may drive them to purchase your neighbor’s home instead. Remember, the goal is to receive offers. It is always better to turn down an offer than receive none. This keeps you in control.

Perfect Timing

Everyone wants the highest possible selling price. In our experience, this is most likely to occur when your home is priced correctly from the beginning. New listings receive the most attention during the first 30 days they are on the market, and the showing activity is at its highest during this time as well. The number of buyers looking at your home goes down over time regardless of the price.

It is also crucial that the “correct” buyer actually sees that your home is for sale. A majority of buyers search using price range parameters. A home that is priced too high may not show up in their searches. For example, if the fair market value of your home is $300,000, and you have it priced at $350,000, the buyer searching for $300,000 homes likely won’t even see it. And it won’t stack up to what the buyer looking at $350,000 homes is expecting. Also, you may be perceived as a non-motivated or unrealistic seller.

At Thomas & Company, we work closely with our sellers to determine the best possible price to get their home sold quickly and for top dollar.

4 Essential New Albany Home Selling Strategies

When you are selling your home, it takes more than a coat of fresh paint and a newly mowed lawn to attract New Albany home buyers. With a majority of home buyers finding homes for sale online, every detail matters, from the way your home looks on the outside to the way your room looks in a listing photo.

Here are our essential home selling tips, which will help you sell quickly and for more money this spring.

1. Create the Best First Impression

front exterior and curb appeal of 4267 Vaux Link home for sale in New Albany OH

4267 Vaux Link in New Albany. Listing courtesy of Thomas & Company.

How your home looks from the outside can make or break a sale, since buyers tend to think that how your home looks on the outside reflects what it looks like on the inside. The more curb appeal your home has, the more likely it is to sell quickly and garner a higher selling price.

To increase your home’s curb appeal, try:

  • mowing the lawn and edging the yard
  • cleaning the gutters
  • painting the front door
  • setting flowers on either side of the door or walkway

2. Set the Stage for Showings

This New Albany home features neutral wall colors and furnishings, a crucial aspect of home staging.

The first impression from curb appeal needs to continue when buyers enter your home. Make sure that your home is clean and clutter-free, smells fresh, and looks like new.

Don’t forget to neutralize the interior — home staging is all about eliminating distractions to allow buyers to picture themselves living in your home. You can find more about home staging on our article about preparing your New Albany home to sell.

3. Attract Buyers with Quality Listing Photos

Home buyers appreciate high-quality photographs when searching for homes online.

Once your home has excellent curb appeal and has been staged well, it’s time to take pictures. With over 75% of home buyers looking at listings online first, it’s not enough to take a picture with your phone. You need to show them every perfect detail with a high-quality photograph.

4. Effectively Market Your Home Online

It’s no longer enough to put a “For Sale” sign in your yard. New Albany home buyers are searching online for homes, and home marketing has shifted to include social media marketing.
