How much money do I need to have saved for the home SELLING process?
A: Some of the expenses you’ll want to prepare for when selling your home go beyond just commissions and closing costs (sometimes)! Here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when budgeting for the home selling process.
Not all of these are a have to, but something to consider!
🎨 Fresh Coat of Paint and/or touch up
🧼 Professional Cleaning and HVAC Cleaned and Serviced
🛋 Staging (ask me for more info 😉)
✏️ Flood Elevation Certification (if you’re in a high risk flood zone)
💰 Realtor fee
🧾 Mortgage and Liens Payoff
💵 Closing Costs (Seller’s have their own closing costs. That includes title policy [negotiation point], recording and title fees. Sometimes the buyer may ask you to pay for theirs [negotiation point])
🔨 Repairs – negotiated or appraisal required
