Selling Your Home, What Can Go Wrong?

You have a home in Maine to sell, what to expect in the real estate sale?

Lots of factors considered going in and all along the way to the clear to close memo. For the sit down, let’s have a closing on the home for sale in Maine. The first issue to wrestle with for the seller is are you sure you really want to sell?

Not do you kinda, sorta think you could make the move. To pass the keys please. But when a ready, willing and able buyer to purchase arrives on the scene and says “I’ll take it, this is the one.”. Can you follow through with the sale of the Maine home or does deer in the headlights panic happen?

The property being priced too high is fooling yourself as the seller of the Maine home or any property listing about to be put on the open market. Any real estate agent or broker has been a witness to awkward property sale conversations.

It is no fun to hear another REALTOR, someone else in the same industry be tarred and feathered, stoned. When the real issue is the listing was way too highly priced. And he or she should have just declined. Walked away.  Because you can not help an owner of a overpriced listing on property they believe will sell for much more than it is actually worth.

So selling your home in Maine, what else can go wrong? Once your determine the seller is going to go through with it and not get the jitters. Sellers remorse that makes the whole process useless. A waste of time, money, emotion.If there is a bank involved, is the buyer qualified for a loan? If they are not, why are we looking if not in a position to buy today?  Browsing property listings for sale is fine, but getting too far ahead of the process can cause a waste or time, emotion, money. Because the process does not complete. Due to missing vital pieces needed to line up and lock into place in the home buying process.

Beside bank underwriting for the buyer, the seller of the Maine home has loose ends that don’t interfere with their enjoyment of the property. But the folks that package the real estate mortgage to sell it on the secondary market have raised eyebrows. Over a porch roof with lifting shingles. Window panes that lost their seal between the insulated layers of glass.

If the issues of property listing condition are going to mess up the sale of the Maine real estate, let’s figure that out going in. Because completion of the real estate sale is what the target is.
