Are you selling a house in Phoenix? Learn more about some common hassles you can avoid! We can help you make selling your Phoenix house easy!

If you are selling your Phoenix house, you might be preparing yourself for a long and drawn out process, filled with expenses and hassles. It doesn’t have to be that way. By preparing yourself ahead of time, you can avoid many major hassles that come along with selling your house in Phoenix.

Get Your Own Inspection

One major hassle sellers encounter is being blindsided by a long list of necessary repairs they will need to make after the buyer has their inspection. Many sellers choose to have their own inspection done so they know what to fix and what to prepare for when the potential buyers want to negotiate. A small cost upfront can help you immensely down the road.

Dealing With A Bad Agent

There are many signs of a bad agent that you can watch out for.

  • They aren’t doing what you hired them to do.
  • They don’t answer your calls or call you back right away
  • They don’t communicate with you what’s happening during the process
  • They had you list your house at an inflated price.

Agents are busy, but they should also be professional. The best agents will make you feel as if you are their only client. They have a big payday coming if they sell your house. make sure they are doing their job and are deserving of it. Before you sign a contract or listing agreement, carefully review it. Not all agents provide the same level of service. If your agent isn’t holding up their end of the bargain, call them on it! Many will cancel the contract if they are worried you will leave a bad review about them.

Waiting Around For A Buyer

Can be very frustrating for families and people living in limbo, while waiting for an unknown buyer. In some cases, the process can take months. If  you have the house listed with an agent, they will have likely recommended that your personal belongings be removed from the home. This means you will be living out of a suitcase and likely feeling a bit uncomfortable in your own home. To help families handle this, make sure to keep a few special, comforting things around, and keep in mind, it won’t last forever.

Negotiating Repairs After The Buyer’s Inspection

The buyer’s agent will try to negotiate as much of the repair work as they can after the home inspection has been completed. You can be prepared for this by defining limits on what you will fix beforehand. Decide that you will only pay $5,000 toward repairs or that you will fix the roof and nothing else. Many sellers will be so desperate to sell, that by the time the inspection is done, they will fix anything just to sell it, ultimately costing thousands they had been expecting to put in the bank. You can avoid the property inspection altogether by selling your house as-is to The Trusted Home Buyer.
