How do I save money on Commissions?
Well, you can work with Hilton Head Island Real Estate Company. Legally, we cannot compare ourselves to other Real Estate Companies. However, our commission on selling condos and homes is only 5.5% and on lots, our commission is only 7.5%.
How to get a Free Market Analysis on your property?
Ask us to come visit and see the quality, size, view and location of your home. Many Real Estate Agents will give you prices over the phone. We feel that we cannot give you a proper value without seeing your home in person. How can you judge the quality and view without seeing it?
How can I sell my property for more money and quicker?
Update your home as much as you can with the money you can. For example, if you are in the upper end of homes or condos and your home is older, put in Granite countertops, Stainless Steel appliances, new carpet, new paint and update landscaping. Normally, you will get all this money back and then some. These items also help your home sell quicker. If you are in a mid price condo or home, paint, clean, new carpet, new quality appliances. Get rid of the clutter; make your home seem as large as possible. If you have effis stucco, REPLACE it! Do not just give the new buyer a credit to do it themselves; they do not want to go through the hassle. If you have a rental home near the beach, put in a pool, do not just give them an allowance. Make the property feel like a home, decorate. Sometimes, just new bedspreads, shower curtains, floor mats, new lamps and prints on the wall may be all you need. These can cost as little as $500-1500.
What are normal closing costs when I sell?
Normally on the selling side, you have to provide a CL-100 termite inspection, pay your attorneys fees, tax stamps and deed recording fees. Normally, I suggest, you keep around 1% of selling price for all of these fees. Sometimes they are more and sometimes less. For example, if you sell a lot, you have no CL-100 termite inspections costs.
