Cost-Saving Home Seller Tips

They say you need to spend money to make money. That includes selling a Lake Havasu home. But that does not mean that you have to break the bank. Use these cost-saving home seller tips to make improvements to your property that buyers will love.

Cost-Saving Home Seller Tips

Low-Cost "Fixes"

First up? Take care of the "little things". Add a fresh coat of paint. Even a color similar to the one currently on the walls helps make a home feel "newer" and "cleaner". Make sure to deep clean the carpets. Home improvement stores and even some grocery stores offer steam cleaner rentals. Or hire a pro. Then, oil any squeaky hinges and tighten any loose doorknobs. You don't want a loose doorknob to be the first impression a buyer receives when walking through the door. Even though these problems seem small, it makes the buyer wonder what other things you haven't kept up with in maintaining your house.

Fixed-Rate Mortgage Pros and Cons
What is a Fixed-Rate Mortgage?
The best place to start is probably to explain what exactly a fixed-rate mortgage entails. Well, as the name implies, the mortgage rate remains the same throughout the entire life of the loan. If you paid any kind of attention to the real estate market over the past few years, you saw mortgage rates go up and come down and then go back up again. In November 1981, mortgage rates for 30-year fixed-rate loans hit their apex at 18.39% over the last 50+ years. After the bubble burst in 2008, rates began to plummet. By the end of 2020, they hit their lowest point of 2.67%. Currently, we see them settling in at just under 7%, according to Freddie Mac. Someone who locked in their rate at 2.67 in December 2020 pays a lot less Z ...
