You have a house in Hawaii and you have decided to sell it. How do you start, where do you begin?
Selling a house is a hard decision and you might be overwhelmed. Whether you have a house in Big Island, Honolulu, Kauai, Maui, Oahu, Lanai, or any other cities in Hawaii, with some research you can be your own real estate agent and selling your home in any Hawaiian cities?
Prepare Your House For Sale
Clean your house inside and outside. Remove your personal belongings. Repair and reconstruct if necessary. Give your house fresh paint. Make it ready to move. Place “House For Sale” poster on your house.
Buyers always want to move into a nice neighborhood. Thus, talk to your neighbors and tell them you are selling your house. Tell them to give positive remarks about your house to the potential buyers. Take pictures of interior and exterior and show them to the potential buyers and property dealers. When you are showing your house to the potential buyers, real estate agents or property dealers, make them a good impression. You can sell your house in as it is condition (which may need repairs) or ready to move in (renovated), set your price accordingly.
Get in Touch With Brokers, Property Dealers, Or Real Estate Companies
Register your house with property dealers or real estate companies in your city. Give them the pictures of interior and exterior of your house. Have them inspect your house. Set a selling price. Talk about how much commission they are charging to sell your house.
You can also talk to a real estate agent directly. However, while choosing real estate agent or broker, you must remember her/she must be based in the Hawaiian city where your house is located. Always look into the agent’s portfolio and choose only when he/she has experience.
Find Real Estate Websites
There are lots of websites that deal with buying and selling house. Register your house on the website. While choosing a website, try to find out whether it works on your city or not. If you have a house in Honolulu, there is no point in going to the dealers who deal with house in Big Island. You can make your offer along with the details of your house. Or you can also contact the website and talk about your house.
Advertise on Newspapers or Websites
Classified ads are cheap, but results are very positive. Alternatively, you can also have bigger ads on newspapers and website. You are selling your house and there might be people looking to buy a house. When you advertise your house, the potential buyers may find your house.
Understand the Legal Issues
If your house is mortgaged, first talk to the mortgage lender about selling your house. Find out about the necessary paper work. You must also hire a solicitor to deal with legal work to transfer the property rights. Talk to the officers at the city council or municipality office and understand all the clauses of selling a house.
Understand the unique selling proposition of your house and negotiate wisely. If necessary, you may also lower your price.
