How Fast are you looking to Sell?
When you make the decision to sell your home, it can be tricky to know which changes would make your home sell more quickly or boost the sale price — and which would just be a waste of your time and resources. If you need to sell your home immediately — say, because you have already committed to buying another home or need to move because of work — it is in your best interest to do everything in your power to ensure a quick sale at the highest price possible then you must commit a significant amount of money to get the quickest sale and highest and best price.If you have more flexibility, and you feel uncomfortable making too many pricey changes to your home before selling, it may make more sense to focus on cleaning, decluttering and making small cosmetic changes.

Selling a Parents Home when the Parent Dies
Selling a home after a death isn’t like other real estate transactions. Not only are the homes often overstuffed with decades’ worth of belongings; they’re also often poorly maintained. In addition, heirs sometimes disagree over pricing and marketing the house. And sellers are not only dealing with the house sale, they’re mourning their loss and figuring out how to handle an estate — often while living in another part of the country. It is a difficult task wrapped in emotion. People will go through a hard time. They miss their parent, and they have to be making smart decisions. Yet cannot pull the trigger to sell because of emotional attachment of living there with the parent for years. Meanwhile the taxes, utility bills are continuing to come in and need to be paid, quite often becoming a burden. On top of that repair bills to keep the property up even to sell are daunting and sometimes cannot be done, because you have your own money obligations. The normal reaction is to list it with a broker be done with it. But the cleaning the home preparing at least decently to list it with the broker can also is a financial and time burden. Selling it to RESolutionsUSA is easy we do the cleaning out, we do the repairs, and all you do is show up at closing and collect your check and walk away. n some cases we can get you more money than listing it with a Realtor ( Click here to Find out More)
Beware: The Liability of Carrying an Unoccupied Home or Property
When properties are left vacant or are unoccupied, steps should be taken to prevent or mitigate losses due to heating system, electrical system, water damage, vandalism or other causes. These all cost money or your time to do. Ask yourself, why you want to have a property vacant. Is it a deceased parent or relative’s home? Why subject yourself to continued property tax burden and water/sewer bills (in spite of no activity most municipalities charge you a flat rate for the hookup each month). Leaving a house or building without heat causes contraction of major building components opening up avenues for water to enter. This causes more damage, thereby decreasing value and subjecting you to repair costs or lost equity for having to sell it low due to the damages. Sell it to RESolutionsUSA NOW and get your money out of it. Why leave it unoccupied when you can sell it get the money you need.
In Probate? Inherited Property?
Are you in Probate? Most people believe that you have to go through the standard court process. It is simply not true. You can technically sell your property under the Independent Administrations of estate act in which the proceeds will be transferred to the estate’s assets until final distribution. Sell your Property to RESolutionsUSA to eliminate any carrying costs you will need to apply towards the property, the long time period of getting a listing agent, and the 3-6 month time period, to name a few. RESolutionsuSA can close in as little as 14-21days when we sign a contract with you. Can I really sell a probate property that quickly? Yes, depending on the type of filing and whether or not the person handling the estate has “full authority” to sell. Assuming you have the right filing, you may be able to dispose of the asset under the Independent Administrations of estate act.
Do you have a Lien Against your Property or Home?
There are two kinds of liens. Property Lien and a Judgment Lien. On a Property Lien You voluntarily give the creditor rights to your property in the event of a default. The creditor accomplishes this by making the offer to finance the purchase of the property conditional on you giving it a lien on that property. If the creditor has a lien, if you default on the terms of the agreement (for example, don’t pay your mortgage), the creditor may take action to repossess or foreclose on the property you pledged as a security interest. This agreement is referred to as a property lien. On a Judgment Lien a creditor obtains a judgment lien by winning a lawsuit against you. While creditors have numerous options to collect on a debt, creditors use judgment liens as the main way to ensure you actually pay the debt off. The creditor first obtains a judgment against you. The creditor records the lien in the county where you or the property resides and attaches the judgment as proof of the creditor’s entitlement to the lien.
There are three ways at extinguishing liens. Pay off the debt; ask the court to remove the judgment lien. or file for bankruptcy. Paying off the debt by selling the property. But listing with an Agent and bringing to a condition to sell takes money and time. Asking the court to remove the judgment lien is a 50/50 chance that also takes time and money to pay the attorney to administrate the removal. Lastly filing for bankruptcy will ruin your credit and make your financial situation WORSE. So sell your property to RESolutionsUSA and let us get you the cash to pay off the debt or judgment and in most cases walk away with some cash in your pocket
Better to Rent or Sell, When a relative wants to move in with you and Rent their home?
Lets say you have a mother who lives on a fixed income and has a 60-year-old house that needs about $10,000 to $15,000 in repairs. She would like to live with you and use the house as rental property. But would it be better for her to sell the house now and not pour much of her money into the mortgage, utilities and repair? Or, would it be better for her to rent the home now and sell it in several years after the housing market rebounds, and the home value is 28% less than what she owes the mortgage company? Does this sound closely familiar? The Bottom line is SELL it. ( read the linked article by hitting the button below).
Significant memories and experiences may reside in that home, making it hard to permanently cut the ties. Sometimes our emotions about money carry more weight than our rational decisions. Talking about these feelings can help us understand our decisions. But you MUST look at the NUMBERS. after her house sells, she will have no cash-flow drain on her fixed income going forward. There will also be no sleepless nights worrying about issues that often bother inexperienced landlords. Although the rental home will bring certain tax deductions, the rental income will be taxable. Also, if she converts the house from personal to investment property, she may face capital gains taxes in the future, if the housing market rebounds prior to sale. Sell it and pay off the mortgage and allow her to save the difference. Rather than listing it and waiting 3-6 months, paying for commissions, closing costs and fees, not to mention to get the home in order to show, sell it to RESolutionsUSA and let us pay the closing costs. There is no waiting we can close when YOU want to close. We can have the entire transaction complete in an average of 21 days. So why wait
How Expensive is Your State?
Ever wondered if you could afford a nicer house if you moved to a different state? The answer just might be yes. When it comes to house prices, not all states are created equal. For example, a property in California might end up costing almost three times as much as that same property in Ohio. Moreover, costs to upgrade and bring your home to modern amenity standards to sell high will also vary from State to State. The link below shows the cost of a home in each state by square feet. You will notice a certain trend as you move towards the two coastal regions. Also, you will see the top five cheapest and most expensive states for home prices.
Can I Use the Price Per Square Foot to Figure Home Values?
Price per square foot on homes sold around you to obtain either an average or Median price per square foot is to determine TRENDS of the market, NOT VALUE. Say you are looking at a 1,500-square foot home that is listed for $150,000. The price per square foot is $100. Maybe the home next door is 2,000 square feet, and it is listed at $185,000. The price per square foot of the larger home is $92.50. Which is a better buy? Smaller square foot homes command higher per square foot costs. Larger square foot homes command lower per square foot prices. To get a good feel for square foot pricing, it helps to look at how square footage is calculated.
It’s not wise to base the purchase price of a home you are going to buy on either median nor average per square foot costs. That’s because each home is unique. It is better to use these numbers as trends. Prices per square foot can vary based on location, condition, improvements, and updates, including lot sizes, and whether it’s a one-story or multi-level home, among other factors. The main reason prices per square foot is important is to show you TRENDS, not value.
How Does the Price Per Square Foot Help to Determine Values? In short, it really doesn’t. You can’t take the average price per square foot and multiply it times the square footage of the home you are thinking about buying. It doesn’t work that way. Appraisers don’t rely on square foot costs. The pricing per square foot simply gives you average or median ranges; it shows you trends. In most cases, it does not accurately compute value.
