From the time an offer is made on a property, and the deal is done, you may face quite a few challenges. Whether you’re buying or selling a home, the process can be dizzying. There are a lot of things that go on from the time an offer is accepted, and the closing table is reached. The entire process of home buying and selling is designed with built-in protections to help both buyers and sellers avoid feeling a lot of regrets. Below, you’ll find some familiar situations in the buying and selling process, and what’s available to help you avoid disappointment.


Once An Offer Is Accepted, Is It Binding? 


If you were overzealous to accept an offer on the home you’re selling and wish you had looked at others before making a decision, you’re not out of luck. Once you’re under contract, you’re obligated to sell to a buyer. The reason you may want to look at other offers is that it doesn’t hurt to have a “backup” buyer. If something falls through with the first buyer, the second buyer in line becomes automatically under contract. While you may not necessarily sell for more, in this case, there’s a sure way available to help you sell your home fast. 


The Buyer Doesn’t Have The Financing They Thought They Did


If a buyer’s financial backing falls through or if the buyer is unable to get financing by the closing date, as a seller, you can walk away. Any financial changes to the contract that would impact you as a seller including a change in the type of loan, downpayment amount, or any variation from the contract terms allow the seller to end the contract unscathed. 


Something Wasn’t Disclosed About The Property


Not everything is required to be disclosed by a seller. It all depends upon the rules within the state where you are buying. Understand what’s required to be revealed. If you feel uncomfortable with something, you can inquire about it, or add a contingency to have the problem addressed. Things like a death on the property can't be changed, for example. Your state may not even require that these events be disclosed.


The Home Inspection Raised Some Concerns 


If the home inspection reveals some issues that the seller isn’t willing to fix, you have the right as a buyer to walk away. In many cases, these problems would be things like wiring or plumbing issues. 


The Property Appraised For Less Than The Offer


If the property appraises for less than what you offered for the home, you may feel quite upset as a buyer. Don’t worry! There are a few things that you can do. Lenders won’t give you more than what the property appraises for. You can, however, bring more of your own cash to the closing table. You can also wait for the seller to adjust the asking price, or withdraw your offer altogether. The problem with the last solution is that you may lose any earnest money deposits

Selling a home can be a major hassle. Lucky for you, family members and friends may be able to lend a helping hand as you prep your house for the real estate market.

There are many reasons why you should include loved ones in the home selling journey, including:

1. Loved ones can help you promote your house to potential property buyers.

Family members and friends can share details about your home with large groups of potential homebuyers. That way, you can boost your chances of stirring up interest in your home as soon as your residence hits the real estate market.

Encourage family members and friends to promote your home via social media and word of mouth. If loved ones allocate plenty of time and resources to share information about your home with others, they may be able to help you get the optimal results during the home selling journey.

2. Loved ones can help you complete assorted home improvement projects.

Although your home may look great both inside and out, there may be minor property improvement tasks that you need to complete before you add your house to the real estate market. Fortunately, loved ones may be able to help you finish assorted home improvement tasks.

Family members and friends may be able to assist you as you clean your house. They might even be able to take excess items off your hands so you can declutter your residence quickly and effectively.

Furthermore, loved ones may be able to offer expert recommendations for various home repair projects. And if you need major home repairs like roof maintenance or a complete backyard overhaul, family members and friends may be able to help you get in touch with the right home repair professionals.

3. Loved ones can help you minimize stress at each stage of the homebuying journey.

The process of selling a home can be long and arduous, especially for those who choose to embark on the home selling journey alone. However, loved ones can help you stay calm, cool and collected throughout this journey, regardless of what happens.

Family members and friends are happy to support you in any way possible. As such, they will listen to your home selling concerns and queries and ensure you can minimize stress time and time again.

Also, loved ones may be able to provide home selling insights that you might struggle to receive elsewhere. If family members or friends have sold homes in the past, they can offer guidance to help you streamline the home selling journey.

If you need extra help with selling your home, don't hesitate to reach out to a real estate agent, either. This housing market professional understands the ins and outs of the real estate sector and will help you generate substantial interest in your property.

Ready to add your house to the real estate market? Get your loved ones involved in the home selling process, and you can move one step closer to optimizing the value of your residence.
