Top 10 Real Estate Tips for Buying and Selling

1.  Consider buying a condominium rather than a single-family home. You can find some impressive condos located in Miami that rival single-family homes. These can make a great investment as well, since when you decide to sell it is generally easy to find buyers in this area.
2.  Make sure you can afford the home. Many people get excited by the prospect of owning, but they do not factor in other costs, such as homeowner association fees. Know the true costs of buying.
3.  Check out the neighborhood. While anyone can talk about how great a neighborhood is in an online listing, you will want to visit the location to see for yourself. Is it convenient? Is it safe? Are things you want to do within walking distance?
4.  When you are staging the home, hire professionals for the cleaning, and perhaps the staging, as well. The professional stages have a keen insight into what people expect when they come to an open house.
5.  When you are getting ready to sell your home and want to show it to potential buyers, make sure you remove your personal items first. It is easier for people to imagine themselves living in a place if it is not filled with personal pictures and the like.
6.  When selling, know the value of your home. Do not mistake your emotional value for the true value of the property. Look up comparable properties and speak with your real estate agent.
7.  Advertise the home wisely. Some condominiums and properties can be advertised anywhere – online, through social media, papers, and the like. However, some sellers, especially high-end sellers, prefer to remain discreet. You may want to work with a real estate agent who can keep the details of your sale quiet.
8.  Sellers should upgrade parts of the property if needed. For example, if you have been in the home for several years, you might want to update the bathrooms or the kitchen.
9.  Work with a quality agent who knows how to find the right properties for the buyers and how to find the right clients for the sellers. Find someone who truly knows and understands the Miami area.
10.  Don’t get frustrated if it takes you longer than you thought to sell the property, or to find the perfect property to buy for that matter. Take your time when looking for a property as a buyer so you can find the right place to call home. As a seller, reevaluate your pricing and marketing strategies. Miami is a hot spot – your place will sell.
