5 Reasons Selling Your Home As-Is Can Save You A Lot Of Money.

Is it Hard to Sell a House on Your Own In Omaha, NE?

July 6, 2020

So far this year we are experiencing a seller’s market in Omaha, NE. We have fewer listings than ever and more sales. This year, I like to say, that a monkey could sell a house, (and many do). But selling a house for the home seller is not an easy thing to do sometimes. For different sellers, they find different challenges.

You’ll spend a lot of time working on it

Even with agent-involved sales, selling a home can be take up hours of spare time. You have to get the house clean, declutter, prepare for moving, and so on.

Now, imagine doing all of that and also trying to…Find and manage a team of contractors to make your home look its best (which many agents include in their services)

Even if your calendar is pretty clear right now, this is a lot of work to take on. If you’re a busy parent or an over-scheduled professional? Forget about it — you’ll hardly have time to sleep once you add trying to sell your own home into the mix.

What if I own an undesirable home?

Outdated Homes
Many of today’s buyers are busy and don’t have the time or inclination to take on a fixer-upper project. If your home has an outdated kitchen or bathroom or if the wiring or plumbing need to be replaced, expect it to sit on the market longer than one with all of these issues resolved. That doesn’t mean you won’t find someone who sees the potential of the home; it just means it may take longer for that to happen or you may need to lower your price expectations. Homes with inefficient heating or cooling systems will have a hard time competing in the market. Drafty doors and windows will also discourage buyers.

Non-Traditional Homes
Homes that have a different label often appeal only to a certain type of buyer. For instance, manufactured or mobile homes have limited sales appeal; they generally have not held their value well. Log homes are another type of home that attracts a narrow buyer base. While they do have rustic charm, the unconventional style may not appeal to mainstream buyers. Log homes also require different maintenance and upkeep than traditional homes, which could be a concern.

Homes with odd design features or unusual shapes often, have serious damage or have been unoccupied for long periods of time usually sit on the market longer, waiting for that one buyer who appreciates unique or specialized styles. Recognize that you will need a strong marketing strategy if you should ever decide to sell. Consider utilizing McCright Properties' services to alleviate an unwanted financial and physical stress associated with owning home or property.
