Selling a House Fast

10 Tips to Sell Your Home Fast!

1.    Get rid of clutter. Throw out or file stacks of newspapers and
magazines. Pack away most of your small decorative items. Store
and out of season clothing to make closets seem roomier.
Clean out the garage.

2.    Wash your windows and screens to let more light into the interior.

3.    Keep everything extra clean. Wash fingerprints from light switch
plates. Mop and wax floors. Clean the stove and refrigerator. A
clean house makes a better first impression and convinces buyers that
the home has been well cared for.

4.   Get rid of smells. Clean carpeting and drapes to eliminate cooking
odors, smoke, and pet smells. Open the windows.

5.    Put higher wattage bulbs in light sockets to make rooms seem
brighter, especially basements and other dark rooms. Replace any
burnt-out bulbs.

6.    Make minor repairs that can create a bad impression. Small problems,
such as sticky doors, torn screens, cracked caulking, or a dripping
faucet, may seem trivial, but they’ll give buyers the impression
that the house isn’t well maintained.

7.   Tidy your yard – cut the grass, rake the leaves, trim the bushes and edge
the walkways.  In the winter, keep the stairs and driveway snow free.

8.    Patch holes in your driveway and reapply sealant, if applicable.

9.    Clean out your gutters and polish your front door, doorknob and house numbers.

10.  Finally, list your home with Walter DiLoreto for maximum exposure and to ensure your home gets the attention it deserves.  Walter will be there to help you every step of the way and make sure your home gets sold in today’s competitive market.  Free Market Analysis

Buying A Home Before Selling Your Existing Property

By Bill Gassett

Buying a home before selling an existing property you own is one of those real estate topics that I know gets debated quite a bit at the kitchen table all across America. It often happens unexpectedly.

You might be browsing the online housing ads, or you may just be driving in a neighborhood you like when you see it – a house you want, and for a great price to boot.

Unfortunately, you are still making payments on your current home.

You haven’t put it on the market yet, or you have, but it has yet to sell. Either way, you are in a tight position. Buying another home before selling your current property is a risky proposition for anyone without serious income. It is possible, but for most people, it is not recommended.

The question then becomes is buying a home before selling yours a smart move? Buying a house before selling your existing home is something only you can decide, but there are some things worth considering.

Benefits of Buying Before Selling

Even though most buyers are in no position to buy before selling their existing property, there are still a few benefits worth mentioning. There is a reason why you considered the idea in the first place, so it might be beneficial to review what you would have to gain.

You’re probably considering buying first because you found a property that is exactly what you want or one that is such a great deal that you feel like you cannot pass it up.

The reason could be more space is needed but just hadn’t gotten around to be a serious home buyer yet.

These are all legitimate reasons to want to buy a home, and opportunities like this can pop up, even if you have yet to sell your current home.

Everyone intends to get a great deal, and everyone has a dream home whether they have thoroughly thought through the idea yet or not.

When you come upon a house that fits one or both of these criteria, it can trigger some emotions and desires. You can picture yourself perfectly living in this new place, or you can see how much money you will net once you do sell your home.

You can also look forward to a smooth transition once you sell your home because you will have already purchased your new one.

If you have the finances, you may even see the potential benefits of carrying both houses – the old one with renters paying the mortgage while you enjoy your new home.

This could especially be worthwhile to you if the Real Estate market is on the rise and you see the potential for selling your existing home somewhere down the line for a more substantial profit.

Doing Work Before You Move In

Another significant benefit to buying another home before selling the one you currently own is the ability to go in ahead of time and make the improvements you desire so it is a place you will want to call home.

Some of the improvements that are a heck of a lot easier to complete when a home is vacant are refinishing hardwood floors, painting, and even remodeling projects like kitchens and baths. Many would kill to be able to have all of these things done before the moving truck ever pulls into the driveway.

All of these benefits are things you might gain from buying before selling your property. However, it is worthwhile to look at the risks of such a proposition. There are reasons why so few people go this route.

Risks of Buying Before Selling Your Home


Buying a home before selling existing property can bring with it a lot of financial risks. The first thing to look at before you go buying the new house is your finances. Can you afford to pay both mortgages for an extended period?

This is something the bank is going to want to know, and something you should be clear on before you jump in. Selling a house is an uncertain business, and it could take months – possibly a year or more – before you can sell. If all things go well, this will not be the case. But you must be able to cover the payments on both mortgages for some time.

If you do not have this kind of money, you probably should not buy before selling. However, there are other ways that people have accomplished this, so they are worth mentioning. Whether they are an option in today’s market is another story, and will depend heavily on your particular money situation, the lending market and whether the housing market is currently for buyers or sellers.

Home Sale Contingencies

Few sellers are interested in home sale contingency clauses; the chances are very slim a prudent seller will be except one – especially in a seller’s market. By making a contingency offer, you tell a seller that you will buy his or her house for a certain price if and when your home sells.

You put your home up for sale as soon as you decide to do this, and you hope that it will sell quickly so you can buy the new house.

The problem with this arrangement and the reason why so few home sellers accept it is that they lose control of their transaction. A seller has no idea if you are going to do what it takes to sell your home.

They don’t know if you are going to price it correctly, market it right, or even have the best Realtor to sell it. The seller is virtually at your mercy to do what it takes to move onto the next phase of the transaction.

The seller on the other hand without accepting this type of contingency is still able to do what is necessary to get his or her place sold by dropping the price. They certainly know if you are truly serious when you put your home under contract you will be back anyways.

A right of First Refusal

Another typical arrangement you see in some Real Estate contracts is what’s called a right of first refusal. You establish agreed upon terms in a contract and give a specified amount of time that the seller has to provide you to exercise your right to proceed with the transaction should the seller receive another offer.

When the seller gets another offer, you have a short period (typically 24 -48 hours) to purchase the home before the deal dissolves – whether you have sold first or not. Most sellers today do not need to deal in contingency clauses, but it could be worth asking if you have no other choice.

What I need to make painfully clear about this is that the chances are incredibly remote the seller will accept either of these arrangements. When you submit, an offer on a property, a good listing agent representing the seller is going to want to know you can qualify to purchase without selling your existing home.

In fact, one of the requirements I will have any buyer who currently owns a home and puts an offer in on one of my client’s homes is to provide a pre-approval mortgage letter that states exactly that.

The language must be explicit – “the buyer does not need to close on their existing home to make this purchase.” This assures the seller that they do not need to worry about a customer completing a transaction before the acquisition. Otherwise, a buyer could use the mortgage contingency clause in most Real Estate contracts as an escape clause to get their deposits back.

In regards to the right of first refusal unless the seller knows you can qualify to buy his/her home without selling it does not make sense to accept this kind of contract. A ready, willing and able buyer has made an offer on his/her home – why would they want to turn around and wait for someone to say yes or no who doesn’t even qualify to complete the sale?

They would be losing a buyer in hand who has nothing to sell! A few years back while working with a buyer client in Central Florida, even though I had explained to them that the vast majority of home sellers would not accept a contingency sale and they needed to get their home sold first, they didn’t listen.

Unfortunately for them, it took losing a home they wanted before coming to grips they needed to get their home listed and sold first.

After being in the Real Estate business for over 14 years, I find this is something that needs to be explained quite a bit. The are many buyers that think sellers are going to accept their contingency offer. Many have in the back of their mind that this is normal or that they have a very salable home – SORRY it does not work that way!

A seller could care less that YOU think your home is marketable.

Bridge Loan

You may have heard of a bridge loan, but do not bet on being able to get one. Bridge loans allow you to combine the payments of the old and the new home together, making it possible for you to transition from one residence to another. However, the catch with bridge loans is that you need to have considerable finances and excellent credit.

Mostly, you need to be one of the rare few that could afford the dual mortgage payments without the loan. A bridge loan was quite common many years ago, but this type of financing is far rarer nowadays.


Another avenue you can potentially look into when buying a home before you have sold the one you own is renting it out instead of selling. You may be thinking you can just rent out the old house to cover the mortgage while you move into your new home.

While this is an option, it does carry some risks. Renters can lead to severe wear and tear on your property and have little incentive to treat it with love and care you might.

If you are planning on keeping renters there just until you can sell it, you may run into even more problems. Your renters may want to continue living there and might make it unnecessarily difficult to show the house because of this.

Regarding finances, the lender is only going to count a portion of the rent you collect into the equation of whether or not you can qualify to carry both mortgages. Keep this in mind and make sure you do your due diligence before putting in the offer on your dream home.

Buying a Home Before Selling: Do So Only If Financially Wise

Not everyone sells his or her current home before buying a new one. However, the reality of buying a home makes such actions inadvisable for most. You may be able to do it, but make very certain that it is a smart financial move before doing so.

In my experience, most homeowners will opt to get their home sold first and then make an offer on their next place.

By doing so, you remove quite a bit of stress from the equation.

The next worry, of course, will be selling your home before you have found another home you really want to buy. This brings a whole different set of things to keep you up at night including finding temporary housing and a place to store all of your belongings.

These of course are legitimate concerns as nobody likes to think about making a “double move.”

In Real Estate we like to call the decision process for buying before selling or vice versa as the “chicken and egg question.” Essentially which option makes the most sense to do first based upon your life and financial position.

Only you can decide that, but these are the things you need to consider.  As you can see, there are risks and benefits of buying a new property before you have sold your current home. Hopefully, you are now better informed to make the right decision when buying and selling real estate.

Closing Costs In Florida: What to Know

Florida’s population is in an upswing, growing by more than 322,000 new residents in 2018 alone.

Are you looking to join these ranks? 

Whether you’re moving into a new Florida home or you want to sell yours and look elsewhere, you’ll have to go through a real estate closing process, first. 

No matter which side you’re on, this can be an expensive part of the journey.

Today, we’re sharing a detailed overview of what both buyers and sellers can expect to pay to cover Florida closing costs. This way, you can understand your obligation and set your budget.

Ready to learn more? Let’s get started!

Typical Closing Costs for Florida Buyers

Ready to plant your roots deep in the heart of Orlando? Dream of settling down near South Beach?

Before you can drive away with a title in your name, you’ll pay for a few services, first. In most cases, closing costs for Florida home buyers equal between 1% and 3% of the home’s total purchase price. This helps cover the work that key stakeholders, including title companies, appraisers, lenders, and real estate agents must perform to finalize the transaction.

When you apply for a loan with your lender, you’ll receive an estimate of all of these charges, which will vary depending on your specific situation. Let’s take a look at some of the standard charges that most buyers in the state will incur. 

Title Insurance 

As the buyer, you’ll pay for title insurance, which protects you and ensures that there are no issues with the current title in place. This can run you more than $1,000 in some instances. 

Document Recording Costs

Next, you’ll have to pay to change all official documents related to the property from the current owner’s name to yours. You’ll pay these fees, which cover the cost of creating new land records, to the city or county. They are around $225.

Mortgage Fees

In addition, you’ll incur additional costs related to your mortgage. Some of the most common fees in this category include:

  • Origination fees (Vary)
  • Discount points (Vary)
  • Credit report processing ($25)
  • Appraisal fee ($375)
  • Processor fees
  • Survey fees ($300)
  • Flood certification ($15 to $17)

Escrow Fees

Many sellers will work it out with the buyers to split the escrow fees 50/50. You’ll verify this setup in your purchase agreement. Most buyers in Florida pay around $750 in escrow.

Three Types of Taxes Relating to Florida Real Estate

  • First, all properties in Florida are assessed a taxable value and owners pay an annual Florida property tax based on this value (except churches, schools, government entities). This tax is paid to the local municipality
  • Second, if you sell your home, there may be a capital gains tax on the profit realized from the sale. For this scenario, there are federal guidelines set forth for global buyers under the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA).
  • The third tax category only applies to rental properties. If there is net profit on the rental income, there may be a federal tax on the profit generated from renting out a vacation home or other investment property. In addition, for short-term rentals there is a sales tax which is generally charged to the renter and submitted to the local government.

Seller Closing Costs to Expect

Think closing costs are only designated toward the buyer? Not quite. Before you can sell your property and start looking for your next piece of Florida real estate, you’ll sign a few forms and pay a few fees, first. 

While a seller closing cost calculator can give you a more exact estimate, let’s take a look at some of the most common fees you’ll incur.

Title Insurance

This fee covers the work required to ensure that you’re the actual owner of the property and that the title is clean and marketable. If the buyer is taking out a mortgage to buy the property, he’ll also pay a title insurance fee to his lender.

In most cases, this fee will be around 1/3 of 1%. If you sell your home for $180,000, for instance, the seller’s title insurance fee would be about $600.

This percentage increases as the price of your home go down and vice versa. This means the most expensive homes in Florida can see a title insurance fee of 1/5 of 1% or less. If you chose to bundle your policy with the buyer, you can often qualify for discounted rates.

Escrow Fees

You’ll also pay escrow fees as the seller. These will vary depending on which party you’re paying them to. In Florida, you may pay escrow to your title company, the closing service or your real estate attorney.

Real Estate Commission

If you work with a real estate agent to sell your home, you’ll pay that person a commission for the services rendered. This will usually be around 6% of the home’s purchase price. 

You’ll agree to a commission rate in writing before you partner with an agent. 

Recording Fees

You’ll pay for the title change to occur and for the real estate attorney to make the official update to the county record. Most sellers in Florida pay to record a reconveyance of the title, which runs around $150.

If there are other forms that your attorney must process before the sale is complete, such as a road maintenance agreement or quit claim deed, you’ll pay extra for that service, as well. 

Sell Smart and Skip Florida Closing Costs

For both buyers and sellers, Florida closing costs can add up. Whether you’re getting new keys or giving yours up, you don’t want to lose a ton of valuable money in the process.

Want to sell you Florida property and avoid this costly hassle?

That’s where we come in.

SANFORD, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 28, 2019 — Property owners have to deal with countless obstacles while attempting to offer their properties for sale. Discovering a reliable real estate broker can certainly be a challenge for most people. Local multiple listing services (MLS) do not regularly generate the traffic or offers one expects when they list their home for sale.

A large number of aged properties are continuing being listed and unsold in the market for three to four months.

Signs that It’s Time to Consider Selling Your House

House for sale

Are you thinking about selling your home?

Roughly 5.34 million existing homes were sold in 2018 in the United States. And, in addition to those existing homes, 667 thousand newly constructed homes were also sold that year.

While selling your home may prove to be stressful, there are certain indicators that it may be a good idea to sell and move on. If you’re considering the idea of selling your home but aren’t sure if it’s the right time, you’ve come to the right place.

Read on to discover 5 sure signs that it’s time to sell your home.

1. Your family is growing

Before, when you purchased the property, you only considered yourself. You didn’t realize that you were going to marry someone soon and start a new life. Now, you have kids, and it’s not convenient for you to stay in the same house. Therefore, you need to consider selling it so that you can live in a more comfortable place. When your kids are growing, they need their own rooms and won’t be happy sharing rooms anymore.

2. The Neighborhood No Longer Suits Your Needs

If you no longer find the neighborhood in which you live desirable, then it may be time to transition to a new neighborhood.

Let’s take the example of a young couple living in the downcore core but with the desire to raise a family. Perhaps it might be worth it to move outside of the core and relocate to a more residential neighborhood with more variable school options and green spaces.

The sounds of late-night partying might be exactly what you need to think ” It’s time to sell my house“!

3. Low interest rates

When banks offer their loans at a low interest rate, it means that there are several potential buyers out there. Make the most of this opportunity by selling your house. Not only will you sell the place at a reasonable price, but you can also sell it fast. These buyers understand that the rates will not last long, and they need to act quickly.

4. It Makes Sense Financially

Did you get a big break at work? Or, on the other hand, are you living in a home that you feel you can no longer afford?

One of the realities of home ownership is the potential to become house poor. This involves living in a home that requires the bulk of your finances and leaves your wallet with very little after the mortgage payments.

Speak with your financial advisor or mortgage lender to see what you can best afford.

5. It’s a Seller’s Market

A seller’s market involves a real estate market in which home inventory and quality is scare and sellers are able to witness much profit in their sales.

Be sure to listen to the ups and downs of the current market. If the market is beneficial to sellers, it may be worth listing your home for sale to see what sort of prices buyers are willing to pay for your home.

Is It Finally Time to Sell?

If you find yourself relating to the above signs, it might be time to sell your home.

In one’s lifetime, a person in the United States is estimated to relocate approximately 12 times from beginning to end. Whether your family is expanding and you’re searching for something larger, or your needs have changed and you need a home that reflects these changes, people move for a variety of reasons.

Why Real Estate Is Still One Of The Best Ways To Make Money

make the best investment: magnifying glass analyzing a house, with sector newspaper, stats, keys, wallet and mortgage contract

Want to add more money to your income streams but not looking to play the stock market? Then it might be time to consider real estate.  Real estate is the perfect opportunity to accumulate wealth. In fact, real estate is possibly the best way to make money in your local market.

Here’s how and why.

Real Estate means options for income and profit

One of the first things to decide is whether you want an income stream or a profit. Each will put more money in your pocket, but through different means and with different levels of commitment.

  • Rental Income – Rental income can come from both short or long-term strategies. Investors often find properties that are ideally suited for long-term rentals, while many homeowners are exploring short-term rental possibilities such as VRBO. Either way, you will spend money upfront but the cash returns over time make it well worth the initial investment. Not only will you produce an income stream, but you can also enjoy appreciation, equity pay-down and tax benefits as a landlord.
  • Cell tower leases – Another, lesson-known revenue revenue stream possibility is cell tower leasing. As more and more people carry cell phones, more cell towers are needed. Cell tower companies are increasingly turning to property owners to discuss installing and maintaining these towers, sometimes small enough to fit on a rooftop undetected. One word of caution: property owners are not likely to understand the full value of their property and will be sold on the fact that they should use market-standard lease rates. Your land may be worth far more than you think to a tower company. Consult an expert before signing a contract.
  • Fix and flip – There’s a reason HGTV is flooded with shows about flipping houses. Flipping homes ideal for people who are patient enough to seek good deals on homes for sale and can manage contractors.  There are a few companies that buy houses for cash in Central Florida and PHP Houses is the best option if you’re in Central Florida for the purpose of selling them to house flippers.  Taking an existing piece of property and increasing its value, through repairs and staging can mean selling at above market value.  Money is needed initially to get started with this plan but rather than a cash stream over time, you can earn a sizable lump sum that can be used to repeat the same process again.  Just be sure you take the time to read house flipping tips and advice to avoid the most common mistakes first time flippers tend to make.
  • REITs – Technically Real Estate Investment Trusts are playing the stock market. However, they have lower volatility than stocks. REITs can only invest in real estate to produce income and they must distribute at least 90% of income back to shareholders in the form of dividends. In addition to rich dividends, REITs offer diverse exposure to real estate assets and inherent tax advantages.  As with flipping, it’s important to take the time to investigate before jumping but here are 3 available REIT options currently recommended.

The best part about building wealth with real estate is that virtually anyone can do it. Depending on the amount of time and initial investment you wish to spend, the possibilities are endless and the profits sizable.  With proper research and education, real estate can truly be one of the best ways to make money.

8 Choices To Take Into Account When Your Residential Property Isn’t Selling

You choose you want to offer for sale your home. You put your home on the market and wait for the offers to start rolling in. Now you’re starting to worry that no one is going to buy your home, which stops all your plans dead in their tracks.

Up The Curb Appeal
Often everything looks good on paper however then when a purchaser drives past the house to inspect it out they’re let down by reality. Could the home use a paint task? It may not be what you ‘d do but it’s not about you anymore, it’s about putting the home in the best possible light (pun intended) for the purchaser.

Should You Stage?
Like we stated, it’s no longer about what you believe is finest for the home, it’s about what the buyer believes is best. The more they can see themselves in your house, the more likely it is to really become their home.

Lease While You Wait.
If the months are beginning to accumulate while you wait for a buyer, you need to consider things like an financial investment. Each month, you lose prospective cash that your house could have generated.
