Home Seller’s Tips

Fall is typically a quiet time on Maui. There are less visitors on island and the real estate market slows down a little. As we approach the holidays, we get closer to the peak season for off island visitors. If you are thinking about selling your home, it makes sense to put it on the market during peak visitor season when there are more potential buyers. If you are going to put your home on the market you may want to consider the following tips from our broker Jim Sanders that can help facilitate a timely and smoth transactions.

Inspections.
99.9% of buyer’s get a home inspector to review property condition. Undisclosed/undiscovered or overlooked defects could cause cancellation of escrow or pose a liability for the seller. This can result in a waste of time and confusion. A solution is to have a disclosure inspection done by a home inspector. You and the buyer will know up front what issues exist.

Surveys.
If your property has not been surveyed in some time, you may want to consider a survey prior to putting your home on the market. This will catch any problematic encroachments in advance. This is a great way for you to have more time to remove potential deal killers.
