Edmonton Home Sale: Neighbors Effect

August 2nd, 2017 by findmyhouse

Edmonton Homes For Sale MLS Listings

When buyers are looking for an Edmonton house factors like location, kitchen, square footage and number of bedrooms and bathrooms are important. But there are some other less obvious things which can make or break a sale of an Edmonton house and one of them is your so called neighbors.

Even if your Edmonton home is in perfect condition, you neighbors could affect the value of your Edmonton property.

Here are some ways which your neighbors can affect your Edmonton home sale.

Neigborhood Foreclosure

Foreclosure in your neighborhood is a bad sign for homes on the market. It may not deter first-time buyers who are looking for a starter home but more experience buyers may see it as a sign of an awful neighborhood which can cause the buyers to past right by your Edmonton property.

Full Volume

Another prospect of homebuyers is the tranquillity of a neighborhood. Whether there is a teenager’s party or just loud music being heard across the street as a potential buyer visits your Edmonton house, it can destroy the calm environment that you are portraying.

Smoking

A simple turn-off for potential buyers is next-door smokers. Secondhand smoke can pass through open windows which in the process fouling the indoor air.

Dogs

An aggressive dog or just any dog next door can be a real dilemma for sellers especially when dealing with parents with young kids. Safety is one of the top priorities of families in search for an Edmonton house, dogs can compromise that.

Forgotten Paint

There is that one house in every neighborhood that hasn’t tasted a fresh coat of paint in decades. This eyesore may affect your sale especially if it’s one of your immediate neighbors.  Buyers may think twice before making a deal.

Rule Breakers

Troublesome neighbors are hard to be dealt with especially the rebellious ones. If you live in a subdivision that requires citizens to abide by the rules and regulation of the area then neighbors who violate these rules are a big turn-off which in turn makes your potential buyers look elsewhere.

Edmonton Homes For Sale MLS Listings

In life we want the best for our family as we want it for ourselves, buying and renting is no exception.

Is buying a house really the better choice than renting or the other way round?

Which will you choose?

Down Payment

Buying:

The accustomed down payment for a house is 20% of the acquirement value.

Renting:

It is commonly know when renting a property requires a deposit equivalent to the first and last month’s rent.

Fixed Rate

Buying:

For as long as it takes to pay off the house, a fixed-rate mortgage lets homeowners know what exactly their monthly dues will be.

Renting:

Landlords can change the rate at the end of a leasing period when renting a property.

Taxes

Buying:

Property taxes on a home can be quite the headache.

Renting:

A renter does not have to deal paying property taxes separately.

Maintenance

Buying:

It’s your house so taking care of it when problems appear is your responsibility.

Renting:

Renters typically doesn’t deal with any problematic issues regarding the well-being of the house however they are obligated to report when something goes wrong to their landlord.

Flexibility

Buying:

You cannot easily part with a home. It may take months or even years to sell and by then you may be selling at a loss.

Renting:

Renters don’t have money bounded at their rented property so they have more flexibility of leaving a place at the end of a lease.

Everyone has the choice to buy or rent an Edmonton property it all depends on the circumstances of the person. Buying an Edmonton home is a long term investment which may take years for the effect to be felt but if you are thinking of settling down then buying is a great option but if you are on the move regularly then renting is the best for you.

Edmonton Homes For Sale MLS Listings

The key in quickly selling your Edmonton home and getting your asking price is accomplishing a successful staging. From cleaning to styling, there are many different approaches you can try.

Here are some staging tips you can try to make your Edmonton house sell faster.

Curb Appeal Boost

You might have heard this for quite some time and with good reason. Make sure your Edmonton home is ready to welcome onlookers because potential Edmonton buyers thinking to look at your Edmonton home will do a quick drive-by first, and often decide if it’s worth their time to look inside.

Do luring tactics like power wash siding and walkways, wash front windows, plant fresh greenery and flowers, repaint the porch floor if needed, etc. You may never know who may be looking at your Edmonton home.

Clean Edmonton House

Whether it’s your own elbow grease or you hire a professional cleaner, a clean Edmonton house always attracts more Edmonton buyers.

Clutter Away

All clutters must go if you’re serious with staging your Edmonton home, end of story.

Space

With the clutters managed, you can now showcase more of the space of your Edmonton property which entices Edmonton buyers. The more space you have, the more attracting your Edmonton house is.

Use Extra Rooms Intelligently

If you have a room which has been a dumping ground for oddities then it’s better to clear that room up. When a potential buyer sees that extra room, he or she can see maybe an office space or an extra room for the kids. Which might be a crucial piece in whether to buy the Edmonton property or not.

Seasonal Thinker

Take advantage of the seasons when staging your Edmonton home. In summer make sure your garden is beautifully modelled. Clean and assured that the pools and fire pit are ready to be use. While in autumn and winter make use of the cozy atmosphere by building a fire in the fireplace, etc.

Before you put your Edmonton house on the market make sure you have done every preparation you can think of so that when the time comes for you to sell your Edmonton home, the selling process will be fast and less likely for you to experience any bumps as the journey goes.
