Selling a house on your own is like explaining the solar system to a child. You think you can handle it, but as soon as a difficult question comes your way, you realize how much you don’t know.

Here are examples of questions that could arise when trying to sell your home. Do you know …

  • Whether you have to disclose that your roof leaked if you’ve fixed it?
  • How a termination option works?
  • How to determine the highest price for your home without overpricing it?
  • If there’s a time limit for responding to a buyer’s offer?
  • Whether you must respond to buyers’ offers in a particular order?
  • How to know if a prospective buyer can actually qualify for a loan to purchase your home?
  • Who gets to choose the title company?
  • How to handle the sale if the buyer is making it contingent on the sale of her existing home?
  • Whether the refrigerator, drapes, wall-mounted TV, and chandelier are considered part of the sale?
  • What to do if the buyer proposes an amendment to the contract you already agreed upon?
  • Whether you can back out of the contract if a better offer comes along?
  • When you have to get a new survey and who pays it?
  • What to do if the survey shows that your neighbor’s fence is on your property?
  • What happens if an inspection turns up termite damage?
