Selling your Asheville North Carolina home is never a simple process. But it can be especially difficult if you have to sell your Asheville house fast. In this article, we will take a look at the most important three questions to ask when selling your Asheville home. Every situation is different but these questions need to be answered regardless of when, how or why you are selling your Asheville house.
Question#1: What is your timeline?
When do you need to sell and when do you want to sell are two different questions. An ideal timeline is not always a realistic timeline. There are different variables that are going to effect the timeline on the sale of your home. Have you taken into account the school calendar? Are you waiting to submit an offer on another house? Are you aware of what the realistic timeline is to sell?
As of October 31, 2016 in Asheville homes that are listed between $0 and $500k are taking an average of 44 days to sell. Is that a timeline that works for you? Depending when you are reading this article it would be smart to reach out to an agent or contact us if you want to know what the average days on market are today.
Understanding a realistic timeline in regards to the sale of your home is extremely important so you can have the proper expectations going into the sales process. Unrealistic expectations can be the cause for frustration down the road.
Question #2: How much do you want to spend?
Home ownership costs money! Not only while you own your home but also when you go to sell your Asheville home. It is very common to forget about the hidden costs that come with selling a house. Costs can include but are not limited to; closing costs (attorney fees & taxes), agent commissions, repairs, and concessions. Each of these expenses takes money of your pocket, if you are not prepared for theses expenses it can come as a ugly surprise how much it can cost to sell your home.
If you are not excited about the proposition of hidden costs then you will want to look for an offer that includes closing costs, taxes, no commissions, no repairs, and no concessions. If that is of interest to you then feel free to call us at 828-222-6443 to get a fast-fair offer on your house, as-is condition, no commissions, and we can pay closing costs and taxes.

Question #3: What is your bottom dollar?
Knowing what your bottom dollar is arguable the most important of the three questions to ask when you selling your Asheville home. Without knowing what your bottom number is it puts you at a disadvantage when negotiating with a potential buyer. Consider how much money if any you are going to spend selling the house (see question #2). The other important variable is to get your payoff statement from your bank. Make sure that when you request your you have a payoff date, typically 30 days from the date of the request. If you request your statement on December 1st it will typically only be valid through December 31st. Know your numbers so that you are able to make an educated decision when it comes to selling.
Now that you have answered all of the above questions it is time to make a decision on how you are going to sell. Are you going to sell by working with an agent and listing it on the MLS or are you going to FSBO (For Sale By Owner). The simplest and easiest way to sell is to work with an investor who can pay cash and is willing to but your property in as-is condition. If you want a quick and effective sale so you can walk away… we can help.
