Keep Your Champaign - Urbana Home Sale from Falling Apart

Finding a buyer for your home in Champaign - Urbana is just the beginning of the selling process. Now you need to make sure you keep that buyer happy until the sale closes. Making any one of these mistakes below could cost you the deal.

Here are some mistakes to avoid to make sure you close the deal.

Mistake #1: Ignore Contingencies

If there's a contingency on the contract that requires you to take care of an issue before the sale, make sure you take care of it. And don't go cheap on the repair and expect it to go unnoticed. Do it right and avoid losing the sale.

Mistake #2: Don’t Bother to Fix Things That Break

Make sure your home for sale is in good repair. If something breaks that was working when the buyer made their offer, they could notice it during the pre-closing walk-through. If the buyer thinks you aren't maintaining your home, it could end the deal.

Mistake #3: Get Lax About Deadlines

Deadlines are deadlines. Make sure you stick to all the deadlines.

Mistake #4: Refuse to Negotiate Any Further

After you negotiate a price, it's not uncommon for problems to be found during inspections that need to be fixed. Or the appraisal may be below what the offer is. You need to be able to negotiate further when issues arise, or the buyers may back out.

Mistake #5: Hide Liens from Buyers

If you have a lien on your home or have unpaid HOA fees, the buyer will find out during the title search. Those fees must be paid off for the deal to close. You could have the buyers pay those fees as part of the deal if you can't pay them. But if they aren't paid, the sale won't happen.
