Whether you are in the business of real estate selling or if you are simply looking to sell your home, there are several things to consider. Selling a luxury home is not an easy task. There are many things to check and sort out before giving the ownership to another person. Luxury homes are not cheap to construct. A difference between a normal house and a luxury home is that there are many component of the house made with a lot of care and precision. Parts like swimming pools, interior decorations and other components make it very costly to build. So when selling you need to consider the following.
Is it the right price?
Most of the time the housing market is not very steady, so this affects the housing price for a luxury home as well. When setting the price for a house, you need to make sure you cross check it with several real estate agents to make sure you have got the right price and the highest price possible. If you have a pool in the property you need to make sure you have gotten the pool safety certificate and that you have accounted the fees for these in the selling price. Also if you are selling with furniture these needs to be properly accounted for.
Have you got all documentation right?
This is a crucial point when selling a luxury house. You need to make sure all your property deeds and other documentation are in order. Even the things like a pool safety certificate are important. For example if your property is in your fathers or mothers name you need to get them transferred to your name if this is a family inheritance. Before putting the house up for sale, you need to get these sorted. Also if there are any outstanding mortgages and other loans on the property they need to be cleared, or informed to the buyers. Also if you have any warranties for the items in the house like appliances these needs to be shown and given to the buyers too, so you need to find all these and sort them out before selling.
The cost of maintenance
Most of the time first time house buyers do not have a clue of the maintenance cost of a luxury house. Especially if it has a pool the cost of maintenance can be very high. Before selling the house you need to mention these costs to the buyers. Because the cost of maintenance of an apartment is different from a luxury house, so it is a polite thing that you tell them the expenses they will have to bare to maintain the house. For example there are chorus like cleaning or inspecting the pool, cleaning the houses, getting the certificates, putting up fences etc. This cost needs to inform. So the new buyers cannot come back later and tell that you didn’t mention these.
