Prepare for Home Inspection - Sell a Home - JYB Realty

So you've listed your home, found a buyer, and accepted an offer. Congratulations! You're almost closing the sale, but you still have to make it through the home inspection before you start packing. The home inspection process can be nerve-racking for a seller. You don't want the deal to fall through, be stuck with the cost of major repairs, or lower the price to account for repairs. With that in mind, it's important to show your home in the best possible light and have the inspection go as smoothly as possible. Our real estate agents provide tips for how you can get ready for a home inspection.

  • Work With Your Real Estate Agent
    Depending on how many houses you've sold before, you may have little to no experience with home inspection preparations and negotiations. Now is the time to trust your agent to help you navigate the process. Your real estate agent can explain how the home inspection works, help you understand the types of home maintenance problems that are common in your area, develop a plan for repair requests, determine whether you're in a seller's or buyer's market, and help you with negotiations based on the findings.

Decorate for Fall - Homeowner Tips - JYB Realty

As the days get shorter and the air gets crisper, it's time to start thinking about how to decorate your front porch for fall. Atlanta homes for sale will get more attention when they have a cozy, lived-in look. Add instant curb appeal by following these tips for the perfect, autumn-ready front porch.

  • Create a Cozy Place to Sit
    If you have the space, create a cozy place to sit and sip on your morning coffee while you enjoy crisp autumn mornings. Set up a bench or a couple of chairs, depending on the size of your porch, and don't forget to make the area weather-proof so that you can enjoy your porch all autumn long. Partially enclosing the porch with windows or screens will let light in while acting as a windbreak, or you can hang insulated curtains to help keep the area comfortable. Throw pillows and blankets add the finishing touches to a cozy fall retreat.
