Ask Dave

House Sale

Dave tells Carol the top things that can be controlled that will help her son sell his home.

QUESTION: Carol’s son took a job as a firefighter in New York and is selling his home in Cleveland. What points does Dave have for selling the house?

ANSWER: The things that you can control are price and condition, and the second is a big one. Treat the house like a retail, model home in a new subdivision. Make it clean and well-maintained. Make sure the house is clean and deodorized inside. Do those things, think like a retailer and cut the price.
