How To Save Money When Selling Your Home

Q. I'm selling my home by owner. Do you have any tips on how to save money?

A. There are little known secrets in the real estate industry that can save hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars when selling a home. For example, try using an existing survey and elevation certificate rather than paying for a new one. Ask your closing attorney for a reissue credit on your title insurance if you qualify. Also, don't forget to file for tax portability if you're selling a Florida homesteaded property to buy another. And if the home you're selling is vacant. shutoff non-essential appliances such as the water heater, water softener, and raise your thermostat. Finally, make sure your closing is completed and your current mortgage is paid off before the 1st of the month to avoid paying accrued interest.  For more information on other money saving tips, please contact me.
