This depends on the current condition of the kitchen. A partially upgrade may be an option as cabinet refacing or new countertops. You should interview a few Realtors for listing your home and get their opinions.... more
Hi Enoch. It is completely understandable to have many questions and concerns about selling or renting your home. I agree with Liza about determining your friends commitment to buying or selling your house. If they are not sure I would highly recommend contacting an agent to set up an interview about listing your property.
Agents will provide you with a comparative market analysis to help you determine a list price for your home.
Agents can also rent your property if you decide you don't want to sell at this point.
Any dedicated agent will be there to answer your questions and help guide you through this process ultimately helping you sell your home for top dollar.
As a local listing agent I believe professional realtors bring a tremendous amount of value to any real estate transaction.
Experienced agents have first hand market knowledge and when representing you we utilize that knowledge to properly position your home to sell at the highest possible price.
For example this is what I offer my sellers...
Top-notch marketing and proven selling systems.
Fast and professional response to all leads.
Listing on the MLS & a variety of other top real estate sites.
Price guidance according to market data and recent sales.
Advice on Home staging and tips to get your home show ready.
Knowledge of required disclosures and legal documents.
Buyer feedback and private showings.
Confirmation of potential buyer qualifications.
Ability to Counter offer and negotiation expertise.
And so much more.
I believe communication is key and when you work with right agent they can make this a rewarding experience.
I would love to meet & chat to learn more about your specific needs.
Feel free to contact me at any time.
My direct line is (860)384-4992

Only if it came in low and you are attempting to renegotiate. Appraisals are opinions of value, not necessarily a fact. If an appraiser uses poor comparable sales or makes mistakes which an agent can demonstrate, the value can be disputed and corrected.
If your value is at or over the purchase price, you don't have to share anything. You paid for the appraisal and it's your property.... more
The buyer I assume had a qualified inspector go through the home as part of the contingencies. In the contract or offer, there are usually time frames for completing each contingency. Those time frames have long since past. While they can still back out of the deal, your attorney would probably advise you that the buyers' deposit or binder would be at risk if you have lived up to all your contractual obligations.... more
In a current transaction I had with a client (she was a buyer), she switched attorneys "midstream" because her attorney was unresponsive. She was much happier with her second choice and the closing went smoothly as a result. Now, I'm not suggesting that you switch attorneys if you are happy. However, your attorney is working for you and you will be paying him or her for their services at your closing. If he or she is unreachable, then you are not getting the service that you paid for. Most real estate attorneys expect to be contacted often by their clients. My suggestion would be to contact 1 or 2 other attorneys in the area and get their advice, and possibly switch if necessary. Good luck!... more
