Jim Garcia - Castle Rock Homes answered:
Clean and a well maintained look sells. Buyers will examine the property much more than you probably will since you've been living there for a long time. Walk the house and examine it like you were Buying it yourself. On the outside, are there birds nests in vents, bee honeycombs lodged in a soffit, is the front door clean without spider webs, trees/bushes cut back so a Buyer can proudly walk into their new home when they buy? Walk the interior the same way to clean up any little items that might prevent a Buyer from writing an offer. This can all be done with some good old fashioned "Elbow Grease" and very inexpensively. Good luck

Kristina Carlson answered:
The summer is going to be a peak season for buyers but Anchorage has a competitive market in the winter time as well. Since Anchorage is a transient city, there are always people coming and going no matter what time of year. There are transplants coming from all over the world to work in the exciting fields that Alaska has to offer.

The main downside to selling in the winter is the buyers are not able to see the landscaping of the home which can add a lot of value. Buyers can also be hesitant to pull the trigger as the roof and some other exterior items are not accessible. I would recommend that if you are planning on selling in the winter, keep some landscaping pictures on hand so that the buyer can see all of the value in your home.

If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed, you can however try blogging about the property; if and when you do list with an agent, he/she can post it for you, ask; or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site. ... more

You can absolutely put your home up for sale and have it be contingent upon your move, and as Erica mentioned, it is just a matter of finding a buyer who is agreeable to your terms. I am in the middle of a transaction right now where the Seller is leaving state at the end of May, but we are Closing on the property next week and have an Occupancy Agreement in place with prorated rent until the day the Seller vacates the property, at which point possession will be given to the Buyer. So, it is definitely doable! Please feel free to give me a call - I would be happy to help you with this as I have experience with situations such as yours. (907)223-7966 ... more

Erica Thynes answered:
My understanding is the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 states single taxpayers can exclude up to $250,000 in profits on their home's sale. Married couples (file jointly) can exclude $500,000 from their taxable income. You do not have to buy a replacement home, and your age is not factored. After you take the exclusion, you could buy a less expensive home or even rent one. The IRS will let you use the exclusion each time you sell your primary residence IF 1. you have owned and used the home as your primary residence for at least two out of the previous five years, and 2. you haven't used the exclusion during the preceding two years. So if you net, $500,000 or less and you file jointly, you won't be taxed. For example, you net $600,000 on the sale of the house, you will be taxed on the $100,000 you profit due to the $500,000 exclusion. Please confirm with your accountant. ... more

Trulia only allows MLS listed properties on their site. I assist FSBO owners on a routine basis here in Kodiak. At times I will assist with a facilitation, but typically they end up listing with me. A great free place to post your FSBO listing in Kodiak is on Facebook at "Kodiak Real Estate One Stop" https://www.facebook.com/groups/422035847828380/. You can view details of what a facilitation encompasses on my website at http://kodiak1realty.com/for-sale-by-owner/. Have a great day, good luck and if I may provide any assistance feel free to call or text me anytime at (907) 942-7201, email at mattzytkowicz@kodiak1realty.com or message me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MattZytkowiczRealtorWithAlaskaOneRealty ... more

Katrina Benton answered:
You may be overlooking one of the most important benefits of working with a real estate professional.

A vast majority of the people who visit "for sale by owner" homes are casual lookers, unqualified prospects, bargain hunters, and thieves.

Letting strangers into your home without an agent running interference can put not only your property as risk, but your family members as well.

If you are trying to sell your home yourself, you have no way to screen prospects. I do.

As an experienced real estate professional, I can spare you the headaches that go with selling a home, including screening prospective buyers.

Call me 907-865-6469, and take the risk out of selling your home - and get you the best price in the least amount of time.

Thanks!

Katrina
