Frequently-asked Questions About Selling Your Home.

What is the first step in selling my home?

Your first step should be to contact Culbert Realty. One of our experienced real estate agents will come to your home and go over your property with an eye toward what it might sell for in today’s market and what you might need to do to help increase the value before it’s listed.

Should I have my house inspected?

Typically, you do not need to have your house inspected. However, a home inspection may give you an edge in selling your property.

There may be required inspections on some of your property features that the Iron Range experts at Culbert Realty can warn you about. For example, if you want to sell a rural home in St. Louis County, you must have a septic system inspection. Check with us for any additional area regulations.

Why is market value different from assessed value?

Market value is the amount for which a buyer is willing to pay for a property and a seller is willing to accept for it. The assessed value is determined by government tax assessors to decide how much a homeowner can expect to pay in property taxes.

Do I need an appraisal?

You do not need a formal appraisal. We can give you a market value by comparing recent area sales to your home. Together we will decide what is the best price for which to list it.

What do I need to get my home ready for sale?

You want potential buyers to have a positive impression and not be distracted by anything when walking through your home. We suggest you clean, declutter, organize your closets and, where possible, depersonalize your home so that buyers can see themselves living there. On the outside, make sure your lawn is cleaned up. Mow if it’s summer. Shovel if it’s winter. You should also consider updating any systems that are badly out of date, like electrical.

We just inherited a house. Now what do we do?

Inheriting a house can trigger financial and emotional issues. There are potential deed and probate issues as well as decisions to be made about the final dispensation of the property. If you choose to sell, Culbert Realty can help you navigate through the process and the paperwork. Call us when you’re ready!
