If you’re in the market to buy a home, one of the easiest ways to do it is to look for homes that are move-in ready. Out of all the options that exist for buying real estate, buying a house that’s ready for you is a no-brainer. 


The problem for many real estate agents who are helping buyers find homes is that buyers aren’t sure what “move-in ready means. It means something different for everyone. Below, we’ll discuss some misconceptions and truths about move-in ready homes. 


Move-In Ready Doesn’t Have To Be New


New construction homes are indeed move-in ready, but there are a few roadblocks to buying new construction homes. First, these homes take some time to get. Many times,  buyers are purchasing them and waiting months to move in. There’s also less of a selection of locations. Most new construction homes can be found in the same area because that’s where the land is. New construction is certainly an option for people who have the time to wait to move into a new home. 


There are plenty of existing homes that may not need much work and have been constructed in recent years. You may not have been able to pick the colors on the walls or the types of countertops you have, but the house certainly isn’t falling apart. 


Move-In Ready Could Mean There’s A Little Work


Buying a fixer-upper is worlds different from purchasing a home that’s ready for you to live. Some move-in ready homes could use some work. The work involved is only cosmetic. The walls may need some painting or the house may need some cleaning up, but everything that needs to be done will be minimal. These are the types of projects that will be involved in buying a home that’s move-in ready.


The Benefits Of A Move-In Ready Home


You can enjoy the home right away

Things like appliances and other features in the house will be newer

The home will be in a sought after location

Sellers and builders will be motivated 


It's easy to enjoy the home and find newer features in a move-in ready home. New constructions homes will have the latest in everything from appliances to security. The owner will have upgraded homes that are ready to move to. More modern homes also tend to be in desirable locations. All of this not only equates to better living conditions for you an your family but better value when you sell the home at a later date.

Let's face it – the thought of entering the home selling market can be stressful, even if you don't plan to put your house on the market for several weeks or months. However, there are many simple ways to ensure you can enjoy a fun, exciting and successful home selling journey.

Now, let's take a look at three tips that you can use to kick off an unforgettable home selling journey.

1. Examine Your Home's Interior and Exterior

How will a potential homebuyer view your residence when he or she sees it for the first time? This is a question that you'll want to consider closely, as a homebuyer's first impression of your residence may dictate whether he or she moves forward with an offer.

Take a close look at your house's interior and exterior from a homebuyer's perspective. If home improvements are necessary, now may be the ideal time to complete these tasks. That way, you can enhance your house's interior and exterior before you add your residence to the real estate market.

Also, a home appraisal may help you identify problem areas with your residence. This appraisal enables a property inspector to examine your residence from top to bottom and can help you better understand your house's strengths and weaknesses.

2. Declutter Your Residence

Unfortunately, clutter can accumulate in a home over an extended period of time. But if you start decluttering your home today, you may be able to avoid the stress of cleaning out your residence as you get closer to adding your home to the housing market.

To declutter effectively, consider items that you need to keep and store them safely. Then, take the items that you no longer require and consider all of your options to get rid of them quickly and safely.

In many instances, you can sell excess items or donate them to charity. Or, you can always offer these items to family members and friends as well.

3. Meet with a Real Estate Agent

What does it take to get your house ready for the real estate market? Meet with a real estate agent, and you can learn everything you'll need to know about selling a house.

A real estate agent understands the ins and outs of the real estate market. As such, he or she can answer any questions that you may have about the home selling journey and help you plan accordingly.

In addition, after you list your residence, your real estate agent will streamline the home selling cycle. This housing market professional will set up home showings and open houses, promote your residence to large groups of potential buyers and much more. By doing so, your real estate agent will do everything possible to help you maximize the value of your residence.

When it comes to getting ready to sell your home, there is no need to worry. Instead, use the aforementioned tips, and you'll be able to enjoy a memorable home selling journey.
