What Questions Do You Need To Ask a Seller before Buying a Home?

Building your own home is possibly the largest investment you can make. You will spend a lot of time searching for the perfect house and place and by the time you find one to buy, you will have already known a lot about the house. Talking to the sellers and asking them questions will help you make the right decision.

For the buyers who need to buy homes in Bergenfield in Bergen County, there are a number of questions you need to ask the sellers so that you can end up getting a good home in a better place. Asking these questions will help you acquire a good home and make sure you will not regret in the future.

  1. Why are you selling the house?

There are many reasons that make people move from one place to another. For example, people move due to job relocation, retirement or death of a spouse. Asking this can be helpful in determining how much room there is for negotiating the price of the home. The seller may be willing to accept a lower offer depending on the reasons for them wanting to move from the home. He might want to get out of the home faster or might have no hurry at all.

  1. What is included in the sale of the house?34134219225_3e9b0ca1cd_b

When you are in doubt and want to avoid disappointments, ask the seller what is included in the sale and get it done in writing. All the things that are permanently attached to the home like cabinets and window blinds are included in the home sale. Pay close attention to items such as outdoor play equipment such as shades and make sure they are not missing.

  1. Are there problems in the house?

The disclosure statements inform the potential buyers about the condition of the home. These statements will also help to protect sellers from any future legal action that the buyers can take if problems arise. When you ask about any problems with the home, you will definitely be better off in the future. It is always to know of any potential problems with the house before you make a purchase.  

  1. How old is the house?

Before buying a house, you need to ask about the condition of the key components of the house. This is to prepare you to face any big expenses. These key components include the heating and cooling systems, appliances, water heater, plumbing and electrical systems. Another one is the roof. Newer roofs may last from 15 to 50 years. If its old that is from 15 years, be ready to face a big expense in the future.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business again.read more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair transaction.read more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
