BEND – It’s hard to believe that September is here once again and 2014 is quickly coming to a close.

The good thing for buyers and sellers is that there’s still plenty of time to buy or sell a home in Bend especially if you follow these simple tips.

Sellers: Get Started With Selling Now

One of the biggest problems which most sellers face is waiting for the perfect time to sell their homes and most Real Estate agents will tell you that the “perfect time” will never come that’s why any seller who wants to sell their home should jump-start the home sales process by getting their home ready for sale by doing the following.

  • De-clutter the home.
  • Clean closets, shelves and furnishings which might have not been cleaned in some time.
  • Make repairs to areas of the home which may have been neglected.

Buyers: Make Sure You’re Credit Ready Now

Buying a home is one of the most important things you will ever do and that’s why you should also make sure your credit score is ready to buy a home too because, a lower credit score (700 or lower) means you will be able to borrow less money than you originally expected.

If you think your credit report by be inaccurate you shouldn’t hesitate to pull your 3-in-one credit report and check it because, removing those negative items means you will be able to qualify for a bigger mortgage loan and ultimately purchase the home you deserve.
