Prospective home buyers and anyone else attending an open house or when showing your home will always have questions. When you hire an agent, you will complete a Sellers Disclosure document that will describe what you do and don't know about the homes condition.
Your real estate agent needs to know everything reasonably possible about the condition of your home, and other items such as the property's tax and Home owner's association fees, which you must disclose to buyers. If you are showing the house by yourself, here are some of the questions asked besides the property's tax and HOA fees.
Buyers will ask questions regardless of whether the information is in the listing description or not. Sometimes this is to catch the seller's reaction to the question and judge the answer to be true or false. Such questions include the average cost of providing electricity. If the electricity bill is fixed and is exceptionally high, it might shift the buyer's decision. If the electricity cost and other utility bills are not fixed, affirm the buyer that bills vary with a specific family's consumption, and they might pay lower depending on their family size.
The structural integrity of the house will also be questioned. Buyers will ask about the roof age and state, floor, walls, and pillars condition, and if any repairs have been recently done on the home. Insect and rodent invasion will also be questioned by the seller. This is because fixing such issues can be expensive, depending on the condition. Add to the answers when you had the home treated as an added assurance to the buyer.
If the home comes with appliances, the buyer will ask about a home warranty that covers the appliances. The buyer will ask this question regardless of whether the house comes with the appliances or not. If the appliances are insured, the buyer will want to buy the home with the appliances.
The buyer will ask why you are selling the house and ask about the neighbors. This is geared towards the buyer protecting themselves from nosy neighbors or any other bad character traits that the neighbors have.
When all things check out in the buyer's preferences, they will ask about the price and whether there is room for price negotiations. If you are looking for a specific amount for your home, politely inform the buyer that very little can be negotiated on the price. This ensures that no time is wasted for both parties.
