  1. Remove clutter and clear off counters. Throw out stacks of newspapers and magazines and stow away most of your small decorative items. Put excess furniture in storage, and remove out-of-season clothing items that are cramping closet space.
  2. Wash your windows and screens. This will help get more light into the interior of the home.
  3. Keep everything extra clean. Wash fingerprints from light switch plates, mop and wax floors, and clean the stove and refrigerator. Polish your doorknobs and address numbers. A clean house will make a strong first impression and send a message to buyers that the home has been well-cared for. It's worth hiring a cleaning service if you can afford it.
  4. Get rid of smells. Clean carpeting and drapes to eliminate cooking odors, smoke, and pet smells. Open the windows to air out the house.
  5. Brighten your rooms. Put higher wattage bulbs in light fixtures to brighten up rooms and basements. Replace any burned-out bulbs in closets. Clean the walls, or better yet, brush on a fresh coat of neutral color paint.
  6. Don't disregard minor repairs. Small problems such as sticky doors, torn screens, cracked caulking, or a dripping faucet may seem trivial, but they'll give buyers the impression that the house isn't well maintained.
  7. Tidy your yard. Cut the grass, rake the leaves, add new mulch, trim the bushes, edge the walkways, and clean the gutters. For added curb appeal, place a pot of bright flowers near the entryway.
  8. Patch holes. Repair any holes in your driveway and reapply sealant, if applicable.
  9. Add a touch of color in the living room. A colored afghan or throw on the couch will jazz up a dull room. Buy new accent pillows for the sofa.
  10. Buy a flowering plant and put it near a window you pass by frequently.
  11. Make a centerpiece for your tables. Use brightly colored fruit or flowers.
  12. Set the scene. Set the table with fancy dishes and candles, and create other vignettes throughout the home to help buyers picture living there. For example, in the basement you might display a chess game in process.
  13. Replace heavy curtains with sheer ones that let in more light. Show off the view if you have one.
  14. Accentuate the fireplace. Lay fresh logs in the fireplace or put a basket of flowers there if it's not in use.
  15. Make the bathrooms feel luxurious. Put away those old towels and toothbrushes. When buyers enter your bathroom, they should feel pampered. Add a new shower curtain, new towels, and fancy guest soaps. Make sure your personal toiletry items are out of site.
  16. Send your pets to a neighbor or take them outside. If that's not possible, crate them or confine them to one room (ideally the basement), and let the real estate practitioner know where they'll be to eliminate surprises.
  17. Lock up valuables, jewelry and money. While a real estate salesperson will be on site during the showing or open house, it's impossible to watch everyone all the time.
  18. Leave your home. It's usually best if the sellers are not home. It's awkward for prospective buyers to look in your closet and express their opinions of your home with you there.

A reverse mortgage is a way for clients 62 or older to unlock the equity in their home turning it into tax free cash without a mortgage payment. (Borrowers are responsible for annual property taxes and insurance.)

 

Benefits of a HECM loan for your client

A HECM loan is an effective way to convert home equity into cash liquidity for their needs. Other benefits of getting a HECM loan include:

  • They continue to live in and own their home without having to make a mortgage payment
  • Obtain tax free money for home repairs or improvements, property taxes and insurance, monthly proceeds to improve and more
  • Supplemental retirement income allowing them to delay drawing from portfolio assets
  • Cover medical expenses
  • Improve legacy planning

 

How can I improve my clients retirement security by including a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage into their overall planning strategy?

  • Replace cash reserves
  • Delay social security payouts until age 70
  • Potentially reduce tax liability with Tax-free loan proceeds
  • Postpone drawing down retirement assets giving them time to grow
  • Eliminate mortgage payments thereby increasing purchasing power
  • Does not effect traditional governmental retirement benefits (Social Security and Medicare)
