When most people think about local houses for sale, they usually remember just how stressful buying a house can really be. What they don’t know, though, is that the real estate industry can actually be quite fascinating. Here are just a few interesting factoids about homes for sale.
The Potential Buyers of Some Houses For Sale Legally Need to Be Told If They’re Haunted.
If you live in New York State and want to buy a home for sale locally, the seller legally has to tell you if the property is haunted. Of course, there’s no real way to tell if houses for sale are haunted, but if it’s believed to be, the seller has to disclose that fact.
Selling Houses Takes a Lot Longer Than Most People Think.
It takes a lot longer than many people might think to be done with houses for sale. Think about it. In order to make houses for sale more attractive to buyers, sellers usually have to fix up and renovate them. Most projects take two to six months. Then once they’re finally on the market, it can take even longer to get a deal to close. In a slow market, closing might take as long as nine months. Luckily, there are cash buyers of real estate out there that can buy your house as is.
More Elderly People Move Each Year Than You Might Suspect.
There are about 40.3 million people over the age of 65 living in the United States right now. About 7% of them move each year. While that might not sound like much, it comes out to more than 2.82 million! That’s more than four times the population of Wyoming. Could you imagine the entire Cowboy State putting all of its houses for sale four times over?
