You've decided to sell your home on West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle and have begun prepping the property to appeal to Jefferson and Berkeley County homebuyers. Your list is likely getting long with staging, cleaning out the clutter and even researching where you will go next, but amidst all of the selling hustle and bustle, there are often a few things sellers forget to do.

Before you get caught up in the process of selling your West Virginia home, keep the following often forgtten tasks in mind.

Remember all updates and repairs
Especially if you've lived in your Eastern Panhandle home for a while, all of the updates and repairs you've made may slip your mind. Make a list of everything you've done to the home, including any issues that were fixed or even if they went unresolved. Disclosing all of these to buyers can give them peace of mind and may help your home sale along.

Clean inside everything
When buyers arrive to tour your home in Martinsburg, Charles Town, Ranson, Shepherdstown, Harpers Ferry, Hedgesville, Inwood and Falling Waters, they will likely look inside everything. If you've neglected areas like the inside of cabinets or closets, know that buyers could easily be turned off. Take care to overturn every nook and cranny while cleaning in preparation to sell.

Pay attention to detail
Even the smallest of details can make a big difference to today's homebuyers, For instance, if your doorbell doesn't ring, buyers may wonder what else is on the fritz. First impressions are everything when selling your home and it starts with curb appeal! Work your way indoors from the home's exterior, checking off every box as you tour the home with your "buyer eyes." 

Let Kable Team Realty help you stay on track with your home sale this spring and ensure no balls are dropped as you navigate the process. We're here to help, so give us a call today!

With the busy spring real estate market here again in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle, you may be feeling the urge to get out and start exploring available homes. But if you're a first-time home buyer or have simply been out of the market for some time, there may be some terms you find you do not understand as you begin to dive further into listings in Jefferson and Berkeley County.

But don't worry! You can count on the Kable Team to make sure you have no uncertainties during your homebuying journey. Below are five important terms you will need to know this spring as a home buyer in Martinsburg, Charles Town, Ranson, Shepherdstown, Harpers Ferry, Hedgesville, Inwood and Falling Waters

1. Under Contract
This means the seller has agreed upon a contract with a potential buyer. This does not mean that the deal is done as it could still fall through pending financing and other factors.

2. Contingent
When you see a contingent status, that means the seller has accepted an offer and it is under contract. However, as mentioned above, there are certain factors that will affect the sale moving forward and criteria that needs to be met. This criteria is known as a contingency and can include everything from the home inspection to the appraisal and financing.

3. Pending
When a seller has an accepted offer and contract and there are no longer contingencies, you will see a pending status on the Eastern Panhandle listing. However, keep in mind that sellers will still take showings during this time in case the sale should fall through.

4. Active
This listing status means a property is currently on the market and available. Regardless of if offers have been submitted, none have been accepted if you see this status and it is open to you!

5. Closed
Just the opposite of the term above— you guessed it, this property status means the home is sold and no longer available on the market.

It's that time of year again! Yes, the official beginning of spring is here, but tax season is also upon us and if you're a homeowner in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle that means trying to save as much as possible. Now that doesn't mean you have to jump through hoops to cut down on your tax bill, but rather there are certain deductions that are available to all homeowners— if you remember to take them!

Below are three tax deductions you can take this year. You won't want to file your return without them!

Mortgage interest
Did you know that all of the interest you pay on your mortgage is tax-deductible? For loans up to $1 million, you can deduct what you've paid in interest for the year, although you do need to itemize your deductions to take this one.

Private mortgage insurance (PMI)
If you made less than a 20 percent down payment on your Eastern Panhandle home, your lender likely required that you pay private mortgage insurance (PMI). While this is an added expense, you can still deduct it on your taxes as long as your adjusted gross income is less than $100,000.

Energy efficient upgrades
If you installed any energy efficient upgrades like a new roof, insulation, solar panels, solar water heater, doors, windows or skylights, you may qualify for this 30 percent tax credit. There is a lifetime cap on certain items like furnaces and hot water boilers, so if you've already claimed up to $500, you won't be able to deduct any more.

If you're a homeowner in Jefferson or Berkeley County and are ready to make a move, do not hesitate to contact the Kable Team! We are happy to help you find your next dream home and make sure the right buyer finds your current property
