Prepare Your Home
When selling a home, advanced preparation is essential. This includes everything from organizing each room to making critical repairs and upgrades. Begin your journey by assessing all spaces of your home — both interior and exterior. Look for obvious damage and wear and tear on walls, baseboards, flooring, doors, siding, and all other visible places. For less visible parts of your home, consider having an inspection conducted. Once you know what needs to be repaired and/or upgraded, you can work to get your home in top condition.
If you are unsure where to start, your realtor can provide you with a basic list of areas to evaluate. The better your home looks, the more money you are likely to make off of the sale.
Set Your List Price
One of the trickiest parts of selling your home is choosing a list price. Since there are so many variables involved, inexperienced individuals in this area often don’t know where to start. This is yet another aspect of the selling process that your realtor can help you with. After accumulating years of experience and having a firm understanding of the local market, your agent can recommend the most accurate list price for your home.
Utilize Home Staging and Top Marketing Techniques
Did you know that the appearance of your home can affect how quickly — and how much — it sells for? Experienced realtors understand what it takes to make your property as appealing to buyers as possible. Leverage the expertise of your agent when it comes to staging your home (virtually or physically), taking quality photos for your listing, creating a detailed online profile, and marketing your property to potential buyers.
Select the Right Offer
It is a common misconception to think that the highest offer is always the best offer. As you prepare to accept an offer on your home, work side-by-side with your realtor. Your agent can provide insight on what to look for in a quality offer. This expert insight will help ensure that your experience will be free of hassle, extra paperwork, and unnecessary delays.
