Are You Ready to Sell Your Home?
Putting your home up for sale is a big deal. If you have lots of questions, you are not alone. Here are some tips to keep in mind when you decide it’s time to sell.
Establish a Plan of Action
Think about why you are selling, prepare your home for buyers to see, prepare to negotiate, and find yourself a real estate agent who you trust.
Consider Your Offers
Put yourself first. Consider the best price and the best terms. Closing costs, repair costs, and quick closes can make a huge difference as a sell. All-cash deals can also work in your favor, so take the time to carefully weigh your options.
Effective marketing results in more offers. The better you market, the more choices you’ll have to get the price and terms you want. Get the word out, and make sure it’s clear that your home is for sale for both passersby and the online audience.
Get an Inspection
This protects you and the buyer. During the inspection, any plumbing, roofing, electrical, and structural problems will be identified, and the final report will be an accurate representation of your property at the time of sale.
Set a Fair Price
If the price is set too high, you’ll scare off buyers. Do your research and compare your house to others on the market; or better yet, let an agent do that for you. A comparative market analysis can make all the difference when it comes to setting the “right” price.
Find The Right Agent
Well-connected agents know the local market inside and out, and they can provide information on past sales and current listings.
