So you are thinking about selling your home? Here are 5 things to keep in mind before you put it on the market.
Do your research and find a good real estate agent who is knowledgeable in your market. You need to be completely comfortable working with this agent and trust them to sell your home. Get a referral from a trusted friend or family member, or interview several agents to see who is the best fit.
Be prepared with any documents that your agent might request. Being organized will be key in how your agent writes compelling text about your home when it hits the market. Items that buyers may want to know about might include roof age, ages of included appliances, dates of recent home improvement projects, etc.
Get the house ready to sell. It is amazing what a fresh coat of paint or having the carpets cleaned can do to help get your house sold fast. Don’t forget to declutter so potential buyers can picture their items in the space. Consider curb appeal as well; it will be the first thing that potential buyers will see.
Price the home right from the start and be realistic about what that number will be. A good real estate agent will help you with that decision. They will be able to correctly compare your home to others on the market that have recently sold. As the market begins to slow slightly, overpriced homes are not selling.
Once the house hits the market, be ready to show it. You will want to keep everything neat and tidy. You never know when a potential buyer might want to see your home, so don’t let a last-minute showing pass you by because the house is not clean.
