We will discuss with you all the most important aspects of selling a home, including: Preparing your home so it’s attractive to prospective buyers Chances are, prospective buyers of your home are going to be looking at a lot of houses. That’s why you want to make sure yours stands out. If there are any obvious repairs that need doing before putting your house on the market, you’ll want to take care of those. Buyers will certainly walk away if they see things like broken windows and leaky roofs. This also extends to the inside of your home. Ensure everything is clean and organized and inviting for buyers. The people viewing your home want to imagine what their possessions will look like when they move in—make it easier for them by presenting your home in the best light possible. Strategically establishing and setting an asking price Your agent should be able to give you a thoroughly-researched overview of what comparable homes have sold for in your area. Taking into consideration factors such as the time of year, current interest rates, and the number of homes for sale in your area is important in establishing the right asking price.

Effectively marketing your home Your agent will have the tools to get your home listed on all the important real estate websites as well as organizing open house events. But you can also do some marketing on your own. Let your friends and acquaintances know you’re selling, post your home’s listing on social media sites for others to see and share. You never know—the buyer of your home might be someone you’ve known for years! Negotiating the best possible terms and conditions Once you receive an offer on your home, your agent will be able to advise you on whether to accept, reject, or make a counteroffer. And it’s not just the sale price that needs to be agreed upon. Closing costs, concessions, and agreements on repairs are all factors to consider. Completing the transaction After you’ve accepted an offer, it’s time to finalize your sale. With home inspections and contract signings, there’s still plenty to accomplish.

Again, your agent should be guiding you throughout this process to ensure all the i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed. Selling a home is certainly a complicated process, but with the right expertise guiding you, it’s possible to come out the other side unscathed, with a sale you’re happy with.
