Agent & Price
These days, selling a home takes more than simply placing a “for sale” sign on the lawn and waiting for calls from interested buyers. Home sellers need to prepare by doing research on how to effectively market a home and getting information on some of the important steps involved in the home selling process.
Here are several helpful tips to keep in mind if you’re about to put your home on the market:
Get info on comparable homes in the area
Take a look at other listings in your area online. Try to find homes that match yours in terms of size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and features. Take note of the prices – this will help you estimate your home’s current value, allowing you to set a competitive price for your home.
Establish a realistic time frame
Before you put your home on the market, be sure to plan ahead by creating a time frame for the sale. If you require a quick sale, talk to your realtor about your goals and request a complete market analysis of the area. In case you’re not really in a hurry to sell your home, ask your realtor for a detailed analysis of local market conditions, which will help you predict the right time to sell your home for the best price possible.
Reevaluate your current financial situation
Review your current financial situation to prepare for different scenarios before selling your home. Consult your agent or financial adviser regarding the effect of the sale, ask for an estimate of proceeds, and make plans on how you can save on taxes. Selling your home will require you to have complete control over your finances, allowing you to use them to your advantage throughout the duration of the home sale.
Improve curb appeal
Having great curb appeal will increase your chances of landing a good offer, as it will help your home attract more potential buyers. The best part about improving curb appeal is that you don’t need to break the bank to create a good first impression. You can go with budget-friendly improvements such as applying a new coat of paint to your front door, installing a new mailbox, adding plants and flowers, or simply mowing your lawn and trimming any unkempt trees, bushes, and shrubs.
Staging your home before putting it on the market is a great way to make it more appealing to buyers, increasing your chances of selling it quickly and for the best price possible.
Staging highlights all of a home’s best features, making it look spacious, elegant, and well-maintained. Buyers looking at properties want to see homes that are in tip-top shape, which is why staging can do wonders for almost any home. It also puts their minds at ease, as staged homes always look move-in ready.
