Time to Sell your Home?


If you have decided it is time to sell your home either because your family needs more space or you need less space, a decision to sell your home is not one made lightly. There are a few things to consider before you put your home on the market:

Do it Yourself – Or Use a Professional: You might feel like you can sell your home yourself, besides, you have lived there for the past many years and you know it better than anyone else can. But, are you knowledgeable about marketing your property, safety precautions for having people view your home and the negotiation process? If you, you will be better off hiring a real estate professional. They will do the work for you and you will pay them their commission when your home sells.

The Asking Price: I know you think that your home is worth $225K but if homes in the area are only selling for $198K, then your home is priced too high and it will probably be on the market for a while – or it might not even sell. You want your home to be priced comparably to others in the neighborhood – not too high and not too low.

Showing Your Home to Potential Buyers: You finally have your home listed for a specific amount and it is time to get your home in order so people will WANT to buy it; Make sure that you put away all extra stuff, whether you stick it in the attic or in containers in the garage, get it out of the way. You want others to sell themselves in your home. This is also the time to see what needs to be fixed, replaced or upgraded.

My goal is to share information to make you more informed when it comes to buying and selling a home. I hope that this blog was informative to you or someone you know. When you are ready to make that move, I am here to help you.
