Selling a home can seem like a stressful undertaking but being prepared and understanding the process ahead of time will make it go just a little bit smoother. We want all of our sellers to be well-equipped, understand the process, and feel comfortable about their move. While each home is unique and requires different staging and set up, here are some of the basics that can be applied to any home sale.
Selecting Your Listing Agent
Even before preparing your home, it’s important to enlist the help of the listing agent. This is a licensed real estate agent, Realtor®, and/or broker that has the authority to list the property on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and who offers tips and suggestions on staging and marketing your home. It’s imperative to go with a listing agent that is well-qualified for your area or price range and is a seasoned professional. Pricing a home is a delicate process and less experienced agents may not understand the various market factors for your area, type of home, and market conditions. Experience matters when it comes to choosing the right listing agent.
Preparing Your Home
Preparing a home may require different tactics for each listing. Does the home need updating, upgrading, new appliances, certain repairs, different colors, staging, or landscaping to attract the best offer? While there are about 100+ different tips and ideas to marketing and preparing a home, each home will have its own unique requirements. This is where an experienced agent and their team of trusted vendors come in. We can discuss what your home needs to get the most profit from the sale.
Pricing Your Home
Pricing your home goes along with preparing the home for sale. The more attractive it is to buyers, the more valuable it becomes. While you can always sell a home as-is, if you’re planning on the most profit possible, it will take some effort and planning. Pricing a home correctly from the beginning is crucial. It’s important to understand the market, the neighborhood, and whether the pitch your price high, low or right at market value based upon competitive listings and recent sales.
We understand that this is your personal home so emotions can run high, but remember that buyers are just trying to be comfortable with their decision, too. Keeping your emotions at bay and being flexible with buyers will help get the home sold quickly and efficiently. Discuss every offer with your real estate agent to determine how to either counteroffer, reject, or accept the offer.
Planning, prepping, and staging as well as pricing, marketing, and selling can definitely be a whirlwind of emotions. Understanding the process and having a great listing agent by your side, answering questions and guiding you through the process, will make it much easier overall.
