Preparing to sell your home typically takes some work, whether that’s your own sweat equity or some professional improvements. After all, you want buyers to fall in love with your home, like you did when you first bought it. Spend some time getting your home move-in ready, in a way that will appeal to the broadest range of potential buyers.
Finding the right listing price for your home can be a challenge, but it’s one of the most important factors in a successful home sale. Homes that are accurately priced are more likely to sell in a timely manner. According to research, 57 percent of homes nationwide sell at or above listing price when they accept an offer in the first week. Once your home is ready for buyers, the next step is getting your listing in front of as many buyers as possible.
Millions of homes are sold each year, and each transaction is unique. With recent changes to contract forms and addendum, home selling has become more complex than it was just five or 10 years ago. A real estate professional can assist you in pricing your home according to current market conditions, give you tips on showing your property, assist you with negotiations and guide you through the process once an offer is presented.
