Real Estate Sellers Guide

 

Selling your Home

Selling real estate is not something to take lightly. Agents will make it a priority to bring only pre-approved buyers. However, there are some easy steps that can help you get the maximum return on your home. The first step is to find a real estate agent to guide you through the process.

Get the Agent’s Advantage

At some point in the selling process, most people consider selling the property themselves. While FSBO (For Sale By Owner) is not necessarily a bad way to go, homeowners typically do not get the same prices as professional agents. Our agents will make sure they bring only pre-approved buyers. Even after factoring in an agent’s fees, the amount of work it takes to sell a home tends to make an agent a worthwhile investment.

Real Estate Agents

After finding a real estate agent you trust, the next critical step is pricing your home. Look around at similar houses for sale in your neighborhood and price yours in that range. Of course, the interior and exterior condition of your home will make a large difference. For example, if you’ve remodeled recently or have new appliances, the price will naturally increase. Your real estate agent will use the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) to come up with an appropriate price; however, this will simply be a suggested price. The final decision will be up to you, which is why it pays to do a bit of comparative research.

 

 

The next step is getting your home ready to show. Open houses are critical in stirring up interest in your home, but too few sellers really take the necessary steps to make their homes buyer-friendly. For example, repainting the exterior of your home is relatively inexpensive and offers huge results in terms of curb appeal. Inside, it’s best to make your home as free of clutter as possible. You may even want to rent a storage space for extra furniture and items--even your closets should look spacious. The offer(s) on your home will most likely come from open house attendants. After that, your agent will be able to handle most of the details, though the final decisions on price and sale will be yours to make.

Comparative Market Analysis

Comparative market analysis (CMA) is an essential part of every real estate agent's job. It is used to determine the value of a property through comparison to similar property transactions located within a certain radius. A CMA will accurately establish a sale price and will also guide buyers in deciding on a fair offer. As an agent, you know that conducting a thorough and professional CMA is critical to minimizing time on the market as well as ensuring that your clients receive or make an offer that is fair and reasonable.
