TIPS FOR FIRST TIME HOME SELLERS

Regardless of what the market is doing at one point or another, you can sell your home when you want to sell it or if you need to sell it for different reasons. This process can be overwhelming: from pricing your home correctly to picking the right agent, there are many things to consider if you want to get the results you want.

It can be fairly easy to make mistakes as a first time home seller if you don’t have the proper guidance. Follow these tips to help you sell quickly and for a good price!

  1. Pick the right Realtor

A real estate agent has the experience and the connections to market your home and to avoid making costly mistakes. Look for a real estate agent that has a list of recent satisfied customers and pick one who goes the extra mile in everything they do. Over 90% of buyers find their home online, so you want an agent who has the skills to make your home noticeable with outstanding photography and detailed listing descriptions and uses social media to spread the word. The real estate agent you pick should regularly update their clients on the feedback from showings and put the seller’s needs before their own.

  1. Price the home appropriately

There are numerous factors that affect the price of your home. Your agent should have a good grasp of these factors and the current market conditions in your area. Some factors taken into consideration are recent similar closed sales, square footage, lot size, special features of the home, and the urgency of the seller to finalize the sale.

  1. Spend time getting the home ready

Your home is competing with the homes of other sellers, so take some time making some improvements before putting your home on the market. For starters, make sure your home and the outdoor spaces of your home are clean. Act as if you are a buyer and take notes on what needs to be repaired, replaced or put away. If you have the funds, doing the repairs before you put your home for sale will get you a great return on your investment.

  1. Be ready to move if you get an offer

Moving is a time consuming and tiresome process all on its own. When someone makes an offer on your home and you accept it, you will need to be ready to move quickly to finalize your relocation and get all your things out of your home.

  1. Understand what the costs will be for closing the sale

Make sure you understand every cost that will be coming your way. Have your real estate agent present you with a list of all costs and ensure you are prepared to pay them.

Put these tips for first time home sellers to work for you and start down the path to a successful sale!
