Youve been thinking for some time about selling your home.It is never an easy decision as often the emotional attachment to ones home is strong, but you now believe that it is the right time in your life, when moving on makes sense. Having come to this conclusion, what should you do next? Here are our suggestions for making the selling process easy, effective and worry free.
- Contact Realtors®, such as Steve and Carol Bush, to visit your property to do a free market opinion of value. This is the first important step in ascertaining how your property compares to those currently on the market and those recently sold in your area. This no obligation market analysis provides you with information in order to make essential and informed decisions on whether to list your property now and if so, for how much money.
- Once the Realtors® have the opinion of value report prepared and you have reviewed it, meet with them to get their professional advice on the suggested price range, how they will be marketing the property, and what are their suggestions for getting your property ready to be viewed by buyers. Make sure that the real estate professionals have discussed fully your goals in selling and that you are confident that they have answered your questions thoroughly. They should have a proven track record of successfully selling real estate and will commit to working for you effectively through skilled communication and the marketing of your property.
- Once you have made the decision to list your property, it is now time to do a few things to make the presentation of your property more appealing. Your Realtors® are going to take pictures of the interior and exterior of your property, and anything you can do to make the interior and exterior neater and less cluttered will help in the visual marketing of your home. It can be as simple as removing an old tire leaning against the side of a garage or taking snap shots off your refrigerator. The goal is to entice buyers to see your property because of the pictures exhibited on the internet and in print. In effect buyers need to be able to view themselves living in your home prior to making a showing appointment.
