Six Easy Steps for Selling a Home
When deciding to sell your home, you have to make many emotional decisions. Even if you've bought or sold a home before, this process can still be daunting.
Let's look at the many steps involved in selling a home and see how a real estate professional works to tie them all together.
Hire a Listing Agent
Hiring the right listing agent to sell your home is the single biggest determinant of how successful you will be selling your home.
Prepare for the Sale
The first impression your home makes on a potential homebuyer likely will be a lasting one. Preparing your home for showing doesn't mean spending a lot of money or making any major changes or improvements, but it does mean cleaning up your home's interior and curb appeal.
Properly Pricing Your Home
Choosing the right pricing strategy for your home and your situation is the most important decision for attracting the high number of qualified buyers to your home immediately after going to market with your home.
Market and Show Your Property
Proper pricing helps a buyer determine if they should even consider your home. Marketing and showing your home in it's best light and uncovering a buyer's true motivations actually take your property from being on a buyers list to being at the top of it.
Receive & Negotiate Offers
You need to know how to encourage buyers to make offers, how and when to respond when you receive offers, and what the best mix of price, dates, and terms are for your specific situation.
Accepted Offer Through to Closing
You have accepted an offer, now you have to get to the closing table.
