Deciding to sell your home can be an overwhelming and daunting process, however with the right Realtor on your side – this process can be much smoother than you imagined. But where do you start?
1. What are your home’s best features?
It is important to remember what made you buy your house in the first place. What was it about your house that made it feel like home to you. What excited you about its most appealing features? Now that you’re selling your home, you’ll need to look at it as if you were buying it all over again.
2. Pick the RIGHT Realtor
It is always important to make a careful and informed decision when choosing the right Realtor to help you market your home. The first thing a good realtor should do for you is a comparative market analysis. This will not only give you a better indication of the activity in your area, but also where your house should be priced at. The biggest mistake you can make is to over price your property, so be sure to pick a Realtor who will work with you to decide on a price that makes the most sense and that you are happy with.
3. Make a lasting first impression!
It’s no secret that a spruced up house makes a great first impression on potential buyers. An attractive property grabs their attention and makes them excited about finding a house that looks and feels well-cared for. So if you spend the time to prepare your home correctly, you will save that time with it sitting on the market. But remember, It’s not just the way your house looks to potential buyers, but how it feels and smells to them, how their friends and family will react, how they imagine it would be to live there. Decluttering and depersonalizing can really help a potential buyer picture themselves in your home.
