Eight Steps To Sell Your Home
Define Your Needs
Write down all the reasons for selling your home. Ask yourself, “Why do I want to sell and what do I expect to accomplish with the sale?” Write down if you’d like to sell your house within a certain time frame or ensure a particular profit margin. Work with your real estate agent to map out the best path to achieve your objectives and set a realistic time frame for the sale.
Name Your Price
Setting an ideal yet fair asking price will generate the most interest from other real estate agents and buyers. You will need to take into account the condition of your home, what comparable homes in your neighborhood are selling for, and state of the overall market in your area. It’s often difficult to remain unbiased when putting a price on your home, so your real estate agent’s expertise is invaluable during this time.
Prepare Your Home
Most of us don’t keep our homes in “showroom” condition. The state of your home will affect how quickly it sells and the price the buyer is willing to offer. First impressions are key. Your real estate agent will help provide a fresh perspective and suggest a variety of ways to effectively stage your home to ensure it is appealing to prospective buyers.
Get The Word Out
Now that you’re ready to sell, your real estate agent will design and implement a sales and marketing strategy created specifically for you and your home. From direct mail to open houses and online advertising, your agent will leverage all available marketing channels to guarantee your home is seen by ideal customers everywhere.
Receive An Offer
When you receive a written offer from a potential buyer, your real estate agent will find out whether or not the individual is prequalified or preapproved to buy your home. If the buyer is qualified, then you and your agent will review the proposed offer, taking care to understand what is required of both parties to execute the transaction.
Negotiate To Sell
Most purchase offers will require some negotiation to come to a mutually beneficial agreement. Your real estate agent is well versed in the negotiation process and will represent you and your unique needs to ensure you are empowered in your decision and comfortable with all elements of the final sale price.
Close The Deal
“Closing” refers to the meeting where ownership of the property is legally transferred to the buyer. Your agent will be present during the closing to guide you through the process and make sure everything goes as planned. Your agent will address any last-minute issues that may arise and provide you with a smooth and profitable conclusion to your home sale process.
