When you decide to sell your home, what can you do to
prepare? To sell your home in the shortest time for the
highest price, you need expertise in marketing, financing,
and negotiation, as well as legal matters. So, the first
thing you do is to list your home with a real estate agent
who can put all their training and experience to work for
As you physically prepare the home for the market, put yourself in the shoes of the prospective buyer and ask if you like what you see. Consider repairs, painting, and other improvements. Your agent can advise you about the best and most cost-effective improvements.
Remember that buyers generally seek the least expensive home in the best neighborhood they can afford. Be careful not to over-improve, or you'll price yourself right out of the neighborhood. Cosmetic improvements like painting and landscaping can help a home show better, and basic mechanical repairs to heating/air conditioning and water systems, as well as appliances, are also a good investment in order to get top price.
To ensure your home will successfully compete against
others in your area, contact your real estate agent, who
can estimate its fair market value and make suggestions
that will result in the highest selling price in the
shortest amount of time. For more advice Contact us
