For those of you who are preparing to sell your home for the first time, congratulations! The process can be a learning experience for first timers, though, so in this blog post, we’ll share a few helpful tips for first-time home sellers.
Find The Right Real Estate Agent
Working with the right real estate agent is an important part of selling your home. Working with a real estate agent that isn’t familiar with your neighborhood, hasn’t sold houses similar to yours or doesn’t seem passionate about taking on your home may not be your best bet. Finding someone who knows your area and has sold houses in your price range will increase your chances of that real estate agent being able to sell your home. Additionally, if they seem passionate to take your home on, this may be an indicator that they will be willing to work hard to sell your home.
Price It Right
Whether your house has appreciated or depreciated in value since you first purchased it, one of the most important things to consider when selling your home is the price. Getting an appraisal will help you get an idea of what your home’s current value is, but even if you end up pricing it within range of its appraised value, there’s a chance that it may be too high. Bearing in mind the demographics of your neighborhood as well as those of the people who are moving to it, finding a price that is both fair to you as well as pleasing to a potential buyer is key in the process of selling your home. Additionally, be ready to get offers from interested parties. Very rarely does an interested party simply accept the buyer’s asking price for a home; more often than not, a potential buyer may check to see if the seller will move on the price. Pricing it right will ensure that even if you do get offers, they’ll likely be closer to your asking price than if you were to price your home a bit too high.
Be Prepared To Move
While listing your home for sale can be stressful because of the uncertainty as to whether your house will sell or not, by working with the right real estate agent, pricing it right, and doing other things like staging it well, you’ll greatly increase your chances of selling your home during its first listing. With this in mind, while your home is on the market, you need to be prepared for the possibility that someone may either pay your asking price or make you an offer on your house that you’re willing to accept. You don’t want this to sneak up on you. To prepare for selling your home, have some items packed and in storage. This will make things far easier on your end when the time comes to move, as you’ll already have a portion of your belongings packed and ready to move to your new locale.
