When to Sell
The time to sell will differ depending on each seller’s own circumstances. There are pros and cons to each: selling before making an offer on another home, buying a home before selling your existing home, buying a home contingent upon selling your existing home. Using a knowledgeable REALTOR® can help you determine the right choice for you.
It's critical to price your home right in relationship to the current real estate market and to the conditions prevailing in the area. If you want to sell quickly, you may want to set your price lower. If the time it takes to sell your home is not that important then you may be able to establish a higher list price. Determining the right list price is the most important part of achieving the highest return in the least amount of time.
Comparative Market Analysis
To get the most accurate estimate of how much you should list your property for, ask one of our REALTORS® to provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) - an informal estimate of market value. A comparative market analysis takes into account many aspects of your home, including size, features, and annual costs associated with your home, as well as known or market enhancing repairs and improvements. You will also receive information on recently sold, and listed comparable homes currently for sale in similar market areas.
Preparing to Sell
You never get a second chance to make a first impression! There's no need to spend a ton of money remodeling your home before you sell. A few key improvements could significantly increase your selling price and make for a faster home sale. Here are a few things to consider:
increasing curb appeal, manicured landscaping, overall cleanliness, all rooms clutter-free, make any necessary repairs, apply a fresh coast of paint.
Marketing Your Property
A thorough marketing plan will allow your home to stand out. Yard signs, direct mail, open houses, quality photography, strong web presence, and the latest technology and internet marketing strategies are how buyers are finding your home before the competition.
