Where do you start when you’re ready to sell?
Your home is often your largest financial asset, so preparing to sell takes thoughtful consideration and a bit of planning. Let’s explore a few things that may be overlooked and can help take some anxiety out of the listing equation. It can be tricky preparing to list your home while juggling work, family, and the real estate market.
What are you being compared to?
Your realtor should know your neighborhood inside and out and have an understanding of not only the comp listings, but other homes that buyers will see and compare your home to. In other words, all 4-bedroom homes are not alike, so your agent’s experience matters!
Keep in mind that home prices can change drastically depending on the season and where you live. Consult with your realtor to determine the best sellers window for your local real estate market.
What is Unique About Your Home?
Consider what makes your home special on your street or in your neighborhood. What details set it apart from the pack? It could be on a double lot, have gulf views, or any number of amenities that will showcase it appropriately.
How High is Too High?
An experienced realtor knows that pricing a home too high can lead to a price reduction later on and can make your listing stale. A frank discussion on list price is one of the most important steps before listing.
It’s always wise to remember that real estate is fairly unpredictable, so it’s best to remain flexible. Keep an eye on factors that affect pricing in your area like property tax increases, interest rates and job market trends.
