So You Want to Sell Your Home…

Your home has grown too small.

You’ve been offered a new job or position in a different state.

You want to downsize.

You want to upsize to a home in a golf course community.

Whatever the reason, you now find yourself in the position of needing to sell your home. Whether you have done this before or are getting ready to sell your first home, the selling process can be intimidating.

Collected here, I have assembled some articles on getting your home ready for the active selling market. You will find practical articles on preparing your home for sale, and articles about industry practices of which consumers should be aware.

Imagine yourself coming the active real estate market already knowing where your home stands in the current market, and where the speedbumps to closing may lie. Click the button, and let’s put dreams into actions.

What’s My Home Worth?

Marketing

Too Big to Succeed: There comes a point where too big means not being able to stay on top of crucial details. Be sure that your agent has your interests first and foremost in their mind.

Tired Listings: Marketing a home should mean lining up the online and in-person experiences in such a way that there is little incongruity.

Image Counts: Professional photography to highlight and market your home are key to obtaining the highest sale price, in the shortest time possible.

Practices

Exclusive Listing{video}: This post discusses the practice of “exclusive listings.” This practice may be responsible for sellers losing thousands of dollars on the sale of their home, and also may explain how some homes appear to become active and sold on the same day.

Open Houses: Just how effective are open houses for the selling consumer? Why does it seem that the industry loves the open house, when many selling consumers are leery of them?

Guaranteed Sale Program: If a program sounds too good to be true, it likely is. Guaranteed sales programs should be entered with eyes wide open, as they contain some potentially shocking surprises.

The Rebound Agent: Communication is key!

Preparation

Finding the Right Agent: Now, clearly I am biased as to whom you should work with, but I recognize that I can’t help everyone. So, in the spirit of helping as best I can, here are some pointers in what to look for in your listing agent.

Market Analysis or Print Out: You are getting ready to sell a home. Do you want an analysis or just the print out from the automated valuation algorithm? What are you paying the “professionals” for anyway?

Selling a Cluttered House | Declutter it!: Physically preparing your home for sale means putting your home’s best foot forward. Dusting, cleaning, organizing, and throwing out “stuff” is a great beginning to helping buyers appreciate your home.
