Selling a home marks an important milestone in any homeowner’s life. Make your home selling experience as smooth and stress-free as possible by keeping in mind the following tips.
- Prepare your home.
Before you put up your home for sale, it’s imperative you prepare it for its next owner. Make sure to cover necessary repairs and upgrades. Some sellers make renovations or remodel to increase the value of your home.
Aside from repairs, make sure to prepare necessary property disclosures. Over the years, home selling has become a little more complicated. Be a responsible seller and make sure to cover seller disclosure statements and other important paperwork. If you’re unfamiliar with such things, don’t skip the next tip.
- Get a Realtor®.
Remember the disclosure settlements and other paperwork you’ll need to fulfill in order to sell your home? Well, getting a Realtor® to help you navigate the maze would be a wise decision. Aside from guiding you about paperwork, a Realtor®, particularly one with local expertise, will help you with other aspects of home selling, such as marketing, pricing, property inspections, and negotiating.
We recommend working with a Realtor® based in Northern Arizona, as real estate professionals with extensive knowledge about the local market will help you best and more effectively.
- Consider different factors for your home’s asking price.
Appraisals and inspections aren’t enough to determine the price of your home. How much it means to you won’t help either. To set the right asking price for your home, have your Realtor® come up with a comparable market analysis (CMA), which factors in similar homes for sale in your neighborhood. Interest rates and current market conditions are two other factors you’ll need to consider to be able to determine the appropriate price for your home.
If you have a rough idea of how much your home is worth, and would like to improve its value, consider making upgrades. Kitchen and bathroom renovations, as well as finished basements, are proven to increase a home’s value.
- Help your Realtor® market your home.
Have your Realtor® share his or her marketing plan for your property. Although your Realtor® has all the necessary tools and strategies to market your property and generate enough interest about it, it pays to know the home selling process and market your home as well.
Nowadays, plenty of home sellers utilize the power of social marketing tools to get their listing out there. Sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are inexpensive, if not free, tools you can use to market your property.
- Stage your home.
Make potential clients feel at home in your property. Staging your home can be done by yourself or by professional stagers. By de-personalizing and decluttering your property, you’re enabling potential buyers to envision themselves living in your home. An individual is less likely to make an offer if he or she can’t imagine a life in your listing.
