Marketing your house effectively means first getting an overview of the elements involved, then fitting the pieces into their proper place. Your first step is for you and your Realtor to formulate a strategy for putting your house on the market; what services to expect from your Real Estate Agent, how to set your asking price, how to estimate the net proceeds from your sale, how to get your house ready to sell, and more.
The over-all steps in selling your house are essentially these:
- Meet with your Realtor to determine your asking price and establish your personal plan for the maximum marketability of your house.
all financing options, including seller financing and other acceptable terms.
- Make all the repairs and/or improvements that will increase
the marketability of your home. De-clutter and minimalize furnishings, to make it look more like a "model home". Pack away and store
unneeded items, since you will be moving soon anyway.
- List your home at a REALISTIC price for the market, condition and location.
- Permit your home to be shown easily to prospective buyers. Do not be there or "hover" during showings. Secure pets for their own comfort,
as well as that of the potential buyers.
- Consider All Offers and let your Realtor negotiate the sales contract. Vicki is an outstanding
Negotiator with years of experience.
- Review the Estimated Cost Sheet that your Realtor prepares for you.
- Have necessary inspections
- Be patient while your buyer is approved for financing and the loan is processed.
- Move out of your home. Go to your closing and
move on to your future!
