Your Selling Plan
1. Find a Representative
The knowledge and dedication of your real estate agent is crucial to the successful sale of your home. A good agent will ensure a smooth, successful and stress-free sale.
2. Determine your Selling Criteria
Not only do you have to worry about selling your home, but you also have to think about where you are looking to buy. Determining a selling price is important; at the same time, accepting an offer slightly below your asking price often leads to a quick sale. Your knowledgeable agent will ensure you are satisfied with the result of the sale.
3. Prepare your Home for Showings
Homes that are not prepared for showings are one of the main reasons why people fail to sell their homes. We all know the saying: “first impressions last a lifetime”- same thing goes for your home. If your home does not look its best, it will likely result in a sales disaster.
4. Know about the Local Market
Knowledge about local market conditions is important for a smooth sale. A realistic awareness of market conditions will place you in a favourable position to sell your home. There is no substitute for a real estate professional to help you acquire market information.
5. List it!
It is important to have an effective online presence. Most buyers begin their search online. Your real estate agent should have the tools necessary to expose your home to a wide range of online searches.
