Selling a Home
Choosing a REALTOR
As a seller, your relationship with a REALTOR is vital so meet with several before making a final decision. A good place to start is right in your neighborhood. Check FOR SALE signs to see which REALTORS are doing business in your area. Ask them about their knowledge of your neighborhood activity and other reasons why you should list with them. Choose a REALTOR you feel personally and professionally comfortable with; one who will handle the sale of your home as if it were his or her own, while making it a positive experience.
What to Expect
Your REALTOR will help you understand the selling process and what is happening in the market today. He or she will provide you with a full explanation of what to expect so you are not faced with any surprises along the way.
Getting to know you
One of the first things your REALTOR will ask is, Why are you selling your house?. Your REALTOR will also explore any time constraints you may have, your financial situation and any future plans, such as purchasing your next home. It’s all part of getting to know you so the sale of your home will be handled to your complete satisfaction.
Setting the Price
Arriving at an accurate estimate of value for your home is one of your REALTORs prime tasks. It involves analyzing your home and comparing it to other, similar houses for sale or recently sold in the neighborhood. It may also include a broader market survey, using sales statistics available only to qualified REALTORs. In the end, you will be sure the price you set reflects the true value of your home under current market conditions. Sometimes a different strategy may work better and a good REALTOR will know when to use such a strategy to draw more attention to your home and perhaps a higher selling price.
