Selling Your Home
About Town Realty is a different Real Estate Company
Selling a home requires some preparation, and a well-established Realtor at About Town Realty can help you. You truly must do what is necessary to make your house stand out from the competition. It needs to be fresher, cleaner and better maintained. Generally two things will keep a house from selling in a desired time frame: Price and Condition.
Step One: See your house as a stranger will see it. Be objective and take the advice your Realtor will give you as they list your house to market it for sale.
Step Two: An inspection by a professional Real Estate inspector will determine what repairs may need to be done and can save time after a buyer makes an offer. Doing the repairs will insure that a prospective buyer will have less to haggle over during negotiations.
Step Three: De-personalize by putting away personal pictures or knick-knacks. Too much furniture can be distracting and overpowering. Many buyers have a difficult time envisioning their things in a house with strong decorating personalities.
Step Four: Listen to the advice of your Realtor and be prepared. A home must show well inside and out to attract a buyer who will make a fair offer. Make your home as available as possible. Sellers who make it difficult to show a home will most likely not have as much activity as a home that is readily available for showing.
Step Five: Remember to have a plan in place when it is time to leave. Change of address, disconnect utilities, movers, cleaning and relocation to a new place.
Selling a house can be emotional and stressful, but trusting your Realtor to guide you through the process can relieve you of most of it.
