Selling a home can be a daunting task. From all those little fixes the house might need, to the showings, the negotiations and the paperwork, it can feel overwhelming.
We, at RE/MAX Signature, help our sellers with this simple 5 step process:
- Make a plan.
Putting your home in the market is quite a task, and depending on market conditions, it can move fast. So, make sure you know what motivates you to sell, and what your next steps are. If you need to purchase a new home, talk to your RE/MAX Signature agent as both processes might need to be coordinated closely. Once your plan is set, we can talk about pricing.
- Price the property right.
Might sound evident, but this is one of the most challenging aspects of selling a home. Emotional attachment to our homes (we all have it!) tends to be confused with property value. When a property is overpriced, it will sit stagnant on the market without getting any offers. A great real estate agent will be able to show sellers the market value of the property, thus pricing the home right.
- Identify fixes needed & take care of them.
There might be some things you have seen around the home that need fixing. This is the time to do it. You want to show your prospective buyers the home is well cared for and want to avoid any obstacles at inspection period. The right way to tackle these repairs is with professionals; this is money well spent.
- Make the house look its best
The premise here is to make the home look clean and welcoming. For this we need to declutter, clean and beautify both the inside of the home as well as the yard. No better time to bring in some fresh eyes to help you see what needs help.
- Negotiate & get it sold.
After you received an offer, your RE/MAX Signature agent will work hard to get you the best deal and into the next chapter of your life.
