Top 5 Tips For Home Sellers
There are five crucial rules to follow as you embark on the sale of your property.
Choose your agent carefully.
Find an agent who is a neighborhood specialist, has successfully sold in your area and with whom you will work well.
Are there financial and legal implications to selling a home?
Consult with your accountant and lawyer before listing your home to understand the financial and legal implications of the sale.
Before you list your property.
Your agent will educate you about the recent sales of comparable properties so you understand the current state of the market and the value of your home.
What are some home preparations that can be done?
Prepare your home for selling. Fresh paint, clean surfaces and minor renovations can make a huge difference. Ask your agent for help staging or information on how to hire a professional stager.
When is the best time to sell?
Timing is important, so discuss with your agent the optimal timing for you personally as well as that of the buyer.
