Your First Steps When You’ve Decided To Sell Your Home

When you officially make the decision to sell your home, there’s a lot to get ready! We’ve compiled some handy steps for you to get yourself sorted when you decide to sell.

1. Get your home ready to show

You will need to take time to declutter and thoroughly clean your home, while removing anything “extra” that you won’t need for the next few weeks or months. This may just take a weekend, but you might want to consider getting a storage locker for the time being to store any extra items. This will remove any unnecessary items from your home while also making it appear more spacious.

2. Speak with a real estate agent

A real estate agent is the next best stop on your home-selling path. They have the expertise to help you with anything left to do in your home staging-wise, and can help you come up with a fair market value asking price.

3. List your home

Working with a real estate agent will ensure that your listing gets all of the attention it deserves, from high-quality photos and a virtual or video tour to final staging preparations and open houses.

4. Deal with offers

Obtaining an offer doesn’t mean that your job is finished – or your real estate agent’s. Your agent will discuss your offers with you and help you negotiate a deal that works best for you – both financially and conditions-wise.
