Congratulations! You’ve decided to sell your home. Whether you’re upsizing, downsizing or just moving somewhere else for work or family reasons, the steps you need to take as a home seller are the same.
Getting your home market-ready is the first step. You want to ensure your home is as appealing as possible to prospective buyers, and your real estate agent can help you with this. The primary component of this step is decluttering, and it may be worth it to rent a storage locker for a few weeks while you sell your home to store any extra furniture.
The second step is to speak to your real estate agent and determine a fair market value asking price. A real estate agent can draw on years of expertise to ensure that this step is done right.
The third step is to get your home listed for sale. Working with a real estate agent ensures that your listing will get the attention it needs, and can often need a video tour or high quality photos.
Once your home is listed, the fourth step is to deal with incoming offers. Determining which offer is best for you depending on finances and the conditions or terms of the offer is also something your agent can help you with.
