Timing The Sale Of Your Home

While every market is unique, there are always local trends about the right time to put your home up for sale. I strongly believe that only you can determine the right time to sell your home. Remember to factor in key variables such as lifestyle and schedules, school sessions or vacations and time needed to make repairs so that your home can put its best foot forward.



The Value of a Real Estate Agent

Much as in buying a home, a real estate agent also provides unique benefits when looking to sell your home. It is very important that your real estate agent be able to leverage their local network and bring crucial area insights about other homes that may be competing with yours.



Showcasing Your Home

We know your home is unique and to realize its maximum value you need to convince every buyer of the same. The best place to start is to get into a potential buyer's shoes and evaluate the changes your home needs. And, remember to take the time to complete the changes so your home can compete with others in the local market.



Marketing Your Home

Marketing your home is one of the most critical roles that your real estate agent will play, so you should ask several questions about it. An effective marketing plan includes both offline and online resources with attractive description of your home and a pricing strategy that allows you to create a beeline of potential buyers with the opportunity to get the most value for your home.


Showings and Open Houses

One of the most common ways to showcase your home is to host showings and open houses. A showing is a professionally scheduled appointment that gives a potential buyer the opportunity to tour your home. An open house is for any buyer to walk through and view your home, usually for a few hours on a Saturday, Sunday or early weeknight.



Receiving An Offer

It is a relief to receive an offer for your home, but it is more important to understand the price the buyer is willing to pay and terms of such payment. An experienced real estate agent must work with you to identify any hidden clauses or potential challenges and you may also wish to consult with an attorney before you sign the contract.



Inspecting Your Home

A home under contract typically goes through a detailed inspection. Home buyers welcome inspections because it allows them a closer look at the home. Home sellers should also view inspections as an advantage because the buyer's inspection can also serve to help protect the seller by reducing the possibility of legal action in response to undisclosed and unanticipated defects.



Closing of The Sale

The final and ceremonial step requires you to be focused on ensuring that all paperwork is in order and that you are fully prepared for the closing costs.
