Exploring The Essential Steps Of Selling Your Home: Part 2

real estate for saleIn the last post, we discussed some of the first and most important steps to take when selling a house: examining the real estate market, getting an inspection, and investing in small aesthetic repairs. However, there are several steps that follow, and understanding the process in full is important in order to work best with your real estate agent.

Here are the next steps of setting up your real estate for sale:

  • Develop A Marketing Game Plan
    Having a well thought-out strategy for how you plan to sell your home is imperative to selling it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Most experts agree that it’s better to wait until a marketing strategy is fully developed to put your home on the market. Also, remember that in the 21st Century, your home will need an online presence as well.
    That means you will need professional real estate photography and attractive descriptions included with all of your home’s online listings.
  • Inquire About Relocation Assistance
    This is another important step to take before putting your home up for sale. Many of those who choose to neglect this step end up regretting it, and for good reason — many employers do offer some sort of relocation assistance. Experts say that many employers will even provide a list of real estate agents that will offer hefty discounts on services. If you’re unsure of whom to ask for assistance, start with your company’s HR department.
  • Start Consulting Real Estate Agents
    Finally, now is the time to start contacting and consulting with various real estate agents. The best way to find a quality agent is to test their knowledge by asking about general home advice. What do they think are your home’s most attractive features? What are the biggest changes they would make to your home before adding it to the ever-expanding collection of real estate for sale?
  • Set And Understand Your Home’s Selling Price
    Work with your real estate agent to set an appropriate asking price for your home. Remember: the way people look at houses is changing: 44% of home buyers now look online for properties, so don’t set the price so high that it deters people from clicking on the real estate listings altogether.

Ultimately, these are the essential steps of getting your home ready to sell. Once you set the price, it’s time to clear out as many items as possible to maximize the size perception of potential buyers. Above all, stay vigilant about keeping your home in good condition prior to selling and always stay on top of the local real estate market.
