As you get ready to list your home, you’ve got many things on your mind.
You want to make sure that you get the most money out of your investment, but what does that actually mean when it comes to your home? Here are a few things to keep in mind when selling your home.
Clean and Declutter
Doing a deep clean on your home before it goes on the market is a great idea! You don’t want to give any reason for a potential buyer to pass on your home. Buyers can be really picky and sometimes they aren’t able to look past what is in front of them. That includes your belongings. So, be sure to declutter your space and take some of your more personal effects out of the house when selling your home.
Choose the Right Agent
There are tons of agents in the area, but you need to choose the right one for you. Some agents and agencies specialize in high-end properties. Others like to work with homes in a specific area. Depending on your location and your home, choose an agent that is right for you. Robinson and Co. Realty has many different agents, each bringing a little something different to the table. So, contact us and see who fits your needs.
Setting the Price
This is one of the benefits of an agent. They know the market and can look at comparable homes that have recently sold to determine a great listing price for your home. If you need to get a certain amount out of your home, let your agent know that as well. That might be no problem, or you might get some homework to make certain upgrades.
Know how this will affect your finances in the next year. For most homeowners, they’ve lived in their house long enough that they won’t have to pay any taxes, but it’s always better to know everything before you sell your home. Just check in with your financial person to get the details.
There are other things to think about when selling your home, but for the most part, these are the big ones. They are also items that your agent can advise you on or point you in the right direction of finding an expert to answer your questions. If you’re ready to sell your home, contact us! We’d love to help you make this process as easy as possible.
