Are you ready? Are you ready? Selling a home starts with the idea. One day you’re looking around the house and say to yourself, hmmm I think I may need a bigger house or you say this house is too small, too old, too much work. Whatever, it starts with the idea.
Here’s what typically comes next, how much is this house worth? I know what I owe I’m sure it’s worth a lot more than that. Let’s be real, I would imagine that if you have been in your home for 3 years or more you should have equity. That’s great because you can use that equity to move forward. With the interest rate at such a low, it’s a great time to upgrade.
Let’s start from there. While you’re in the moment call your Realtor to run the comps for the area. That will give you the correct amount in the area with like houses. I like to research the area with the size of the property, the current Sold properties. I also always go over to the home and look at the condition. Looking at conditions is a real story of how well received the potential buyers will perceive the value in their eyes. I’ve seen listing pictures on the MLS that quite frankly should have never been taken. The difference comes when a room is neat and picked up or a sloppy mess. Clothes all over the floor, dishes in the sink, a full trash bucket. You get the picture. A picture is worth a thousand words.
The better the condition the faster the sale. Next time I will go over functional items such as the roof and a/c. How to sell a home? I like to keep it #SIMPLE.SAFE.SOLD.
