Selling your home can be one of the most stressful things you do in your life, but it really doesn’t have to be. To increase your chances of a stress-free sale, here are our top 3 tips.
- First, find your realtor or agent. While every professional realtor should be licensed, it does not mean they are all created equally. Some have far more experience than others, and some specialize in the buying and selling or very particular homes. Do some research and conduct pre-hiring interviews to ensure the person you are choosing is right for the job (and yes, this includes doing an extensive dive into their reviews, too).
- Prepare for the sale. Being prepared by having a professional inspection done could mean the difference between a quick sale and one that takes months or years. Knowing ahead of time what things should be looked at and spending the extra money to fix any minor and major issues with your home will save you a headache in the future.
- Make sure you set the right price. Ultimately, the market will decide on how much your home is worth at any given time. Don’t get too greedy and try to crank up the price from what your realtor recommends as properties that are overpriced will sit for too long.
