If you’re thinking about selling your first home, there’s a lot you should know, or if you’ve been a part of the selling experience before but haven’t in many years, a lot may have changed. Selling a home can be a time consuming and confusing process if you don’t have the right REALTOR® by your side.

Here are a few tips to help you understand what is involved in the process.

Find An Expert

Simply putting your home on the market is not enough. There’s a chance that it may still sell but the question is how much you could have made if it was sold the right way. How a property is presented both in-person and online makes a big difference. You will need an experienced agent who will advise you on pricing, preparing, and promoting your home so that you achieve your goals.

Pick Your Price

Work with an experienced real estate agent to decide on a pricing strategy for your home based on recent sales in the area and recent market trends. You will most likely profit more by pricing your home correctly which helps sell faster, than by overpricing it and having to wait.

The Power Of Staging

f your agent has a history of selling homes, they will help you identify the most important steps to prepare your home for the market, she/he will have suggestions on what can be changed to increase the success of the sale. But Having a Staging expert provide a pre-listing consultation is a must. A stager can provide advice, on furniture placement and suggest minor upgrades like decluttering, painting, or landscaping to make the first impression of your home a great one.

Work with an agent who includes Staging as part of their services.

Marketing Your Property

You’ll need a customized marketing strategy to get your property in front of more potential buyers, so you can get the best offer. You will also need an accurate description of the property, professional photography and video, printed media, as well as adequate market exposure.

Getting The Offer

Once you have secured an offer on your property, your agent will handle all the details, negotiations, and paperwork, making the sale as easy as possible.

Moving Out

Once you’ve signed all the necessary paperwork and received your payment, the only step remaining is to move. Pro Sellers usually make preparations in advance ensuring that utilities are shut off for the closing date and that everything is packed and ready to go.
