First Steps of Selling Your Home

Handing over keysSelling a home is not an easy thing to do. Many steps have to be taken to assure your home sells quickly and for a seller friendly price. Preparation of the home's condition and marketing the home are two very key early steps in the process.  

Some people feel they can sell their home on their own, they fail to realize a professional will advertise the home using the realtor's state of the art marketing, negotiate the best price, and make the process as stress free as possible for the seller.

Photos, Photos And More Photos!

Buyers want to see photos. They lure people and get their curiosity up. Consider hiring a professional photographer and include a virtual tour of your beautiful home!
If you are selling your home in the winter, you should display pictures of what your house looks like in the spring time.
 

Need An Attorney?

Make sure you hire a full time real estate attorney - one that is accessible and welcomes your calls and questions. Get at least three referrals from family, friends or your real estate agent. Plan your questions and interview your attorney. Try to do it in person if possible.

Sale Signs Are A Must

A real estate for sale should be on every house on the market. At least 20% of all buyer calls come from sale signs, so allow your broker to display a sign. Sometimes the old-school ways works. As a seller, you want every edge.
