Step 1: The right real estate agent.
The right agent is someone with experience, a full-time professional Realtor who will help the process go smoothly, negotiate the best deal, and sell your home quickly. While it may be tempting to enlist a relative or friend - or even sell it yourself - the wise decision is to choose your agent based on expertise, track record, and knowledge of your market.
Step 2: The right price.
Your home, no matter how valuable it is to you, is only worth what someone else is willing to pay. Your Realtor can be objective, and determine your home’s value based on comparable sales in your area.
Step 3: A home inspection.
Identify issues ahead of time so you can work the cost of repairs into your home-selling budget. Knowing what repairs may be needed before the sale will save you from surprises. A presale inspection will be worth much more than it costs you in terms of saving you from having a hiccup after you find a buyer.
Step 4: Staging your home.
Decide what items you can live without while your house is on the market. Declutter and pack up those items, giving potential buyers an inviting space that allows them to see their belongings in your house. Deep cleaning your home - including carpets and even adding a coat of paint - will go far in making your home more appealing. Stage the exterior, too, and consider adding a few extra touches, like an outdoor planter. Don’t forget to plan an adventure for your pets while your home is being shown.
