This should go without saying, but sellers who take the time to tidy up their home prior to the realtor’s arrival may notice a higher chance in a successful sale. As it turns out, first impressions make a world of difference, so make sure your laundry is put away, and consider applying a fresh coat of paint to the rooms that could really use it. According to HGTV, staging your home is worth the investment because it helps neutralize your home into a space where potential buyers can imagine themselves living.
Calculate Your Mortgage
You may know exactly how much money you’ve paid on your mortgage, but it’s unlikely that you know exactly how much money is still owed on the home– a number that’s extremely helpful to your realtor! By knowing exactly how much money is still owed on the home, your realtor can begin to work on identifying how much your home can potentially sell for. If you aren’t a walking calculator, Bankrate.com offers a free amortization calculator, which can prove to be extraordinarily beneficial in the selling process.
Work Those Marketing Skills
According to the National Association of Realtors, 90% of potential homebuyers in 2012 utilized the Internet at some point during their home search, so be sure to talk with your realtor about getting your home up on websites like Zillow and Trulia.
The more pictures you can post of your freshly staged home, both interior and exterior, the more likely you are to sell your home quickly. To get a step ahead of the game, be sure to share the listing on Facebook.
Just imagine how much traffic your home can get from potential home buyers, simply by utilizing the Internet! If you’re at a loss on how to photograph your home to look its very best, consider hiring a professional photographer to do that part for you. The investment will surely pay off once your home sells!
Do I Need A Realtor?
If all the above sounds like a lot of work, it is! That is why hiring a realtor is highly recommended for home sellers. Unless you are a wealth of knowledge in market values, marketing, property values, and dealing with banks; getting a realtor to help you through the process of selling your home is beneficial.
