Life doesn’t begin and end in the same place. We’re always moving, always growing, always building the next chapter of our story. Now you are at a place in life where you are ready to turn the page and sell your home. You know you’re ready to move on, but you also know that whatever you do next still hinges on your ability to sell your current home. You’re hoping to get the process done quickly and hopefully earn some extra money from the sale to start your next chapter on the right foot. Here are some tips to help you along during the selling process.


Find a Listing Agent


As a homeowner, you have a choice to go at the selling process completely on your own, but there’s nothing about owning a home that makes you an expert on selling homes. You probably remember what it was like buying a house for the first time. It can be a complicated process, and the seller’s market is a completely different beast than the buyer’s market.


To really give yourself the best advantage, you need to enlist some professional help. Listing agents know all the tricks, and have all the resources on hand to help you sell your home quickly and at a good price. You can try to list on your own, but your chances for success increase drastically when you have a professional on your side.


Choosing the Right Time to Sell


When it comes to buying and selling real estate, you’ve probably heard the old adage, “Location, location, location!” While location is important when selling a home, you shouldn’t overlook the effect that time has on the selling process. The market hardly stays the same throughout the year and can fluctuate based on the time of year. Work with your listing agent to find the best time of year to sell your home based on your area and needs.


Competitive Pricing


Another important aspect to consider when selling your home is the price. Price can have a big impact on who considers your home in the first place. Many online house-finder sites use price filters to help buyers find a home in their desired range. If your price is too high, you could prevent potential buyers from even looking at your home. On the other hand, if you list too low, then you run the at selling your home below its value and losing money.


Deep Clean Your Home


Before you list your home, you will want the house to look spectacular. The best way to ensure that your home is looking top-notch is by having professional cleaners come in and give your home a thorough deep clean. Regardless of the qualities or drawbacks that come with your home, buyers will be impressed by a tidy place and will likely be willing to settle into a home they know is already clean and ready to go.


Stage to Sell & Promote Online


Giving your home a deep clean is a prerequisite needed to get your house properly listed online and ready for in-person viewings. Staging your home is a process that’s meant to bring out the potential your home has to offer and put it on display. You want to highlight your home’s strengths and set it up so people who look at your home can easily picture themselves living inside it. After staging your home to sell, bring in a professional photographer to take pictures of your home, then have your listing agent put up these pictures online.


Selling your home may seem intimidating at first, but by taking a pragmatic approach and enlisting the help of professionals, you are giving yourself the best chance to succeed. Just remember you have the final word and can push for the results you want. The next chapter of your life is ready to be written, and you hold the pen.
