Selling your first home can be an overwhelming experience. Most first-time home sellers are torn about their decision to move because they have so many happy memories shared with the family in the home. But, it is also exciting because moving is also an opportunity to move into a different home that may be a better fit.
If you are preparing to put your home on the market, it is important that you have a good real estate company to help with the listing. Since you haven’t yet been through the process of selling a home, an experienced real estate agent will be able to offer insights and advice so that you can quickly and easily sell your property.
To avoid rookie mistakes, here are a few things that you should talk about with your real estate agent:
Price of the Home
When you have an emotional attachment to property, it can be hard to understand its current value in the marketplace. Your agent will make it easier to set a reasonable asking price for the property by offering information about comparable homes in the area that have recently sold. Instead of stressing about the research yourself, let your real estate agent handle the details so that you can spend your valuable time on other important things.
Setting the right price will attract the right types of buyers. With the right price point and a good listing, you will be able to sell your home quickly. Many new home sellers make the rookie mistake of setting the listing price too high, which scares away potential buyers.
Amateur Real Estate Listing
The listing photos and descriptions matter, because the listing is your opportunity to connect with people who are potentially interested in buying your property. You need to make sure that you are setting the right impression when people are browsing the listings online.
An amateur real estate listing is easy to identify, especially if it includes poor quality photos, the listing is lacking in information or even grammar errors. Let your real estate agent help with the listing and make sure that you bring in a professional photographer to help.
If you want to set the right impression when potential buyers visit your home, you need to make sure the space is open, clean, and inviting. It is a mistake to leave personal items where they have always been! Take some time to clean out the closets, clear the clutter, and make your home look presentable. These steps can go a long way to set a great impression when someone walks through the door.
