5 STEPS SELLING A HOME
Step 1: Price it right from the start. The price at which your property is marketed can make or break the deal. Hire a professional realtor to help you out with the calculations and variables that may be involved in the sale.
Step 2: Hire a Real Estate Agent. Realtors handle everything from pricing the property, showings, contract negotiations, dealing with lenders and appraisers, etc. They will also offer valuable advice on possible necessary renovations and how to prepare your home in order to sell it fast.
Step 3: Market your home right. Get a storage unit and declutter your home, do not just shove everything in a closet. Make small upgrades, focusing on kitchen and bathrooms, where you're most likely to see a return on your investment. Also consider a fresh coat of paint in the main living areas.
Step 4: Market your home right. Make sure your listing is on all the major online portals, including Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com. Ensure the listing has good photos, and lots of them.
Step 5: Make the property easy to show. The more flexible you are about visits, the more people will be able to see your home. Try to leave the house during showings to give prospective buyers the freedom to discuss its pros and cons honestly without worrying about offending the seller.
