We get it. You’re eager to get out of the home that you’re in and into the next one. It’s understandable, and it’s how most people selling their homes feel.
However, in all of that eagerness, you may be skipping over important things. Because of this, you might be damaging your ability to sell your home. Even worse, you might be eating into the profits that you might otherwise net when you sell your home.
For this reason, you want to make sure that you’re absolutely ready to sell once you put your house on the market. Here are the things you need to do before making the decision to sell.
- Home Improvements: If your house is out of date, then you’re going to find selling an uphill climb. Therefore, consider your home and the current trends in the market place. If your home is lagging behind, then make some of the necessary updates before getting on the market. It’s an investment now, sure. But, once you sell, you’ll find that you make quite a handsome return!
- Research the Market: In your eagerness to sell, you might already have a price in mind. This is a mistake. Instead, you should take the time to research the local housing market and to examine what other similar properties have sold for. This will give you an idea of what your home is worth, and can guide selecting an appropriate price that will build interest.
- Preparing for the Negotiation: No matter what price you put on your home, you can bet that a potential buyer will try to talk you down. It’s the nature of the beast, so why wouldn’t you prepare for it? With your realtor, review the minimum value you’re willing to take and what stipulations you’d attach to that minimum value. If you know beforehand, it will make the negotiation process far easier!
