What’s My Home Worth

Selling Your Home

The home selling process can be a challenge, even for those who have gone through it before. If you’re planning on selling your home, this guide will walk you through the steps necessary to maximize your sale price, reduce the amount of time your home spends on the market, and prepare for closing proceedings.

Though there are many ways to facilitate the sale of a home, your best bet for selling your home quickly at or above the listing price is to work with a real estate agent. As professionals with home-selling expertise accumulated over the course of years, real estate agents will facilitate this process from start to finish by performing vital functions like marketing your home, helping to price it correctly, and negotiating with buyers and their agents.

Choose A Real Estate Agent

When choosing a real estate agent, it is important to know what your needs are. Not all agents are created equal! First, you want someone knowledgeable in the market you are in. A good agent should know your neighborhood. Are you an investor? First-time home buyer? Selling a luxury property? These are all important factors to consider. Most importantly, you want a strong negotiator and advocate. Negotiations do not end after parties agree on a purchase price. I am proud to be a Certified Negotiations Specialist (CNE) and am usually able to save my clients hundreds, often thousands, of dollars throughout the course of a transaction. And finally, always choose a licensed REALTOR®. The National Associations of REALTORS® has a strict Code of Ethics to ensure its members serve their clients with their best interests in mind.
