1) Should I hire a Realtor to list my home?
Yes, hiring a Realtor is vital to your success when selling a home. Most importantly, a Realtor will help you to set the asking price, prepare the home for sale, market the home effectively, negotiate the purchase contract, and guide you through to a successful closing.
2) How do you determine the value of my home?
We will complete a comparative market analysis (CMA) that compares your home to other homes that have sold in the area that are similar in some important respects. Factors to consider include the age of construction, total square footage, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as additional features such as garages, finished basements, and upgrades to name a few.
3) What should I do to get my house ready for sale?
The most important thing you can do is to eliminate as much clutter from your home as possible. As a general rule, you may want to eliminate about ⅓ of your personal belongings in the home including furniture. In addition, your Realtor can help you to determine what repairs or improvements may be a good investment prior to listing your home.
4) What will you do to market my home?
Your home will be marketed in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The MLS is a database of homes shared by Realtors providing exposure for your home to thousands of qualified buyers across the state and beyond. The MLS will also feed your listing to other important consumer real estate websites including Realtor.com, and Zillow.com just to name two.
