6 STEPS TO SELLING:
1. REASON FOR SELLING
It is often more emotional to sell than to buy a home. The reason for selling your home may be a determining factor in the urgency of the sale. The urgency may also have an effect on the price of the property.
2. COST OF SELLING
It is very important to first calculate the expenses that may be incurred while selling your home. This knowledge is absolutely necessary because it helps you to determine a good price for the house, as well as the equity that you can realize.
The most important factor when putting your home on the market, is to set the right price.
Over-pricing of the property may result in:
A smaller buyers’ pool, and a prolonged stay on the market that will result in lower offers being submitted.
Under-pricing of the property may result in:
You losing money on your investment. And a Buyer offering an even lower amount due to a negative perception of the property or area.
Although you cannot do anything about the location of your property, it plays a very important part in the marketability of your home.
5. CONDITION OF YOUR PROPERTY
The condition of your property is always a factor in how quickly your home sells. It’s a fact: acquiring the highest market value, and elevating your home above the others in the same price range, often comes down to first impressions.
Staging your home to look its absolute best is an important factor in the selling process.
