There's a lot of competition in the current market for Houston homes for sale. If you're thinking about adding your home to the list, this checklist is for you.
#1. Set your goals. What do you expect from your sale? Do you just want to get rid of the home, or do you want the highest price possible? Will you be ready if a buyer wants to close quickly? The answers to these questions factor into how much time it takes for a house to come off the market.
#2. Decide whether to use an agent or not. Although many Houston homes for sale go faster and at better prices with a real estate agent, it's still possible to get a decent price doing it yourself. If you decide to use an agent, interview them and talk to their past clients to make sure you feel confident in their services.
#3. Set your home price. This is tricky, because if you don't set the right price, your house can sit on the market for a long time and sell for much less than it's worth. If you hire an agent, they'll analyze comparable homes and find a good price. If you don't hire an agent, make sure you look at recent sales on comparable homes, as well as neighborhood demographics to find the right price.
