When you make the decision to sell your home, there are 3 factors you need to consider:
1. Location - Where your home is located has the biggest impact on how much money your home will sell for and on how quickly your home will sell. An important first step in selling a home is to study the real estate market conditions in your area. Please contact us for the most recent real estate market reports for your neighborhood or go to TeamZuhl.com. Your real estate professional will also help you to compare your home with others like it to see what the market value of your home is. This is called a Comparative Market Analysis.
2. Marketing - You want your home to be seen by as many prospective buyers as possible. Not all real estate professionals are equal. Choose the agent that you trust to do the best job in marketing your home.
3. Condition - Homes that are well maintained and have current updates sell for more money and sell more quickly than homes that aren't in great condition. The good news is that only you control the condition of your home. To prepare your home for sale, you'll want to make sure that all routine maintenance is up to date. Then, remove all clutter as best as you can. Store, sell, or dispose of everything you don't want to make your home the most appealing to prospective buyers.
As always, if there's anything Team Zuhl can do to help you get your home ready to sell, we're just a phone call away!
