Home Seller Tip # 1

Home Seller Tip #1


Is it your Goal or One of Your New Years Resolutions to Sell Your Home this Year????


     If so, there are a few things you need to consider before you get started if you are a Seller.

 Number one, you want to find a Realtor who will work hard for you to get your home sold.



That's obvious, right???


Well.............there may be one thing that doesn't seem obvious, but all Realtors are NOT created equal.

     Make sure when you are interviewing the agent who will be selling your home, that not only do you find out How Much  your home's value is, but also,

How much cash is going to be left over for you when the sale is completed? 


Realtors go through extensive training in order to get their real estate license.  Part of this training is to help you find out not only the value of your home, but also how much is left over after you sell, or worst.....how much cash you have to bring to the table.  


     This is very valuable knowledge that you must have in order to make an educated decision on how to price your home.  You would be suprised how many Realtors are practicing Real Estate, and do not know how to calculate this simple fact.  When it comes to selling your home, you want to have as little suprises as possible.

Thanks for stopping by Lori Gardiner .  I was talking to a friend yesterday who actually had their real estate license.  They had their home listed with another agent and they were calling me for these numbers.  Every agent should know how to calculate these simple numbers.  Hope you have a great day and thanks again for stopping by.

Good morning Brenda. Texas must  have a great education requirement to obtain a license. I have gone through licensing courses in two states, including broker's licenses, and never been exposed to training on a "net sheet" during license education! Absolute kudos to Texas on this one. Practical training! Enjoy your day!

Good morning Wayne Martin we do have lots of education requirements in Texas thankfully.  The "Net Sheet" training is touched on in some of the classes, not extensively, however, the title companies here do have information sheets for sellers, which are also privy to realtors.  These sheets give a break down of seller cost.  I have been using these for years & it has worked out well for me.  It is up to the Realtor to take the initiative to get the numbers and put them in a spreadsheet for their client, or if they are unable to, then the agent can contact the title company and ask if they can do it for them.  These numbers are vital to the sale of the property and something a seller needs to know prior to listing it.  Otherwise, there may be a suprise that is not a good one when it gets time for closing.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day - do you use title companies where you are?  If it's attorney fees, then I can understand where it would be hard to estimate.

Good evening Brenda J. Andrew , You make a good point , as many buyers and sellers are not familiar with the way Real Estate trnsactions work. A good agent will keep their clients informed on what is available to them.

That's a really good tip, and if you're prepared with the answers at the listing appointment you'll do well.

I've worked with many real estate agents and they are not created equal. It's so important to choose wisely!

I think that is a great idea to encourage sellers to focus on how much is left after the sale and not so much on the listing price and commissions.
