Tips for Selling a House in Kingstowne VA

Real Estate Agent with Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group Brokered By eXp Realty 0225221517

First time or not, selling a house is no easy feat. There are a lot of things to get done, from the paperwork to packing and everything in between!


It really pays off to do your research before you begin this process. Keep reading to learn these tried and tested tips on house selling from Kingstowne’s top Realtor®!


Choose the right real estate agent


It all begins here. While the Internet may be a helpful resource from time to time, nothing beats having a professional Realtor® by your side to guide you from start to finish.


Each person’s house selling journey is different. You can’t really expect a post you read online to be 100% accurate for your needs. That’s why my first piece of advice is to find that professional who can help you through all your house selling worries and concerns.


How to choose the right real estate agent? Make a list of all your candidates. These can be agents you found online or a referral from a friend.


Narrow the list. Give each one a call, ask them some questions, and mark the ones that impressed you. Schedule an appointment with these ones, and sit down with them for some time before making your choice.

Remember to read up on their history and background. Take note of how many years they’ve been in the industry, and ask people you know if they have anything to say about the Realtor® you’re considering.


Prepare your house for staging


Do you want to sell your house fast? Do you want it to sell for the best price? Staging is the way to go!


Staging is the process of making a house for sale look appealing to potential buyers. Think about the homes you see in magazines. That’s what we’re going for.


Home staging brings out the best in your home, accentuating its best features. Some minor repairs might be needed, but don’t worry, your agent should be able to identify the most practical ones with the highest return of investment.


One of the major things we have to consider is your home’s curb appeal. This means how attractive your house looks from the outside, including your lawn, trees, porch, doors and windows.


First impressions do matter in real estate. If you can’t get your buyer through the door, don’t expect them to buy your house.


Consult with your agent and ask them what you can do to improve your home’s overall appeal. If you don’t have one yet, you can begin by packing the things you won’t be needing anytime soon and disposing of all the things you’ll never use again.


Start now


This old Chinese proverb rings true until today: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is today.”


This last piece of advice is literally worth millions. Some people waste their lives wondering how to begin, when the first step was to just start.
