Things to Consider Before Listing Your Place

You are trying to make the decision whether or not to sell your home. Here are some of the top things to consider when thinking about selling.

How much do you owe on your home? This is important to know so you know how much you would have to list your home for in order not to have to pay to leave it. Remember to factor in closing costs, realtor commissions and inspection costs to the amount. If this amount is more that you could get for your home then now isn’t the best time to sell if you have a choice.

What can I get for my home on the Market? Contact a State Wide Realty Co agent and they will be able to give you an idea of how much your home would be able to sell for and how long it may take to sell by researching comparable sales and the current market conditions. This will help make the decision easier for when and if to list.

Does my home need repairs? Are there things that need fixing, replacing or updating? These things can adversely affect the amount you could get for your home. Making a list and getting estimates of how much it will cost to get your home in selling shape will help you to know if your home should be listed now or may have to wait until you can get these items resolved.

Another important factor to consider is when you sell your home, do you have somewhere to go? When you are going to relocate to a different area it is important to know how the housing market is in that area and if there are homes available where you want to move to.

These are just a few things that can factor into the decision of whether or not to list your home. Once you have made your decision to sell, why not SELL with the BEST?
