Ten-Steps For Selling Your Home

Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400 311291

Here are the ten simple steps to consider if you're thinking about selling your home:


1. Find a real estate agent to guide you through the entire process and help you list your home online. Get recommendations from others who have had a successful experience.


2. Work with your agent to determine a competitive selling price by examining similar homes recently sold in your area.


3. Discuss with your agent and ensure your home is in top shape before choosing the right time to sell.


4. Prepare your home for listing by cleaning, decluttering, and addressing any issues.


5. Highlight your home's best features with a fresh look, such as a new coat of paint and some fresh flowers.


6. Hire a professional photographer to take high-quality photos of your home.


7. Remain calm and let your agent handle all buyer calls and showings.


8. Consider an impromptu open house. 

9. Act reasonably and promptly when you receive offers, but don't rush into any decisions.


10. Before signing anything, discuss and understand the legal aspects with your REALTOR® or real estate attorney.

Kathy Streib,

You know how overwhelming it is to get ready for that move. Breaking it down into steps can make it a bit more tolerable.

 Selling a home starts with the selection of the right realtor and if that is done right, everything else just flows.
