Selling your Home

About selling your home

Selling your home; especially if you've never done it before can be time-consuming and emotionally challenging. Strangers will come into your home and poke around in your closets and cabinets. They will criticize a place that has probably become more than just four walls and a roof to you, and then, to top it all off, they will offer you less money than you think your home is worth.

Frequently Asked Questions

With the updturn in home prices, many home owners have increased their equity. Mortgage rates are on the rise making it more difficult for first time home buyers to qualify for housing. This trend looks to continue throughout 2019

One of the most common questions that sellers have when selling a home is if it's worth it or not to hire a Realtor®. Now certainly I'm biased to this question, but there are way more reasons why it's worth hiring a Realtor® rather than attempting to sell a home by owner.

The number one reason why hiring a Realtor® is worth it is because of the knowledge a top Realtor® will have of the local real estate market. By having a strong knowledge of the local market, a real estate agent knows the importance of properly pricing a home for sale. A home that is overpriced will be at a severe disadvantage when comparing to other homes for sale in an area and potentially may not sell.

By now you should be able to tell the importance of correctly marketing a home for sale by reviewing the previous 3 common questions from home sellers. One of the most common questions from home sellers is in regards to the real estate marketing strategies Realtors® use to sell homes.

A home that is priced properly and given maximum exposure should sell in a very short amount of time and for top dollar. Some of the top real estate marketing strategies that top Realtors® are using to sell homes include;

  • >> Online exposure
  • >> Social media
  • >> Content marketing

These are 3 of the most important marketing strategies that top agents are using and what a seller should expect from their agent. Real estate agents who are not using the Internet or not using social media as a channel to give their sellers homes exposure are potentially costing them money and wasted time.

Many home sellers wonder whether selling a home staged or empty makes a difference. There are certainly PROs and CONs to both. There are some buyers who cannot envision their own belongings in a home that is full of other peoples belongings while others prefer to see how a space is utilized. One of the biggest considerations when determining whether to sell a home staged or empty is the price it would cost to stage a home.

If the cost to stage a home is thousands of dollars but the sale price would be thousands higher, it is likely worth staging a home. The answer to this question is not concrete and will depend on each sellers situation.

It's important that sellers ask their real estate agent what they think and why in order to make an educated decision whether to sell their home staged or empty.
