Seller Questions: Our Top Five Answered!

Seller Questions

Selling a home can be an overwhelming experience.

However, finding the right agent will make the process go smoothly for you and your family. Here are some questions that will make selling your home easy. It’s our job to help you however possible in the process!

How Do I Figure Out a Listing Price?

There is probably no question more important to a seller than what the listing price of their home will be. A serious dilemma can be found on both sides of the listing price; if your property is too expensive it will linger, eventually turning off buyers. However, a house that is too low leaves you with less money in the bank. Find an agent that is knowledgeable about the local market inside and out. They will assess and list your home at the right price!

How Much Will Selling My Home Cost?

There are many different factors to consider when thinking about the cost of selling. Some people get caught up in the lump sum of cash they might get with the equity they have. But there are indeed costs to consider. As the seller, you will more than likely be paying a broker’s commission, closing fees, and possibly more. So plan accordingly and ask tons of questions before you sign a listing agreement with someone.

What Should I Do To Get My House Ready?

Depending on the current state of your house, there are a few things that can be done. Your agent will have ideas for what is necessary as far as repairs or upgrades go. They will also have suggestions for budget-friendly improvements that will not only attract buyers but potentially increase the value of your home. Sometimes it’s even as simple as a deep cleaning or having a staging company come for a visit.

How Long Will Selling Take?

It is very difficult to answer this question yet there are factors that can give us a pretty good guess. The national average is 32 days, but this depends on where you live. While nothing about the transaction is guaranteed, a good agent should be able to provide a ballpark estimate by researching how quickly recent homes in your area sold, what the supply and demand is like, and what type of market your home will target.

How Do You Advertise My Home?

Any reputable agent will have a written plan for selling your home. You will be able to look over their marketing agenda which usually includes how they plan to attract buyers. This includes listing services, open houses, social media posts, and more. Your agent is your teammate throughout the entire selling process. Make sure that you have an agent who is willing to go the extra mile to get you top dollar!
