How a Real Estate Agent Can Help with Selling Your Home, Sale of Multi-Family Units, or Vacant Land
When considering selling your home, you should contact your real estate agent to find out about the entire process—beginning to end—of selling your home. Understanding the complete process can save you time, money, and potential headaches down the road. A real estate agent can help you with selling your home, multi-family unit or vacant land.
Your real estate agent can create a real estate listing for your home that can speed up the selling process. This help to find potential buyers who are interested in your home and increase the number of offers you receive. You can set a minimum acceptable price so that the real estate agent will know how to inform potential buyers. The agent will emphasis the best selling points of the home in the listing such as the age, condition of the home, and amenities that have been added.
There are many things that you can do to increase your home’s value and receive more from the sale. The real estate agent can point out some specific items that will help the home sell better once she has made a complete evaluation of the property. Common improvements that help homes sell better include a new paint job, improving the landscaping, adding new trim, or repairing any plumbing or electrical work that may be faulty.
When potential buyers visit your home, they will notice the exterior of the home first. You will want to make sure they arrive to a well-manicured lawn. You should also clear up any clutter outside your home. On the homes interior, doing home maintenance care such as cleaning the carpets will help give your home a fresh, well-cared for look, and will make the home more appealing to potential buyers.
One other item your real estate agent will advise you of, is to make sure you have all of the proper inspections performed necessary in selling a home. You will have to have your property inspected for any major repairs needed, as well as a pest and termite inspection completed. Doing this just makes good sense and will avoid the new home owners from approaching you with home maintenance issues once the sale is complete.
Once you have completed all necessary repairs and inspections and are ready to sell your home, you will have to decide the best way to show your home. Many times, the real estate agent can show the home for you if you are going to be out of town or perhaps at work during the day. The real estate agent will ask for your preferences and will show your home with these in mind. You may even wish to schedule an open house as a time when potential buyers can take a complete tour of your home. Your agent can advise you as to which options best fit your circumstances.
