Selling a home can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it can also be very stressful. At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, we are here to help. Keep reading to learn six tips that will help you through the process. You can call us at (310) 373-0021 for help selling your home.
1. Get your house ready for showings by removing personal items from the home and decluttering
Decluttering – If you are serious about selling your house, then it is a good idea to declutter. Get rid of items that you don’t use anymore or haven’t gone through in a while, and get ready for showings by removing personal items from the home.
2. Have an inspection done on your home before listing it for sale so that potential buyers know what they’re getting into with their purchase
By having a home inspection done before you list your home, you will ensure that the buyer doesn’t get any unpleasant surprises such as structural damage or mold after they close on a property.
3. Be mindful of pricing
When it comes to pricing, you will want to make sure that your offer is competitive with the current market. This prevents buyers from going elsewhere or negotiating a lower price.
4. Get as many showings as possible
Your real estate professional will take steps to ensure that your home is advertised and shown appropriately.
5. If someone offers less than the asking price, be prepared to negotiate
You do not have to accept an offer just because it’s made. That said, your home is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Trust us at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices to provide honest and unbiased advice on what is a good offer and what is not.
6. Understand the timeline associated with selling a property
While some homes sell the day they are listed, and closing is completed within a manner of a month or two, this is not always the case. The specific timeframe it will take to sell your home will depend on a variety of factors. We can help give you an idea of what you might expect.
