When you sell your home, it’s important to ask the right questions. Don’t go into the selling process blindly. This will ensure that everyone is on the same page throughout this timely (and sometimes stressful) process.
What is the typical time frame for selling?
This question is a great way to gain some perspective on the overall process. It can also prepare you for the long journey of putting a home on the market.
What is the best marketing strategy for selling?
This will vary based on location and other factors, but making a home stand out on the market is the most important part. Between social media, mailers, open houses, and professional listing photos, there are many options to choose from to create a strong and successful marketing plan.
How will the listing price be decided?
Money is obviously a large part of the selling process. Knowing the plan to reach a listing price is an integral part of the sale that you want to stay on top of. This is why experienced realtors, like myself, thoroughly study the market so you can get the most money for your home.
What is the best way to stay in communication?
Do you prefer to stay in contacts via calls, emails, texting, or a little bit each? Clarify ahead of time, and make sure the lines of communication are open for you to address any problems as they arise.
What does the staging process look like?
Depersonalizing your home is important, and can take some time depending on how personal your interior is styled. This sometimes means getting an outside contractor involved to make your home market ready. The general rule of thumb is, most buyers want to envision what they how they could make your home theirs.
