Frequently asked questions
Preparing your home for sale can be very stressful. Remember, paint is your friend. Outside and inside, a little paint can dramatically refresh the look of your home. Make sure the yard is neat and the garden flowerbeds are weeded and trimmed. Eliminating clutter inside your home is very important. Remove family photos and personal knick-knacks. If you have major repair items, such as a leaky roof or an HVAC system that is on its last legs, you may need to replace or repair them. Try to look at your house the way a buyer would. Ask a friend to take a look at it and give you their opinion. Hire a stager if your home is considered luxury.
Selling a home yourself can save you money in theory. The standard commission is 6%, so if you are selling a $200,000 home the buyer and seller agents would split the $12,000 commission. But a good Realtor can net you more than 6% on the sales price of your home. In fact, a study by the National Association of Realtors shows that using an agent versus selling your home by yourself nets you an average 25% higher price. On a $200,000 home that amounts to $50,000. Real estate professionals can help you price your home effectively for your market, they know the legal aspects of selling a home, they help negotiate, they can let their broker networks know that your home is on the market, and they know the most effective sales and marketing strategies. On the whole, you are better off hiring a broker to sell your home.
Pricing your home so that it reflects its true market value is crucial for a successful sale. Most real estate brokers agree that the biggest mistake that sellers make is pricing their home too high. Your broker will create a Comparative Market Analysis for your home that shows other homes similar to yours in your market that are for sale and have recently sold. Based on market activity, they will recommend a price range that makes sense where you can choose from a high, low, and middle price range.
