Tips for Selling Your Home

  • Take extra care to make sure your home is presentable to buyers. Put away personal mail and items in a safe place. Add flowers or a single piece of artwork to bring out the living spaces.
  • Remove pets from the home or keep pets in their crates during all showings.
  • Take the time to carefully fill out the seller’s disclosure form given to you by your real estate agent. Honesty is the best rule here and buyers will appreciate the background information on the home.
  • If you are selling a condominium or town home, make sure to obtain association documents and hand those to your listing agent. Not sure what these documents are? Your agent will be able to help you obtain the documents.
  • Let your agent know the showing times that work best with your schedule. The more availability your home has to show, the better chances it will sell.
  • Take an hour or two to sit down with your real estate agent and go over the selling process– what is the next step when an offer is submitted? or two? What are the best ways to negotiate? What is earnest money? etc.

frequently asked questions:

WHAT FIX-UPS CAN I MAKE TO IMPROVE THE VALUE OF MY HOME?

The smallest fix ups can make the biggest difference. Fix ups will require some time and money. Although you don’t have to remodel your kitchen from top to bottom, completing small fix ups like repainting the walls, adding new tiles or laminate flooring, and replacing damaged or worn window screens and fixtures– can easily brighten up a room. Don’t expect to get your full investment back either, but do expect to sell your home faster. When buyers see that a home has been well cared for, they feel more secure with their decision to make a large purchase.

WHAT IS MY HOME REALLY WORTH?

Your home’s worth is called the “market value”. Many online websites offer tools to calculate the market value of your home, but these tools usually do not provide the most accurate estimate. Your market value is determined by the activity in the market and that number is best obtained from a licensed Realtor trained by comparing with the most recent sold homes in your neighborhood.

IS THE TAX VALUE OF MY HOME THE SAME AS ITS MARKET VALUE?

The easy answer is No. The tax value of your home is used to assess property taxes and not what your home can sell for. The tax value of your home should not be mistaken for market value.
