If you are looking to sell your house and have no idea to do so, do not worry this article will the major points that need to be considered before selling your home/house. Although, selling a house can be a hectic and tiring thing to do but it’s not something that can’t be done.
Below, you’ll find some tips for selling a house which needs to be checked before to get a reasonable price, a price that you are happy and satisfied with, so, what’s the wait for? Let’s get started.

1. Finding a Suitable Listing/Real Estate Agent

Even though, as you may know, Real Estate Agents demand a hefty commission, based on the percentage of the sale (usually 5 or 6 percent), hiring a Real Estate Agent is the first good thing to do before selling your house. A good agent will help you set the price reasonable which helps in selling the house quickly. A question arises, how do I find a good real estate agent or a listing agent? Well, you can’t just go and land an agent, you need to make a list of some of the good agents that work in your area, interview them, skim them to a few options and the with thorough thought hire one.

Selling a House

Hiring one is the first good step to take for your house to be sold at a very reasonable price that may yield you a good profit. However, hiring an agent is a very good step indeed but it’s not necessary, it’s not something that you definitely should do, many people do sell their houses themselves but for that, you’ll need to do your own research based on the similar properties sold in your neighborhood or in market and then plan accordingly.

2. Pricing your home

I’d say Pricing the home is a million dollar question, no one would ever forget to ask that because basically that is why we are selling the house, however, you need to keep in mind that your house should not be overpriced, if it is overpriced, you may lose the interest of potential buyers and they may divert their interests to more similar homes in the area. For quoting a reasonable price, the listing/real estate agent would quote you a reasonable price, he has enough knowledge to put a price on the house.

3. Prepping the home

Now that, there is an agent and you have the price tag looming in your head, it’s time for you to prep your house. As it says, First Impression is the Last Impression, you would be needing to make that impression so good that is lasts a good memory for the visitors checking your house out, and not just In Real Life but as well as on the Internet, which means that you have to declutter your house, making necessary repairs and having to list your home, for the buyers to surf and see on the internet.

3. Marketing your home

Marketing, the very essential field, for anything that needs to be sold, without it you won’t catch the attention of anything. Hence, in the same way, you need to market your home. Buyers look at thousands of listings and then skim their way to the homes that are well within their reach to buy but the question how would your home/house catch their eye? That’s where the marketing comes in, you need to make a good impression of your house by taking good pictures and posting them online, on the website where your house is listed so that It gets as much attention as possible.

4. Home Showcasing

Nowadays, with everyone getting smart and the world moving quick, it gets hard to convince someone, hence the Showcasing of your house comes in. In todays world, you might have to host an open house to showcase your assets and your house, giving the buyers a first hand experience. Again, the agent in here, will prove very valuable, having enough knowledge, and with organizing and advertising, a good agent can make sure the open house is a success.

5. Offers

After doing all the things that are necessary, it’s safe to say that you’ll be now receiving offers, yes a Plural and it’s true, you might be receiving offers. Assuming you have collaborated with your agent well, it’s likely that you’ll be receiving or may already have received attractive bids, your agent will review every bid to determine which is the best choice for you.

6. Negotiating with the Buyer and for Home Inspection Repairs

When you and your agent have landed and finalized a bid, it’s time for the Buyer-Seller negotiation, where there are different demands which depend solely on both of the parties. After negotiating, the buyer asks for Home Inspection Repairs which is a time of anxiety for both the parties, the buyer inspects the house from top to bottom asking for necessary repairs from the seller but don’t worry, the agent that you hired in the first step will again be here to facilitate you and also, the Home Inspection Repairs gives your some room for some more negotiation which is a good thing.

7. Closing the Sale

This is the final step for selling the house, closing the sale. This is the place where you sign the final paperwork, making the whole thing official and collecting your check but before that can happen you may have to do a Final Walk Through with the buyer if there is anything left to be done or for troubleshooting. If all’s well, your house is now sold and you have now fulfilled the purpose.

With all the steps above and with them being done thoroughly, you have a huge chance of landing a good bid for your house to be sold on a very good/reasonable price yielding you for a good profit.
