Whether you are looking for more space or are moving away from the area, you need to sell your house. Doing the right research and accomplishing the right tasks before you list it will help you find a buyer. Here are a few things that you can look into to make the process easier and quicker.
Talk To a Realtor
Research your local realtors to find one that will work with the requirements for your move. This professional has contact with real estate investors who might be interested in your property as well as have suggestions for improvements to the house which will make it sell faster. Set up a time to meet with them to discuss their fees, what is required of them and you, and how soon they feel they can have your place on the market.
Find the Right Selling Price
To determine what your asking price should be, study the current sale prices for houses in your neighborhood that are on the market. Take into consideration that there might be more or less square footage and a difference in amenities such as an additional stall on the garage or a finished basement. You can also check real estate websites to see what a house like yours would list for in another part of the community. Your agent can also suggest a price that will be flexible for offers. Do keep in mind the amount that you owe currently on it so that it can be paid off once the transaction has gone through.
Clean Your House
Once you have your realtor in place, go through every room in your house and clean it thoroughly. Scrub your floors and shampoo your carpeting. Dust the window blinds and ceiling fans as well as any wooden banisters on the staircases. Replace light bulbs that may have burned out to add extra light to the area.
