Eight Steps to Prepare You to Sell:
Think through the process of selling and explore your commitment and motivation. What is your timeline for preparing the home to sell, listing the property and finding an able buyer? List the unique qualities and strengths that you value in your home. These attributes may be the same reasons that a new buyer will fall in love with your home.
It’s time to connect you with an ERA Landmark Real Estate professional; our associates understand how to best position your property for the market. Review our agent bios, education, interests and client testimonials for more information. Establishing a good rapport with your realtor is important. Our real estate professionals will listen to your needs, answer your questions and help you understand the current market conditions. A dedicated real estate professional will simplify the seemingly endless details that selling a home entails and keep the process on track.
Price Your Property to Sell: When interviewing selling agents, ask them to prepare a marketing plan for your property as well as a CMA (Current Market Analysis). This information will help you better understand the market trends and conditions. Do not choose an agent solely based on their suggested asking price. Overpriced homes sit on the market longer and often sell for less then market value.
Detach yourself emotionally from your home. Realize that potential buyers will be looking at the property through their own eyes and will want to personalize the property for themselves. Remove or replace favorite items that do not convey with the property. Consider renting a storage unit to store personal items and possessions that distract buyers from seeing the home itself.
Discuss with your selling agent the need for minor repairs and schedule to have fixed. Sellers may hire a home inspector to advise them of concerns that could be addressed before a buyer gets involved. Take the time to really let your home looks its best. Deep cleaning, scrutinizing and staging your home can help it to stand out against other listings in your neighborhood.
Don’t forget to take a look from the outside. Most buyers will form their first impression of your property before they even walk in the door. A well-maintained lawn and exterior will enhance your home’s curb appeal.
A well-priced, well-prepared property makes for an attractive start to selling your home. Expect periodic updates on changing market conditions and property showing reports from your realtor. Be realistic about any feedback that you receive and consider price adjustments or buyer incentives as the real estate market modifies.
Best wishes for a smooth process in selling your Bozeman, Big Sky, Livingston or Ennis, Montana Real Estate.
