Typical Hurdles on the Home Sale Track
Find a Great Realtor
The right realtor will make all the difference in the home-selling experience. For this reason, it is important to find a good one. When vetting realtor candidates, look at how well they know the market, their experience level, how many successful sales they’ve transacted, and how comfortably they relate to you.
Get Your Home Ready
Your realtor will advise you on what you should do to give your house the best chance of attracting buyers and getting sold. Having it clean and uncluttered is the starting place. After that, you may need to repaint, re-do landscaping, and take care of important repairs.
Decide on a Listing Price
An easy-sounding task—setting a price—is not always simple. You must rely on your realtor for help. If he or she knows the market, that information will be invaluable in setting an appropriate price.
