Your choice of a listing agent will make a big difference in how quickly your home sells and how much of a profit you’ll realize. I provide you with a great marketing plan and deep local knowledge. Don’t just go with someone who tells you they can sell for the highest price; promises, promises. Instead, choose someone who can present you with a detailed market analysis and proven results!
While you don’t necessarily want to do a major, expensive renovation project before you sell, you can make minor repairs and improvements that will make your listing look fresher to buyers. Try things such as replacing the caulk and grout in your bathroom, updating old or rusted ceiling fans and light fixtures, and changing switch plates, doorknobs and other hardware for a clean and neat appearance. Consider painting your front door and trim even if your rooms don’t need new paint.
If you plan to buy another home, an important decision to make is whether to sell your home first or make an offer on a new home before putting yours on the market. I can help you evaluate how fast homes are selling in the market and help you estimate how long it will take you to find a home. This decision also depends on your financing, so you may want to consult with a lender to see how you can finance the transition from one home to another if you choose not to sell your home first.
