The current buyers market has left many home sellers wondering what they need to do in order to get their home to sell at a reasonable price.
Many home sellers don’t seem to understand that the longer the spend trying to sell their home, the less money they will get for it when it finally does sell. Get the information you need to make wise decisions and make the decisions quickly.
Listen to what the Realtors who have shown you home have to say. Many times they will give you the keys to what it will take to get your home sold. While it is important to find out what their buyer thought of your home, it is much more important to get the Realtor’s impression of the home. If the problems the showing Realtor cites are centered around location, reduce your price and get the home sold. If the showing Realtor cites improvements that need to be done, have them done as quickly and professionally as possible.
Talk strategy with your Realtor!
Your real estate professional may have done all he or she can do to get your home sold. Try to find that out before you sign another listing agreement with the same Realtor. Real Estate marketing is much different today than it was even five years ago. Many Realtors have not figured out how to cope with the new realities of how real estate buyers shop for a home. For example, it is vitally important, if you hope to get your home sold for a fair price, to have your home marketed well on the internet.
Remember, not all Realtors are the same. Interview at least 3 Realtors before signing a listing agreement. At least one of the Realtors you interview should be listed on the first page of a Google search such as “City State Real Estate” as that Realtor is paying attention where the home buyers are.
