Learn how working with a professional real estate agent with experience selling homes in your area, can affect the time it takes to sell your home and the value you receive for your home.
If you are in the market to sell your home, your First Step is to call a Realtor. An experienced listing agent can provide insight into the benefits of preparing your home for sale. The most important issue to address is how the home is prepared for the market and steps that should be taken in order to receive the best price for the home.
It is best for everyone to be prepared for the truth about the condition of the home and any recommendations for updates or repairs. We also provide our clients with tips on staging their home so that a potential buyer can easily envision themselves in the home. Remember, having a clean home is not always good enough in the eyes of a buyer.
It is smart to get recommendations for a real estate agent to sell your home, however, you shouldn’t stop on someone’s recommendation, that should only be your first step. You should meet with each real estate agent and have them each to visit you and walk through your home, you can also visit each of the recommended Realtors websites, social media account and read through their testimonials. The prepared agent will bring information with them about recent comparable sales, will help you price your home, and they should suggest low-cost upgrades that will boost your home’s value and help it sell more quickly.
Talk to a lender if you are planning to buy a new home. You’ll want to have your housing plan figured out before you put your home on the market. We have some recommendations of preferred lenders that we work with that you can consider, who will work hard to put together the best financing options for you and your family.
Find out if the real estate agent is a full-time agent or not. Full-time agents are more likely to be tuned into what’s going on the market that will influence your home’s sales price than a part timer. Second, Full-time agents most likely have access to bigger networks of other real estate agents they can tap into to help get your home sold. Find out if the real estate agent works alone or is with a team and if there is a team find out how that works for you. Here at Legends we take care of each client, we all work together to know what is going on and ensure our clients' needs are being met. With our team collaboration, any one of us will be able to help you anytime, so you are never left waiting or feeling alone in the process.
