Selling a house is stressful. In fact, a recent Daily Mail report says that selling a home may be more stressful than bankruptcy, divorce, or the death of a loved one. Having to put a price tag on a home in which you have made memories and spent time and money on maintaining and improving can be difficult. But hiring a knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent to set the right price and find the right buyer can make the experience smooth and less stressful.
The first step in determining what price your home is worth is talking to a real estate agent. A real estate agent in your local area knows the market and the selling price of other homes comparable to yours. A real estate agent is not emotionally attached to your home and can help you see your home from the view of a potential buyer.
There are several things to take into consideration when deciding on your home’s sales price such as location, age, size in square footage, and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms in your home. Another important factor, especially with families of young children, is the neighborhood dynamics and school system.
A real estate agent will have information on all these details and have access to a comparative market analysis which allows them to see the value of similar homes in the area.
With all of this in mind, you and your real estate agent can come up with a realistic price and marketing strategy to sell your home in a shorter amount of time and at the best price.
