If you are in the market to sell your home, Your First Step is to call a Realtor. One thing your real estate agent should do is explain to you the benefits of staging and preparing your home for sale. Your agent should also tell you the truth about how your home is prepared for market and tell you what you need to do to get the best price. Unfortunately, having a clean home ready to sell is not always good enough in the eyes of a buyer.
Recommendations aren’t everything. It is smart to get recommendations for a real estate agent to sell your home, for one bad real estate agents don’t get referred. However, you shouldn’t stop on someone’s recommendation. That should only be your first step. You really ought to talk to at least three agents and have them each to visit you and walk through your home. 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.
