Selling your house is something you’ll have to do maybe just a couple of times in your entire life. If you don't know a local real estate agent who will sell your house for free or sell it with a severely discounted commission then it can be a real hassle and a very expensive process.
So you searched “How to Sell Your House'' because of one of a few reasons
Let me take a guess....
- You have none or very little equity in your house so you can’t afford to pay a real estate agents fee which can be very expensive
- You have equity but want to try to save money selling the house yourself before you resort to hiring an agent
- You’re in foreclosure (or heading that way) and just need to sell fast without incurring thousands in agent commissions
- Or you have unpaid debt and need money now
- You can’t wait 3-7 months it takes to sell a house in this market and you want to sell it fast.
No matter what the reason is we are here to help you out. Here are some steps you can take to prepare you for selling your house.
Asses the market
When it comes to selling houses you have what are called COMPS. A comp is a house comparable to yours that recently sold in the area. If there are lots of foreclosures in your neighborhood, that can drag your house price down and the value of the entire neighborhood. Comps help determine the after repair value of your house in the current market. Of course the price will be lower if there are repairs needed.
Asses the house
As a seller, your house should be like new in order to sell at a good price. It is just like selling a car. Would someone pay full price if it needs a transmission? No. Also if there are things unique about the property like solar panels or smart windows they should be mentioned and showed as well.
You should also show what repairs are needed. Does any room need to be repainted? Garage doors? How is the roof? Is the landscaping goof? Is the house structure outdated? Is it up to code? All of these things can make the house more attractive or less attractive. If this sounds like a lot, don't worry just click our contact us page or text directly 678-665-7728.
Have an asking price in mind.
Use Photos or Videos
Use a camera or camera phone to take pics. Taking walk-through videos of the house and using these videos and pics to advertise will help you to reach more people and increase your chance of a sell. In fact, these videos are considered more transparent than taking photos. However, this should not stop you from using the latter option since it is more affordable compared to the video.
So take some great pictures. Take a picture of every room in the house that helps show it off. Take a picture of the house from the outside in a few different angles… people want to see the house before they ever show up to see it. So having great pictures of your house online could be the difference between getting the right buyer quickly… and waiting months and months to sell.
Get Your House “Listed” On MLS And Market It
On the MLS market your house will be on a site like Zillow. Typically people on Zillow want the house to look perfect so that they can market the beautiful pics on the site. Also your agent (the seller's agent) will want 3% of the property as commission.
