When you are considering selling your home there are a few considerations that could make the process less stressful. Find a local real estate agent. A local real estate agent will know your particular market. This gives the home owner an advantage in that their agent can rightly assist in setting the listing price.
When selling a home patience is really a virtue! It will sell -- it just may take longer than anyone can foresee. Word of mouth is great. Sellers can spread the word through their contacts or social media as the real estate agent is also doing.
Get Ready! It always happens when the seller is not ready to move yet! Start clearing the clutter and getting rid of anything you don't want to move early on in the process. Sellers don't want to be surprised by a closing date and have to rush around in moving.
Communication is the best way to keep the process smooth. Keep the lines of communication open between you and your real estate agent. This will ensure that frustrations are kept to a minimum and important deadlines are met. Sellers might want to set up days of the week or month to talk with their agent. This way everyone knows that there is set apart time to discuss any upcoming changes or important information.
Most importantly! Breathe, Breathe, and again I say breathe. Relax and let the process work. You and your real estate agent should have a good relationship that both parties are comfortable within the process of selling your property! LaRinda
