Whether you’re relocating to a new area or downsizing, most people will find themselves selling their home at one point in their lives.
Selling your home can be a challenging feat, especially if you’re not sure what to expect. Before you make any decision, it is best to use the services of a competent real estate professional who has experience in selling Shawnee KS real estate.
That would be me, Lea Deo. I have been in the real estate business since 2003. It is my joy to help people meet their real estate needs. Here are four things you should expect throughout the home selling process to help lead to a successful home selling experience.
1. Expect changes
There will be many changes. As you get your home ready for sale, you should work on making your property as marketable as possible. As your real estate agent, I will work with you on creating a plan that will not only show your home in its best light but will give you the best return on investment.
2. Expect inconvenience
Here’s one thing you should anticipate — inconvenience is part of the selling experience. If you want to sell your Shawnee KS home, expect to be inconvenienced in the process. Putting your home on the market entails disruption of your daily schedule, removal of your personal items, and major facelift in some areas of your home.
Maintaining a “show worthy” home is one of the more annoying inconveniences of the selling process. This is especially true if you have kids, but you can make things easier by decluttering as much as possible before listing your home.
3. Expect negotiations
It’s exciting to get an offer on your house. However, there are lots of details that go into seeing the negotiation through to the end. Throughout the home selling process, you will encounter a number of different negotiations. Keep in mind that the choices you will be making when negotiating will have an effect on how much you will walk away with.
You don’t have to worry about this part. As an agent, one of the various tasks I deal with is the face-to-face negotiations. I understand and deal with other real estate agents and speak the same language. I have the knowledge, expertise, and experience to assist you in negotiating the sale of your home.
4. Expect top dollar
Every seller hopes to sell their home fast and for top dollar. So what can we do to achieve this goal?
I will help you understand the market conditions and trends in your area by providing you with a comparative market analysis (CMA). A CMA shows the prices of comparable, recently sold homes and also homes that are currently on the market. Looking at the competition will give you a good idea of where to set your price.
Aside from pricing your home competitively, you can also set the stage for success by showing your house at its best and working with me to create the best marketing possible.
