Hi Kaygene,

To begin the home sale process of your home, the very first thing you'd want to do is reach out to your REALTOR. If you don't have a one, and don't have a friend or family recommendation, HAR.com is a great resource for finding one (Har.com - Agents tab (at the top) - Find a Real Estate Agent). Here you can search based on zip code as well as a variety of designations. I also highly suggest checking the box to only display agents with client experience ratings). The key is finding a REALTOR that you feel comfortable with, who knows your market area, COMMUNICATES, etc! I'd also be more than happy to recommend an agent based on the area of town you are in!

When you discuss listing with your REALTOR, you'll want a breakdown of the current market for your neighborhood / area and an assessment of where your home fits in within the market. Your REALTOR will should advise on any make ready that needs to be done prior to listing to ensure the house shows well and sells for the most money in the least amount of time possible. Make ready can include, deep cleaning, de-cluttering, fresh paint and carpet (if needed), any upgrades (if the market and your pocket book supports it), staging with existing furniture and accessories, etc. The prep work is extremely important. Your REALTOR should also discuss his/her marketing plan and showing process.

When your house is all ready to list, make sure your agent is hiring a professional photographer. I can NOT stress this enough!

Hope this helps!! Feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions about the process!!

I agree with the response you have been given already. Your best first step, whether listing soon or in the future, would be to find a Realtor to assist in your home sale. Use the "find a pro" tool and click those that have a client experience rating in your area of town. HAR requires any agent that uses this rating system have surveys sent to all their past clients, not just cherry picked. I encourage sellers who are not going off a personal recommendation from friends or family, to interview two or three agents. It is a very important decision whom you have represent you in your home sale. You will want a Realtor whom you feel you can communicate freely with, understands your situation, is professional, can freely speak how they will market your home and be able to share from their experience past results. Be sure to look at past listings to see how their properties look online (quality of photos etc)

Once you have selected a Realtor, they can walk you through your home to share thoughts on how to make your home show ready, repairs you should address, and settle on pricing and timing of your listing. There is much more to selling a home than just putting a sign in the yard, posting it on the MLS and praying it sells. Find a Realtor who will help market your home to its fullest potential, communicate with you throughout the process and be able to follow through on all the details until closing.

If I can be of any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

You will need to hire a realtor. I would be glad to interview for your sale. One thing you want to think of is improvements you might want to make to your house before selling it so that you can sell it for top dollars and quicker. We can do these improvements for you also and we have several programs to help you sell your house for more and faster.
Feel free to reach out if you want more information.

Our homes are one of our biggest investments so choosing the right Realtor to work with is very important. I would suggest choosing a Realtor that is knowledgeable in the area your home is located. I also would encourage you to interview several Realtors and find out what each will do to sell your home. There are many different kinds of Realtors and each will do different things to sell your home. I work for a boutique brokerage and we offer a full service experience. I offer my clients free professional photography and a free 1 hour consultation with my home stager because we realize how important it is to present accurate professional pictures when selling your home.

I suggest writing down what is important to you when hiring a Realtor and also your expectations in selling your home. Choose 3 Realtors to interview and see who most closely matches your expectations. Make sure you ask specific questions on how they will market your home to potential buyers.
