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.

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.

Short Answer - Call Me .... You should always start your home selling or buying process with a good Realtor®. We offer services from the very beginning, and we can work with clients months before putting a property on the market. We can help you with staging advise, the right upgrades that will make you more money versus upgrades that won't make any return on your investment.
Most importantly decide where you're going next, and how to get there. Your Realtor® will be able to help you decide where to go, whether to buy another house before you sell, or rent temporarily.
I hope this helps you in your future endeavors.

Dear Kaygene,

If you are thinking of putting up your home for sale I would recommend the following:
1) Declutter (remove everything in the house that is yours except a bed, and dining room table and chairs. ) Your home will look bigger and the buyers will be able to immagine themselves in it
2) Clean the home, It should be cleaner than any Spring cleaning previously done. Wash carpets, empty cabinets
3) See if there are things in the home that need replacement, old carpet, a new coat of paint, and put money away for it.
4) Start interviewing realtors and ask them tough questions:
- how will they market your home?
- what is their marketing plan?
- What a tough situation they'e been in and how they handled it.

It is important that you feel comfortable and open with them, since there will be many ups and downs in the home sale process.

The simplest answer is CALL A REALTOR!

Realtors are back ground checked, licensed, go through hundreds of hours of real estate classes regarding dozens of topics to help you sell your home. They can meet with you ahead of time to explain how the process works, pricing the home, how long will it take, how to get your home ready for the Buyers, how much this will cost you and most important...how much money will you get back.

Interview several Realtors in your area. Google their name, check the TREC website to see the status of their license, get references and more. Plan min 3 months prior to you wanting to move to start the process. Call us if you have specific questions. Realtors are here to help!
