6 tips before selling your home

Meet with your trusted real estate agent: Your agent can save you a lot of time and energy by guiding you through

the pre-listing phase. They are there to serve you and help you decide if listing your home is the right option.

Pre-qualify to buy your new home: Get pre-qualified to buy your next home before putting your current one on

the market. Working with a reputable mortgage professional will help you understand what you need to net from

your current home and achieve your goals for your next one.

Price correctly: Listing your home at the proper market value is critical to selling your home within a reasonable

time frame. Be cautious of making decisions based on valuations online and instead use your agent’s in-depth

knowledge of the local area as a resource.

Pre-inspection: Home inspections are often a sticking point where a home sale can go wrong. Material defects

may need to be repaired prior to a buyer purchasing the home, so determine these potential fixes before you list,

instead of during the negotiation process.

De-clutter: If your house is cluttered or filled with personal mementos, it can be more difficult for a buyer to

picture themselves living there. Placing large pieces of furniture or family photos in storage is worth the effort

to help your home sell quicker.

Professional photography: The modern-day home search almost always starts online and first impressions are

very important. Make sure your real estate agent uses a professional photographer or company specializing in real

estate photography to show your home in the best light.
