10 Seller Home Run Tips:

  1. Hire an agent that has a proven track record in your market area. It’s sometimes best to avoid working with family and friends. Keep your family financial business private.
  2. Get a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) on homes that have sold recently in your area. Also compare your home to your competition. Price it correctly.
  3. Make it clean, smell good, bright, and cool. A fresh coat of a neutral paint color is usually a good idea. Mow the grass prior to showings and leave snacks for the future buyer.
  4. Get an estimate on your total closing costs prior to listing the property.
  5. Make sure your home is staged well for pictures and showings, listed on the MLS, is using Centralized Showing Services to schedule showings/feedback, and has a Supra keybox on the home.
  6. Don’t just accept any offer. Make sure the buyer is pre-approved and is able to close the deal. Negotiate a lease back to allow you ample time to move out after closing.
  7. Don’t agree to fix everything on the report. Some items are more cosmetic and can be repaired by the future buyer. Also, in lieu of repairs may suggest giving the buyer a credit towards closing costs to let the buyer hire the contractor of their choice.
  8. Remove, hide or lock up any valuables, prescription drugs, financial documents and jewelry from home.
  9. Don’t take feedback personal. There’s a buyer for every property and you just need one buyer.
  10. Ask your agent, lender and inspector lots of questions and don’t assume anything.
