Preparing To Sell
Preparing to Sell your Home
In general, all home sellers approach the task with the same two goals in mind: get the best possible price for their home and sell it quickly. While the details of the process may vary according to the type of home and local market conditions, the prospect of success is increased by following these eight steps.
Step One: Look Before You Leap
You'd never buy a home on a whim; you shouldn't try to sell one that way, either. So before you do anything, take some time to study the local market and current trends. The best way to do that is to schedule a pre-market consultation.
Step Two: Learn Your Home's True Value
Nothing is more important than setting the right asking price for your home. That's why it's smart to get the help of a professional with the expertise and experience to get it right the first time. That's precisely what you'll receive in a professionally prepared Competitive Market Analysis (CMA).
Step Three: Educate Yourself
While we're confident we can do the best job for anyone selling a home in Chicagoland, we can do a much better job for those who really understand the selling process. That's why our website offers you a convenient opportunity to get a complete education in home selling and home ownership.
Step Four: Choose the Right Sales Professional
In our minds, of course, the smartest sellers are those who list with us, because no one can match the pricing and negotiating strategies, training and resources that each of our professionals brings to the job.
Step Five: Use the Right Tools to Reach the Right Target
A quick, profitable sale is seldom a matter of luck. Far more often, it's the result of a sound marketing plan that makes the most of all the tools a Realtor has at his or her disposal. Choosing to list your home with us those tools are formidable.
Step Six: Give Your Buyer an Added Value...
Whether your buyer is moving from across the country or around the corner, they'll want all the help they can get. And that's just what they'll get if your home is listed with us.
