Why You Should List Your Home Now
It’s not too late to list your home and get the benefits of the high market from summer. High market means that house prices are high, but they are still selling. More and more houses are being listed because the market is high, making it a good time to sell. In order to sell your home, follow these steps.
- Call Your Realtor
- Talk to Your Mortgage Broker
- Calculate Your Return on Investment
- Schedule an Evaluation of Home Value
- Declutter and Stage
Don’t have a realtor? Call Chris Foxen, Scott Foxen, or Desi Foxen and they will be happy to help you. A good realtor will get you set up with a mortgage broker, work late nights to get an offer in or a counter-offer, and anticipate your needs and take care of them. Chris, Scott, and Desi Foxen will do all of these things for you.
If you don’t know who to go to for a mortgage broker, ask your realtor. They sell and buy a lot of homes and know who are the good mortgage brokers and who are not. Once you have a mortgage broker, they can walk you through all the steps you have to take to get a loan.
Since it’s a good time to sell, it’s important to calculate your return on investment (ROI). This allows you to see how much you’ll have to put as a down payment on your next house. Of course, you don’t have to put your entire profit as the down payment, but you’ll have the option. Use our ROI calculator to see your projected profit.
A home value evaluation can help you know what price to list your home at. If you want it to sell fast you can put it below its home value evaluation and if you want a fair price you can list it a bit higher and see what people will offer. Use our professional home value evaluation to know how much to sell your home for.
Last but definitely not least, declutter and stage your home. To declutter from storage areas, you’ll want to make them about half full. When there is extra space, it looks like there are no storage issues in your home. Staging your home makes a home feel bigger because stagers will put in the perfect size furniture for each room.
