First time home selling?

When selling a home for the first time, home sellers have no idea where to begin. All kinds of questions run through their minds like how much will it cost, what if we don’t have enough equity or what if it doesn’t sell? First time sellers need special attention. Where do they start getting on the road to selling their home?

Home sellers especially first time sellers don't know what to expect and can even be afraid they will get hurt in the process. Here are some tips to get your home sold.

  • Check out the agents you intend to interview. The internet will be a huge help in getting you familiar with their skill levels and how much exposure they have.
  • Gather your questions together and be ready to get the answers. No question is silly or should be treated as such.
  • Ask for references and follow up and talk to past clients,
  • You will begin to get a feeling which agent is right for you. It may not be the biggest agent or the biggest agency. The one for you needs to be the one that will tell you straight, has experience and knowledge and has the time to devote to pulling out all the stops to get your home sold. Hire the right agent.
  • Listen to the agent and follow the advice. Pricing and condition are what sells homes.

Keep the lines of communication open. Tell your agent how often you want to hear back from them and by what types of communication. Do not hesitate to call if you have questions even if it isn't on the schedule. Remember periods of silence can make your nervous and feel uncertain but that doesn’t mean that things are not happening behind the scenes to get your home sold.

Debbie, Knowing how your seller wants to communicate is important part of the process. Everyone has their own way of communicating. Best to know right from the beginning and don't be afraid to ask questions...

Yes Sheila their comfort level is most important. The majority of my younger clients like frequent texting. It makes them feel reassured.
