Whatever your story, let’s just say it’s your first time selling a property. There’s plenty of tips out there for first time buyers, but what about you, the first time seller? Well...
Here’s what you can expect:
Selling doesn’t have to be brutal, but the nature of this beast is just fundamentally different to buying. The main reason, I think, is that when you bought your home, you probably weren’t nearly as emotional about it as you are now (eek)!
I can pretty much guarantee that you won’t be as chilled out as you were when you got the keys to your first home :/
But there can also be some pain points...
For example, there may be things about your home, that buyers may not love the way you do. Some of the feedback you’ll receive will hurt. The best, most professional listing agents will be able to predict these and let you know in advance of the listing...these might even be things that can be addressed up front. Your agent’s role is to present your home in the best possible light, and that begins at the listing presentation, where they will (sensitively) give you all kinds of real advice.
Try to view your home for a moment as if it is not yours (this is incredibly hard to achieve). There are good and bad elements to all homes, and every product has a market value.
Going into your listing presentation with an open mind will help enormously.
A positive mental attitude really helps in this industry, so ready your home for every showing as if it’s going to be your last and let’s work together with energy to sell this puppy. We’ll take care of phenomenal photography, twilight front photos, the most incredible in-house videography money can buy, and the best social media platform in town. We’ve sold many many homes in multiple offers this way and we might well make that happen for you.
We’re proud of how accurately we price homes, but while we’re some of the best around (we have an appraiser on our team), we’re also human, and markets change, so you’re going to want to be prepared to adjust the price if necessary. You have your goals & timelines, and we’re here to give you advice that’s in your best interests, so that you ( the boss) can make the decisions which enable you to reach those goals.
