Selling a home can be an incredibly stressful process filled with a lot of questions. But what kind of questions are sellers asking their realtor exactly?
1. What Factors Go into Pricing My Home?
When it comes to pricing, there are a lot of considerations that you must make. Some common factors include:
· Square footage
· Number of beds and bathrooms
· A yard
· A pool
While these are some of the most common factors to consider when pricing your home, they also don’t account for demand, which is incredibly high in the Tampa Bay area currently. If you’re still unsure about pricing, looking at other homes for sale in your area should give you a better idea of where the market in your neighborhood is at.
What Do I Need to Do to Get My Home Ready for Sale (Inside and Outside)?
Depending on the condition of your home there may be several things that you need to do to prepare your home for a “For Sale” sign. Do you have a hole in your wall you haven’t bothered to patch up? Is your lawn looking a little wild? Now is the time to fix everything you can and tidy up. Also keep in mind what you want in your spaces when holding open houses. You may want to consider storing any personal items such as family photos or valuables away to ensure that they’re safe.
What Stays with My Home When I Sell?
Anything in your home that’s bolted down, landscaping, and light fixtures are just a few of the things that will need to stay in the home when you sell. If you have a specific flower patch, fixture, or anything else you’d like to keep, it should be specifically included in the purchase agreement.
There’s a lot of questions that need to be answered when selling a home. An experienced realtor can guide you through the process and advise you on the specifics of pricing, selling, and more.
