You have decided that it is time to sell. You are doing all of the necessary repairs to get your home ready to go live. As this time approaches, you need to nail some things down. Here are some questions for your listing agent…
- You can’t change the location of your home. You can’t reasonably add another bedroom or bathroom. Given your current situation and location, ask this question: “What is the highest price I can ask for my home?” Then be ready for the answer. Keep in mind that the same house in another neighborhood or another school zone may bring in a significantly larger amount of money, but you are not in that neighborhood.
- Once you and your agent have agreed upon a price, you can ask: “How long should I expect to wait before receiving an offer?” If your agent is honest, they will look at whether the list price is on the high or low end. A price on the low end may bring in an offer in a matter of days. However, if you are going with a price more on the higher side, you will likely wait several weeks to a couple of months before seeing any offers.
- There are many different views on open houses. A question you will definitely want to ask is: “How do you feel about open houses, and what is your open house strategy for my home?” Different markets produce different results as far as open houses are concerned. What works in one area may not be the right fit for your area. Do research yourself. Ask other nearby sellers about their experiences. Together, you and your agent can come up with a plan of action that best suits your market.
