The Home Purchase Process
Two of the basic questions home sellers ask most often are "How quickly?" and "How Much?" The answers to "How quickly can you sell your house?" and "For how much money?" greatly depends on local real estate market conditions and on preparations you, the seller, make prior to putting
a house on the market.
To assist you in better navigating the real estate process in any market, we have compiled a list of essential steps for home sellers. For a more complete understanding of your specific market, we encourage you to contact us.
Understand the Market
In real estate markets home prices vary frequently and suddenly. To best understand your market, we suggest working with an ERA Real Estate agent. Our team of proven professionals has valuable experience and local market knowledge, including deciphering local market fluctuations,
which can help sellers, like you, prepare their home for sale.
Price It Right
If you set your selling price too high, you risk limited viewing from potential buyers. Price it too low and you may sell it more quickly, but at the possibility of making less money on the sale.
No matter how beautiful your home may be, buyers will compare it to other homes for sale in the market at that time. Therefore, pricing your home correctly is one of the most important factors in getting your home sold. To properly set your price, and your expectations, you will want
to examine the record of home sales in your neighborhood over the past several months. It may sound daunting but we are here to help and can provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA).
The CMA will provide data regarding recent home sales (size, price and number of days on the market) as well as information about homes that have not yet sold. It allows you to view trends and other critical information that can be beneficial as you set a competitive price.
In addition to considering historical pricing information and market trends, it is recommended that sellers also think about including other incentives in the sales offering such as home warranty, assistance with closing costs, etc.
