How to Sell Your Property Successfully?
Here are few tips to make the entire property selling process as smooth and flawless as possible.
Choose the Most Active Real Estate Agent
Choosing an agent can be a daunting prospect. However, it is essential to choosing the best one because you will have to work closely with him throughout the campaign and for that good communicative relationship is important. A great way to narrow down your list of prospective agents and choosing the one must be based on his previous performance and only then, you should allow him handle your property transaction.
Before finalizing one, you must ask about his fees and charges and how they manage sales campaign and check his previous track record.
Negotiate on the Cost
Selling a property is not a cheap proposition and depending on the value of your home, it can cost tens of thousands in form of agent's fees and marketing expenses. Marketing expense can vary depending upon the value of property and the numbers of advertising mediums used during the campaign. The agent's commission is usually 1% of the final sales price but if someone tries to grab more, you can negotiate with him.
However, you don't need to negotiate, if the agent is already asking for 1% commission only.
Prepare a Campaign
After seeing the legal aspect such as property title deed and tax papers and preparing your home for staging, you must ask your agent to take photographs of your abode. Almost all experts send online listings to all leading property portals and may not need to go for the print ad option. Once the listing is updated on the property portal, it is the right time to get things done that you may have been putting off for long.
Do all the needed updates and renovations such as paint, new light fitting or giving uplift to your lawn because your home should be presented in the best possible way. If you are not sure about something, ask your agent.
Sell Your Home
This is where it gets exciting and nerve wrecking too because all that you were planning suddenly gets real and your property is now on the market. If you are lucky, you will start getting queries from serious buyers within first week. The key is to be noticed immediately as soon as you put your home on the market for sale.
Experts suggest taking the best offer as soon as you get it because people take interest in the new listings and if your property is out there for like weeks, people may start moving ahead with other options.
