Some new paint or wall paper is a very cost efficient way to improve the presentation of your home. Also making any needed mechanical repairs will help you to get the best dollar for your home.
Your realtor should compile a comparative market analysis which includes sales prices for similar nearby homes that sold in the last month or two. In addition, many Realtors include prices for homes currently on the market that will be your competition, as well as homes taken off the market because they didn’t sell. Other data Realtors can use to suggest a price range include how many days homes were on the market at various price points and the average difference between the list prices and sale prices on homes that have sold. Other factors include your circumstances/reasons for selling, mortgage interest rates, whether home prices are rising or falling and whether it's a buyers or sellers market.
Your agent can help you by hiring a "stager" who can provide anything from "de-cluttering" and interiror decorating recommendations to staging your house with their furniture
Before you begin to analyze any purchase offer, the most important step is to determine whether the buyer can fulfill the terms of the contract with financing. Your REALTOR® can check on the pre-approval letter that should be included with any offer by consulting with the buyer’s agent and the buyer’s lender. Once you know the buyer can legitimately qualify for a loan you can begin to evaluate the offer by looking at these factors.
When you have a signed contract with the buyer for your home, you may feel as if you can breathe a sigh of relief. But before you can completely relax you need to get to the settlement table.
