Photo by TharrinSeller’s! Start your engines! Making the decision to sell your home is a bit like waving that checkered flag at the beginning of a race, especially today in this “buyer’s market”. The laid back approach to simply list your home for sale and stick a sign in the front yard will put you in last place.

As a seller, your participation and involvement is crucial to the sale of your home beginning with your choice in a real estate agent.
When looking for a real estate agent, go beyond a referral or the number of times you’ve seen their name on a “for sale” sign… You want someone that will work with you as a team. Someone that will listen to you, your concerns, your ideas, your goals. You want experience, not only in years, but more importantly how has their experience sustained through those years and have they managed success in this challenging market.

It is a shame how property value has declined and it can be very disheartening to hear the current dollar value of your beloved home. Make the effort to have a couple Comparable  Market Analysis (CMA) done on your home, but keep in mind the agent with the highest list price is not necessarily the best agent to sell your home. Price is king and you want an agent who will be realistic and price your home to sell. You want buyer’s to see your home as the best deal out there! The right agent will price your home competitively and develop a marketing strategy that will catch that buyer’s attention by seeing the value of your home through your eyes.
