How To Sell Your Home For The Highest Price Possible

Aug 17, 2007
People have their own aspirations about an ideal home. It takes a lot of patience and persistence to decorate and design it, and if need arises, to sell it at a satisfactory price. While selling a house many disappointing prices are quoted and it is usually unclear why the property is languishing in the sale list, while other homes are sold in a matter of a few days.

Efforts should be directed at devising ways to get the best deal covered within the pre-set time frame. One need not be in the real estate business. Realtors prove to be very helpful as they quicken and make the process easier. They should be consulted and the market survey should be ensured.

Factors determining the price

There are different factors, which help in deciding whether your home will attract the maximum or desired price. Similar to the skills of the realtor in selling the property, the local financial conditions, number of potential buyers, supply of homes for sale, the structural condition of the home are all the factors that make it desirable.

Making it sell

It pays to take a short tour of the property and view it as a buyer. This helps to identify issues that need to be dealt with. Chalk out all the good and bad aspects noticeable, especially the maintenance work that the house needs, the look and the how appealing it needs to look to get the best price possible.

Assessment

When you identify the defects, correct them and arrange a professional inspection by a skilled realtor to determine the price you could expect. Realtors know the tricks of the trade and would rightly give you an estimate for a nominal fee of $200 to $300.

Listing the house for sale

When the house is fit for sale, it is essential to interview a few reputed realty agents about its listing for sale. The agents would give you the Comparative Market Analysis or CMA that would offer a comparative listing of all homes in the vicinity and the agents opinion of your home. You could consult a couple of realtors, after reviewing their CMAs, before deciding on any one.

Financing

In order to minimize the cash down payment, you could opt for seller financing. You could even offer to carry back mortgages. This can result in getting a higher price and a comparatively quick sale.

The final deal

After taking the necessary steps to make your house the model home for the buyer, you could expect to close a good sale within the customary 90 days. The price quoted could be much less than expected. At this juncture, you would have to bargain and finally decide upon a mutually acceptable price.

The sale of a house can be more tedious than expected. It requires patience and tact to close the deal with ease. The sale would be easier if you know what the buyer is looking for. It is beneficial to advertise in local journals and newspapers to ensure a satisfactory deal.
