Decide to Sell
So you've decided to sell your house. Before anything else, it's a good idea to sit down and clarify your motivations and draw up a basic time frame for the selling process.
Why sell? Why do you want to sell your house? Do you intend to simply find a larger home, or do you plan on moving to another neighborhood, school district, city or state? At first your reasons may seem obvious, but you would do well to consider the implications of each option for your family's lifestyle, opportunities and finances. Being clear about your intentions for selling will make it easier for your HomeSense® Realty Agent to determine the most appropriate option for your specific financial, lifestyle and real estate goals.
When should I sell? You should immediately establish your time frame for selling. If you need to sell quickly, you can speed up the process by hiring an experienced HomeSense® Realty Agent as opposed to attempting to sell it yourself. If there's no pressing need to sell immediately, you can sit down with a HomeSense® Realty Agent to thoroughly review the current market conditions and find the most favorable time to sell.
What's the current state of the market? When you work with our agents, you can be sure that you'll have our knowledge, expertise and negotiating skills at work for you to arrive at the best market prices and terms. HomeSense® Realty will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in the marketplace including the price, financing, terms and conditions of competing properties. With HomeSense® Realty Agents you'll know exactly how to price, and when to sell, your home.
How do I optimize my finances? Deciding to sell your home demands a serious consideration of your current financial situation and future possibilities. With the help of a HomeSense® Realty Agent, you'll be able to effectively assess the cumulative impact of these changes, estimate the potential proceeds from selling your home, and implement effective tax savings and estate planning strategies. HomeSense® Realty will ensure that you not only take control of your finances, but that you will use them to their fullest potential.
