FAQs on SELLING YOUR HOME

In today’s market, hiring the right agent is the single most important thing
you can do to sell your home.

When is the best time to sell my home?

The truth is the best time is when you are ready! There are pros and cons to each time of year. Historically more homes sell in the spring but homes also sell in summer, fall, and winter. Believe it or not the best time to list a home to achieve the most money is in the winter due to the lower inventory.

How should I prepare my home for sale?

Most of the time renovations are not worthwhile when preparing to sell your home. But the little things like de-cluttering and staging do matter!

How long does it take to sell a house?

Once an offer is accepted an average timeline to closing is about 45-60 days. How long it takes to get an offer all depends on the marketing of the listing agent, the price, and the overall condition of the real estate market. The most important part is hiring the right agent.

Should I use the same agent or company to buy and sell?

Yes! It is vitally important to do this. Dates and contracts need to be aligned properly to protect your current home and deposit money on your new home. Good communication between agents and other key vendors is vital to accomplish this.

What are the costs of selling a house?

Some sellers try to save money on selling costs by selling their own home without the assistance of a real estate agent (also known as FSBO), but statistics show that the typical FSBO home sells for thousands less than agent-assisted home sales. The fact is hiring a good real estate agent ensures you’ll get you the most money for your home.
