1. Find the right representative
The experience and knowledge of the dedicated real estate professionals at Charleston Flat Fee Real Estate can be priceless. A good Realtor® forms a powerful team with his or her clients that makes it possible for them to have a smooth, successful, stress-free sale.
2. Determine your needs/wants for the sale and for your new home
Selling your primary residence can be tricky because you have to simultaneously be thinking about where you would like to buy. First weigh your priorities – selling price is certainly important, but having a quick and efficient sale can often be worth accepting a slightly lower offer. Talk to your Charleston Flat Fee Real Estate agent and make sure you’re comfortable with where your priorities are.
At the same time, you should be compiling a needs/wants list for the home you will buy. You will probably have to act fairly quickly when your house sells, so any amount of preparation you can do will serve you well.
3. Prepare your house for showing
Underprepared homes can be sales disasters. Your home will never get as much attention from potential buyers as when it is first listed, so clearing clutter, cleaning, making repairs, and putting your home’s best foot forward is essential. Don’t “open for business” until your home is ready to be seen as favorably as possible. Your Charleston Flat Fee Real Estate broker will be happy to provide tips on staging your home to sell.
4. Find out what your local market looks like
Being realistic about your home's sales price is the key to a smooth sale. There is no substitute for the market anaylysis your Charleston Flat Fee Real Estate provides when it comes to local market knowledge.
5. List Your Home!
Lots of photos and online exposure are the key to getting a good response for your listing. By choosing Charleston Flat Fee Real Estate to list your home, you are working with a company that syndicates your home's information to dozens of nationally recognized websites, giving you maximum exposure.
