If you’re like most people who are selling a home in Lake City, you want to sell it quickly and at the right price – but here are three questions to ask your Realtor® first.
3 Questions to Ask Your Realtor Before You Sell Your Home
- What should I do to get my home ready?
- How much is my home worth?
- How long will it take to sell my home?
#1. What should I do to get my home ready?
Your real estate agent will go through your home with you to identify areas that could use a little TLC before you put your house on the market. He might suggest that you freshen up the paint, update your faucets or light fixtures, or perform minor repairs that could affect your home’s value.
#2. How much is my home worth?
When a Realtor helps a client price a home, he does so by comparing the home to others that are very similar. He’ll look at houses in the same or nearby neighborhoods, and only compare your house to those homes – those that are selling across town won’t have much bearing on what’s happening right in your area.
Your Realtor will compare things like age, size, and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms to arrive at a price. He’ll also account for upgrades you’ve made to ensure your pricing is as accurate as possible.
#3. How long will it take to sell my home?
Every market is different. In fact, even within Lake City, some neighborhoods sell faster than others do. Your agent will know how long, on average, it takes to sell a home in your specific area – and he’ll be able to give you pointers you can use to sell it faster.
