In real estate, timing is everything when attempting to get the best deal for your home. You also need a selling agent who knows how to help you time your sale to get the best offer. When you contact Jerry Martin, you contact someone who knows what it takes to get your home off the market quickly and attract the best possible offer.
How Much Have Other Homes Sold For?
The baseline to understanding what a good price for your home is are recent home sales. If the home next to you sells for $100,000, you will want to get at least $100,000 for your home assuming that they are equal. However, you should also compare relevant features between you home and homes that have recently sold when coming up with a list price. For instance, you may get less if you have fewer bedrooms than surrounding homes, but you may get more if you have an extra bathroom or more square footage.
When Should You Sell Your House?
As a homeowner, you have the right to sell your home whenever you want. However, you are likely to get more during the spring and summer months when there are more buyers on the market. You are also more likely to attract a buyer who is willing to pay in cash or otherwise can make the deal without any concessions on your part. Of course, you may want to consider offering concessions to help finalize a deal. This is where having an agent is valuable because you will get good advice as to how to proceed if you aren't sure what you want to do.
What Else Should You Know About a Home Sale?
The most important part about selling a home is being upfront and honest with those looking to buy your house. While you don't need to inspect or look for damage or other weaknesses, you need to disclose any issues that you know about. Failure to do so could hold up the closing, and you can be sure that the buyer is going to want to do an inspection of his or her own.
