1. Why Do You Want To Move?

Is it problems with the neighbors? Issues with the floor plan? Too much maintenance? What makes you want to sell your home? It may be a simple issue like needing more space for a growing family, or it may be more complex, like issues with the Home Owner’s Association, or you need a different location.

2.  What Issues Does The House Have?

A potential buyer will have the house inspected after they put a contract on your home. Are there any issues that you know about that an inspector will find? Such problems will need to be disclosed to buyers ahead of time. In addition if the issue is major it may impact the pricing of your home. If you want or need to get top dollar for your home, you may also choose to fix the issues before it goes on the market.

3. What are Houses Selling for in your Neighborhood?

More than likely your home will sell at a similar price to the other homes in your neighborhood. Are they selling well? How do they compare to the market average? If the neighborhood sales are slow or below the market value, you may need to wait for prices to go up.

4. Should you Work with a Real Estate Agent?

Some people do all of the preparing, marketing, and negotiating, on their own, but others choose to have an agent assist in bringing buyers to see the home and all the other vital steps to make the most money. A real estate agent is a great person to have in your corner. They can help you decide on any repairs or updates that could earn you more money, and sell the home quicker. They will also gain you a wider audience for your marketing, which can also help your bottom line.

5. What Information Do Buyers Need?

Finally, think about what you would want to know about your home before you bought it? Give potential buyers the same consideration you would appreciate. For example don’t hide issues in your neighborhood such as vandalism or noise. Be open about serious issues that could affect a buyer.
