Colorado Springs, CO : A Plan Of Action: Selling Your Home

Selling your house cannot be an impulsive decision and you must plan for it. Planning the sale must come before you make arrangements for maintenance and open houses. The largest profits possible from the sale of your house will come when you carefully prepare for the sale.

Strategies to selling your property must include a careful and honest examination of why you want to sell. Everybody has a reason to sell, and for most people, it is the desire to buy another home. Creating lists of attractive neighborhoods, driving around and attending open houses are three excellent ways to get to know the area you want to live in. Making price comparisons between newer and older homes in the area in which you want to live helps to narrow down (or expand) the options available to you.

Begin interviewing real estate agents as soon as you are sure that you want to sell your house. Talk to at least three prior to making up your mind. Do not feel you are wasting their time by asking all three of them to provide a marketing plan that explains how they plan to promote your house. Compare the plans and choose the one that provides the most detailed and sound advice.

Do not select an broker because you agree with the price they suggested for your house. You will be the one to lose in the end if you don’t understand that overbidding for the sake of getting your listing can and does happen. Overstated property prices often result in homes that sell for less than market value.

You will need to move out bulky and unattractive furniture to start and “stage” that which remains for showings. This can be a do-it-yourself project or one in which you hire a “professional stager.” Staging allows for enhancing the finer aspects of your home and is an effective way to display floor and wall space.

Not all repairs are lucrative so you should consider all of them carefully before attempting to do them. If obvious maintenance issues have been neglected, you must attend to those to start. Whether you are hiding scuffs behind a bathroom door or if the siding needs a fresh look, a new coat of paint will do wonders for the appearance of your home. Think of paint chips as symbols for chipping down your asking price and you will be surprised at how quickly you will find the necessary motivation for a new paint job.
