When the time is right and you are ready to list your home for sale in Zionsville, IN, there are certain steps to promote a faster, more lucrative sale. We’ve previously discussed ways to prep your home to sell, and sell quickly, but, there is more to it than just being prepared. There are several things you want to make sure you don’t do so you won’t squash any interest in your Zionsville, IN home.
Going for sale by owner. Going FSBO (for sale by owner) may seem like an easy, low-cost way to sell, but, selling your home without a real estate agent is one of the worst things a seller can do. Just having a sign in the yard doesn’t get you the expertise of a Zionsville, IN real estate agent or the multiple listing service.
Overpricing. When it comes to pricing real estate you need to be comparing apples to apples. All the more reason to use a real estate agent who has a good sense of the local market and can pull comparables to properly price your home.
Refusing the first offer. Even if that offer isn’t as high as you would like don’t outright refuse the offer. All offers are negotiable and should be considered a starting point. Keep in mind, any offer is better than none!
Covering up any problems. Make sure you heed the advice of your real estate agent and disclose any issues, it is the best way to avoid lawsuits and further issues during or after your sale. Be upfront about any issues on the seller disclosure report as they likely will come up during a Zionsville, IN home inspection anyways.
Don’t go it alone. When you are ready to put your Zionsville, IN home on the market please contact a Zionsville, IN real estate agent. We’d be happy to talk you through the selling process and can help you get your home sold.
