What is the home selling process like?

Getting a real estate agent can be a wise choice, as they can keep you up to date on various types of information that is happening in the market around your house. They can also tell you specifically what needs to be taken care of for your house to sell, get your listing public, and advertise your home on places that a "for sale by owner" could not. They can also communicate professionally with interested parties. Once the final buyer has talked with an agent then that agent can also help with the closing of your house so that the sale is final and you can move on with ease.
How much should I list my home for sale?
When thinking of a price you should take into consideration comparable sales around your homes area and what the market conditions are at the time. By doing a little research online and seeing what other homes sold for in the neighborhood, you can get a good ballpark estimate of where to price your home. You can also hire a home appraiser to help get a good gauge on the listing price.
How long will it take to sell my house on average?
Nationwide the median average is 98 days but that number can easily depend on where you are located and the state of economy. To help expedite the sale of your home, you should improve your property's condition and add curb appeal. By "up-selling" your home and presenting it in a way that appeals to buyers in Palm Beach County, will help sell your home faster.
What factors affect the sale of my home?
This is an excellent time to look around your home and fix anything that screams at you, such as dripping faucets or overflowing gutters. This is where an agent can help you fix the right things and not waste your time or money on things that do won't help. Generally, price and condition affect the sale of your home. If your home is priced competitively and your home doesn't need any repairs, it should sell faster than one that has problems.
What should I do to get my home ready to sell?
There should not be multiple repairs needed as the buyer can negotiate a lower price to compensate for all of the needed repairs (or they could back out all together). So keep your yard manicured, paint fresh, house clean, and odor free. Open counters for space appeal, get the water leaks fixed, and make it look like something you would want to buy for the price that you are asking!
