There is a lot involved in selling a house.
Knowing what buyers consider when looking at properties, especially the things they don’t like will help you avoid them when it’s your turn to sell.
Here is a list of 9 things to check when you decide to sell your home from Realestate.com:
- Find the right agent. REIA recommend you make sure your agent is a member of their local real estate institute. Real estate institute members have a “commitment to service and professional standards and are bound by strict codes of conduct.” Interview several potential agents before signing on the dotted line.
- Set a price. You can work with a reputable agent to set a price or you might choose to pay an independent valuer.
- Get involved in your marketing plan. As the vendor you have to cover the cost of marketing your property. So make sure you agree with what the agent is suggesting.
- Decide which method of sale is best for your property. There are advantages and disadvantages to both methods, so make sure you choose the method that is right for you.
- Prepare your house for sale before you put it on the market. Buyers will drive past to check out your property as soon as it is listed, so ensure you make a good first impression.
- Make sure you have all of the paperwork in order. The real estate agent will need the contract for sale. Your conveyancer or lawyer will be able to help you with this.
- Prepare a moving plan. As soon as the settlement is completed, the buyer owns the property. So be organised and ready to move out and leave the property in accordance with the contract of sale.
