When you’re looking to sell your home, it pays to work with a REALTOR who knows the local real estate market inside and out and has excellent contacts in all real estate related fields. Selling you home is no small task and shouldn’t be left to just anyone. Remember that you are selling a business. Selecting a realtor that’s familiar with the rental business can better help you achieve your goals throughout the sale and improve your bottom line.
Before making the decision to hire, you should request a pre-listing package from your selected realtor. This package should contain and explanation of the selling process you will experience, what forms of marketing the realtor will use and a brief description of the realtors background and experience.
Logic vs. Emotion
There can be a lot of emotions tied to selling your home, especially if you’ve lived in one the units for a significant amount of time or if you’ve put a considerable amount of energy into maintaining and improving the property. While most sellers expect the final sales price of the property to reflect every hour of work and every penny they’ve spent during their time of ownership, in most sales this, will not be the case.
Removing your emotional ties is one of the first things you must do as a seller preparing to part with his/her property. You must disassociate yourself. You should look logically at the selling process of your home and prepare to make decisions based on that logic alone. Despite how much time and energy you have put into your property, a home is only worth as much as someone else is willing to pay for it.
