4 Things You Need To Do Before You Sell Your Home

4 Things You Need To Do Before You Sell Your Home

So a family member in another state is Selling a Home, and our conversation was enlightening.

While walking them through the steps to prepare for listing their home, I learned more about how we do business, and I was proud.

Here are 4 quick points that came out of this conversation.

Get clear on your motivation. Why are you going to go through the immense discomfort of selling your home? If you are moving for a job at the end of the next month, you process is going to be much different than needing to be in a different school district in May of next year.

Get a Second, Professional Opinion. Any agent worth their salt is prepared for you to talk to more than one agent. Even in an emergent situation, the extra day or two to meet another professional will certainly inform your decision.

Hire a REALTOR® with a plan. A strategic plan executed by a seasoned professional real estate agent with a critical eye on Chicago real estate market conditions, puts you in the best position to hit your goals.

And when all things are the same, get creative. Ask your agent how the MLS’s Reverse Prospecting tool might be able to help determine Buyers and Price.

Do you feel like you are better prepared to get the ball rolling on selling your home in Chicago? Let us know your thoughts and experience.
