Selling your home can be a difficult financial and emotional decision that requires a lot of planning. Here are four things to think about before you put your house on the market.
How much is my house worth?
Several factors go into determining your home’s market value. These factors include the condition of your property, square footage and location. To get a quick snapshot of the current value of your home, simply enter your address in our free online value estimator tool. You can also look at your property tax bill for a tax assessed value. This is a percentage of your home’s fair value. You can calculate fair market value by subtracting your tax assessed value from the state’s assessment rate, which is typically between 80-90 percent.
How do I sell my product at the highest possible price?
You can increase the value of your house by doing simple and inexpensive things. To make your home more appealing, you can eliminate clutter, wash windows and walls, or install higher-wattage bulbs. The sales price of larger projects like renovating bathrooms and adding bedrooms will typically increase significantly. Staging your home can help to increase the value of your home by helping you paint a picture of how potential buyers will use it.
How long is my home on the market?
The amount of time that your home stays on the market will depend on many factors including where it is located, how competitively priced your home, and how aggressively you market your home. According to statistics, if a property is priced correctly, it should receive an offer within 12 showings. Staging is a great way to accelerate the selling process. Studies show that staging can make it easier for homes to sell 32 percent faster than homes without staging.
