Tips for selling your property

May 14th 2020 at 5:01 PM

1. Competitively pricing your home as a for sale by owner deal. Part of the art of selling real estate is setting a price at home that isn't too high or too low for the local market. 

Homes that are priced too high will not get a second look because agents will look at similar homes in your area and find that the price you are asking is out of reach.

Homes that are priced so low will not get the attention of the best buyers, and if you list it for such a small amount, they will believe that something is seriously wrong with the home.

Right now it is a seller business. You may want to use this pattern to sell your house. But just because homes go in Madison for about $265,000 doesn't mean you can sell your home in Milwaukee for the same price. In Milwaukee, the median sale price is just $129,700.

You need to study your real estate market to get a precise idea of what price listing would attract buyers to come and see your home.

2. Plan, price, and list your home to draw interested buyers The art of selling a home is there. Yeah, you can just put a sign in the yard but you need professional framing, professional lighting, well-written listing notes, local online ads, and shows to make the most of money on a home. You may be good at one of these things, but do you have the experience and skills to make the most of the money to market your house?

Using yours, you can take a picture of your kitchen, but do you know how to take a photo that makes the room look larger than it really is?

You can write a summary of how many bedrooms your home has on for sale by owner but do you know what features are common at the moment that will make potential buyers flock to your house for shows?

If you choose a Smart Joint Agent, you can get the experience of a skilled real estate agent for just 1 percent of the sale price.

3. Negotiate with customers to get the highest deal possible There is also an art to negotiating tactics. By stubbornly refusing to make any compromises during negotiations you can lose a successful buyer. A real estate agent will tell you this.

An industry specialist will be able to tell you when the time is right to make a counteroffer, or whether or not you will decide to pay the closing costs.

Because the seller is making a profit on the deal, they're going to want the sales price to be as high as possible. All of you work together to get the best out for your house.

4. Understand the legal requirements & paperwork Each state has specific paperwork requirements that you will have to fulfil when selling a home as for sale by owner.

You have to prove that you are the legitimate owner of the house you're renting. Divorce and death also complicate certain circumstances of ownership.

You are also expected to fill in a Seller Disclosure Form, as a resident. This legally binding contract must be signed by the buyer and the vender.

If your home was constructed before 1978, you would be required by law to include an EPA-mandated disclosure form for lead paint.

You will need a well written buy and sale agreement. Each information on this paper has to be written out correctly. Not only is the purchase price listed, but you also need to write what fixtures you are including in the purchase, and the type of financing that the buyer will be utilizing.

Before signing or filing any paperwork relevant to your home sale, always consult a real estate attorney.
