How to Sell a Home Yourself
Aug 27, 2021 | Jeremy Duprey
If you’re thinking of putting your home on the market, you may be considering the cost of hiring a real estate agent and decide to tackle the job yourself. You can save on those real estate commissions by selling your home on your own. Here is a guide of what to do and what not to do when you are ready to sell.
Do Find Out Your Home’s Value
The first step before you do anything is to find out what your home is worth. Knowing your home’s value can help you price it right, so it sells quickly. While a real estate agent can access information to know property values, you can also get the information you need. Check out homes that have sold in the past few months in your neighborhood or on your street. Look for those around the same size and age to get an idea of market value. Hometown Development can provide you a fair cash offer within one business day based on current values for your home.
Don’t Make a Mistake with Updates
If you live in an older home, you may be tempted to put some money and effort into upgrading your home. Updates can increase the selling price of the home, but they can also be an added expense. The wrong updates won’t increase the value, but it will reduce your bank account. Other updates will increase the value of your home, but it may not be as much as you’re expecting. With Hometown Development, you don’t have to worry about updates. We buy homes as-is.
Do Consider the Timeline
