The process of selling your home can be daunting. How can you make sure it doesn’t simply sit on the market, languishing, while you try to move forward? While here are no guarantees in life, there are things you can do to help your home sell quickly.The housing market has shifted in the last year due to rising interest rates, but there is still high demand thanks to an inventory shortage that is helping maintain sales.When it comes to selling your home quickly, here are a few key tips to keep in mind:

  • Make sure your home is looking its best. This could mean some simple staging or decluttering, or it could entail some repairs needed to get the house ready for market.
  • Price your home appropriately. Know what comparable homes are selling for and have a comparative market analysis created to support the price you set. Buyers are looking to make rational decisions and the data you provide to support the pricing also will support the appraisal.
  • Hire a professional real estate agent. Having someone with the experience you need to navigate the slower market will make such a difference. When you have an experienced, professional real estate agent, they will help create an outlined marketing plan, plus assist in negotiating pricing, repairs, title snags and anything else that may come up.

The most important thing to remember is to keep calm. Many things can happen during the selling process, but a good real estate agent will help you find the right solutions to keep everything moving along. At Select Realty Group, you can find the expert you need to guide you through the process. I’ve been a licensed real estate agent since 2008, obtaining my broker’s license in 2010. Having worked through both down and up markets, I have the skills and knowledge to help my clients navigate both buying and selling.
