When selling your home, there are a few things to consider that may help you get the highest price. First impressions can make all the difference, and improvement of cosmetic flaws both inside and outside your home is imperative before placing your house on the market. In addition, you should ensure that your home is neat and uncluttered; you may want to temporarily move some items into storage to open up space. It is also a good idea to leave a lockbox or key with your real estate agent, so that people who wish to view your home can do so at their convenience. In so doing, you won't have to worry that potential buyers have bypassed your house because a viewing wasn't available. Finally, know your market, and make sure your home is priced appropriately. If you have picked an outstanding real estate agent with a proven track record, you can be assured that they will have a handle on the market and will be able to help make the home buying and selling process as smooth as possible.
Real Estate Agents
Real estate agents are the professionals who match buyers and sellers in the real estate market, but individual agents vary in ability, commitment, and understanding of the buying and selling process. Many states require prospective agents to attend several days of classroom training, followed by a state-monitored exam. The agents who pass the real estate agent exam usually begin working for an established real estate broker. The short real estate course they have attended has taught them the legal rules and procedures for buying and selling real estate. But it has not given them the experience and skills that can only be acquired with time and practice.
Many real estate agents join the National Association of Realtors (NAR), and thus become a Realtor®. These real estate professionals have agreed to abide by the NAR code of ethics.
If you are planning to buy or sell a home, it is important to select a real estate agent who knows your local real estate market and who has a good track record of completed real estate transactions. The Home Gain service can help you, as a potential home buyer or home seller, connect with qualified local real estate agents and Realtors.
