Decide

  • Discuss the selling of your house, with the family and all other decision makers.

  • Make sure everyone is on the same page with you.

Consult with Your Broker

Once you've made the decision, it is time to bring the subject to a professional real estate broker.  A broker can help you in:

  • Sales planning

  • Creating To-Do list for the home improvements that would have a positive impact on the sales price of your property.

  • Price analysis and listing price suggestions.

  • Finding  a replacement property (In case you are planing to purchase a replacement property or defer taxes through  1033 tax deferred exchange program.)

  • Finding legal, tax, wealth planning and other professionals

Prepare

  • Follow your broker’s To-Do list

  • Prepare the documents required for listing your property.

Decide On the Listing Price

  •  Choosing the right listing price is one of the most, if not the most important factor in the entire process.

  • Your broker can only advice on the best listing price, but you ultimately make the final decision.

  • If your price opinion is far from your broker’s suggestion, obtain a second opinion.

  • Be aware that your listing price and the market time of your listing will become a permanent and un-detachable part of your property history. Such history will be visible to all other brokers and future buyers.

Emotions

  • Emotions will cause sellers to make decisions that could cause regret afterwards.

  • Make sure before making any decisions, and approving or rejecting any offers to consult with your real estate broker. Your broker can see through an expert lens and could offer you valuable suggestions.

Flexibility

  • Willing to show some flexibility, projects your positive approach and would often be appreciated by buyers and encourage them to respond in the same manner.
