Decide to Sell



So you've decided to sell your house. Before anything else it's a good idea to sit down and clarify your motivations and draw up a basic time frame for the selling process.

1.1 Why Sell? Why do you want to sell your house?  Do you intend to simply find a larger home, or do you plan on moving to another neighborhood, school district, city or state? You might think your reasons are obvious, but it would do well to consider the implications of each option for your family's lifestyle, opportunities and finances. Being clear about your intentions for selling will make it easier to determine the most appropriate option for your specified financial, lifestyle and real estate goals.

1.2 When Should I Sell? You should immediately establish your time frame for selling. If you need to sell quickly, you can speed up the process by hiring an experienced agent as opposed to selling it yourself. In fact, few homes are sold by owners.  If there's no pressing need to sell immediately, you can sit down with an expert real estate agent to thoroughly review the current market conditions and find the most favorable time to sell.

1.3 What's The Market Like? When you work with an agent, you can be sure that you'll have agent knowledge, expertise and negotiating skills at work for you to arrive at the best market prices and terms. The agent will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and conditions of competing properties.

1.4 How Do I Optimize My Finances? Deciding to sell your home demands a serious consideration of your current financial situation and future possibilities. With the help of a qualified agent, you'll be able to effectively assess the cumulative impact of these changes, estimate potential proceeds of selling your home, allowing you to plan effective tax savings and estate planning strategies.
