I’m Ready to Sell my Home. What’s Next?

home-kitchen.jpgAre you ready to sell your home? Are you ready to take the first step to living a more comfortable lifestyle? Whether you’re downsizing to a smaller house or moving into independent living, you now have the freedom to find a home that fits your current and future needs.

But you do have one more step to make before you can jump into to a new home: sell your current home. Follow these tips to make the selling process an easy one.

Top 3 Ways to Make Selling Your House a Little Easier:

1. Find out the current value of your house.

Sure, you know how much you paid for your house. But depending on when you purchased the property, the value could have changed drastically. With the help of your realtor, do some research on the market to figure out a fair price range for your house.

2. Find a real estate agent specializing in senior sales.

When selling a home, there are a few basic things that everyone needs. But when it comes to selling homes for seniors, there are a few specialties. Look for someone that is knowledgeable about the real estate market, but also someone who can easily work with what you want and need. Research a few Senior Real Estate Specialists and see if they can help you in ways that other agents cannot.

3. Clean out your closets before the open house.

Begin your downsizing efforts before the selling process. Potential buyers are looking for a house that they could see as their own, not a house that is clearly personalized by someone else. Decluttering can not only help you sell your house faster, but it will also help make the moving process easier.
