Our team will walk you through every step of the home selling process, from determining how to maximize your home's appeal to helping you determine the right list price, negotiating the sale, closing the deal and more. Below are some key considerations when thinking about when, and how, you plan to sell your home - while these are the most important pieces to consider, they by no means cover everything. Please reach out to our team with questions on what you can expect when selling your home, or to inquire about how the Southern New Hampshire real estate market could impact your home selling experience.
- Preparing Your Home for Sale - if you're thinking of selling your home, you may be wondering what you need to do to ensure you get the most for your home. The answer to this question varies, as depending on current market conditions, you may need to make home repairs; however, not all repairs will result in a higher selling price. Seek professional guidance to ensure you only spend money on the areas of your home that you have to fix, or that will make a significant difference in your home's value. Additionally, beyond home repairs, there are other steps you should take to prepare your home to be sold, including moving out bulky and excess furniture, potentially investing in or spending time on landscaping work, and more. Home staging is also important - see below for more on what that entails.
- Home Staging - home staging is the process of preparing a home for sale, with the goal being to increase your property's appeal and generate the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling your home quickly and for its maximum value. There are professional stagers you can hire to prepare your home for sale, doing such things as redecorating, adding curb appeal through lawn clean-up and/or landscaping, de-cluttering your home and removing personal elements like photography (buyers want to picture themselves in your home, not you), and more. Additionally, professional real estate agents also often offer staging services and can help connect you with the right person to help you prepare your home. Either way, staging is well worth it as although it can include additional costs, it typically leads to a significantly higher sale price, paying for itself and saving you time.
- Home Pricing - choosing the right listing price for your home is one of the most important decisions you'll make. Often, homes that are overpriced ultimately sell for less than market value and take longer to sell, so understanding all of the factors, including comparable homes on the market, recently sold homes with similar features, market trends and more, is critical.
