When you bought your home, you likely used the services of a real estate agent, like Westshore. You found that agent through a referral from a friend or family member, or through some sort of advertising or marketing. The agent helped you in many ways and eventually you found the house of your dreams, made an offer, closed the deal, and moved in.
For whatever reason, now it is time to sell your home and you need a real estate agent again. Many home sellers, especially those selling their first home, tend to think all agents are similar to the one that helped them buy their home.
Although real estate agents can (and do) work with both buyers and sellers, most tend to concentrate more on one than the other, but at Westshore, our team concentrates on both.
When conversing with real estate agents, you will often find that when they talk to you about buying real estate, they will refer to your purchase as a "home." Yet if you are selling property, they will often refer to it as a "house." There is a reason for this. Buying real estate is often an emotional decision, but when selling real estate you need to remove emotion from the equation.
You need to think of your house as a marketable commodity. Property. Real estate. Your goal is to get others to see it as their potential home, not yours. If you do not consciously make this decision, you can inadvertently create a situation where it takes longer to sell your property.
The main thing to remember when getting your home ready to sell is to "de-personalize" it.Get Advice from an Realtor
The truth is that only about ten percent of owners successfully sell their home on their own. That varies by region and the number goes up a tad for professional real estate investors because they are more familiar with real estate than your average homeowner.
Those that do sell their home successfully usually accept not only a lower price, but they net less than if they had sold it with a professional qualified real estate agent, like Westshore helping them - especially in an uncertain market with high inventory.
The name of the seller and the property address will be included in the listing contract. There are many other things that are included, too, and you should be aware of them. When setting the terms of sale, the main thing you are concerned with is the price.
You should have a basic idea of what your home is worth by keeping track of other sales in the neighborhood. Plus, you can ask us to estimate your home selling cost by filling out our form below. We exercise great care in determining your asking price, making sure not to set it too high or too low.
