With the current market conditions, more homeowners are prepping their LA home for sale. With prices up, interest rates low, and housing inventories low, this is definitely a time for sellers to take advantage of the market. There’s more to pricing your home and listing it. Take the following suggestions to help ensure a top dollar, quick sale.
Where to Start When Selling Your LA Home
Selling a home isn’t a walk in a park. There is stress involved and many costly mistakes that can be made. Your first step should be to get your home market ready. Go through the home, de-clutter, clean and repair. Tend to the exterior of the home to ensure that it has curb appeal. Once your home is market ready, you are ready for the assistance of a good REALTOR®.
Hiring a Los Angeles real estate agent is an asset and one that provides professionalism, resources and knowledge, as well as a network of individuals, including buyers that will help to ensure the best home selling experience.
Before you hire your agent, you should interview at least three agents. The agent should be able to provide you with clear and concise answers to the following questions:
What is the total inventory of homes on the market and how will they affect my home sale.
- Discuss your home with the realtor, its attributes and downfalls and ask the agent what needs to be done to maximize your net proceeds.
- Ask the agent the number of homes they currently have listed on the market and how they plan on showcasing yours to be in the best light.
- Ask the agent how much time they will spend with you, and how they will communicate.
Once your LA home for sale is prepped and you have your agent, the excitement begins!
